no no no not using the sequencer - in the old gigasamler version I had you could right click when loading your gig and pick an instrument (or patch) within an individual gig (if multiple ones were defined for the gig).
Try typing *.gig into the quicksound search window.
That should cause all the files with a .gig extension to appear in the Instrument list (the one between the drive instrument tree and the loaded instrument list).
I have nothing to add to Chadwick's advise, except that there is three sections on the bottom of your Mixer-screen. On the left you should see a view similar to Windows explorer. Clicking on any of the files containing samples, opens the second,middle window. On this window you click on any +, gives you the subfiles for the sample. double clicking on any of them loads the sample into the track selected in the mixer window (blue margin around the track). This action also puts the same sample to the right-side window which contains the samples loaded into GS3.
Mr. Chadwick, it is nice to see your name again, I'll never will forget your helping advise on the old Tascam forum. I hope you are having fun. I see that you were born a year after I escaped from Hungary with my wife and two kids..., kido..
nope - I know how to load a gig file. Maybe I'm not explaining myself well.
When you define (or many gig files already have predefined) you can setup several different instruments within ONE gig file.
Gigastudio 3 (and all prior versions) always load instrument 0 when you load a gig. After the gig has been loaded you can switch to a different instrument within that same gig file . . . it has been over a year since I last used version 2.5 I think it was, after a gig was loaded you could right click and/or there was a dropdown box in which you could select instruments within a gig to be loaded.
How the heck do you do that in Gigastudio 3? Can't find it anywhere . . . . anyone know what I mean now?
