    Gigastudio 3: hit key c4 and hear g2

    I recently installed Gigastudio 3.
    If I now hit the key c4 (with several piano libraries) I hear g2.
    What is that?
    How can I change this?

    Thank you for help

    My first guess is that your midi keyboard may be transposing the notes before it sends them to the computer. Check out any transpose settings on your keyboard.

    I just tested it.
    My Gigastudio 3 is running on a new PC.
    My old PC with gigastudio 2.5 has the same libraries and the same midi-keyboard.
    I hit c4 and hear c4.

    I think it is something else?

    Thank you for the quick help.

    Sample rate mismatch? Between your sound card setting and the gigastudio setting, or between an external clock source and the sound card?

    I had the same problem. And sometimes it reoccurs....haven't figured it out yet, but I can reboot and it works properly.

    I think the "sample mismatch-idea" from quqliel could be right but I don't understand enough from this topic:

    In gigastudio 3 with sample rate 44.100 hit key c4 (middle c) sounds as g2.
    With sample rate 96.000 hit c4 sounds as c3.
    Further the pitch of audio cd's ist too deep ( as the cd is moving too slowly) for all sample rates of the sound card (echo gina 3g).

    Now I have deinstalled gigastudio and newly installed the soundcard.
    The pitch of audio cd's is still too low/deep.

    I do not know what to do. I appreciate every help!

    If gigastudio could handle 188.000, then you'd be in tune -- maybe the soundcard is OVER-capable, and should be configured at a lower setting?

    If you run out of possible configuration issues contact Echo support. They are doing a great job and will get back to you within a day or so. I have a similar problem with one of my Layla 3G cards. No matter what I do the audio is played back in the wrong speed/pitch. The card worked great for about a month and then suddenly started to misbehave. It could be a driver problem or a hardware problem. They apparently have fixed something with clock chip resets recently in the driver but that version is not released yet. I had to proceed with my project and simply replaced the card with my old Delta 1010 I had on the shelf for the time being which means I still haven't tried the fix. I've promised myself to do it any day now...

    thank you quuiel, thank you Matthias:
    I tried all possible sample rates (from 32000 (?) up to 96000). Isa the the sample rate get lower the pitch ist going lower. There has been a 'jump' (from 32000 to 96000), that worked one time (for audio cd) but I could not reproduce it permanently.

    I will contact Echo.

    The pitch should NOT change when you change the sample rate of the sound card. There is some other component in the system which is detuning the sample rate.

    Try "locking" the sample rate on the driver, and see if this solves the problem.

    Are you using word clock or lightpipe/spdif inputs in the system?
