Artera DSP Releases GigFast Lite

I just got to sit down with the recently-released GigFast Lite from Artera DSP. It's a standalone application and AU plugin for macOS and iOS with two "modes", both with NAM at their core:

  • The "GigFast" mode provides a set of parametric Neural Amp Models trained by Artera DSP,

  • The "NAM" mode provides support for the popular "snapshot" Neural Amp Models.

There are also a number of other features that should help folks find it really functional, including but not limited to a built-in noise gate, overdrive, an impulse response loader, reverb, and MIDI configurability.

GigFast Lite's standalone UI on macOS

Being available through the App Store, installation was a breeze and felt really polished. The parametric models are nicely-made and enjoyable to use. Popping in some of my go-to snapshots and IRs, everything worked just as I'd hoped and had me enjoying some familiar tones.

One thing that's worth pointing out is that the guys behind Artera DSP really stood out to me with their grasp of NAM and their ability to implement it capably. They reached out to me with some very well-researched questions as they were developing their parametric models that demonstrated to me how well they had picked up the open-source code and understood how it worked. Getting to see the parametric models they developed with the release of their App, they should feel proud of what they've made, and I hope folks have a look for themselves.

GigFast Lite is available as a subscription for $5.99/mo or $24.99/yr, or $39.99 to buy outright. There's also a full-featured 7-day free trial.
