Hydrogen is an advanced drum machine for GNU/Linux. It's main goal is to bring professional yet simple and intuitive pattern-based drum programming.

We define orDrumbox as a software drum machine on a desktop application. A fully-featured drum machine and audio sequencer designed to a creative pattern based way of drum programming. You can compose music and beats with this new generation of sound tracker. For more informations, see the detailled features.

Smack is a drum synth, 100% sample free. It intends to emulate a large number of famous drum machines (TR/others) as well as sample code for physical modeling. It's built with LADSPA plugins and the Om modular synth.

Currently it's got full TR808 drums, TR909 bass and snare, noise based drums, formant and compression based drums, frequency shifting drums (Single side band) and some FM hihats. For the full low down on physical synthesis and related stuff you can check out my thesis. For a quick one page summary of some of the issues with exciter modeling you can look at my hands as exciters thing.

I'm keen to hear any thoughts or feature requests, and especially any music made with smack. If there is a drum that you want and it's not here TELL ME. If there is a prob, tell me too. I don't bite.

The LDRUM is an open-source drummachine that offers ten channels, realtime control, a simple pattern sequencer and a graphical user-interface. It currently runs under Linux only, it is developed in C++ and uses JACK, ALSA, Qt and LADSPA (it's a JAQL app;)

An "7x7" type midi drum sequencer for Linux, based on functionality of Roland's TR-707

Gneutronica is a simple MIDI drum machine and rudimentary sequencer program. If you are familiar with Hydrogen, you'll find yourself pretty much at home with Gneutronica. Gneutronica lets you create patterns of melody or drum beats one measure long, allows you to divide up each measure into however many beats you like (several times simultaneously, if you want) and then arrange those patterns into a sequence for playback. Essentially it's a tool with which to create drum tracks and instrument tracks and play them back via MIDI devices.

Editoren & Recording Zitat:
Ecawave is a simple graphical audio file editor. The user-interface is based on Qt libraries, while almost all audio functionality is taken directly from Ecasound libraries. As ecawave is designed for editing large audio files, all processing is done direct-to-disk. Simple waveform caching is used to speed-up file operations. Ecawave supports all audio file formats and effect algorithms provided by Ecasound libraries. This includes JACK, ALSA, OSS, aRts, over 20 file formats, over 30 effect types, LADSPA plugins and multi-operator effect presets. Zitat:

Uses sox ( that is command line program for sound conversion. Sox must be installed in the system (verify with the command 'sox -h'). Flrec should works on every system where SoX can play and rec (then not on Windows).

Flrec works, but is still under development. The functionality for the future 1.0 version are exposed at the bottom of this page.

Flrec is free software, released under the terms of GNU GPL

Traverso is a multitrack audio recording and editing program for GNU/Linux with special emphasis to create an easy to use program with a clean and intuitive interface. User Interface concept Traverso uses a contextual interaction interface.

Instead of using (only) the mouse to operate on certain objects, the mouse and keyboard are used together to control the program.

This results in a higher flexibility to control the program compared to the 2 or 3 mouse buttons available if the mouse was used alone. The mouse only has to move on an object and all functions become available by pressing a key on the keyboard. This is more efficient and requires less interaction than selecting the object and choosing the function from a menu. Since the object under the mouse cursor is automatically selected, this concept is called "soft selection". It differs also from the more generally known "key shortcuts" which do not operate in a context, or only on "hard selected" objects.

To help new users to learn this way of controlling an application, Traverso offers "Contextual Menus", a detailed help file, and a tutorial on this web site. What can Traverso do for you? Traverso is able to do multitrack recordings with all audiocards supported by ALSA, including the more professional multichannel audiocards. Importing existing audio is supported too, and a number of editing capabilities are offered to arrange and mix your recordings, see features page for more details

Traverso has a small memory footprint, and runs fast on all systems available today, and reasonably from Pentium II class like systems and upwards.

Looper & Sequencer

Freecycle is a beat slicer running on GNU/Linux platform using the QT toolkit, providing amplitude domain and frequency domain beat matching / zero crossing algorithms.

