I haven\'t had much luck running the two apps on the same system. I do have dedicated Harddrives for Cubase audio, Gigsamples, and OS and apps. all SCSI, a P3 600 and 256 MB. EWS88MT for GigaStudio and Sonorus for Cubase audio. When disabling the audio engine in Cubase, everything works fine (plein Midi sequencing), but I can\'t do more than 30 notes polyphony on Giga while recording audio in Cubase. It is stongly related to the windows file caching system, and how the 2 programs deal with it. GS works best with min/maxfilecaching set to 0, while Cubase works best with min/maxfile = RAM size. You will have to find the best compromise for the 2 programs.
I played around with these settings a lot and finally decided to run Gigastudio on a dedicated machine.
There\'s no reason at all that you shouldn\'t be able to run both. Anything faster than a P600 will run both. What\'s important is that you have either a) a multiclient soundcard that will allow you to use a pair of outs for VST and a pair for Gigastudio or b) two soundcards, and dedicate one to each program
I had used EWS88MT GSIF dedicated to GS
and Sonorus StudI/O ASIO2 for Cubase VST.
I had also tried vice versa with no improvement. I have also tried to give GS 2 outs and Cubase 2 outs of either one card, as they are supposedly multiclient drivers.
\"Running sweet as a nut\", does that mean you can record and play back audio from Cubase and at the same time play Gigasamples with at least 60 notes polyphony?
If so, could you give me your relevant settings and system specs. (RAM,system.ini file caching, outputs dedicated to Cubase and to GS, HD cluster size, etc.)
Your input is highly appreciated.
