<b>Freecycle</b> is a <b>beat slicer</b> running on GNU/Linux platform, providing amplitude domain and frequency domain beat matching / zero crossing algorithms. It exports sliced audio chunks and generates a MIDI file which can be used to play the sliced loop. <b>Freecycle</b> also exports <b>AKAI</b> S5000/S6000/Z4/Z8 <b>.AKP</b> file to be used with your favorite sampler.

<b>Freecycle</b> provides <b>LADSPA</b> interface with full <b>control parameters automation</b> and some quite basic but powerfull routing schemas.

With traditional amplitude (scope) view, <b>Freecycle</b> also offers the fully integrated <b>spectrogram view</b>, useful for <b>LADSPA</b> filters visualization.

<b>Freecycle</b> features basic OSS output and preliminary <b>JACK</b> layer connectivity.
