37
38 * general changes:
39 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
40 the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
41 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
42 respective profiling code is currently broken
43 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
44 "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
45 where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
46 (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
47 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
48 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
49 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
50 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
51 the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
52 effect type is)
53 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
54 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
55 the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
56 effect type is)
57 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
58 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512
59 (as suggested by Alex Stone)
60 - implemented sine LFO, pulse LFO and saw LFO
61 - experimental support for per voice equalization
62 - added command line option --exec-after-init
63 - Introduced new C++ API method:
64 EngineChannel::InstrumentFileName(int index)
65 allowing to retrieve the whole list of files used for the loaded
66 instrument on an engine channel (a.k.a. part). Some GigaStudio
67 instruments for example are splitted over several files like
68 "Foo.gig", "Foo.gx01", "Foo.gx02", ...
69 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxVoices().
70 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxStreams().
71 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::SetGlobalMaxVoices().
72 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::SetGlobalMaxStreams().
73 - Various "const" and "restrict" optimizations.
74 - all engines: add pan CC value to instrument pan parameter before
75 applying panning, instead of using two separate pan functions in
76 series (#182)
77 - added a lock guard class for exception safe mutex handling and
78 used it everywhere appropriate
79 - Immediately apply scale tuning changes to active voices.
80 - Exposed scale tuning to C++ API (along to the already existing standard
81 SysEx way).
82 - lsatomic.h fixes: seq_cst load and store were suboptimal for x86
83 and broken for ppc64. (Seq_cst loads and stores are actually not
84 used in LS, so the bug wasn't noticable.)
85 - lsatomic.h: added ARMv7 support
86 - Added support for multiple MIDI input ports per sampler channel (and
87 added various new C++ methods for this new feature / design change, old
88 C++ API methods for managing SamplerChannel's MIDI inputs are now marked
89 as deprecated but are still there and should provide full behavior
90 backward compatibility).
91 - AbstractEngine::GSChecksum(): don't allocate memory on the stack (was
92 unsafe and caused compilation error with clang 2.x).
93 - Bugfix: only process the latest MIDI program change event.
94
95 * Gigasampler format engine:
96 - implemented the "round robin keyboard" dimension
97 - fixed round robin and random dimensions for cases when number of
98 dimension zones is not a power of two
99 - made round robin use a counter for each region instead of each
100 key
101 - bugfix: pitch LFO controller "internal+aftertouch" was broken
102 - bugfix: filter keyboard tracking was broken
103 - filter performance fix (an unnecessary copy was made of the
104 filter parameters in each sub fragment)
105 - handle special case when pan parameter in gig file has max or
106 min value
107 - Exclusive Groups: don't ever stop voices of the same note,
108 doesn't sound naturally with a drumkit
109 - fixed EG1 modulation when attack or release is zero
110
111 * SFZ format engine:
112 - Initial implementation (not usable yet)

123 more compatible
124 - added support for trigger=release and rt_decay
125 - added support for off_mode=normal
126 - added support for random, seq_position, seq_length and volume

282 - VST bugfix: If the host called resume() before and after
283 changing sample rate or block size, the number of channels was
284 incorrectly set to two. This caused silence in Cubase 5.
285 - save engine type (gig, sfz or sf2) in plugin state

327 the driver will automatically connect to other CoreMIDI clients' ports
328 (e.g. external MIDI devices being attached to the Mac)
329 - added support for MIDI note on velocity filter
330 - CoreMIDI: fixed memory deallocation error
331 - Fixed variable underflow in VirtualMidiDevice, which caused graphical

394 - bugfix: calling SET VOICES (which Fantasia does on start and
395 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded

