DX7-Supercollider - My accurate Yamaha DX-7 clone. Programmed in Supercollider.

  •    SuperCollider

You don't need to open the DX7.afx file. It just needs to be in the same directory as the DX7.scd. Just open the DX7.scd in Supercollider and run the big chunk of code starting from the line 35 and it's ready to use. Then run the mainCaller functions for new notes and to close notes send zero velocity from the mainCaller functions. The only requirement is to install the SC3-Plugins Ugen library because I use the Ugen at the heart of all operation.

pyo - Python DSP module -

  •    C

pyo is a Python module written in C to help digital signal processing script creation. pyo is a Python module containing classes for a wide variety of audio signal processing types. With pyo, user will be able to include signal processing chains directly in Python scripts or projects, and to manipulate them in real time through the interpreter. Tools in pyo module offer primitives, like mathematical operations on audio signal, basic signal processing (filters, delays, synthesis generators, etc.), but also complex algorithms to create sound granulation and others creative audio manipulations. pyo supports OSC protocol (Open Sound Control), to ease communications between softwares, and MIDI protocol, for generating sound events and controlling process parameters. pyo allows creation of sophisticated signal processing chains with all the benefits of a mature, and widely used, general programming language.

Flocking - Flocking - Creative audio synthesis for the Web

  •    Javascript

Flocking is a JavaScript audio synthesis framework designed for artists and musicians who are building creative and experimental Web-based sound projects. It supports Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Node.js on Mac OS X, Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android. Unlike comparable tools, Flocking is declarative. Its goal is to promote a uniquely community-minded approach to instrument design and composition. In Flocking, unit generators and synths are specified as JSON, making it easy to save, share, and manipulate your synthesis algorithms. Send your synths via Ajax, save them for later using HTML5 local data storage, or algorithmically produce new instruments on the fly.

essentia - C++ library for audio and music analysis, description and synthesis, including Python bindings

  •    Jupyter

Essentia is an open-source C++ library for audio analysis and audio-based music information retrieval released under the Affero GPL license. It contains an extensive collection of reusable algorithms which implement audio input/output functionality, standard digital signal processing blocks, statistical characterization of data, and a large set of spectral, temporal, tonal and high-level music descriptors. The library is also wrapped in Python and includes a number of predefined executable extractors for the available music descriptors, which facilitates its use for fast prototyping and allows setting up research experiments very rapidly. Furthermore, it includes a Vamp plugin to be used with Sonic Visualiser for visualization purposes. Essentia is designed with a focus on the robustness of the provided music descriptors and is optimized in terms of the computational cost of the algorithms. The provided functionality, specifically the music descriptors included in-the-box and signal processing algorithms, is easily expandable and allows for both research experiments and development of large-scale industrial applications. If you use example extractors (located in src/examples), or your own code employing Essentia algorithms to compute descriptors, you should be aware of possible incompatibilities when using different versions of Essentia.

gibberish - Fast, JavaScript DSP library that creates JIT optimized audio callbacks using code generation techniques

  •    Javascript

Gibberish is designed to be a fast audio API for the browser. It takes the low-level building blocks provided by genish.js and uses them to create higher-level synthesizers, effects, and sequencers. Gibberish proceses each sample of each synthesis block one sample at a time, enabling a variety of effects not typically possible in browser-based synthesis systems, most importantly single-sample feedback loops and audio-rate modulation of scheduling. Note that this branch is for version 3 of the library. See the master branch for the pre-June 2017 version that is currently used in Gibber. There is also a tagged release of the older version (2.0.0).
