Music Player Daemon (MPD) is a server that allows remote access for playing music in various formats and managing playlists. It makes a great desktop player with frontend options (Qt, GTK, ncurses, Windows, and Web clients are available). It is also appropriate as a console player that is scriptable, and is especially useful if X is restarted frequently. A set of rapid development tools for clients are being developed and include a C library, Python module, PHP class, Perl module, and Java Class. The goals are to be easy to install and use, to have minimal resource requirements, to be stable and flexible, and easy to interface.
XMMS-SID is an XMMS1 plugin which provides support for playing the so-called "SID tunes". It uses the libSIDPlay1 and/or libSIDPlay2 emulator engines, which provide a virtual emulation/simulation of the Commodore 64 computer and its SID sound chip. It features a file info window, support for STIL database, a song length database, and good configurability.
Baudline is a time-frequency browser designed for scientific visualization of the spectral domain. Signal analysis is performed by Fourier, correlation, and raster transforms that create colorful spectrograms with vibrant detail. Conduct test and measurement experiments with the built in function generator, or play back audio files with a multitude of effects and filters. The baudline signal analyzer combines fast digital signal processing, versatile high speed displays, and continuous capture tools for hunting down and studying elusive signal characteristics.
Unix Amiga Delitracker Emulator (UADE) plays most Amiga music file formats by simulating Amiga hardware and software. It plays approximately 200 Amiga music file formats.
