a2b is an abstract train game where you guide trains to their destination without letting them collide with each other. Each game is played on a set of tracks on which trains run at regular intervals. You pick a train and accelerate, brake, or stop as necessary to safely guide it to its destination. Since trains are continously being launched, more than 1 train will want to use the same section of a track, potentially leading to a collision. You must resolve this by making a train wait while you rush another train. As a last resort, you can send a train back to its base.
din is a software musical instrument and audio synthesizer. Bezier curves are used to draw and sculpt waveforms, create gating and modulation (FM and AM) patterns, and create delay feedback and volume patterns. You can also create an unlimited number of drones and sculpt their waveforms. It uses JACK to output audio, and supports MIDI, OSC and IRC bot for input. din can be extended and customized with Tcl scripts.
jack-tuner is a musical instrument tuner that uses the JACK audio connection kit. It is a command line program, and it accepts many commands. The important ones are the tone and volume commands, which can produce any audible tone from 20hz to 20khz at a volume from 0 (silence) to 1 (loudest). It can also produce notes (for example, "tone D#" produces the note D#) over several octaves (for example, "tone C octave -1" produces the note C an octave below middle-C). It can also transpose notes (for example, "tone C > 5" produces G). There are commands to do microtonal tuning too. With multiple jack-tuner instances, you can tune chords. jack-tuner does not measure the note that an instrument is playing; instead you play the desired note with jack-tuner and tune your instrument by ear.
In p, a bunch of particles interact with each other according to this simple rule: every particle moves towards, away, or watches other particles. When the program starts, each particle chooses a random color, position, and the particles with which it will interact. As the program runs, some particles join together to form a train and journey together thereafter. Some orbit each other. Some collapse into each other. Some form swarms that split and join. One cannot predict when or where or how many of these behaviors will emerge, but they usually do.
