I have converted VOTA to EXS format using the built in import, but it didn\'t convert 100%. I have never used Giga, so figuring out exactly what all VOTA should be doing was a process. The keyswitching seems to transfer fine, but the MOD wheel crossfades do not. The release samples don\'t seem to import correctly either. I have also tried to import using MOTU Mach5, but so far have had less than spectacular results. When I get all of the programming figured out, it seems like Mach5 will actually offer the most flexabilty, but all of the presets will have to be customized.
I am still early on in the process, but my opinion so far is that EXS imports many presets in a useable form at first, but in the long run Mach5 will be more functional. As I get a chance to work on this, I\'ll try to report more.
I would also be very interested in other user\'s experiences.
