    LinuxSampler AU plugin for OS X, testers needed

    Hi,
    some news from the opensource LinuxSampler:
    one of our developers, Grigor Iliev, implemented an Audio Unit driver for LinuxSampler and put a test version online, and we are looking for volounteers for testing it and providing us with feedback.
    For those not familiar with LinuxSampler, it's a free, open source sampler which works on Linux,Windows and OS X and supports the .GIG v2 and v3 format.

    VST under Windows was implemented a few months ago and works well (no official binary released yet) so when we finally put out the new release it will come with VST and AU support of of the box.


    Here is his Grigor's posting on the linuxsampler development mailing list:

    Hi all,
    I'm working to add support for running LinuxSampler as AudioUnit
    plugin, but before releasing it I'll appreciate some testing and
    feedback.
    Here is the first test release:
    http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev...U_20090217.zip

    Note that due to bug #118 the plugin will crash if you use the latest
    build of either qsampler or jsampler.
    For qsampler you should use a build before 2008-12-07 and for jsampler
    before 2008-12-24.
    It is safe to use jsampler v0.8a-cvs5:
    http://downloads.sourceforge.net/jsa...-0.8a-cvs5.jar

    Installation: unzip it and move it to
    /Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/ or
    ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/

    To run jsampler on mac you need to download and install Java SE 6:
    http://www.apple.com/support/downloa...05update2.html
    To make it default go to /Applications/Utilities/Java and run the Java
    Preferences application. In Java application version section there is
    a list of all installed java versions. Just drag Java SE 6 on top of
    the list.

    For those of you having 32bit intel Macs may try the open-source port
    of Java 6 to Mac OS X:

    -----

    You need to load first the AU plugin within the sequencer and then start the LinuxSampler GUI frontend (Fantasia).

    For anyone willing to provide feedback and suggestions about the AU plugin please contact Grigor directly by email (his email address can be found in the LS developers page)

    http://www.linuxsampler.org/developers.html

    or alternatively use the LS forum or mailing list.

    thanks,
    Benno

    FYI:
    here is the thread in the sampler's online forum where you can provide feedback to the plugin developer:
    https://bb.linuxsampler.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=295

    We suggest you to try it out under various hosts and hardware and report success, failure, bugs, give suggestions for improvement etc

    thanks for your feedback,
    Benno
