- Audio Space
- AudioSpace calculates the amount of storage required by an audio recording of a given duration, for different sampling rates, resolutions, and numbers of channels. The calculation may be made for uncompressed audio data or for several types of compression. A variety of units may be selected for reporting the result. The calculation may also be made in the opposite direction so as to determine how long a recording will fit into the available space.
- Audio Utils
- A collection of bash and perl scripts that help convert audio files.
- aac2ogg - a quick and dirty AAC to OGG Vorbis converter.
- wma2ogg - simple bash script that uses mplayer to convert ugly WMA files to OGG Vorbis.
- reencode - a simple bash script that lets you re-encode MP3 files to higher/lower bitrates. Useful when the resulting MP3 file is going to be on a low-memory device (ie. "MP3" players).
- Audio codec 2
- 'Audio codec' is part of the LAME project, which is the source code for a fully GPL'd MP3 encoder. The project's goal is to improve the psychoacoustics, noise shaping and speed of MP3.
- audio convert is a script that converts between WAV, Ogg, MP3, MPC, FLAC, APE, and WMA files. It has an easy-to-use interface that makes it possible to fill in the tags for a few formats and choose the quality of compression. The script was initially designed for the Nautilus file browser and can be easily installed into Nautilus by copying it to the nautilus-scripts directory. You can then right-click on files and choose "audio-convert" from the "scripts" menu. The script is also known to work on rox or directly from a shell.
- 'autorun' automagically recognizes all available CDROMs in the system, mounts them upon insertion of a media and executes a possible autorun executable on the CD. The user can remove the media; autorun will call unmount after that.
- 'bchunk' converts CD images in the raw BIN/CUE format to a set of tracks in ISO 9660 format, which can be then written on a CD-R using cdrecord. Audio tracks are written in CDR (native CD audio) or WAV format.
- Bestfit is a small program to determine which files that should be put on a CD (or other media), so that as little space as possible is wasted. It is very easy to use: you specify files on the command line, and bestfit prints the names of those that were selected. Alternatively, bestfit can execute a command for each selected file (eg. to move them to a different directory).
- 'Biblos' is a powerful indexing tool for managing a cd/mp3 collection as well as local directories. It records full information about each file on the specified media and has a powerful searching tool that can help you find specific files. You can also select a list of files/dirs from the database and Biblos will help you copy them from the source media to the directory choosen.
- BlueSpice extends MediaWiki and enhances it with useful features, in particular in the areas of quality management, process support, administration, editing and security. There are two editions available: BlueSpice free and BlueSpice pro. BlueSpice free is a free of charge wiki version. BlueSpice pro is the business-critical solution with comprehensive functionalities and a subscription for support and software maintenance.
- BoPHP is a Web interface for Boss Ogg. It plays Ogg Vorbis, MP3, and Flac files, and transparently uses SQLite as a database backend. Its artist/album/song scheme is particularly useful for large collections. It has a powerful import system based on filename and/or tags, and uses libao for output. The package currently supports OSS, Alsa, esd, arts, and others. Clients communicate via a powerful XML-RPC interface. Queue size is unlimited, and users can select what happens to the queue when it's empty or finished.
