Few days ago we released Giada 0.19.0, codename “Werewolf“. Inspired by the mythological human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf, Giada 0.19.0 introduces the new "One-shot Pause" channel mode: a new way of playing sample channels where the sample can be put on pause. More information available in the official documentation, "Channels and Samples" chapter.
In addition to such delicious new feature, Giada 0.19.0 features important internal refactorings, bug fixes and minor plug-in UI's improvements. For more information please take a look at the full changelog, available in the download area. Auuu 🐺
Giada 0.18.2 “Griffin“ is ready for your machine! This new version contains a lot of user-interface improvements and usability fixes. More specifically:
Stereo In/Out audio meters;
A completely overhauled Action Editor — the tool has been thoroughly redesigned in order to improve its ease of use. The Action Editor now also shows the running play head when the song is playing.
Giada 0.18.2 also fixes several MIDI bugs such as MIDI events being sent also when the channel was muted: please take a look at the full changelog in the download area for the complete list. As always a warm kiss goes to all the contributors who helped with this release. Have fun ❤️
Few days ago we released Giada 0.18.1 codename “Kelpie“, named after the shape-shifting spirit inhabiting lakes in Scottish folklore. Giada 0.18.1 features a new audio resampling architecture that allows you to change the resampling quality of the live audio stream — prior to this change the resampling quality setting was used only for converting audio files when a project was initially loaded.
Giada 0.18.1 also includes many CMake fixes on Linux, hardened runtime on macOS release, additional fixes for JACK Transport (Linux) and much more. The full changelog is available in the download area. Have fun with Giada 0.18.1 and stay safe!
