free, minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs, live performers and electronic musicians. Pick up your channel, fill it with samples or MIDI events and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler or yet as a plugin/effect host.

Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.

Si tratta di un editor musicale multipiattaforma C64. Supporta l'output emulato attraverso il motore reSID di Dag Lem, la scheda sonora HardSID o CatWeasel MK3.

Supporta l'output emulato tramite il motore software reSID, la scheda sonora HardSID, o la scheda di controllo Catweasel (MK3/MK4) e produce brani nel proprio formato (*.SNG). Il programma può anche esportare melodie in formato SID, BIN o Commodore PRG per essere incluse in un dischetto che può essere inserito in un drive 1541/1571/1581.

Come la maggior parte dei tracker, il programma può importare file di strumenti, creare e modificare modelli di tracce, impostare l'ordine di riproduzione dei pattern e modificare dettagli della canzone come ad esempio il titolo e l'autore. Se si è abituati ai programmi tracker, GoatTracker sembrerà una semplice versione di questi, sebbene con differenze imputabili all'hardware. Utenti nuovi alla composizione in generale dovrebbero cercare altre informazioni sulla composizione su C64.

SooperLooper è un campionatore per loop live capace di fare in modo immediato registrazioni, overdubbing, moltiplicazioni, inversioni, ecc. di loop. Permette loop multi-canale multipli e simultanei limitati solo dalla memoria presente nel computer.

L'applicazione è un client indipendente di JACK con un motore controllabile via OSC e MIDI. Include anche una GUI che comunica con il motore via OSC (anche via rete) per un controllo amichevole su un desktop.

Ardour is a multichannel hard disk recorder (HDR) and digital audio workstation (DAW). It can be used to control, record, edit and run complex audio setups.

Ardour supports pro-audio interfaces through the ALSA project, which provides high quality, well designed device drivers and API's for audio I/O under Linux. Any interface supported by ALSA can be used with Ardour. This includes the all-digital 26 channel RME Hammerfall, the Midiman Delta 1010 and many others.

Ardour has support for 24 bit samples using floating point internally, non-linear editing with unlimited undo, a user-configurable mixer, MTC master/slave capabilities, MIDI hardware control surface compatibility.

It supports MIDI Machine Control, and so can be controlled from any MMC controller and many modern digital mixers.

Ardour contains a powerful multitrack audio editor/arranger that is completely non-destructive and capable of all standard non-linear editing operations (insert, replace, delete, move, trim, select, cut/copy/paste). The editor has unlimited undo/redo capabilities and can save independent "versions" of a track or an entire piece

Ardour's editor supports the community-developed LADSPA plugin standard. Arbitrary chains of plugins can be attached to any portion of a track. Every mixer strip can have any number of inputs and outputs, not just mono, stereo or 5.1. An N-way panner is included, with support for various panning models. Pre- and post-fader sends exist, each with their own gain and pan controls. Every mixer strip acts as its own bus, and thus the bus count in Ardour is unlimited. You can submix any number of strips into another strip.

Ardour's channel capacity is limited only by the number on your audio interface and the ability of your disk subsystem to stream the data back and forth.

JACK (the JACK Audio Connection Kit) is used for all audio I/O, permitting data to be exchanged in perfect samplesync with other applications and/or hardware audio interfaces.

Ardour is sample rate and size neutral - any hardware formats from 8 to 32 bits, and rates from 8kHz to 192kHz. Internal processing in 32/64 bit IEEE floating point format.

kluppe è scritto in C e usa jack, gtk e sndfile. Le sue caratteristiche includono:

  • buffer multipli per file, tracce multiple per "loop";
  • accesso diretto (GUI) a tutti i loop;
  • porte output per jack combinate e per singolo loop;
  • differenti modalità di riproduzione, inclusa "granulare".

kluppe è la parola austriaca per clip e suona ancora più strana se la si pronuncia ripetutamente in loop.

Seq24 è fatto per fornire un'interfaccia molto semplice per la modifica e l'esecuzione di "loop" MIDI. È un sequencer assolutamente minimale, senza le eccessive funzioni presenti nei grossi sequencer software, con un piccolo sottoinsieme di funzionalità che si sono dimostrate utili nelle esibizioni dal vivo.

LoopDub is software intended for musical performance based on live loop manipulation.

Superboucle - wnpp
Loop based software fully controllable with any midi device
License: GPL 3
Debian package not available

SuperBoucle is a loop based software fully controllable with any midi device. SuperBoucle is also synced with jack transport. You can use it on live performance or for composition.

SuperBoucle is composed of a matrix of sample controllable with external midi device like pad. SuperBoucle will send back information to midi device (light up led). Sample will always start and stop on a beat or group of beats. You can adjust duration of sample (loop period) in beat and offset in beat. But you can also adjust sample offset in raw frame count negative or positive. Which mean sample can start before next beat (useful for reversed sample). You can record loop of any size, adjust BPM, reverse, and normalize samples.
