Kokkini Zita - Linux Audio Libzita-resampler is a C++ library for resampling audio signals. It is designed to be used within a real-time processing context, to be fast, and to provide high-quality sample rate conversion. The library operates on signals represented in single-precision floating point format. For multichannel operation both the input and output signals are assumed to be stored as interleaved samples. The API allows a trade-off between quality and CPU load. For the latter a range of approximately 1:6 is available. The source distribution includes the resample application.

Open Source Replacements: Animation to Audio Mixing People are using digital devices to create and consume audio – and audio and video – more often than ever before. And that trend seems likely to continue. Consider that, according to Adobe, the number of online videos viewed per visitor on smartphones climbed 22 percent between 2014 and 2015. And Netflix now boasts 69 million subscribers - with many people watching on their Netflix mobile app. In keeping with these trends, the open source community has created a multitude of tools for working with AV files. For this list, we’ve focused on tools for animation, audio players, audio recorders and editors, audio conversion applications, and live audio mixing. Animation 1.

‘Bertie’s Children’: what the 18-year-olds of Ireland think Born into the boom but plunged into an economic bust during their teenage years, Ireland’s 18-year-olds will be able to vote in a general election for the first time in the coming weeks. They do so against the backdrop of a recovering economy. They could be termed Bertie’s Children, born in 1997, the year the former taoiseach took office and the beginning of a 14-year period of Fianna Fáil-led governments. Until they were 10 they lived in a country of plenty. But after the devastating crash and the international bailout many families experienced financial stress and hardship. The Irish Times has sought the opinions of eight young men and women born in 1997, from a variety of backgrounds and from across Ireland. Richard Layte, professor of sociology at Trinity College Dublin, is a director of the Growing Up in Ireland study, which the Government has commissioned to follow the lives of a group of children and their families for several years. What do you remember about the boom?
