Free digital sound workstation for Unix-like systems

The GNU Octal project aims to build a set of portable, efficient, and free components which work together as a digital sound workstation for GNU-Linux and other Unix systems. The system contains a number of well-established ideas from sound systems programming, including matrix-based sequencing, unit generators, software synthesis and sampling, block oriented computation, and a graphical workspace.