It exports sliced audio chunks and generates a MIDI file which can be used to play the sliced loop, or you can jam with it as soon as you’ve made slices using a midi keyboard or sequencer.Freecycle main screen

Freecycle also exports AKAI S5000/S6000/Z4/Z8 .AKP files to be used with your favorite sampler, SoundFont files, and supports slice drag and drop to/from or inside Freecycle.

It can process the audio inline using LADSPA effects, as well as apply envelopes to separate slices.

Freewheeling is a new way to be In The Muse-ical Moment. It's a live looping instrument that returns us to the joy of making music spontaneously.

kluppe is a loop-player and recorder, designed for live use. kluppe is open source. kluppe does not sound nor look like microsoftTM excel#!&© kluppe is the austrian word for clip or peg and sounds even crazier if you loop it.


Welcome to LoopDub, an audio application for live loop manipulation.


  • Can be used with a MIDI controller. Typically designed for something like the Edirol PCR-30, which has 8 sliders and 8 knobs as well as a 30-key keyboard.
  • Play and manipulate up to 8 loops.
  • "Wait" button for dropping a channel into the mix on beat.
  • Live low-pass and delay filters.
  • Live jamming with the keyboard.
  • Looping smaller parts of each loop on beat.

SooperLooper is a live looping sampler capable of immediate loop recording, overdubbing, multiplying, reversing and more. It allows for multiple simultaneous multi-channel loops limited only by your computer's available memory. The feature-set and operation was inspired by the impressive Gibson Echoplex Digital Pro (EDP). When used with a low-latency audio configuration SooperLooper is capable of truly realtime live performance looping.

The application is a standalone JACK client with an engine controllable via OSC and MIDI. It also includes a GUI which communicates with the engine via OSC (even over a network) for user-friendly control on a desktop. However, this kind of live performance looping tool is most effectively used via hardware (midi footpedals, etc) and the engine can be run standalone on a computer without a monitor.

Dino is a MIDI sequencer for GNU/Linux. It is free software released under the GNU General Public License.

Dino is a pattern-based sequencer, which means that you write small patterns of MIDI events that you can repeat and arrange to create a whole song. Each track has its own patterns, so you can for example play the same drum pattern over and over again while you play different lead synth patterns and basslines.

gmorgan is a rhythm station, a modern organ with full editable accompaniment for play in real time emulating the capabilities of commercial rhythm stations “Korg”,”Roland”, “Solton” ... also has a small pattern based sequencer like “Band in a Box”. Uses the capabilities of ALSA sequencer to produce MIDI accompaniment.

LMMS combines the features of a tracker-/sequencer-program (pattern-/channel-/ sample-/song-/effect-management) and those of powerful synthesizers and samplers in a modern, user-friendly and easy to use graphical user-interface.

Using LMMS you can produce electronic music with your computer, so you don't have to buy expensive hardware for having great sounds and making cool music.

Gungirl Sequencer is an easy to use Audiosequencer. It includes a simple Filemanager and uses Drag & Drop to arrange Audiosamples.

Jackbeat is an audio sequencer, a Linux tool for musicians and sound artists :

  • drummachine-like interface for fast and easy editing
  • realtime operation : while playing, the sequence can be edited and resized, the bpm rate modified, and new samples loaded,
  • virtually unlimited number of tracks and beats
  • easy to use and yet powerful : just JACK it into jack-rack and you can apply LADSPA effect plugins on a per track basis, perform mastering with jackeq , etc...
  • loads and saves .jab files, Jackbeat's file format, based on xml and packed with tar,
  • unique masking feature : allows to insert silences with precision into a given track.

Om is a realtime modular synthesizer and effects processor for GNU/Linux audio systems using the Jack audio server and LADSPA or DSSI plugins.

Its engine runs as an independent process controlled via the Open Sound Control (OSC) protocol, meaning many clients can control the engine simultaneously - even across a network.

Included is a GTK client (see screenshots), Python bindings, SuperCollider bindings, and a command line patch loading client, but Om can be controlled by anything that can send OSC messages.

Om is Free Software licensed under the GNU GPL.

Seq24 is a minimal loop based midi sequencer for linux.

