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

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

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

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

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

82 A new documentation site has been launched:
83 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org">http://doc.linuxsampler.org</link> -
84 This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of
85 articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write
86 and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us
87 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Writing_Docs/">writing documentation</link>
88 for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now
89 hosting an introduction to the new
90 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Instrument_Scripts/NKSP_Language/">NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language</link>.
91 The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www
92 server to that new site.

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

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

121 <link ref="sfz/">Added SFZ implementation status page.</link>
122 We are currently in the works to implement support for the SFZ format,
123 which is a powerful and open sample library format, already adopted by
124 many commercial samplers. Check our new SFZ status page to see which
125 aspects of the format are already supported by LinuxSampler, and which
126 ones are yet to be implemented.

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

145 From now on, our source code is managed by a Subversion server. We
146 converted our existing CVS repository for the
147 <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">new Subversion server</link>, so
148 the complete history from the beginning of this project is also
149 available in this new Subversion repository. Our
150 <link ref="http://cvs.linuxsampler.org">old CVS server, along with its web frontend</link>
151 is still available, however is now in read only mode, so no changes can be
152 commited to CVS anymore. On the downloads page you can find
153 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html#svn">instructions how
154 to download ("checkout") source code from our Subversion server.</link>

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

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

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

200 Better a late than no announcement at all:
201 <list>
202 <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>
203 <li>Fantasia 0.9</li>
204 <li>qsampler 0.2.2</li>

207 <li>jlscp 0.8</li>
208 <li>liblscp 0.5.6</li>
209 </list>
210 This is the first release which allows the sampler to be used as audio
211 host plugin, namely supporting the standards VST, AU, DSSI and LV2. The
212 sampler's limits for max. voices &amp; disk streams can now be altered at
213 runtime by frontends, no need to recompile the sampler anymore. The Mac
214 version now also supports CoreAudio as audio driver. The Windows version
215 finally supports the sampler's instruments DB feature as well, however
216 expect it still to be unstable at this point. Along to the already
217 existing JACK audio driver, Jack MIDI support has been added in this
218 release. The sampler allows frontends now basic MIDI control, that is to
219 monitor incoming MIDI data on MIDI input devices and sampler channels and
220 to send note-on and note-off MIDI events to sampler channels, which
221 allows frontends to provide a virtual MIDI keyboard to the user. Besides
222 these major changes there were countless bugfixes and optimizations.

225 On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
226 friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
227 from our
228 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
229 This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
230 of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and
231 32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
232 appropriate binaries automatically.

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

301 What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
302 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
303 world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
304 the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
305 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
306 MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
307 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
308 feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
309 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
310 Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
311 fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
312 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
313 option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
314 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
315 to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
316 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
317 and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
318 Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
319 of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
320 encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
321 of bug fixes.

340 </list>
341 With our new instrument editor
342 <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
343 we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
344 instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
345 also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
346 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
347 "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
348 instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
349 audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
350 simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
351 clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
352 provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
353 only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
354 change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
355 the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
356 freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
357 each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
358 altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
359 some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
360 certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
361 not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
362 you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
363 order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
364 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
365 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
366 allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
367 hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
368 sampler channel at the same time.

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

567 domain and new code available in CVS. Check the
568 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
569 section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
570 that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
571 of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
572 things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
