Hey Batz,

You didn't mention much in regards of what your sampler needs to do? Does it
have to be LinuxSampler?

"Specimen" is a sampler that is quite simple and good for live stuff
(although I'm not sure if it will run headles... ?)

Apart from that, I'm not sure if you a coder, but sample playback is pretty
easy stuff.. I've written one in C++ with an OSC interface... (its *NOT*
tried & tested stable 100% software) but hey, it works here without crashin!
;-)
If your intrested then you're welcome to the source-code, its GPLv3 anyway.

Perhaps you could tells us about the FX too...? Jack-Rack running some
Ladspas? LV2? Or does it need to be built into the sampler?

Cheers, -Harry

PS: For the external controller your talkin about.. Arduino? Or what was
your plan... Curious! :-)

=A0 =A0 =A0 =A0My name is Batz Goodfortune (Yes that really is my name.) I=
'm a noob here but no stranger to linux or audio. Having been working i=
n electronic music for some 40 years or so. However I find myself in someth=
ing of a `situation.' Put simply. I need a sampler.

What happened to all the nice, solid hardware based instruments of the worl=
d?

Anyway, I was rather hoping to have something up and running by Christmas. =
That's obviously not going to happen and if I MUST use software, Prey i=
t be Linux based. Which would hopefully be somewhat less likely to fail me =
in front of an audience.

To that end I have joined this prestigious group of pioneers in order that =
I might do a slight amount of brain picking if I may? Before I start dedica=
ting any hardware to the task. Which won't be as simple as it may at fi=
rst seem. But I'll get to that.

I'm aware of the linux sampler project. I'd like to know how much C=
PU power is bare minimum for 16 MIDI channels and at least 32 voices. Plus =
FX. If it's going to require a dual or better processor and a g'zil=
lion gig of RAM then this is not something I'm going to be able to must=
er any time soon. However if it would run on a tiny VIA processor/mo-bo, th=
en I have a few I could muster. And eventually stick into a 19" rack b=
ox et all.

How easy would this to get running under slackware? Slackware has been my w=
eapon of choice for a long time. But mainly for servers and the likes. I&#3=
9;m at home with slackware but I'm more of a consol person than GUI. KD=
E/X chews lots of grunt on it's own. So I'm kind of expecting the a=
nswer to be no. But it would be convenient if I could get it to work on one=
of these tiny platforms I have.

And sound card VS onboard sound? Would it be remotely possible to tune a sy=
stem to get away with using the on-board sound on one of these Mo-Bos? I th=
ink I have one that even sports S/PDIF. This would be helpful in that it wo=
uld help reduce the physical size of this thing. If not, can we use some ki=
nd of cheap USB sound? I need VERY low latency for live work obviously.

Ideally, I'd like to squeeze the whole thing into a single U 19" r=
ack enclosure. Either with one of these tiny Mo-bos or if I have to, buy a =
second hand lap top and rip the display off it. Some kind of arrangement li=
ke that.

All driven by MIDI with a generic USB MIDI interface.

These are just my thoughts so far. But essentially I need to make some kind=
of turn-key system that's giggable. If anyone has any thoughts on this=
and would allow me to benefit from your experience, I would be most gratef=
ul. Offering my first born in thanks.

being a hardware person, ultimately it would be nice to build a hardware fr=
ont-end at some point. A nice little LCD display on a front panel perhaps. =
But for the moment, I'd be happy with a powerful sampler in a tiny box.=
So if anyone here would be happy to point me in the right direction, I wou=
ld be grateful.

Thanks in advance and thank you for having me in your mail box.

be absolutely icebox.
