Just trying out my new copy of Gigastudio with W Trachtmans steinway piano, and cannot get Gigastudio to play more than 64 voices at once. I have set the polyphony in settings to 160 (increased from the original 64 that it is set at on istallation) and am trying to play back a midi file of Rhapsody in blue for two pianos, but Giga refuses to go past a peak polyphony of 64.
My setup is Athon 750, 256Mb ram, 30Gb IBM 100udma drive (dma is ticked)
I KNOW!!! I want them to up the Poly if I can get reliable high polyphony from one drive and not max the CPU out.. I should be albe to get about 200 note poly no prob..and with a 1.5ghz maybe 250 maybe when 2 ghz cpus start showing up the next version of Giga will have its limit stretched a bit
300 is pretty unrealistic I think - maybe you can do it with SCSI I don\'t know, but IDE drives are too slow. I can get 160 most of the time, but sometimes I might get a \'screwup\' when I am really pushing GS, resulting in a delay in the sound or maybe even a crash.
