din is a free software musical instrument for GNU/Linux that lets you use your computer mouse like the bow of a traditional instrument like the Sarangi. You can draw and sculpt Bezier curve waveforms, create gating and modulation (FM and AM) patterns, and create delay feedback and volume patterns. You can also create an unlimited number of drones and sculpt their waveforms. It uses JACK to output audio, and supports MIDI, OSC and IRC bot for input. din can be extended and customized with Tcl scripts.
Some goals of the din project: * be a high quality free software musical instrument on a totally free platform like GNU/Linux; * use readily available input devices like the computer mouse & keyboard to make high quality music.
