2019-09-17 New NKSP core language features in the latest development version: Support for Real Numbers, Standard Units and Finalness ...
2019-07-27 LinuxSampler 2.1.1 had been released. This is mainly a maintenance release. See the release notes for details.
2019-03-10 The macOS Installer has been modernized e.g. using now Gtk 3 for Gigedit and Qt 5 for QSampler and a modern C++11 capable compiler. Support for ancient PowerPC Macs and 32-bit Intel Macs has been dropped for that reason. So all Mac snapshot builds starting from today onwards will require a 64-bit Intel Mac with at least macOS 10.7 or higher. If you still have one of those ancient Macs and can't find an old snapshot build on our website that still works for your old Mac, then you may write us on the mailing list.
2017-11-26 LinuxSampler 2.1.0 had been released after two years of development. Check the release notes for a detailed review of what's new with LinuxSampler and friends.

* gig engine: Fixed potential crash with polynomial interpolator and max. pitch.
* Bumped version (2.1.1.svn39).
2020-01-12 schoenebeck
* NKSP: Removed upper value constraint for 2nd argument of built-in functions "change_amp_lfo_freq()", "change_cutoff_lfo_freq()", "change_pitch_lfo_freq()","change_reso()", "change_cutoff()", "change_amp_lfo_depth()", "change_cutoff_lfo_depth()" and "change_pitch_lfo_depth()", to allow e.g. passing value 2000000 to double the LFO frequency / resonance / cutoff frequency.
* Bumped version (2.1.1.svn38).
2020-01-11 schoenebeck
NKSP: Fixed crash with built-in functions returning an array.
* Calling built-in functions returning an array type was broken and caused a crash when built-in function's NULL (supposed to be array) result value was used by the script VM.
* Bumped version (2.1.1.svn37).
2020-01-08 schoenebeck
Fixed compile errors with C++17:
* std::ptr_fun was removed from STL in C++17, use C++11 lambda expression instead.
* std::mem_fun and std::bind2nd were removed from STL in C++17, use C++11 lambda expression instead.
* Bumped version (2.1.1.svn36).
2020-01-04 schoenebeck
* Added support for 'null function RPN/NRPN' (which is RPN/NRPN parameter MSB=127 and LSB=127, and which is disabling subsequent data entry/increment/decrement CC messages.

2020-01-04 schoenebeck

2020-01-03 schoenebeck
* NKSP: Fixed certain built-in variables having returned some (seemingly random) metric unit factor (instead of none).

* gig.cpp: Added methods Region::UsesAnyGigFormatExtension(), Instrument::UsesAnyGigFormatExtension() and File::UsesAnyGigFormatExtension() (as private methods for now, see comments on methods for reason why).

* Autoconf: require at least a C++11 compliant compiler.
* gig.cpp/.h: GIG FORMAT EXTENSION: Added attributes DimensionRegion::LFO1WaveForm, DimensionRegion::LFO2WaveForm and DimensionRegion::LFO3WaveForm, which allow to override LFOs' default wave form (e.g. saw or square instead of the default wave form which was always sine in the original Gigasampler/GigaStudio software).
* gig.cpp/.h: GIG FORMAT EXTENSION: Added attributes DimensionRegion::LFO1Phase, DimensionRegion::LFO2Phase and DimensionRegion::LFO3Phase, which allow to move the start point horizontally of the LFOs' waves on the time axis (0° ... 360°).
