The CMU Midi Toolkit (CMT) is a collection of software for writing interactive MIDI software in C. It includes a number of handy utilities along with an application "shell" that provides timing, scheduling, and MIDI interfaces that are portable across DOS, Mac, SGI, and Amiga platforms.
Entagged is a Java audio file tagger which uses the freedb online database for the retrieval of the tags. It supports custom file renaming based on the tags (with any directory stucture), as well as custom tagging based on the file names. MP3, Ogg, and FLAC are currently supported.
MP3 Automagic CD Cover Creator (MACCC) creates printable CD covers (inserts, frontcards, traycards, etc.) for MP3 CDs (front and back for jewel cases, front-only for slimline). The covers it outputs are in PDF, CDInsert, CDRLabel, HTML, and .txt formats. These covers are great for use with in-dash car MP3 CD players.
The MP3 Streaming DownSampler for PHP is written with cable modem/DSL users with low upstream caps in mind. Using LAME, it dynamically downsamples a requested MP3 to a bitrate which can be streamed. It doesn't use temporary files, so you don't have to take the time to do any batching, and you just give it a directory with symlinks to your music in a place the Web server can reach. The interface is simplistic and fast, meant for immediate plug and play access.
Music Box is a handy database for your music files. If you have a large collection of them, it will help you to organize and keep them in order. Tracks can be grouped by artist, album, genre, volume, or category. Tracks can be organized into as many categories and subcategories as you need. A search function allows you to find the CD or DVD on which you stored your tracks. Music Box reads and edits the metadata information of the tracks (ID3 tags, iTunes AAC tags, etc.). The MP3, AAC, MP4, Ogg Vorbis, Monkey's Audio, and FLAC formats are supported. Music Box's data can be exported to HTML, text, or XML.
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.
Nyquist is an elegant and powerful language for sound synthesis and music composition. Unlike score languages that tend to deal only with events, or signal processing languages that tend to deal only with signals and synthesis, it handles both in a single integrated system. It is also flexible and easy to use because it is based on an interactive Lisp interpreter. You can design instruments by combining functions (much as you would using the orchestra languages of Music V, cmusic, or Csound). You can call upon these instruments and generate a sound just by typing a simple expression. You can combine simple expressions into complex ones to create a whole composition. It runs under any Unix environment, MacOS, Windows 95, and Windows NT, and it produces sound files as output (or direct audio output under Windows).
EasyPMP is a program used to create and maintain the music database on a variety of portable music players. This allows tracks to be browsed by artist, album, genre, etc., rather than by directory structure. The following devices are supported: iRiver H100 series; iRiver H300 series; iRiver H10 UMS; iRiver H10 MTP (with emergency connect mode); iRiver H10Jr. UMS; iRiver U10 UMS; MEDION MDJuke220 and MDJuke 440; and Samsung YH-820, YH-920, and YH-925. It is developed as part of a project called PMPlib, which aims to develop a library that can be used by desktop media players and other programs, in order to support these devices.
