Eisenkraut ~ Multi-channel Audio Editor


The audio file editor, baptised ‘Eisenkraut’, came into existence (as a scaffold) during a project class on audio programming in Java at the SeaM in Weimar. It is distinguished by a number of traits which makes it particularly interesting in the field of computer music: There are no restrictions with regard to the number of channels in a file, and there is an OSC interface via which the functionality can be extended, for example using the SuperCollider language. Possible applications of such extensions are the transfer of marker information or the maintenance of meta data for segmented files, the algorithmic editing (cut/copy/paste) of files, or the addition of your own sound transformations or special decoders (e.g. an MS matrix).

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.

Speedy MIDI ~ Easy MIDI Editor


Speedy MIDI is an editor designed for choirs and singers to quickly generate MIDI files for rehearsal.

Focus is on fast and easy note entry

If the quality of the sheet music is too low for scanning, Speedy MIDI is an interesting alternative to other MIDI or notation editors. Use the mouse piano for input, or an external MIDI keyboard.

Cell raster technique

Note lengths are entered in multiples of the current cell length.
Thus entering dotted notes or ties is not needed any more!
Tuplets are fully supported.

Simultaneous entry in multiple tracks

Speedy MIDI automatically distributes multiple pressed notes to multiple tracks. This helps when entering music with same rhythmic patterns in multiple voices, e.g. chorale music.

Features:

  • unlimited undo/redo
  • part extraction
  • rehearsal markers (verse, chorus etc.)
  • transpose
  • adjustable playback speed
  • swing playback
  • shortcuts for all commands
  • compatible file format: Standard MIDI File (.mid)
