Aargh! Help an ignorant newbie! (me)

Post by Largo » Mon Jun 04, 2012 12:47 pm

Hello peoplees!

Right, to get to the point, I'm a complete newbie that's looking for a high-quality audio synthesis software for my later to be possibly released film project. I guess my problem is, dispite looking around at many stuff, LinuxSampler looks like my greatest bet.
I actually don't know what LinuxSampler.
Please, I've reading all over the site for almost two days now, and I am just as clueless as I was when I started. Can someone please explain to me what LinuxSampler is? If I am correct, (which I'm probably not) it's some piece of cool software that you make music with right? If I'm right, then could someone please tell me how I could get from a .gig file to a complete simple bit of .wav? One thing LinuxSampler seems to lack is a complete tutorial, and all I see are halfway tutorials. I can't understand anything at all.

Please! If someone knows something I don't, then please tell me!

Linuxsampler will play sounds from loaded sample banks (gigafile, SFZ, or SF2 format) using midi signals (from a midi keyboard or from a midi sequencer program). Here are some good references for linuxsampler:
