4     Kolja Koch started work on <b>gigcreator</b>, a GUI application that
5     automatically creates a GigaStudio/Gigasampler (.gig) file from a
6     directory of .wav files as input.
7     You find the
8     <link ref="https://gitlab.com/koljakoch/gigcreator">gigcreator project on Gitlab</link>.
9     gigcreator was motivated by libgig's new <b>wav2gig</b> command line tool,
10     with the goal to be more user friendly than wav2gig.

32     The <link ref="https://sourceforge.net/p/linuxsampler/mailman/message/36608653/">macOS Installer has been modernized</link>
33     e.g. using now Gtk 3 for Gigedit and Qt 5 for QSampler and a modern
34 schoenebeck 3500 C++11 capable compiler. Support for ancient PowerPC Macs and 32-bit Intel
35 schoenebeck 3499 Macs has been dropped for that reason. So all Mac snapshot builds starting
36     from today onwards will require a 64-bit Intel Mac with at least macOS 10.7 or
37     higher. If you still have one of those ancient Macs and can't find an old
38     snapshot build on our website that still works for your old Mac, then you may
39     write us on the

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

104 schoenebeck 2755 A new documentation site has been launched:
105     <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org">http://doc.linuxsampler.org</link> -
106     This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of
107     articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write
108     and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us
109     <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Writing_Docs/">writing documentation</link>
110     for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now
111     hosting an introduction to the new
112     <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Instrument_Scripts/NKSP_Language/">NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language</link>.
113     The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www
114     server to that new site.

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

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

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

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

167     From now on, our source code is managed by a Subversion server. We
168     converted our existing CVS repository for the
169     <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">new Subversion server</link>, so
170     the complete history from the beginning of this project is also

180     After a huge down time of almost one month, we decided to move to new, more
181     reliable servers. Thanks to the University of Heilbronn which kindly hosted
182     our servers for 8 years. We started to move the most important services to
183     a commercial server host, which will be financed by your donations. Sorry

189     Since we have to confess that we are a bit lazy about putting out official
190     releases, and since the latest official release of the sampler for Windows
191     is quite old, we decided to establish automatic builts of the sampler and
192     all other software components for Windows. As soon as some developer
193     commits something new to the CVS server for any of the project's software
194     components, a new snapshot binary for Windows will automatically built and

222     Better a late than no announcement at all:

232     This is the first release which allows the sampler to be used as audio
233     host plugin, namely supporting the standards VST, AU, DSSI and LV2. The
234     sampler's limits for max. voices &amp; disk streams can now be altered at
235     runtime by frontends, no need to recompile the sampler anymore. The Mac
236     version now also supports CoreAudio as audio driver. The Windows version
237     finally supports the sampler's instruments DB feature as well, however
238     expect it still to be unstable at this point. Along to the already
239     existing JACK audio driver, Jack MIDI support has been added in this
240     release. The sampler allows frontends now basic MIDI control, that is to
241     monitor incoming MIDI data on MIDI input devices and sampler channels and
242     to send note-on and note-off MIDI events to sampler channels, which
243     allows frontends to provide a virtual MIDI keyboard to the user. Besides
244     these major changes there were countless bugfixes and optimizations.

251     This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
252     of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and

324 schoenebeck 1578 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
325     world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
326     the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
327 schoenebeck 1576 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
328     MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
329 schoenebeck 1578 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
330     feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
331 schoenebeck 1576 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
332     Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
333     fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
334 schoenebeck 1578 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
335     option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
336 schoenebeck 1576 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
337     to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from

353     A new release wave of the LinuxSampler family has arrived:
354     <list>
355     <li>linuxsampler 0.5.0</li>
356     <li>qsampler 0.1.5</li>
357     <li>jsampler 0.7a</li>
358     <li>gigedit 0.1.0</li>
359     <li>libgig 3.2.0</li>
360     <li>liblscp 0.5.5</li>
361     <li>jlscp 0.6a</li>
362     </list>
363     With our new instrument editor
364     <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
365     we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
366     instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
367     also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
368     <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
369     "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
370     instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
371     audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
372     simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
373     clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
374     provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
375     only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
376     change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
377     the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
378     freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
379     each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
380     altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
381     some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
382     certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
383     not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
384     you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
385     order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
386 iliev 1449 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
387 schoenebeck 1448 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
388     allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
389     hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
390     sampler channel at the same time.
