Construct graphic configurations of modules to process and manipulate
MIDI streams in unlimited ways. Designed for live playing, but good
for working on midifiles, too.
The highly regarded and long-lived audio synthesis and processing
program, compiled for Haiku. It was ported before the switch to
Package Management, so the installation procedure doesn't work,
but it can still be run from its own folder (and installed by

A versatile MIDI Sequencer, originally written for BeOS by the folks

This is a (musical) keyboard and control panel to drive the internal synth.
Written for BeOS by Michael Pfeiffer, this has been updated for Haiku.
A Soundfont-based MIDI Synth by Cyan Helkaraxe — from the BeOS era,
but it works quite well in Haiku, with e.g. Sequitur. It has the distinction

an HVIF icon from a bitmap image.
This is the Haiku (~alpha 4 and later)
HDA driver (High Definition Audio) modified to use an optional settings
file to set sample rate, buffer size, and number of buffers.
You will need it if your machine has HDA and you
want to do real-time audio, as the distributed OS
still supplies a driver with unusable latency!
In 1951, the first Computer Game — or a computer built solely to play
a game — was displayed at the Festival of Britain. A simulation of
this machine is available for Haiku on this page, which has extensive details.
A utility that lets you run shell (and other) scripts by clicking,
or dropping files on, their Tracker icons just as if they were regular applications.
It gives you options that are otherwise unavailable except from the command line.
A command-line app that lets you present GUI controls to the user,
and get back the results of entries made. The desired controls

A little command-line utility that translates the contents of any item dropped
or pasted into its window into text structured suitably for processing by Ruby

written by Jeremy Friesner for BeOS, but equally fine for Haiku.
This version has a couple of added features over the last BeOS-only
