Common Music ~ Algorithmic Music Composition


Common Music (CM) is a real-time music composition system implemented in JUCE/C++ and Scheme. It generates musical output via MIDI, OSC, CLM, FOMUS and CSOUND. Its user application is called GRACE (Graphical Real-time Algorithmic Composition Environment)

Features:

  • Algorithmic music composition environment
  • Runs on Mac, Windows and Linux
  • Real time scheduling of musical algorithms
  • Two coding languages for designing algorithms: S7 Scheme and SAL (an easy-to-learn alternate)
  • MIDI input/output
  • CLM/Sndlib audio system built in (Scottstaedt)
  • CCRMA digital audio instrument definitions built in (Scottstaedt)
  • Open Sound Control input/output
  • Metronomes and running algorithm redefinition for live coding
  • Data visualization
  • Music pattern definitions
  • Fomus system built in for computing music notations (Psenicka)

Softsqueeze ~ Software Squeezebox


Softsqueeze is a music player for your PC that works with the SqueezeCenter software. It complements the Boom, Duet, Transporter, Squeezebox and Slimp3 hardware music players developed by Slim Devices.

Supports synchronization with hardware players and remote streaming over the Internet using ssh tunneling.

Developed in Java, allowing this useful application to work with Windows PCs, OS X and Unix systems.

Emulates most of the digital music players and uses the TCP based slim protocol, allowing use across the Internet and through firewalls/NAT routers.

orDrumbox ~ Cross-platform Drum Machine


The orDrumbox is free drum machine software, designed to be as creative as possible with some unusual features: auto-composition, polyrhythms, custom arpeggiator, automatic sounds/track matching, custom soft synths, lo fi rendering and more … Ideal for experimentation and fast results.

  • This software can automatically compose bass lines, melodic patterns and complete songs.
  • It comes with a rhythms database and sounds database including musical items which can be fully edited.
  • … and a fully customizable soft synth section adds many synthetics sounds as presets to the sounds library.

BRP-PACU ~ Acoustic Analysis Tool


A cross platform dual channel FFT based Acoustic Analysis Tool to help engineers analyze live professional sound systems using the transfer function. One feature is the ability to capture four sample plots, average them, and invert to aid in final EQ.

  • Four capture buffers, with auto-save (in case of crash) and save-as ability
  • Averages buffers to a separate buffer and flips it for analysis
  • Automatic delay calculation
  • Impulse response capturing
  • Pink Noise generation tool to eliminate need for an external Pink Noise source
  • Uses JACK to route and manage audio paths

mlYou ~ Music Library Utilities Suite


This is a collection of tools to help you manage, maintain, and optimize your own music library for a better experience.

It makes growing and maintaining a music collection of any size easier by automating necessary (but tedious) processes.

The tools currently aim to assist with music organizing and tagging, and playlist management.

Cross-Platform Compatible – Works and tested under Linux (Ubuntu) and Windows. Mac untested but expected to work similar to linux.
