Kirk divided up the gigs in the latest release, so it loads more quickly. One GB is probably okay. You can certainly use KHSS with that much, though I\'m not sure if you can load every last articulation at the same time with that. I can load the whole thing, plus Woodwind Collection and a few other bits with 1.5 GB.
I received mine in the mail about five weeks ago. If you haven\'t received anything, I\'d recommend contacting Kirk.
To be honest, I haven\'t event installed the latest gigs. I had already broken the samples into groups that work for me, and I had done my bank re-programming for my templates. I e-mailed Kirk when I received the discs and confirmed that there are no new samples, just programming changes, so I\'ve stayed with my custom versions.
