  applications to link against liblinuxsampler
* liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
  (Doxygen required)

1 schoenebeck 5 LinuxSampler - modular, streaming capable sampler
2    
3     by Benno Senoner (benno@gardena.net)
4     and Christian Schoenebeck (cuse@users.sourceforge.net)

6     This software is distributed under the GNU General Public License (see
7     COPYING file), and may not be used in commercial applications without asking
8     the authors for permission.
9    
10 schoenebeck 579 LinuxSampler is sampler backend, thus server-like console application. It
11     provides a TCP based network interface with a custom ASCII based protocol
12     called "LSCP" to control the sampler and manage sampler sessions. You either
13     have to send commands manually to LinuxSampler, e.g. by connecting via
14     'telnet' or by using 'netcat' or you might want to use a graphical user
15     interface (frontend) like QSampler.

20     Requirements on Linux
21     ---------------------
22    
23     o A low latency enabled kernel
24     (see http://www.linuxsampler.org/faq.html#dropouts).
25     o At least ALSA and optionally JACK and their respective development
26     (header) files as MIDI input and audio output drivers.
27     o libgig and its development (header) files for loading Gigasampler
28     format files.
29 schoenebeck 654 o libtool
30 schoenebeck 579 o If you are compiling from CVS you need to have the autotools installed
31 schoenebeck 654 (autoconf, automake (>= 1.5)).
32 schoenebeck 697 o If you want to generate the liblinuxsampler API documentation you
33     need to have Doxygen installed.

36     Compiling on Linux
37     ------------------
38    
39     a) Compiling and installing directly
40 schoenebeck 654
41 schoenebeck 579 The general procedure by calling './configure && make' on the source's
42     toplevel directory will compile and 'make install' as root will install
43     LinuxSampler on your system.
44 schoenebeck 654
45 schoenebeck 579 Note: if you are compiling from CVS you have to explicitly call
46     'make -f Makefile.cvs' before doing the above procedure. This will
47     generate all autotools managed build files.
48    
49 schoenebeck 697 LinuxSampler itself is a library called liblinuxsampler. You can
50     generate the API documenation for liblinuxsampler by explicitly calling
51     'make docs'.
52 schoenebeck 654
53 schoenebeck 697
54 schoenebeck 579 b) Creating Debian packages
55    
56     Simply calling 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b' from the source's
57     toplevel directory will compile and build the Debian binary package.
58     The Debian package will be placed one directory above the source's
59     toplevel directory (thus ../).
60    
61 schoenebeck 654
62 schoenebeck 579 c) Creating Redhat packages
63    
64     You need to have the rpmbuild tool installed and properly configured to
65     create RPM packages. To create the RPM packages do the following:
66    
67     * Get .spec file generated by ./configure and edit it as appropriate.
68    
69     * Copy the source tarball to "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/SOURCES" directory,
70     where <rpmdir> is dependent to the system you are using. For SuSE
71     <rmpdir> will be "packages", for Mandrake <rpmdir> is "RPM" and for
72     Redhat / Fedora <rpmdir> always equals "redhat".
73    
74     * Build the rpm(s) by invoking 'rpmbuild -bb <specfile>' from the
75     command line.
76    
77     On success, the resulting rpm(s) can usually be found under the proper
78     "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/RPMS/<arch>" directory.

81 letz 364 Compilation on OSX : Stephane Letz (letz@grame.fr)
82     --------------------------------------------------
83    
84 schoenebeck 654 The compilation on OSX currently uses an XCode project.
85 letz 364
86     - Download and install the JackOSX package (www.jackosx.com)
87    
88     - In the "osx" folder, possibly manually edit the version.h to change the version number
89    
90     - In the XCode project, build the "LinuxSampler" target
