Free research tools and resources provided by CIRMMT members for use by other members and the general public.
The SUPERMAn Tool
The SRMR Toolbox
The Timbre Toolbox
The Timbre Toolbox provides a set of audio descriptors that are related to timbre perception in a Matlab toolbox. It has been developed over the years by researchers at CIRMMT and at IRCAM in Paris.
RtFFT is a realtime spectrum analyzer:
The Sonic Mapper
The Sonic Mapper is a program for sound similarity analysis:
The Synthesis ToolKit (STK)
C++ classes for music and audio programming:
C++ classes for realtime MIDI programming:
Mappingtools is a processing library for texture mapping. It is a set of classes that facilitates texture mapping on straight or curved surfaces. The library was developed by CIRMMT members Patrick Saint-Denis and Jean Piché at iACT's facilities (Université de Montréal).
This library is a system for representing input and output signals on a network and allowing arbitrary “mappings” to be dynamically created between them.
Digital Orchestra Toolbox (DOT)
This toolbox is a collection of Max/MSP objects and abstractions useful for creating gesture processing patches for digital musical instruments. Each patch is accompanied by a help patch to demonstrate its use.
DIMPLE: Dynamically Interactive Musically PhysicaL Environment
An implementation of a physical dynamics environment which can be controlled via Open Sound Control (OSC), so that audio projects such as PureData can create physical objects in a virtual space, and then let them interact with each other, colliding and otherwise moving around. Data about objects' position and acceleration, for example, can be retrieved and then used to control parameters of audio synthesis.
jMIR is an open-source Java software suitefor use in music information retrieval (MIR) research. It can be used to study music in both audio and symbolic formats, as well as mine cultural information from the web and manage music collections. jMIR includes software for extracting features, applying machine learning algorithms, mining metadata and analyzing metadata.
Octogris is a sound spatializer that works up to 32 sources -> 32 speakers, but it was primarly designed to make octophony with visual feedback and many different movement modes. It is for Mac only - distributed as a cocoa AudioUnit. It has been tested with Digital Performer, Logic and Reaper. It works in OSX 10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard).
