40
41 * general changes:
42 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
43 the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
44 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
45 respective profiling code is currently broken
46 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
47 "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
48 where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
49 (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
50 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
51 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
52 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
53 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
54 the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
55 effect type is)
56 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
57 note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
58 the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
59 effect type is)
60 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
61 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512
62 (as suggested by Alex Stone)
63 - implemented sine LFO, pulse LFO and saw LFO
64 - experimental support for per voice equalization
65 - added command line option --exec-after-init
66 - Introduced new C++ API method:
67 EngineChannel::InstrumentFileName(int index)
68 allowing to retrieve the whole list of files used for the loaded
69 instrument on an engine channel (a.k.a. part). Some GigaStudio
70 instruments for example are splitted over several files like
71 "Foo.gig", "Foo.gx01", "Foo.gx02", ...
72 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxVoices().
73 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxStreams().
74 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::SetGlobalMaxVoices().
75 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::SetGlobalMaxStreams().
76 - Various "const" and "restrict" optimizations.
77 - all engines: add pan CC value to instrument pan parameter before
78 applying panning, instead of using two separate pan functions in
79 series (#182)
80 - added a lock guard class for exception safe mutex handling and
81 used it everywhere appropriate
82 - Immediately apply scale tuning changes to active voices.
83 - Exposed scale tuning to C++ API (along to the already existing standard
84 SysEx way).
85 - lsatomic.h fixes: seq_cst load and store were suboptimal for x86
86 and broken for ppc64. (Seq_cst loads and stores are actually not
87 used in LS, so the bug wasn't noticable.)
88 - lsatomic.h: added ARMv7 support
89 - Added support for multiple MIDI input ports per sampler channel (and
90 added various new C++ methods for this new feature / design change, old
91 C++ API methods for managing SamplerChannel's MIDI inputs are now marked
92 as deprecated but are still there and should provide full behavior
93 backward compatibility).
94 - AbstractEngine::GSChecksum(): don't allocate memory on the stack (was
95 unsafe and caused compilation error with clang 2.x).
96 - Bugfix: only process the latest MIDI program change event.
97 - Introducing the LSCP shell, which provides convenient control of the
98 sampler from the command line by providing LSCP aware features.
99 - VirtualMidiDevice: Added support for program change.
100 - VirtualMidiDevice: Added support for bank select (MSB & LSB).
101 - VirtualMidiDevice: Added support for pitch bend.
102

106 dimension zones is not a power of two
107 - made round robin use a counter for each region instead of each
108 key
109 - bugfix: pitch LFO controller "internal+aftertouch" was broken
110 - bugfix: filter keyboard tracking was broken
111 - filter performance fix (an unnecessary copy was made of the
112 filter parameters in each sub fragment)
113 - handle special case when pan parameter in gig file has max or
114 min value
115 - Exclusive Groups: don't ever stop voices of the same note,
116 doesn't sound naturally with a drumkit
117 - fixed EG1 modulation when attack or release is zero
118
119 * SFZ format engine:

317 and event
318 - LV2: lv2 package 1.0 is now required to build the LV2 plugin

336 - CoreMIDI: added driver specific port parameter "AUTO_BIND", if enabled
337 the driver will automatically connect to other CoreMIDI clients' ports
338 (e.g. external MIDI devices being attached to the Mac)
339 - added support for MIDI note on velocity filter
340 - CoreMIDI: fixed memory deallocation error
341 - Fixed variable underflow in VirtualMidiDevice, which caused graphical
342 virtual keyboards in frontends / instrument editors being stuck.

344 - Implemented missing handling of MIDI "running status".
345 - CoreMIDI fix: a MIDIPacket can contain more than one event per packet.
