Please make my life a better one by releasing an outstanding hardware platform for us extensive Giga users.
When I mean extensive I mean using the best available sound Libs in & out of the market, in highly polyphonical situations
and with less than an million years to finish the task.
1) The ability to use a lot of Ram
_DDWW close to 1gig of ram
_GigaStings I would suspect between 2 & 3 gig
_Ultimate Perc. + Ult Timp +Mar&Vibes something like 1,5 or 2 gig
_DD orch. brass should be 1 gig
_Leap Brass some 500 mb
_Harp,Piano,drum kits, upright bass and so on.
This comes up to nearly 10 gig of ram no kiddin\'.
with Ram limitation on PC wich is around 1,5gig at the very best.
2) High polyphony is what the Nemesys NCS44 was supposed to give us = 4x times the polyphony of a Gigasampler =4x64=256
Now the same thing with Gigastudio 160=4x160=640
If you cut it in half to get stereo=320 voices
I would say that it\'s plenty of course but not too much I you really hate clicks & pops like I do
a rock solid system to run gigastudio with rockin\' CPU power
10 gig of Ram
Tascam hardware quality & knowhow.
128 midi channels (at least 64 in please)
Fully compatible with comon studio equipment (at least the Tascam line of products, refering to sx1 & MX-2424 not fully compatible)
Imop You\'ll get a winner and we\'ll get the most powerfull Ultimate sampler ever built ; and I can\'t think of anyone beeing too nostalgic over dealing with windows and mocking ¨PCs