431
432 Version 1.0.0 (31 July 2009)
433
434 * packaging changes:
435 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
436 causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
437 "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
438 (patch by Alexis Ballier)
439 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
440 - fixes for building on OS X (thanks to Ebrahim Mayat for testing)
441 - fixed configure so it detects x86_64 (#107)
442 - fixes for building with newer MinGW versions
443 - fix for building with bison 2.4 (#111)
444 - fixed building with libgig installed in a non-standard directory
445 - minor fix in configure for mmsystem.h detection on MinGW
446 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
447 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
448 directory above)
449 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
450 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
451 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
452 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
453
454 * general changes:
455 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
456 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
457 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
458 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
459 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
460 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
461 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
462 unnecessarily long after an update
463 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
464 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
465 of gigedit)
466 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
467 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
468 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
469 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
470 implementation, which is usually faster)
471 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
472 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
473 VST plugin
474 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
475 only when there are actual changes
476 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
477 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
478 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
479 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
480 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
481 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
482 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
483 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
484 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
485 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
486 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
487 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
488 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
489 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
490 model more strictly
491 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
492 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
493 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
494 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
495 - updated linuxsampler man page
496
497 * audio driver:
498 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
499 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
500 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
501 opposed to the LSCP specs
502 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
503 reflected the wrong value
504 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
505 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
506 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
507 jack_client_new
508 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
509 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
510 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
511 (fixes #117)
512 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
513 win64)
514 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
515 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
516 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
517 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
518 energyXT)
519 - VST: changed number of output channels from one stereo to 16
520 stereo
521 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
522 stored in the plugin state
523 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
524 AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
525 (if available)
526 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
527 exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
528
529 * MIDI driver:
530 - added JACK MIDI driver
531 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
532 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
533 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
534 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
535 CoreMidi or AU
536 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
537 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
538 moving the logic to a non-RT thread
539 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
540
541 * instruments database:
542 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
543 to the instruments database
544 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
545 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
546 in the instruments database
547 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
548 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
549 instrument database compilable
550 - added instrument database support on Windows
551 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
552 the instruments DB file is located in
553 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
554 databases for each windows user
555 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
556 and then creates an empty DB
557 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
558
559 * Gigasampler format engine:
560 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
561 while notes were playing
562 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
563 isn't running
564 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
565 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
566 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
567 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
568 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
569 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
570 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
571 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
572 on)
573 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
574 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
575 be played
576 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
577 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
578 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
579 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
580 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
581 defined for the sampler
582 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
583 audio thread isn't running
584 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
585 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
586 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
587 sampler engine anymore
588 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
589 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
590 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
591 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
592 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
593 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
594 instrument-level gig parameters
595 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
596 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
597 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
598 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
599 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
600 note was silent
601 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
602 same time a new instrument was loading
603
604 * LSCP server:
605 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
606 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
607 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
608 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
609 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
610 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
611 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
612 SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
613 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
614 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
615 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
616 KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
617 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
618 was incorrect
619 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
620 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
621 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
622 be triggered respectively
623 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
624 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
625 which will be triggered respectively
626 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
627 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
628 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
629 - hard close of all sockets on exit
630 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
631 driver
632
633 * Bug fixes:
634 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
635 to start instrument loading after another channel
636 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
637 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
638 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
639 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
640 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
641 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
642 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
643 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
644 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
645 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
646 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
647 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
648 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
649 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
650 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
651 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
652 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
653 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
654 plugin was unloaded
655 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
656 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
657 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
658 Windows
659
660
661 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
662
663 * packaging changes:
664 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
665 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
666 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
667 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
668
669 * general changes:
670 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
671 editor closed
672 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
673 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
674 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
675 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
676 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
677 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
678 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
679 bugs.
680 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
681 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
682 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
683 unaligned 32bit read and shift
684 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
685 output via ASIO)
686 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
687 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
688 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
689 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
690
691 * AUDIO driver:
692 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
693
694 * MIDI driver:
695 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
696
697 * LSCP server:
698 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
699 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
700 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
701 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
702 apostrophes as well
703 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
704 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
705 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
706 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
707 running on
708
709 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
710
711 * packaging changes:
712 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
713 API header files anymore
714 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
715 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
716 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
717 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
718 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
719 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
720 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
721 parameters
722 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
723 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
724 are now in global_private.h
725 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
726 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
727 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
728
729 * general changes:
730 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
731 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
732 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
733 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
