Iam a Vsampler user and I am looking into the PMI group buy which is ending this week.
I am definitely interested in the Old Lady Steinway, and maybe in the Emperor Bosendorfer which can purchased as a bundle with the Old Lady.
They both come in Halion 24 bit format. The Old Lady is available in Giga2 16 bit, but the Emperor is available only in Giga3 24 bit format.
I would like to know for sure if Vsampler supports Halion 24 bit format. I downloaded the Halion 24bit/48khz playable demos of both libraries(1 octave and all Cs). It is a bit hard to say frome such a small collection of notes. The Old Lady sounds very good. The Emperor, however makes funny clicks and crackles on certain notes.
I also wander if this has to do with the srenght of my system, P4, 2.5Ghz, 1gig RAM.
Any help appreciated, thanks
