proj/gentoo: Initial commit
This commit represents a new era for Gentoo: Storing the gentoo-x86 tree in Git, as converted from CVS. This commit is the start of the NEW history. Any historical data is intended to be grafted onto this point. Creation process: 1. Take final CVS checkout snapshot 2. Remove ALL ChangeLog* files 3. Transform all Manifests to thin 4. Remove empty Manifests 5. Convert all stale $Header$/$Id$ CVS keywords to non-expanded Git $Id$ 5.1. Do not touch files with -kb/-ko keyword flags. Signed-off-by: Robin H. Johnson <> X-Thanks: Alec Warner <> - did the GSoC 2006 migration tests X-Thanks: Robin H.

+TAP-plugins is short for Tom's Audio Processing plugins. It is a bunch of
+LADSPA plugins for digital audio processing, intended for use in a
+professional DAW environment such as Ardour. These plugins should compile
+and run on any recent (that is, not seriously outdated) GNU/Linux system.
+They don't require any special libraries besides the standard GNU C and math
+libraries, which are expected to be provided on the machine used for
+The audio processing algorithms done by TAP-plugins are coded to be
+independent of the actual sample rate. The sample rate is always a parameter
+during computations. The plugins have been tested with sample rates 44.1 kHz
+and 96 kHz, as the author uses these values in his studio. Please note that
+although all plugins should be essentially functional at virtually any
+sample rate, the audio fidelity depends slightly on the actual sample rate
+used. Higher sample rate is better, of course. This means that an equalizer
+or reverberator plugin will produce higher quality output, and will sound a
+bit smoother at 96 kHz compared to, say, 44.1 kHz. This is a natural effect
+that results from the fundamental properties of digital signal processing,
+but you should be aware of it nevertheless.
