WELCOME TO GIG PERFORMER
Take your favorite plug-ins on the road! Gig Performer is the most bulletproof, flexible, easy to use, and CPU friendly plug-in host on the market. Created by brilliant musician-engineers and road-tested on countless gigs, Gig Performer thrives on stage. Whether you’re a keyboard player with a huge virtual piano-synth rig, a guitar player with multiple massive effects racks, or a front of house engineer running sound through an array of compressors and EQs, Gig Performer makes it all happen.

"Finally, a plugin host that truly addresses the needs of live performers"
Trey Gunn (King Crimson, Robert Fripp, David Sylvan, The Trey Gunn Band)

Through a new innovation called Rackspaces, Gig Performer lets you load many dozens of plug-ins simultaneously, with customizable and MIDI-learnable controls. Create multiple Rackspaces and switch between them instantly with zero glitches in the sound! Not only can you set up a different Rackspace for each song in a set list, you can switch between multiple Rackspaces within a song. Thanks to its instant response and glitch-free switching your only limit is your creativity. Gig Performer’s impressive list of cutting edge features allow you to control multiple instruments, layer sounds and employ authentic effects easily, with little power usage, on both Mac and Windows computers.

FEATURES

  • INSTANT SWITCHING: Switch between Rackspaces instantly and with zero glitches!
  • LOW CPU USAGE: The programmers spent countless hours making sure that Gig Performer uses as few CPU cycles as possible.
  • BUILT-IN TUNER: If you need to tune your instrument quickly, Gig Performer's built-in tuner is accurate, large and just a click, tap or push away.
  • MIDI & OSC SUPPORT: Use your existing MIDI and OSC devices and apps. Map any control to any controllable parameter.
  • MIDI CLOCK SYNC: Slave Gig Performer from your external DAW or MIDI device.
  • CROSS PLATFORM: Works on OS X and Windows devices. Your GIG files can be opened on both platforms.
  • ADVANCED MIDI FUNCTIONS: Associate specific MIDI devices with particular plugins easily and visually. Use transpose, channel mapping, MIDI out settings and more.
  • USER FRIENDLY: Gig Performer is user-friendly. You will be able to create complete setups in no time.
  • FLEXIBLE: Connect any plugin to any other plugin in any configuration. Parallel or serial—no AUX busses needed.
  • VARIATION SUPPORT: Easily create variations of your Rackspace. Switch between variations seamlessly— even while holding notes or chords on your keyboard or guitar.

"Gig Performer is a game changer for me. Not only can I create any combination of sounds with this but also perform them live with seamless switching. The only limitation with Gig Performer is your imagination."
Michael Cozzi (Shriekback, Sky Cries Mary)

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 color-coded face plates.

"Gig Performer is an amazing tool for my unconventional set up. Allowing me to access the full power of my laptops into my system. It is quickly becoming an incredible asset to my live shows."
Robert Frazza (Crimson ProjeKCt, Stick Men, Todd Rundgren, Lindsey Webster, U.K., Orleans, Joe Jackson)

COMPATIBILITY
Gig Performer runs on both OSX and MS Windows so you can enjoy its benefits on whichever platform you are most familiar. You’ll also enjoy full OSC support. You can use touch surfaces such as Lemur or TouchOSC to control Gig Performer, as well as applications such as Max for even more sophisticated control. Gig Performer supports VST formats on both OSX and MS Windows, as well as the AU format on OSX.

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 (keyboard zones), and individual transposition.

If you’re serious about your live rig, your live rig needs Gig Performer.

"I haven't encountered a live-oriented host program that combines radical open-endedness with relative ease of use as effectively as Gig Performer does. It's more flexible than MainStage where it counts, given the multiformat support and the no-worries routing free-for-all in the Connections view... But for keyboard players who gig across a variety of bands and styles, Gig Performer's thinking hits a singular sweet spot. We might even dare say it 'thinks different!'" Stephen Fortner, KEYBOARD


"Gig Performer has liberated my best audio plug-ins from the confines of the studio and finally made it practical to bring multiple instances of them to the performance stage. Simultaneous MIDI processing makes a versatile system. I now have one very compact live setup!" Jim Meyer  (http://www.jimmeyer.ca/stick/jimmeyer.html)


"Gig Performer is like a breath of fresh air for laptop performers. Stable, efficient and without all the extra unnecessary features that increase cpu and distract from a smooth playing experience. It’s a lean, mean performing machine and will find a home with many players looking to augment, or completely replace their hardware rigs." Simeon Harris (http://www.simeonharris.co.uk/Simeon_Harris/Home.html)

"You absolutely rock! The external clock sync is now dead on... You made it so easy to hook up everything and dial it in. Plug & Play was never this easy in Logic, MainStage, or Ableton Live. No more application bloat! I just setup what I need to perform live within each Rackspace. I’ve been waiting for something like this to come along for a long, long time! Don’t stop doing what you do!"  Marc


"Very impressed with Gig Performer. It is so intuitive that probably it doesn't need a manual." Chris


"Gig Performer is an amazing tool for my unconventional set up. Allowing me to access the full power of my laptops into my system. It is quickly becoming an incredible asset to my live shows." Robert Frazza (Sound engineer for Crimson ProjeKCt, Stick Men, Todd Rundgren, Lindsey Webster, U.K., Orleans, Joe Jackson)


"In a nutshell: GigPerformer is the best program I bought the last years, highly recommended." Thaddeus Weindl


"I wanted to let you know how much I love Gig Performer… I used it on my show in March. I am using it again Saturday and I have a big show in New Orleans in May. The most interesting part is that I am THINKING differently about my set-up and how things are supposed to be. For us “old dogs”—that’s amazing. However, embracing how plug-ins can be arranged from a functionality standpoint... opens-up an enormous number of non-linear approaches to how devices can be used and organized." Michael Whalen
