I currently use GS2.5 for playing piano libraries (my current favourite is the Black Grand) and am wanting to upgrade my Sampler and PC, but can't decide between GS3 and Kontakt.
I'm wondering if anyone who has used both for piano can give me an idea of their relative strengths. I'm particularly interested in latency, and whether people really notice GSIF2 being better than ASIO(2?) in this regard.
I like the sound of the Kontakt Sympathetic Resonance Scripts but wonder how much pressure they put on your CPU.
And looking to the future (I know, pure speculation) - is GS4 likely to have scripting potential similar to kontakt? And will the upcoming Garritan Steinway will have it's own player, be multi-platform, or require Kontakt like the Stadivari?
