* Mac OS X: Makefile fix for the install-strip target

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
45 * Gigasampler format engine:
46 - implemented the "round robin keyboard" dimension
47 - fixed round robin and random dimensions for cases when number of
48 dimension zones is not a power of two

59 - allow non-numerical key values ("C#4" for example)
60 - "key" opcode now sets pitch_keycenter too
61 - fixed error when unloading instrument with same sample used by
62 multiple regions
63 - added some opcode aliases, like loopmode for loop_mode, to be
64 more compatible

88 and highpass. 1, 2, 4 and 6 pole filters. Opcodes: fil_type,
89 cutoff, resonance, fil_veltrack, fil_keytrack, fil_keycenter,
90 cutoff_cc, cutoff_chanaft.
91 - bugfix: zero ampeg_sustain didn't work
92 - added support for velocity effect on amplifier envelope time
93 (ampeg_vel2attack, ampeg_vel2decay, ampeg_vel2sustain and

111 * Host plugins:
112 - AU bugfix: failed to destroy its audio/MIDI devices
113 - Listen to all interfaces on Mac OS X (INADDR_ANY)
114 - VST bugfix: If the host called resume() before and after
115 changing sample rate or block size, the number of channels was
116 incorrectly set to two. This caused silence in Cubase 5.

121 stereo
122 - VST: made it possible to build the VST plugin for Mac
123 - AU: link AU plugin dynamically if --disable-shared isn't
124 specified
125
126 * MIDI driver:
127 - ALSA MIDI driver supports now "NAME" device parameter, for overriding
128 the ALSA sequencer client name
129 - removed limit of maximum amount of MIDI ports per MIDI device, since
130 there is no reason for this limit

