CDex ~ Digital Audio CD Extractor

CDex can extract the data directly (digital) from an Audio CD, which is generally called a CD Ripper or a CDDA utility. The resulting audio file can be a plain WAV file (useful for making compilation audio CDs) or the ripped audio data can be compressed using an audio encoder such as MP3, FLAC, AAC, WMA or OGG. Many other encoders are supported.

xwax ~ Digital Vinyl System

xwax is an open-source Digital Vinyl System (DVS) for Linux. It allows DJs and turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg VorbisFLAC, AAC and more), controlled using a normal pair of turntables via timecoded vinyls.

It’s designed for both beat mixing and scratch mixing. Needle drops, pitch changes, scratching, spinbacks and rewinds are all supported, and feel just like the audio is pressed onto the vinyl itself.

The focus is on an accurate vinyl feel which is efficient, stable and fast.

Smart Mix Player ~ DJ & Radio Automation

Smart Mix Player is a free auto disc jockey player for Linux and Windows. It plays audio files as a non stop mix, but not in the way that traditional auto DJ software does!

Most of these players mix songs together at the end of a song with a simple fade out and fade in. Smart Mix Player goes a big step further and mixes like a real DJ!

Surge ~ Subtractive Hybrid Synthesizer

This is the synthesizer plug-in Surge which (@kurasu) Claes Johanson previously sold as a commercial product via the company vember audio.

As he is too busy with other projects and no longer wanted to put the effort into maintaining Surge across multiple platforms, he decided to give it new life as an open-source project.

It was originally released in 2005, and was one of Claes’ first bigger projects. It is reliable and sounds great.
