I run Gigasampler 1.6 with a on a P2 350 (128 megs. RAM) Soundblaster Live card for audio and MIDI (128 megs. RAM). I run the MIDI output into my MOTU MIDI Express (Mac). Audio is on a G4. I get a lot of polyphony overload (voice robbing) with only a few tracks running on Giga. Is this a function of the MIDI on the Soundblaster or what? Thanks.
Your Soundblaster\'s MIDI is probably fine. I\'ve never had any problems with it. However, it\'s pretty easy to use up Gigasampler\'s polyphony with stereo and/or layered samples. Gigapiano alone will go beyond the limit if you use sustain pedal. Also, notes that overlap slightly or have release triggers can cause huge polyphony peaks. - Doug
