Build and control your live music rig with Gig Performer™ to transform and elevate your live performing experience by gaining complete control over the sound of your instrument or voice. Our innovative approach and focus on usability is paired with an intuitive rack design, called a Rackspace, which transforms your plugins into the most powerful, yet user-friendly live music software system. And our impressive list of cutting edge features table you to control multiple instruments, layer sounds and employ authentic effects… easily, and with little power usage.
No more confusing busses, sends, auxes or inserts used by traditional channel-strip approaches. Using the front and back panel views, simply connect plugins to each other any way you want, then custom-design Panels to control each Rackspace. You can then design a number of Variations, which allow multiple sets of settings for a single Rackspace… and switch INSTANTLY between them.
For instance, if you create a Rackspace consisting of an electric piano and some effects (phase, reverb, tremolo) then you can switch instantly from fast deep tremolo, to slow mellow tremolo plus reverb, and so on, even while still holding notes. Plus, you can customize your Panels using a variety of available widgets (knobs, switches, levers, LEDs), and colored face plates.
Gig Performer™ runs on both OSX and MS Windows so you can enjoy its benefits on whichever platform you are most familiar. You’ll also enjoy full OSC support. You can use touch surfaces such as Lemur or TouchOSC to control Gig Performer™, as well as applications such as Max for even more sophisticated control.
Gig Performer™ supports VST formats on both OSX and MS Windows, as well as the AU format on OSX.
Gig Performer™ makes the most of your plugins whether you’re using it to control the effects processing of your instrument, your voice, or both simultaneously. You can also use Gig Performer™ with your existing environment, by training it to recognize the controls on your keyboards, OSC apps, MIDI expression pedals and control surfaces, and then use them to control plugin parameters. Of course, you’ll also enjoy expected features such as layering and splitting operations, and individual transposition.

Say goodbye to the confusing busses, sends and inserts of traditional channel-strip approaches. Simply connect plugins to each other any way you want.
Panels make it easy to group and share common collections of controls tied to your physical devices and to plugin parameters in individual rackspaces.
Thank you guys for creating a "Musician's Tool" instead of another Engineering Tool
Very impressed with Gig Performer. It is so intuitive that probably it doesn't need a manual
Gig Performer has liberated my best audio plug-ins from the confines of the studio and finally made it practical to bring multiple instances of them to the performance stage. Simultaneous MIDI processing makes a versatile system. I now have one very compact live setup!
Gig Performer is like a breath of fresh air for laptop performers. Stable, efficient and without all the extra unnecessary features that increase cpu and distract from a smooth playing experience. It’s a lean, mean performing machine and will find a home with many players looking to augment, or completely replace their hardware rigs. P.S. I just made a gig with 50 instances of Uhe Diva in it. Resting cpu = 2%. wow!
Finally, a plugin host that truly addresses the needs of live performers
Gig Performer is a game changer for me. Not only can I create any combination of sounds with this but also perform them live with seamless switching. The only limitation with Gig Performer is your imagination.
Gig Performer is an amazing tool for my unconventional set up. Allowing me to access the full power of my laptops into my system. It is quickly becoming an incredible asset to my live shows.
I was also impressed that it handled midi fx, I wasn't expecting that 🙂
