4 The <link ref="https://sourceforge.net/p/linuxsampler/mailman/message/36608653/">macOS Installer has been modernized</link>
5 e.g. using now Gtk 3 for Gigedit and Qt 5 for QSampler and a modern
6 C++11 capable compiler. Support for ancient PPC Macs and 32-bit Intel
7 Macs has been dropped for that reason. So all Mac snapshot builds starting
8 from today onwards will require a 64-bit Intel Mac with at least macOS 10.7 or
9 higher. If you still have one of those ancient Macs and can't find an old
10 snapshot build on our website that still works for your old Mac, then you may
11 write us on the
12 <link ref="https://sourceforge.net/projects/linuxsampler/lists/linuxsampler-devel">mailing list</link>.

21 You are working with <link ref="http://muse-sequencer.org">MusE</link>?
22 Then Andrew Coughlan's <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/lscp2idf">lscp2idf scripts</link>
23 might help you to automatically extract MIDI instruments from LSCP files to
24 the MusE sequencer's IDF format, which can be helpful for patch changes
25 in that sequencer.

28 Services are back online. After reviewing the recent server incident we
29 came to the conclusion that the attack was fortunately quite limited.
30 We rolled back the system, closed the exploited security
31 hole and brought all services back online. In case you downloaded or updated any source files
32 from our <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">svn server</link>
33 between March 2nd and March 3rd, we recommend you to
34 delete the entire source directory and make an entire fresh checkout from
35 svn to avoid any issues. The svn server is now back at a clean state.

38 <b>Important notice:</b>
39 Our server had been compromised. For that reason we were forced to take most
40 services offline for now to protect you from accessing any compromised material.
41 We are currently investigating this incident and will update you accordingly.

44 <link ref="http://bb.linuxsampler.org">Web Forum</link> and
45 <link ref="http://bugs.linuxsampler.org">Bug Tracker</link>
46 are back online: As you might have noticed, our
47 <link ref="http://bb.linuxsampler.org">Web Forum</link> as well as our
48 <link ref="http://bugs.linuxsampler.org">Bug Tracker</link> were partly
49 unavailable for quite a while. It was possible to read them, but especially
50 registration of new user accounts were disabled (i.e. due to numerous
51 spam bot attacks we suffered in the past). Those issues have been
52 resolved and so both sites are back available and should now work entirely
53 as expected.

76 A new documentation site has been launched:
77 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org">http://doc.linuxsampler.org</link> -
78 This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of
79 articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write
80 and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us
81 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Writing_Docs/">writing documentation</link>
82 for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now
83 hosting an introduction to the new
84 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Instrument_Scripts/NKSP_Language/">NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language</link>.
85 The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www
86 server to that new site.

90 For the Mac users out there: We finally have a convenient installer for the
91 OS X version of LinuxSampler. This is already integrated in our automatic
92 build system. So from now on all
93 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/osx/snapshots/">daily snapshot builds for Mac</link>
94 are automatically built with an installer. By default the installer will
95 install all components (LinuxSampler stand-alone application, VST and
96 Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and
97 command line tools. At step "Installation Type" you can however also
98 override the default installation and select which components to install.

102 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/osx/snapshots/">gigedit finally included with OS X snapshots!</link>
103 Due to the variety of third party library dependencies it took a while, but
104 finally "gigedit", our graphical instrument editor for Gigasampler /
105 GigaStudio files, is now included with the automatic binary snapshots builds
106 for Mac OS X. The automatic snapshot installers are automatically compiled
107 by one of our servers each time a developer commits something new to our
108 Subversion (development) server. You can use gigedit on Mac OS X as
109 stand-alone instrument editor as well as in live-mode while running
110 LinuxSampler. In the latter case your changes with gigedit get immediately
111 audible while playing the instrument on the keyboard at the same time.

115 <link ref="sfz/">Added SFZ implementation status page.</link>
116 We are currently in the works to implement support for the SFZ format,
117 which is a powerful and open sample library format, already adopted by
118 many commercial samplers. Check our new SFZ status page to see which
119 aspects of the format are already supported by LinuxSampler, and which
120 ones are yet to be implemented.

124 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/osx/snapshots/">Download the latest OS X snapshot of the sampler!</link>
125 Following our ongoing sympathy for automatic snapshots, we finally provide
126 automatic builds also for Apple OS X! As soon as some developer commits
127 something new to our Subversion server, a new binary snapshot for OS X will
128 automatically be available for download from our webserver within minutes.
129 The snapshot tbz2 archive file contains universal binaries
130 (PPC 32 bit, Intel 32 &amp; 64 bit) of the stand-alone version of the
131 sampler, VST and AU plugin version, and the graphical frontend applications
132 QSampler and Fantasia. Only our graphical instrument editor gigedit is not
133 yet part of the snapshots, it might follow at a later point. Please read
134 the README file in the tbz2 archive file for instructions how to install
135 everything on your Mac.

138 <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org" img="gfx/logos/subversion.png"></link>
139 From now on, our source code is managed by a Subversion server. We
140 converted our existing CVS repository for the
141 <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">new Subversion server</link>, so
142 the complete history from the beginning of this project is also
143 available in this new Subversion repository. Our
144 <link ref="http://cvs.linuxsampler.org">old CVS server, along with its web frontend</link>
145 is still available, however is now in read only mode, so no changes can be
146 commited to CVS anymore. On the downloads page you can find
147 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html#svn">instructions how
148 to download ("checkout") source code from our Subversion server.</link>

152 After a huge down time of almost one month, we decided to move to new, more
153 reliable servers. Thanks to the University of Heilbronn which kindly hosted
154 our servers for 8 years. We started to move the most important services to
155 a commercial server host, which will be financed by your donations. Sorry
156 for this long absence and thank you for your support!

