Giada is a free, minimal, hardcore audio tool for DJs and live performers.
How does it work? Just pick up your sample, drop it in any channel and start the show by using this tiny piece of software as a loop machine, drum machine, sequencer, live sampler or yet as an effect (VST) host. Giada aims to be a compact and portable virtual device for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows for production use and live sets.

Tweak your sounds with the live sampler from external sources, the live quantizer, a built-in wave editor, the action recorder and the action editor.
vst plugin support
An experimental feature which transforms Giada into a native VST host. Plugin support for Linux, Windows and OS X, of course.
lightweight and powerful
32 bit floating point audio engine, sample-accurate looping system, multithread support. 100% exotic dependencies free.
100% open-source GPL
