So probably Tascam pulled the emergency trigger line. The code base and trademarks of GigaStudio were sold to Garritan, however they just extracted the Gigapulse effect for their own sampler engine, but never became happy with the rest of GigaStudio's code. Even replacing the "Tascam" logos and names and recompiling GigaStudio as product (as is) under the Garritan brand was too complicated and too much work. So they never did it. Probably Garritan underestimated the efforts and the amount of information one needs to actually be able to compile a huge project like GigaStudio.
We have been in touch with Garritan in the past, we discussed whether there would be any oportunity regarding a collaboration to keep the GigaSampler/GigaStudio format alive. I.e. Gary Garritan offered us the usage of the GigaSampler/GigaStudio brand. However we never really found something that would make sense for both sides.
Now Garritan sold his company (and with it the rights on GigaStudio) and I have no contact with him anymore.
