Shairport Sync ~ Unix AirPlay Player


Shairport Sync is an AirPlay audio player – it plays audio streamed from iTunes, iOS, Apple TV and macOS devices and AirPlay sources such as Quicktime Player and ForkedDaapd, among others.

Audio played by a Shairport Sync-powered device stays synchronised with the source and hence with similar devices playing the same source. In this way, synchronised multi-room audio is possible for players that support it, such as iTunes and the macOS Music app.

Shairport Sync runs on Linux, FreeBSD and OpenBSD. It does not support AirPlay video or photo streaming.

Sayonara ~ Lightweight Linux Player


Sayonara is a small, clear and fast audio player for Linux written in C++, supported by the Qt framework. It uses GStreamer as audio backend. Sayonara is open source and uses the GPLv3 license. One of Sayonara’s goals is intuitive and easy usability. Currently, it is only available for Linux and BSD. Although Sayonara can be considered as a lightweight player, it has a lot of features in order to organize even big music collections. In contrast to the heavyweight players, the main focus of Sayonara is performance, low CPU usage and low memory consumption. Sayonara is a great alternative to players like Rhythmbox, Clementine or Amarok. Those who miss Winamp for Linux should give Sayonara a try.

Managing your library: You can manage your library by artists, albums, genres or file paths. Sayonara contains a sophisticated tag editor helping you to keep your collection clean. You can hold multiple playlists simultaneously, save/rename/delete or export them to common playlist file formats. With the multi library feature you can manage multiple directories as stand-alone libraries and copy and move tracks from one to another. There are even more complex library plugins like Soundcloud or SomaFM support.

Directory view: Some people don’t have a perfect tagged library and are more interested in the directory structure of their libraries. Sayonara provides various features to access and edit your music in the directory view.

Plugins: In addition, there are some useful plugins helping to enhance your comfort while listening. Some interesting plugins are the equalizer, a speed/pitch control, a crossfader, bookmarks for tracks and a broadcasting function.

Webstreams and Podcasts: You can record all tracks streamed from the internet. Your saved tracks automatically tagged, of course. When listening to ordinary webstreams, a history of all played tracks can be displayed. If webstreams or podcasts contain some chapter information, Sayonara also uses this information in order to provide fast jumping within these tracks.

Foobar2000 ~ Classic User Interface


The Default User Interface from early foobar2000 versions is back! This component serves no particular useful purpose; it is provided for the nostalgia value only. It is missing various functionality considered to be essential in current foobar2000 series, such as persistently visible volume control. There are no plans to add any new functionality into the Classic User Interface.

Warning: product may contain Finnish profanity.

Changes since the original version:

  • Modified to run side by side with the current Default UI. Please do not remove the Default UI DLL.
  • Fixed the infamous seekbar repaint bug on Windows themes other than “classic”.
  • Replaced popup volume slider with the latest Default UI code.
  • Restored original “Preferences: Title Formatting” page from old foobar2000 versions
  • Various cosmetic changes.

Ecasound ~ Opensource Unix DAW


Ecasound is a software package designed for multitrack audio processing. It can be used for simple tasks like audio playback, recording and format conversions, as well as for multitrack effect processing, mixing, recording and signal recycling. Ecasound supports a wide range of audio inputs, outputs and effect algorithms. Effects and audio objects can be combined in various ways, and their parameters can be controlled by operator objects like oscillators and MIDI-CCs. A versatile console mode user-interface is included in the package.

The primary platform for running Ecasound is GNU/Linux. Ecasound can also be run on many UNIX-derived systems such as FreeBSD, Mac OS X and Solaris. Limited support for Windows is available through Cygwin.

Matchering ~ Master Via Modeling


Matchering 2.0 is a novel Containerized Web Application and Python Library for audio matching and mastering. It follows a simple idea – you take TWO audio files and feed them into Matchering:

  • TARGET (the track you want to master, you want it to sound like the reference)
  • REFERENCE (another track, like some kind of “wet” popular song, you want your target to sound like it)

Our algorithm matches both of these tracks and provides you the mastered TARGET track with the same RMS, FR, peak amplitude and stereo width as the REFERENCE track has.
