* Reverted yesterday's MME driver change for now (requires some
  additional code in RTMath for being able to work correctly).

1 schoenebeck 1993 Version CVS HEAD (?)
2    
3 persson 2086 * packaging changes:
4     - fixed building with newer MinGW-w64

8     doing "make dist"
9     - removed empty directories left from the cvs to svn migration
10 persson 2185 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.6.1
11 persson 2203 - another "make dist" fix, for the LV2 plugin

27 persson 2382
28 persson 2086 * general changes:
29 iliev 2012 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
30     the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
31 schoenebeck 2047 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
32     respective profiling code is currently broken
33 schoenebeck 2053 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
34     "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
35     where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
36     (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
37 schoenebeck 2121 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
38     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
39     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
40     note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
41     the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
42     effect type is)
43     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
44     note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
45     the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
46     effect type is)
47 schoenebeck 2124 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
48 schoenebeck 2140 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512

56     instrument on an engine channel (a.k.a. part). Some GigaStudio
57     instruments for example are splitted over several files like
58     "Foo.gig", "Foo.gx01", "Foo.gx02", ...
59 schoenebeck 2375 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxVoices().
60     - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxStreams().

81     min value
82 schoenebeck 2396 - Exclusive Groups: don't ever stop voices of the same note,
83     doesn't sound naturally with a drumkit

372 iliev 2201 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
373     after MIDI/audio device creation failure
374 schoenebeck 2275 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
375     instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
376     took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective
377     instrument was completely reloaded again.
378 persson 2277 - fixed handling of rapid bank select and program change messages
379     sent to the same sampler channel (patch from the Open Octave

402 schoenebeck 1599
403 schoenebeck 1639 * packaging changes:
404     - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,

449 schoenebeck 1830 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
450     be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
451     stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
452 schoenebeck 1868 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
453     a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
454 schoenebeck 1876 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following

466     - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
467     max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
468 schoenebeck 1604 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
469     opposed to the LSCP specs

475 persson 1748 jack_client_new
476 iliev 1829 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
477 persson 1888 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
478     previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
479     (fixes #117)
480 persson 1889 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
481     win64)
482 persson 1895 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
483     - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed

492     AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
493     (if available)
494 persson 1951 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
495     exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
496 schoenebeck 1599
497 persson 1651 * MIDI driver:
498     - added JACK MIDI driver
499 schoenebeck 1715 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
500     want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
501     input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
502 persson 1889 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
503 persson 1887 CoreMidi or AU
504 persson 1889 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
505 persson 1924 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by

511     to the instruments database
512 iliev 1727 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
513 iliev 1781 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
514     in the instruments database
515     (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
516 persson 1908 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
517     instrument database compilable
518 schoenebeck 1930 - added instrument database support on Windows
519     works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
520     the instruments DB file is located in
521     %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
522     databases for each windows user
523     if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
524     and then creates an empty DB
525 persson 1943 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
526 iliev 1603
527 persson 1644 * Gigasampler format engine:
528     - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted

530 persson 1646 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
531     isn't running
532 persson 1701 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
533     enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
534 schoenebeck 1715 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
535     respective FX send MIDI controller was used
536 schoenebeck 1724 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
537 schoenebeck 1762 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
538     whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
539     connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
540     on)
541 persson 1748 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
542     sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
543     be played
544 schoenebeck 1750 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
545     which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
546     drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
547     part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
548     LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
549     defined for the sampler
550 persson 1764 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
551     audio thread isn't running
552 persson 1844 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
553 schoenebeck 1852 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
554     un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
555     sampler engine anymore
556     - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
557     e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
558 schoenebeck 1857 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
559     same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
560     same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
561 persson 1858 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
562     instrument-level gig parameters
563     - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
564 schoenebeck 1860 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
565 persson 1862 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
566     - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
567 persson 1906 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
568     note was silent
569 persson 1923 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
570     same time a new instrument was loading
571 persson 1644
572 schoenebeck 1687 * LSCP server:
573     - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
574     react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
575     Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
576 schoenebeck 1695 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
577     react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
578     Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
579 iliev 1727 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
580     SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
581 iliev 1771 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
582     frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
583     - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
584     KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
585 iliev 1754 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
586     was incorrect
587 iliev 1763 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
588 schoenebeck 1800 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
589     amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
590     be triggered respectively
591     - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
592     amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
593     which will be triggered respectively
594 persson 1808 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
595     a gigedit file dialog is opened)
596 iliev 1848 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
597 iliev 1882 - hard close of all sockets on exit
598 persson 1897 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
599     driver
600 schoenebeck 1687
601 iliev 1761 * Bug fixes:
602     - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
603     to start instrument loading after another channel
604 iliev 1826 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
605     instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
606 iliev 1827 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
607     instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
608 iliev 1835 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
609     - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
610     GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
611     GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
612     GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
613     GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
614     - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
615 iliev 1843 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
616 iliev 1847 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
617     channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
618 iliev 1855 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
619 persson 1870 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
620     PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
621 persson 1889 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
622     plugin was unloaded
623 persson 1896 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
624     problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
625 persson 1933 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
626     Windows
627 iliev 1761

