1 capela 491 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 capela 77 ------------------------------------------
3    
4 capela 491 Qsampler is a LinuxSampler GUI front-end application written in C++ around
5 capela 1509 the Qt4 toolkit using Qt Designer. At the moment it just wraps as a client
6 capela 77 reference interface for the LinuxSampler Control Protocol (LSCP).
7    
8     LinuxSampler is a work in progress. The goal is to produce a free, open source
9     pure software audio sampler with professional grade features, comparable to
10     both hardware and commercial Windows/Mac software samplers.
11    
12     The initial platform will be Linux because it is one of the most promising
13     open source multimedia operating systems. Thanks to various kernel patches
14     and the Jack Audio Connection Kit, Linux is currently able to deliver rock
15     solid sub-5 millisecond MIDI-to-Audio response.

23 capela 1509 Requirements
24     ------------
25    
26     The software requirements for build and runtime are listed as follows:
27    
28     Mandatory:
29    
30     - Qt 4 (core, gui), C++ class library and tools for
31     crossplatform development and internationalization
32 capela 2064 http://qt.nokia.com/products/
33 capela 1509
34     - liblscp, C library for LinuxSampler control protocol API.
35     http://www.linuxsampler.org/
36    
37     Optional (opted-in at build time):
38    
39     - libgig, C++ library for loading and modifying Gigasampler and DLS files.
40     http://www.linuxsampler.org/libgig/

43 capela 77 Installation
44     ------------
45    
46     The installation procedure follows the standard for source distributions.
47     Unpack the tarball and in the extracted source directory:
48    
49     ./configure [--prefix=/usr/local]
50     make
51    
52     and optionally as root:
53    
54     make install
55    
56     This procedure will end installing the following couple of files:
57    
58     ${prefix}/bin/qsampler
59 capela 1258 ${prefix}/share/pixmaps/qsampler.png
60     ${prefix}/share/applications/qsampler.desktop
61 capela 2048 ${prefix}/share/locale/qsampler_*.qm
62 capela 77
63     Just launch ${prefix}/bin/qsampler and you're off (hopefully).
64    
65     Note that the default installation path ${prefix} is /usr/local.
66    
67 capela 2064 If you're checking out from Subversion (SVN), you'll have to prepare the
68     configure script just before you proceed with the above instructions:
69 capela 77
70 capela 2064 make -f Makefile.svn
71 capela 1258
72    
73 capela 77 Configuration
74     -------------
75    
76 capela 1509 Qsampler holds its settings and configuration state per user, in a
77     file located as $HOME/.config/linuxsampler.org/Qsampler.conf .
78     Normally, there's no need to edit this file, as it is recreated and
79     rewritten everytime qsampler is run.
