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/.

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 Gtk Wave Cleaner (gwc) is an application that helps you in getting rid of noise and clicks in audio files. This is most commonly used when translating your old vinyl or old tapes to a digital format, but it can be applied to every soundfile that has a more or less constant noise level.

Japa, is a 'perceptual' or 'psychoacoustic' audio spectrum analyser. Possible uses include spectrum monitoring while mixing or mastering, evaluation of ambient noise, and (using pink noise) equalisation of PA systems.

It supports up to four audio inputs of which two can graphically be compared. Additionally a pink noise and white noise generator is running after starting japa.

A jkmeter displays both the true RMS level and the digital peak level. But can display stereo correlation too.

Jkmeter is based on the ideas of mastering guru Bob Katz. See http://www.digido.com/bob-katz/index.php and follow the links on 'level practices'. This is the type of meter you want for live recording, mixing and mastering

A jnoisemeter is a small app designed to measure audio test signals and in particular noise signals.

The simplest use is to measure the S/N ratio of your sound card. If you can calibrate the input levels of your soundcard it can also be used (with some external hardware) to measure noise levels of any type of audio equipment, including preamps and microphones.

pyMapperGUI is a Graphical User Interface for libmapper

libmapper is a cross-platform software library for declaring data signals on a shared network and enabling arbitrary connections to be made between them. It creates a distributed mapping system/network, with no central points of failure, the potential for tight collaboration and easy parallelization of media synthesis.

QasTools is a collection of desktop applications for the Linux sound system ALSA.

The applications included are:

  • QasConfig - browser for the ALSA configuration tree
  • QasHctl - mixer for ALSA's High level Control Interface
  • QasMixer - desktop mixer with features similar to alsamixer

QasHctl is a mixer application for ALSA's "High level Control Interface". This interface allows more complex interaction than the "Simple Mixer Interface" which is used by alsamixer and QasMixer.

VLevel keeps your music from making you jump out of your seat, and it keeps you from having to fiddle with the volume constantly. It's different from other dynamic compressors because it looks ahead. You can think of VLevel as someone who knows your music by heart, and turns the volume up during quiet passages, but smoothly turns it back down when he knows a loud part is coming. It's great for making CDs to listen to in your car, or to play background music on your computer.

VLevel is currently a LADSPA plugin, a JACK plugin and a command-line filter. You can use it with many Linux audio programs including XMMS, GStreamer, GLAME, GDAM, and others, and you can use it in shell scripts to level your music before burning a CD.

The commandline filter is also useful for levelling podcasts before (encoding and) publishing.

Nama is a text-based application for multitrack recording, mixing and mastering using the Ecasound audio engine developed by Kai Vehmanen.

Features include tracks, buses, effects, presets, sends, inserts, marks and regions. Nama runs under JACK and ALSA audio frameworks, automatically detects LADSPA plugins, and supports Ladish Level 1 session handling.

All editing under Nama is non-destructive. Effects are generally applied in realtime. A track caching (track freezing) function is also available.

The command prompt accepts Nama commands, Ecasound interactive-mode commands, shell commands and perl code, providing command history and autocompletion. The help system covers internal commands and LADSPA effects and includes keyword search.

By default, Nama displays a simple graphic interface while the command processor runs in a terminal window. The -t option provides a text-only interface for console users.

PNMixer is a simple mixer application designed to run in your system tray. It integrates nicely into desktop environments that don't have a panel that supports applets and therefore can't run a mixer applet. In particular it's been used quite a lot with fbpanel and tint2, but should run fine in any system tray.

PNMixer is designed to work on systems that use ALSA for sound management. Any other sound driver like OSS or FFADO, or sound server like PulseAudio or Jack, are currently not supported (patches welcome).

Silan is a standalone application to analyze audio files for silence and print ranges of detected signals.

It supports a variety of audio-formats and codecs by making use of libsndfile and ffmpeg/libav for reading audio-data.

Signal threshold and hold-off time can be freely configured. The output can be formatted with samples or seconds as unit or printed as audacity label file.

The aim of Sonic Visualiser is to be the first program you reach for when want to study a musical recording rather than simply listen to it.

Sonic Visualiser could be of particular interest to musicologists, archivists, signal-processing researchers and anyone else looking for a friendly way to take a look at what lies inside the audio file.

SoX is a command line utility that can convert various formats of computer audio files in to other formats. It can also apply various effects to these sound files during the conversion. As an added bonus, SoX can play and record audio files on several unix-style platforms.

SoX is able to handle formats like Ogg Vorbis, MP3, WAV, AIFF, VOC, SND, AU, GSM and several more. Any format support requires at least libsox-fmt-base. Some formats have their own package e.g. mp3 read and write support is provided by libsox-fmt-mp3.

SoX supports most common sound architectures i.e. Alsa, Libao, OSS and Pulse (respectively provided by libsox-fmt-alsa, libsox-fmt-ao, libsox-fmt-oss and libsox-fmt-pulse). It also supports LADSPA plugins.
