Yesterday I bought galaxy piano and I like very much.
I tried it with the Olivier patch and it is more better.
I would like to know what are the difference between the Olivier patch loaded in kontakt and in kompakt player?
Another question. Is there anyone who played galaxy successfully on laptop?
Could someone answer me?
About Galaxy live playing with a laptop, you can do it. In my case, I do it, but without the LFE layer. I keep pedal down and pedal up layers + release layer + non struck resonance layer.
I've got a P4B 2,4GHz with 1Go RAM and a 2.5' 60Go 8Mo 7200T hard drive, and a MOTU 828 (48kHz, 24 bits, buffer 512, 10 ms)
My dfd settings are :
preload buffer = 480kb
voice buffer = 0.75Mo (disabled disk cache)
polyphony = 248
I reach 100% cpu use around a total 140 voices polyphony while playing (a quickly repeated 7 notes chord with sustain pedal down). So, when I adjust the polyphony of each rack to never go over a total 130 voices, it's all right.
When i play a glissando up on white keys with pedal down, I'm very close to HD limit (i.e. 104 polyphony voices while playing 52 different notes).
If you want better perf, you could use a firewire800 HD. I never tested it. By the way, my internal HD is better than my firewire400 HD (a 120Go 8Mo 7200T IBM 180GXP).
