I have yet to convert all from v2 to v3 ... is it safe? Has anyone encountered any corruption ??
It makes me a WEEEEE bit nervous, but i assume the optimization is worth it (e.g. - faster loading times, more efficient streaming, etc).
I have had only ONE blue screen, thus far. cannot get a project file to open without going KABOOM, this is after i applied a few VST effects to various channels, saved, closed and tried to reopen. Luckily, my i remembered what instruments i had loaded and rebuilt the file. But now i am VERY nervous about adding effects.
I've done some conversion, in the course of editing instruments to suit, but haven't seen any benefit -- the instrument actually seems to take a little more ram, and a little longer to load. Haven't had any problems with saving, either, so if you have reason to change a file and need to do it, you shouldn't have great fears. BUt based on my limited experience I wouldn't bother re-saving files just to gain any kind of performance advantage.
I just noticed in the menu when i select "Rebuild Quicksound Database" there is option to convert all to Giga 3.0 --- when i went from Gigasampler 1.0 to Gigastudio 2.0 - it made a huge difference. Obviously, this does not.
