* fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)

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 * Bug fixes:
27 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
28
29 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
30
31 * packaging changes:
32 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
33 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
34 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
35 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
36 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
37 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
38 (Doxygen required)
39 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
40 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
41 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
42 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
43 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
44 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
45 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
46 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
47 messages
48 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
49 MIDI drivers
50 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
51 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
52
53 * Gigasampler format engine:
54 - extensive synthesis optimization
55 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
56 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
57 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
58 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
59 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
60 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
61 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
62 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
63 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
64 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
65 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
66 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
67 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
68 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
69 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
70 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
71 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
72 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
73 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
74 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
75 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
76 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
77 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
78 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
79 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
80 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
81 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
82 parameter) and crossfade
83 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
84 parameter
85 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
86 messages
87 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
88 instead of the wave chunk
89 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
90 not equal to a power of two
91 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
92 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
93 and lowpass turbo.
94 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
95 16 bits anymore
96 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
97 aftertouch)
98 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
99 amplifying from 0)
100
101 * LSCP server:
102 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
103 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
104 network activity (fixes bug #26)
105 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
106 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
107
108 * audio driver:
109 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
110
111 * MIDI driver:
112 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
113 messages several times instead of once
114 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
115 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
116 - added checks for bad MIDI data
117
118 * linuxsampler application:
119 - show available sampler engine types on startup
120
121 * general changes:
122 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
123 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
124 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
125 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
126 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
127 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
128 processing of muted channels.
129 - support for sostenuto pedal
130 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
131 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
132 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
133 - fixed some memory management errors
134 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
135 LSCP commands were executed
136 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
137 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
138
139 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
140
141 * packaging changes:
142 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
143
144 * Gigasampler format engine:
145 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
146 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
147 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
148 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
149 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
150 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
151 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
152
153 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
154
155 * packaging changes:
156 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
157 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
158 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
159 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
160 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
161 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
162 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
163
164 * Gigasampler format engine:
165 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
166 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
167 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
168 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
169 note-off velocity.
170 - revised voice stealing
171 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
172 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
173 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
174 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
175 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
176 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
177 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
178 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
179 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
180 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
181 instrument or audio output device change
182
183 * LSCP server:
184 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
185 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
186 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
187
188 * linuxsampler application:
189 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
190 default IP address and port of LSCP server
191
192 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
193
194 * initial release
