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 cmdline utilities to check synchronisation.

These tools help controlling loudness of audio material aimed primarily for broadcasting, but they can be useful in other situation.

ebumeter and ebur128 allow users to measure Momentary (400 ms), Short term (3s) and Integrated Loudness (from start to stop). They can be used on audio files and signals through JACK.

This package contains two programs:

  • ebumeter - interactive meter working via jackd
  • ebur128 - the command line app to measure sound files

The MP4v2 library provides an API to create and modify mp4 files as defined by ISO-IEC:14496-1:2001 MPEG-4 Systems. This file format is derived from Apple's QuickTime file format that has been used as a multimedia file format in a variety of platforms and applications. It is a very powerful and extensible format that can accommodate practically any type of media.

MP4v2 was originally bundled with mpeg4ip library, but has been moved into its own maintained library due to a combination of the cessation of support of mpeg4ip and the usefulness of this library on its own.

This package contains the command line frontends.

xwax is open-source vinyl emulation software for Linux. It allows DJs and turntablists to playback digital audio files (MP3, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC, 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.

jackEQ is a tool for routing and manipulating audio from/to multiple input/output sources. It runs in the JACK Audio Connection Kit, and uses LADSPA for its backend DSP work, specifically the DJ EQ swh plugin created by Steve Harris, one of jackEQ's main authors.

jackEQ is intended to provide an accessible method for tweaking the treble, mid and bass of any JACK aware applications output. Designed specifically for live performance, it is modelled on various DJ mixing consoles which the main author has used.

jackEQ wll allow sound as rich and powerful as Jackie O, as street smart as Jackie Brown. jackEQ may be the first female entity in JACKs realm. Is jackEQ more than you can handle?

MP3FS is a read-only FUSE filesystem which transcodes audio formats (currently FLAC) to MP3 on the fly when opened and read.

It is also a novel alternative to traditional mp3 encoder applications. Users can use their favorite file browser to select the files they want encoded and copy them somewhere.

terminatorX is a realtime audio synthesizer that allows you to "scratch" on digitally sampled audio data (.wav, .au, *.mp3, etc.) the way hiphop-DJs scratch on vinyl records. It features multiple turntables, realtime effects (built-in as well as LADSPA plugin effects), a sequencer and an easy-to-use GTK+ GUI.

application to control DMX or analog lighting systems
License: GPL
Debian package not available

Q Light Controller is a cross-platform application for controlling DMX or analog lighting systems like moving heads, dimmers, scanners etc. The goal is to replace hard-to-learn and somewhat limited commercial lighting desks with FLOSS.

Lots of additional DMX interfaces are supported thru the Open Lighting Architecture (OLA) on Linux and Mac OS X.
