4     A new release wave of the LinuxSampler family has arrived:
5     <list>
6     <li>linuxsampler 0.5.0</li>
7     <li>qsampler 0.1.5</li>
8     <li>jsampler 0.7a</li>
9     <li>gigedit 0.1.0</li>
10     <li>libgig 3.2.0</li>
11     <li>liblscp 0.5.5</li>
12     <li>jlscp 0.6a</li>
13     </list>
14     With our new instrument editor
15     <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
16     we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
17     instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
18     also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
19     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
20     "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
21     instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
22     audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
23     simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
24     clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
25     provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
26     only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
27     change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
28     the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
29     freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
30     each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
31     altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
32     some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
33     certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
34     not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
35     you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
36     order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
37     feature as "Orchestras" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
38     Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
39     allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
40     hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
41     sampler channel at the same time.

115     Major services (CVS, downloads, Bug Tracking System) were down in the last
116     days due to a hardware defect on one of our servers. CVS is finally up
117     again and we are working on restoring all other services in the next days
118     as well. We are also establishing further backup facilities to prevent this
119     happening again. Sorry for any inconvenience!

167     the Qt GUI front-end in the works for the LinuxSampler engine, was bumped
168     to its now fifth primordial release (0.0.5). Still alpha code. Time to move
169     on... to a better and complete Audio/MIDI device configuration interface,
170     as predicted by LSCP and wrapped by liblscp.

173     Due to a design change, current LinuxSampler CVS version is quite unstable.
174     You might want to use the previous, stable version of LS in the meantime,
175     which can be downloaded as
176     <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">source tarball
177     </link>. Alternatively you can also checkout the old version from CVS which
178     was tagged as "v0_2_0".

210     We are currently in a transition stage due to the recent changes (multi
211     channel / multi engine / multi audio output device and multi MIDI input
212     device support) this also leads to multi problems we have to solve ;-) so
213     meanwhile you can use the old single channel version. We created the two
214     CVS alias tags 'singlechannel' and 'v0_1_0' which you can use to checkout
215     the old single channel version of LinuxSampler. The CVS command line is the
216     same except that you have to add '-r singlechannel'.

219     CVS root path has changed! See <link ref="downloads.html">downloads</link>

224     Updated <link ref="features.html">features</link> section on this site,

229     The document for the network protocol definition is now available in the

232     LinuxSampler!

235     Added CVS log to this site, showing the latest commits to the LinuxSampler
236     CVS repository.
237     </entry>
238     <entry date="2003-11-02">
239     Lots of news for the Linuxsampler community. We've got a new site, new
240     domain and new code available in CVS. Check the
241     <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
242     section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
243     that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
244     of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
245     things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