734 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
735 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
736 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
737 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
738 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
739 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
740 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
741 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
742 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
743 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
744 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
745 drumkits is possible
746 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
747 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
748 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
749 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
750 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
751 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
752 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
753 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
754 controllers
755 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
756 - Implemented new, improved notification system
757 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
758 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
759 - implemented instruments database
760 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
761 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
762 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
763 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
764 startup, added a new LSCP command:
765 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
766 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
767 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
768 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
769 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
770 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
771 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
772 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
773 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
774 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
775 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
776 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
777 setting their own policy and priority
778 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
779 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
780 its output
781 - fixed some minor memory leaks
782 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
783 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
784 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
785 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
786 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
787
788 * MIDI driver:
789 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
790
791 * audio driver:
792 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
793 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
794 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
795
796 * Gigasampler format engine:
797 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
798 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
799 voice starvation for some gigs)
800 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
801 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
802 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
803 command
804 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
805 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
806 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
807 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
808 even if sustain is 100%
809 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
810 noises or crashes
811 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
812 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
813 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
814 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
815 instead of a fix value
816 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
817 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
818 changed
819
820 * LSCP server:
821 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
822 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
823 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
824 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
825 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
826 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
827 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
828 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
829 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
830 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
831 "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
832 "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
833 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
834 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
835 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
836 "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
837 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
838 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
839 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
840 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
841 settings
842 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
843 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
844 (fixes #57)
845
846 * Bug fixes:
847 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
848 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
849 channel audio output device"
850 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
851 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
852 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
853 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
854 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
855 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
856 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
857 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
858 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
859 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
860 channel changes
861 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
862 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
863 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
864 an audio output device
865 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
866
867 * test cases:
868 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
869
870 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
871
872 * packaging changes:
873 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
874 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
875 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
876 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
877 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
878 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
879 (Doxygen required)
880 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
881 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
882 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
883 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
884 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
885 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
886 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
887 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
888 messages
889 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
890 MIDI drivers
891 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
892 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
893
894 * Gigasampler format engine:
895 - extensive synthesis optimization
896 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
897 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
898 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
899 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
900 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
901 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
902 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
903 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
904 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
905 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
906 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
907 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
908 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
909 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
910 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
911 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
912 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
913 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
914 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
915 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
916 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
917 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
918 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
919 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
920 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
921 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
922 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
923 parameter) and crossfade
924 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
925 parameter
926 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
927 messages
928 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
929 instead of the wave chunk
930 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
931 not equal to a power of two
932 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
933 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
934 and lowpass turbo.
935 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
936 16 bits anymore
937 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
938 aftertouch)
939 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
940 amplifying from 0)
941
942 * LSCP server:
943 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
944 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
945 network activity (fixes bug #26)
946 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
947 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
948
949 * audio driver:
950 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
951
952 * MIDI driver:
953 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
954 messages several times instead of once
955 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
956 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
957 - added checks for bad MIDI data
958
959 * linuxsampler application:
960 - show available sampler engine types on startup
961
962 * general changes:
963 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
964 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
965 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
966 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
967 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
968 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
969 processing of muted channels.
970 - support for sostenuto pedal
971 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
972 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
973 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
974 - fixed some memory management errors
975 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
976 LSCP commands were executed
977 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
978 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
979
980 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
981
982 * packaging changes:
983 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
984
985 * Gigasampler format engine:
986 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
987 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
988 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
989 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
990 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
991 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
992 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
993
994 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
995
996 * packaging changes:
997 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
998 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
999 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
1000 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
1001 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
1002 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
1003 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
1004
1005 * Gigasampler format engine:
1006 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
1007 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
1008 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
1009 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
1010 note-off velocity.
1011 - revised voice stealing
1012 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
1013 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
1014 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
1015 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
1016 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
1017 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
1018 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
1019 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
1020 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
1021 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
1022 instrument or audio output device change
1023
1024 * LSCP server:
1025 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
1026 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
1027 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
1028
1029 * linuxsampler application:
1030 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
1031 default IP address and port of LSCP server
1032
1033 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
1034
1035 * initial release
