With Giada you can create as many channels as you need, each containing either a MIDI file or another sample in waveform format. For any of them you can start editing the content or the corresponding actions if you use the right-click menu to select the task.
The built-in editor helps you adjust the sample volume, boost the input or normalize the file. Altering the pitch is also possible, as is setting the start and end points. In case you make a selection from the loaded waveform, you can silence it, fade in or out the sound, smooth edges and more.
