    Novice need you advice


    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?

    * is an Atlon 900 will give me a good polyphony?


    (I\'m appologise for my English, I\'m french)

    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
