I have a serious problem with Gigastudio 3.0 / 3.1. I have three (identical) systems (Pentium IV 3.0 gHz / Asus P4C800 E Deluxe / RME HDSP 9652 - 9632
Windows XP Pro SP2) running GS 3.0 / 3.1 and since last week GS3 gives warning: Gigastudio did not start properly. Do you want to run Gigastudio in diagnostic mode? When I do, the troubleshooting tab (warning messages) says: No Giga Compatible Cards / Kernel Drivers not loaded / General Warning. When I start further, GS greyed out midi in ports. I lost GS midi in ports on all three systems (VSL performance tool doesn't show GS in ports any more either). I use Midi over Lan on all three systems and it worked fine for a long time. I updated all soundcard drivers (RME HDSP 9652 - and RME HDSP 9632) to latest version and tried to reinstall GS, but nothing helps!
My three gigastudio pc´s are controlled from main DAW via XP remote desktop. As said Midi is sent from my DAW via Midi Over Lan 2.X. Audio is sent back from giga pc´s via optic cables (PC1: HDSP
9652 to HDSP Madi / PC2: HDSP 9632 to HDSP Madi / PC3: HDSP 9632 to HDSP Madi).
My main DAW Looks as follows:
Pentium IV 3.0 gHz
Asus P4C800 E Deluxe
1 x Matrox P650 AGP
1 x Matrox G450 PCI

HD1: Maxtor 80 GB IDE (system)
HD2: Maxtor 200 GB IDE (Backup/video)
HD3: Quantum 80 GB SCSI (samples)
HD4: IBM 146 GB SCSI (samples)
HD5: IBM 146 GB SCSI (audio)
HD6: IBM 146 GB SCSI (samples)
HD7: IBM 146 GB SCSI (samples)
2x EIZO Flexscan L885 (20.1 inch TFT, 1 on P650 DVI, 2 on G450 VGA) 1X Clarity Bobcat II (40 inch LCD, On P650 DVI)
I recently updated the Madi driver of the main DAW from 2.3 to 2.4. Version
2.4 has new midi functions for total mix, could this have something to do with it?
I've sent an email to tascam support too, but I didn't get any reaction till now. I really need the machines to work, I am in the middle of a production and this is all very bad for the creative process!
