Resurrecting GIG Support in Carla

I was just thinking how cool would it be to bring back GIGA samples support to the carla plugin host. I think LMMS's GIGA sampler plugin can serve as a base as it is qt based and doesn't have the licensing restrictions like Linuxsampler. https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/tree/stabl ... /GigPlayer

From GigPlayer.cpp

Code: Select all

* A few lines of code taken from LinuxSampler (also GPLv2) where noted:
* Copyright (C) 2003,2004 by Benno Senoner and Christian Schoenebeck
* Copyright (C) 2005-2008 Christian Schoenebeck
* Copyright (C) 2009-2010 Christian Schoenebeck and Grigor Iliev
It is only three small pieces of code indeed, but the copyright notice is already wrong. It is not GPLv2, that is wishful thinking.
I didn't check the other files.

Ugh, LinuxSampler is such a poison. I think we should make a list of projects that took code or link to LinuxSampler so we can avoid them.
