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.

wavegain ~ Replaygain For Wave Files


WaveGain is an application of the ReplayGain algorithms to standard PCM wave files. Calculated gain adjustments are applied directly to the audio data, instead of just writing metadata as traditionally done for other formats like MP3, FLAC and Ogg Vorbis. The replaygain values can also be added as metadata in a custom RIFF chunk named ‘gain’. This could theoretically allow WAV files to have same lossless functionality as other formats where audio data is not altered. But since no current players are aware of this “standard”, the metadata is used only by WaveGain for the “–undo-gain” feature, which is lossy.

DR14 T.meter ~ Linux Dynamic Range Meter


DR14 T.meter is a free and open source command line tool for computing the Dynamic Range of your music according to the procedure used in the off-line meter released by the Pleasurize Music Foundation.

This tool is a very useful measure of how loud your music is, and for understanding that a good quality album always has a wide dynamic range, and it’s also useful for understanding the effects of the so called ‘loudness war’.

Dr14 t.meter is released under the terms of the GNU GPLv3 license and is intended for the Linux users who can not use the Windows application released by the Pleasurize Music Foundation, or the plugin for Foobar2000.

I’ve largely tested this application and it has always returned results identical to those of the official off-line meter.

Feature:
  • Compute the DR dynamic range of the audio file
