How does it work? Just pick up your sample, drop it in any channel and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler or yet as an effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows for production use and live sets.

lots of useful tools

Tweak your sounds with the live sampler from external sources, the live quantizer, a built-in wave editor, the action recorder and the action editor.

vst plugin support

An experimental feature which transforms Giada into a native VST host. Plugin support for Linux, Windows and OS X, of course.

lightweight and powerful

32 bit floating point audio engine, sample-accurate looping system, multithread support. 100% exotic dependencies free.

100% open-source GPL

Giada is constantly under development, free for use and distribution: you can use it without any limitations. Help us to improve it more!
