New instrument editor: Qgiged

Post by dahnielson » Mon Apr 06, 2009 9:21 am

Just so no one will miss out on this development as it's mainly been discussed on the developer mailing list. Luis Garrido is working on a new Gigastudio like instrument editor called Qgiged:


At this moment it is read-only, meaning that you can only use it to explore the contents of GIG files. No sound or editing capabilities yet.

Sourceforge project:

svn co qgiged


- Make qgiged a LinuxSampler editor plugin so changes can be heard realtime.
- Writing capabilities: modification of an existing GIG and creation of new ones.
- Librarian capabilities: pass objects from one GIG to another.
- WAV analysis: frequency and level.
- Rudimentary WAV edition: trimming, normalization, fade-in/out, loop points analysis and adjusting.
- Undo system.
- GIG creation wizards.


Feedback, discussion, feature requests would be very welcome at the project forums.

Thanks for the post, Anders.

Things are coming along nicely and Christian has been all too kind of removing some pebbles from my road. Qgiged is already able to load and play a gig and I am working on the editing capabilities. I expect it to be usable next summer, if I don't get sidetracked by a paying job.

As stated above, suggestions and comments welcome at the project forums.
