    Should I remove GS on GVI machine?

    I am about to receive the GVI soon and I cannot wait to get my hands on it.
    However should I remove my old GS2.5 when I have already had GVI installed or let the older brother stays there (I'm afraid it will get jealous someday..)?

    You will have to remove 2.5. GVI actually removes it for you when you install it.

    GS3 and GVI co-habitate peacefully on my machine...

    In fact, to be clear... I have used GS3 and GVI simultaneously in the same song, on the same machine...

    I just got the GVI & tried it right away....and I have to say that this software is awesome.
    I am happy with the purchase, even the GUI looks a lot nicer than the GS2.5
    However, does anyone know if I the GVI reads GS2.5 data files?

    Yes, GVI and GS3 both playback GS2.5 files. No problemo.

    GVI opens .gig files and .gsi files, but not .gsp files.

    Yes, that's the first thing I noticed. You can change "file of type" to "all files", and you can open .gsp files but..BIG warning: if Gigapulse was used, you get a warning, and hitting "Ignore" results in a nice crash with the "do you want to tell Microsoft...yada, yada, yada..". At least that's what I'm getting.

    I suppose you could open G3, remove Gigapulse, and save the .gsp. Then open in GVI (using the "all files" selection). Then, in GVI, save them as a GVI preset.

    I do wish a future update would make using .gsp files a little more convenient, particularly those using Gigapulse. I've got countless .gsp files, and I find myself using GVI much more frequently than G3. Just making the "ignore" button work would help tremendously.

    The thing is that .gsp files include however many number of MIDI ports worth of information present when the .gsp was saved. GVI only represents one MIDI port. Also, .gsp files contain DSP Station mixer info, not present in GVI because GVI routes into the DAW.

    What you could do, with Giga 3, is save save off a bunch of .gsi files, that do open correctly in GVI.
