Gig Performer 3.5 is now available on OS X and MS Windows

Gig Performer 3.5 has been released by the development team and we encourage everyone to update to this version as soon as possible, unless of course you are on tour, in which case you should wait until you get back!

There are some new features and also some very important updates and fixes that are really worthwhile.

If you were not prompted to automatically update Gig Performer, you can down the latest version from the main Gig Performer website. Although probably unnecessary, we encourage everyone to make backups of their existing gigfiles.

Updated online documentation is available here.

Is it save to do so before my gig tonight

I wouldn’t, but not for the reasons you might think.

See this article for my thoughts on when one should (or should not) update any software!

Hi, I’ve been having problems updating… In GP, when I check my updates, GP finds the new update, then downloads it, but when it comes to installing it, a windows appears: “Something went wrong”. And this is goin’ on for a few hours. Am I the only one having issues?

Are you on Mac or Windows? Please see this KB article.

I’m on Mac, I’ve read the article and now I’m on GP 3.5, thank you :grin:

So downloading/installing worked? Or did you do the file permission trick?

Glad to be back in the swing o’ things…can’t wait to d/l the new 3.5!

Thanks again. Youze Guyz’re the Best!!! :-:grin:


Yes, the first method worked fine
