Aurion Music Manager (AMM) has been designed to be a very user-friendly interface for using mpg123, cdrecord, mkisofs, lame, and other very powerful command-line music tools. It uses the SDL for its graphics, and the interface can use the TV output capability featured by several video cards. AMM also includes a WAV file player, called pwav123.
The Java Media Framework (JMF) is an API for incorporating audio, video, and other time-based media into Java applications and applets. It is an optional package that extends the multimedia capabilities on the Java2 platform. The Blackdown JMF is a Performace Pack which includes native code in order to provide faster processing and tighter integration with Linux than the all-Java version.
The FAAC project includes the AAC encoder FAAC and decoder FAAD2. It supports several MPEG-4 object types (LC, Main, LTP, HE AAC, PS) and file formats (ADTS AAC, raw AAC, MP4), multichannel and gapless en/decoding as well as MP4 metadata tags. The codecs are compatible with standard-compliant audio applications using one or more of these profiles.
Flac2All is a multi-threaded script that will convert your collection of FLAC files into either Ogg Vorbis, MP3 (with the Lame encoder), or FLAC, complete with any tags and identical file/folder structure. The script has been stable for about a year now, and it has been known to saturate 8-core machines with parallel conversions. It is useful for people with with large FLAC collections who also want a lossy version for portable media players. If wanted, the script can perform updates by skipping already converted files. It has only been tested on Linux, but it should work without alteration on the other Unix systems with bash and the required dependencies.
The GlobeCom Jukebox is a music jukebox with integrated CDDB-aware ripping and groupware functionality.

MIDI to MP3 Converter for Mac is a tool that converts MIDI files to MP3 or WAV. It uses an intelligent conversion technique, allowing you to convert a 5 minute MIDI file in just a few seconds. It also produces high quality sound that may significantly surpass capabilities of your built-in sound card. MIDI to MP3 Converter uses SoundFonts to perform the converion, which greatly increases flexibility. You can choose an appropriate SoundFont for every MIDI file, or even supply each instrument of your composition with an individual SoundFont (piano, guitar, trumpet etc.). MIDI to MP3 Converter includes an editor for controlling ID3 tag information in the output files. The program also offers a number of sound effects. It is possible to set tempo, reverb, and chorus effects.
MP3 STATION is a LIRC-aware, plain-text tool set for managing MP3 playback in a car or home with as little user interaction as possible. It can restart the last playlist at the last played track/frame, transparently load directories, transparently recompile playlists, and keep a repository of all the playlists. It also has two simple clients for communicating with cm3s (a curses console client and a very basic one on a parallel port). All programs run under a non-privileged user account.
