Music/Sound Related Libraries/Components

Just that I will remember these:

  • Alexandria Media Library is a loosely coupled suite of media applications written in C#. The architectue of Alexandria allows plugins to be designed to perform any function imaginable and then integrate these with the existing plugins to provide a full application. Plugins exist for: media playback, playlists, tagging with metadata, search for media and metadata, etc.
  • FMOD with FMOD Ex Programming API is a revolutionary multiplatform new audio engine featuring e.g. fantastic sounding DSP audio engine, choice of low-level or data-driven API, built-in DSP effect suite and VST support, as well as advanced features such as 2D/3D morphing, 3D reverb support and geometric occlusion, etc.
  • MusicDNS by MusicIP provides a method for acoustically identifying digital music and acquiring the correct metadata. MusicDNS consistently identifies the same digital music recording, regardless language or audio file format. Track level fingerprints are finely tuned for accurate matching, and eliminate the cost and challenges of legacy CD data. The database is kept current as new albums are released. Sounds cool!
  • MusicBrainz is a community music metadatabase that attempts to create a comprehensive music information site. You can use the MusicBrainz data either by browsing this web site, or you can access the data from a client program — for example, a CD player program can use MusicBrainz to identify CDs and provide information about the CD, about the artist or about related information. You can also use the MusicBrainz Tagger to automatically identify and clean up the metadata tags in your digital music collections.
