  1. You might want to try the Salamander with the samples converted to flac (supportedy by Linuxsampler since early 2013). The samples will be about 40% the size of wav samples, and hence reduce demand on disk I/O. However, flac samples will have to be converted back to wav (I suppose) to play in linuxsampler, requiring some CPU. For a regular PC I think flac samples are superior – the reduced I/O requirements allow for fast loading of instruments and no detectable effect on playability. Of course, using 16 bit samples should be faster than 24 bit and also help improve the polyphony.

  1. Hello Edward, thanks for the tip, I didn’t think about converting the samples to FLAC. I’ll give it a spin but doesn’t that also require changing the sample mappings?
