Khronosphere is an audio recording tool. Its special feature is a buffer that keeps capturing audio even before the actual recording is started. This enables the user to prospectively catch any interesting sound that normally would have been lost. The buffer size is freely definable by the user. The software itself places no restrictions; the only limits are the resources of the host system. Khronosphere is very similar to and inspired by Jack Time Machine. They both have the same basic concept, but Khronosphere supports larger buffer sizes.
din is a software musical instrument and audio synthesizer.

You can also create an unlimited number of drones and sculpt their waveforms. It uses JACK to output audio, and supports MIDI, OSC and IRC bot for input. din can be extended and customized with Tcl scripts.
