I haven't actually listened to the demo yet, but:

 - Can we convince you of going 48kHz/24bits? That is far more common in audio 
production. Using 44.1kHz in a setup running at 48kHz includes possibly nasty 
artefacts from up-sampling and a loss of precision and frequencies. Down-
sampling is far easier on the quality...
   Maybe its better to make do with one or two layers less. And maybe help to 
fix gigedit. linuxsampler is said to be able to do more then 2GB files.

 - When looking for compression for easier distribution: What about 
distributing a "source" archive that contains the wavpack/flac compressed raw 
samples, the gigedit file and a makefile for creation of the .gig-file?

Have fun,
