  1. aRts

    aRts, which stands for analog Real time synthesizer, is an audio framework that is no longer under development. It is best known for previously being used in K Desktop Environment 2 and 3 to simulate an analog synthesizer. A key component of aRts is the sound server which mixes several sound streams in realtime. The sound server, called artsd, is also utilized as the standard sound server for K Desktop Environment 2–3. However, the sound server is not dependent on K Desktop Environment and can be used in other projects. It is a direct competitor to JACK Audio Connection Kit, another real-time sound server, and an indirect competitor to the Enlightened Sound Daemon. It is now common to use ALSA’s software mixing instead of artsd. The aRts platform also includes aRts Builder — an application for building custom layouts and configurations for audio mixers, sequencers, synthesizers and other audio schema via a user-friendly graphical user interface. aRts is free software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License.

Examples of ARTS in a Sentence

  1. Peter S. Jennison:

    The poor and the affluent are not communicating because they do not have the same words. When we talk of the millions who are culturally deprived, we refer not to those who do not have access to good libraries and bookstores, or to museums and centers for the performing arts, but those deprived of the words with which everything else is built, the words that opens doors. Children without words are licked before they start. The legion of the young wordless in urban and rural slums, eight to ten years old, do not know the meaning of hundreds of words which most middle-class people assume to be familiar to much younger children. Most of them have never seen their parents read a book or a magazine, or heard words used in other than rudimentary ways related to physical needs and functions. Thus is cultural fallout caused, the vicious circle of ignorance and poverty reinforced and perpetuated. Children deprived of words become school dropouts; dropouts deprived of hope behave delinquently. Amateur censors blame delinquency on reading immoral books and magazines, when in fact, the inability to read anything is the basic trouble.

  2. Susan Sontag:

    We live under continual threat of two equally fearful, but seemingly opposed, destinies: unremitting banality and inconceivable terror. It is fantasy, served out in large rations by the popular arts, which allows most people to cope with these twin specters.

  3. Felix G. Rohatyn:

    What is desperately needed ... is the skepticism and the sense of history that a liberal arts education provides.

  4. Adam Szubanski:

    I was off work for two months. I can’t lift anything so my firm’s got me doing paperwork, i used to train four times a week and loved martial arts and boxing. I can’t do any of it now.

  5. Eduardo Vilaro:

    But meanwhile, the arts are what's keeping the human connection alive in social media, it's remarkable. It's quite a conundrum.
