File size: 29856 byte(s)
* Instruments DB on Windows gets automatically created if not present

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 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
101 the instruments DB file is located in
102 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
103 databases for each windows user
104 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
105 and then creates an empty DB
106
107 * Gigasampler format engine:
108 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
109 while notes were playing
110 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
111 isn't running
112 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
113 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
114 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
115 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
116 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
117 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
118 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
119 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
120 on)
121 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
122 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
123 be played
124 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
125 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
126 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
127 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
128 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
129 defined for the sampler
130 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
131 audio thread isn't running
132 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
133 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
134 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
135 sampler engine anymore
136 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
137 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
138 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
139 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
140 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
141 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
142 instrument-level gig parameters
143 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
144 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
145 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
146 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
147 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
148 note was silent
149
150 * LSCP server:
151 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
152 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
153 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
154 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
155 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
156 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
157 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
158 SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
159 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
160 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
161 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
162 KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
163 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
164 was incorrect
165 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
166 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
167 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
168 be triggered respectively
169 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
170 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
171 which will be triggered respectively
172 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
173 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
174 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
175 - hard close of all sockets on exit
176 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
177 driver
178
179 * Bug fixes:
180 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
181 to start instrument loading after another channel
182 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
183 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
184 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
185 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
186 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
187 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
188 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
189 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
190 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
191 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
192 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
193 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
194 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
195 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
196 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
197 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
198 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
199 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
200 plugin was unloaded
201 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
202 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
203
204
205 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
206
207 * packaging changes:
208 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
209 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
210 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
211 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
212
213 * general changes:
214 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
215 editor closed
216 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
217 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
218 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
219 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
220 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
221 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
222 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
223 bugs.
224 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
225 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
226 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
227 unaligned 32bit read and shift
228 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
229 output via ASIO)
230 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
231 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
232 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
233 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
234
235 * AUDIO driver:
236 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
237
238 * MIDI driver:
239 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
240
241 * LSCP server:
242 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
243 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
244 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
245 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
246 apostrophes as well
247 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
248 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
249 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
250 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
251 running on
252
253 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
254
255 * packaging changes:
256 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
257 API header files anymore
258 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
259 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
260 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
261 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
262 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
263 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
264 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
265 parameters
266 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
267 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
268 are now in global_private.h
269 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
270 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
271 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
272
273 * general changes:
274 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
275 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
276 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
277 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
278 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
279 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
280 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
281 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
282 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
283 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
284 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
285 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
286 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
287 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
288 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
289 drumkits is possible
290 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
291 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
292 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
293 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
294 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
295 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
296 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
297 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
298 controllers
299 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
300 - Implemented new, improved notification system
301 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
302 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
303 - implemented instruments database
304 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
305 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
306 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
307 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
308 startup, added a new LSCP command:
309 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
310 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
311 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
312 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
313 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
314 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
315 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
316 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
317 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
318 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
319 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
320 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
321 setting their own policy and priority
322 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
323 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
324 its output
325 - fixed some minor memory leaks
326 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
327 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
328 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
329 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
330 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
331
332 * MIDI driver:
333 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
334
335 * audio driver:
336 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
337 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
338 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
339
340 * Gigasampler format engine:
341 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
342 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
343 voice starvation for some gigs)
344 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
345 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
346 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
347 command
348 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
349 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
350 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
351 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
352 even if sustain is 100%
353 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
354 noises or crashes
355 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
356 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
357 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
358 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
359 instead of a fix value
360 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
361 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
362 changed
363
364 * LSCP server:
365 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
366 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
367 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
368 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
369 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
370 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
371 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
372 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
373 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
374 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
375 "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
376 "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
377 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
378 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
379 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
380 "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
381 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
382 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
383 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
384 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
385 settings
386 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
387 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
388 (fixes #57)
389
390 * Bug fixes:
391 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
392 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
393 channel audio output device"
394 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
395 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
396 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
397 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
398 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
399 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
400 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
401 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
402 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
403 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
404 channel changes
405 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
406 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
407 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
408 an audio output device
409 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
410
411 * test cases:
412 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
413
414 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
415
416 * packaging changes:
417 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
418 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
419 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
420 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
421 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
422 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
423 (Doxygen required)
424 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
425 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
426 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
427 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
428 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
429 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
430 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
431 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
432 messages
433 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
434 MIDI drivers
435 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
436 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
437
438 * Gigasampler format engine:
439 - extensive synthesis optimization
440 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
441 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
442 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
443 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
444 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
445 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
446 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
447 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
448 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
449 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
450 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
451 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
452 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
453 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
454 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
455 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
456 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
457 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
458 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
459 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
460 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
461 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
462 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
463 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
464 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
465 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
466 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
467 parameter) and crossfade
468 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
469 parameter
470 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
471 messages
472 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
473 instead of the wave chunk
474 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
475 not equal to a power of two
476 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
477 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
478 and lowpass turbo.
479 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
480 16 bits anymore
481 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
482 aftertouch)
483 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
484 amplifying from 0)
485
486 * LSCP server:
487 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
488 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
489 network activity (fixes bug #26)
490 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
491 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
492
493 * audio driver:
494 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
495
496 * MIDI driver:
497 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx

499 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
500 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
501 - added checks for bad MIDI data
502
503 * linuxsampler application:
504 - show available sampler engine types on startup
505
506 * general changes:
507 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
508 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
509 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
510 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
511 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
512 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
513 processing of muted channels.
514 - support for sostenuto pedal
515 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
516 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
517 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
518 - fixed some memory management errors
519 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
520 LSCP commands were executed
521 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
522 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
523
524 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
525
526 * packaging changes:
527 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
528
529 * Gigasampler format engine:
530 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
531 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
532 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
533 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
534 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
535 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
536 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
537
538 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
539
540 * packaging changes:
541 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
542 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
543 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
544 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
545 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
546 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
547 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
548
549 * Gigasampler format engine:
550 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
551 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
552 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
553 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
554 note-off velocity.
555 - revised voice stealing
556 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
557 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
558 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
559 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
560 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
561 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
562 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
563 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
564 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
565 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
566 instrument or audio output device change
567
568 * LSCP server:
569 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
570 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
571 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
572
573 * linuxsampler application:
574 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
575 default IP address and port of LSCP server
576
577 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
578
579 * initial release
