4 A new release wave of the LinuxSampler family has arrived:
5 <list>
6 <li>linuxsampler 0.5.0</li>
7 <li>qsampler 0.1.5</li>
8 <li>jsampler 0.7a</li>
9 <li>gigedit 0.1.0</li>
10 <li>libgig 3.2.0</li>
11 <li>liblscp 0.5.5</li>
12 <li>jlscp 0.6a</li>
13 </list>
14 With our new instrument editor
15 <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
16 we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
17 instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
18 also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
19 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
20 "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
21 instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
22 audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
23 simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
24 clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
25 provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
26 only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
27 change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
28 the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
29 freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
30 each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
31 altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
32 some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
33 certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
34 not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
35 you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
36 order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
37 feature as "Orchestras" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
38 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
39 allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
40 hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
41 sampler channel at the same time.

115 Major services (CVS, downloads, Bug Tracking System) were down in the last
116 days due to a hardware defect on one of our servers. CVS is finally up
117 again and we are working on restoring all other services in the next days
118 as well. We are also establishing further backup facilities to prevent this
119 happening again. Sorry for any inconvenience!

137 Due to ongoing synthesis optimizations, CVS version of LS might be broken

143 <entry date="2005-06-24">
144 LinuxSampler 0.3.2 has been released. This is more or less just a bug fix

167 the Qt GUI front-end in the works for the LinuxSampler engine, was bumped
168 to its now fifth primordial release (0.0.5). Still alpha code. Time to move
169 on... to a better and complete Audio/MIDI device configuration interface,
170 as predicted by LSCP and wrapped by liblscp.

172 <entry date="2005-02-26">
173 Due to a design change, current LinuxSampler CVS version is quite unstable.
174 You might want to use the previous, stable version of LS in the meantime,
175 which can be downloaded as
176 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">source tarball
177 </link>. Alternatively you can also checkout the old version from CVS which
178 was tagged as "v0_2_0".

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

218 <entry date="2004-03-26">
219 CVS root path has changed! See <link ref="downloads.html">downloads</link>
220 section for instructions how to checkout the latest version of LinuxSampler
221 from CVS.

223 <entry date="2004-03-23">
224 Updated <link ref="features.html">features</link> section on this site,
225 hopefully we will keep the features list in sync with the latest
226 developments from now on.

229 The document for the network protocol definition is now available in the
230 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
231 section. Have a look at it if you can imagine to write a frontend for
232 LinuxSampler!

235 Added CVS log to this site, showing the latest commits to the LinuxSampler
236 CVS repository.
237 </entry>
238 <entry date="2003-11-02">
239 Lots of news for the Linuxsampler community. We've got a new site, new
240 domain and new code available in CVS. Check the
241 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
242 section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
243 that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
244 of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
245 things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
