ChucK ~ Music Programming Language


ChucK is a programming language for real-time sound synthesis and music creation. It is open-source and freely available on MacOS X, Windows, and Linux. ChucK presents a unique time-based, concurrent programming model that’s precise and expressive (we call this strongly-timed), dynamic control rates, and the ability to add and modify code on-the-fly. In addition, ChucK supports MIDI, OpenSoundControl, HID device, and multi-channel audio. It’s fun and easy to learn, and offers composers, researchers, and performers a powerful programming tool for building and experimenting with complex audio synthesis/analysis programs, and real-time interactive music.

Humdrum Toolkit ~ Software for Music Research


David Huron created Humdrum in the 1980s, and it has been used steadily for decades. Humdrum is a set of command-line tools that facilitates musical analysis, as well as a generalized syntax for representing sequential streams of data. Because it’s a set of command-line tools, it’s program-language agnostic. Many have employed Humdrum tools in larger scripts that use PERL, Ruby, Python, Bash, LISP, and C++.

LINGOT ~ Linux Instrument Tuner


LINGOT is a musical instrument tuner. It’s accurate, easy to use, and highly configurable. Originally conceived to tune electric guitars, it can now be used to tune other instruments.

It looks like an analogue tuner, with a gauge indicating the relative shift to a certain note, determined automatically as the closest note to the estimated frequency.

  • It’s free software. LINGOT is distributed under the GPL license.
  • It’s really quick and accurate, perfect for real-time microtonal tuning.
  • Easy to use. Just plug in your instrument and run it.
  • LINGOT is a universal tuner. It can tune many musical instruments, you only need to provide the temperaments. For that purpose, it supports the Scala project .scl format.
  • Highly configurable via GUI. It’s possible to change any parameter while the program is running, without editing any file.

Flacon ~ Unix Audio File Encoder


Flacon extracts individual tracks from one big audio file containing the entire album of music and saves them as separate audio files.

To do this, it uses information from the appropriate CUE file. Besides, Flacon makes it possible to conveniently revise or specify tags both for all tracks at once or for each tag separately.

  • Supported input formats: WAV, FLAC, APE, WavPack, True Audio (TTA).
  • Supported out formats: FLAC, WAV, WavPack, AAC, OGG or MP3.
  • ReplayGain analysis (album-gain and track-gain modes).
  • Multi-threaded conversion process.
  • Automatic character set detection for CUE files.
  • Generation of the pertrack CUE file in the output dir.
