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).
