A high quality MP3 encoder
LAME is an educational tool to be used for learning about MP3 encoding. The goal of the LAME project is to improve the psycho acoustics, quality and speed of MP3 encoding. Note: we provide source code only!
Analyzes and adjusts the volume of MP3 files
MP3Gain analyzes and losslessly adjusts mp3 files to a specified target volume. It does not simply do peak amplitude normalization. Instead, it performs statistical analysis to determine how loud the file actually sounds to the human ear.

A symbolic framework for C++, Python and Octave implementing automatic differentiation by source code transformation in forward and reverse modes on sparse matrix-valued computational graphs.
A C++ framework that implements generalised finite state machines.
The State Controller Library is a generic platform-independent C++ framework that allows finite state machines and multi-action planning generalisations thereof to be realised. The structure and implementation of this library focuses on the application of finite state machines to real-time control loops, but can be reasonably adapted for virtually any other application, even completely unrelated to control systems. An emphasis has been placed on having very low overhead so as not to hurt...
Library for working with 3D rotations in C++
The Rotations Conversion Library (RCL) is a collection of C++ functions that address common computations and numerical handling of rotations in 3D Euclidean space, including support for rotation matrices (`Rotmat`), Quaternions (`Quat`), intrinsic ZYX Euler angles (`Euler`), fused angles (`Fused`) and tilt angles (`Tilt`). In addition to the core competency of being able to convert between each of the representations, operations such as inversion, ZYX yaw extraction, fused yaw extraction...
