MrsWatson is a commandline audio plugin host. It takes one or more plugins, sends an audio signal to them for processing, and saves the resulting output. Although the plugins think they are running in realtime, processing is actually done offline (this is not the same as the "offline" processing in VST terminology). This makes MrsWatson ideal for developing or debugging plugins, or processing audio on a server.
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.
Newpods can help you sync recently downloaded podcasts to your portable device. It will look through a directory tree to find podcasts that have been downloaded since the last time the program was run. It will then insert two commands into the bash history list: one to pushd to the podcast directory on your portable device, so you can clean out old files as needed, and one to copy the new podcasts to your portable device. If you're tired of copying files by hand, but don't want to use a heavyweight GUI solution, newpods might be right for you.
Naiocast is a Web based streaming server, similar to SHOUTcast and Icecast. It currently supports MP3 audio streams only. It can be used to create an Internet radio station or a privately running jukebox. It requires neither expensive dedicated servers nor compilation on the target machine. The project includes: Naiocast Server, which accepts a stream sent from a computer and sends it to listeners over standard HTTP; and naioSC, which sends the audio stream to a Naiocast server to broadcast to clients. It runs typically in the place where the audio is generated.
Switch is an easy-to-use sound file converter which can convert audio files from many sources into MP3 or WAV format. A variety of different audio file formats are supported for input, including WMA, MOV, and AIFF formats. MPEG Layer-3 encoding is done using the LAME codec, and provides complete control over mode and bitrate selection. Wave encoding allows the user to cconfigure encoding technique, bit rate, sampling rate, and number of channels. It can also play tracks prior to conversion.
MilkyTracker is a multi-platform music application for creating .MOD and .XM module files. It attempts to recreate the module replay and user experience of the popular DOS program FastTracker II, with special playback modes available for improved Amiga ProTracker 2/3 compatibility.
TwistedWave is a very easy-to-use and powerful audio editor. It supports Audio Unit plug-ins and many file formats, including wav, aiff, caf, mp3, mp4, FLAC, and Ogg Vorbis. It has good multichannel support, so you can apply Audio Units to a selection of channels. It supports unlimited undo and redo, which work instantly. Zooming in and moving around the waveform is very fast, even with very large files. All the effects are applied in the background, saving a lot of time.
Phelix is a duplicate file removal tool with an acoustical audio matcher. Duplicates with bad or missing music tags but the same or similar sound will be detected by the matcher, even if audio signals are shifted, start at different moments, are ripped with different bit rates, or are ripped with different volumes. It is designed to work well on multi-core systems. Files are never deleted, but are moved to another directory for inspection.
