Tascam GigaStudio 4 now shipping

Time and Space informed us that GigaStudio 4 from Tascam is now shipping. TASCAM has once again redefined the high-end of sampling workstations with GigaStudio 4. Building on the features of GigaStudio 3, the new version supports 64-bit operating systems like XP64 and Windows Vista 64, allowing users to access up to 128 gigabytes of RAM for loading massive sample libraries and compositional templates. GigaStudio 4 also hosts VSTi and GVI virtual instruments, loading or stacking instruments alongside GigaStudio instrument libraries.

When hosted in GigaStudio 4, virtual instruments based on TASCAM´s GVI gain the advantages of kernel-level processing, offering lower latency than other host applications. Hundreds of enhancements have been made from GigaStudio 3, TASCAM´s previous TEC Award-Winning sampling workstation, such as an all-new QuickSound database tool, additions to the QuickEdit interface and many user interface improvements.

GigaStudio 4 builds on the features of GigaStudio 3, including unlimited polyphony, 96kHz/24-bit sample support, 128 MIDI channel playback and embedded GigaPulse convolution reverb. The iMIDI rule programming includes legato mode, round-robin, alternation, portamento, dynamic expression filters and more to add realism to sampled performances. The new version supports Windows XP and Windows Vista (32 and 64-bit versions). TASCAM is also announcing GVI 4, a new plug-in instrument powered by Giga technology offering both Mac and PC support.

For the ultimate performance from a sampled instrument, whether composing film scores, producing albums or playing the ultimate live performance rig, there´s no substitute for the power of GigaStudio.
