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 C++11 capable compiler. Support for ancient PowerPC Macs and 32-bit Intel
35 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.

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

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

104 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 Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and
125 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.

143 <link ref="sfz/">Added SFZ implementation status page.</link>
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 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 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 (PPC 32 bit, Intel 32 &amp; 64 bit) of the stand-alone version of the
159 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
171 available in this new Subversion repository. Our
172 <link ref="http://cvs.linuxsampler.org">old CVS server, along with its web frontend</link>
173 is still available, however is now in read only mode, so no changes can be
174 commited to CVS anymore. On the downloads page you can find
175 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html#svn">instructions how
176 to download ("checkout") source code from our Subversion server.</link>

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
184 for this long absence and thank you for your support!

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
195 be available for download within few minutes. Sorry for neglecting you
196 Windows users out there for so long!

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

222 Better a late than no announcement at all:
223 <list>
224 <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>
225 <li>Fantasia 0.9</li>
226 <li>qsampler 0.2.2</li>

229 <li>jlscp 0.8</li>
230 <li>liblscp 0.5.6</li>
231 </list>
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.

247 On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
248 friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
249 from our
250 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
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
253 32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
254 appropriate binaries automatically.

323 What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
324 <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 "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 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
330 feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
331 <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 .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 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
337 to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
338 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
339 and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
340 Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
341 of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
342 encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
343 of bug fixes.

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 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
387 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.

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

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