ReZound aims to be a stable, open source, and graphical audio file editor primarily for but not limited to the Linux operating system.
[this description needs revision now]

— W h a t ' s   N e x t —

Not particularly ordered:
  • Preview for Effects (feature discussed here)
  • Better audio output code for full compliance with JACK's realtime requirements
  • A Configuration Dialog to Change All the Settings (stored in ~/.rezound/registry.dat right now)
  • Equalizer action
  • Some sorts of noise removal (contingent upon gwc-lib'sdevelopment)
  • Give option for using libsndfile and/or audiofile. (Waiting for libsndfile to finish implementing cues/markers and user notes support etc.)
These are the tentative main objectives to accomplish before calling it 1.0
