- Abc2ps is a typesetting program for ABC, a code for typsetting music that uses standard ASCII characters. It reads a file containing abc code and outputs the music to another file in Postscript. The music can then displayed (i.e. using ghostview) or printed on a Postscript printer.
- abcm2ps is a package that converts music tunes from ABC format to PostScript. Based on abc2ps version 1.2.5, it was developed mainly to print baroque organ scores that have independant voices played on one or more keyboards, and a pedal-board. It introduces many extensions to the ABC language that make it suitable for classical music.
- 'abcpp' is a simple yet powerful preprocessor designed for, but not limited to, ABC music files. It provides conditional output, macros, symbol renaming, and file inclusion. It was written to overcome incompatibilities between ABC packages, and to facilitate writing portable, and more readable ABC files.
- 'abcsh', still in the planning stages, will be a shell for processing ABC music notation files. It could form the foundation of a larger system for music composition and orchestration using ABC music notation as a means of representing musical performance. The shell hopes to handle routine ABC transformation like part extraction, transposition, part merging etc. It will also be designed so that you can access the ABC notation file content from embedded scripting languages. It supports ABC music notation version 2.0. This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.
- 'amber' aims to be an easy-to-use granular synthesis tool for GNU/Linux to assist composers and electronic musicians in creating interesting and complex sounds. More information on the theory and application of granular synthesis techniques can be found at http://shoko.calarts.edu/~eric/gs.html.
- Aria Maestosa
- Compose, edit, and play MIDI files. Has a graphical user interface with multiple instrument-specific views.
- BEAST BSE
- 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 ;).
- 'bpmdj' (beats per minute DJ) is a set of free DJ'ing tools. The first is a very accurate BPM measurement tool. The second is a player which changes the tempo of music. It also allows for nudging, forward and backward movement by measures, and other nice things.
- 'DansTuner' tells you if you are playing a pitch in tune. Its features include:
*automatic discovery of which note you are trying to play (good for trumpet, singer, etc.) *ability to play a guide tone for you at a configurable volume *a graphical moving "needle", a red/green display, and details about how flat or sharp you are *an easily configurable background noise threshold
This package was written by a trumpet player, who needed to tune lots of different notes on the fly. Many of the free packages out there are "guitar" tuners that must first be told which few notes you are trying to tune.
- Denemo is a music notation program (scorewriter) for GNU/Linux and Windows that lets you rapidly enter notation for typesetting via the LilyPond music engraver. Music can be typed in at the PC-Keyboard, or played into a microphone plugged into your computer's soundcard. Denemo itself does not engrave the music - it uses LilyPond which generates beautiful sheet music to the highest publishing standards. Denemo just displays the music so you can enter and edit the music efficiently.
