Say "Hi" to our new digital friend Bartholomew Davenport! He is the guy who will guide us through the art of audio recording with Giada. In his new tutorial #5 you'll learn how to create a live, loop-based performance with physical instruments and a couple of sample channels. The result: an awesome drone-oriented soundtrack texture built in less than 4 minutes. Must watch.
A new smashing version of Giada is ready for your desktop. Inspired by Konstantīns Raudive, a guy who investigated electronic voice phenomena (EVP), this release provides MIDI learn for plugins parameters. From now on you can let your favorite MIDI hardware control any VST effect or VST instrument: a golden feature for live performing.
In addition we added the ability to toggle hidden files in File Browser, fortified plugin loading, fixed lots of bugs plus the usual overall cleanup. Enjoy!

Yesterday we released a new shining version of Giada, number 0.13.1 codename The Shunned House, inspired by the short horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. This episode brings many exciting features:
MIDI messages to channels/plugins — now you can play and record your favorite VST instruments through a MIDI keyboard/controller;
revamped input dynamics — record actions and sounds is now easier, faster and more intuitive. The new built-in input monitor makes live performances a breeze;
many nasty bugs fixed, e.g. crashes on OS X, missing ASIO and WASAPI on Windows, several glitches during action recording process;
many UI improvements and other under-the-hood tweaks.
A warm hug to all of you who helped with this release.
Today we decided to celebrate the end of Summer with a powerful new release of Giada, codename Understanding Eigenvalues. This version marks the beginning of the 0.13 series, where several amazing features are planned.

Bonus point: we have also upgraded our official forum to the latest version of phpBB. As always, a warm "thank you" to all the contributors who helped with the development of this release.
