Tascam has announced Giga Virtual Instrument 4 (GVI 4) will be available for Intel-based Macs this year.
Previously only available for Windows users, GVI is the only plug-in sampler instrument powered by the Giga sampling engine, and shares many of the specs that made GigaStudio the first choice for professionals worldwide, such as unlimited polyphony, 96kHz/24-bit sample support and embedded GigaPulse convolution. GVI 4 for Mac runs as a 16-part multi-timbral plug-in instrument in Audio Unit, VSTi and RTAS formats, for compatibility with virtually all Mac professional applications – including Pro Tools and Logic Pro.
“Mac OS X was built from the ground up for audio and is used by professional musicians around the world,” said Ron Okamoto, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “We’re thrilled that Tascam has brought GVI 4 to the Mac and look forward to seeing what musicians will do with this great sampler running on our Intel-based Macs.”
TASCAM GVI 4 (cross-platform) will be available in the Fall of 2007 with a manufacturers suggested retail price of $399. Update paths from GVI 3 will be announced soon.
