xharp is a multi-platform program attempting to provide a musical interface for the expression of audio samples. The initial versions of xharp provide for the user a set of "strings" representing notes of the musical keyboard and specific audio samples. When one's mouse is passed over a string a sample is triggered and sound waves are output. The Soundfont sample format is being employed initially, though others are planned. xharp hopes to be multi-platform, multi-language, user-friendly, and a common part of linux music-related distributions.
