OpenSebJ is a free open-source sound mixer, especially good for creative experimenting and serious sampled music writing.
OpenSebJ supports loading up to 255 sound samples from standard WAV files. Once loaded, the samples can be played and mixed all in the real time, using the software as a cool and cheap performance instrument. For each sample loaded, you can set individual settings of pan, volume and frequency for each of them, loop them and reverse (and hear the resulting sound at once). There are several mixing tools; some of them are good for the «prepare-then-play» scenario, and others are good for the «change-while-performing» work.
«Track editor» is the main window, where all tracks are located, edited and viewed (as graphs). «Beat box» is a usual beat box window, where you can set the «rhythm pattern» by selecting some beats to be played in the timed grid. «Beat pad» is the place where you can set a key for each beat, so they would be accessible in one touch when the music is on. And OpenSebJ is highly successful for staying close to the «real» or «hardware» mixers it even has a «virtual needle», you can scratch samples while playing, as easy as in the real life!
Exclusively easy and pretty to use, acceptable for on-line performances as well as for creating and saving music (there is an option to record all your creations to disc).
