* Preparations for Qt5 migration. (TESTING)
1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------
3
4 Qsampler is a LinuxSampler GUI front-end application written in C++ around
5 the Qt4 toolkit using Qt Designer. At the moment it just wraps as a client
6 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 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 http://qt-project.org/
33
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 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 ${prefix}/share/pixmaps/qsampler.png
60 ${prefix}/share/applications/qsampler.desktop
61 ${prefix}/share/locale/qsampler_*.qm
62
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 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
70 make -f Makefile.svn
71
72
73 Configuration
74 -------------
75
76 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.
80
81
82 Bugs
83 ----
84
85 Plenty as this is still alpha software. Bug reports should be posted on
86 LinuxSampler bug tracker (http://bugs.linuxsampler.org).
87
88
89 Support
90 -------
91
92 Qsampler is open source free software. For bug reports, feature requests,
93 discussion forums, mailling lists, or any other matter related to the
94 development of this piece of software, please use the LinuxSampler project
95 site (http://www.linuxsampler.org).
96
97
98 Enjoy.
