11     Then Andrew Coughlan's <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/lscp2idf">lscp2idf scripts</link>
12     might help you to automatically extract MIDI instruments from LSCP files to
13 schoenebeck 3322 the MusE sequencer's IDF format, which can be helpful for patch changes
14 schoenebeck 3320 in that sequencer.

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

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

36     <link ref="http://bb.linuxsampler.org">Web Forum</link> as well as our
37     <link ref="http://bugs.linuxsampler.org">Bug Tracker</link> were partly
38     unavailable for quite a while. It was possible to read them, but especially
39     registration of new user accounts were disabled (i.e. due to numerous
40     spam bot attacks we suffered in the past). Those issues have been
41     resolved and so both sites are back available and should now work entirely
42     as expected.

65 schoenebeck 2755 A new documentation site has been launched:
66     <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org">http://doc.linuxsampler.org</link> -
67     This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of
68     articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write
69     and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us
70     <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Writing_Docs/">writing documentation</link>
71     for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now
72     hosting an introduction to the new
73     <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Instrument_Scripts/NKSP_Language/">NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language</link>.
74     The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www
75     server to that new site.

79     For the Mac users out there: We finally have a convenient installer for the
80     OS X version of LinuxSampler. This is already integrated in our automatic
81     build system. So from now on all
82     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/osx/snapshots/">daily snapshot builds for Mac</link>
83     are automatically built with an installer. By default the installer will
84     install all components (LinuxSampler stand-alone application, VST and
85 schoenebeck 2714 Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and
86 schoenebeck 2713 command line tools. At step "Installation Type" you can however also
87     override the default installation and select which components to install.

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

105     We are currently in the works to implement support for the SFZ format,
106     which is a powerful and open sample library format, already adopted by
107     many commercial samplers. Check our new SFZ status page to see which
108     aspects of the format are already supported by LinuxSampler, and which
109     ones are yet to be implemented.

114 persson 2214 Following our ongoing sympathy for automatic snapshots, we finally provide
115     automatic builds also for Apple OS X! As soon as some developer commits
116 schoenebeck 2213 something new to our Subversion server, a new binary snapshot for OS X will
117     automatically be available for download from our webserver within minutes.
118     The snapshot tbz2 archive file contains universal binaries
119 persson 2214 (PPC 32 bit, Intel 32 &amp; 64 bit) of the stand-alone version of the
120 schoenebeck 2213 sampler, VST and AU plugin version, and the graphical frontend applications
121     QSampler and Fantasia. Only our graphical instrument editor gigedit is not
122     yet part of the snapshots, it might follow at a later point. Please read
123     the README file in the tbz2 archive file for instructions how to install
124     everything on your Mac.

128     From now on, our source code is managed by a Subversion server. We
129     converted our existing CVS repository for the
130     <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">new Subversion server</link>, so
131     the complete history from the beginning of this project is also
132     available in this new Subversion repository. Our
133     <link ref="http://cvs.linuxsampler.org">old CVS server, along with its web frontend</link>
134     is still available, however is now in read only mode, so no changes can be
135     commited to CVS anymore. On the downloads page you can find

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

149     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/win32/snapshots/">Download the latest Windows snapshot of the sampler!</link>
150     Since we have to confess that we are a bit lazy about putting out official
151     releases, and since the latest official release of the sampler for Windows
152     is quite old, we decided to establish automatic builts of the sampler and
153     all other software components for Windows. As soon as some developer
154     commits something new to the CVS server for any of the project's software
155     components, a new snapshot binary for Windows will automatically built and
156 schoenebeck 2173 be available for download within few minutes. Sorry for neglecting you
157 schoenebeck 2161 Windows users out there for so long!

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

171     LinuxSampler is featured in the october special issue of the "Computer Music"
172     magazine. It is available in English language in magazine stores around the
173     UK. This special issue focused on demonstrating the "best free software" for

183     Better a late than no announcement at all:
184     <list>
185     <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>

192     </list>
193     This is the first release which allows the sampler to be used as audio
194     host plugin, namely supporting the standards VST, AU, DSSI and LV2. The
195     sampler's limits for max. voices &amp; disk streams can now be altered at
196     runtime by frontends, no need to recompile the sampler anymore. The Mac
197     version now also supports CoreAudio as audio driver. The Windows version
198     finally supports the sampler's instruments DB feature as well, however
199     expect it still to be unstable at this point. Along to the already
200     existing JACK audio driver, Jack MIDI support has been added in this
201     release. The sampler allows frontends now basic MIDI control, that is to
202     monitor incoming MIDI data on MIDI input devices and sampler channels and
203     to send note-on and note-off MIDI events to sampler channels, which
204     allows frontends to provide a virtual MIDI keyboard to the user. Besides
205     these major changes there were countless bugfixes and optimizations.

208     On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
209     friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
210     from our
211     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
212     This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
213     of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and
214     32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
215     appropriate binaries automatically.

253     Hey Mac Users! We hope to give you a good way to start the new year
254     by announcing that LinuxSampler is now officially
255     available for OS X as well! You find an installer (disk image) of the
256     latest release of LinuxSampler and QSampler for OS X on our

258     Please note: gigedit is not yet available for Mac, we still need to do some

284     What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
285 schoenebeck 1578 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
286     world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
287     the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
288 schoenebeck 1576 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
289     MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
290 schoenebeck 1578 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
291     feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
292 schoenebeck 1576 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
293     Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
294     fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
295 schoenebeck 1578 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
296     option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
297 schoenebeck 1576 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
298     to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
299 schoenebeck 1578 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
300     and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
301     Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
302     of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
303     encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
304     of bug fixes.

314     A new release wave of the LinuxSampler family has arrived:

324     With our new instrument editor
325     <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
326     we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
327     instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
328     also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
329     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
330     "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
331     instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
332     audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
333     simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
334     clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
335     provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
336     only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
337     change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
338     the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
339     freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
340     each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
341     altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
342     some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
