6 Open Source Software Projects of (Musical) Notation As it's been pointed out before, there seems to be a sizable overlap between open source hardware and software enthusiasts and amateur musicians. And while some of you are making music through the tried-and-true "let's see what that button does" method, there are a few of you who might be interested in composing music the old-fashioned way -- digitally producing paper-based music sheets. Whether you're writing music for the guitar, learning how to improvise jazz solos, or writing entire music scores, chances are that one of the pieces of open source software listed below can make the process a little easier.

Confounded Technology: Ubuntu 12.04 & iOS6 AirPrint without a true AirPrint compatible device (Update) This is an update of my previous AirPrint escapade to get AirPrint working with Ubuntu 12.04 and iOS6.0 using non AirPrint printers. I'm still using the Epson SX600FW and SX610FW family which have both been great to date, I spent an hour updating the config to allow AirPrint compatibility on this new setup. Read on... Setup
How-To: Easily Remove the Vocals from Most Songs 2015 Shortcut: When I wrote this article Audacity didn’t have an automatic center-panned vocal canceling effect… but now it does, so rather than do the stereo-separate / invert-one-track / play-both-as-mono trick (and that’s pretty much all there is to it), you should be able to find the Vocal Remover option in the Effects menu – but it’s more fun / interesting and can give better results if you do it yourself! =D I found this trick the other day whilst stumbling the Interwebs and thought I’d do a quick-write up w/ pictures to make it as easy as possible… For this exercise we’re going to be using a piece of free audio software called Audacity, which you can get for Linux, Windows and Mac. Update: If you’re trying this out on a Mac, please make sure you get Audacity 1.3 Beta or newer – the stable 1.2 version appears to have a missing equaliser decibal-range slider which you need towards the end of the process! 1.)

Cockos Incorporated LICEcapsimple animated screen captures LICEcap can capture an area of your desktop and save it directly to .GIF (for viewing in web browsers, etc) or .LCF (see below). LICEcap is an intuitive but flexible application (for Windows and now OSX), that is designed to be lightweight and function with high performance. LICEcap is easy to use: view a demo (output is here). In addition to .GIF, LICEcap supports its own native lossless .LCF file format, which allows for higher compression ratios than .GIF, higher quality (more than 256 colors per frame), and more accurate timestamping.
Sight-reading Caravaggio's Rest on the Flight into Egypt (1594–96) Terminology Sight-reading Authors in music literature commonly use the term "sight-reading" generically for "the ability to read and produce both instrumental and vocal music at first sight ... the conversion of musical information from sight to sound" (Udtaisuk 2005). Udtaisuk and some other authors prefer the use of the more specific terms "sight-playing" and "sight-singing" where applicable. This differentiation leaves a third more restricted use of the term "sight-reading" for the silent reading of music without creating sound by instrument or voice. Single Machine Guide - DevStack Use the cloud to build the cloud! Use your cloud to launch new versions of OpenStack in about 5 minutes. When you break it, start over! The VMs launched in the cloud will be slow as they are running in QEMU (emulation), but their primary use is testing OpenStack development and operation.

protrekkr - Tracker program to create electronic music (like psytrance, trance goa, hard acid, IDM, chip, techno, etc.) for small sized intros, demos or games. ProTrekkr (formerly known as NoiseTrekker by Juan Antonio Arguelles Rius aka Arguru) is a tracker program combining a software synthesizer together with a traditional samples tracker which can be used to create electronic music (like psytrance, trance goa, hard acid, IDM, chip, techno, etc.) for small sized intros, demos or games. Currently the tracker is available on Windows, Linux, Amiga OS4, AROS and Mac OSX. Check for more infos. Note that if you feel like submitting (good) modules for showcasing or to help me testing the tracker, you can drop me a mail at:
