* plugin bugfix: instrument loading hang when the plugin was loaded a
  second time (this time it's for Linux and Mac, previous similar fix
  was for Windows)
* thread safety fixes for the instrument loading thread
* MME driver: removed compiler warning
* LV2: fixed invalid realtime statement in plugin metadata

1 Version CVS HEAD (?)
3 * plugin changes:
4 - LV2 "state" extension support (patch by David Robillard)
6 * packaging changes:
7 - fixed building with newer MinGW-w64
8 - Mac OS X: support the new dir for Core Audio SDK
9 - Mac OS X: fixed building outside source directory
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
13 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.6.1
14 - another "make dist" fix, for the LV2 plugin
15 - made --enable-pthread-testcancel default on Mac OS X
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

302 - bugfix: calling SET VOICES (which Fantasia does on start and
303 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded
304 - Mac OS X: fixed name collision of enum in EffectControl and
305 wrong name of destructor in AudioOutputDeviceCoreAudio.cpp
306 - Mac OS X: fixed hanging threads
307 - Windows: disabled the previous thread fix on non-Mac systems, as
308 it caused hanging threads on Windows
309 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
310 after MIDI/audio device creation failure
311 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
312 instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
313 took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective

316 sent to the same sampler channel (patch from the Open Octave
317 project, slightly adjusted)

340 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
341 directory above)
342 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
343 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
344 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
345 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
347 * general changes:
348 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
349 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
350 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
351 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
352 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
353 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
354 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
355 unnecessarily long after an update

357 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
358 of gigedit)
359 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
360 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
361 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
362 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
363 implementation, which is usually faster)
364 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
365 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
366 VST plugin
367 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
368 only when there are actual changes

370 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
371 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
372 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
373 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
374 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
375 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
376 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
377 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
378 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
379 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
380 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
381 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
382 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
383 model more strictly
384 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
385 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
386 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
387 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
389 * audio driver:
390 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
391 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
392 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
393 opposed to the LSCP specs
394 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
395 reflected the wrong value
396 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
397 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
398 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
399 jack_client_new

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