18 Nov Gig Performer Stress Test Video
Here is a short video showing a part of our testing process for Gig Performer.
We have been using Gig Performer live, on stage, for a while now (even before it went into the first beta stage). We have a long and grueling beta stages where beta users test all aspects of Gig Performer and make sure it’s solid . Still – we wanted to make sure that if you use Gig Performer on stage for hours and hours – or even days – it will still perform without a glitch and will not stop running.
In the video we are running the Gig Performer with a few rackspaces containing various instruments and widgets to control them. Each rackspace is a collection of separate virtual instruments, effects and processors.
We control the Gig Performer using a virtual MIDI player we developed. This virtual player will simultaneously play notes, twiddle the knobs, sliders, buttons… and switch rackspaces – mid play. It will do this much faster than you’ll even want to, but it does stress test the Gig Performer quite a bit. We simply run this with a new build and let it play these wired and random sounds for hours on end.
Take a look and see how it all worked out …
