Re: Why to convert instruments files to GS3 file format?
You will get faster pre-loading.
You can change the compression settings and create more efficient files if that is needed.
You can use new features to redesign instruments.
For instance, if you have a GIG file which features both UP and DOWN bows, then you can program a GigaStudio 3.0 version to combine the two articulations into one instrument with Round Robin dimensions to switch the bowings automatically on repeated notes.
You can program GSI files, which are like GSP files except limited to the loading of a single MIDI channel. These are excellent for custom routing GigaPulse instances to specific behaviors, etc.
So, in essence, you can create some really advanced Giga 3.0 content for yourself from 2.x libraries which have lots of raw material.
GOS, Sonic Implants Symphonic libraries, VSL, Dan Dean...almost any Giga 2.x content can take on as many new features as you're willing to program.
