Propellerhead Software’s ReWire is now supported by Tascam’s GigaStudio 3 streaming software sampler.
GigaStudio reads waveforms directly off of a hard drive and is offered in three versions: Orchestra, Ensemble and Solo. It offers up to unlimited polyphony, 96kHz/24-bit sample support, ReWire support, VST plug-in support and real-time convolution reverb.
With ReWire, the synthesis and sequencing power of Propellerheads’ Reason and ReBirth can be seamlessly integrated with Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Sonar, Nuendo, Live, Melodyne and now GigaStudio 3. Multiple applications can be run simultaneously as slaves using ReWire. For example, Reason, Melodyne, and Live can be integrated into a master Pro Tools session, with each application’s audio streams controlled through the master session.
“ReWire is a great technology for patching music applications together in the virtual studio, and I look forward to the potential offered by ReWire support in GigaStudio 3 for a more seamless integration of my studio environment,” commented Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer.
For software manufacturers, implementing ReWire 2 into applications is free, though Propellerhead Software does require information about ReWire implementation in other software programs. Developer information can be found at www.propellerheads.se/developer/.
