Marsyas is 10 years old - time to start a blog

Marsyas (http://marsyas.info) is a free software framework for audio processing with specific emphasis on music analysis, synthesis and retrieval. has been under development for over 10 years now. It has been used for a variety of projects in academia and industry. The documentation although far from complete has a lot of information and there is a lot of source code to explore. Although the Marsyas developer community is small and the mailing lists provide a good forum for answer questions in the past 2 or 3 years I have realized that Marsyas has grown to the point that many developers are not aware of all the available functionality. My goal for this blog is to highlight different aspects of working with the Marsyas. The main target audience is Marsyas developers and users but anyone interested in audio and music processing software might find it interesting. I plan to post about once every two weeks and I might increase the frequency if there is enough interest.
