This could be due to bug #120. You can try the patch I proposed there.


Nope, Qtractor still freezes when exiting after removing the LS plugin instance.

I've been working on this (case 2) today. The reason the process hangs is that the InstrumentManagerThread refuses to die. The destructor of the static instance of it is run when QTractor unloads the LS library. The destructor calls pthread_cancel, but the thread seems to ignore it. I don't understand why.

Does that mean only 1 sound/articulation per instance? I hoped we could use one instance in a Reaper track and use its 16 Midi-channels for 16 different gig-sounds/articulation which would be perfect for scoring.

Will there be a Windows beta, too?

No! I meant just the opposite. One VSTi instance may have many channels. These channels can all be loaded with different sounds, and they can be configured to listen to different MIDI channels. (By "it should not be used..." above I meant "adding extra instances should not be used...".)

Yes, that works.

Is there a Windows (32-bit) binary of the VSTi plugin for people to download and try out?

It just seems to be that way: it's too late to use pthread_cancel during lib unloading time. I just committed a fix for this.

Did somebody compile the win vst and can share it for testing?

I read the instructions for buliding it but frankly I don't understand everything.

Will it be a problem to offer the vsti as a download because of copyright issues with Steinberg?

There are so many shareware or even free VST plugins available that I can't think they are very restrictive.

I think we're finally ready to roll out a new official release of the LinuxSampler family in the next weeks. We hunted all release critical bugs down now. The only missing things are two ASIO bugs then we can finally throw a new release out and with it a new Windows installer (including LS VST) of course.

:)

Will LS VST be 32bit or will there also be a 64bit version?
