Synaesthesia is an eyecandy program that represents music graphically in real time as coruscating fields of fog and glowing lines. It is intended as a visual accompaniment to music. Its display combines information about the frequency, location and diffuseness of sound. It can take input from CD, line, piped from another program, or from EsounD. It also functions as a CD player.
cdstatus checks for drive errors, outputs disc information (such as type and table of contents), and is capable of ripping full CDs, using configurable track ranges and retry counts. It handles cddb lookups and makes use of per-user .cdstatus configuration files. It usually produces identical output to cdparanoia with much faster execution. It features direct-to-lame MP3 encoding and Ogg Vorbis encoding, as well as twolame support.
The MusicBrainz client library (also known as mb_client or libmusicbrainz) is a library for developers that wish to add MusicBrainz metadata lookup capabilities to their applications. It calculates CD Index IDs and Relatable's acoustic fingerprints, and looks up the metadata associated with the calculated IDs.
SBAM (Software Based Abled Mixer) is a new approach to computer-based DJing.. This project aims to help DJs concentrate on the important aspects of DJing and to decrease the stress factor. It is intended for the DJs that have no need for beatmixing or other advanced mixing techniques, which means you'll be limited when it comes to creative individual mixing of tracks. Instead, you'll be able to concentrate on finding the right track for the audience.
auCDtect is a tool for analyzing the spectral characteristics of audio files and determining if they have been compressed with using codecs. It is useful for checking if a compact disc has been recorded using MP3 files or from an original source. Tests shows that it is more than 95% accurate.
somaplayer is music player for MP3, Ogg, wav, audio CDs, MP3 streams, and Ogg streams. It is able to use the appropriate sound drivers or demons or to stream directly to an Icecast server (Icecast2 or SHOUTcast) or to encode in MP3 and Ogg Vorbis. It also acts as a sound daemon that is able to accept connections from other somaplayers or any other sound player (xmms, mpg123, and others) thanks to a special wrapper.
Find Duplicate Music Files detects music files that contain the same music, even if the files are differently named, and are in different formats such as MP3, OGG, WAV, WMA, M4A, and RealAudio and contain different or non-existent meta-information such as ID3 tags. The program operates on whole directories of music files, analyzes them, and outputs the filenames of pairs that seem similar, based on their audio fingerprint or perceptual hash.
bbJewel creates a PDF of a cover for the listed MP3 files for the purpose of printing a jewel case insert. It parses each file and extract the title, artist, and length of the recording. It also scans the files for included cover images. You can provide the CD title and the cover image to use on the command line.
