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)

Metatogger ~ Windows Audio Tag Management


Metatogger is a tag editor for audio files. These tags or metadata are helping to exploit with more efficiency audio files data. Most of the files are not coming along with metadata, while others are having wrong, useless or inconsistent data. Sometimes, even file name doesn’t reflect the true content of the file. It is then difficult to identify the piece without playing it. This is where Metatogger makes it great.

Metatogger allows correcting or completing audio files tags. It comes with features that allow:

  • manual tags editing or with C# scripts;
  • retrieve tags from file name or paths;
  • rename files with tags content;
  • look after duplicate audio files;
  • organize files according to tags (copy, move, symbolic link);
  • retrieve tags in a local database of 1.5 million public records;
  • retrieve covers and lyrics from Internet;
  • identify files using acoustic fingerprinting technology;
  • easily clean unwanted tags.
  • Metatogger works with Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, M4A (AAC and ALAC) and WMA.

LASTAR ~ Batch File Splitting & Normalization


LASTAR is a batch (non-interactive) audio processor for loudness adjustment and file splitting of a batch of audio recordings, using an audio transparent maximizer.

At the opposite of usual available software, loudness normalization is done on signal power, which leads to a louder and more homogeneous result than the usual “peak” normalization, in particular on live recordings.

Its purpose is:

  • to split, equalize and normalize digitized analog tapes or vinyl
  • to split, equalize and normalize live recordings from microphones (ex ZOOM H2 recordings)
  • fast and homogeneous normalization of a group of files (compilation for instance)
  • loudness and dynamic reduction for listening in a noisy environment (car…)
  • and so on…

This software aims to be very fast and easy to use : the most efficient computing techniques have been implemented, and there are very few parameters to set (most of them are automatically adjusted by analyzing the file).

It embeds :

  • an automatic RMS normalizer,
  • an Automatic Gain Controller (compressor)
  • a 10 bands automatic equalizer
  • a 3 bands semi-parametric equalizer
  • a file splitter
  • a noise gate
  • preset management
  • a preview function.
