Algoscore is a graphical environment for algorithmic composition, where music is constructed directly in an interactive graphical score. The result is output to MIDI and CSound. Graphical objects are placed in a timeline and connected together. Some objects are fully dependent on user data, while some are generative and reacts on input from other objects. It is highly customizable and extensible with the Nasal scripting language. It has a non-realtime perspective where the composer can relate freely to time and construct the composition outside of time. This makes AlgoScore more like a traditional sequencer in this regard, but a graphical algorithmic sequencer with powerful and flexible scripting capabilities.
Audacity is a cross-platform multitrack audio editor. It allows you to record sounds directly or to import Ogg, WAV, AIFF, AU, IRCAM, or MP3 files. It features a few simple effects, all of the editing features you should need, and unlimited undo. The audio I/O uses PortAudio, which fully supports OSS, Mac OS X CoreAudio, and Windows WMME, and can be compiled with support for ALSA and Jack.
AudioSlicer is a Cocoa GUI application that finds all silences in an audio file and allows you to split it into several smaller audio files and to name/tag them properly. While most other tools split automatically according to certain criteria, AudioSlicer shows you all silences within a certain range of duration. You can then listen and decide whether you want to split there. The splitting is done without loss; there is no decoding and re-encoding of audio data.
Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, recording, and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. It supports a wide range of audio inputs, outputs, and effect algorithms. Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console-mode user interface is included in the package.
Jackbeat is a multi-platform audio sequencer for musicians and sound artists. Featuring a drum machine interface with animations for easy and playful editing, it is built for both composition and live setups with high interactivity needs. It is extremely easy to use yet powerful via connecting with other applications and plugins using JACK and OSC. Jackbeat loads and saves .jab files, Jackbeat's xml+tar open file format, and supports CoreAudio, ASIO, ALSA, PulseAudio, and JACK.
Jaikoz is a powerful tag editor that allows you to organize, edit, and correct thousands of audio tags with ease. Jaikoz has powerful automation features. Jaikoz uses MusicBrainz and MusicIP, online databases of over 5 million songs, which can match your songs automtically based on the actual music as well as the metadata. Jaikoz uses a convenient spreadsheet view to allow you to edit information very quickly and provides many autoformatting tasks which do most of the work for you.
Kid3 tagger can edit the ID3v1 tags and all ID3v2 frames in MP3 files and the tags in Ogg/Vorbis and FLAC files in an efficient way. It is easy to convert between ID3v1 and ID3v2, set the tags of multiple files to the same values and generate the tags from the file name or vice versa. Import is possible from freedb.org, MusicBrainz, and other sources of track data.
LAoE is a graphical audiosample-editor, based on multi-layers, floating-point samples, volume-masks, variable selection-intensity, and many plugins suitable to manipulate sound, such as filtering, retouching, resampling, graphical spectrogram editing by brushes and rectangles, sample-curve editing by freehand-pen and spline and other interpolation curves, effects like reverb, echo, compress, expand, pitch-shift, time-stretch, and much more.
