Garritan says that it will reveal its plans for the newly acquired assets "in the coming months".

Derek Davis, EVP/COO of TASCAM parent company TEAC America commented: "After reviewing over 20 companies, we believe that Garritan is the best candidate to carry on development of the Giga platform. Garritan has demonstrated a sincere interest in building on the present Giga technology and taking it to the next level."

Garritan Corporation CEO Gary Garritan (pictured) tells PSN-e: "Giga started the sampling revolution. The Giga technology brings innovative features that no other sampler has. We're going to do some good things with the technology and move it forward to the next level."
