ScreenBullet is a tool that allows you to create your own TV shows (non-interactive and interactive) to be later presented on displays and kiosks in public and private environments, such as retail stores and corporate buildings. It is a digital signage solution that allows you to create and distribute information, advertising campaigns, and messages in a very attractive form to a large number of devices. It was created from the ground up with a main goal of delivering attractive content to a large audience.
Giada is a minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs and live performers. Just pick your sample, drop it in any channel, and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler, or effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.
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.
Dictator is a small application for writing transcriptions from recorded dictations. It is a simplified notepad application combined with a simple audio player. The unique feature is the ability to skip backward and forward in an audio recording with a simple keystroke while typing text.
The Dmapd project provides a GObject-based implementation of DMAP sharing. Dmapd features support for both DAAP (iTunes) and DPAP (iPhoto), support for realtime transcoding of media formats not natively supported by clients, and support for many metadata formats, such as those associated with Ogg Vorbis and MP3 (e.g., ID3). It has been used on OpenWrt Linux-based systems with as little as 32MB of memory to serve music, video, and photograph libraries containing thousands of files.
AdlMIDI is a command line program that plays MIDI files using software OPL3 emulation (FM synthesis). It has a console UI. It features a built-in selection of 50 patch sets, most of which are General MIDI compatible, but some of which are customized for playing original background music soundtracks of select PC games.
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.
Lyra is a front-end to the Music Player Daemon (MPD). Based loosely on the Creative Media Source software, it has the aim of supporting large collections of albums and artists. Other interesting features are the implementation of a local cache of the music library using an SQLite database, increased speed, and flexibility. In addition, Lyra supports integration with the Last.fm service, which includes "Scrobbling" and album cover art.
