Where do I find (insert software here)?
« on: April 01, 2006, 03:22:23 PM »
Recently I have seen a few threads where people want to know where to get certain pieces of software.

Here are a few to start with, others can add to it as they see fit.
(moderators, can we pin this thread)?

Audacity (opens source multichannel audio software) -- Mac & XP
http://audacity.sourceforge.net/

Fostex BWF Manager (for splitting Poly Broadcast WAVE Files) -- Mac & XP
http://www.fostexinternational.com/docs/pro_support/pro_bwf_manager.shtml

xACT Utility (for FLAC, Shorten, APE, and other compression options) -- Mac
http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21952

Transmission (BitTorrent Client) -- Mac
http://transmission.m0k.org/

Azureus (BitTorrent Client) -- Mac & XP
http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

(add more as you like)

Good idea.  here's a few links that I've given out to folks recently...

FLAC Frontend - Windows
http://mikewren.com/page.php?2

xACT - Windows
http://199.224.117.240/~scb/index.php?path=xactwin/

CD Wave - windows
http://www.milosoftware.com/cdwave/

Edit by BSkalinder:  Just a reminder about CD-Wave's license:

I think this is part of the reason many people haven't purchased their CD-Wave license (and one of the reasons I started this thread):  misunderstanding of the license requirements.  Purchasing a license if using the program beyond the 31-day trial period is not voluntary - it's compulsory to satisfy the terms of the license.  The author simply chose not to implement software mechanisms (like crippling the software after 31-days, or providing a limited-functionality demo) to compel people to purchase the license.  Nonetheless, users are obligated to purchase the license if they continue to use the software beyond the trial period.

MakeTorrent
Simple utility for creating torrents.

ABC (Yet Another Bittorrent Client)
Easy to use, multi-torrent capable, relatively low PC resource bittorrent client.

Foobar2000
Excellent freeware for music playback on PC.  Highly configurable.

dBpowerAMP Music Converter
Freeware (I think) music file type converter and CD ripper.  Great way to batch convert across a huge variety of music file types:  MP3, FLAC, SHN, OGG, etc.  Power Pack and MP3 Encoder requires license ($).  The dBpowerAMP family of apps also includes:  CD Writer, Audio Player, Sveta Portable Audio.

Exact Audio Copy
Excellent CD ripping app.

GuildFTP
Freeware FTP daemon for running your own FTP server.

SmartFTP
Nice freeware FTP client.

Filezilla
Another nice freeware FTP client.

THE Rename
Powerful app for batch processing file name and attribute changes.

for those file renaming programs...do those change the tags, or the actual names of the files themselves.  I could use one of those.

i like how the one on 1-4a has a stardate option, haha.

I've not used the feature, but it looks like THE Rename allows editing and exporting of various tags (MP3, OGG, WAV, etc.).  I simply use it for batch renaming and attribute changing of the files themselves, though - never tried the tag features.

I think I'll try them out and see which I like better.  I don't really need the tagging feature

Tag & Rename
http://www.softpointer.com/tr.htm

is the best tagger for mp3/flac/ogg that i've found.  however, it isn't free.
