Before I get flamed, I did search the forums on this topic and found some valuable information, thanks all. With 2 gig of ram and one of the tweaks I now get a reported 63% ram usage. However, the memory test indicates I have 2047 megs of ram but only 1535 available to Giga so the 63% translates to only 968 meg of ram for samples. While searching on this subject I found some users getting up to 1200 meg of ram for samples and I'd like to know if this is possible on my system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Asus A8V Deluxe
2 gig (4 X 512) of Corsair XMS ram
AMD 64 3500 CPU
ATI 64 meg graphics card
RME Multiface and PCI card (driver 291)
Midi Over Lan (for midi to Giga)
I forgot to mention; I've been a PC user ever since Cubase VST 3.?, Gigasampler 1 (Even as far back as Win 95) and I consider myself pretty knowledgable, so my computer is as streamlined as can be, except for the problem with Giga only seeing 1535 meg of ram. There are NO other programs running so I don't understand why Giga can't see the whole 2 gig of ram.
