mp3menu ~ Linux Console Audio Player


mp3menu lets you select and play your music files using iselect and AlsaPlayer. Mainly MP3’s, but this will actually play anything AlsaPlayer and libaudio can handle, so WAV and FLAC are covered, as well as a bunch of ancient formats dating back to the 1980s. Sadly, M4A is not.

Requires:
1. AlsaPlayer
2. Iselect
3. Bash – mp3menu is a bash script. It might work with zsh, dash and other shells, or it might not.

PGGB•IT! Batch Resampling ~ Crippleware Folder Resampler


PGGB•IT! is a Windows application for PGGB batch resampling of album folders using the Windows Explorer library as a queue. The companion FOLDER-DROP! allows folders to be included in the library using Explorer’s drag-drop. Generate resampled tracks (in FLAC, WAV or WV format) for use in a compatible music player. PGGB•IT! has a comprehensive settings panel and visually rich console output. Use the standard PGGB Offline (MATLAB) or use PGGB-RT (Intel IPP/AVX) to accelerate resampling to only a minute per average track. A free license of PGGB-RT has no feature limits at up to 2 Million Taps. A full functionality license gets you up to 1 Billion Taps.

Distorder ~ Audio Distortion Analyser

In simpler words, it’s just a soft to be sure if you’re not completely deaf.

4Front E-Piano ~ Freeware DX-7 Piano Plugin


4Front E-Piano is a small single sound instrument without any settings that reproduces a timbre, which is similar to DX-7 type e-piano. It is available as VSTi for Windows, and as an AudioUnit, VSTi and RTAS for Mac (see enclosed readme file).

This instrument is small on memory and CPU usage and was found useful by many users and software developers as a plug&play e-piano module, which does not require any configuration or adjustment.

Though this goes without saying for professional users, I still had a frequent question on how to use this plugin from people, who are not familiar with this technolog. One should note, that to make use of this software a plugin hosting software is necessary, such as Topten Cantabile software. A MIDI keyboard is also preferred, as it is something almost essential to create a computer music these days.

There is also 4Front R-Piano, which replicates a different type of E-Piano.
