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 1.2, grab it here, no installation required (but you can symlink it to /usr/bin if you want)
git clone git://github.com/nilsgey/Lisalo.git
lsl mode (see example.lsl)
-Choose an instrument index when loading gig or sf2 samples
-Load a directory with waves and oggs as one instrument.
-Choose a name for your JACK port
commandline mode (see -h or cat README)
-option to specify a name for your JACK port.
-directly load a single sfz file instead of a whole directory or a meta lsl file (auto detection by file extension)
-this sfz file can be a temp file created by Lisalos sidekick:
[New Tool - Sfz Generator]
Creates temporary sfz files. Point to a directory of wave or ogg files and you'll get the filename of an .sfz file in /tmp as return value.
In case you want to use this with Lisalo use the following syntax:
lisalo "$(lisalosfzgenerator.py /path/to/wavedir)"
This has several optional options such as: Start mapping from a key number (default 60 - middle c), only map the white keys, load sample dir recursively (don't point at your /home/samples or at an Ardour project dir!)
Python3 (Developed and tested under 3.2.2)
Linuxsampler (no GUI required)
