I'm not familiar with the internals of the gigasampler format, but I'm 
guessing that it must be possible to make these files from WAVs 
provided by One Shot Samples. From that website I can see that the 
maximum sample size allowed appears to be 512kb, whereas gigasampler 
files can be very large - but they could be a start.

If you would like to help out with this, why not email the Linux 
Sampler and One Shot Samples projects and suggest that they both 
become members of linuxaudio.org? It doesn't cost them anything. (A 
couple of Linux Sampler developers also work on other projects which 
are existing members).

I also note the Linux Sampler project has asked for suggestions 
regarding sample sources:


One Shot Samples seems like an obvious link to put there, particularly 
since the founder of the site is now a Linux user, and the samples 
appear to be in the public domain.
