Wired project aims to be a professional music production and creation software running on the Linux operating system. Wired supports unlimited Audio/Midi tracks playback and recording, and introduces a Plugin system for instruments and effects. It can also read AKAI CDs and import 18 different Wave formats.

The following instruments and effects are being developed:

Loop sampler, with pitch shifting and time-stretching
Beatbox with a new editing concept, to create reallistic and complex drum sequences
MIDI controlled sampler, which can read AKAI program and sample files.
High-pass, Low-pass and Notch filters
