    RAID 0 arrays

    This from the TASCAM website: Although it doesn't say what type of array to setup. I use raid 0 for the instruments; with backup on another drive.
    "
    How about the ultimate GS3 system? What if I want to get crazy polyphony and multiple GigaPulse instances?
    The limiting factor for polyphony is hard drive speed, so you'll get the best performance with a RAID array for your drives. The below system was tested with over 600 voices of polyphony (using 16-bit samples), of course your mileage may vary.
    • Windows XP SP1
    • P4 3GHz or faster
    • 2GB RAM
    • DVD-ROM drive
    • 1024 x 768 monitor resolution
    • Two-drive RAID using 10,000 RPM SATA drives
    • MIDI interface
    • GSIF 2-compatible sound card or ReWire-compatible host application top

    Very nice...

    By reading your specs is Sp1 recommended? I guess the ram issue is no longer with the 2 gig....I was sticking to one (old info I guess)

    Have you tried the SATA II drives? They are wicked fast on my Sonar machine with GVI on it.

    Re: RAID 0 arrays

    I have the WD raptors in one PC; they were very expensive; however; in the newer PC I decided to try ordinary SATA 7200 rpm drives in a raid o arry and they work just fine. A lot cheaper too!

    No I have not tried SATA II drives.

    this is my website showing my organ project:
