Initial alpha release.

1 qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------
3
4 QSampler is a LinuxSampler GUI front-end application written in C++ around
5 the Qt3 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 Installation
24 ------------
25
26 The installation procedure follows the standard for source distributions.
27 Unpack the tarball and in the extracted source directory:
28
29 ./configure [--prefix=/usr/local]
30 make
31
32 and optionally as root:
33
34 make install
35
36 This procedure will end installing the following couple of files:
37
38 ${prefix}/bin/qsampler
39 ${prefix}/share/icons/qsampler.png
40
41 Just launch ${prefix}/bin/qsampler and you're off (hopefully).
42
43 Note that the default installation path ${prefix} is /usr/local.

45
46 Configuration
47 -------------
48
49 QSampler holds its settings and configuration state per user, in a file
50 located as $HOME/.qt/qsamplerrc. Normally, there's no need to edit this file,
51 as it is recreated and rewritten everytime qsampler is run.
52

56 Plenty still, after all this is early alpha software ;)