171
172 * Bug fixes:
173 - Fixed crash which may occur when MIDI key + transpose is out of range
174 - minor valgrind fixes
175 - fixed crash which occurred when changing an already deployed sampler
176 channel to a different engine type
177 - fixed crash when deleting a sampler channel or changing engine
178 type while an instrument load was in progress
179 - bugfix: playing a note while changing the instrument could cause
180 a crash, or give "Handing back unknown region" error messages
181 - bugfix: calling SET VOICES (which Fantasia does on start and
182 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded
183 - Mac OS X: fixed name collision of enum in EffectControl and
184 wrong name of destructor in AudioOutputDeviceCoreAudio.cpp
185 - Mac OS X: fixed hanging threads
186 - Windows: disabled the previous thread fix on non-Mac systems, as
187 it caused hanging threads on Windows
188 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
189 after MIDI/audio device creation failure
190
191 Version 1.0.0 (31 July 2009)
192
193 * packaging changes:
194 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
195 causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
196 "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
197 (patch by Alexis Ballier)
198 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
199 - fixes for building on OS X (thanks to Ebrahim Mayat for testing)
200 - fixed configure so it detects x86_64 (#107)
201 - fixes for building with newer MinGW versions
202 - fix for building with bison 2.4 (#111)
203 - fixed building with libgig installed in a non-standard directory
204 - minor fix in configure for mmsystem.h detection on MinGW
205 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
206 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
207 directory above)
208 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
209 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
210 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
211 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
212
213 * general changes:
214 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
215 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
216 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
217 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
218 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
219 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
220 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
221 unnecessarily long after an update
222 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
223 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
224 of gigedit)
225 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
226 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
227 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
228 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
229 implementation, which is usually faster)
230 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
231 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
232 VST plugin
233 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
234 only when there are actual changes
235 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
236 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
237 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
238 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
239 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
240 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
241 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
242 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
243 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
244 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
245 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
246 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
247 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
248 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
249 model more strictly
250 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
251 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
252 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
253 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
254
255 * audio driver:
256 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
257 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
258 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
259 opposed to the LSCP specs
260 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
261 reflected the wrong value
262 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
263 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
264 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
265 jack_client_new
266 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
267 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
268 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
269 (fixes #117)
270 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
271 win64)
272 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
273 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
274 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
275 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
276 energyXT)
277 - VST: changed number of output channels from one stereo to 16
278 stereo
279 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
280 stored in the plugin state
281 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
282 AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
283 (if available)
284 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
285 exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
286
287 * MIDI driver:
288 - added JACK MIDI driver
289 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
290 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
291 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
292 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
293 CoreMidi or AU
294 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
295 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
296 moving the logic to a non-RT thread
297 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
298
299 * instruments database:
300 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
301 to the instruments database
302 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
303 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
304 in the instruments database
305 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
306 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
307 instrument database compilable
308 - added instrument database support on Windows
309 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
310 the instruments DB file is located in
311 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
312 databases for each windows user
313 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
314 and then creates an empty DB
315 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
316
317 * Gigasampler format engine:
318 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
319 while notes were playing
320 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
321 isn't running
322 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
323 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
324 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
325 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
326 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
327 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
328 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
329 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
330 on)
331 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
332 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
333 be played
334 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
335 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
336 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
337 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
338 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
339 defined for the sampler
340 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
341 audio thread isn't running
342 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
343 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
344 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
345 sampler engine anymore
346 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
347 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
348 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
349 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
350 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
351 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
352 instrument-level gig parameters
353 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
354 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
355 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
356 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
357 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
358 note was silent
359 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
360 same time a new instrument was loading
361
362 * LSCP server:
363 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
364 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
365 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
366 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
367 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
368 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
369 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
370 SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
371 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
372 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
373 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
374 KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
375 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
376 was incorrect
377 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
378 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
379 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
380 be triggered respectively
381 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
382 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
383 which will be triggered respectively
384 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
385 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
386 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
387 - hard close of all sockets on exit
388 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
389 driver
390
391 * Bug fixes:
392 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
393 to start instrument loading after another channel
394 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
395 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
396 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
397 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
398 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
399 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
400 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
401 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
402 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
403 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
404 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
405 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
406 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
407 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
408 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
409 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
410 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
411 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
412 plugin was unloaded
413 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
414 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
415 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
416 Windows
417
418
419 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
420
421 * packaging changes:
422 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
423 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
424 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
425 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
426
427 * general changes:
428 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
429 editor closed
430 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
431 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
432 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
433 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
434 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
435 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
436 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
437 bugs.
438 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
439 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
440 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
441 unaligned 32bit read and shift
442 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
443 output via ASIO)
444 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
445 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
446 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
447 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
448
449 * AUDIO driver:
450 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
451
452 * MIDI driver:
453 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
454
455 * LSCP server:
456 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
457 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
458 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
459 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
460 apostrophes as well
461 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
462 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
463 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
464 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
465 running on
466
467 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
468
469 * packaging changes:
470 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
471 API header files anymore
472 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
473 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
474 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
475 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
476 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
477 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
478 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
479 parameters
480 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
481 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
482 are now in global_private.h
483 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
484 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
485 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
486
487 * general changes:
488 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
489 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
490 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
491 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
492 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
493 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
494 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
495 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
496 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
497 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
498 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
499 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
500 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
501 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
502 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
503 drumkits is possible
504 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
505 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
506 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
507 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
508 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
509 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
510 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
511 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
512 controllers
513 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
514 - Implemented new, improved notification system
515 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
516 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
517 - implemented instruments database
518 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
519 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
520 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
521 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
522 startup, added a new LSCP command:
523 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
524 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
525 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
526 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
527 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
528 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
529 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
530 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
531 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
532 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
533 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
534 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
535 setting their own policy and priority
536 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
537 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
538 its output
539 - fixed some minor memory leaks
540 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
541 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
542 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
543 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
544 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
545
546 * MIDI driver:
547 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
548
549 * audio driver:
550 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
551 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
552 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
553
554 * Gigasampler format engine:
555 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
556 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
557 voice starvation for some gigs)
558 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
559 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
560 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
561 command
562 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
563 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
564 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
565 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
566 even if sustain is 100%
567 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
568 noises or crashes
569 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
570 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
571 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
572 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
573 instead of a fix value
574 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
575 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
576 changed
577
578 * LSCP server:
579 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
580 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
581 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
582 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
583 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
584 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
585 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
586 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
587 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
588 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
589 "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
590 "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
591 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
592 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
593 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
594 "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
595 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
596 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
597 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
598 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
599 settings
600 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
601 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
602 (fixes #57)
603
604 * Bug fixes:
605 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
606 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
607 channel audio output device"
608 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
609 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
610 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
611 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
612 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
613 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
614 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
615 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
616 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
617 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
618 channel changes
619 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
620 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
621 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
622 an audio output device
623 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
624
625 * test cases:
626 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
627
628 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
629
630 * packaging changes:
631 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
632 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
633 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
634 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
635 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
636 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
637 (Doxygen required)
638 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
639 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
640 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
641 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
642 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
643 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
644 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
645 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
646 messages
647 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
648 MIDI drivers
649 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
650 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
651
652 * Gigasampler format engine:
653 - extensive synthesis optimization
654 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
655 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
656 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
657 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
658 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
659 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
660 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
661 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
662 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
663 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
664 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
665 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
666 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
667 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
668 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
669 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
670 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
671 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
672 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
673 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
674 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
675 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
676 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
677 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
678 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
679 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
680 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
681 parameter) and crossfade
682 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
683 parameter
684 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
685 messages
686 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
687 instead of the wave chunk
688 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
689 not equal to a power of two
690 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
691 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
692 and lowpass turbo.
693 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
694 16 bits anymore
695 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
696 aftertouch)
697 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
698 amplifying from 0)
699
700 * LSCP server:
701 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
702 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
703 network activity (fixes bug #26)
704 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
705 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
706
707 * audio driver:
708 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
709
710 * MIDI driver:
711 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
712 messages several times instead of once
713 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
714 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
715 - added checks for bad MIDI data
716
717 * linuxsampler application:
718 - show available sampler engine types on startup
719
720 * general changes:
721 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
722 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
723 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
724 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
725 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
726 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
727 processing of muted channels.
728 - support for sostenuto pedal
729 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
730 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
731 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
732 - fixed some memory management errors
733 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
734 LSCP commands were executed
735 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
736 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
737
738 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
739
740 * packaging changes:
741 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
742
743 * Gigasampler format engine:
744 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
745 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
746 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
747 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
748 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
749 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
750 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
751
752 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
753
754 * packaging changes:
755 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
756 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
757 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
758 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
759 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
760 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
761 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
762
763 * Gigasampler format engine:
764 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
765 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
766 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
767 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
768 note-off velocity.
769 - revised voice stealing
770 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
771 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
772 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
773 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
774 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
775 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
776 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
777 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
778 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
779 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
780 instrument or audio output device change
781
782 * LSCP server:
783 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
784 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
785 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
786
787 * linuxsampler application:
788 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
789 default IP address and port of LSCP server
790
791 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
792
793 * initial release
