  • olive

    Free open-source non-linear video editor

    Project mention: Olive keeps crashing when trying to make a proxy? | /r/olive | 2023-07-10

    We need more detail. What OS you are using what olive version (exactly up to commit number). You should make an issue heere: https://github.com/olive-editor/olive/issues

  • JUCE

    JUCE is an open-source cross-platform C++ application framework for desktop and mobile applications, including VST, VST3, AU, AUv3, LV2 and AAX audio plug-ins.

    Project mention: What programming languages do you recommend starting with regarding audio visual programming/audio software development? | /r/DSP | 2023-06-16

    Respect for the others here who recommend C but I think they’re possibly masochists. If anything JUCE, which uses C++ is in my opinion far more approachable.

  • ardour

    Mirror of Ardour Source Code

    Project mention: Red Blob Games: Interactive visual explanations of math and algorithms | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-29

    One extra detail, something I've learned from 20 years of working on dragging all kinds of objects around the GUI of Ardour [0]: handle ALL button press and release events as drag events where there is no movement.

  • helio-workstation

    One music sequencer for all major platforms, desktop and mobile

    Project mention: MIDI editor for Linux? | /r/linuxaudio | 2022-11-12

    Not really a DAW (more towards a sequencer), and haven't used this software for a year+ to comment on its current state but we have Helio Workstation.

  • dexed

    DX7 FM multi plaform/multi format plugin

    Project mention: Anyone have luck using the Roland UM-ONE MK2 between Dexed and their DX7? My UM-ONE will only send to DX7 with Midi-OX. | /r/synthesizers | 2022-10-31

    Did you already find https://github.com/asb2m10/dexed/wiki/Dexed-as-a-DX7-editor ?

  • yabridge

    A modern and transparent way to use Windows VST2, VST3 and CLAP plugins on Linux

    Project mention: What Is the Future of the DAW? | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-30

    If you use the Linux port, you may want to use Yabridge to load Windows VSTs in a transparent way.



  • sonobus

    Source code for SonoBus, a real-time network audio streaming collaboration tool.

    Project mention: [LFG] Looking for older amateur/beginners in Europe for stoner rock | /r/BedroomBands | 2023-06-24

    Our collaboration software might look something like Sonobus and vdo.ninja for live jamming (if we're close enough), Discord or Whatsapp for chatting, maybe Area for reviewing mix-downs, and Bandlab for stem-sharing (Reaper too, if you've got it). I'm open to all suggestions. I'm also interested in learning how to use something like Sonic Sound Picture to do visualisations, or maybe creating AI generated animations, if deciding to upload anything to YT.

  • NeuralNote

    Audio Plugin for Audio to MIDI transcription using deep learning.

    Project mention: Is it possible to view the notes of an instrument loop? | /r/Bandlab | 2023-07-10

    There's this https://basicpitch.spotify.com/ and this https://github.com/DamRsn/NeuralNote which work well and are free, but aren't perfect. There's others too (search for polyphonic pitch to midi converter)

    Happy to introduce you to https://ossia.io there are a lots of tasks open! You can check the projects for the general development axes: https://github.com/ossia/score/projects?query=is%3Aopen ; e.g. Audio, Musicality, Integrations, JACK & Linux integration (some are in Classic projects mode) all have audio-related tasks, some easy, some hard.

    Creating new Avendish plug-ins (docs: https://celtera.github.io/avendish/) could also be fairly useful, here's a very basic example one: https://github.com/celtera/avendish/blob/main/examples/Advan...
