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 and Windows for production use and live sets.
Giada is in a constant stage of development and may lack of some functionalities which could make it hard to use. Please see the changelog file inside the package to understand the direction of development. Giada is obviously full of bugs, too. So please join our forum and submit any malfunction or suggestion.
Go to the Download area, grab the package for your operating system, unzip/untar it. Now double-click on the program icon to start Giada. No installation or setup needed.
If you are on Linux and you have installed Giada through your package manager, you should find a shortcut in your main menu.
Giada saves its configuration inside a file called giada.conf, generated somewhere in your filesystem:
If you accidentally delete or alter it, the default setup will be used. This file is restored the next time you quit the program.
