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/.

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.

meterec works as a basic multi track tape recorder. The aim of meterec is to minimise the interactions of the users with the computer and allow them to focus on their instrumental performance. For this reason meterec features are minimal. One of the main "limitations" is that meterec can only restart from time 0:00:00.00: if you fail one take, start it over again. Rather than learning how to use a specific software to correct what you lost, meterec forces to learn and master your instrument.

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.

Timemachine writes the last 10 seconds of audio before the button press and everything from now on up to the next button press into a WAV-file.

The idea is that you doodle away with whatever is kicking around in your studio and when you heard an interesting noise, you'd press record and capture it, without having to try and recreate it.

It uses the JACK audio connection kit, an API that lets audio application communicate with each other and share audio data in realtime.

Simple video player that receives sync from jackd or MTC. It has applications in soundtrack creation, video monitoring or any task that requires to associate movie frames with audio events.

For instance when a jack-client (like Muse, Rosegarden or Ardour) acts as a timebase master, xjadeo will display the video synchronized to JACK transport. xjadeo is capable to read Midi Time Clock as an alternate sync source and comes along with an optional QT-GUI.

xjadeo reads only seekable media by default. Installing a transcoding utility like mencoder or transcode is highly recommended.

cdrdao bränner ljud eller data cd-r skivor i läget disk-at-once (DAO)baserat på en text-beskrivning av innehållet på cd:n.

Bränna i läget disk-at-once skriver hela skivan, d.v.s. lead-in, ett eller flera spår och lead-out, i ett enda steg. Det mer vanligt använda läget track-at-once (TAO) skriver oberoende varje spår vilket kräver länkade block mellan två spår. Du vill antagligen använda detta om du skall kopiera en cd med flera spår, som de flesta ljud-cd.

cdrdao kan också hantera formaten bin/cue som vanligtvis används för VCD eller skivor med sub-kanal data.

Om du bara vill bränna en normal data-CD så vill du antagligen använda wodim istället.
