Linux Audio Development  [hits=31 votes=1 rating=5.0] : Linux Audio Development - Home - The LAD mailing list is dedicated to sound architecture and application development for the Linux Operating System. It offers resources on latency, API design and all kinds of audio-related information. With its proven stability and scalability, Linux is a perfect foundation for the handling and processing of large amounts of audio data. Our goal is to encourage widespread code re-use and cooperation, and to provide a common forum for all audio related software projects and an exchange point for a number of other special-interest mailing lists.

Music Kit  [hits=1 votes=1 rating=5.0] : The MusicKit V5.4 - The MusicKit is an object-oriented open-source software system for building music, sound, signal processing, and MIDI applications. It has been used in such diverse commercial applications as music sequencers, computer games, and document processors. Professors and students in academia have used the MusicKit in a host of areas, including music performance, scientific experiments, computer-aided instruction, and physical modeling. The MusicKit was the first to unify the MIDI and Music V paradigms, thus combining interaction with generality. (Music V, written by Max Mathews and others at Bell Labs three decades ago, was the first widely available "computer music compiler".)
