This is the community version of Element, a modular AU / LV2 / VST / VST3 audio plugin host. Create powerful effects, racks and instruments by connecting nodes to one another. Integrates with your existing hardware via standard protocols such as MIDI.
Synthesizer plugin for ADLMIDI and OPNMIDI (VST/LV2). This software package provides FM synthesizer plugins, based on OPL3 and OPN2 sound chip emulations.
The emulations and the drivers are provided by libADLMIDI and libOPNMIDI.
control of multiple YMF262/YM2612 emulated chips
high fidelity emulation, with choice of compromise level (good fidelity / fast, excellent fidelity / slow)
synthesis of melodic and percussive instruments
bundled collection of instruments
support for dynamic parameterization and automation
rigorous implementation of the MIDI standard
multi-channel operation with General MIDI compatibility
ability to synthesize entire MIDI files out of the box
Carla is a fully-featured modular audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats. It has some nice features like transport control, automation of parameters via MIDI CC and remote control over OSC.
Carla currently supports LADSPA (including LRDF), DSSI, LV2, VST2, VST3 and AU plugin formats, plus SF2 and SFZ file support. It uses JACK as the default and preferred audio driver but also supports native drivers like ALSA, DirectSound or CoreAudio.
There are 4 types of engine processing:
Single-client: (JACK driver only)
Same as Multi-client, except that all JACK ports belong to a single master client.
This is needed when a setup doesn’t support multi-client JACK apps, such as LADISH.
Multi-client: (JACK driver only)
Every single plugin is exposed as a new JACK client. Audio and MIDI ports are registered as needed.
Plugins are processed in order, from top to bottom.
Plugins with non-stereo audio channels are not supported, but a forced-stereo option is available for Mono ones.
Modular patchbay mode, just like in JACK Multi-client and many other modular applications.
Every plugin gets its own canvas group and ports allowing you to interconnect plugin audio and MIDI.
gmorgan is a rhythm station, a modern organ with full editable accompaniment for play in real time emulating the capabilities of commercial rhythm stations “Korg”,”Roland”, “Solton” … also has a small pattern based sequencer like “Band in a Box”. Uses the capabilities of ALSA sequencer to produce MIDI accompaniment.
Seq24 is a minimal loop based midi sequencer. It was created to provide a very simple interface for editing and playing midi ‘loops’. After searching for a software based sequencer that would provide the functionality needed for a live performance, such as the Akai MPC line, the Kawai Q80 sequencer, or the popular Alesis MMT-8, I found nothing similar in the software realm. I set out to create a very minimal sequencer that excludes the bloated features of the large software sequencers, and includes a small subset of features that I have found usable in performing.
Yoshimi is a software audio synthesizer, originally forked from ZynAddSubFX. Follow the links in the header for help with downloading and running it. You can also check out the manuals for detailed help, and listen to examples of music created with Yoshimi. Once you have it all set up, here are just some of the features you will find:
Three separate engines, each with distinctive characteristics, can be used together or individually
Sixteen engine kits for the ultimate in multi-layering of engines, or for synthesized drum kits
Vector Control, manage up to four independent sounds on any channel with faders or an X/Y midi joystick
Solo step through up to 16 sounds seamlessly while playing in real time (including vector sounds)
Microtonal Tuning, Scala-compatible scales and keymaps
Extensive Midi-Learn, capture almost all internal controls and many switches with ordinary 7-bit values, or NRPNs, or even 7-bit NRPNs, then edit the responses
Command Line Access, headless operation and high accessibility, for those with sight- or motor control issues
Rich variations of tone and timbre, Yoshimi provides the means to ensure no two notes are ever identical – just like in the real world
mp3tomid chung is a realtime free polyphonic high quality mp3 audio to MIDI converter written in freebasic with fbsound. It converts mp3 files to polyphonic piano MIDI data sent to the chosen MIDI out port, connected for example to a MIDI recorder to produce MIDI files, or to the onboard PC MIDI mapper for direct listening.
converts mp3 files to MIDI in realtime
compatible with freemp3_chung & mp3_chung playlists (.mp3list files)
include 3 band equalizer, autovol+compressor, speed control for the mp3 input
auto pitch lock
written in compiled freebasic and uses fbsound to handle mp3 files
source code (.bas .bi freebasic files) is included in the zip file
