2015-04-29 A new documentation site has been launched: - This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us writing documentation for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now hosting an introduction to the new NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language. The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www server to that new site.
2015-01-18 For the Mac users out there: We finally have a convenient installer for the OS X version of LinuxSampler. This is already integrated in our automatic build system. So from now on all daily snapshot builds for Mac are automatically built with an installer. By default the installer will install all components (LinuxSampler stand-alone application, VST and Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and command line tools. At step "Installation Type" you can however also override the default installation and select which components to install.
2014-06-19 gigedit finally included with OS X snapshots! Due to the variety of third party library dependencies it took a while, but finally "gigedit", our graphical instrument editor for Gigasampler / GigaStudio files, is now included with the automatic binary snapshots builds for Mac OS X. The automatic snapshot installers are automatically compiled by one of our servers each time a developer commits something new to our Subversion (development) server. You can use gigedit on Mac OS X as stand-alone instrument editor as well as in live-mode while running LinuxSampler. In the latter case your changes with gigedit get immediately audible while playing the instrument on the keyboard at the same time.
