124 <h2>General</h2>
125 <p class="default">
126 LinuxSampler is a work in progress. The goal is to produce a free, open source pure software audio sampler
127 with professional grade features, comparable to both hardware and commercial Windows/Mac software samplers
128 and to introduce new features not yet available by any other sampler in the world.<br>
129 <br>
130 LinuxSampler was designed as a sampler backend, decoupled from any user interface. It provides a network interface
131 using an ASCII based protocol called <a href="http://www.linuxsampler.org/api/draft-linuxsampler-protocol.html">LSCP</a>
132 for controlling the sampler and managing sampler sessions. But don't be afraid, with QSampler we
133 already have a convenient GUI frontend (based on the cross-platform GUI library Qt) for LinuxSampler and due to the
134 decoupled design you can even control the sampler with the GUI frontend from another computer, probably even running
135 another OS like Windows or OS X. Beside our own custom network control layer we planned to add existing ones as well
136 (e.g. <a href="http://www.cnmat.berkeley.edu/OpenSoundControl/">OSC</a>). With the planned SMP and cluster support
137 LinuxSampler might become a very interesting tool for high-end studios and concerts in future.<br>
138 <br>
139 It is planned to support all common sampler formats in LinuxSampler, but at the moment we chose to concentrate on the
140 Gigasampler format, because we think it's currently the best sampler format in regards of quality and power, especially
141 for the synthesis of natural instruments like pianos, brass and bowed instruments. But we already made good advance in
142 implementing this format, so we are optimistic to start with adding other formats soon. Beside that we also planned to
143 design our own, sophisticated sampler format to introduce a more powerful and more flexible sampler format compared to
144 any sampler format currently available in the world. Be encouraged to share your ideas about such a new format with us!<br>
145 <br>
146 Anyway, there are so many things to do and our hands are limited. So don't hesitate on participating to the project!
