Seriously, though, so many sample libraries are now producing (directly or via third parties) K2 multi/scripting enhancements, but (other than old-school VSL, with its Performance Tool) I can't think of a single library boasting comparable Giga-oriented capabilities [pointers welcomed!!].
I am full-on hoping that:
(i) the currently-being-revamped TASCAM Giga tech support offerings (including but not limited to the soon-to-be-online learngigastudio.com website) will expose more users to the potentials of iMIDI scripting, custom .gsi/.gsp creation and the like, and generate additional interest in these capabilities on the part of Giga-users (resulting in additional pressure on developers to take full advantage of these capabilities); andMe, I'm with Giga for the long haul -- prior library purchases have ensured that. Giga-friendliness is something that I am required to consider when choosing between comparable sample libraries...
(ii) more developers will take similar advantage of Giga's extended capabilities, even if it means anticipating consumer outcry... it seems to me that catering to only one segment of the customer base (viz., K2 users) doesn't make tremendous business sense... or, at least, won't make tremendous business sense if K2's popularity someday wanes, or if Giga4 or GVI brings new life to the old guard...
Anyway, the demos sound great -- the Gunslinger materials, in particular, sound quite tasty. I hope that there is room for me, and those like me, in the Bela D long-term bizniz strategy...
