ng-jackspa is a set of simple user interface programs that host a LADSPA plugin, providing JACK ports for its audio inputs and outputs, and dynamic setting of its control inputs through the user interface. Additionally, the plugin controls can be exported to or controlled by control voltages on standard JACK audio ports. The following interfaces are available: an ncurses visual (full screen) interface for the terminal; a GTK+ graphical interface; a Qt 4 graphical interface; and a command line interface for the terminal.
Screencast makes it easy to produce high-quality screencasts on Linux with support for JACK Audio and updates in full detail. It is indispensable for recording video tutorials, video logs, and other computer activity, and works especially well with audio applications such as Pd, Ardour, and chuck. It is multi-threaded and produces smooth results with no jittery sound or loss of fine detail in screen updates.
LinuxBand is a GUI front-end for MMA (Musical MIDI Accompaniment). Type in the chords, choose the groove, and LinuxBand will play a musical accompaniment for you. It’s an open source alternative to Band-in-a-Box featuring: an easy to use graphical interface, an open and well-documented data format, and output to JACK MIDI to facilitate co-operation with other audio applications.
QJackRcd is a simple Qt application that records JACK server outputs. It was designed to record audio from tape, with an automatic split/pause feature. It aims to provide for simple stereo recording needs with a minimum of configuration. It natively manages silence by threshold and activation time. Silence events can be used to pause the recording or to split files. It can optionally post-process each file after recording is complete.
din is a software musical instrument and audio synthesizer. Bezier curves are used to draw and sculpt waveforms, create gating and modulation (FM and AM) patterns, and create delay feedback and volume patterns. You can also create an unlimited number of drones and sculpt their waveforms. It uses JACK to output audio, and supports MIDI, OSC and IRC bot for input. din can be extended and customized with Tcl scripts.
Khronosphere is an audio recording tool. Its special feature is a buffer that keeps capturing audio even before the actual recording is started. This enables the user to prospectively catch any interesting sound that normally would have been lost. The buffer size is freely definable by the user. The software itself places no restrictions; the only limits are the resources of the host system. Khronosphere is very similar to and inspired by Jack Time Machine. They both have the same basic concept, but Khronosphere supports larger buffer sizes.
