1 LinuxSampler - modular, streaming capable sampler

10 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 o libtool
30 o If you are compiling from CVS you need to have the autotools installed
31 (autoconf, automake (>= 1.5)).

34 Compiling on Linux
35 ------------------
36
37 a) Compiling and installing directly
38
39 The general procedure by calling './configure && make' on the source's
40 toplevel directory will compile and 'make install' as root will install
41 LinuxSampler on your system.
42
43 Note: if you are compiling from CVS you have to explicitly call
44 'make -f Makefile.cvs' before doing the above procedure. This will
45 generate all autotools managed build files.
46
47
48 b) Creating Debian packages
49
50 Simply calling 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b' from the source's
51 toplevel directory will compile and build the Debian binary package.
52 The Debian package will be placed one directory above the source's
53 toplevel directory (thus ../).
54
55
56 c) Creating Redhat packages
57
58 You need to have the rpmbuild tool installed and properly configured to
59 create RPM packages. To create the RPM packages do the following:
60
61 * Get .spec file generated by ./configure and edit it as appropriate.
62
63 * Copy the source tarball to "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/SOURCES" directory,
64 where <rpmdir> is dependent to the system you are using. For SuSE
65 <rmpdir> will be "packages", for Mandrake <rpmdir> is "RPM" and for
66 Redhat / Fedora <rpmdir> always equals "redhat".
67
68 * Build the rpm(s) by invoking 'rpmbuild -bb <specfile>' from the
69 command line.
70
71 On success, the resulting rpm(s) can usually be found under the proper
72 "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/RPMS/<arch>" directory.

75 Compilation on OSX : Stephane Letz (letz@grame.fr)
76 --------------------------------------------------
77
78 The compilation on OSX currently uses an XCode project.
79
80 - Download and install the JackOSX package (www.jackosx.com)
81
82 - In the "osx" folder, possibly manually edit the version.h to change the version number
83
84 - In the XCode project, build the "LinuxSampler" target
