Re: Audiophile and gigastudio on standalone pc.....
Some things to keep in mind about your new system:
* How much ram do you plan on having
* What version of gigastudio (96, 164)?
* How large will the samples be that you\'ll be loading?
* How fast is your hard drive?
I have a P4 2 gigahertz, 512 megs RAM, Giga 96, Audiophile 2496 with XP and have some problems but I think most of my problems deals with the complexity of what I am trying to do. If I never went beyond 16 midi channels, medium sized samples, and reasonable complexity midi files I think my setup would be more than adequate. Unfortunately, I load huge midi files (40 staves, 500 measures, 32 channels), moderately large samples, and I always have these three problems:
1.) Crackling and popping (which seems common on the audiophile 2496 from what I\'ve seen on this message board)
2.) Error code 5: unable to allocate memory when loading the samples (very frustrating!)
3.) Slow down and drop outs on the MIDI during more complex polyphony. This is especially noticeable with reverb so I think this is a problem with the CPU or motherboard not being quick enough.