346 - MME bugfix: driver wasn't closed properly
347
348 * audio driver:
349 - ASIO driver fixes for newer gcc versions (fix from PortAudio)

412 - fixed crash which occurred when changing an already deployed sampler
413 channel to a different engine type
414 - fixed crash when deleting a sampler channel or changing engine
415 type while an instrument load was in progress
416 - bugfix: playing a note while changing the instrument could cause
417 a crash, or give "Handing back unknown region" error messages
418 - bugfix: calling SET VOICES (which Fantasia does on start and
419 refresh) could cause instruments to be unloaded
420 - Mac OS X: fixed name collision of enum in EffectControl and
421 wrong name of destructor in AudioOutputDeviceCoreAudio.cpp
422 - Mac OS X: fixed hanging threads
423 - Windows: disabled the previous thread fix on non-Mac systems, as
424 it caused hanging threads on Windows
425 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
426 after MIDI/audio device creation failure
427 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
428 instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
429 took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective
430 instrument was completely reloaded again.
431 - fixed handling of rapid bank select and program change messages
432 sent to the same sampler channel (patch from the Open Octave
433 project, slightly adjusted)
434 - fixed crash when trying to create an effect instance with controls
435 which min and/or max values depend on the sample rate
436 - fixed bug #162
437 - bugfix: LADSPA_PATH was not evaluated correctly when containing
438 multiple paths (#165)
439 - thread safety fixes for the instrument loading thread
440 - bugfix: instrument loading crashed for sfz and sf2 in Ardour
441 (#176)
442 - more thread safety fixes for the instrument loading thread
443 - sfz/sf2 engine: fixed crash when using small audio fragment size
444 - Mac OS X: fixed crash when unloading plugin on 10.7 and later
445 - Mac OS X: fixed process hang when unloading 32-bit plugin (bug
446 introduced in previous fix)
447 - fixed crash when a channel received a program change while
448 playing a note in a key group
449 - fixed erroneous error message piping in VoiceBase.h
450 (labelled "Disk stream not available in time")
451 - Update effects on sample rate & period size changes (to avoid
452 crashes and noise on such transitions).
453 - ignore missing LADSPA paths without ignoring valid LADSPA paths
454 (fixes #208)
455 - Fixed bug in LSCP grammar definition which caused a statement like
456 "GET SERVER INFOasdf\n" to be accepted as valid statement (was so far
457 practically irrelevant, however it caused problems with the new LSCP
458 shell's auto completion feature).
459
460 Version 1.0.0 (31 July 2009)
461
462 * packaging changes:
463 - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
464 causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
465 "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
466 (patch by Alexis Ballier)
467 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
468 - fixes for building on OS X (thanks to Ebrahim Mayat for testing)
469 - fixed configure so it detects x86_64 (#107)
470 - fixes for building with newer MinGW versions
471 - fix for building with bison 2.4 (#111)
472 - fixed building with libgig installed in a non-standard directory
473 - minor fix in configure for mmsystem.h detection on MinGW
474 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
475 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
476 directory above)
477 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
478 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
479 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
480 - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
481
482 * general changes:
483 - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
484 load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
485 (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
486 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
487 plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
488 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
489 - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
490 unnecessarily long after an update
491 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
492 events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
493 of gigedit)
494 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
495 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
496 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
497 is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
498 implementation, which is usually faster)
499 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
500 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
501 VST plugin
502 - notification events for stream/voice count statistics are now sent
503 only when there are actual changes
504 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
505 multi-core and multi-cpu systems
506 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
507 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
508 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
509 be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
510 stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
511 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
512 a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
513 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
514 liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
515 InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
516 InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
517 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
518 model more strictly
519 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
520 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path
521 when loading an editor plugin (solves problems with VST and
522 gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
523 - updated linuxsampler man page
524
525 * audio driver:
526 - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
527 max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
528 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
529 opposed to the LSCP specs
530 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
531 reflected the wrong value
532 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
533 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
534 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
535 jack_client_new
536 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
537 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
538 previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
539 (fixes #117)
540 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
541 win64)
542 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
543 - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed
544 - VST: avoid opening Fantasia more than once for each VST instance
545 - VST: export main function as "main" on Linux too (fix for
546 energyXT)
547 - VST: changed number of output channels from one stereo to 16
548 stereo
549 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
550 stored in the plugin state
551 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
552 AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
553 (if available)
554 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
555 exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
556
557 * MIDI driver:
558 - added JACK MIDI driver
559 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
560 want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
561 input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
562 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
563 CoreMidi or AU
564 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
565 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
566 moving the logic to a non-RT thread
567 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
568
569 * instruments database:
570 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
571 to the instruments database
572 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
573 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
574 in the instruments database
575 (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
576 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
577 instrument database compilable
578 - added instrument database support on Windows
579 works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
580 the instruments DB file is located in
581 %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
582 databases for each windows user
583 if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
584 and then creates an empty DB
585 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
586
587 * Gigasampler format engine:
588 - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
589 while notes were playing
590 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
591 isn't running
592 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
593 enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
594 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
595 respective FX send MIDI controller was used
596 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
597 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
598 whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
599 connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
600 on)
601 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
602 sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
603 be played
604 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
605 which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
606 drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
607 part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
608 LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
609 defined for the sampler
610 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
611 audio thread isn't running
612 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
613 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
614 un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
615 sampler engine anymore
616 - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
617 e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
618 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
619 same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
620 same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
