    Question ASIO Sound Card? Must I?

    I'm using GPO with Overture 3 on a system I built with a SoundBlaster Audigy Platinum sound card. This was Creative Labs' first Audigy card, which I bought about two years ago.

    The following issues currently plague my Overture/GPO projects:

    -changing velocity of one or more notes does not change how they sound in playback

    -hairpins and dynamic markings(p, ffff) don't increase or decrease in volume even when I select modulation

    I'm using the ASIO4All driver to run GPO and the default drivers for Overture, whatever they are. My Audigy card apparently is not ASIO-compatible. Could it be that ASIO4All only provides limited functionality between GPO and the host program, or that I need to wait for Overture 4, which will be a VST host, or do I just need to upgrade to a ASIO-compatible sound card? Or all three?

    You didn't accidentally set GPO Studio to "Ignore Mod Wheel" in Settings | Mode, did you?

    Nope. It is set to default.

    Well, it won't be harmful to set it to ignore mod wheel. That is how I have used GPO Studio. But now I use VST. There is an asio driver, free, I think, that you can learn about by doing a search ot this forum. It is called something like ASIO 4all. Also, you might check the Creative site and see if if there are updated drivers that might be useful. I think that would be my first move.

    Thanks. I've talked to someone else at work who definitely reccomends upgrading to an ASIO-compliant sound card. The ASIO4All driver won't always give you the full functionality of an actual ASIO driver, although it's nice that someone took the time to design it. So I guess it's off to CompUSA for a new sound card.
