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.

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.

Csound is a powerful and yet easy to use musical synthesis package. Csound was constructed in the tradition of so-called music-N languages, among which the best-known is Music V. It consists of an orchestra- and score-driven executable, written in C for portability. Since Csound is a computational language, it is highly flexible and efficient; complexity is gained only at the expense of computation power. Basically, Csound reads some files and creates the result as a sound file on disk or, on faster machines, in real time through a DAC.

Pysco is a neat utility for CSound. It generates CSound note events and saves to a score file, with unlimited separate output time-streams ("tracks"), unlimited simultaneous different tempos (each track can have its own tempo, including independent accelerandos and ritards), unlimited named "chunks" of events, and many more functions to provid automatic time updating so that the user doesn't have to count beats all the time. It also selects ranges of musical chunks by beat value.
