10 <p>
11 libgig is a C++ library for loading, modifying existing and creating new
12 Gigasampler (.gig) files and DLS (Downloadable Sounds) Level 1/2 files, KORG sample
13 based instruments (.KSF and .KMP files), SoundFont v2 (.sf2) files and AKAI sampler data.
14 The source code package includes a couple of command line tools based on the
15 library. The library and tools are released in source code format under the
16 <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/gpl.html">GNU General Public License</a>,
17 except the AKAI classes which are released under the
18 <a href="http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/lgpl.html">GNU Lesser General Public License</a>.
19 </p>
20 <p>
21 This library is developed and optimized for POSIX compliant operating
22 systems like Linux and OSX and since release 3.1.1 for Windows as well.
23 libgig was developed to compile on any operating system, though since
24 release 3.0.0 libgig uses one tiny operating system dependant method to
25 be able to resize files. Should be a 5 minute job to implement this method
26 for other operating systems as well though.