It was created to provide a very simple interface for editing and playing midi 'loops'. After searching for a software based sequencer that would provide the functionality needed for a live performance, such as the Akai MPC line, the Kawai Q80 sequencer, or the popular Alesis MMT-8, I found nothing similar in the software realm. I set out to create a very minimal sequencer that excludes the bloated features of the large software sequencers, and includes a small subset of features that I have found usable in performing.

Rosegarden is a professional audio and MIDI sequencer, score editor, and general-purpose music composition and editing environment.

MusE is a MIDI/Audio sequencer with recording and editing capabilities written by Werner Schweer. MusE aims to be a complete multitrack virtual studio for Linux ...

Tutka is a free (as in freedom) tracker style MIDI sequencer for GNU/Linux. It is similar to programs like SoundTracker, ProTracker and FastTracker except that it does not support samples and is meant for MIDI use only. Tutka is licensed under the GNU GPL.

Tutka uses a custom XML based file format for storing songs. Songs in OctaMED SoundStudio's MMD2 file format can also be loaded and saved.


ZynAddSubFX is a opensource software synthesizer capable of making a countless number of instruments, from some common heared from expensive hardware to interesting sounds that you'll boost to an amazing universe of sounds. The project started in March 2002, and I had written it because I wish to make a synthesizer that produces very beautiful sounds, but which is freely available to anybody who needs it.


TuxGuitar Zitat: About: TuxGuitar is a multitrack guitar tablature editor and player. It can open GP3, GP4, and GP5 files.

Author: Julian Casadesus

Tux-Guitar ist ein Programm welches sich bei SuSE 9.3, SuSE-10.0 und SuSE-10.1 recht einfach über YAST installieren lässt (repository suser-oc2pus). Es ist dann anschließend unter Multimedia > Musik zu finden. Genauso einfach lässt sich das Programm starten. Das Programm kann als normaler User gestartet werden. Vom Prinzip ist das gute Stück ein MIDI-Player. Doch seine Stärken liegen darin, dass man ganz schnell mal sein eigenes Gitarrensolo eingeben kann, oder Übungen für Schüler. Das ganze läßt sich dann als pdf-Datei exportieren. Zur Eingabe muss das Griffbrett unten aktiviert werden. Das geht über die Gibson Gitarre die Angus Youngs ähnlich sieht. Die rhytmische Verteilung macht man mit der Tabulartur und den entsprechenden Notenwerten. Auf welcher Saite ein Ton gespielt wird, gibt man über das Griffbrett ein. Es ist ein empfehlenswertes Programm für jeden Gitarristen.


KGuitar ist ein Programm welches sich bei SuSE 9.3(repository packman), SuSE-10.0 und SuSE-10.1 (repository suser-oc2pus) wie auch tuxguitar relativ problemlos über YAST, apt oder smart installieren lässt. Und auch ein ähnliches Anwenderprogramm ist. Viele kleine Spielereien wie die Punkte auf dem Griffbrett entfernen, oder als Balken darstellen, und die Tonleitern lassen sich in verschiedenen Tonarten, in Dur, Harmonisch-Moll und Pentatonik darstellen. Leider vermisse ich hier einen pdf-Export. Das Icon eine Gitarre mit einem "K" ist sehr gelungen. GuitarTeX Muss selbst kompiliert werden

LinuxSampler is a work in progress. The goal is to produce a free, open source pure software audio sampler with professional grade features, comparable to both hardware and commercial Windows/Mac software samplers and to introduce new features not yet available by any other sampler in the world.

LinuxSampler was designed as a sampler backend, decoupled from any user interface. It provides a network interface using an ASCII based protocol called LSCP for controlling the sampler and managing sampler sessions. But don't be afraid, with QSampler we already have a convenient GUI frontend (based on the cross-platform GUI library Qt) for LinuxSampler and due to the decoupled design you can even control the sampler with the GUI frontend from another computer, probably even running another OS like Windows or OS X. Beside our own custom network control layer we planned to add existing ones as well (e.g. OSC). With the planned SMP and cluster support LinuxSampler might become a very interesting tool for high-end studios and concerts in future.