629 schoenebeck 1560 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
630 schoenebeck 1454
631     * packaging changes:
632     - added autoconf checks for pthread library
633     - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
634     glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
635 senoner 1502 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
636 schoenebeck 1454
637 persson 1455 * general changes:
638     - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
639     editor closed
640 persson 1534 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
641     out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
642     decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
643     order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
644     - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
645     GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
646     the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
647     bugs.
648     - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
649     24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
650     endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
651     unaligned 32bit read and shift
652     - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
653     output via ASIO)
654     - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
655 iliev 1541 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
656     (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
657     SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
658 persson 1455
659 senoner 1500 * AUDIO driver:
660 persson 1534 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
661 senoner 1500
662 senoner 1485 * MIDI driver:
663 schoenebeck 1495 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
664 senoner 1485
665 schoenebeck 1471 * LSCP server:
666     - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
667     forward slash path separators instead of backslash
668     (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
669 schoenebeck 1495 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
670     apostrophes as well
671 schoenebeck 1525 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
672     "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
673     "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
674     about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
675     running on
676 schoenebeck 1471
677 schoenebeck 1424 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
678 schoenebeck 947
679 schoenebeck 1065 * packaging changes:
680 schoenebeck 1212 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
681     API header files anymore
682 schoenebeck 1065 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
683     the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
684 schoenebeck 1175 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
685     capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
686     to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
687     OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
688 schoenebeck 1360 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
689     parameters
690 schoenebeck 1424 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
691     C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
692     are now in global_private.h
693     - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
694     - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
695     - fixed warnings in API doc generation
696 schoenebeck 1065
697 schoenebeck 947 * general changes:
698     - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
699     flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
700 schoenebeck 973 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
701 schoenebeck 947 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
702     loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
703     messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
704     strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
705     instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
706     quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
707     respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
708     global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
709     dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
710 schoenebeck 973 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
711     MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
712     a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
713     drumkits is possible
714 iliev 1108 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
715     MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
716 schoenebeck 990 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
717     due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
718     dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
719 schoenebeck 1001 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
720     output channels for being processed by external effect processors
721     (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
722     controllers
723 schoenebeck 1005 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
724 iliev 1130 - Implemented new, improved notification system
725 schoenebeck 1149 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
726     (patch by Toshi Nagata)
727 iliev 1161 - implemented instruments database
728 iliev 1345 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
729 schoenebeck 1212 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
730     within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
731     you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
732 schoenebeck 1407 startup, added a new LSCP command:
733     "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
734 schoenebeck 1212 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
735     given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
736     time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
737 schoenebeck 1321 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
738     in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
739     without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
740     wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
741 schoenebeck 1221 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
742     policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
743     thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
744     threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
745     setting their own policy and priority
746 schoenebeck 1233 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
747     main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
748     its output
749 persson 1248 - fixed some minor memory leaks
750 schoenebeck 1259 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
751     enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
752 schoenebeck 1314 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
753     register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
754 schoenebeck 1424 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
755 schoenebeck 947
756     * MIDI driver:
757     - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
758    
759 schoenebeck 1049 * audio driver:
760     - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
761     parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
762     (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
763    
764 persson 951 * Gigasampler format engine:
765     - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
766     die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
767     voice starvation for some gigs)
768 persson 1038 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
769     - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
770     playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
771     command
772 persson 1039 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
773 schoenebeck 1041 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
774 persson 1046 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
775     above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
776     even if sustain is 100%
777 persson 1147 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
778     noises or crashes
779 schoenebeck 1149 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
780 schoenebeck 1181 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
781     supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
782 schoenebeck 1321 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
783     instead of a fix value
784 schoenebeck 1348 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
785     127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
786     changed
787 persson 951
788 schoenebeck 1244 * LSCP server:
789     - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
790     (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
791 schoenebeck 1245 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
792     (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
793     - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
794     sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
795     \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
796     code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
797 schoenebeck 1389 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
798     least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
799     "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
800     "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
801     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
802     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
803     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
804     "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
805 schoenebeck 1252 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
806     occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
807     character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
808 persson 1349 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
809     settings
810 schoenebeck 1379 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
811     of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
