That's something the Linux-Audio world is missing so much... a decent 
sampler. All promising projects are stalled because of their developers 
not having time to continue. LinuxSampler is indeed very good... but you 
can't create your own programs (Kontakt or Halion style)... hopefully 
some developers will resuscitate  Specimen or  other dead project and 
take it to a higher level. Come on guys! :-)
