Volume Limiter ~ Lock MS Windows Volume Control


Volume Limiter is a small application that allows you to set a maximum volume limit on your windows PC. This is designed to protect children from turning the volume up to a level that would damage their hearing.

The application can be password protected to prevent children from changing your defined limit. The application runs in the background and minimizes to the system tray. Volume settings, the lock or unlocked status, and password information are stored in the windows registry. If the application is set to start up upon login (by placing it in the startup group) it will load the previous settings.

This application is compatible with Windows Vista, 7 and 8 and will run on 32 bit or 64 bit systems.

Features:
  • Can be password protected
  • Volume level and lock status auto-saved to registry
  • Minimizes to system tray rather than task bar
  • Lightweight (Uses 2MB of system RAM when running)

Deep Audio Visualization ~ Visual Music Perceptions


Audio visualization usually relies on hand-crafted features, like intensity, timbre or pitch. These metrics are defined by humans and are biased towards our cultural representation of sound. In this project, we have trained a Neural Net to generate these features directly from spectrograms, in an unsupervised way. We thus get rid of this bias and hope the resulting visualizations can help us perceive music in different ways.

Tyrell N6 ~ Cross-platform Software Synthesizer


TyrellN6 is a compact, sporty synth. Based on concepts and ideas for a hardware synth: a few modules, novel features, analogue sound and low-cost. TyrellN6 is the software version manifestation of these ideas.

  • Virtual analogue with classic architecture plus extras
  • 2 oscillators, noise, ring modulator
  • 2 LFOs with 8 waveforms, host-syncable
  • Audio source mixer with authentic overdrive and filter feedback
  • Twin filter related to Diva (early model)
  • Analogue-type ADSR envelopes, loopable or LFO-triggered
  • Skinnable UI
  • Over 580 factory presets

FOMUS ~ Music Notation Automation


FOMUS is a open source software application by David Psenicka that automates many musical notation tasks for composers and musicians, facilitating the process of creating professionally notated scores by allowing the user to separate attributes such as times, durations and pitches from the representation of them in conventional music notation. It is especially useful for composers who work with algorithms and computer music software languages / environments such as CM/Grace, Pure Data and Lisp. It can also be used to import data from MIDI files into a graphical notation editor or creating scores from scratch using text files.

Cover Art Archive ~ Online Artwork Library


The Cover Art Archive is a joint project between the Internet Archive and MusicBrainz, whose goal is to make cover art images available to everyone on the Internet in an organised and convenient way.

Images in the archive are curated by the MusicBrainz community and go through a peer review process to ensure that they are correct, free of spam and of the best quality. If you would like to contribute cover art, create a MusicBrainz account and follow the guide. To see what has been added to the archive recently, please see the Cover Art Archive page at the Internet Archive.

MusicBrainz also provides API documentation for retrieving cover art via a release MBID. A C based client library libcoverart is available as well as the Java coverartarchive-api library.
