I\'ve just bought the incredible GOS. But I have a little problem.
I\'m working on a Dual PIII-1Ghz with 1Gb RAM and RAID-0 and SCSI 29160 HD. Everything under winXP Pro. I\'m using VST32 with Halion 1.1, but I\'m not able to get good performance playing GOS sounds, so I\'m gonna buy another system with Giga inside connected with ADAT to my workstation.
Could anyone help me with the best configuration (hardware&software), for full 160 polyphony in GOS? What motherboard, RAM, proccessor and soundcard (I think hammerfall 9636 is a good one) should I buy for no problems?
And one more thing, I\'m using a midisport 4x4 for control my external devices, but I don´t have free midi outputs to connect it to the other computer with GOS. What could be the best option for connecting both computers with midi?
Thank you very much.
Where is the info about the release of Giga winXP compatible version?
But even if they release a winXP version. Will be better performance one computer for giga and one for cubase and recording don´t you?
WinXP has a great great stability. I\'m very happy with it!
I\'m thinking about using an Athlon 1200 with 512 MB DDR RAM and 40 GB IBM 7.200 GXP HD with Hammerfall 9636 and Midiman 4x4 for connecting it to a midex8 in the main dual computer. I hope that it works with enough performance (should be better installing winxp on giga puter )
Running Giga on one computer is better.The system you are thinking of building should be fine. I do believe SCSI drives will have a better chance at running 160 jsut because access time and RPM speeed is so fast on SCSI. Those are the main issues regarding Poly count and Drive Performance.
I\'m wondering what soundchaser want to say with their Giga systems:
\"Available in custom multi-CPU configurations for up to 1280 voices of polyphony controlled by a single keyboard, mouse and monitor. The NCStudio is ideal for composers, video houses, or recording studios. \"
1280 voicess???????? how???? in just one machine??? is it possible to build a system that gives more than 160 voices?
Kingidiot: Do you think that is there a lot of differences between SCSI and new IBM 7.200rpm ATA100 HD?
I would think so about SCSI. The access times on SCSI are WAY faster than the faster UTA100 drives I\'ve seen. While the 2 WD 7200s I have in my Giga machine work great. I dont get 160 on this machine without hiccups. I think its drive related
I run 3 ata100 7200 seagate drives in my machine..
2 of em are through a raid card(PCI)... So 2 drives play happliy along easily at, give or take 160 poly.
Cheep setup too.. Pushin 100 gig\'s internal..
