Composite is a software application/system for real-time, in-performance sequencing, sampling, and looping. It has a strong emphasis on the needs of live performance improvisation. It is built around the Tritium audio engine, which also includes LV2 plugins.

This package contains the Composite Sampler Plugin (LV2) and the main GUI (composite-gui).

이것은 크로스 플랫폼 C64 음악 편집기입니다. Dag Lem의 reSID 엔진, HardSID 사운드 카드 또는 CatWeasel MK3를 통한 에뮬레이트된 출력 지원.

소프트웨어 reSID 엔진, HardSID 사운드카드, 또는 Catweasel (MK3/MK4) 컨트롤 러를 통한 에뮬레이트된 출력을 지원하며 자신만의 형식 (*.SNG)으로 노래를 만 듭니다. 이 프로그램은 1541/1571/1581 드라이브에 넣을 수 있는 플로피에 포함 시킬 수 있도록 SID 형식, BIN 형식, 또는 Commodore PRG 형식으로 노래를 내보 낼 수 있습니다.

대부분의 트랙커 프로그램처럼, 이 프로그램은 악기 파일 가져오기, 트랙 패턴 생성 및 편집, 패턴 재생 순서 설정 및 제목과 작곡가 같은 노래의 세부 정보 변 경이 가능합니다. 트랙커같은 프로그램에 익숙하다면, GoatTracker는 하드웨어와 관련된 차이점을 제외하면 트랙커 프로그램의 단순화된 버젼으로 느낄 것 입니 다. 일반적으로 작곡을 처음하는 사람들은 C64로 작곡하는 것에 대한 다른 정보 를 찾아야 할 것입니다.

SooperLooper is a live looping sampler capable of immediate loop recording, overdubbing, multiplying, reversing and more. It allows for multiple simultaneous multi-channel loops limited only by your computer's available memory.

The application is a standalone JACK client with an engine controllable via OSC and MIDI. It also includes a GUI which communicates with the engine via OSC (even over a network) for user-friendly control on a 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.

Further information can be found at http://ardour.org/.

Kluppe는 C로 개발되었으며 jack, gtk, sndfile을 사용합니다. 아래 기능들을 포 함합니다:

  • 다중 파일 버퍼, 다중 'loopers' 트랙
  • 모든 loopers를 위한 다이렉트 (gui) 엑세스
  • jack위한 결합 및 루프 출력당 포트
  • "granular"를 포함하는 서로 다른 재생모드

kluppe는 오스트리아 말로 clip을 의미하며, 이를 반복하면 말도 안되는 소리가 나옵니다.

Seq24 was created to provide a very simple interface for editing and playing midi 'loops'. It is a very minimal sequencer that excludes the bloated features of the large software sequencers and includes a small subset that proved to be useful for live performances.

The Non DAW Studio is a modular system composed of four main parts consisting of the Non Timeline, the Non Mixer, the Non Sequencer, and the Non Session Manager.

The Non DAW Studio is a complete studio that is fast and light enough to run on low-end hardware.

This is the Non Sequencer package.

Loopdub - wnpp
Software for live audio loop manipulation
License: GPL-2
Debian package not available

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.
