2015-07-18 LinuxSampler 2.0.0 had been released after six years of development! Check the release notes for a detailed review of what's new with LinuxSampler and friends.
2015-06-11 The Mac installer was broken on latest OS X 10.10 Yosemite. This had been fixed today. Get the latest snapshot for Mac with Yosemite support now.
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.
