Montebello, CA (March 28, 2006)–Bigga Giggas, creators of professional sound libraries for Tascam’s GigaStudio since 1999, have released the Platinum Edition, a saxophone library in full 24-bit audio that takes full advantage of GigaStudio 3’s features.
Available on DVD, and featuring vintage Selmer Mark VI baritone, tenor, alto and soprano saxes, Platinum Edition comes with all new GSi presets designed to take advantage of GS3 features such as instrument stacking and iMIDI playback rules for more expressiveness than previously possible from a sax sample library. According to Tascam, these are true multi-velocity sample instruments, not just looped phrases; every note has been sampled. Close-mic mono and room ambience stereo versions for each articulation are all there, with over 30 articulation types for each instrument, and all mapped for maximum player control in native Gigasampler format. Playing style and velocity levels are meticulously matched on all four saxes for consistency and ease-of-use. Plus, extensive new documentation is available in PDF format.
Tascam’s newest upgrade to GigaStudio 3 adds many features. GS3 version 3.1x features iMIDI templates, making it easier to use iMIDI rules (said to add life to instrument sounds), and a host of new iMIDI rules and features. The Stack Instrument Selection feature lets the user quickly assign keyswitches to swap sounds on a MIDI channel during a performance. New GigaPulse features have been added, too, as well as user interface enhancements and other improvements designed to ease your GigaStudio workflow.
