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.

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.

SAR ~ Synchronous Audio Router


Synchronous Audio Router lets you route audio from any Windows application through a DAW (digital audio workstation) application, giving you an immense amount of control over your system’s audio. You can apply sophisticated effects, routing and switching, and combine the audio streams from each individual application any way you want, producing any number of output mixes.

If your applications of choice doesn’t let you select an audio device, SAR has you covered: you can define per-application routing rules which will override the Windows default audio device settings. You can even use pattern matching to define rules for groups of applications.

It’s also fast. SAR operates inline with your existing ASIO driver, adding no additional buffer latency to your DAW, and uses WaveRT for direct low latency transport of audio between applications. This is in contrast to many other “virtual audio cable” type drivers which often require buffer sizes as large as 50-100ms to work reliably.
