LinuxSampler
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Name: LinuxSampler
Homepage: http://www.linuxsampler.org
LinuxSampler provides a sampler audio plugin suitable for use in Ardour and Bitwig Studio. It can load GigaStudio/GigaSampler, SoundFont, and SFZ sample instruments. Currently, there is no other plugin that loads any of these three formats.
Open Source: Yes
Users: The same userbase that finds Ardour and Bitwig useful may also find LinuxSampler of use. Honestly, not that many people (not the 'average user's), but a group I feel should be catered towards.
Source: http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/linuxsampler-2.0.0.tar.bz2
Depends on libgig

Related pieces of software are:
gigedit, an editor for one of the formats supported by LinuxSampler
QSampler, a QT based, partially featured front-end to LinuxSampler, or JSampler, a Java based, fully featured front-end to LinuxSampler.

JoshStrobl moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

Upon further investigation, this is proving harder to package than I had anticipated. linuxsampler fails to find files that libgig clearly provides, gigedit also fails to compile. I might keep having a fiddle, but I'm out of my depth. Unless someone else has a passion for it, this might prove to be more of a burden than a blessing to have packaged.

This has sat in accepted for inclusion for over a year now. Clearly, there is a lack of demand for the inclusion of this software, nobody has stepped up to provide a patch, maintain it, and properly integrate it. Closing as a result. Feel free to reopen but only when someone offers a patch via our proper patch submission methods and volunteers to be maintainer.
