My main problems with LinuxSampler were the difficulty of configuration as already described, and it didn't fully support some sfz opcodes that I wanted to use. Specifically, the dynamic cross-fade feature of Virtual Playing Orchestra didn't work.

At one point I was thinking about making a nicer plugin based on LinuxSampler, but the whole "this is GPL oh yeah actually it's not GPL" thing was kind of weird, I wasn't sure if I could use a GPL framework and a not-quite-GPL library together.

Ok, thanks, valid criticism.

What's the status of this feature in Sfizz, has the smoothing issue been solved?

I don't think that there has been any change since the last time you talked to the developers about it, but it was already good enough for me. Hit them up on their Discord channel again, maybe there is still some improvement still to be made.

Can you share some audio examples? I really haven't been able to create anything that sounds usable, but since I'm the only one complaining about it I think it's something I'm doing.

I am too stupid to build a working lv2.

Since I found no build instructions I used:

git clone --recursive https://github.com/sfztools/sfizz.git
cd sfizz/src
ccmake .. (got some errors=
cmake .
make

I got an lv2 but it caused an endless loop in Carla when loading it.

Hi Guys

I would like to use sfizz with Tracktion Waveform 11 under Linux.
But Waveform does not support lv2.
I don't know if vst3 is supposed to be working with Waveform, but the sfizz vst3 does not load.
Can sfizz be compiled as vst2?
What other options do is have?

Thank you very much

Hi,

Waveform11 has build-in sampler that supports SFZ format. And yes, it doesn't support lv2 and vst3 (yet).
I'll take a look, maybe sfizz can be wrapped with https://github.com/x42/lv2vst
EDIT: No, it can't be wrapped

OK, found it in Waveform. Thank you.

I don't know anything about Juce. Is there a License problem for building a vst2?

Anyway, i can further explore Waveform ;-)

You could use dpf and vestige.h and there shouldn't be any licensing issues with steinberg to worry about.
