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

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

51 <b>Important notice:</b>

61 <link ref="http://bugs.linuxsampler.org">Bug Tracker</link> were partly
62 unavailable for quite a while. It was possible to read them, but especially
63 registration of new user accounts were disabled (i.e. due to numerous

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

207 Better a late than no announcement at all:
208 <list>
209 <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>

211 <li>qsampler 0.2.2</li>

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

232 On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
233 friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
234 from our
235 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
236 This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
237 of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and
238 32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
239 appropriate binaries automatically.

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

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

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

573 Lots of news for the Linuxsampler community. We've got a new site, new
574 domain and new code available in CVS. Check the
575 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
576 section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
577 that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
578 of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
579 things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
