Snd can accomodate any number of sounds at once, each with any number of channels. Each channel of each sound is displayed in its own window, with its own cursor, edit history, and marks; each sound has a 'control panel' to try out various changes quickly, and an expression parser, used mainly during searches; there is an overall stack of 'regions' that can be browsed and edited; channels and sounds can be grouped together during editing; edits can be undone and redone without restriction ('unlimited undo'); Snd can be customized using an Emacs-lisp-like syntax; it can also be extended with user-supplied editing or display functions loaded at run time.
- Open source sound project
The l.o.s.s project promotes and supports the use of free, open source music software, in conjunction with Creative Commons (CC) licensing which accepts and encourages sharing. As well as a CD of curated work (also available for free download), the
project's online presence is intended to become a focal point for artists working with open source software, and releasing their work
through CC licenses. Please visit the website for details of how to contribute tracks.
The aim of the project was not to portray any kind of 'open source' sound, but to offer an array of some of the interesting work people are
creating with what is available. The result is an incredibly diverse compilation of internationally renowned artists, encompassing
electronica, sound scapes, hiphop and electro-acoustic amongst other styles.
- Linux Open Source Sound Project
The Linux Open Source Sound Project (L.O.S.S.) has released a compilation CD of musical artists using open source tools . This group is coordinated by Access Space and funded by the Arts Council of England. The CD is a collection of works by musicians who use the Linux operating system and open source software. To download samples and purchase a copy of the disc visit: loss.access-space.net/
Access space is street level media collective that provides the need technology to make art to anyone willing to give back creative energy to group.
- Free Audio, Sound Source Code
Included on this page are source code and libraries that will enable you to program sound cards (eg, Creative Lab's SoundBlaster, etc), manipulate audio, music files (eg MP3, WAV, etc), digitized voice, and so on, using C, C++, Pascal and possibly other languages. For guides on sound algorithms, sound file formats, audio programming tutorials and other references on sound/music programming, check out our Free Online Sound Programming Guides, Tutorials, References page.

- Open Source Benefits With Sound Policy
Potential problems ranging from software maintenance nightmares to intellectual property lawsuits can be avoided by putting a sound open source policy in place. Policies provide guidance to ensure that we all do the right thing. If your strategy involves using open source software in conjunction with internal development, then you need a policy that provides guidance on how to evaluate, use, and maintain open source software. Open source policy needs to address the unique aspects of open source and defer to other IT policies in areas where open source is no different than other software being used or developed internally. Your policy should address how projects are brought into the company, how they are used in the course of development, and procedures that developers should follow to ensure that risks in areas like maintaining the code and protecting intellectual property are minimized.
Open Source Sound
Linux open source sound is a great idea: compile a bunch of music made with and promoting free, open source sound-battering software such as Pure Data, Supercollider and audacity. The finished tracks are available for free as ogg vorbis files [think vegan mp3 files]. All so far so good, promoting open systems and free software has got to be a good thing - not just in a vaguely socialist way, but musically as well. If musicians are able to alter, re-programme and generally pick apart the software that they are using, then hopefully they can return to the blank page, rather than using the commercial grid systems that seem to just spit out readymade musical cliches.
NULL POINTER's piece is a melodic opener gently scrubbing and scattering beats over melancholic minor chords. Likewise AVA bleeps along dreamily, leading us to EDGES glossy drone. JAKE HARRIS' 'eh?' kind of breaks the mellowness with a advert for 'lenoox'.
- Open Source ST-Sound Library
In 1995 I created the YM file format and wrote ST-Sound, a program to play ATARI-ST on your PC. I was very happy to see how ST-Sound was popular. MS-Dos player at first, I write a Windows player, a winamp and a netscape
plugin . And then time passed and I worked on other stuff. Quite often, some people asked me to release the source code, and I always answered that I should clean some code and add license stuff, so I never take
time. This is the most important directory.Portable C++ code to play YM files into your
own production. There is a simple "C like" user API, and you just need to include "StSoundLibrary.h" to work with YM files. See tutorial projects for details. Theorically should compile under windows,
