Moosic ~ Unix Audio Player


Moosic is a music player for Unix systems. It focuses on convenient and powerful playlist management. It consists of a server process that maintains a queue of songs to be played and one or more client programs which sends commands to the server. The server continually runs through its song queue, popping songs off the top of the list and playing each with an external program. The client is a simple command-line utility which allows you to easily perform powerful operations upon the server’s queue, including the addition of whole directory trees, automatic shuffling, and song removal according to regular expressions. The server comes configured to play MP3, Ogg, MIDI, MOD, and WAV files, but can be configured to also play any other file format you want.

MergeMP3 ~ Combine mp3s For Free


It is often necessary to merge multiple sound files into one recording. This need may arise for various reasons: merge ripped CD tracks into one, combine multiple chapters of an audiobook, etc. There are many great programs to achieve this, but very few of them are actually free. I’ve discovered that while all of these programs perform the task well, they also contain lots of other features, making them too complicated for the tasks. This is why when I needed the plain vanilla merging utility, I could not find one that was free – and decided to write one myself. The added benefit of writing one myself, of course, is that it has exactly the features I need – and none that I don’t. When it was done – I decided to give it away for free – to alleviate some of the pains I had.

Features:

  • Merge as many files as you like – no limitations by size, length, or number.
  • Sort files to be merged by filename (with or without directory), date/time or size.
  • Optionally write ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags into the merged MP3 file.
  • Optionally write VBR frame into the merged file – useful when merging files with different bitrates.
  • View detailed information about MP3 files to be merged, including MPEG header information and ID3v1 and ID3v2 information.
  • Choose to use ID3 tag from any of the files to be merged to write into the target file.
  • Display an image embedded into the MP3 files.
  • Play MP3 files from the list to be merged.
  • No complicated installation – simply unzip the program and run from any directory.
  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Very fast merge speed.
  • It’s absolutely FREE!

CUE Corrector ~ Cue Sheet Editor


CUE Corrector is a multifunctional program for working with index cards, which has a wide range of possibilities for reading, creating and editing them. The program is capable of performing many operations that arise during the use of index cards, from a simple replacement of an audio file extension in it to a complete change of its content, without making any changes to the index markup.

The program also has a large number of tools that allow you to edit the index maps in a set of associated files and folders, thus treating it as part of the “index map, extract report, audio files and covers” complex. The algorithms implemented for this make it possible to extremely simplify and automate many operations to bring the complex to the desired user form, convenient for storing and organizing – creating collections.

Chrome Music Lab ~ Interactive Music Online


What is Chrome Music Lab?

Chrome Music Lab is a website that makes learning music more accessible through fun, hands-on experiments.

What can it be used for?

Many teachers have been using Chrome Music Lab as a tool in their classrooms to explore music and its connections to sciencemathart, and more. They’ve been combining it with dance and live instruments. Here’s a collection of some uses we’ve found on Twitter.

Can I use it to make my own songs?

Yes. Check out the Song Maker experiment, which lets you make and share your own songs.

Do I need to make an account?

Nope. Just open any experiment and start playing.

How were these built?

All our experiments are all built with freely accessible web technology such as Web Audio APIWebMIDITone.js, and more. These tools make it easier for coders to build new interactive music experiences. You can get the open-source code to lots of these experiments here on Github.

What devices do these work on?

You can play with these experiments across devices – phones, tablets, laptops – just by opening the site on a web browser such as Chrome.

TAK ~ Tom’s Lossless Audio Kompressor


TAK stands for (T)om’s lossless (A)audio (k)ompressor. Besides, it’s a throwback to a (not very philanthropic) character from Stephen King’s “Regulators”. Early semi-public evaluation versions operated under the working title YALAC .

Characteristics:
  • High compression . The strongest mode is on a par with Monkey’s Audio High and OptimFrog’s Normal; for specific files such as classical music or voice recordings, it often outperforms both. This classification is based on the evaluation of hundreds of files of various styles; it definitely does not apply to every single file.
  • High compression speed . I am currently not aware of any other compressor that works faster than TAK’s Turbo or Fast mode and achieves similar compression rates.
  • Multi-core compressor . The compressor optionally generates up to four threads in order to take advantage of multi-core cpus.
  • Very high decompression speed . It is at the level of FLAC and therefore significantly higher than most symmetrical compressors.
  • Support for every popular audio format (not yet fully implemented).
  • Streaming support . An info frame, which contains all the information required for decoding, is inserted into the compressed audio data every 2 seconds.
  • Fault tolerance . A single bit error never damages the audio data for more than a maximum of 250 ms, since it is stored in completely independent frames of a maximum of this duration. The decoder processes even extremely damaged files, optionally replacing or removing the affected data with silence.
  • Error detection . Every single frame is protected by a 24-bit checksum (CRC).
  • MD5 checksums for quick identification of audio material (e.g. for searching for duplicates).
  • Fast, sample-accurate access to any playback position . The file header contains a look-up table with index positions every second. Even without this table, efficient random access is possible; for this purpose, the synchronization codes of the frame headers and / or the offset values ​​optionally recorded in the frame header, which refer to the beginning of the previous and next frame, can be used.
  • Metadata . A flexible and expandable structure allows the recording of non-audio data such as images or cuesheets.
  • Playback plugins for Winamp and Foobar are currently available.
  • An SDK provides other developers with decoding functions for integration into their applications. An extension to include coding functions is planned.

HyBrit Head ~ Hybrid Amp Plugin


HyBrit Head is an hybrid amp model based on two famous British gears.

The PLS channel is actually an hybrid of the two (tweaked) channels (Normal and Treble) of the real thing. Both channels are actually processed and the mix of the two signals can be adjusted through the PLS MIX knob. The other channel, MCJ, is also a tweaked version of the real thing. So, this amp simulator doesn’t represent anything specifically but it does have the character of the British amp.