621 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
622 instrument-level gig parameters
623 - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
624 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
625 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
626 - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
627 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
628 note was silent
629 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
630 same time a new instrument was loading
631
632 * LSCP server:
633 - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
634 react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
635 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
636 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
637 react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
638 Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
639 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
640 SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
641 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
642 frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
643 - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
644 KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
645 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
646 was incorrect
647 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
648 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
649 amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
650 be triggered respectively
651 - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
652 amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
653 which will be triggered respectively
654 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
655 a gigedit file dialog is opened)
656 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
657 - hard close of all sockets on exit
658 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
659 driver
660
661 * Bug fixes:
662 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
663 to start instrument loading after another channel
664 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
665 instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
666 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
667 instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
668 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
669 - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
670 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
671 GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
672 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
673 GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
674 - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
675 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
676 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
677 channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
678 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
679 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
680 PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
681 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
682 plugin was unloaded
683 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
684 problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
685 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
686 Windows
687
688
689 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
690
691 * packaging changes:
692 - added autoconf checks for pthread library
693 - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
694 glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
695 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
696
697 * general changes:
698 - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
699 editor closed
700 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
701 out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
702 decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
703 order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
704 - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
705 GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
706 the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
707 bugs.
708 - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
709 24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
710 endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
711 unaligned 32bit read and shift
712 - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
713 output via ASIO)
714 - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
715 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
716 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
717 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
718
719 * AUDIO driver:
720 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
721
722 * MIDI driver:
723 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
724
725 * LSCP server:
726 - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
727 forward slash path separators instead of backslash
728 (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
729 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
730 apostrophes as well
731 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
732 "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
733 "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
734 about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
735 running on
736
737 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
738
739 * packaging changes:
740 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
741 API header files anymore
742 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
743 the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
744 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
745 capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
746 to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
747 OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
748 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
749 parameters
750 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
751 C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
752 are now in global_private.h
753 - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
754 - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
755 - fixed warnings in API doc generation
756
757 * general changes:
758 - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
759 flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
760 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
761 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
762 loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
763 messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
764 strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
765 instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
766 quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
767 respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
768 global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
769 dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
770 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
771 MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
772 a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
773 drumkits is possible
774 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
775 MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
776 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
777 due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
778 dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
779 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
780 output channels for being processed by external effect processors
781 (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
782 controllers
783 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
784 - Implemented new, improved notification system
785 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
786 (patch by Toshi Nagata)
787 - implemented instruments database
788 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
789 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
790 within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
791 you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
792 startup, added a new LSCP command:
793 "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
794 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
795 given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
796 time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
797 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
798 in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
799 without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
800 wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
801 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
802 policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
803 thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
804 threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
805 setting their own policy and priority
806 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
807 main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
808 its output
809 - fixed some minor memory leaks
810 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
811 enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
812 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
813 register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
814 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
815
816 * MIDI driver:
817 - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
818
819 * audio driver:
820 - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
821 parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
822 (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
823
824 * Gigasampler format engine:
825 - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
826 die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
827 voice starvation for some gigs)
828 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
829 - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
830 playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
831 command
832 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
833 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
834 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
835 above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
836 even if sustain is 100%
837 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
838 noises or crashes
