The following projects might be of interest:
* Description: A library to read, write and manipulate MIDI, WAVE, and SoundFont2 files.
* Hackage Package: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/HCodecs
* Git repository: http://github.com/giorgidze/HCodecs
* Possible tasks: Add more codecs and/or improve the performance of existing codecs
* Student will learn/use: Monadic parser combinators, parsing of binary data, how to test Haskell code
using QuickCheck and HPC
* Description: Software synthesizer
* Hackage Package : http://hackage.haskell.org/package/YampaSynth
* Git Repository: http://github.com/giorgidze/YampaSynth
* Possible tasks: Add new audio filters and generators, use in other reactive applications, improve
* Student will learn/use: Programming with arrows, Functional Reactiver Programming (FRP) in Yampa,
