delfin is a realtime software sampler for Linux. The other day I went to buy a music sampler, that kind of hardware you use to create contemporary music (Hip-hop, Jungle, Techno, ...). Somehow I foundthe price wasn't right. Why spend 3000 DM (that's around 1300$) in an overspecialized machine, when my humble computer should be able to do the
And then a sampler needs lotsa memory, so you got to spend more quids upgrading it. I suppose that I would be better off spending that money upgrading the sound capabilities, RAM and speed of my computer. So I decided to start this project, delfin (that's dauphin in spanish), to make a software sampler.
I realize that the sound quality of delfin and it's actual interface doesn't come near that of a real harware sampler... yet. Anyways I wanted to recall my forgotten and rusty C knowledge (ehem), and who knows, if more people get involved in this project, maybe delfin will become a full-grown, all-mighty, powerful seasinger.
