ILIO and Deskew Technologies jointly announced that ILIO has been named the exclusive international distributor for Deskew's Gig Performer music software, effective May 30.

Running on both OS X and Windows with full MIDI and Open Sound Control (OSC) support, Gig Performer
's innovative approach and focus on usability is paired with an intuitive rack design, called a Rackspace, which transforms a performer's plug-ins into the most powerful, yet user-friendly live-music software system. An impressive list of cutting-edge features let musicians control multiple instruments, layer sounds, and employ authentic effects easily—all with little CPU usage.
"Gig Performer is a perfect complement to the wide range of top music software titles we distribute, and ILIO is glad to have Deskew Technologies on our roster. Gig Performer enables musicians to assemble their favorite plug-ins into worry-free onstage rigs, which makes getting through a live set as stressless as when working with hardware instruments."
— Mark Hiskey, president of ILIO
