G-Player is a native Giga file player for Mac OS X and Windows. It has been designed to support the large orchestral sound libraries (streaming), the complex articulations (key switch, control switch) and the layered instruments with multiple crossfades. G-Player has 16 parts and multi outputs. G-Player allows you to quickly modify some program parameters (ADSR, VCA, VCF, Pitch Bend) without having to edit and save the giga file.
G-Solo is the little brother of G-Player, it is available only as a plugin format. It has exactly the same features than G-Player but is limited to one instrument and therefore is only stereo. It is not recommended to use G-Player and G-Solo at the same time.
1. No conversion required
Forget converting and importing with random results. Save time and disk space. G-Player plays all your Gigastudio sound libraries without any conversion. G-Player was designed to play the large orchestral sound libraries and supports disk streaming, dimensions, keyswitches and layered instruments.
2. Lost in translation
In a Gigastudio file, every sample zone has its own envelopes and parameters, this is usually lost when the file is converted to another sampler format that needs to group zones with similar parameters. Not with G-Player. G-Player plays all the samples with the finest level of detail.
3. Best Gigastudio player
G-Player was created to emulate the Gigastudio sound as close as possible. When other samplers can only improve their Gigastudio file import, we work directly on the audio engine until we get a perfect result. For example, G-Player is the only sampler that emulates the 3 velocity curves of Gigastudio (linear, non-linear and special).
G-Player is optimized for the Gigastudio format and is very efficient in memory and CPU usage. G-Player can play and stream the compressed and accelerated samples which results in less hard disk activity than any another conversion based solution.
5. Easy 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.
6. 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 Gigastudio sound libraries and is natively supported by G-Player.
