- added forgotten notice in ChangeLog
- fixed LIST MIDI_INSTRUMENTS

1 Version CVS HEAD (?)
2
3 * general changes:
4 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
5 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
6 (MIDI bank MSB, MIDI bank LSB, MIDI program) triplets with arbitrary
7 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
8 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
9 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
10 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
11 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
12 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
13 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
14 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
15 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
16 the instrument files
17
18 * MIDI driver:
19 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
20
21 * Gigasampler format engine:
22 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
23 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
24 voice starvation for some gigs)
25
26 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
27
28 * packaging changes:
29 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
30 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
31 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
32 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
33 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
34 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
35 (Doxygen required)
36 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
37 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
38 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
39 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
40 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
41 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
42 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
43 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
44 messages
45 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
46 MIDI drivers
47 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
48 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
49
50 * Gigasampler format engine:
51 - extensive synthesis optimization
52 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
53 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
54 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
55 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
56 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
57 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
58 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
59 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
60 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
61 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
62 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
63 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
64 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
65 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
66 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
67 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
68 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
69 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
70 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
71 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
72 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
73 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
74 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
75 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
76 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
77 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
78 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
79 parameter) and crossfade
80 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
81 parameter
82 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
83 messages
84 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
85 instead of the wave chunk
86 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
87 not equal to a power of two
88 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
89 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
90 and lowpass turbo.
91 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
92 16 bits anymore
93 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
94 aftertouch)
95 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
96 amplifying from 0)
97
98 * LSCP server:
99 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
100 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
101 network activity (fixes bug #26)
102 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
103 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
104
105 * audio driver:
106 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
107
108 * MIDI driver:
109 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
110 messages several times instead of once
111 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
112 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
113 - added checks for bad MIDI data
114
115 * linuxsampler application:
116 - show available sampler engine types on startup
117
118 * general changes:
119 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
120 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
121 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
122 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
123 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
124 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
125 processing of muted channels.
126 - support for sostenuto pedal
127 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
128 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
129 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
130 - fixed some memory management errors
131 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
132 LSCP commands were executed
133 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
134 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
135
136 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
137
138 * packaging changes:
139 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
140
141 * Gigasampler format engine:
142 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
143 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
144 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
145 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
146 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
147 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
148 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
149
150 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
151
152 * packaging changes:
153 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
154 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
155 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
156 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
157 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
158 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
159 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
160
161 * Gigasampler format engine:
162 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
163 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
164 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
165 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
166 note-off velocity.
167 - revised voice stealing
168 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
169 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
170 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
171 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
172 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
173 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
174 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
175 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
176 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
177 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
178 instrument or audio output device change
179
180 * LSCP server:
181 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
182 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
183 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
184
185 * linuxsampler application:
186 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
187 default IP address and port of LSCP server
188
189 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
190
191 * initial release
