* revised previously added new LSCP commands regarding effect handling:
  renamed "master effects" to "send effects", since this is the actual
  correct common term for those effects
* also corrected the names regarding "send effects" in the respective
  methods of the "FxSsnd" class and "AudioOutputDevice" class of the
  sampler's C++ API, the old methods are still available but marked as
  deprecated and scheduled for removal
* added LSCP command "SET FX_SEND SEND_EFFECT <sampler_channel>
  <fx_send_id> <effect_chain> <chain_pos>"
* added LSCP command "REMOVE FX_SEND SEND_EFFECT <sampler_channel>
  <fx_send_id>"
* added a list of common known LADSPA paths (for Windows and POSIX) which
  will be automatically checked for being used as LADSPA plugin directory
  (if the user did not set the LADSPA_PATH environment variable explicitly)
* bumped version to 1.0.0.cvs8

2 .SH NAME
3 linuxsampler \- modular, streaming capable sampler
4 .SH SYNOPSIS
5 .B linuxsampler
6 [OPTIONS]
7 .SH DESCRIPTION
8 LinuxSampler is a modular, streaming capable sampler. The sampler is designed as
9 backend, that is server-like console application. You will need a frontend
10 application like QSampler or JSampler to control the sampler and manage sampler
11 sessions. Or you have to send LSCP commands manually to the sampler e.g. by
12 using telnet or netcat.
13 .SH OPTIONS
14 .IP "--help"
15 Print command line help and exit.
16 .IP "--version"
17 Print version information and exit.
18 .IP "--profile"
19 This option is currently not supported anymore, since the respective
20 profiling code is currently broken. Original behavior:
21 Output benchmark messages on the console. This reflects the current
22 efficiency as abstract BogoVoice count which is something like a
23 theoretical limit of the amount of voices which can be rendered in the given
24 scenario. It does not include all aspects of the sampler, that's why this
25 value is usually higher than what you really can achieve on your box. Also
26 note that this value is as well dependant on what instrument patch you are
27 using and what you are playing.
28 For a compact synthesis core benchmark, independent from drivers and
29 instrument files, you might want to use the one coming with the sampler's
30 source files instead (directory "benchmarks" of the source files).
31 .IP "--no-tune"
32 Disable assembly optimizations. Usually the sampler will detect CPU specific
33 features like MMX and SSE at runtime and use an appropriate assembly
34 optimized code in that case. With that switch you can disable this feature
35 and force the sampler to skip the assembly optimizations at runtime.
36 .IP "--statistics"
37 Output voice and disk stream count periodically on the console.
38 .IP "--lscp-addr IPADDRESS"
39 Defines IP address on which the LSCP server should listen to (default: any).
40 .IP "--lscp-port NUMBER"
41 Defines TCP port on which the LSCP server should listen to (default: 8888).
42 .IP "--create-instruments-db FILE"
43 Creates a database file with the given filename which can be used by the
44 sampler's instruments database system to maintain the user's collection of
45 instrument libraries. When this argument is given, the sampler will just
46 create the instruments DB file and exit.
47 .IP "--instruments-db-location FILE"
48 Overrides the location of the database file, which the sampler shall use for
49 its instruments database system
50 (default: @config_default_instruments_db_file@).
51 .SH ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
52 .IP "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR"
53 Allows to override the directory where LinuxSampler shall look for instrument
54 editor plugins.
55 .IP "LADSPA_PATH"
56 Allows to override the directory where LinuxSampler shall look for LADSPA
57 effect plugins.
58 .SH "SEE ALSO"

60 .SH "BUGS"
61 Report bugs to http://bugs.linuxsampler.org
