Hi Stefano,

According to the website, that feature is in the development version.

If someone from the linuxsampler project has that information then it 
would good to disseminate it - maybe as a 'quicktoot'. I personally 
have some good microphones, and record plenty of real instruments 
that could provide samples.

I'm afraid linuxaudio.org does not currently own any hardware which it 
could donate, but you could try asking member projects. AGNULA Libre 
Music hosts complete works, but I don't think they are doing samples 
as yet.

If you're talking about the really large samples, I think they might 
exceed disc space and bandwidth limitations quite quickly on any 
hosted machine. Perhaps a peer-to-peer infrastructure based around 
BitTorrent would work.
