Deskew Technologies has updated Gig Performer, its VST/AU audio plugin host for Mac and Windows users, to version 2.2.
Gig Performer is for use by keyboard players, guitarists, drummers, singers and FoH sound engineers who care about usability and efficient workflow to quickly create and play the sounds they need for their live shows or studio recording sessions. Gig Performer is designed to be quick and easy to use for musicians who don't want technology to get in their way but need the right functionality to support their working and touring lives easier.
Deskew Technologies would also like to welcome Forte users to Gig Performer and invite them to read a special blog article written by an Forte user to help new users switch over to Gig Performer.
