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.

Ultimate Mono2Stereo ~ Better Mono To Stereo


What sets this frontend for ffmpeg apart from other stereo simulators is it creates an illusion of actual stereo separation. More importantly, it produces none of the weird phasing, and/or time delay artifacts. And very little, if any of the tone discoloration, when those others aren’t meticulously set up just right. All this is accomplished by using the ffmpeg crossover audio filter to split the sound into 8 frequency bands. The split points are based on center frequencies of a typical 1/3 octave equalizer. Those 8 bands are then panned in varying degrees to left and right. The varying width of each band is set to achieve the best balance between the left and right channels.

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.

qaac ~ AAC / ALAC Encoder


qaac is a command line AAC / ALAC encoder frontend based on Apple encoder, strongly influenced by tmkk.pv.land.to/qtaacenc/.

qaac requires Apple Application Support that is included in iTunes or QuickTime. If you are using 64 bit Windows, recent 64 bit iTunes (ver 12.1 or later) is recommended. 64 bit installer for iTunes (iTunes6464Setup.exe) includes both of 32 bit and 64 bit Apple Application Support, therefore you can run both of qaac.exe and qaac64.exe with its installation.

Features:
  • AAC-LC, AAC-HE, ALAC encoding are supported. m4a container (just a MP4 container with ‘M4A ‘ brand, created by Apple) is used by default, but you can also mux into ADTS.
  • Filenames and tags are treated with Unicode. Very long file names are supported.
  • Support for multichannel / surround.
  • Fine quality control over AAC encoding.
  • Support for hi-resolution / multichannel ALAC.
  • WAV, raw PCM, ALAC, and all LPCM formats supported by CoreAudio AudioFile interface (such as AIFF, CAF, and Sun/AU) are directly available as input. MP3 is also decodable through CoreAudio.
  • Cue sheet input is also available.
  • FLAC, Wavpack, TAK, and other LPCM formats are optionally supported when libFLAC.dll, wavpackdll.dll, tak_deco_lib.dll, and libsndfile-1.dll are installed.
  • Piped input is available for WAV and raw PCM.
  • Piped output (streaming) is supported for ADTS.
  • Automatically fetch tags from AIFF, FLAC, Wavpack, Tak, and ALAC. Major tags are copied to the result. Also, you can manually set tags via command line options.

RocksmithToTab ~ Convert Rocksmith To Guitar Pro


Exports Rocksmith 2014 arrangements to Guitar Pro tabs (.gp5, .gpx). RocksmithToTab parses Rocksmith’s .psarc archives and converts any songs found within to tablature. All the Rocksmith techniques are supported and translated, and you get all of the chord diagrams and fingering hints that Rocksmith shows you. It’s a great way to figure out specific parts of a song, and Guitar Pro’s speed trainer is a very good alternative to the riff repeater. All arrangement types (bass, lead, rhythm) can be exported, either together in a single tab or into separate tabs.

Features:
  • Can export any installed Rocksmith 2014 songs, including on-disc content, dlc, import RS1 songs as well as custom dlcs.
  • Can export tabs to either .gp5 format (Guitar Pro 5/6/Mobile, TuxGuitar) or .gpx format (Guitar Pro 6).
  • All Rocksmith features are supported and exported, including legato techniques, bends, palm and fret-hand mutes and chord diagrams.
  • All available arrangements (lead, rhythm, bass) can be exported, either into the same tab file or into separate files.
  • For the most part, produces readable rhythm notation, although it may occasionally become a bit weird, particularly in fast solos.
