aveX ~ Linux ABX Testing

aveX is a free software for running and monitoring ABX listening tests. It works as a Jack (Jack Audio Connection Kit) client and is able to send test-status messages over a network for monitoring purposes. ‘A’ and ‘B’ audio files are read in pairs from a list and played in randomized order, the ‘X’ audio file is also randomized and is either ‘A’ or ‘B’ (double-blind test).

The listening test results are written after every choice in a file in text format.

The program is configured by filling in a very simple XML file.
