10 - made sure all source files for hostplugins are included when
11 doing "make dist"
12 - removed empty directories left from the cvs to svn migration

16 - minor Makefile fix for building lscpparser when build and source
17 directories are separate
18 - Mac OS X: made it possible to specify plugin installation dir to
19 configure
20 - Mac OS X: Makefile fix for the install-strip target
22 * general changes:
23 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
24 the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
25 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
26 respective profiling code is currently broken

36 effect type is)
37 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
38 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
39 the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual

256 * Bug fixes:
257 - Fixed crash which may occur when MIDI key + transpose is out of range
258 - minor valgrind fixes
259 - fixed crash which occurred when changing an already deployed sampler
260 channel to a different engine type
261 - fixed crash when deleting a sampler channel or changing engine
262 type while an instrument load was in progress
263 - bugfix: playing a note while changing the instrument could cause
264 a crash, or give "Handing back unknown region" error messages
265 - bugfix: calling SET VOICES (which Fantasia does on start and
266 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded
267 - Mac OS X: fixed name collision of enum in EffectControl and
268 wrong name of destructor in AudioOutputDeviceCoreAudio.cpp
269 - Mac OS X: fixed hanging threads
270 - Windows: disabled the previous thread fix on non-Mac systems, as
271 it caused hanging threads on Windows
272 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
273 after MIDI/audio device creation failure
274 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
275 instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
276 took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective
277 instrument was completely reloaded again.
278 - fixed handling of rapid bank select and program change messages
279 sent to the same sampler channel (patch from the Open Octave
280 project, slightly adjusted)
281 - fixed crash when trying to create an effect instance with controls
282 which min and/or max values depend on the sample rate
284 Version 1.0.0 (31 July 2009)
286 * packaging changes:
287 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
288 causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
289 "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
290 (patch by Alexis Ballier)
291 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
292 - fixes for building on OS X (thanks to Ebrahim Mayat for testing)

