AUBE: the beast within your system


AUBE (pronounced 'obey') is a system for sound generation and processing. It is Free Software, available under the GNU General Public Licence.

AUBE can process audio on the fly; the user set up arbitrary configuration of sound sequencers, generators and effects modules, through which sound is generated, filtered, recorded etc. There is also support for loaded samples which can be sequenced (like a tracker) and edited.

The following modules are included:


Mailing List

There's a mailing list you can subscribe to to receive updates about new releases of aube. To join, send a message with 'subscribe' in the subject to conradp.aube-request@cse.unsw.edu.au.

If you've got some nice screenshots of AUBE running send me URL's!

Example Sounds

NEWGnome sounds

I made some sounds for Gnome desktop events using aube. You can get them from here.

Snippets of music

A few short samples ... if you've got some nice ones you generated with AUBE then send them to me :)

The following are available at: ftp://ftp.cse.unsw.edu.au/pub/users/conradp/aube/example_sounds/ and via http at dl/example_sounds/.

Note: there seem to be some problems with ftp from here, so if you can't get these via ftp then please use the http links!! If that doesn't work, mail me and I'll send you some :)


You'll need the Audio File Library to make use of sample loading and saving (also available with Gnome) -- make sure to get a recent version of audiofile (eg. >=0.1.11), as earlier versions had problems loading some kinds of files.

Now go get AUBE:



libxml issues

For AUBE 0.21.0 and 0.21.1 you need libxml, which is now a standard part of Gnome. However, libxml has changed since AUBE 0.21.1 was released and the xml support no longer compiles. Versions 0.21.1a, 0.21.1b and 0.21.1c address this problem, but do not support the loading and saving of module setups.


Here's a quick start guide to getting sounds out of aube.
