You'll need 3 or 4 GB RAM of course to make use of it and a host that is large address aware. You should then be able to load 2.5GB of samples or so, depending on what else is running. I haven't tested it with GVI standalone, but I would imagine that it is large address aware.
Note that if you're running Gigastudio on this machine it will mess with it in a bad way. (no personal experience but this is a known issue)
I agree 64bits. My iPhone technique needs a little work w/ spell checking, along w/ my eyesight.
Your Westgate tips and Vintaudio tips are still very much appreciated.
Brotha' Man Fizbin,
Your tips are saving me the pain of an unecessary upgrade. I will be upgrading late December, but only a cheap fast solution for getting the most out of my loads.
Instead of an x38, blah,blah, blah. A DFI Blood Iron / E6850. w/ 4GB's of CL3 DDRII RAM is all I need. I will get a good 2 years out of that and hopefully Creamware ( Soniccore ) will have drivers and hardware by then. If not, this DAWg will still hunt.
I am a happy camper. But as far as the iPhone goes, that dog don't hunt. It is painfully slow when travelling, AT&T has the record for dropouts, the list is long. It's superfast GUI is of no consequence once you're in a low signal area, and the 57 second wait for a web page to load is so painfully slow. Wait for iPhone 2. If I would have applied my Intel upgrade experiences to my cell phone purchasing............................I could have been a contender.
