- Peruse the Audacity wiki . It looks extremely promising from standpoint of being able to integrate or use sound files and music from Wikimedia because while the source and executables are downloadable from SourceForge the home web site is driven by wikimedia software or an extremely fine user interface clone! 8) Mirwin 23:27, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

Readings[edit | edit source]
The links below have bunch of stuff that needs screening and evaluation:
- http://www.hitsquad.com/smm/freeware/XP/ Extensive list of links of open source or freeware utilities to create Music/Audio via an XP based pc.
- Personally I am looking for a sheet music editor which can be plugged into a inexpensive keyboard via midi combined with a recording and mixing capability. If anyone else has information applicable leave it hear or nearby and lets do some system block diagrams, bill of materials, assembly instructions and a user's guide so I can finally make my own royalty audio tracks/music for java applets.
