Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for production use and live sets.
Libsonic is a free C library for speeding up or slowing down speech. However, it's optimized for speed-ups of over 2X, unlike previous algorithms for changing speech rate. Sonic enables clear playback of audio books at 3X speed, and some blind listeners are able to listen at 6X. Libsonic has also been integrated into several text-to-speech engines. It works well on all platforms, even Android phones without FPUs. Pitch control is also supported.
The Kowalski project aims to provide a data driven, lightweight cross platform audio solution. The target audience is developers of games and similar applications where real time audio plays an important role. The Kowalski engine, which is the runtime component, relies only on host-specific external libraries to pass the final output buffers to the audio hardware. All other processing is done in the engine code. Features include positional audio (distance attenuation, cone attenuation, Doppler shift, binaural panning), real time Ogg Vorbis decoding, a powerful mix bus system, and tools to build, validate, and view Kowalski data.
Le Biniou works with music, voice, ambient sounds, and whatever acoustic source you chose. When you run Le Biniou, it gives a revolutionary rendering of the sound you are playing. You can entirely manage the sequences and chose your own series of pictures from the default library, your colour scales, and the kind of alteration you want to apply, or you can let Le Biniou's artificial intelligence run on its own. Forget the old visualizations you are familiar with and discover a new multidimensional (spatial and chromatic) way of comprehending music and sounds for artistic, recreational, or didactic purposes.
Bangarang is a semantically empowered media player. Fully integrated with KDE’s Nepomuk semantic storage, Bangarang has access to indexed media information and automatically shares its own media information, rating, tags, and usage statistics with other Nepomuk powered applications.

Plasma desktop widgets with MPRIS support can directly control Bangarang. Bangarang keeps you in control of your media experience. It provides quick access to lists of recently played, highest rated, and frequently played items. The Info View provides helpful information when you need it. Media information can be edited easily. It can fetch artist, song, movie, and TV show information from open data providers like Last.fm, themoviedb.org, and theTVDB.com. Bangarang lets you use either tags or files and folders to organize your media in any way you wish.
