File size: 29716 byte(s)
* Added Instruments DB on Windows.
* Relative path support for DB file (stdalone and VST) not implemented yet

1 Version CVS HEAD (?)
2
3 * packaging changes:
4 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
5 causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
6 "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
7 (patch by Alexis Ballier)
8 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
9 - fixes for building on OS X (thanks to Ebrahim Mayat for testing)
10 - fixed configure so it detects x86_64 (#107)
11 - fixes for building with newer MinGW versions
12 - fix for building with bison 2.4 (#111)
13 - fixed building with libgig installed in a non-standard directory
14 - minor fix in configure for mmsystem.h detection on MinGW
15 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
16 directory of liblinuxsampler dll
17 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
18
19 * general changes:
20 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
21 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
22 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
23 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
24 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
25 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
26 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
27 unnecessarily long after an update
28 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
29 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
30 of gigedit)
31 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
32 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
33 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
34 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
35 implementation, which is usually faster)
36 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
37 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
38 VST plugin
39 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
40 only when there are actual changes
41 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
42 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
43 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
44 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
45 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
46 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
47 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
48 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
49 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
50 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
51 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
52 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
53 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
54 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
55 model more strictly
56 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
57
58 * audio driver:
59 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
60 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
61 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
62 opposed to the LSCP specs
63 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
64 reflected the wrong value
65 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
66 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
67 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
68 jack_client_new
69 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
70 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
71 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
72 (fixes #117)
73 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
74 win64)
75 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
76 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
77 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
78 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
79 energyXT)
80
81 * MIDI driver:
82 - added JACK MIDI driver
83 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
84 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
85 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
86 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
87 CoreMidi or AU
88 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
89
90 * instruments database:
91 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
92 to the instruments database
93 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
94 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
95 in the instruments database
96 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
97 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
98 instrument database compilable
99 - added instrument database support on Windows
100 relative file path for instruments db in order to work in both
101 standalone and VST similar to the editor plugins still need to
102 be implemented
103
104 * Gigasampler format engine:
105 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
106 while notes were playing
107 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
108 isn't running
109 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
110 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
111 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
112 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
113 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
114 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
115 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
116 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
117 on)
118 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
119 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
120 be played
121 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
122 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
123 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
124 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
125 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
126 defined for the sampler
127 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
128 audio thread isn't running
129 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
130 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
131 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
132 sampler engine anymore
133 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
134 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
135 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
136 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
137 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
138 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
139 instrument-level gig parameters
140 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
141 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
142 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
143 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
144 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
145 note was silent
146
147 * LSCP server:
148 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
149 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
150 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
151 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
152 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
153 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
154 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
155 SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
156 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
157 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
158 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
159 KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
160 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
161 was incorrect
162 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
163 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
164 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
165 be triggered respectively
166 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
167 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
168 which will be triggered respectively
169 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
170 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
171 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
172 - hard close of all sockets on exit
173 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
174 driver
175
176 * Bug fixes:
177 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
178 to start instrument loading after another channel
179 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
180 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
181 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
182 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
183 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
184 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
185 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
186 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
187 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
188 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
189 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
190 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
191 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
192 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
193 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
194 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
195 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
196 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
197 plugin was unloaded
198 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
199 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
200
201
202 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
203
204 * packaging changes:
205 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
206 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
207 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
208 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
209
210 * general changes:
211 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
212 editor closed
213 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
214 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
215 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
216 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
217 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
218 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
219 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
220 bugs.
