Guitarists, keyboard players, vocalists, drummers, and wind players — build and control your live music rig with Gig Performer™ to transform and elevate your live performing experience by gaining complete control over the sound of your instrument or voice. Our innovative approach and focus on usability are paired with an intuitive rack design, called a Rackspace, which transforms your plugins into the most powerful, yet user-friendly live music software system. And our impressive list of cutting-edge features allows you to control multiple instruments, layer sounds, and employ authentic effects… easily, and with little power usage.
NEW IN GIG PERFORMER 4
Share your most-used effects globally and use them from all your rack spaces. Keep your looper or backing tracks running while you change other sounds on the fly. The Global Rackspace can pass audio in both directions. Preprocess all incoming audio before adding local effects. Create instruments that are always available.
ZOOMABLE WIRING VIEW
Gig Performer’s new wiring view lets you lay out your plugins neatly regardless of the size of your screen. Use a large virtual view, zoom in or out and scoll horizontally or vertically to position your plugins wherever you need them without squashing them together.
Create keyboard velocity curves and widget scaling curves. Choose from predefined shapes or draw your own. Copy them or save them for later reuse.
MIDI FILE PLAYER
Load up to 128 standard MIDI files into the MIDI File Player Plugin. Enable or mute individual tracks. Route different tracks to different plugins for the best possible sound. Use Tap Tempo to control playback speed or let the song control Gig Performer’s global BPM.
FAVORITES AND PRESETS
Select multiple interconnected plugins and save them as a named favorite for easy reuse. Favorites automatically appear in plugin insertion menus or you can simply drop them into Gig Performer from a folder. Saved plugin presets also appear in popup menus and selecting a preset will automatically insert the required plugin.
PROBABILISTIC SOUND DESIGNER
Create completely new sounds or tweak existing ones using controlled randomization of selected parameters of any plugin.
IMPROVED IN GIG PERFORMER 4
Gig Performer 4 adds many new widgets to help you make your front panels even more attractive. New additions include drum pads, a sustain pedal, plastic knobs, colored sliders and a new malleable shape.
Improved widget scaling, arbitrary panel colors, and transparency make it easier to design your front panels. Replace widgets with other related widgets using drag and drop. More widget customizations and user-definable widget value reset.
UNDO WIDGET MOVEMENTS
One of the most requested features, it is now easy to undo widget movements and positioning.
MIDI MESSAGE HELPER
A new intelligent dialog makes it easy to edit or change previously learned MIDI messages. Easily define multiple MIDI messages to be sent out through MIDI Out blocks.
ADJUST CHANNEL COUNT PER PLUGIN
Restrict the number of audio ports displayed on each plugin independently
INPUT MUTING AND OUTPUT FADING
Control the input muting time and output fade time independently
FASTER PLUGIN FINDER
Find the plugin you need using multiple partial search strings
TOUCH FRIENDLY INPUT
A new large keypad makes it easier to enter values, complete with immediate validation
NEW TUNER DISPLAY
A new tuner view, faster and more accurate, with the ability to change the A reference tuning frequency
GP SCRIPT ENHANCEMENTS
Numerous language additions and enhanced callbacks. Over one hundred new system functions. New global GigScript and Scriptlet Plugins.
Scriptlets are plugins created with GP Script. They are useful for creating more sophisticated MIDI processing tools.
Gigfile templates, System Actions Plugin, MIDI Channel Constrainer Plugin, MIDI In Note Follow, Double-click widget reset, faster start up time, prettier GUI, enhanced Tap Tempo, ..,,,
SONGS AND SETLISTS
Songs let you reuse your rack spaces. For example, a single Rackspace containing an acoustic piano sound can be reused to cover 10 songs needing piano. Reusing rackspaces greatly reduces load times and memory needs. Guitarists will love that song parts can be accessed directly using a MIDI pedal controller, as well as from a control surface or Gig Performer’s main window.
Gig Performer’s Predictive Loading™ feature, which slims resource demands by loading only the next few rackspaces that will be needed, can now be applied at the song level. All parts of a song are loaded into memory when the song is selected for glitchless, instant switching. At the same time, Predictive Loading limits CPU and memory requirements.
BI-DIRECTIONAL MIDI CONTROL AND SYSEX SUPPORT
Control surface support has been strengthened with the addition of bidirectional MIDI control of widgets on Gig Performer rack panels, and the program now allows programming and transmitting sysex (MIDI System Exclusive) messages, commonly used with hardware synthesizers.
LOW CPU USAGE
We’ve spent countless hours making sure that Gig Performer uses as few CPU cycles as possible.
CROSS PLATFORM (VST, VST3, AU)
Works on OS X and Windows devices. Your GIG files can be opened on both platforms. Supports VST, VST3 and AU plugins
BUILT-IN AUDIO/MIDI RECORDER
Record all incoming audio inputs easily for later post-processing in a DAW. Saved wave files are automatically timestamped – perfect for touring bands. All incoming MIDI data can be saved to a Standard MIDI File, complete with tempo changes.
Switch between your rack spaces – INSTANTLY and GLITCH FREE. Easily create variations of your rackspace. Switch between variations seamlessly – even while holding notes.
MIDI & OSC Support
Use your existing MIDI and OSC devices and apps. Map any control to any controllable parameter.
Our Rig Manager allows you to move between your home and studio setup with a single click
Synchronize Gig Performer’s tempo with applications running on other connected computers or tablets.
CHORD PRO SUPPORT
Gig Performer 3 adds support for the Chord Pro lead sheet format. This allows Chord Pro documents to be created, edited, and linked to songs in a setlist so a chords-and-lyrics chart can be opened when a song is selected
Forget about channel strips, buses, auxes, and sends. Just route audio from one plugin to another by connecting them together with wires. Functionality like inserts sends and side-chaining become trivial.
A powerful, proprietary scripting language allows you to customize your rig’s behavior to the max.
ADVANCED MIDI FUNCTIONS
Associate specific MIDI devices with particular plugins easily and visually. Use transpose, channel mapping, MIDI out settings and more…
Built-in 4, 8, and 16 channel mixer/router
SOUND DESIGN MADE EASY
No more confusing busses sends auxes, or inserts used by traditional channel-strip approaches. Using the front and back panel views, simply connect plugins to each other any way you want, then custom-design Panels to control each Rackspace. You can then design a number of Variations, which allow multiple sets of settings for a single Rackspace… and switch INSTANTLY between them.
For instance, if you create a Rackspace consisting of an electric piano and some effects (phase, reverb, tremolo) then you can switch instantly from fast deep tremolo, to slow mellow tremolo plus reverb, and so on, even while still holding notes. Plus, you can customize your Panels using a variety of available widgets (knobs, switches, levers, LEDs), and colored face plates.
Gig Performer™ makes the most of your plugins whether you’re using it to control the effects processing of your instrument, your voice, or both simultaneously. You can also use Gig Performer™ with your existing environment, by training it to recognize the controls on your keyboards, OSC apps, MIDI expression pedals and control surfaces, and then use them to control plugin parameters. Of course, you’ll also enjoy expected features such as layering and splitting operations, and individual transposition.
