Soundlib releases G-Player - Giga player for Mac

Soundlib

Soundlib has announced the release of G-Player, the first native "Giga player" for Mac OS X. G-Player was designed to play the large orchestral sound libraries and supports disk streaming, dimensions, keyswitches and layered instruments.

Features:

  • No conversion required: Save time and disk space, G-Player plays directly all your Giga sound libraries without any conversion. Complex features such as dimensions, keyswitches and layered instruments are natively supported.
  • Disk Streaming: Only the initial portion of each sample is loaded into the computer's memory, while the rest of the sample is streamed from the hard disk. This allows you to play instruments that are larger than the available memory.
  • Easy Parameter Editing: The most commonly used sample parameters are directly accessible on the main window. For example, you can decrease or increase the release time of all the samples with just one knob.
  • 24-bit Support: G-Player can play and stream 24-bit sample libraries and uses a 32-bit floating point audio engine.
  • Memory Management: To reduce memory usage, all instances of G-Player will share the allocated resources and samples. If two G-Player instances use the same sample, it will only be loaded once.
  • Multi-Layer crossfade: G-Player can play layered instruments with up to 8 layers of crossfade. Each layer's crossfade is defined by 4 points which precisely determine the fade in and fade out segments. This feature is used by the most prestigious Giga sound libraries and is natively supported by G-Player.

Pricing & Availability

Priced at $129, G-Player is available for Mac OS X in Audio Unit and VST instrument plug-in formats. It is also available as a multi-instrument standalone application. A demo version is available for download.
