Topic: Giga and XP compatability

    Giga and XP compatability

    Hi everyone, I\'m in the process of getting a new computer and jumping into Gigastudio. I would like to know how many people are using Giga with XP. The tech at my local computer store recommended Win 98 because XP has problems when using all four midi outs. Does anyone know if this problem has been fixed in the latest update? I really would like to use XP, as I would like to use Cubase SX on the same machine, which will only run on 2000/XP. Thanks.

    Simple and straight answer: \"NO!\" XP looks nice and all but in the case of GS it\'s not advisible for example it uses up to twice the amount of ram ME/98 does.

    Go for a tweaked ME install I would recomment [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
    since you can virtually put anything OFF in that OS.

    Good luck!

    XP = nightmare.
    Wish I hadn\'t taken Cakewalk Tech\'s advice.

    For me, XP has been a pleasure. I\'ve had no problems, even with wide range of software installed on a single machine.

    with win98E you can expect close to 1 gig of memory

    with xp, you get conciderably less than 1 gig.

    Even if you get 2 gigs of physical memory under XP you will be restricted to less than one gig

    There is no real reason right now to move to XP

    XP has been working fine for me. Haven\'t had a crash in 6 months!

    Me has been my worst nightmare with Giga.

    Tried every optimization in the book.

    Switched to XP on same machine and life is amazing with Gigastudio!!!

    Never crashes!!

    Me sucks hard!

    Ps. Soundchaser sends EVERYTHING out with XP now.

    Does that tell you something?

    XP works 100% in my setup. No crashes, no latency. Interesting is that I have only one 120 GB harddisk! No clicks, full poly. I use it only for GIGA and midi sequencer. No recording.
