4 - fixed building with newer MinGW-w64
5 - Mac OS X: support the new dir for Core Audio SDK
6 - Mac OS X: fixed building outside source directory
7 - made sure all source files for hostplugins are included when
8 doing "make dist"
9 - removed empty directories left from the cvs to svn migration
10 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.6.1
11 - another "make dist" fix, for the LV2 plugin
12 - made --enable-pthread-testcancel default on Mac OS X
13 - minor Makefile fix for building lscpparser when build and source
14 directories are separate
15 - Mac OS X: made it possible to specify plugin installation dir to
16 configure
17 - Mac OS X: Makefile fix for the install-strip target

21 gcc 4.7 and C++11
22 - modernized configure script
23 - fixed linkage error when building with
24 LDFLAGS="-Wl,--no-undefined" (#190)
26 * general changes:
27 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
28 the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
29 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
30 respective profiling code is currently broken
31 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
32 "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
33 where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
34 (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
35 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
36 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
37 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
38 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
39 the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
40 effect type is)
41 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
42 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
43 the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
44 effect type is)
45 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
46 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512
47 (as suggested by Alex Stone)
48 - implemented sine LFO, pulse LFO and saw LFO
49 - experimental support for per voice equalization
50 - added command line option --exec-after-init
51 - Introduced new C++ API method:
52 EngineChannel::InstrumentFileName(int index)
53 allowing to retrieve the whole list of files used for the loaded
54 instrument on an engine channel (a.k.a. part). Some GigaStudio
55 instruments for example are splitted over several files like
56 "Foo.gig", "Foo.gx01", "Foo.gx02", ...
57 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxVoices().
58 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxStreams().
59 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::SetGlobalMaxVoices().

241 - AU bugfix: failed to destroy its audio/MIDI devices
242 - Listen to all interfaces on Mac OS X (INADDR_ANY)
243 - VST bugfix: If the host called resume() before and after
244 changing sample rate or block size, the number of channels was
245 incorrectly set to two. This caused silence in Cubase 5.
246 - save engine type (gig, sfz or sf2) in plugin state

265 - DSSI bugfix: it wasn't possible to change engine type. The MIDI
266 port and audio channel routing for DSSI plugins are now visible.
267 - LV2: use urid and atom extensions instead of deprecated uri-map
268 and event
269 - LV2: lv2 package 1.0 is now required to build the LV2 plugin

286 to them a la JACK, via the usual sampler APIs
287 - CoreMIDI: added driver specific port parameter "AUTO_BIND", if enabled
288 the driver will automatically connect to other CoreMIDI clients' ports
289 (e.g. external MIDI devices being attached to the Mac)
291 * audio driver:
292 - ASIO driver fixes for newer gcc versions (fix from PortAudio)

341 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded
342 - Mac OS X: fixed name collision of enum in EffectControl and
343 wrong name of destructor in AudioOutputDeviceCoreAudio.cpp

346 it caused hanging threads on Windows
347 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
348 after MIDI/audio device creation failure
349 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
350 instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
351 took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective
352 instrument was completely reloaded again.
353 - fixed handling of rapid bank select and program change messages
354 sent to the same sampler channel (patch from the Open Octave
355 project, slightly adjusted)

372 (labelled "Disk stream not available in time")
374 Version 1.0.0 (31 July 2009)
376 * packaging changes:
377 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,

392 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
393 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
394 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
396 * general changes:
397 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
398 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
399 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
400 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
401 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
402 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
403 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
404 unnecessarily long after an update

406 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
407 of gigedit)
408 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
409 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
410 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation

