Surfing The Forge: Sound & MIDI Projects On SourceForge

Filed under
Software

When I began collecting links for the Linux Sound & Music Applications pages I frequented a variety of announcement and news services. Some of those services are no longer with us, some have been superceded by more comprehensive and modern channels, and a few have remained as primary sources for new and updated Linux audio software. SourceForge is one of those long-lived services that have remained relevant to my searches for new and interesting sound and music applications, so I decided to surf the Forge to find recent and maybe some not-so-recent developments in the world of Linux audio.

MidiRandomizer
Nathaniel Roe's MidiRandomizer (Figure 1) is a neat Java-based utility for the production of musical phrases through a weighted selection of parameter values for pitches and rhythms. The generated phrases can be exported as standard MIDI files and/or as TiMidity-compatible PAT files, and favorite arrangements of randomization factors can be saved for later invocation.

Fx FloorBoards
When I saw the screenshots for Colin Willcocks' Fx Floorboards software I was impressed by the eye-candy (Figure 2), but as I delved further into the project I realized that I'd somehow overlooked some amazing software. Colin has designed a series of programs for editing the Boss GT processors, a line of multi-effects pedalboards for guitarists.

Creating a Unified Ubuntu Experience

On it's own, Ubuntu is a solid desktop Linux experience. It offers ample application choices and it's easy to use. But one area I would like to see greater focus is mirroring one desktop to another. That is, being able to find the same documents and other files I use on both desktop machines. In this article I'll explore options I've found useful in creating a unified Ubuntu Experience.
