I guess I'm the latest newbie on the site, and unfortunately, like most newbies, at this point in time I can only contribute questions and not answers.
Last week I purchased Gigastudio 3 Solo since I felt that it was time to upgrade from Soundfonts. My basic system is an adequate PC (2 hard drives, 512 RAM) on which I'm running Cubase SX (early version). My "soundcard" is a Tascam US224.
I've got GS3 registered and loaded without a hitch (as far as I can tell) and am using it as a slave to Cubase. Here is my issue: I have no trouble recording midi tracks in Cubase with gigastudio samples, playback sounds fantastic. However, when I attempt to render the midi files to wav files (export audio) in Cubase they work but any and all sustained notes begin but are then abrubtly cut short (example: cymbals, trumpet etc.). I have searched through the manual and many posts on this forum but have not found a solution.
Incidentally, in the past when I use soundfonts or VST instruments using various samples, I have no problems rendering from midi to wav. The resulting audio file sounds just like the midi.
My gut tells me that I'm probably missing something simple but I just don't see the solution. As it stands, the system is tormenting me since the samples included with GS3 sound soooo much better than soundfonts, but I can't really apply them! Anyone out there kind enough to offer advice?
Thanks in advance. The forum has a friendly and helpful vibe and hopefully (with experience) I'll be able to reciprocate with advice in the future.
