I have been writing some Brass Ensembles. I have been using the 2 Solo Trumpets, the Solo Mute Trumpet, Solo Horn 2 (I don\'t like the way 1 sounds), Solo Tenor Tbone, and Tuba solo 2.
I have noticed that the horn has a tendency to become VERY buggy during playback. There are pops on a lot of the atacks and even occasionally on the loop points.
I know the pops aren\'t in the samples because it happens at random to different notes every time I play OR Mixdown. Is there a bug in Kontakt Player? Or is this my Audigy 2 going nuts? (BTW, I have 1 gig DDR PC2700 and a 2.4 Gig P4, Win XP)
Other than this, this is an excellent library! Keep it up!
I\'m running GPO at the moment on a slow 933 mghz P3 with 512megs and I have not experienced the fr. horn problem you mentioned. I use brass a lot in my music and it has not happened.
This is not to say that GPO is perfect on my PC by any means, but I have found excellent results time and again with GPO and other softsynths and samplers using a Terratec EWX 24/96 audio card. The latest drivers are great IMO, and latency is very good under Sonar 2.2XL.
I always hear bad things about Soundblaster cards and various softsynths. I don\'t know specifically about the Audigy but that might be your problem right there.
I notice I am not the only ne having problems with the horns. When is the next update coming.
I do have a Audiotrak Maya 7.1 in my comp, but it is disabled after I realized how much Gigastudio 32 sucks. Plus, I didn\'t have the cash to get more than the SAM Horns. (That there [cost] is one (of many) reason why GPO is so awesome!) The Maya has ASIO as well. Maybe I should try it?
EDIT: I want to add that the same thing is happening with Solo1 as well.
