I'm running Giga 3 on a pentium 4 - 3ghz machine with 2 gigs of ram, an internal drive and two 7200rpm 160gigabyte drives in a raid for streaming.
I noticed that if you change the polyphony setting and hit apply it doesn't take effect until you restart gigastudio. I jacked it up to 600 voices (and laughed to myself) after holding the sustain pedal and recording every note possible, (with some pounding on the controller) on a vsl string instrument and the giga 2 piano and playing it back, it seemed to peak at 384 voices. I'm pretty new to gigastudio in general, only been using v 2.5 for 3 months but it seems fairly impressive. This may be a stupid question but is this a reliable means of determining what I might expect out of my voice count? Also, would more ram allow more voices on a system like this or is it pretty much about the processor speed with 2 gigs of ram?
3. I also noticed a solo bug in stacking. I ended up unchecking solo but everything was still muted, this happened a couple of times. You can still hit the mute button (by accident) on an already muted track (because another track is solo'd) and in doing so a few times, it seems to have geeked-out. anyone else notice this?
