Music Composer - AMUC

Amuc is a Linux application for composing and playing music.

Amuc is written in C++. It is a lightweight application, not needing a GUI toolkit or a non-standard library (needed: X11, alsa, xft, cairo). Speedy operation: maybe this is the fastest tool to explore musical ideas and to create a complete piece of music.



It works like this:
  * Tune fragments are entered graphically. These are combined into a complete tune by means of a script file.
  * Five-bar staff or piano roll display.
  * For the composer there is help available with scales and chords.
  * Tunes can be exported as WAVE or MIDI files, or as human-readable scores in postscript format.
  * MIDI files can be imported.
  * WAVE files can be read and transformed to notes.
  * Samples (e.g. for percussion instruments) can be read from WAVE files.
  * Support for USB keyboard.
  * Interface with Jack (the Jack Audio Connection Kit).

For more information on how to use the software, please refer to manual - here
