I\'m just discovering this new strings library. I\'m working with Miroslav Vitus strings, Akai sampler (256 Mo) and a Mac sequencer (nobody is perfect ;-) ).
I\'ve lessen all demos on this group,and I\'m now considering Giga strings with a PC as my next strings expander.
I need your help for my next PC configuration :
* are 16 midi chanels sufficient for a strings only configuration?
16 MIDI channels should be fine if you intend to capture the audio to wave and mix them in an audio sequencer/Mixing application. If you are considering realtime palyback ONLY, you can get away with 16 channels, but may find yourself wanting to use more.
As for the athlon, I use an Athlon Tbird 1 gig and get about 140 poly max. At 900mhz, you may want to consider a faster hard drive, maybe even SCSI to get full poly with no real problems
