127     LinuxSampler is a work in progress. The goal is to produce a free, open source pure software audio sampler
128     with professional grade features, comparable to both hardware and commercial Windows/Mac software samplers
129     and to introduce new features not yet available by any other sampler in the world.<br>
130     <br>
131     LinuxSampler was designed as a sampler backend, decoupled from any user interface. It provides a network interface
132     using an ASCII based protocol called <a href="http://www.linuxsampler.org/api/draft-linuxsampler-protocol.html">LSCP</a>
133 schoenebeck 585 for controlling the sampler and managing sampler sessions. But don't be afraid, with QSampler we
134 senoner 542 already have a convenient GUI frontend (based on the cross-platform GUI library Qt) for LinuxSampler and due to the
135     decoupled design you can even control the sampler with the GUI frontend from another computer, probably even running
136 schoenebeck 585 another OS like Windows or OS X. Beside our own custom network control layer we planned to add existing ones as well
137 senoner 542 (e.g. <a href="http://www.cnmat.berkeley.edu/OpenSoundControl/">OSC</a>). With the planned SMP and cluster support
138 schoenebeck 585 LinuxSampler might become a very interesting tool for high-end studios and concerts in future.<br>
139 senoner 542 <br>
140     It is planned to support all common sampler formats in LinuxSampler, but at the moment we chose to concentrate on the
141     Gigasampler format, because we think it's currently the best sampler format in regards of quality and power, especially
142     for the synthesis of natural instruments like pianos, brass and bowed instruments. But we already made good advance in
143     implementing this format, so we are optimistic to start with adding other formats soon. Beside that we also planned to
144     design our own, sophisticated sampler format to introduce a more powerful and more flexible sampler format compared to
145     any sampler format currently available in the world. Be encouraged to share your ideas about such a new format with us!<br>
146     <br>
147     Anyway, there are so many things to do and our hands are limited. So don't hesitate on participating to the project!
