11 The LinuxSampler library (liblinuxsampler) and its applications are
12 distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (see COPYING
13 file), and may NOT be used in commercial applications without asking the

18 Description
19 -----------
20
21 LinuxSampler is sampler backend, thus server-like console application. It
22 provides a TCP based network interface with a custom ASCII based protocol
23 called "LSCP" to control the sampler and manage sampler sessions. You either
24 have to send commands manually to LinuxSampler, e.g. by connecting via
25 'telnet' or by using 'netcat' or you might want to use a graphical user
26 interface (frontend) like QSampler.

31 Requirements on Linux
32 ---------------------
33
34 o A low latency enabled kernel
35 (see http://www.linuxsampler.org/faq.html#dropouts).
36 o At least ALSA and optionally JACK and their respective development
37 (header) files as MIDI input and audio output drivers.
38 o libgig and its development (header) files for loading Gigasampler
39 format files.
40 o libtool
41 o If you are compiling from CVS you need to have the autotools installed
42 (autoconf, automake (>= 1.5)).
43 o If you want to generate the liblinuxsampler API documentation you
44 need to have Doxygen installed.

47 Compiling on Linux
48 ------------------
49
50 a) Compiling and installing directly
51
52 The general procedure by calling './configure && make' on the source's
53 toplevel directory will compile and 'make install' as root will install
54 LinuxSampler on your system.
55
56 Note: if you are compiling from CVS you have to explicitly call
57 'make -f Makefile.cvs' before doing the above procedure. This will
58 generate all autotools managed build files.
59
60 LinuxSampler itself is a library called liblinuxsampler. You can
61 generate the API documenation for liblinuxsampler by explicitly calling
62 'make docs'.
63
64
65 b) Creating Debian packages
66
67 Simply calling 'dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -b' from the source's
68 toplevel directory will compile and build the Debian binary package.
69 The Debian package will be placed one directory above the source's
70 toplevel directory (thus ../).
71
72
73 c) Creating Redhat packages
74
75 You need to have the rpmbuild tool installed and properly configured to
76 create RPM packages. To create the RPM packages do the following:
77
78 * Get .spec file generated by ./configure and edit it as appropriate.
79
80 * Copy the source tarball to "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/SOURCES" directory,
81 where <rpmdir> is dependent to the system you are using. For SuSE
82 <rmpdir> will be "packages", for Mandrake <rpmdir> is "RPM" and for
83 Redhat / Fedora <rpmdir> always equals "redhat".
84
85 * Build the rpm(s) by invoking 'rpmbuild -bb <specfile>' from the
86 command line.
87
88 On success, the resulting rpm(s) can usually be found under the proper
89 "/usr/src/<rpmdir>/RPMS/<arch>" directory.

91
92 Compilation on OSX : Stephane Letz (letz@grame.fr)
93 --------------------------------------------------
94
95 The compilation on OSX currently uses an XCode project.
96
97 - Download and install the JackOSX package (www.jackosx.com)
98
99 - In the "osx" folder, possibly manually edit the version.h to change the version number
100
101 - In the XCode project, build the "LinuxSampler" target
