Fantastic! I'll have to try compiling it under Linux (ubuntu) to use with eXT2.

Great contribution, George. There's definitely no open source sampler nearly as good as HighLife :), and it may become a very nice project now that people can extend it. And great decision using a BSD license and not one that prevents integration into most commercial applications.

To make sure that I'm getting this right, folks are now allowed to download this source code, and modify it as they please? And I have just read about the DSD license. Do I understand correctly that under its terms such derivative works from this source code may be distributed commercially, as long as the license's conditions are met? Could someone more knowledgeable about this sort of thing give examples of what is and is not ok?

Just spammed all my coder friends of every stripe, aptitude and experience with a link to the discodsp news section and some ascii enthusiasm; I will take a long, hard look at the .sfz code to scratch an itch or two this weekend, but I haven't coded much outside perl and tcl since uni and my major was actually musicology, so I will probably need whatever help I can get. :oops:

Releasing under an OSI approved license was IMO even more generous of you than dropping the price from $99 to $0. Much thanks. :party:
