Move your sequencer priority settings higher in Giga. This should help. But it may not solve the problem. When the processor is busy things slow down - and Giga keeps it plenty busy. It\'s all part of the joy of Windows which is not a real-time operating system. - Doug

I\'ve only had Giga for the past week, so I\'m still getting to know it, but I was intending to post about this problem as well. I have an AMD ThunderBird 1.2 Ghz processor and 768RAM and I thought that would be enough, but perhaps I was wrong. I will try changing the sequencer priority as Doug suggested, but I have a question: It has already become obvious to me that the 96 poly of my GStudio is not enough to handle my music and I was thinking of upgrading to 160. But if my sequencer is slowing down (and it\'s slowing down to about 25% of the original tempo) when the poly gets maxed out at 96, what good would it be to upgrade? Also, the processor meter hovers in the 40-50% area when the slow down happens.
I have a friend who uses approximately the same set-up you are using (the one possible difference being that he uses his exclusively for GS). He gets 160 voice polyphany out of his easily. So I suspect something else is going on here.
Also, as I mentioned, this problem for me is new: I did not have it up to a few days ago.
Ive also discovered one other thing:
If I play say an arpegio with G. Piano with the pedal down, a bunch of notes start cycling. It sounds like a three ring circus on acid. I dont know what to do.
