FreqTweak ~ Spectral Manipulation & Display


FreqTweak is a tool for FFT-based realtime audio spectral manipulation and display. It provides several algorithms for processing audio data in the frequency domain and a highly interactive GUI to manipulate the associated filters for each. It also provides high-resolution spectral displays in the form of scrolling-raster spectrograms and energy vs frequency plots displaying both pre- and post-processed spectra.

It is an extremely addictive audio toy, but I hope it has value for serious audio work too (sound design, etc). The spectrum analysis is pretty useful in its own right.

Transport ~ Transport Info Display


A handy little tool which provides all the information about measure, time, sample count etc that most hosts usually hide somewhere in a tiny little part of the screen. Transport is resizable and you can pick your own colours. Ideally, you’d drag it onto an external monitor in your 1000 square feet wooden studio and make it fullscreen so that your recording artists always stay oriented, but it works in smaller settings as well ;-). Made upon request by a DDMF user, we thought this gem is too good to not make it available for everybody. Transport is available as a 32 and 64 bit plugin in VST, RTAS, AAX (Win + Mac) and AU (Mac) format. MacOSX 10.6 is required.

OSD Lyrics ~ Linux On Screen Lyrics

OSD Lyrics can download lyrics from the network automatically.

FFmpeg ~ Open Source Audio Visual Toolset


A complete, cross-platform solution to record, convert and stream audio and video. FFmpeg is the leading multimedia framework, able to decodeencodetranscodemuxdemuxstreamfilter and play pretty much anything that humans and machines have created. It supports the most obscure ancient formats up to the cutting edge. No matter if they were designed by some standards committee, the community or a corporation. It is also highly portable: FFmpeg compiles, runs, and passes our testing infrastructure FATE across Linux, Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows, the BSDs, Solaris, etc. under a wide variety of build environments, machine architectures, and configurations.

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.

projectM ~ Modern Milkdrop Visualizations
