The second stable release (0.9.0) of JAMin - the JACK Audio Mastering

JAMin is a GPL-licensed, realtime mastering processor designed to

signal path. All processing elements use linear-phase filtering to
eliminate phase distortion.
JAMin runs on Linux using the JACK Audio Connection Kit, a low-latency
audio server. JACK connects multiple applications to a single sound
device, and also share audio among themselves. We rely on other JACK
applications (like ardour, ecasound, or rezound) for playback and
