The Kontakt player in GPO will play as either a DXi or VST in Sonar 3.
I\'ve been using Kontakt in Sonar 3 with the VST wrapper and it has been working quite well. There are some bugs in the DXi version of Kontakt such as the tempo change bug that screws up note lengths. Hopefully, the DXi version of the player has this bug fixed. If not, then you just use the VST version. I have not noticed any performance or memory usage differences between the 2 versions.
Thanks to both of you for your helpful replies.I am currently running two PCs one with GS 96 and one with Sonar3. So far I am liking Sonar3. I just pre-ordered GPO and am hoping that it will allow me to get a more complete instrumentation. At this time I am only able to load (e.g) strings and part of the woodwinds into GS 96 before running out of memory.
