Lisalo - Linux Sampler Loader - is a command line program that loads entire directories of sample files, a single .sfz file or takes instructions from a meta .lsl file with relative paths to samples. Now you can quickly and easily load sampled instruments without even starting a GUI.
This is release 1.5, grab it here, no installation required

[New Feature: Automatic Audio Busses]
After loading hundreds of .sfz files in Linuxsampler I did not even attempt to manually connect them in QJackCtl but instead modify Lisalo to help me.
If you use an .lsl file to load you'll get bus channels for each section (the same that create the midi-in ports, you already have them, no new syntax, no extra typing).
Example .lsl file
will create the following Jack audio output ports as device name "Stringduo":
- One pair master sum, left and right. Autoconnected to system in (or whatever you gave as commandline argument)
- 2 bus pairs (new), unconnect. "Violin" and "Viola". You want to connect these to your recording device.
- 6 unconnected pairs, one for each instrument (that would be 12 channels already you would have to connect manually in QJackCtl). These are only for very detailed tasks.
Final note: You don't want to know how much work it is to create even this small example in QSampler or Fantasia.