294 - fixes for building with newer MinGW versions
295 - fix for building with bison 2.4 (#111)
296 - fixed building with libgig installed in a non-standard directory
297 - minor fix in configure for mmsystem.h detection on MinGW
298 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
299 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
300 directory above)
301 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
302 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
303 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
304 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
306 * general changes:
307 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
308 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
309 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
310 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
311 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
312 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
313 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
314 unnecessarily long after an update
315 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
316 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
317 of gigedit)
318 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
319 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
320 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
321 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
322 implementation, which is usually faster)
323 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
324 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
325 VST plugin
326 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
327 only when there are actual changes
328 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
329 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
330 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
331 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
332 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
333 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
334 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
335 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
336 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
337 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
338 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
339 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
340 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
341 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
342 model more strictly
343 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
344 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
345 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
346 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
348 * audio driver:
349 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
350 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
351 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
352 opposed to the LSCP specs
353 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
354 reflected the wrong value
355 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
356 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
357 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
358 jack_client_new
359 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
360 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
361 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
362 (fixes #117)
363 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
364 win64)
365 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
366 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
367 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
368 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
369 energyXT)
370 - VST: changed number of output channels from one stereo to 16
371 stereo
372 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
373 stored in the plugin state
374 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
375 AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
376 (if available)
377 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
378 exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
380 * MIDI driver:
381 - added JACK MIDI driver
382 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
383 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
384 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
385 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
386 CoreMidi or AU
387 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
388 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
389 moving the logic to a non-RT thread
390 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
392 * instruments database:
393 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
394 to the instruments database
395 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
396 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
397 in the instruments database
398 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
399 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
400 instrument database compilable
401 - added instrument database support on Windows
402 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
403 the instruments DB file is located in
404 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
405 databases for each windows user
406 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
407 and then creates an empty DB
408 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
410 * Gigasampler format engine:
411 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
412 while notes were playing
413 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
414 isn't running
415 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
416 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
417 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
418 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
419 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
420 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
421 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
422 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
423 on)
424 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
425 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
426 be played
427 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
428 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
429 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
430 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
431 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
432 defined for the sampler
433 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
434 audio thread isn't running
435 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
436 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
437 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
438 sampler engine anymore
439 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
440 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
441 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
442 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
443 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
444 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
445 instrument-level gig parameters
446 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
447 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
448 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
449 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
450 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
451 note was silent
452 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
453 same time a new instrument was loading
455 * LSCP server:
456 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
457 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
458 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
459 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
460 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
461 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
462 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
464 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
465 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
466 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
468 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
469 was incorrect
470 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
471 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
472 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
473 be triggered respectively
474 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
475 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
476 which will be triggered respectively
477 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
478 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
479 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
480 - hard close of all sockets on exit
481 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
482 driver
484 * Bug fixes:
485 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
486 to start instrument loading after another channel
487 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
488 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
489 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
490 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
491 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
492 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
497 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
498 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
499 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
500 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
501 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
502 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
503 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
504 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
505 plugin was unloaded
506 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
507 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
508 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
509 Windows
512 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
514 * packaging changes:
515 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
516 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
517 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
518 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
520 * general changes:
521 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
522 editor closed
523 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
524 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
525 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
526 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
527 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
528 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
529 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
530 bugs.
531 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
532 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
533 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
534 unaligned 32bit read and shift
535 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
536 output via ASIO)
537 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
538 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
539 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
542 * AUDIO driver:
543 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
545 * MIDI driver:
546 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
548 * LSCP server:
549 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
550 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
551 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
552 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
553 apostrophes as well
554 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
555 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
556 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
557 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
558 running on
560 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
562 * packaging changes:
563 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
564 API header files anymore
565 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
566 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
567 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
568 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
569 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
570 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
571 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
572 parameters
573 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
574 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
575 are now in global_private.h
576 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
577 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
578 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
580 * general changes:
581 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
582 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
583 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
584 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
585 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
586 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
587 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
588 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
589 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
590 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
591 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
592 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
593 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
594 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
595 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
596 drumkits is possible
597 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
598 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
599 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
600 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
601 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
602 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
603 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
604 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
605 controllers
606 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
607 - Implemented new, improved notification system
608 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
609 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
610 - implemented instruments database
611 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
612 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
613 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
614 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
615 startup, added a new LSCP command:
616 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
617 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
618 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
619 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
620 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
621 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
622 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
623 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
624 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
625 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
626 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
627 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
628 setting their own policy and priority
629 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
630 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
631 its output
632 - fixed some minor memory leaks
633 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
634 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
635 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
636 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
637 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
639 * MIDI driver:
640 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
642 * audio driver:
643 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
644 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
645 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
647 * Gigasampler format engine:
648 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
649 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
650 voice starvation for some gigs)
651 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
652 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
653 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
654 command
655 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
656 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
657 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
658 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
659 even if sustain is 100%
660 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
661 noises or crashes
662 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
663 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
664 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
665 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
666 instead of a fix value
667 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
668 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
669 changed
671 * LSCP server:
672 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
673 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
674 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
675 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
676 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
677 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
678 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
679 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
680 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
681 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
688 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
689 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
690 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
691 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
692 settings
693 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
694 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
695 (fixes #57)
697 * Bug fixes:
698 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
699 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
700 channel audio output device"
701 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
702 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
703 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
704 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
705 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
706 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
707 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
708 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
709 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
710 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
711 channel changes
712 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
713 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
714 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
715 an audio output device
716 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
718 * test cases:
719 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
721 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
723 * packaging changes:
724 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
725 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
726 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
727 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
728 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
729 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
730 (Doxygen required)
731 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
732 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
733 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
734 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
735 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
736 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
737 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
738 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
739 messages
740 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
741 MIDI drivers
742 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
743 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
745 * Gigasampler format engine:
746 - extensive synthesis optimization
747 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
748 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
749 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
750 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
751 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
752 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
753 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
754 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
755 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
756 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
757 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
758 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
759 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
760 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
761 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
762 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
763 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
764 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
765 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
766 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
767 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
768 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
769 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
770 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
771 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
772 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
773 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
774 parameter) and crossfade
775 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
776 parameter
777 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
778 messages
779 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
780 instead of the wave chunk
781 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
782 not equal to a power of two
783 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
784 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
785 and lowpass turbo.
786 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
787 16 bits anymore
788 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
789 aftertouch)
790 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
791 amplifying from 0)
793 * LSCP server:
794 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
795 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
796 network activity (fixes bug #26)
797 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
800 * audio driver:
801 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
803 * MIDI driver:
804 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
805 messages several times instead of once
806 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
807 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
808 - added checks for bad MIDI data
810 * linuxsampler application:
811 - show available sampler engine types on startup
813 * general changes:
814 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
815 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
816 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
817 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
818 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
819 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
820 processing of muted channels.
821 - support for sostenuto pedal
822 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
825 - fixed some memory management errors
826 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
827 LSCP commands were executed
828 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
829 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
831 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
833 * packaging changes:
834 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
836 * Gigasampler format engine:
837 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
838 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
839 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
840 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
841 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
842 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
843 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
845 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
847 * packaging changes:
848 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
849 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
850 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
851 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
852 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
853 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
854 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
856 * Gigasampler format engine:
857 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
858 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
859 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
860 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
861 note-off velocity.
862 - revised voice stealing
863 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
864 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
865 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
866 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
867 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
868 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
869 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
870 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
871 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
872 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
873 instrument or audio output device change
875 * LSCP server:
876 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
877 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
878 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
880 * linuxsampler application:
881 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
882 default IP address and port of LSCP server
884 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
886 * initial release