It is planned to support all common sampler formats in LinuxSampler, but at the moment we chose to concentrate on the Gigasampler format, because we think it's currently the best sampler format in regards of quality and power, especially for the synthesis of natural instruments like pianos, brass and bowed instruments. But we already made good advance in implementing this format, so we are optimistic to start with adding other formats soon. Beside that we also planned to design our own, sophisticated sampler format to introduce a more powerful and more flexible sampler format compared to any sampler format currently available in the world. Be encouraged to share your ideas about such a new format with us!

Anyway, there are so many things to do and our hands are limited. So don't hesitate on participating to the project!

Zitat: ac3jack is a tool for creating an AC-3 (Dolby Digital) multichannel stream from its JACK input ports. Using this tool, an AC-3 stream (up to 5.1 channels) is created in real time and either written to a file or streamed to standard output.

When streamed to stdout and piped through the ALSA tool ac3dec -C, the AC-3 stream can be passed out the SPDIF port on your audio interface for connection to a multichannel surround receiver. In this way, you can achieve full 5.1 surround mixing and monitoring of your JACK applications with a single digital cable, and no need for hardware supporting discrete outputs and inputs.

AC-3 is a compressed audio stream, so quality will suffer somewhat, but it is the price you pay for easy surround sound. After all, if it is good enough for DVD and film soundtracks, it must be OK. The AC-3 encoder used here comes from the FFMPEG project, and I have not done any quality comparisons with commercial encoders. Zitat: JACK bitmeter is a diagnosis tool for JACK audio software on Linux (and perhaps other systems which have JACK and GTK+ 2.x). As its name might suggest, the bitmeter operates at the bare metal of JACK's I/O layer, looking at the 32 binary digits in each individual sample.

Think of bitmeter like the cable detector in your toolbox. You cannot use a cable detector to drive screws into wood, or to undo bolts, or measure the length of a copper pipe, but it's the perfect tool for detecting hidden cables in walls before you drill. You will rarely need bitmeter, in fact most JACK users will never use it at all, but having it and never needing it is much better than needing it and not having it. Zitat: jackEQ wll allow sound as rich and powerful as Jackie O, as street smart as Jackie Brown. Is jackEQ more than you can handle?

jackEQ is intended to provide an accessible method for tweaking the treble, mid and bass of any JACK aware applications output. Designed specifically for live performance, it is modelled on various DJ mixing consoles which the main author Patrick Shirkey has worked with live.

jackEQ is a tool for routing and manipulating audio from/to multiple input/output sources. It runs in the JACK Audio Connection Kit, and uses LADSPA for its backend DSP work, specifically the DJ EQ swh plugin created by Steve Harris, also one of jackEQ's major contributors along with Jack O'Quin who crafted the majority of the JACK ports menu code. Zitat: This is the webpage for a software meterbridge for the UNIX based JACK audio system.

It supports a number of different types of meter, rendered using the SDL library and user-editable pixmaps. Requirements Zitat: Ever struggled with a number of jack applications on your desktop everyone using its own master volume-fader but not one common place for all the volumes directly accessible?

The solution to your problem is JackMix, a mixer app for jack that looks exactly like the mixer you would use if you had to connect your analog equipment.

At least that is what it is supposed to be. For more info on the current and planned features visit JackMix:features. For more information about the concept and some internals of JackMix you should check JackMix:concept.

To see JackMix in action have a look at the JackMix:screenshots. If you just want to download and install it go to JackMix:download. There are even unstable daily snapshots available.

JackMix:links contains links to other jack-related apps and some audio-links. Zitat: jack_snapshot - a little tool for storing/restoring jack connection states. it does this by writing/reading the names of the connected ports into/from a simple textfile. and here is also one weakness: some jack clients don't use the same jack name on each run, but dynamically assign one (like meterbridge) but most of them can be told to use a specific name, so this isn't really a problem. at least not for me. some pattern matching might be added in the future. Patches happily accepted. Zitat: MadJACK is a MPEG Audio Deck for the Jack Audio Connection Kit with an OSC based control interface. It was written as a backend for DJ music playback and is released under the GPL license.

