AKVIS Magnifier upscales digital images to higher resolutions with advanced enlargement algorithms, preserving edge to edge image sharpness while improving image appearance by removing unwanted noise and compression artifacts. The sophisticated algorithms keep edges smooth, sharp, and clearly defined at the same time. AKVIS Magnifier does not require an external photo editor to operate. The resizing is easily configurable and allows fine-tuning of parameters such as image and edge sharpness.
AKVIS Noise Buster is a image editor plug-in for noise suppression on digital and scanned images. AKVIS Noise Buster reduces both luminance and chroma (color) noise on digital images without spoiling other aspects of the photo. The plug-in's window shows "before" and "after" images for instant preview and easy tweaking of the parameters. Separate setting areas for luminance and chroma noise allow you to deal with each kind of noise in the most efficient way. It is compatible with Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel (Jasc) Paint Shop pro, etc.
AKVIS SmartMask plug-in is an efficient selection tool. There are two pencils: blue and red. You draw a line with the blue pencil inside the object you want to select, and with the red pencil some lines outside the object to define the areas that should be cut out. The plugin offers three modes: Sharp, Soft, and Complex.
ALSA MIDI Kommander is a DCOP interface exposing many ALSA Sequencer features for shell scripts, Kommander scripts, or KDE programs requiring MIDI sequencer services. A few utilities are included, which can be used both as programming examples and as real work tools. The main program, "kaseq" is a single executable used as a DCOP service program. It runs as a daemon, allowing only a single running instance, and provides a system tray icon to give visual feedback for MIDI activity and a way to control the program's execution.
The Advanced Linux Sound Architecture is composed of several parts. The first is a fully modularized sound driver which supports module autoloading, devfs, isapnp autoconfiguration, and gives complete access to analog audio, digital audio, control, mixer, synthesizer, DSP, MIDI, and timer components of audio hardware. It also includes a fully-featured kernel-level sequencer, a full compatibility layer for OSS/Free applications, an object-oriented C library which covers and enhances the ALSA kernel driver functionality for applications (client/server, plugins, PCM sharing/multiplexing, PCM metering, etc.), an interactive configuration program for the driver, and some simple utilities for basic management.
