Mammut will FFT your sound in one single gigantic analysis (no windows).
These spectral data, where the development in time is incorporated in
mysterious ways, may then be transformed by different algorithms prior to
resynthesis. An interesting aspect of Mammut is its completely
non-intuitive sound transformation approach.

jack_capture is a program for recording soundfiles with jack.
The default operation of the program is executed by writing "jack_capture"
in the terminal without any extra command line options:
...which will record what you hear in your loudspeakers
into a stereo wav file. But it has lots of other features as well.