It aims to achieve the following:

  • Lightweight
  • Talk natively to JACK
  • Easy to script / remote control
  • High Quality audio
  • Skip free playback
  • Responsive / Low Latency
  • Reliable / Not Crash

It does not do the following:

  • Have pitch control on playback (yet!)
  • Decode metadata/ID3 tags
  • Queue up multiple tracks
  • Have playlists

In order to segue and cross-fade between tracks I have multiple copies of MadJACK running.

Zitat: NetJack - Jack Over The Net

Netjack is a Realtime Audio Transport over a generic IP Network. It is fully integrated into JACK.

When you transport Audio Signals over a Network, you will always have the problem, that two Computers are bound to two different Sample Clocks. The other Network Transports face the Problem of compensating for the drift between these Sample Clocks. This is very hard to do.

NetJack works around this problem, by syncing all Clients to one Soundcard. So there will be no resampling or glitches in the whole network. As long as there is no packet loss. Packet loss can not be compensated.

Zitat: Qjackctl is a simple Qt application to control the JACK sound server daemon, specific for the Linux Audio Desktop infrastructure.

Written in C++ around the Qt3 toolkit for X11, most exclusively using Qt Designer.

Provides a simple GUI dialog for setting several JACK daemon parameters, which are properly saved between sessions, and a way control of the status of the audio server daemon. With time, this primordial interface has become richer by including a enhanced patchbay and connection control features. Zitat: qjackLaM is a Latency Meter for jack. There are 2 JackClients now: 1 only outputs, the other only reveives. This should cause 0 impact on Jacks graphordering concerning the other clients.



Schism Tracker is a music editor that aims to match the look and feel of Impulse Tracker as closely as possible. The player code is based on Modplug, so it supports a wide variety of module formats. Ein rpm-Paket für SuSE 10.1 findet man hier:


Beast is a powerful music composition and modular synthesis application released as free software under the GNU GPL and GNU LGPL, that runs under unix. It supports a wide range of standards in the field, such as MIDI, WAV/AIFF/MP3/OggVorbis/etc audio files and LADSPA modules. It has excellent technical abilities like multitrack editing, unlimited undo/redo support, real-time synthesis support, 32bit audio rendering, full duplex support, multiprocessor support, precise timing down to sample granularity, on demand and partial loading of wave files, on the fly decoding, stereo mixing, FFT scopes, MIDI automation and full scriptability in scheme. The plugins, synthesis core and the user interface are actively being developed and translated into a variety of languages, regularly assimilating user feedback such as from our FeatureRequests page.

Here is an extensive screenshots page, showing beast in action.

BEAST is an abbreviation for Bedevilled Audio System. BSE an abbreviation for Bedevilled Sound Engine, it implements all the neccessary music processing logic required by BEAST in a seperate reusable library. The "Bedevilled" portion of the names has no religious background, but merely refers to the complexity involved implementing such a "BEAST" (pun intended ;).

Gnaural is a multi-platform programmable binaural-beat generator, implementing the principles described in the October 1973 Scientific American article "Auditory Beats in the Brain" (Gerald Oster). There has been considerable research done on the subject since that publication, and Gnaural's Windows-based predecessor, WinAural, has been used as the audio stimulus in at least one published study, "The Induced Rhythmic Oscillations of Neural Activity in the Human Brain", D. Cvetkovic, D. Djuwari, I. Cosic (Australia), from Proceeding (417) Biomedical Engineering - 2004.

The central finding of Oster's article: brain activity can be entrained to the auditory beat frequencies created when each ear is presented simultaneously with tones of slightly different frequency. My interest has been exploring how this effect (known as "frequency following response" or "brainwave entrainment") can be used to explore mental states, ranging from profoundly meditative to highly alert. Frinika:

Frinika is an open source (GPL), complete music workstation software for Linux, Windows, Mac OSX Tiger and other operating systems running Java 1.5 (J2SE5.0). It features sequencer, soft-synths, realtime effects and audio recording.

Frinika is compact, self-contained and simple - yet powerful enough to boost your musical creativity. 2006-06-25 Proudly presenting Frinika-0.2.0 - a major upgrade now making Frinika a true hybrid of modern sequencing and Amiga-soundtracker style tracking. Highlights of this release are: Partview - piano roll and support for external mididevices.
