GigBaby/GigDaddy Sharing Utility for Windows PC
This utility will allow you to exchange GigBaby audio files with your
desktop. This is intended to be a temporary solution until the fully
featured GigBaby! Sharing Utility is available.
This is a preliminary release. Some features have been disabled.
You must have Bonjour already installed on your PC. If you are using iTunes then
Bonjour is probably already installed. Otherwise you can download and install Bonjour
from Apple's website: Bonjour 1.0.5
This software is beta (still in test). Be sure to back up all your data before
using the utility.
The utility includes an open-source program (sndfilelib) to convert
CAF files to formats compatible with DAW software. This software may introduce artifacts
into the audio files. This issue is under investigation.
There is no installer. You can simply unzip the files into a new directory.
Here are the steps:
Open the zip file that you downloaded (GigBabySharingUtilityWin.zip).
Open explorer and find a place to Create a New Folder. Or, right click on
the desktop to Create a New Folder.
Name the folder anything you like. GigBaby is a good option.
Drag the contents of the zip file into the New Folder.
That's it. Your install is complete.
Double click on GigBabySharingUtilityWin.exe to run
If you like you can create shortcuts by dragging the exe onto your taskbar or desktop.
Beta version 0.7 of the Sharing Utility for Windows has the following
You must initiate the connection from the iPod or iPhone. (Cannot select device from the device list)
These limitations will be lifted in subsequent releases.
