Re: opensource sample lib format

I haven't yet had time to play around with the new engine(s) and look into the work that's been done in depth. But I would wager a guess, that for the time being, the following opcodes can be considered implemented by the engine:

sample=
lokey=
hikey=
key=
lovel=
hivel=

Re: opensource sample lib format

Just to be clear: It is really early days for the sfz engine, basically the only thing it currently do is triggering samples. The impressive work Grigor have done is to refactor the GIG engine code so that it can be reused by the new SFZ and SF2 engines. It was all committed to CVS as it started to ...

Yes, the group header, as it's called, is supported. It act as a template for the regions that follow it until a new group header is defined.

Yes. It's a known issue (or rather omission on my part). Currently the SFZ reader (based on my sfz.cpp/sfz.h reader) only accept MIDI note numbers and not literal note names.

Re: opensource sample lib format

While I guess the GIG format supports internally defined bank and program numbers for its instruments Yes, I used this feature once to create a gigantic VSL string file including ALL violin samples organized in bank and instruments - just as a proof of concept. With bank and program change you coul...

Re: opensource sample lib format

I am really glad to see this being talked about. I am not sure when I can actually get time to try to convert a VSL performance instrument but it must be done :) And hopefully I will be able to make a conversion of Kirk Hunter's Sapphire Orchestra so that there will be an inexpensive ($89) orchestr...

Re: opensource sample lib format

I am not sure about is that it looks sfz does not support banks. Or am I wrong? Not sure what you mean. There's one instrument per SFZ definition file. While I guess the GIG format supports internally defined bank and program numbers for its instruments, but LinuxSampler do not use any of that meta...

Re: opensource sample lib format

Not forget about implementing legato, or even a true legato, instrument, in GIG you need something external like performance tool, in SFZ you can implement it direcly in the definition file. OK. Let's talk about how to do that for real. I would love to convert my performance set from VSL over. So w...

Re: Status? (of new sampler format)

will the new sfz engine support commercial libraries, for example Garritan, and is there a timline for the release with the new engine? If the sample devlopers release their sample pools in a format we can read (usually WAV or AIFF), LinuxSampler will be able to play them. However, Garritans librar...

Re: opensource sample lib format

While this is really neat - I doubt that anyone will put effort in sample instruments that use all this features. Especially since SFZ has no copy protection (same with any open format, I guess). You could also buy GPO by Garritan and use the included Aria player which is a perfect SFZ Player for l...
