Gig Performer and JamOrigin’s MIDI Guitar 2 plugin

Sep 20, 2018 | Gig Performer Blog, Knowledge Base Articles, OS X

MIDI Guitar 2 from Jam Origin is a wonderful plugin if you need to convert your guitar sound into MIDI and subsequently to any sound you want limited only by your collection of instrument plugins.

I have been using both MIDI Guitar 1 and 2.
We were recently in touch with Jam Origin and we received an important piece of information regarding the usage of MIDI Guitar 2 and Gig Performer on OS X.

The VST version of this plugin works as expected. You insert it into your rackspace, connect your guitar to its audio input channel and your MIDI data comes out of its MIDI port. You can of course do this in as many rackspaces as you want.

However, the AU (AudioUnit) version of this plugin does not produce MIDI on the MIDI out channel. Instead, it creates a new virtual MIDI Output port and you will then need to create a corresponding MIDI In Block to receive MIDI from the MIDI Guitar plugin. Doable but rather extra unnecessary work.

In short, since Gig Performer supports VST3, VST and AU plugins, prefer the VST version over the AU version and just insert a MIDI Guitar 2 VST plugin into a rackspace when you need it.
