2     .SH NAME
3     wav2gig \- Create GigaStudio (.gig) file from a set of WAV files.
4     .SH SYNOPSIS
5     .B wav2gig
6     [ OPTIONS ] GIG_FILE WAV_FILE_OR_DIR_1 [ WAV_FILE_OR_DIR_2 ... ]
7     .SH DESCRIPTION
8     Takes a list of wave (.wav) files and / or directories containing wave files as
9     argument(s) and creates one new GigaStudio / GigaSampler (.gig) file for those
10     samples.
11    
12     The created GigaStudio (.gig) file will contain the given input samples. The
13     samples' meta information like loop points are automatically extracted from the
14     input wave files and applied accordingly.
15    
16     Additionally this tool creates exactly one instrument inside the newly created
17     GigaStudio (.gig) file and tries to automatically map the samples in a
18     meaningful way to that instrument. As the wave (.wav) format currently does not
19     support many of the meta information required for this particular task, this
20     tool tries to guess the required information from the individual sample's name
21     for mapping the samples accordingly. See
22     .BR SAMPLE
23     .BR NAMES
24     below for details on the currently supported and assumed naming scheme for the
25     input sample files.
26    
27     .SH OPTIONS
28     .TP
29     .B \ GIG_FILE
30     GigaStudio / GigaSampler (.gig) filename to be created
31     .TP
32     .B \ WAV_FILE_OR_DIR_1
33     Filename or directory containing wave (.wav) file(s)
34     .TP
35     .B \ WAV_FILE_OR_DIR_2
36     Filename or directory containing wave (.wav) file(s)
37     .TP
38     .B \ -r
39     Recurse through all subdirectories of provided input WAV directories.
40     .TP
41     .B \ -f
42     Overwrite output GigaStudio (.gig) file in case it already exists.
43     .TP
44     .B \ -v
45     Print version and exit.
46    
47     .SH SAMPLE NAMES
48     Right now this tool assumes the following sample naming scheme for being able to
49     automatically map samples to regions on the keyboard, as well as mapping them to
50     velocity splits adequately:
51    
52     .B NAME1 - NAME2 - VELOCITY_NR - NOTE_NR - NOTE_NAME
53    
54     Which are interpreted in the following way:
55    
56     .TP
57     .B \ NAME1
58     Primary name of the sample (e.g. "Violin").
59    
60     This is not interpreted for sample mapping, but it will be used to assemble the
61     final sample name inside the GigaStudio (.gig) file.
62    
63     .TP
64     .B \ NAME2
65     Secondary name of the sample (e.g. "Cresc").
66    
67     This is currently ignored, but might be used in future.
68    
69     .TP
70     .B \ VELOCITY_NR
71     MIDI Velocity number of the sample (e.g. "18").
72    
73     This informtion will be used to automatically create velocity splits.
74    
75     .TP
76     .B \ NOTE_NR
77     MIDI Note number of the sample (e.g. "021" for note a-1).
78    
79     This informtion will be used to automatically map the sample to a region on the
80     keyboard.
81    
82     .TP
83     .B \ NOTE_NAME
84     Note name of the sample (e.g. "a-1").
85    
86     This is not interpreted for sample mapping, but it will be used to assemble the
87     final sample name inside the GigaStudio (.gig) file.