221 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
222 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
223 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
224 unaligned 32bit read and shift
225 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
226 output via ASIO)
227 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
228 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
229 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
230 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
231
232 * AUDIO driver:
233 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
234
235 * MIDI driver:
236 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
237
238 * LSCP server:
239 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
240 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
241 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
242 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
243 apostrophes as well
244 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
245 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
246 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
247 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
248 running on
249
250 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
251
252 * packaging changes:
253 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
254 API header files anymore
255 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
256 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
257 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
258 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
259 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
260 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
261 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
262 parameters
263 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
264 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
265 are now in global_private.h
266 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
267 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
268 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
269
270 * general changes:
271 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
272 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
273 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
274 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
275 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
276 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
277 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
278 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
279 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
280 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
281 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
282 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
283 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
284 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
285 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
286 drumkits is possible
287 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
288 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
289 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
290 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
291 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
292 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
293 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
294 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
295 controllers
296 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
297 - Implemented new, improved notification system
298 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
299 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
300 - implemented instruments database
301 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
302 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
303 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
304 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
305 startup, added a new LSCP command:
306 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
307 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
308 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
309 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
310 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
311 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
312 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
313 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
314 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
315 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
316 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
317 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
318 setting their own policy and priority
319 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
320 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
321 its output
322 - fixed some minor memory leaks
323 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
324 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
325 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
326 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
327 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
328
329 * MIDI driver:
330 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
331
332 * audio driver:
333 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
334 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
335 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
336
337 * Gigasampler format engine:
338 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
339 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
340 voice starvation for some gigs)
341 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
342 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
343 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
344 command
345 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
346 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
347 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
348 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
349 even if sustain is 100%
350 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
351 noises or crashes
352 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
353 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
354 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
355 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
356 instead of a fix value
357 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
358 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
359 changed
360
361 * LSCP server:
362 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
363 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
364 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
365 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
366 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
367 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
368 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
369 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
370 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
371 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
372 "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
373 "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
374 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
375 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
376 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
377 "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
378 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
379 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
380 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
381 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
382 settings
383 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
384 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
385 (fixes #57)
386
387 * Bug fixes:
388 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
389 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
390 channel audio output device"
391 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
392 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
393 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
394 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
395 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
396 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
397 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
398 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
399 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
400 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
401 channel changes
402 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
403 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
404 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
405 an audio output device
406 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
407
408 * test cases:
409 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
410
411 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
412
413 * packaging changes:
414 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
415 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
416 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
417 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
418 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
419 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
420 (Doxygen required)
421 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
422 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
423 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
424 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
425 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
426 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
427 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
428 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
429 messages
430 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
431 MIDI drivers
432 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
433 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
434
435 * Gigasampler format engine:
436 - extensive synthesis optimization
437 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
438 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
439 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
440 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
441 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
442 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
443 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
444 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
445 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
446 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
447 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
448 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
449 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
450 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
451 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
452 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
453 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
454 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
455 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
456 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
457 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
458 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
459 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
460 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
461 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
462 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
463 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
464 parameter) and crossfade
465 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
466 parameter
467 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
468 messages
469 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
470 instead of the wave chunk
471 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
472 not equal to a power of two
473 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
474 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
475 and lowpass turbo.
476 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
477 16 bits anymore
478 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
479 aftertouch)
480 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
481 amplifying from 0)
482
483 * LSCP server:
484 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
485 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
486 network activity (fixes bug #26)
487 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
488 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
489
490 * audio driver:
491 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
492
493 * MIDI driver:
494 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
495 messages several times instead of once
496 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
497 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
498 - added checks for bad MIDI data
499
500 * linuxsampler application:
501 - show available sampler engine types on startup
502
503 * general changes:
504 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
505 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
506 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
507 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
508 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
509 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
510 processing of muted channels.
511 - support for sostenuto pedal
512 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
513 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
514 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
515 - fixed some memory management errors
516 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
517 LSCP commands were executed
518 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
519 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
520
521 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
522
523 * packaging changes:
524 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
525
526 * Gigasampler format engine:
527 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
528 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
529 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
530 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
531 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
532 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
533 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
534
535 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
536
537 * packaging changes:
538 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
539 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
540 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
541 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
542 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
543 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
544 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
545
546 * Gigasampler format engine:
547 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
548 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
549 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
550 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
551 note-off velocity.
552 - revised voice stealing
553 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
554 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
555 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
556 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
557 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
558 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
559 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
560 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
561 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
562 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
563 instrument or audio output device change
564
565 * LSCP server:
566 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
567 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
568 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
569
570 * linuxsampler application:
571 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
572 default IP address and port of LSCP server
573
574 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
575
576 * initial release
