sndio ~ Unix Audio & MIDI Server


Sndio is a small audio and MIDI framework part of the OpenBSD project and ported to FreeBSD, Linux and NetBSD. It provides a lightweight audio & MIDI server and a fully documented user-space API to access either the server or the hardware directly in a uniform way. Sndio is designed to work for desktop applications, but pays special attention to synchronization mechanisms and reliability required by music applications. Reliability through simplicity are part of the project goals.

DrumGizmo ~ Multilayered Drum Application & Plugin


DrumGizmo is an open source, multichannel, multilayered, cross-platform drum plugin and stand-alone application. It enables you to compose drums in midi and mix them with a multichannel approach. It is comparable to that of mixing a real drumkit that has been recorded with a multi mic setup.

Features:
  • Stand-alone, Lv2 and VSTi versions available
  • Open drumkit file format, allowing the community to create their own drumkits
  • Drum velocity, allowing for several different hit velocities for each drum
  • Multichannel output, making it possible to mix it just the way you would a real drumkit
  • Optional built-in humanizer, analyzing the midi notes, adjusting velocities on-the-fly
  • Stand-alone midi renderer, generating .wav files, 1 for each channel
  • Stand-alone midi input, making it possible to use DrumGizmo as a software sampler for an electronic drumkit

SooperLooper ~ Live Looping Sampler


SooperLooper is a live looping sampler capable of immediate loop recording, overdubbing, multiplying, reversing and more. It allows for multiple simultaneous multi-channel loops limited only by your computer’s available memory.

The application is a standalone JACK client with an engine controllable via OSC and MIDI. It also includes a GUI which communicates with the engine via OSC (even over a network) for user-friendly control on a desktop. However, this kind of live performance looping tool is most effectively used via hardware (midi foot pedals, etc) and the engine can be run standalone on a computer without a monitor.

SooperLooper is currently supported on Linux and Mac OS X, and any other platforms that support JACK. The Mac OS X package is usable with at least the 0.6 release of JACK OS X. Note that for OS X Tiger, you’ll need to get at least version 0.7 of JACK-OSX.
