Information for Plugin Alliance Customers

Jun 5, 2021 | Knowledge Base Articles, MS Windows, OS X

Update (May 31st, 2023)

As of May 31st, 2023, the Plugin Alliance editions of Gig Performer are no longer available for sale and will not be updated. Gig Performer can now be purchased exclusively from its developer Deskew Technologies, LLC in their Online Store.

More information on this important change may be found here.


Plugin Alliance used to sell two customized versions of Gig Performer licensed from Deskew Technologies:

  • Locked: This version was included with the Megabundle and the Musician Bundle and only worked with Plugin Alliance plugins
  • Unlocked: This version was sold as a separate product and worked with 3rd party plugins

Issues with Plugin Alliance plugins and Apple Silicon processors

In early 2021, Apple released a new line of computers using their new ARM based processors, also known as Apple Silicon.

The macOS version of Gig Performer supports both Intel and Apple Silicon processors.

Unfortunately, as of the time of writing (June 5th, 2021), the plugins installed by Plugin Alliance were still Intel-only. If you are running Gig Performer 4 natively on the new processors, you will not be able to access the Plugin Alliance plugins. This is particularly an issue if you are using the Plugin Alliance locked edition of Gig Performer as it is only able to use Plugin Alliance plugins.

Please see this KB article for how to solve this problem.
