I\'m a GOS user for a year now. GOS/GigaStudio was my first venture in to smapling & PC\'s...I\'ve always (17 years) been live orch. & Mac. I have to say a year on that it\'s not been a good \"relationship\". I\'ve never been able to get GOS/Giga to produce \"broadcast quality\" results. So I use it for demos. Now, I acknowledge that it may very well be my own limited knowledge of using GOS and/or Giga, and a few attempts at getting help have been less than rewarding. Problem is, I just don\'t know *how* good GOS/Giga *ought* to sound? I think it\'s a great idea that many of you put samples of your work up here for all of us to hear. But it would be tremendously helpful if the poster could put up specifics about things like which patches were used, e.q. settings, etc.? I *know* this would be a helluva lot of work, but maybe Garry and/or some o the developers could do it? Then, folks like myself could set up identical sessions and (a.) see if we got similiar results and (b.) if not, try and find out \"why not\"?
Or here\'s something that would be incredibly useful...take a piece, say the Barber Adagio, and have a number of GOS whizzes do a version of it and post their results along with their settings? Again, something that would allow struggling users like myself to \"benchmark\" our systems.
Sorry for all the ranting. I just have a feeling that GOS/Giga has a *lot* more to offer than I\'m getting and I need to plot a course to get myself there.
