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 schoenebeck 3500 C++11 capable compiler. Support for ancient PowerPC Macs and 32-bit Intel
7 schoenebeck 3499 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>.

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 schoenebeck 3322 the MusE sequencer's IDF format, which can be helpful for patch changes
25 schoenebeck 3320 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

41     We are currently investigating this incident and will update you accordingly.

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

52     resolved and so both sites are back available and should now work entirely

76 schoenebeck 2755 A new documentation site has been launched:

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 schoenebeck 2714 Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and
97 schoenebeck 2713 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.

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.

125 persson 2214 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 schoenebeck 2213 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 persson 2214 (PPC 32 bit, Intel 32 &amp; 64 bit) of the stand-alone version of the
131 schoenebeck 2213 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.

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

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 schoenebeck 2173 be available for download within few minutes. Sorry for neglecting you
168 schoenebeck 2161 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

194     Better a late than no announcement at all:
195     <list>
196     <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</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.

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.

296 schoenebeck 1578 <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 schoenebeck 1576 "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 schoenebeck 1578 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
302     feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
303 schoenebeck 1576 <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 schoenebeck 1578 .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 schoenebeck 1576 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
309     to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
310 schoenebeck 1578 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.

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 iliev 1449 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
359 schoenebeck 1448 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.
