my first instrument :)

this is my first instrument - OT P1ANO, a free piano module vst & standalone. Built using public domain samples and from what i have learned so far with HISE,
the demo videos are at this link below and download link is in video description.
*now includes the linux plugin, thanks to @d-healey for compiling it!
download link on MEGA:
Looks and sounds great! Do you have a link to the source so I can built the plugin on my OS?
@d-healey thanx David, thrilled you like it!
by source you mean the project folder with all the stuff on it, right?
would be fantastic to have a Linux version of the plugin aswell.
I gues i can upload the project on github? I'm learning to use it and it's desktop app.
@musictop Yeah a github link would be great. No need to upload the binaries folder though.

@musictop Nice instrument here! Congrats!
@ustk thank you
@d-healey ok, i'll try and upload it now
@d-healey need to get a hang of github and understand it first.
in the mean time i've uploaded the source here:
@d-healey ah, just what i needed, thanks a lot David.

@musictop Nice instrument, Congratulations!
@ulrik thanx a lot.
Just about to build this. I loaded up the project and I noticed all the samplers are bypassed, then I realised they are switched on using controls on the UI. This is not the way I'd recommend allowing users to toggle samplers on/off while other sounds are playing.
It can cause some audio glitches or hanging notes (although probably not going to happen with this instrument). A better method is to use MIDI muters.
I'm going to build it now and I'll let you know if all goes well
Built it and it plays beautifully. The CPU usage is a little higher than I would like, I'm not using the IPP so once I disabled the reverb that brought down the CPU a bit. I think most of the CPU usage though comes from the samplers, I don't think there is much that could be done without reworking the samples into fewer samplers but that would require more work than it's worth. Do you mind if I make a video about this plugin?
@d-healey I wouldn't mind a bit... thanks for all the input. I also didn't like to bypass the samplers in such way, but did not know about MIDI muters :).
I plan to update this anyway and your input is highly valuable and helpful.
I'm also building two other instruments and will post them soon, got some more work on them to bring them in a kind of beta state

@musictop I made a video a couple of months ago about articulation switching, including the use of MIDI muters. It's currently only available to my Patreon community but will be available on YouTube sometime next year.
@d-healey would you mind sending me the compiled linux plugin so i can add it to the download package?
@musictop Yeah here it is - https://www.dropbox.com/s/3oby964qndp2eni/OT P1ANO.so?dl=0
This was made on Linux Mint 19.1 so it might not run on earlier versions or Ubuntu below 18.04
@d-healey thank you very much. Very kind of you!
At first thank you guys!
- Linux binary crashes on AMD CPU with illegal instruction, I guess it compiled with -march=native on some Intel CPU.
- I've compiled plugin from sources (it works even with IPP), and see that all labels are empty (Only LIBRARY button is labeled). Could you check the source archive which you published above please?
PS It looks like a bug. While in otp1ano_betaDesktop.xml there correct definitions:
<Component type="ScriptLabel" id="COMP label" x="470" y="229" width="60"
height="20" fontName="Calibri" text="COMPRESSION" textColour="4287072135"
itemColour2="1118481" editable="0" fontSize="10" fontStyle="Bold"/>
in HISE all label just are *
