Wouldn't it be possible to have an other file type where the samples and plugins and stuff would get embedded into the file? I know it would make the size a lot larger, but it would be great to have a file sharing system where you know that it'll sound the same everywhere without users having to install and put all your samples into specific places (which they usually don't do).

Hi, 

Not sure which algorithm for checsums yet, I'd like to pick something fast. Also I think file size could be enough for VSTs and SF2, as usually there are not so many of same name  identical size. But for samples I think its better to use checksums, as you could have many similar drumkits for example, and there could be conflicts.

Best regards

I like the idea of a checksum, as it will be unique, I wonder what tool windows users will 
have to do this with or could 1 be shipped with LMMS?

anyway heres an example of using sha1sum on linux:-


mikobuntu@mikobuntu-Aspire-5332:~$ echo | sha1sum ~/vst/argotlunar.dll
