I\'m excited to be initiating my membership into the prestigous on-line forums for GOS. What a library, eh? Anyway, it\'s been a real nightmare getting my DAW up and running.
This would be a 3 page post if I documented all the problems, but to be poignant, I bought Giga in January and finally got it all working last week. I\'m running SX on a Dell P4 2.8 with 1.5 gigs of Ram, and my Giga machine\'s an AMD 2.2 with 1.5 gigs of RAM. Both have the MOTU 2408 interface which I have connected through light-pipe. OH Yeah, I\'m ready for some serious music production! (btw, I would not recommend running Giga on the Asus A7N8Xdel boards, cool as they are).
So about MT, I\'m not sure if it\'s working. Should there be a big difference in sound when the alt up&down is functioning correctly? I searched the forums but all the relevant posts were about Giga and sequencers on the same machine. I\'ve yet to afford the MOTU Timepiece, so I\'m stuck with a Midiman 2X2 on the Giga machine, and I\'m using a Creative SB Live card on the Dell to send midi through the game port into the Midiman. That parts working, and I\'ve recorded some material just fine, but when I throw MT into the loop, I can\'t hear much of a difference. I\'ve followed the getting started guide to a tee. One thing would clarify this a lot. When MT is working, does the midi controller surface in Giga display the patterns alternated, as it would if you selected every other note in the sequence and transposed it up 3 octaves?(Cubase\'s sequence editor goes all the way to C-2 and I\'ve been inserting the trigger in A-2, A-1, A0 and A1, LOL) Also, is it possible to have MT set up incorrectly, but still hear the sequences played back? Any thoughts would be appreciated and, again, it\'s nice to be here [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
