Ultra-lightweight internal design
Giada is designed to be a fast and reliable audio tool, focused on productivity. 100% exotic dependencies free. Based on few external libraries, you can save it into a floppy disk.
The audio stuff runs in a separate process, while the interface is at your command. In this way the music never stops, even during the heaviest processing.
32 bit floating point audio engine
All samples are internally converted and managed to provide hi-definition audio mixing, with ALSA, JACK, CoreAudio, ASIO and DirectSound full support.
Unlimited number of audio channels controlled via computer keyboard
Manage loops and events, play samples, mute and stop channels: everything through your computer's keyboard.
Different playback modes and combinations
Launch single-shot samples with a key press; compose your song with layered loops, actions or takes from the external world; use Giada as a live drum machine or yet process live any input and redirect it to the speakers.
Bpm and beat sync with sample-accurate loop engine
Giada can run for hours without losing a bpm, thanks to its sample-based calculations.
Built-in wave editor
Cut, trim, silence, normalize and pitch your sample via the minimal yet very tasty integrated editor.
VST and VSTi plugin support
A feature which transforms Giada into a native VST host, also suitable for live processing. Plugin support for Linux, Windows and OSX, of course.
Live sampler from external inputs
Record samples from the real world with automatic channel selection and input delay compensation.
Align the samples on exact fractions of beats to gain an ultra-precise live performance.
Action recorder + action editor
Record live your performance or craft it carefully via the action editor, possibly building the structure of the song from scratch.
All your sounds and actions can be safely stored into small and compact open source files.
Support for all major uncompressed file formats
Giada handles any uncompressed audio format, such as .wav, .aiff and many others.
