unflac ~ Command Line FLAC Splitter


A command line tool for fast frame accurate audio image + cue sheet splitting.

This project is started mostly out of frustration over supporting split2flac with all the external dependencies and their quirks.

ARITA ~ Extraordinary Linux Audio Player


Core ideas behind this project:

* Your filesystem should remain tidy and clean – let’s pack tracks into uncompressed archives a.k.a. “libraries” (this was inspired by a common practice of video game developers to store all game resources in one or several packages). Less files – less clutter.

* Tags suck (especially ID3) – let’s utilize XML/YAML/JSON to describe entire albums.

* Storing cover image in every track is a waste of space – let’s have one TIFF/PNG/FLIF file per library.

* Being able to verify integrity of files in your music collection is a good feature, so let’s use hash lists (MD5, SHA1 etc.) for libraries.

* Rather than having to dig through lots of directories in order to select what you want to listen at the very particular moment it is much more convenient to have a centralized per-user database with a quick access to any track/album in your precious collection.

Adcd ~ Unix CLI CD Player


Adcd is a CD player for GNU/Linux with a ncurses (text mode) interface.

Adcd can play all the tracks from a disc in order (linear mode), or in the order specified by the user (playlist mode), and includes all the functions expected in a stand-alone cd player, including random play and loop mode.

Adcd also features a non-interactive mode for those who want to play their CDs while using the console for something else.

Most probably the CD drive needs to be connected to the audio card through an analog audio cable for adcd to be able to play the CD. You may also need a mixer program like rexima or aumix to activate the audio card.

meterec ~ Console Multitrack Recorder


meterec works as a basic multitrack tape recorder. The aim of this software is to minimise the interactions of the users with the computer and allow them to focus on their instrumental performances. For this reason meterec’s features are minimal. If you screw one take, start it over again! Rather than learning how to use a specific software to correct what you screw up, meterec forces you to learn and master your instrument. The good news is that previous takes are kept in history and if in the end, the first one was the best you could play, you can choose it in your final mix.

mktoc ~ Generate cdrdao TOC Files


Mktoc simplifies the steps needed to create audio CD TOC files for the cdrdao CD burning program. For users familiar with EAC or CdrWin, TOC files are synonymous with CUE sheets. The primary goal of mktoc is to create TOC files using a previously generated CUE sheet.

Features:

  • Create a TOC file from a list of WAV files.
  • Convert an ExactAudioCopy (EAC) CUE file to the TOC format that is usable by cdrdao.
  • Multi-session aware CUE parsing, necessary for making CDDB and AccurateRip matchable discs.
  • Non-compliant CUE sheet support.
  • Support for various pregap methods.
  • Can create offset corrected WAV files for true ‘bit-for-bit’ accurate copies.
  • Fuzzy file name logic can correct common file name spelling variations.
  • Workaround known TOC file parsing bugs in cdrdao.

Cdrdao ~ Disk-At-Once Recording


Cdrdao records audio or data CD-Rs in disk-at-once (DAO) mode based on a textual description of the CD contents.

Advantages of Disk-At-Once (DAO) Recording:

Recording in disk-at-once mode writes the complete disc, i.e. lead-in, one or more tracks and lead-out, in a single step. The commonly used track-at-once (TAO) mode writes each track independently which requires link blocks between two tracks. Older CD-recorder models forced a two second pause (pre-gap) between two tracks whereas newer models allow adjusting of the pause length in TAO mode reducing the number of link blocks to a minimal amount. However, with TAO it is generally not possible to define the data that is written in pre-gaps. But exactly this feature makes audio CD recording interesting, e.g. by creating hidden bonus tracks or track intros in pre-gaps like it is common habit on commercial CDs. Finally, DAO recording is the only way to write data to the unused R-W sub-channels for e.g.  CD-G or CD-TEXT.

Features:

  • Full control over length and contents of pre-gaps (pause areas between tracks). Pre-gaps may be completely omitted, e.g. for dividing live recordings into tracks.
  • Control over sub-channel data like:
    • catalog number
    • copy, pre-emphasis, 2-/4-channel flags
    • ISRC code
    • index marks
  • Support for exact audio, data and mixed mode CD copying.
  • Support for R-W sub-channel writing.
  • Tracks may be composed of different audio files supporting non destructive cut.
  • Accepts WAVE and raw audio files.
  • CD-TEXT reading and writing with drives that support it.
  • CDDB access to automatically create CD-TEXT data.
  • Support for on-the-fly copying.
