1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------
3
4 Qsampler is a LinuxSampler GUI front-end application written in C++ around
5 the Qt framework 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.

25 Requirements
26 ------------
27
28 The software requirements for build and runtime are listed as follows:
29
30 Mandatory:
31
32 - Qt framework, C++ class library and tools for
33 cross-platform application and UI development
34 https://qt.io/
35
36 - liblscp, C library for LinuxSampler control protocol API.
37 https://www.linuxsampler.org/
38
39 Optional (opted-in at build time):
40
41 - libgig, C++ library for loading and modifying Gigasampler and DLS files.

45 Installation
46 ------------
47
48 The installation procedure follows the standard for source distributions.
49 Unpack the tarball and in the extracted source directory:
50
51 ./configure [--prefix=/usr/local]
52 make
53
54 and optionally as root:
55
56 make install
57
58 This procedure will end installing the following couple of files:
59
60 ${prefix}/bin/qsampler
61 ${prefix}/share/pixmaps/qsampler.png
62 ${prefix}/share/applications/qsampler.desktop
63 ${prefix}/share/locale/qsampler_*.qm
64
65 Just launch ${prefix}/bin/qsampler and you're off (hopefully).
66
67 Note that the default installation path ${prefix} is /usr/local.
68
69 If you're checking out from Git, you'll have to prepare the
70 configure script just before you proceed with the above instructions:
71
72 ./autogen.sh
73
74
75 Configuration
76 -------------
77
78 Qsampler holds its settings and configuration state per user, in a
79 file located as $HOME/.config/linuxsampler.org/Qsampler.conf .
80 Normally, there's no need to edit this file, as it is recreated and
81 rewritten everytime qsampler is run.
82
83
84 Bugs
85 ----
86
87 Plenty as this is still alpha software. Bug reports should be posted on
88 LinuxSampler bug tracker (https://bugs.linuxsampler.org).
89
90
91 Support
92 -------
93
94 Qsampler is open source free software. For bug reports, feature requests,
95 discussion forums, mailling lists, or any other matter related to the
96 development of this piece of software, please use the LinuxSampler project
97 site (https://www.linuxsampler.org).

100 Enjoy.
