About Giglad

Giglad will turn your PC or MAC into an arranger keyboard, allowing you to play your music live, using a midi keyboard controller. Create your own unique styles such as 8 Beat, 16 Beat, Slow Rock, Waltz, Tango, Samba, etc and use them for live or private performances. Create your songs by instructing the chords sequence and let our software be your accompanimentor, while you are using your hands to play the solo instrument.

Virtual Instrument Support

Virtual Instruments

Both the styles (Left Hand) and the solo playing (Right hand) are using virtual instruments to produce the audio and as such, the sound gets to be high quality. VST, VST3 and Audio Units synth plug-ins and effects are supported as well as Soundfonts.

Play Yamaha Styles

Yamaha Styles

Giglad can read and play Yamaha SFF2 and SFF3 styles. The default soundfont which is used for the style's instruments can change and each of the style's track can even be replaced with your own plug-ins.

Midi-YAML-JSON

DAW's Integration

Giglad can send its master audio and/or the midi data of the melody and style tracks to any application which supports VST3 hosting via an in house implemented plug-in called glecho (Windows Only).

Midi Keyboard Controller

Midi Driven

Multiple Midi Keyboard Controllers can be used not only for the chords and the melody playing but also to drive the software itself. The most critical actions such as playing/stop, switching style, applying sounds, changing tempo and much more, can all be instructed by the Midi Controller without using the PC keyboard and mouse at all while playing live.

Enhanced Midi Editor

Enhanced Midi Editor

The different sections of the styles, along with the instruments which consists them, can effortlessly be created using the midi editor which has specifically been designed for this purpose.

Midi-YAML-JSON

Standard Files Format

The styles are saved in *.mid format based on the MIDI protocol, the songs are saved in *.yaml which is a well known human-readable data-serialization language and both the presets and the programs are saved in JSON. This allows the exchange of all the files that giglad is using with different software products.

Heads Up

Hardware

A Midi Keyboard Controller is required in order to play live. For low latency, an ASIO/ Core Audio compatible sound card is also advised to be included in your system. You should be aware that the audio processing, in every software, is very demanding in terms of resources. Thus, the better the system in which giglad will be installed, the better the performance will be.

Virtual Instruments

Due to licensing reasons, giglad is distributed without any virtual instruments. The user needs to take care of creating his own library of sounds which will be used in his styles and his solo playing. There are awesome virtual instruments on the internet which can be downloaded for free and others which must be purchased by the corresponding vendor.

Styles

Giglad is distributed without any build-in styles but provides all the necessary tools for the user to create his own unique styles as easy and fast as possible. Additionally, giglad can read and play Yamaha SFF2 and SFF3 styles and these styles can be modified via the enhanced midi editor. Eventually, each user of giglad has a unique style/sound result.

Documentation

The documentation describes in detail what giglad can do and what giglad cannot do. It is advised to have a quick read on it before diving straight into the software. Giglad has unique features which would be impossible to guess without reading the documentation.
