* Bugfix: When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT"
  type, the instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples,
  however it still took the full preloading time and on 1st program
  change the respective instrument was completely reloaded again.
* Bumped version to 1.0.0.svn15

1 Version CVS HEAD (?)
2
3 * plugin changes:
4 - LV2 Persist + Files support (patch by David Robillard)
5
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
21
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
27 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
28 "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
29 where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
30 (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
31 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
32 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
33 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
34 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
35 the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
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
40 effect type is)
41 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
42 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512
43 (as suggested by Alex Stone)
44 - implemented sine LFO, pulse LFO and saw LFO
45
46 * Gigasampler format engine:
47 - implemented the "round robin keyboard" dimension

253 channel to a different engine type
254 - fixed crash when deleting a sampler channel or changing engine
255 type while an instrument load was in progress
256 - bugfix: playing a note while changing the instrument could cause
257 a crash, or give "Handing back unknown region" error messages
258 - bugfix: calling SET VOICES (which Fantasia does on start and
259 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded
260 - Mac OS X: fixed name collision of enum in EffectControl and
261 wrong name of destructor in AudioOutputDeviceCoreAudio.cpp
262 - Mac OS X: fixed hanging threads
263 - Windows: disabled the previous thread fix on non-Mac systems, as
264 it caused hanging threads on Windows
265 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
266 after MIDI/audio device creation failure
267 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
268 instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
269 took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective
270 instrument was completely reloaded again.
271
272 Version 1.0.0 (31 July 2009)
273
274 * packaging changes:
275 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
276 causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
277 "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
278 (patch by Alexis Ballier)
279 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
280 - fixes for building on OS X (thanks to Ebrahim Mayat for testing)
281 - fixed configure so it detects x86_64 (#107)
282 - fixes for building with newer MinGW versions
283 - fix for building with bison 2.4 (#111)
284 - fixed building with libgig installed in a non-standard directory
285 - minor fix in configure for mmsystem.h detection on MinGW
286 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
287 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
288 directory above)
289 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
290 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
291 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
292 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
293
294 * general changes:
295 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
296 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
297 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
298 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
299 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
300 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
301 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
302 unnecessarily long after an update
303 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
304 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
305 of gigedit)
306 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
307 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
308 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
309 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
310 implementation, which is usually faster)
311 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
312 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
313 VST plugin
314 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
315 only when there are actual changes
316 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
317 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
318 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
319 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
320 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
321 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
322 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
323 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
324 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
325 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
326 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
327 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
328 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
329 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
330 model more strictly
331 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
332 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
333 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
334 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
335
336 * audio driver:
337 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
338 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
339 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
340 opposed to the LSCP specs
341 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
342 reflected the wrong value
343 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
344 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
345 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
346 jack_client_new
347 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
348 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
349 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
350 (fixes #117)
351 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
352 win64)
353 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
354 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
355 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
356 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
357 energyXT)
358 - VST: changed number of output channels from one stereo to 16
359 stereo
360 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
361 stored in the plugin state
362 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
363 AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
364 (if available)
365 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
366 exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
367
368 * MIDI driver:
369 - added JACK MIDI driver
370 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
371 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
372 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
373 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
374 CoreMidi or AU
375 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
376 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
377 moving the logic to a non-RT thread
378 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
379
380 * instruments database:
381 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
382 to the instruments database
383 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database

385 in the instruments database
386 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
387 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
388 instrument database compilable
389 - added instrument database support on Windows
390 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
391 the instruments DB file is located in
392 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
393 databases for each windows user
394 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
395 and then creates an empty DB
396 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
397
398 * Gigasampler format engine:
399 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
400 while notes were playing
401 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
402 isn't running
403 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
404 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
405 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
406 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
407 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
408 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
409 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
410 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
411 on)
412 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
413 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
414 be played
415 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
416 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
417 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
418 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
419 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
420 defined for the sampler
421 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
422 audio thread isn't running
423 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
424 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
425 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
426 sampler engine anymore
427 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
428 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
429 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
430 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
431 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
432 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
433 instrument-level gig parameters
434 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
435 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
436 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
437 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
438 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
439 note was silent
440 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
441 same time a new instrument was loading
442
443 * LSCP server:
444 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
445 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
446 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
447 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
448 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
449 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
450 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
451 SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
452 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
453 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
454 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
455 KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
456 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
457 was incorrect
458 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
459 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
460 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
461 be triggered respectively
462 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
463 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
464 which will be triggered respectively
465 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
466 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
467 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
468 - hard close of all sockets on exit
469 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
470 driver
471
472 * Bug fixes:
473 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
474 to start instrument loading after another channel
475 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
476 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
477 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
478 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
479 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
480 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
481 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
482 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
483 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
484 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
485 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
486 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
487 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
488 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
489 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
490 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
491 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
492 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
493 plugin was unloaded
494 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
495 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor

