Long live ARIA!
Tascam has chosen to cease development and support of its popular GigaStudio sampler and product line, including GigaPulse, GigaViolin, and Giga VI, breaking a widely-used product and various other products based on it.
MusicRadar has the story: Tascam axes GigaStudio
and Film Music Magazine’s Peter Alexander broke the news first:
Tascam Ceases Giga Development as of July 21; Sales And Support End December 31
Tascam has made no official statement, but the report has been confirmed in a message thread by Tascam’s Marketing Manager, and the product has been removed to the discontinued section.
