this is derselbst – current maintainer of fluidsynth. Together with JJC we’re helping out the SWAMI project. We started by splitting up swami and libinstpatch into separate repositories, which can now be found at Github:
Efforts on fixing build issues esp. on Windows are currently in progress.
Joël Krähemann created a linuxfromscratch.org based live DVD image for ags (Advanced GTK+ Sequencer) which contains Swami. For more information visit his blog post here.
Project Swami now has a new website! The updated look and content is representative of the new found interest that I have in further developing this great software. My purchase of a new MIDI controller keyboard sparked a desire to add features to improve MIDI control and live composition in Swami. I’m also looking forward to developing additional new features, such as instrument library browsing support, virtual instrument files, session effect modulators as well as improving the Python binding and fixing outstanding bugs. A new release of Swami is long overdue, to include the changes that have been made in the last couple years. I’m also going to get serious about creating package installers for Mac OS X and Windows platforms. If you want to get involved, post something to the forums, mailing list or make a donation!