812     (fixes #57)
813 schoenebeck 1244
814 iliev 959 * Bug fixes:
815     - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
816 persson 1038 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
817     channel audio output device"
818 iliev 1283 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
819     on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
820 iliev 1295 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
821     device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
822     to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
823 iliev 1296 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
824     the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
825     unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
826 iliev 1297 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
827 iliev 1298 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
828     channel changes
829 iliev 1305 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
830     audio output channels and MIDI input ports
831 iliev 1306 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
832     an audio output device
833 schoenebeck 1332 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
834 iliev 959
835 schoenebeck 1221 * test cases:
836     - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
837    
838 schoenebeck 937 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
839 persson 696
840 schoenebeck 697 * packaging changes:
841 capela 868 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
842     to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
843     to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
844 schoenebeck 697 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
845     applications to link against liblinuxsampler
846     - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
847     (Doxygen required)
848 schoenebeck 715 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
849     implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
850     di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
851     with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
852     configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
853 schoenebeck 829 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
854     provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
855 schoenebeck 849 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
856     messages
857 schoenebeck 852 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
858     MIDI drivers
859 schoenebeck 909 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
860     (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
861 schoenebeck 697
862 persson 696 * Gigasampler format engine:
863 schoenebeck 738 - extensive synthesis optimization
864     (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
865     prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
866     each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
867 persson 830 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
868     linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
869     --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
870 persson 696 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
871 persson 729 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
872     following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
873     controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
874 persson 791 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
875     cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
876 persson 877 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
877 schoenebeck 775 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
878 schoenebeck 781 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
879     which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
880 persson 783 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
881     accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
882 persson 797 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
883     time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
884 persson 799 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
885 schoenebeck 829 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
886     - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
887     all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
888     altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
889     mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
890 persson 832 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
891     parameter) and crossfade
892 persson 831 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
893     parameter
894 persson 832 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
895     messages
896 persson 865 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
897     instead of the wave chunk
898     - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
899     not equal to a power of two
900 persson 877 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
901     accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
902     and lowpass turbo.
903 persson 903 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
904     16 bits anymore
905     - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
906     aftertouch)
907 persson 922 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
908     amplifying from 0)
909 persson 696
910 schoenebeck 711 * LSCP server:
911     - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
912 iliev 793 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
913     network activity (fixes bug #26)
914 schoenebeck 826 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
915     (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
916 schoenebeck 711
917 schoenebeck 838 * audio driver:
918     - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
919    
920 schoenebeck 775 * MIDI driver:
921     - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
922     messages several times instead of once
923 schoenebeck 906 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
924     for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
925 persson 922 - added checks for bad MIDI data
926 schoenebeck 775
927 schoenebeck 900 * linuxsampler application:
928     - show available sampler engine types on startup
929    
930 schoenebeck 705 * general changes:
931     - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
932     LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
933     fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
934     introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
935 iliev 716 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
936     --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
937     processing of muted channels.
938 iliev 777 - support for sostenuto pedal
939 iliev 779 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
940 iliev 778 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
941     SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
942 persson 835 - fixed some memory management errors
943 persson 841 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
944     LSCP commands were executed
945 schoenebeck 925 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
946     sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
947 schoenebeck 705
948 schoenebeck 692 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
949 schoenebeck 686
950     * packaging changes:
951     - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
952    
953 schoenebeck 687 * Gigasampler format engine:
954     - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
955     disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
956 schoenebeck 688 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
957     for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
958     stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
959     about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
960     appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
961 schoenebeck 687
962 schoenebeck 677 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
963 schoenebeck 609
964     * packaging changes:
965     - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
966     (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
967 schoenebeck 617 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
968     './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
969 schoenebeck 654 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
970     - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
971     (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
972 schoenebeck 649
973     * Gigasampler format engine:
974     - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
975     - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
976     - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
977     note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
978     note-off velocity.
979 schoenebeck 663 - revised voice stealing
980     (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
981 schoenebeck 659 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
982 schoenebeck 668 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
983     instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
984     (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
985     this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
986 schoenebeck 669 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
987     (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
988     resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
989 schoenebeck 670 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
990     instrument or audio output device change
991 schoenebeck 654
992 schoenebeck 620 * LSCP server:
993 schoenebeck 654 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
994 schoenebeck 660 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
995 schoenebeck 670 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
996 schoenebeck 609
997 schoenebeck 668 * linuxsampler application:
998     - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
999     default IP address and port of LSCP server
1000    
1001 schoenebeck 579 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
1002    
1003     * initial release
