G-Player 1.2.4 is now available – Play Gigastudio Samples on Mac and Windows
Miami Beach, Fla. (MuseWire) – Safta Consulting has announced the latest update to their Gigastudio/Gigasampler sound file player, G-Player 1.2.4, is now available. For those not familiar with the product, G-Player was created to emulate the Gigastudio sound as close as possible. According to the company, “When other samplers can only improve their Gigastudio file import, we work directly on the audio engine until we get a perfect result. For example, G-Player is the only sampler that emulates the 3 velocity curves of Gigastudio (linear, non-linear and special).” You may know the publisher as the developer of the popular CDXtract.
This new version includes the following improvements and corrections:
– New stack editor
– 2 new stack modes: Velocity and Random
– Stack key switch can be placed on the right side of the instruments
– Each instrument in a stack can be transposed
– Fixed a bug that prevented G-Player to load many giga files on Windows
– The sample pre-loading can be set down to 0.2 second for super fast loading
– Good news, the Mac 64 bit version is almost finished.
– We also have a beta version that runs on the MUSE Receptor.

For new users, the product is $149. It loads most Gig files perfectly, however will not open fully encrypted files like some BFD libraries, or Larry Seyer drums (or other files requiring iLok key or dongle). It does not require GSIF drivers!
I have been testing this product on my new Mac 8-core machine (purchased copy), as a long-time Gigastudio™ user, and will post a review on MusicIndustryNewswire.com soon.
