Hello list!

Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a global program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source software projects. A participating student gets 5000$ for ca. three months of work. [Link 1]

Denemo is participating and we would like to encourage possible students to contact us through our mailinglist [see attached link 2] or #denemo on irc.freenode.org. 

Our top priority project is the following, but we are also ready for student ideas.

"Make midi/audio output realtime-capable

Denemo creates MIDI messages to use them with its internal Fluidsynth-sampler or send them out via the Jack Audio Connection Kit. This procedure is not realtime-safe yet. Graphical computation and controlling Denemo during playback creates playback-glitches. In order to fix this the midi/audio subsystem should run in its own realtime-thread and get priority. Needed student skills: Programming in C, experience in threads and realtime programming. Useful: Knowledge of MIDI and the Jack Audio Connection Kit."
