Giada is a free, minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs, live performers and electronic musicians. How does it work? Just pick up your channel, fill it with samples or MIDI events and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler or yet as a plugin/effect host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows for production use and live sets.
Carefully crafted by the almighty Monocasual Laboratories, Giada provides several workflows that make it a container of multiple devices. A sample player, where sounds and beats are triggered on the fly; a traditional loop machine, powered by multiple channels; a song composer, thanks to the action-oriented approach and the action editor; a live sampler or yet a plugin processor/host, with VST support and MIDI I/O routing.
Giada is actively developed on GitHub where many friends/collaborators push changes and suggest ideas, as well as on the official forum (for non-techies). It's also available in the main Linux distributions' repositories like Debian, Ubuntu, Arch Linux and many more. Free for use and distribution under the GPL v3 license. 100% palm oil and gluten free.
