Today we released a new version of Giada, codename Book of Shadows: a book containing religious texts and instructions for magical rituals found within the Neopagan religion of Wicca. As outlined in the 0.14 branch, the saga of Sample Editor's rewrite continues. Some notable changes:
As always the full changelog is available here. A warm kiss to all our supporters.
Let's roll out the red carpet for the new version of Giada, number 0.14.0 codename DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET, inspired by the Chrome/Chromium error flag raised when your Internet connection is dead.
The light at the end of the 1.0 tunnel still shines far away. However, starting from the current branch 0.14 we want to pave the road for a kick-ass live audio production tool, easy, reliable and fun to use. So, enjoy some delicious features from the current release:
The full changelog is available here. A warm kiss to all supporters, bug reporters and hackers.
Today we shipped a new version of Giada codename "Gimbal Lock", a common glitch that occurs when rotating an object in a 3-dimensional space.
The release offers an improved MIDI editing experience, especially on the Piano Roll side. We also removed the ability to load deprecated MIDI maps files (i.e. those still based on .ini files) and expanded the unit test collection.
As always, a warm "thank you" to all the contributors. The full changelog is available here. Enjoy the novelties of Giada 0.13.4 and remember: beware of gimbal locks!
A new version of Giada, 0.13.3 codename chrysopoeia is ready for your hardware! In alchemy, the term chrysopoeia (Greek: χρυσοποιία) means transmutation into gold (from the Greek χρυσός khrusos, "gold," and ποιεῖν poiēin, "to make"). It is symbolically used to indicate the creation of the philosopher's stone and the completion of the Great Work.
The new release features a deep rework of Jack implementation, which provides BPM and Rewind synchronization. We have also fixed some annoying bugs like GitHub issue #99, improved the 'free channel' function and cleaned up the codebase even further.
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.