839 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
840 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
841 supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
842 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
843 instead of a fix value
844 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
845 127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
846 changed
847
848 * LSCP server:
849 - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
850 (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
851 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
852 (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
853 - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
854 sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
855 \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
856 code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
857 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
858 least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
859 "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
860 "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
861 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
862 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
863 "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
864 "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
865 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
866 occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
867 character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
868 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
869 settings
870 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
871 of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
872 (fixes #57)
873
874 * Bug fixes:
875 - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
876 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
877 channel audio output device"
878 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
879 on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
880 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
881 device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
882 to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
883 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
884 the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
885 unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
886 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
887 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
888 channel changes
889 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
890 audio output channels and MIDI input ports
891 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
892 an audio output device
893 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
894
895 * test cases:
896 - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
897
898 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
899
900 * packaging changes:
901 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
902 to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
903 to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
904 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
905 applications to link against liblinuxsampler
906 - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
907 (Doxygen required)
908 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
909 implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
910 di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
911 with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
912 configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
913 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
914 provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
915 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
916 messages
917 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
918 MIDI drivers
919 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
920 (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
921
922 * Gigasampler format engine:
923 - extensive synthesis optimization
924 (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
925 prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
926 each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
927 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
928 linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
929 --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
930 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
931 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
932 following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
933 controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
934 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
935 cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
936 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
937 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
938 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
939 which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
940 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
941 accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
942 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
943 time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
944 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
945 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
946 - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
947 all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
948 altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
949 mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
950 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
951 parameter) and crossfade
952 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
953 parameter
954 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
955 messages
956 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
957 instead of the wave chunk
958 - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
959 not equal to a power of two
960 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
961 accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
962 and lowpass turbo.
963 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
964 16 bits anymore
965 - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
966 aftertouch)
967 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
968 amplifying from 0)
969
970 * LSCP server:
971 - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
972 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
973 network activity (fixes bug #26)
974 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
975 (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
976
977 * audio driver:
978 - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
979
980 * MIDI driver:
981 - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
982 messages several times instead of once
983 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
984 for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
985 - added checks for bad MIDI data
986
987 * linuxsampler application:
988 - show available sampler engine types on startup
989
990 * general changes:
991 - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
992 LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
993 fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
994 introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
995 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
996 --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
997 processing of muted channels.
998 - support for sostenuto pedal
999 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
1000 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
1001 SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
1002 - fixed some memory management errors
1003 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
1004 LSCP commands were executed
1005 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
1006 sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
1007
1008 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
1009
1010 * packaging changes:
1011 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
1012
1013 * Gigasampler format engine:
1014 - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
1015 disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
1016 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
1017 for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
1018 stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
1019 about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
1020 appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
1021
1022 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
1023
1024 * packaging changes:
1025 - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
1026 (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
1027 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
1028 './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
1029 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
1030 - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
1031 (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
1032
1033 * Gigasampler format engine:
1034 - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
1035 - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
1036 - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
1037 note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
1038 note-off velocity.
1039 - revised voice stealing
1040 (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
1041 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
1042 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
1043 instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
1044 (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
1045 this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
1046 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
1047 (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
1048 resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
1049 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
1050 instrument or audio output device change
1051
1052 * LSCP server:
1053 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
1054 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
1055 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
1056
1057 * linuxsampler application:
1058 - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
1059 default IP address and port of LSCP server
1060
1061 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
1062
1063 * initial release
