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

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

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

78 <b>Important notice:</b>

88 <link ref="http://bugs.linuxsampler.org">Bug Tracker</link> were partly
89 unavailable for quite a while. It was possible to read them, but especially
90 registration of new user accounts were disabled (i.e. due to numerous
91 spam bot attacks we suffered in the past). Those issues have been
92 resolved and so both sites are back available and should now work entirely

116 A new documentation site has been launched:
117 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org">http://doc.linuxsampler.org</link> -
118 This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of
119 articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write
120 and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us
121 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Writing_Docs/">writing documentation</link>
122 for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now
123 hosting an introduction to the new
124 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Instrument_Scripts/NKSP_Language/">NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language</link>.
125 The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www
126 server to that new site.

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

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

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

165 Following our ongoing sympathy for automatic snapshots, we finally provide
166 automatic builds also for Apple OS X! As soon as some developer commits
167 something new to our Subversion server, a new binary snapshot for OS X will
168 automatically be available for download from our webserver within minutes.
169 The snapshot tbz2 archive file contains universal binaries
170 (PPC 32 bit, Intel 32 &amp; 64 bit) of the stand-alone version of the
171 sampler, VST and AU plugin version, and the graphical frontend applications
172 QSampler and Fantasia. Only our graphical instrument editor gigedit is not
173 yet part of the snapshots, it might follow at a later point. Please read
174 the README file in the tbz2 archive file for instructions how to install
175 everything on your Mac.

179 From now on, our source code is managed by a Subversion server. We
180 converted our existing CVS repository for the
181 <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">new Subversion server</link>, so
182 the complete history from the beginning of this project is also
183 available in this new Subversion repository. Our
184 <link ref="http://cvs.linuxsampler.org">old CVS server, along with its web frontend</link>
185 is still available, however is now in read only mode, so no changes can be
186 commited to CVS anymore. On the downloads page you can find
187 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html#svn">instructions how
188 to download ("checkout") source code from our Subversion server.</link>

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

201 Since we have to confess that we are a bit lazy about putting out official
202 releases, and since the latest official release of the sampler for Windows
203 is quite old, we decided to establish automatic builts of the sampler and
204 all other software components for Windows. As soon as some developer
205 commits something new to the CVS server for any of the project's software
206 components, a new snapshot binary for Windows will automatically built and
207 be available for download within few minutes. Sorry for neglecting you
208 Windows users out there for so long!

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

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

234 Better a late than no announcement at all:
235 <list>
236 <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>
237 <li>Fantasia 0.9</li>
238 <li>qsampler 0.2.2</li>

241 <li>jlscp 0.8</li>
242 <li>liblscp 0.5.6</li>
243 </list>
244 This is the first release which allows the sampler to be used as audio
245 host plugin, namely supporting the standards VST, AU, DSSI and LV2. The
246 sampler's limits for max. voices &amp; disk streams can now be altered at
247 runtime by frontends, no need to recompile the sampler anymore. The Mac
248 version now also supports CoreAudio as audio driver. The Windows version
249 finally supports the sampler's instruments DB feature as well, however
250 expect it still to be unstable at this point. Along to the already
251 existing JACK audio driver, Jack MIDI support has been added in this
252 release. The sampler allows frontends now basic MIDI control, that is to
253 monitor incoming MIDI data on MIDI input devices and sampler channels and
254 to send note-on and note-off MIDI events to sampler channels, which
255 allows frontends to provide a virtual MIDI keyboard to the user. Besides
256 these major changes there were countless bugfixes and optimizations.

259 On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
260 friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
261 from our
262 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
263 This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
264 of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and
265 32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
266 appropriate binaries automatically.

335 What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
336 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
337 world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
338 the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
339 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
340 MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
341 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
342 feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
343 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
344 Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
345 fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
346 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
347 option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
348 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
349 to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
350 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
351 and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
352 Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
353 of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
354 encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
355 of bug fixes.

375 With our new instrument editor
376 <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
377 we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
378 instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
379 also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
380 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
381 "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
382 instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
383 audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
384 simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
385 clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
386 provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
387 only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
388 change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
389 the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
390 freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
391 each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
392 altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
393 some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
394 certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
395 not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
396 you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
397 order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
398 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
399 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
400 allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
401 hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
402 sampler channel at the same time.

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