sloop.splitter is a realtime sound effect program. It samples sounds from any source and dissects them. It searches for waveforms and repeats them from one repetition to thousands. So, it generates synthetic sounds from natural ones. The waveforms are never deformed, only repeated, so always natural waveforms are played, but in a more or less synthetic way. The number of repetitions constantly changes from one (the identical sound) to thousands and back. It tries to show the transition between the synthetic and the natural.
Alphabet Soup is a project which attempts to determine a number of things about the shapes of letters in several different writing systems. First, it hypothesizes a set of basic building blocks that all letters are built up from. Second, it hypothesizes a set of rules, a grammar or syntax, which defines how those pieces combine to make different letters. It can generate individual letters, randomize letters in an input string to create weird but readable text, or generate random strings of symbols.
PyMP3Cut is a Python command line tool designed to cut huge (> 100MB) MP3 files at high speed without requiring the extra disk space and processing time usually needed by visual audio editing tools, which convert the MP3 format to more easily manageable formats like WAV before doing anything. It reads and cuts simultaneously according to the autodetected MP3 frame rate and a timeline passed as a command line argument. It doesn't currently deal with Variable Bit Rate (VBR) MP3 files, though.
DMI Gallery is an editor-oriented image gallery application based on DMI. The editor just needs to FTP full-sized pictures into the directory and small and medium-sized thumbnails are automatically created. If a text documents with the same name as the picture is uploaded, it will be inserted as a description. DMI Gallery provides a complete set of navigation controls, and allows designers to create templates in their favorite HTML editor to customize the look and feel of the image gallery.
XELand generates night landscapes as stereo pairs for cross-eye viewing. Currently it uses two map generation methods (plus some variations). Generated height maps are seamless and can be saved as PNG images. The program requires only JDK 1.5 or above, and is very easy to use. To take full advantage of XEland you should learn cross-eye viewing.