160 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/win32/snapshots/">Download the latest Windows snapshot of the sampler!</link>
161 Since we have to confess that we are a bit lazy about putting out official
162 releases, and since the latest official release of the sampler for Windows
163 is quite old, we decided to establish automatic builts of the sampler and
164 all other software components for Windows. As soon as some developer
165 commits something new to the CVS server for any of the project's software
166 components, a new snapshot binary for Windows will automatically built and
167 be available for download within few minutes. Sorry for neglecting you
168 Windows users out there for so long!

172 In case you are working a lot on Native Instruments Kontakt instrument
173 files, or if you are just interested in the .nki file format, you might have
174 a look at <link ref="nkitool/">nkitool</link>. It is a simple console
175 application which allows to export and import the human readable XML file
176 from and to Native Instruments Kontakt .nki instrument articulation files.
177 It can be very handy to speedup or even automate the process of creating
178 and editing .nki instrument files.

182 LinuxSampler is featured in the october special issue of the "Computer Music"
183 magazine. It is available in English language in magazine stores around the
184 UK. This special issue focused on demonstrating the "best free software" for
185 music production on PC, Mac and mobile. LinuxSampler is covered along to four
186 other samplers, with an introduction howto on page 57. You can

194 Better a late than no announcement at all:
195 <list>
196 <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>
197 <li>Fantasia 0.9</li>
198 <li>qsampler 0.2.2</li>
199 <li>gigedit 0.2.0</li>
200 <li>libgig 3.3.0</li>
201 <li>jlscp 0.8</li>
202 <li>liblscp 0.5.6</li>
203 </list>
204 This is the first release which allows the sampler to be used as audio
205 host plugin, namely supporting the standards VST, AU, DSSI and LV2. The
206 sampler's limits for max. voices &amp; disk streams can now be altered at
207 runtime by frontends, no need to recompile the sampler anymore. The Mac
208 version now also supports CoreAudio as audio driver. The Windows version
209 finally supports the sampler's instruments DB feature as well, however
210 expect it still to be unstable at this point. Along to the already
211 existing JACK audio driver, Jack MIDI support has been added in this
212 release. The sampler allows frontends now basic MIDI control, that is to
213 monitor incoming MIDI data on MIDI input devices and sampler channels and
214 to send note-on and note-off MIDI events to sampler channels, which
215 allows frontends to provide a virtual MIDI keyboard to the user. Besides
216 these major changes there were countless bugfixes and optimizations.

218 <entry date="2009-05-12">
219 On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
220 friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
221 from our
222 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
223 This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
224 of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and
225 32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
226 appropriate binaries automatically.

264 Hey Mac Users! We hope to give you a good way to start the new year
265 by announcing that LinuxSampler is now officially
266 available for OS X as well! You find an installer (disk image) of the
267 latest release of LinuxSampler and QSampler for OS X on our
268 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads site</link>.
269 Please note: gigedit is not yet available for Mac, we still need to do some
270 work on this. Same applies to JSampler unfortunately, because the required
271 Java version 1.6 is not officially available for Mac yet. Have a look
272 at the <link ref="osx.html">OS X HOWTO</link> for an easy start.

286 Another strike:
287 <list>
288 <li>linuxsampler 0.5.1</li>
289 <li>jsampler 0.8a</li>
290 <li>qsampler 0.2.1</li>
291 <li>gigedit 0.1.1</li>
292 <li>libgig 3.2.1</li>
293 <li>jlscp 0.7a</li>
294 </list>
295 What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
296 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
297 world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
298 the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
299 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
300 MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
301 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
302 feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
303 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
304 Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
305 fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
306 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
307 option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
308 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
309 to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
310 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
311 and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
312 Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
313 of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
314 encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
315 of bug fixes.

318 As you might have noticed, we had issues with our linuxsampler.org DNS
319 names in the last two days, because it was dependent to a foreign server
320 out of our control. We just addressed this issue and finally completely
321 moved the DNS responsibility to our own servers to avoid this happening
322 again. Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused!

325 A new release wave of the LinuxSampler family has arrived:
326 <list>
327 <li>linuxsampler 0.5.0</li>
328 <li>qsampler 0.1.5</li>
329 <li>jsampler 0.7a</li>
330 <li>gigedit 0.1.0</li>
331 <li>libgig 3.2.0</li>
332 <li>liblscp 0.5.5</li>
333 <li>jlscp 0.6a</li>
334 </list>
335 With our new instrument editor
336 <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
337 we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
338 instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
339 also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
340 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
341 "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
342 instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
343 audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
344 simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
345 clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
346 provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
347 only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
348 change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
349 the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
350 freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
351 each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
352 altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
353 some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
354 certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
355 not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
356 you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
357 order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
358 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
359 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
360 allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
361 hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
362 sampler channel at the same time.

436 Major services (CVS, downloads, Bug Tracking System) were down in the last
437 days due to a hardware defect on one of our servers. CVS is finally up
438 again and we are working on restoring all other services in the next days
439 as well. We are also establishing further backup facilities to prevent this

491 as predicted by LSCP and wrapped by liblscp.

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

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

560 Lots of news for the Linuxsampler community. We've got a new site, new
561 domain and new code available in CVS. Check the
562 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
563 section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
564 that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
565 of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
566 things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