421 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
422 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
423 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
424 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
425 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
426 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
427 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
428 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
429 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
430 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
431 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
432 model more strictly
433 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
434 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
435 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
436 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
438 * audio driver:
439 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
440 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
441 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
442 opposed to the LSCP specs
443 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
444 reflected the wrong value
445 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
446 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
447 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
448 jack_client_new
449 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
450 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
451 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
452 (fixes #117)
453 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
454 win64)
455 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
456 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
457 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
458 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
459 energyXT)
460 - VST: changed number of output channels from one stereo to 16
461 stereo
462 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
463 stored in the plugin state
464 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
465 AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
466 (if available)
467 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
468 exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
470 * MIDI driver:
471 - added JACK MIDI driver
472 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
473 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
474 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
475 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
476 CoreMidi or AU
477 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
478 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
479 moving the logic to a non-RT thread
480 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
482 * instruments database:
483 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
484 to the instruments database
485 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
486 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
487 in the instruments database
488 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
489 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
490 instrument database compilable
491 - added instrument database support on Windows
492 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
493 the instruments DB file is located in
494 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
495 databases for each windows user
496 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
497 and then creates an empty DB
498 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
500 * Gigasampler format engine:
501 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
502 while notes were playing
503 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
504 isn't running
505 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
506 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
507 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
508 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
509 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
510 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
511 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
512 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
513 on)
514 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
515 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
516 be played
517 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
518 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
519 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
520 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
521 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
522 defined for the sampler
523 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
524 audio thread isn't running
525 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
526 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
527 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
528 sampler engine anymore
529 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
530 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
531 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
532 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
533 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
534 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
535 instrument-level gig parameters
536 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
537 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
538 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
539 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
540 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
541 note was silent
542 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
543 same time a new instrument was loading
545 * LSCP server:
546 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
547 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
548 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
549 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
550 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
551 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
552 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
554 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
555 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
556 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
558 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
559 was incorrect
560 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
561 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
562 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
563 be triggered respectively
564 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
565 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
566 which will be triggered respectively
567 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
568 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
569 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
570 - hard close of all sockets on exit
571 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
572 driver
574 * Bug fixes:
575 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
576 to start instrument loading after another channel
577 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
578 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
579 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
580 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
581 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
582 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
587 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
588 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
589 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
590 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
591 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
592 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
593 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
594 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
595 plugin was unloaded
596 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
597 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
598 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
599 Windows
602 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
604 * packaging changes:
605 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
606 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
607 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
608 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
610 * general changes:
611 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
612 editor closed
613 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
614 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
615 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
616 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
617 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
618 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
619 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
620 bugs.
621 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
622 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
623 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
624 unaligned 32bit read and shift
625 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
626 output via ASIO)
627 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
628 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
629 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
632 * AUDIO driver:
633 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
635 * MIDI driver:
636 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
638 * LSCP server:
639 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
640 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
641 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
642 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
643 apostrophes as well
644 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
645 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
646 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
647 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
648 running on
650 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
652 * packaging changes:
653 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
654 API header files anymore
655 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
656 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
657 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
658 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
659 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
660 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
661 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
662 parameters
663 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
664 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
665 are now in global_private.h
666 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
667 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
668 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
670 * general changes:
671 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
672 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
673 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
674 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
675 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
676 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
677 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
678 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
679 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
680 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
681 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
682 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
683 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
684 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
685 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
686 drumkits is possible
687 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
688 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
689 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
690 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
691 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
692 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
693 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
694 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
695 controllers
696 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
697 - Implemented new, improved notification system
698 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
699 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
700 - implemented instruments database
701 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
702 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
703 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
704 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
705 startup, added a new LSCP command:
706 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
707 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
708 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
709 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
710 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
711 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
712 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
713 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
714 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
715 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
716 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
717 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
718 setting their own policy and priority
719 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
720 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
721 its output
722 - fixed some minor memory leaks
723 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
724 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
725 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
726 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
727 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
729 * MIDI driver:
730 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
732 * audio driver:
733 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
734 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
735 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
737 * Gigasampler format engine:
738 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
739 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
740 voice starvation for some gigs)
741 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
742 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
743 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
744 command
745 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
746 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
747 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
748 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
749 even if sustain is 100%
750 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
751 noises or crashes
752 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
753 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
754 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
755 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
756 instead of a fix value
757 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
758 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
759 changed
761 * LSCP server:
762 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
763 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
764 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
765 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
766 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
767 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
768 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
769 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
770 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
771 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
778 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
779 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
780 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
781 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
782 settings
783 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
784 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
785 (fixes #57)
787 * Bug fixes:
788 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
789 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
790 channel audio output device"
791 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
792 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
793 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
794 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
795 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
796 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
797 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
798 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
799 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
800 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
801 channel changes
802 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
803 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
804 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
805 an audio output device
806 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
808 * test cases:
809 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
811 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
813 * packaging changes:
814 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
815 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
816 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
817 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
818 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
819 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
820 (Doxygen required)
821 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
822 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
823 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
824 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
825 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
826 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
827 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
828 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
829 messages
830 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
831 MIDI drivers
832 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
833 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
835 * Gigasampler format engine:
836 - extensive synthesis optimization
837 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
838 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
839 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
840 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
841 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
842 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
843 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
844 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
845 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
846 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
847 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
848 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
849 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
850 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
851 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
852 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
853 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
854 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
855 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
856 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
857 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
858 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
859 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
860 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
861 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
862 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
863 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
864 parameter) and crossfade
865 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
866 parameter
867 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
868 messages
869 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
870 instead of the wave chunk
871 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
872 not equal to a power of two
873 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
874 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
875 and lowpass turbo.
876 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
877 16 bits anymore
878 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
879 aftertouch)
880 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
881 amplifying from 0)
883 * LSCP server:
884 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
885 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
886 network activity (fixes bug #26)
887 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
890 * audio driver:
891 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
893 * MIDI driver:
894 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
895 messages several times instead of once
896 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
897 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
898 - added checks for bad MIDI data
900 * linuxsampler application:
901 - show available sampler engine types on startup
903 * general changes:
904 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
905 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
906 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
907 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
908 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
909 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
910 processing of muted channels.
911 - support for sostenuto pedal
912 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
915 - fixed some memory management errors
916 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
917 LSCP commands were executed
918 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
919 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
921 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
923 * packaging changes:
924 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
926 * Gigasampler format engine:
927 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
928 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
929 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
930 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
931 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
932 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
933 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
935 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
937 * packaging changes:
938 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
939 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
940 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
941 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
942 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
943 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
944 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
946 * Gigasampler format engine:
947 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
948 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
949 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
950 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
951 note-off velocity.
952 - revised voice stealing
953 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
954 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
955 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
956 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
957 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
958 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
