I tried GigaVST a while ago with terrible results but thought I would give it a go again now that I've upgraded my computer (P4 3.2) and picked up GS3. I was wondering if it might be a better option than Rewire, thinking about easier options for stereo outputs, more soundcard flexibility and perhaps better performance. After my entire shutdown the first time I tried to load the wrapper in Cubase tonight, after that it seemed rock solid. I messed with it for a couple of hours and had no problems whatsoever with 3 instruments in GS (using enough instances of GigaPulse to push the CPU to 50% and get some audio crackling) and one VST (NI FM7) in Cubase SX 2. Is anyone opting for this over using Rewire? Good success or...??
I am finding better performance using GigaVST than Rewire too.
However, using either, I get a problem with any track played back from SX2.2 with sustain pedal data on it - the sustain info fails to come off at the right times and I get messy overhanging notes... very annoying.
Thanks for these replies. Yeah, it is too bad we have to drop yet more cash to get this stuff to work. This has been an ongoing thing for me the last while...newbie stuff largely, although I'm sure I wasn't alone in opting for a complete system upgrade essentially just to be able to run GigaPulse. Still got a few more days left before the GVA trial runs out...will enjoy the free ride while I can!

I love this setup because I can load a HUGE template in GS3 and do EQing, FX sends etc. within Nuendo without having to open big sample libraries with every song. I've got real time playing latency down to about 10 msec but on playback, timing is sample accurate.
