Announcing the Official Release of Giada 1.0 Open-Source Loop Machine: Here’s What’s New

Giada 1.0 has been launched today marking the first mature version of this open-source, hardcore, and minimalistic loop machine and music production software designed specifically for DJs, live performers, and electronic musicians.

Being a significant update, Giada 1.0 introduces a slew of new features. This includes a newly designed main window with vertical audio meters, a revamped Column menu to enhance usability, and a novel Velocity Editor widget in the Sample Channel Action Editor.

The release also features recursive buffer rendering, a redesigned Main Menu tailored for macOS support, added support for visualizing the beat number in the Main Sequencer, and an enhanced facility for sending MIDI data via armed channels to external devices.

Starting today’s release, Giada will automatically detect and use the default audio device if the user doesn’t specify one. Giada 1.0 also fine-tunes the audio preview rendering process, which is now active only when the Sample Editor is open, and improves the zoom functionality with the mouse wheel in the Sample and Action Editors.

Various bugs were addressed as well to fix some operations in the Sample Editor that didn’t work correctly, fix the grid not showing up correctly in the Sample Editor, and fix the Record-on-signal mode so that it deactivates after recording audio and properly quit.

For Linux users, this release removes duplicated .desktop file generation and updates the metainfo.xml file. Of course, some refactoring and code cleanups are also present in this update to make Giada more stable and reliable when producing music.

For more details, check out the release notes on the project’s official website, from where you can also download Giada 1.0.0 as a universal AppImage binary that lets you run the software on virtually any GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything. You can also install Giada as a Flatpak app from Flathub.
