  • Schism Tracker

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Haiku Website

    Schism Tracker is a free reimplementation of Impulse Tracker, a program used to create high quality music without the requirements of specialized, expensive equipment, and with a unique "finger feel" that is difficult to replicate in part. The player is based on a highly modified version of the Modplug engine, with a number of bugfixes and changes to improve IT playback.

    Where Impulse Tracker was limited to i386-based systems running MS-DOS, Schism Tracker runs on almost any platform that SDL supports, and has been successfully built for Linux, Mac OS X, Windows, FreeBSD, AmigaOS, BeOS, and even the Wii. Most development is currently done on i686 Linux. Schism will most likely build on any architecture supported by GCC4 (e.g. alpha, m68k, arm, etc.) but it will probably not be as well-optimized on many systems.

    This is a crossplatform C64 music editor. Supports output via Dag Lem's reSID engine, the HardSID 4U USB device & HardSID soundcards or CatWeasel MK3.

    From V2.0 onwards the editor includes more powerful step-programming (wave/arpeggio, pulse and filter), 63 instruments, more instrument parameters & pattern commands. May be less userfriendly than V1.xx, but you can import V1.xx songs and instruments to see how the corresponding V2 features work. Rastertime usage has stayed about the same. Also available in stereo.

  • ChibiTracker

    Free Mac Windows Linux Website

    ChibiTracker is not currently in development but downloads are still available from Freecode (http://freecode.com/projects/chibitracker ) & Small SourceForge iconSourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/chibitracker.berlios ).

    ChibiTracker is a portable IT (Impulse Tracker) clone. It is not a 100% clone though, as it adds more features, such as chorus and reverb, stereo samples, an advanced sample editor and more. The user interface also presents some changes, as it can be custom themed and resized.
    For those who haven't used trackers before, ChibiTracker is a small, compact music composing application that is easy to learn and powerful enough to sound good.

  • Bosca Ceoil

    Free Mac Windows Linux Adobe AIR Website

    Bosca Ceoil is all about looping, and designed that way at its heart. Songs are built up from lots of tiny 16 note patterns – the intended workflow is that you loop over these single patterns until you have something you like, then you start making variations. If you approach it this way, you’ll find it’s pretty decent at doing that – but it’s not very good at other things, like say, long melody lines. It is what it is! I made it for myself, and the way I work, but hopefully some of you out there will find it useful too. It’s free, and open source under the FreeBSD licence. If anyone wants to port it/fork it, go for it!

  • Carla

    Free Mac Windows Linux BSD Website

    Carla is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats. It has some nice features like automation of parameters via MIDI CC (and send output back as MIDI too) and full OSC control.

    Carla currently supports LADSPA (including LRDF), DSSI, LV2, VST2/3 and AU plugin formats, plus GIG, SF2 and SFZ file support. It uses JACK as the default and preferred audio driver but also supports native drivers like ALSA, DirectSound or CoreAudio.

    There are 4 types of engine processing:

    Single-client: (JACK driver only) Same as Multi-client, except that all JACK ports belong to a single master client. This is needed when a setup doesn't support multi-client JACK apps, such as LADISH. Multi-client: (JACK driver only) Every single plugin is exposed as a new JACK client. Audio and MIDI ports are registered as needed. Rack: Plugins are processed in order, from top to bottom. Plugins with non-stereo audio channels are not supported, but a forced-stereo option is available for Mono ones. Patchbay: Modular patchbay mode, just like in JACK Multi-client and many other modular applications. Every plugin gets its own canvas group and ports allowing you to interconnect plugin audio and MIDI.
