1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------
3
4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters which the
9 user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
10
11 * Added Windows file path support.
12
13 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles under win32.
14
15 * Qt4 port of the application.
16
17
18 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
19
20 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
21 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
22 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
23 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
24
25 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
26 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
27 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
28 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
29
30 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
31 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
32 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
33
34 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
35
36
37 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
38
39 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
40 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
41 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
42
43 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
44
45 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
46 the session state, only at code-level.
47
48 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
49 existing instrument file name.
50
51 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
52 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
53 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
54 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
55 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
56 corrected some tooltip text strings.
57
58 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
59 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
60 window managers.
61
62 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
63 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
64 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
65 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
66
67 * GPL address update.
68
69
70 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
71
72 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
73 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
74
75 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
76
77 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
78 installation paths have been added to configure command
79 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
80
81 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
82 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
83 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
84 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
85 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
86
87 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
88 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
89 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
90 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
91
92 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
93
94 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
95 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
96
97 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
98 title name prefix.
99
100 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
101 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
102 generated at configure time.
103
104 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
105 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
106 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
107 argument have some effect on X11.
108
109 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
110
111 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
112 compiled with -no-stl.
113
114
115 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
116
117 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
118 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
119 one, while on qjackctl).
120
121 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
122 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
123
124
125 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
126
127 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
128 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
129
130 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
131 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
132 info updates.
133
134 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
135 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
136 device dialog.
137
138 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
139
140 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
141 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
142 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
143 Mayat, for pointing these out).
144
145
146 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
147
148 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
149
150 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
151 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
152 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
153
154 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
155 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
156
157 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
158 an instrument.
159
160 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
161
162
163 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
164
165 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
166 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
167 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
168 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
169
170 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
171 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
172 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
173
174 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
175 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
176
177 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
178
179 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
180 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
181 change information are now also posted to messages window.
182
183 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
184 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
185 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
186 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
187
188 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
189 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
190 sampler instrument file.
191
192 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
193 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
194 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
195 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
196
197 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
198 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
199 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
200
201 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
202 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
203 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
204 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
205
206
207 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
208
209 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
210 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
211 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
212
213 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
214 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
215 following common user-interface guidelines.
216
217 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
218 control structures.
219
220 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
221
222 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
223 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
224 channel (omni mode).
225
226 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
227 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
228
229 * Minor configure fixes.
230
231
232 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
233
234 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
235
236 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
237 and on session file save.
238
239 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
240 on create time.
241
242 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
243
244
245 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
246
247 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
248 over the empty workspace area.
249
250 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
251 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
252 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
253 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
254
255 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
256 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
257
258 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
259 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
260
261 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
262 each sampler channel strip.
263
264 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
265 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
266
267 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
268 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
269
270 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
271 new sampler channel strip.
272
273 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
274 suggested in the following lines:
275
276 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
277 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
278 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
279 LOAD ENGINE ...
280 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
281 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
282
283
284 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
