Kangas Sound Editor lets you synthesize sound effects and music effectively from scratch. Musical pitches are constructed using a system of frequency ratios, rather than the conventional equal-temperament notation. MIDI pitch numbers can be used to specify a base note from which other notes are relative. The user interface uses a system of cells or boxes, which are placed using drag and drop, and that have associated properties which describe various characteristics of the instrument, sound, or chord group. There is a kangaroo theme to this software.
DR14 T.meter is a commandline tool for computing the Dynamic Range of your music according to the procedure used in the offline meter released by the Pleasurize Music Foundation. It is very useful to measure how loud your music is and to understand that a good quality album always has a good dynamic. It's also useful for understanding the effects of the so-called loudness war.
Jipes is a Java library that allows you to efficiently compute audio features. Possible uses for these features are general music information retrieval (MIR) applications or, more specifically, personal music software. Unlike many other digital signal processing (DSP) libraries or frameworks, Jipes is not meant for real time processing of a single audio stream that is manipulated and eventually played back. Instead, it focuses on efficiently executing mutiple processing pipelines that transform a signal into a feature or feature set. Since Jipes focuses on features instead of the raw, untyped signal streams, it supports rich types to be used, where other frameworks only offer arrays of raw data. Also, by using Java generics, many core interfaces and classes can be typed to whatever class you see fit for the purpose. However, Jipes also comes with useful pre-defined types and support for raw arrays.
