musutil includes several utilities for working with a music collection. The principle one is musview, which generates a number of "Views". Each View, analogous to a database view, is an alternative presenation of the original files. The View can selectively include only some files (based on their properties) or have files processed into into a different format, with audio filters applied, adjusted tag data, or a different filename.
Audio::BunnyMusicFile is a Perl module for working with a music collection in a high-level way. It supports the decoding and encoding of music files, tag editing, and naming based on file properties. The behaviour of the module is controlled through a flexible configuration file, allowing consistant behaviour between user applications.
The Kowalski project aims to provide a data driven, lightweight cross platform audio solution. The target audience is developers of games and similar applications where real time audio plays an important role. The Kowalski engine, which is the runtime component, relies only on host-specific external libraries to pass the final output buffers to the audio hardware. All other processing is done in the engine code. Features include positional audio (distance attenuation, cone attenuation, Doppler shift, binaural panning), real time Ogg Vorbis decoding, a powerful mix bus system, and tools to build, validate, and view Kowalski data.
DaisyDuck provides the ability to playback Daisy 2.02 online books and local books (reachable directly on a physical media). The interface is simplified for quick handling, even for people with a handicap like partially sighted persons. Intuitive keyboard shortcuts provide an easy way to access the functionalities of the application and to navigate within books (by chapter and by paragraph). DaisyDuck automatically saves the position where the playback of a book was interrupted. Then, when this book is reloaded, the playback begins at the last position without any action of the listener.

XOSDVolume is a graphical sound volume level indicator. It monitors the audio mixer device, and whenever there is a change, it displays the current volume level on an OSD-type window for a short time. It supports real transparency by using the X Shape extension, without the need of an X compositing manager.
Orc is a library and set of tools for compiling and executing very simple programs that operate on arrays of data. The "language" is a generic assembly language that represents many of the features available in SIMD architectures, including saturated addition and subtraction, and many arithmetic operations.
