I am pleased to announce the release of Composite 0.006.2. This is a
bug-fix release.

ABOUT
-----

Composite is (or, will be) a software application/system for
real-time, in-performance sequencing, sampling, and looping.
Currently the main feature is the LV2 Sampler that supports Hydrogen
drumkits.

CHANGES
-------

* LV2 Sampler: Fix logic error with uri-map by passing
the Event URI as the `map` parameter. This also works
around crashes in slv2 and zynjacku (which is a bug on
their part).

STATUS
------

Composite is a project with a large vision. Here is the status of the
different components:

composite-gui: Alpha (i.e. "a broken version of Hydrogen")
composite_sampler (LV2): production/stable, no GUI
libTritium: Not a public API, yet.

HOW TO USE THE PLUGIN
---------------------

To use the plugin, you need the following:

* A program (host) that loads LV2 plugins.

* A MIDI controller.

* An audio output device. :-)

The following LV2 hosts are known to work with this plugin:

Ingen http://drobilla.net/blog/software/ingen/
ardour3 (alpha) http://ardour.org/
lv2_jack_host http://drobilla.net/software/slv2/
zynjacku http://home.gna.org/zynjacku/

If you don't have a hardware MIDI controller, I suggest using
jack-keyboard (http://jack-keyboard.sourceforge.net/).

The first time you run the sampler, it will create a file
~/.composite/data/presets/default.xml, which will set up presets on
Bank 0 for the two default drum kits (GMkit and TR808EmulationKit).
Sending MIDI PC 0 and PC 1 will switch between the two kits. See
composite_sampler(1) for more information on setting up presets.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
---------------

With this release, I would especially like to thank:

Alessio Treglia - For quickly packaging 0.006.1 and getting
it into Debian sid.

Benoit Delcour - For quickly testing and reporting this
issue with the LV2 Sampler.

Peace,
Gabriel M. Beddingfield
