Swami is an instrument patch file editor using SoundFont files that allows you to create and distribute instruments from audio samples used for composing music. It uses FluidSynth, a software synthesizer, which has real time effect control, support for modulators, and routable audio via JACK. This project supersedes the Smurf SoundFont Editor, and is an entire object-oriented rewrite of it. The supporting libraries are GUI-independant and can be used in your own programs for doing SoundFont manipulation.

Release Notes: This version features an update to GTK+ 2, 24-bit SoundFont support, a GObject oriented API for use in other applications, Loop Finder and FFTune plugins for semi-automated looping and sample tuning, an overlapping loop point viewer to help with creating seamless loops, and many other features and enhancements.
Release Notes: Sample exporting has been added. Loop and instrument information is imported and exported when using AIFF sample files and libaudiofile. The message about "Not distributing SoundFont files" has been removed, as it was never intended to remain there. There are some bugfixes.
Release Notes: This is the first packaged preview release of the Swami development branch after almost 2 years of development. New features include support for CRAM (Compress hybRid Audio Media, an instrument compression format), drag and drop GUI components for views, the ability to split views by right clicking on view separators, and a model-view-controller control network (change a parameter and all views update themselves).
Release Notes: Bugfixes were made for modulators, "loop till release" instruments, and portability. A few new features were added, such as multiple selection of modulators for deletion and virtual keyboard velocity control. The gettext system for international language support was re-enabled.
Release Notes: A few build problems have been fixed, including the popt library not being linked for builds without Gnome support, and the use of G_INLINE_FUNC has been removed.
