Polymeter music sequencer
Polymeter is a MIDI sequencer for music that's in multiple prime meters (1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, etc.) simultaneously. Each track has its own loop length, and when the lengths differ, the tracks "slip" (or shift phase) relative to each other. The resulting interference pattern is sufficiently intricate that variations similar to the embellishments of a live performer can be generated algorithmically. The current project is based on software I developed in the 1990s in order to compose polymeter-based electronic dance music. I'm rescuing from bit rot what might be (for all I know) the world's only sequencer optimized for polymeter. It's a long battle, but it's worth it to be able to compose complex polymeter again.

a bit-perfect audio editor that doesn't modify samples needlessly
WaveShop is an audio editor for Windows XP/Vista/7/8. Unlike many similar apps, WaveShop is bit-perfect, meaning samples aren't altered unless they need to be. Editing a portion of an audio file only affects that portion; the rest of the file is untouched. Blocks of audio can be cut and pasted without changing their contents at all. This is especially useful for patching a finished master without corrupting its dither.
