If you own the copyright on something, you can license it how
you like - the fact that older versions have been licensed under
GPL is irrelevant.
If the program is derived from GPL'd code whose copyright is
owned by someone else, who's unwilling to allow re-licensing,
then what you say is correct, but I think Linux Sampler was
written from scratch.
There's nothing to stop someone taking the last GPL'd version
of Linux Sampler and forking a GPL version from there, of course,
except that the mysterious "more going on" alluded to by
Paul Davis might also start to happen to the forkers..?
