WaveShop v1.0.14.001

Midas on 3 Sep 2019
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 7 Nov 2013
  • Suggested by Taf

WaveShop is a fast and lightweight audio editor, which despite its name supports lots of different audio file formats, including MP3, FLAC, OGG/Vorbis, and AAC/MP4. The program is bit-perfect, meaning uncompressed audio samples aren't altered unless they need to be; editing a portion of an audio file only affects that portion and the rest of the file remains untouched. Cut and pasted audio blocks won't modify their contents. This is especially useful for patching a finished master without corrupting its dither. Other features include unlimited undo, peak and RMS analysis, normalizing, fading, audio generation, and more.

Note that the author recommends running the 64-bit version (if you have 64-bit Windows) as it can load bigger files without running out of memory.

Alternatively, WaveShop Portable automatically switches between 32 & 64-bit and portablizes paths. X-WaveShop is also available.

RealWorld Cursor Editor v2013.1

Checker on 11 Jul 2013
  • 23MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on
  • Suggested by lautrepay

RealWorld Cursor Editor can create and edit cursors, both static and animated. You can draw your cursors pixel by pixel or make them from images using a simple wizard. Images in cursors can be modified by drawing tools such as Lines, Curves, Rectangles, or Ellipses. A drag-and-drop based interface allows users to easily reorder, duplicate, or append frames to animated cursors.

The program contains several predefined filters covering color corrections, softening, sharpening, motion blur and other effects. Selected filters (for example drop shadow) can be applied on multiple images at once.

Can import cursors from Linux XCursor format.

What's new?
  • This version of RWCE contains some changes introduced in RealWorld Paint 2013.1, including redesigned color picker, drawing tools and effect windows.
  • There are also changes directly related to cursors:
    - When selecting cursor sizes in various places of the application, a text field with one or more sizes in pixels and a dropdown menu with standard options is used.
    - Improved support for Linux XCursor files. When opening a xcursor file, all resolutions are imported and the cursor can also be saved. The code was moved to a plug-in that can be installed from the online page.
    - Function that uploads cursor to the cursor library is now more user friendly. Users must log in before uploading a cursor. After a successful upload, a link to a web page with the cursor is displayed. Obviously flawed cursors can not be uploaded anymore.

Nice. Note that the QR quodes are 62 x 62 pixels. I don't see any way of changing that in the program, and the resulting QR codes don't seem to enlarge crisply. So if you need larger, you may want to use one of the free online sites - there are a zillion of them.
For those who do web stuff, http://phpqrcode.sourceforge.net/ has a very nifty php-based QR code generator that doesn't have any external dependencies. It's quite flexible, and the codes resize gracefully.

I know Emerge Desktop is also minimalist if you want, but the different applets/modules eats up too much memory for my taste.

This seems to be confirmation of my exact statement previous regarding starting in German and having NO SETTINGS.

Re: The trick, YES I noticed how to change to English MY POINT was it ALWAYS STARTS in German. (Just in case you missed that.)

So unless someone can show me that it will save the English setting I will assume that as I surmised it is standard behavior and I am still right.

Drop Zone creates simple windows to quickly manage files.

Ah, right, very good point, that IS handy, to make quick links to your storage folders. You can make a folder on the thumb drive "sort_folder", then make shortcuts to folders within that, then put a shortcut to "sort_folder", but not as easy as this app. Good job in finding an app to make that's somewhat original these days.

An excellent and important utility! Using a different (local) text handler for each and every time we input text is a cognetics nightmare which TEA solves quite neatly within our present architecture.
Note: This utility uses the clipboard to move the completed file back to the original location. Anything already on the clipboard is lost in the process.

This is a great program. When I was using multiple editors to get the best of each (NotePad++, LibreOffice, and Dreamweaver), I used this frequently. Also works well with gpg4usb.

It works well as long as you stick to editing your text and refrain from switching to various other apps - to research something for your text etc.

It seems to rely on Alt-Tabbing back to the previously used window to transport your edited text back to where it belongs. This will only work if you had not switched to other programs in the meantime.

A derivative, newer (3.7) version of this software, still being developed and supported, is available from PortableApps via this link: http://portableapps.com/apps/music_video/wxmp3gain-portable

The previous version has been withdrawn from their database on grounds of non-portability; the download link given leads to the Sourceforge page for this withdrawn (and out-of-date) version.

Lacuna Launcher v1.0.0

webfork on 20 Nov 2015
  • 462KB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 12 Dec 2008
  • Suggested by lautrepay

Lacuna Launcher uses a single shortcut with a list of files to open all at once. Applications (.exe), shortcuts (.lnk), internet shortcuts (.url), images, music, movies, etc.

Category:
Runs on:Win95 / Win98 / WinME / WinNT / Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
License: Freeware (Donationware)
How to extract:
  1. Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. Open the included list.txt file in a text editor and make a list with the paths to files you want to open, placing one per line (no limit)
  3. Launch ll.exe
Programs start in the same order that they appear in the list

Note: Command-line options are available to give you more control over timing of the launches and the ability to create multiple lists and specify which you would like to use. To launch files with command line parameters, create a shortcut with the parameters set, and use the path to the shortcut file (.lnk) in the list, instead of a direct path to the application.

Been using this app for a few years and it's great. I work part time at 3 different jobs and have a list created for each office. Run the appropriate command line first thing in the morning and all the programs/files I need for the day are loaded and ready to go.

Joe on 2015-02-02 14:35

A good simple alternative to Splat if you are only interested in launching programs.

You can create separate lists for programs you want to launch together, e.g. one for office work, one for graphic design, etc, etc. You can create a list of all your favorite programs and make them start with Windows. Does not remain open or resident in memory once all programs are launched.

Altogether a very useful program.

Tested and works in Windows 8.1 x64 too.

TP109 on 2015-11-17 01:33

Very useful and simple tool for launching programs, opening folders, URLs, etc. with a shortcut. Launch lists use a text file so it's super easy to modify lists quickly and easily with the default txt editor.

Maybe it's the new version (1.7), but this doesn't seem to save settings in the application folder. If not, it's not portable (settings aren't portable).

Midas on 2014-01-14 10:07

Settings aren't really portable, but in view of their number and the nature of the program, that's not really an issue, IMHO...

Have been using Metapad and then Metapad360 for 15+ years
The range of text formatting tools are amazing.
My fav is "quote" Alt+Q, which inserts your custom string at col.1 of all selected lines/paragraphs/pages. Notepad++ does a similar thing BUT not all in col.1 ... Metapad makes it much easier to spot the "quoted" lines.
I am using "'o" , without the quotes, as my quote string.

bawldiggle on 2019-10-16 22:18

Forget to mention the "stickies" feature ...
10 shortcuts (Quick buffers) to paste your custom single line strings onto Metapad docs ...
** Settings (dlg) Buffers & Languages (tab/page)
hot keys Alt+<num> ... where <num> is (querty) 0 to 9
=OR=
selected text on saved file Metapad (config) -> Alt+Shift+<num> (ie qwerty-num)
