Cadence is a set of tools useful for audio production.
This is the main app. It performs system checks, manages JACK, calls other tools and make system tweaks.
(Most of the tools below are part of the Cadence suite).


Cadence-JackMeter is a digital peak meter for JACK.
It automatically connects itself to all application JACK output ports that are also connected to the system output.


Cadence-JackSettings is a simple and easy-to-use configure dialog for jackdbus.
It can configure JACK's driver and engine parameters, and it also supports LADISH studios.


Cadence-Logs is a small tool that shows JACK, A2J, LASH and LADISH logs in a multi-tab window.
This is very similar to the the 'ladilog' app but here the logs are viewed in a text box, making it easy to browse and extract status messages using copy and paste commands.


Cadence-Render is a tool to record (or 'render') a JACK project using jack-capture, controlled by JACK Transport.
It supports a vast number of file types and can render in both realtime and freewheel modes.


Cadence-XY Controller
Cadence-XY Controller is a simple XY widget that sends and receives data from Jack MIDI.
It can send data through specific channels and has a MIDI Keyboard too.


Catarina is a Patchbay test app, created while the PatchCanvas module was being developed.
It allows the user to experiment with the patchbay, without using ALSA, JACK or LADISH.
You can save & load patchbay configurations too.


Catia is a JACK Patchbay, with some neat features like A2J bridge support and JACK Transport.
It's supposed to be as simple as possible (there's Claudia for advanced things), so it can work nicely on non-Linux platforms.


Claudia is a LADISH frontend; it's just like Catia, but focused at session management through LADISH.
It has a bit more features than the official LADISH GUI, with a nice preview of the main canvas in the bottom-left.
It also implements the 'Claudia-Launcher' add-application style for LADISH.


Claudia-Launcher is a multimedia application launcher with LADISH support.
It searches for installed packages (not binaries), and displays the respective content as a launcher.
The content is got through an hardcoded database, created and/or modified to suit the target distribution.


Carla is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.
It has some nice features like automation of parameters via MIDI CC and full OSC control.
Currently supports LADSPA, DSSI, LV2, VST2/3 and AU plugin formats, plus GIG, SF2 and SFZ sounds banks.
