Tahakum: A Multi-Purpose Audio Control Framework

Seldess, Zachary and Yamada, Toshiro

Proceedings of the International Conference on New Interfaces for Musical Expression

We present Tahakum, an open source, extensible collection of software tools designed to enhance workflow on multichannel audio systems within complex multi-functional research and development environments. Tahakum aims to provide critical functionality required across a broad spectrum of audio systems usage scenarios, while at the same time remaining sufficiently open as to easily support modifications and extensions via 3rd party hardware and software. Features provided in the framework include software for custom mixing/routing and audio system preset automation, software for network message routing/redirection and protocol conversion, and software for dynamic audio asset management and control.
