Daemon for exposing legacy ALSA MIDI in JACK MIDI systems

Main goal of this project is to ease usage of legacy, not JACK-ified apps, in a JACK MIDI enabled system. a2jmidid is a daemon that implements automatic bridging. For every ALSA sequencer port you get one JACK MIDI port. If ALSA sequencer port is both one input and one output, you get two JACK MIDI ports, one input and one output.

/main/abcde/abcde

A Better CD Encoder

frontend program to cdparanoia, wget, cd-discid, id3, and your favorite Ogg/Vorbis, MP3, FLAC, Ogg/Speex, M4A, Opus, WavPack, Monkey's Audio (ape), MPP/MP+(Musepack) and/or AIFF format encoder (defaults to oggenc). Grabs an entire CD and converts each track to the specified formats and then comments or tags each file, with one command. . With abcde you can encode several formats with one single command, using a single CD read operation. It also allows you to read and encode while not on the internet, and later query a CDDB or Musicbrainz server to lookup metadata and tag your files.


converter from ABC to MIDI format and back

This package contains the programs `abc2midi' and `midi2abc', which convert from the abc musical notation format to standard MIDI format and vice-versa. They can generate accompaniment from guitar chords in the abc file, as well as insert various MIDI events; the MIDI-to-abc translation tries to figure out bars, triplets and accidentals on its own. . The package also contains `abc2abc' (an abc prettyprinter/transposer), `mftext' (a program that dumps a MIDI file as text), and `midicopy' (a program that extracts specific tracks, channels or time intervals from a MIDI file). . The package also contains Yet another ABC to PostScript converter (yaps) which translates tunes written in the ABC format to PostScript, which can then be viewed on screen or printed. It is essentially a (non-exclusive) alternative to abc2ps, being based on the abc2ps PostScript code together with the ABC parser from the abcmidi package.

/main/abgate/abgate

LV2 noise gate plugin

abGate is a LV2 noise gate plugin in the LV2 format to manage noise. A noise gate is a component which attenuates an audio signal when it falls below a set threshold, so it can be applied to an audio track which has one or more periods of silence where no noise should be apparent.


synchronizes musical applications on multiple devices - GUI utils

Ableton Link, a technology that synchronizes musical beat, tempo, and phase across multiple applications running on one or more devices. Applications on devices connected to a local network discover each other automatically and form a musical session in which each participant can perform independently: anyone can start or stop while still staying in time. Anyone can change the tempo, the others will follow. Anyone can join or leave without disrupting the session. . This package contains GUI utilities to check synchronisation.

/main/abx/abx

audio ABX testing software

abx is a program for performing software-based audio ABX testing on GNU/Linux systems. ABX test (Wikipedia, Hydrogenaudio) is a statistical test for assessing whether you are able to tell for audible differences between two samples. For example, one sample can be a compressed audio file such as OGG Vorbis file and another one its uncompressed variant (WAV, AU, …). You can then use abx to infer whether you are able to separate the two samples due to compression artifacts.


graphical ALSA sequencer connection manager

aconnectgui is a graphical utility to connect and disconnect two existing ports on ALSA sequencer system. The ports with the arbitrary subscription permission, such as created by aseqview, can be connected to any (MIDI) device ports. . aconnectgui is a frontend for aconnect, written directly on top of the aconnect source, leaving the original source intact, only adding a couple of ifdefs, and some calls to the gui part. It provides exactly the same functionality, but with a graphical user interface. . Homepage: http://www.iua.upf.es/~mdeboer/projects/aconnectgui/


Acoustid fingerprinter

GUI application for submission Chromaprint-generated audio fingerprints to the Acoustid service.

/main/adplay/adplay

console-based OPL2 audio player

AdPlay is AdPlug's console-based frontend. AdPlug is a free, universal OPL2 audio playback library. AdPlay/UNIX supports the full range of AdPlug's file format playback features. Despite this, at the moment, only emulated OPL2 output is supported by AdPlay, but this on a wide range of output devices.

/main/aeolus/aeolus

Synthesised pipe organ emulator

Aeolus is a synthesised (i.e. not sampled) pipe organ emulator that should be good enough to make an organist enjoy playing it. It is a software synthesiser optimised for this job, with possibly hundreds of controls for each stop, that enable the user to "voice" his instrument. . Main features of the default instrument: three manuals and one pedal, five different temperaments, variable tuning, MIDI control of course, stereo, surround or Ambisonics output, flexible audio controls including a large church reverb. . Aeolus is not very CPU-hungry, and should run without problems on a e.g. a 1GHz, 256Mb machine.


make snapshots of JACK connections

Aj-snapshot is a small program that can be used to make snapshots of the connections made between JACK and/or ALSA clients. Because JACK can provide both audio and MIDI support to programs, aj-snapshot can store both types of connections for JACK. ALSA, on the other hand, only provides routing facilities for MIDI clients. Aj-snapshot is meant to be used from the command line.

/main/aliki/aliki

Measurement tool for Impulse Responses

Measure Impulse Responses using a sine sweep and deconvolution. For more complete introduction to this method, see http://kokkinizita.linuxaudio.org/linuxaudio/downloads/aliki-manual.pdf


dummy package to ease purging of obsolete conffiles

This is an empty dummy package with the only purpose of ensuring obsolete kmod files will be removed from the system. This functionality is now shipped in kmod.


ALSA wrapper for OSS applications

This package contains a program loader, aoss, which wraps applications written for OSS in a compatibility library, thus allowing them to work with ALSA. . There are two ways of getting an application to work with ALSA if the application was written for OSS. The first way is to load the special ALSA drivers that emulate the OSS kernel interface; these allow the application to open /dev/dsp0 and other OSS device files. The second way is to wrap the application in the libaoss library provided in this package; the wrapper causes the application to access native ALSA device files such as /dev/snd/pcmC0D0c instead of OSS device files. . Use of the alsa-oss library is recommended over the use of OSS-emulation drivers if you want to use ALSA's PCM plugin layer. . ALSA is the Advanced Linux Sound Architecture. . OSS is the free version of the Open Sound System.
