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.
audioloader is a minimalist music library browser that enables the browsing of a local music collection in any Web browser. It supports album/directory oriented audio/music listening. Album playlists are generated dynamically, and can either be queued into Audacious through a script distributed with the application or downloaded and opened with any music player. It is self-contained with no dependency on any external application but the Web browser, and supports cover art display, history, random album selection, and sub-collections. It has limited mobile support, as well.
