Beast is a powerful music composition and modular synthesis application. It offers multiple input methods like multitrack, piano roll, and pattern editing and supports skins. On the technical side, it has a wide range of abilities like sequencing, unlimited undo/redo history, real-time synthesis with multiprocessor support, full duplex 32-bit audio rendering, precise timing down to sample granularity, on demand loading of partial wave files, on the fly decoding of various sample formats, aliasing free oscillators, and full Scheme scripting support.
bfsync is a file-synchronization tool that allows you to keep a collection of big files synchronized on many machines. It is built around a FuSE filesystem, so repositories can be mounted and the contents can be viewed and modified via the mount point. A collection of commands like commit/push/pull/put/get can be used to control bfsyncs behaviour, and trigger data / history transfers between machines. In addition to synchronizing files between many machines, bfsync can also be used to store backups.
Doxer provides a wiki-based markup language for writing source code documentation and general purpose documents. It generates HTML output and also provides a Drupal input format module. The parser and HTML generator have a strong focus on robustness to support the full range of user sophistication found on general purpose Web sites. An extensive test suite accompanies the development.
foldroid is a mail folder selection tool. For people who use mutt or a similar text mode mail reader, foldroid is a convenient tool to navigate through your mail folders. It shows how many messages are in each folder and how many of them are new. This, combined with a tool like procmail to sort mail messages of mailing lists into separate folders, makes selecting the right folder to read easy. Foldroid works best when you run it in a screen session, because it then starts every instance of mutt in its own screen.
gst123 is a GStreamer-based command line audio player in the style of mpg123 and ogg123. The advantage over these tools is that gst123 can play every file GStreamer can, so mixed music collections with FLAC, Ogg, and MP3 files are no problem. Newer versions of gst123 additionally provide support for playing video files, while the ability to use gst123 without X11 display has been preserved.
Rapicorn is an experimental UI toolkit. It strives to apply modern technologies properly to all aspects of the toolkit implementation. Such technologies include pthreads, XCB, Cairo, compositing, IDL, XML notation, path evaluation, DSLs, unit tests, and SVG. Rapicorn is developed on this base with the aim to significantly improve developer efficiency and user experience.
SpectMorph allows you to analyze samples of musical instruments and to combine them (morphing). It can be used to construct hybrid sounds, e.g. a sound between a trumpet and a flute, or smooth transitions, e.g. a sound that starts as a trumpet and then gradually changes to a flute. Interpolating between two samples of the same instrument (different attack velocity of a piano) could be interesting. The analysis process decomposes samples into a sum of sine waves (corresponding to the partials present in the signal, or the part of the signal perceived as "tone") and additional noise. SpectMorph is thus based on the research on Spectral Modelling Synthesis.
twcbackup is easy-to-configure backup software with a graphical configuration tool. It supports multiple backup methods. Usually, the bfsync method is used, which maintains a backup pool of SHA1-hashed files which allows file-level duplication. Automatic deletion of old backups, backup of local data or remote machines via ssh/rsync (Linux machines) or smb/rsync (Windows machines), and replication of the backup repository are supported.