500 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
501
502 * packaging changes:
503 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
504 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
505 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
506 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
507
508 * general changes:
509 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
510 editor closed
511 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
512 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
513 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
514 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
515 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
516 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
517 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
518 bugs.
519 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
520 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
521 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
522 unaligned 32bit read and shift
523 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
524 output via ASIO)
525 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
526 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
527 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
528 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
529
530 * AUDIO driver:
531 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
532
533 * MIDI driver:
534 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
535
536 * LSCP server:
537 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
538 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
539 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
540 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
541 apostrophes as well
542 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
543 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
544 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
545 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
546 running on
547
548 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
549
550 * packaging changes:
551 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
552 API header files anymore
553 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
554 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
555 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
556 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
557 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
558 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
559 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
560 parameters
561 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
562 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
563 are now in global_private.h
564 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
565 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
566 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
567
568 * general changes:
569 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
570 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
571 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
572 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
573 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
574 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
575 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
576 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
577 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
578 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
579 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
580 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
581 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
582 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
583 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
584 drumkits is possible
585 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
586 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
587 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
588 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
589 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
590 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
591 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
592 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
593 controllers
594 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
595 - Implemented new, improved notification system
596 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
597 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
598 - implemented instruments database
599 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
600 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
601 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
602 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
603 startup, added a new LSCP command:
604 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
605 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
606 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
607 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
608 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
609 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
610 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
611 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
612 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
613 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
614 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
615 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
616 setting their own policy and priority
617 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
618 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
619 its output
620 - fixed some minor memory leaks
621 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
622 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
623 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
624 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
625 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
626
627 * MIDI driver:
628 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
629
630 * audio driver:
631 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
632 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
633 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
634
635 * Gigasampler format engine:
636 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
637 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
638 voice starvation for some gigs)
639 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
640 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
641 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
642 command
643 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
644 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
645 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
646 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
647 even if sustain is 100%
648 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
649 noises or crashes
650 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
651 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
652 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
653 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
654 instead of a fix value
655 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
656 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
657 changed
658
659 * LSCP server:
660 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
661 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
662 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
663 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
664 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
665 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
666 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
667 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
668 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
669 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
670 "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
671 "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
672 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
673 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
674 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
675 "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
676 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
677 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
678 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
679 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
680 settings
681 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
682 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
683 (fixes #57)
684
685 * Bug fixes:
686 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
687 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
688 channel audio output device"
689 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
690 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
691 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
692 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
693 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
694 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
695 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
696 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
697 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
698 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
699 channel changes
700 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
701 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
702 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
703 an audio output device
704 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
705
706 * test cases:
707 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
708
709 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
710
711 * packaging changes:
712 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
713 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
714 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
715 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
716 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
717 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
718 (Doxygen required)
719 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
720 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
721 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
722 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
723 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
724 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
725 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
726 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
727 messages
728 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
729 MIDI drivers
730 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
731 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
732
733 * Gigasampler format engine:
734 - extensive synthesis optimization
735 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
736 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
737 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
738 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
739 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
740 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
741 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
742 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
743 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
744 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
745 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
746 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
747 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
748 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
749 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
750 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
751 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
752 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
753 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
754 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
755 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
756 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
757 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
758 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
759 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
760 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
761 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
762 parameter) and crossfade
763 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
764 parameter
765 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
766 messages
767 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
768 instead of the wave chunk
769 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
770 not equal to a power of two
771 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
772 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
773 and lowpass turbo.
774 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
775 16 bits anymore
776 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
777 aftertouch)
778 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
779 amplifying from 0)
780
781 * LSCP server:
782 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
783 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
784 network activity (fixes bug #26)
785 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
786 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
787
788 * audio driver:
789 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
790
791 * MIDI driver:
792 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
793 messages several times instead of once
794 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
795 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
796 - added checks for bad MIDI data
797
798 * linuxsampler application:
799 - show available sampler engine types on startup
800
801 * general changes:
802 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
803 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
804 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
805 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
806 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
807 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
808 processing of muted channels.
809 - support for sostenuto pedal
810 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
811 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
812 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
813 - fixed some memory management errors
814 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
815 LSCP commands were executed
816 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
817 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
818
819 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
820
821 * packaging changes:
822 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
823
824 * Gigasampler format engine:
825 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
826 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
827 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
828 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
829 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
830 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
831 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
832
833 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
834
835 * packaging changes:
836 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
837 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
838 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
839 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
840 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
841 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
842 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
843
844 * Gigasampler format engine:
845 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
846 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
847 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
848 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
849 note-off velocity.
850 - revised voice stealing
851 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
852 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
853 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
854 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
855 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
856 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
857 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
858 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
859 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
860 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
861 instrument or audio output device change
862
863 * LSCP server:
864 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
865 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
866 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
867
868 * linuxsampler application:
869 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
870 default IP address and port of LSCP server
871
872 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
873
874 * initial release
