Gig Performer for my studio

This was a great video for sure!!!
I have Gig Performer for my studio (under construction and design) and I plan on using it as a MIDI Router controlling my VSTs and 12+ Hardware Synths… My current design revolves around my Roland RD2000 and Arturia 88 Key controller to access all my HW Synths as well as the VSTs, plus all of my HW Synths are playable directly as well at any time. My thoughts/design is to be able to play any synth from my main RD2000/Arturia Controller as they are right behind my studio console for ease of smooth workflow… I’m also implementing an iPad that can control my DAW (to hit record, etc) from any HW synth as well… So rather than do all the audio routing like this video shows, I hope to accomplish something similar only using it for MIDI routing instead (i.e. select a rackspace in GP and all my synths (needed for a song) will automatically so to patch settings, etc for recording in my DAW (Cubase). Theoretically, it looks like it will work technically on paper and because of the enormous power of GP, I’m pretty sure I can make it work… (Similar to a Simpario MIDI Router, where you select a song and all synths patches automatically change and you just play)… I don’t think it’s a pipedream and if it doesn’t work properly, I’m still going to use GP in one form or another… If you understand what I decribed and want to offer any feedback, please… I’m all ears!!! Thank you!


I should have mentioned I’m using (2) mIO MIDI routers (MIDI IN/OUT to ALL HW Synths) and a MACKIE mixer with USB (Which makes it a multi channel audio interface for all the HW synths)… I think it will work just fine…

Everything you planned will work flawlessly. I even have a HW Rhodes and a Wurly which are going through GP via my audio interface for volume and effects control (and also tuning :grin:). So, you are at the beginning of your dream, but for sure it will become true.

By the way, we like fotos of studios with 12 HW synths.

Welcome to the GP community forum :wink:


Thank you for the response and validating my dream studio!! I’m gonna post some pics of the studio “under construction”… The cover “most” of the HW Synths but I have a lot of HW rack synths I can’t as thy are not wired up yet! :slightly_smiling_face:

Oh, And I have a Steroping Programmer and Poly Chainer which will make my Matrix 6 and Matrix 1000 a 12 voice Oberheim Monster!!!

I Should also mention that I’m making my Arturia 88 controller and Fantom 06 “swappable” above the piano should I want to play out live and easily program my patches on the 06 and use just the 06 and a 61 key controller with GP to play live… (I think I kinda thought of everything I need)… I do know that with all the powerful flexibility of GP I can make it happen… (Is there anything GP DOESN’T do??) :slightly_smiling_face:

Thanks for sharing! :slight_smile:
