Yes, LS is designed to support different kinds of sampler engines. We just
concentrated on the Gig format, as we thought it to offer the most promising
instrument libraries. As we meanwhile support this format quite well, we hope
to start implementing other sampler engines (that is other formats) very
soon. Personally I'm especially keen to add support for Akai and a complete
new and free sampler format. Which brings me to another point:

Shouldn't we better design a new, free sampler format instead of using
proprietary formats for free instruments? Because it will take much longer to
develop (or adjust existing) instrument loaders & editors to be fully
compliant with proprietary formats (due to missing specs) than developing
editors for a free, well defined new format. And think about all the
drawbacks of exiting, proprietary formats. E.g. I would appreciate also to be
able to edit an instrument on the console in case (tar - XML).

I wonder if the Gigasampler format fully fits into the Swami environment.
Wouldn't it mean quite a (design) change in libinstpatch & Swami to be able
to cover the whole Gigasampler format (up to GSt 3.0) with write support?

Well, do you have GSt editor? We could provide some documentation about the
Gigasampler format if somebody's really interested. Once you know the
possiblities of the format, I guess you won't have much problems to get into
any instrument editor that supports the Gig format. But learning to produce
*good* patches might still take you some time.

As libgig already supports (reading) the Gigasampler format up to GSt 3.0
quite well and libgig is not too big, we could also add write support to
libgig without too much work. But then still somebody would have to write an
instrument editor on top of libgig.
And at the end I still doubt if it's worth the effort and if it wouldn't be
better to build on a free, well designed sampler format.

We could offer quite some GB for patches and we have a large bandwith. But on
the long term I agree we might have to use a distributed solution like
bittorent.
