4     You tried out the young Windows version of LinuxSampler and encountered
5     problems? Check out the

15     Another strike:
16     <list>
17     <li>linuxsampler 0.5.1</li>
18     <li>jsampler 0.8a</li>
19     <li>qsampler 0.2.1</li>
20     <li>gigedit 0.1.1</li>

24     What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
25 schoenebeck 1578 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
26     world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
27     the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
28 schoenebeck 1576 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
29     MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
30 schoenebeck 1578 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
31     feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
32 schoenebeck 1576 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
33     Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
34     fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
35 schoenebeck 1578 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
36     option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
37 schoenebeck 1576 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
38     to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
39 schoenebeck 1578 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
40     and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
41     Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
42     of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
43     encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
44     of bug fixes.

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

53 schoenebeck 1448 <entry date="2007-10-16">
54     A new release wave of the LinuxSampler family has arrived:
55     <list>
56     <li>linuxsampler 0.5.0</li>
57     <li>qsampler 0.1.5</li>
58     <li>jsampler 0.7a</li>
59     <li>gigedit 0.1.0</li>
60     <li>libgig 3.2.0</li>
61     <li>liblscp 0.5.5</li>
62     <li>jlscp 0.6a</li>
63     </list>
64     With our new instrument editor
65     <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
66     we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
67     instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
68     also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
69     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
70     "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
71     instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
72     audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
73     simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
74     clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
75     provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
76     only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
77     change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
78     the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
79     freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
80     each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
81     altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
82     some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
83     certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
84     not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
85     you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
86     order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
87 iliev 1449 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
88 schoenebeck 1448 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
89     allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
90     hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
91     sampler channel at the same time.

223     Due to a design change, current LinuxSampler CVS version is quite unstable.

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

289     Lots of news for the Linuxsampler community. We've got a new site, new

291     <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
292     section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
293     that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
294     of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
295     things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
