    Question gigasampler & xp?

    Hi; I've aqquired an unused, unregistered copy of gigasampler le; does it work on xp? or do I have to install 98 to get it to work? And if so, is it worth the effort, given that giga3 is on sale from U.S. for £106 ($216)+ P&P(£20) +_ vat on eBay? (is that too good to be true? It costs around £350/$700 in UK). Even if I end up buying a new version I thought gigasampler might give me a taster, or maybe I only have to pay for an upgrade.
    thanks.

    Giga works fine on XP. In fact I would stay far away from Vista and older O/S like Win98.

    I'm not sure about the LE version, never used it, I have the full Orchestra 3 version and it's superb.

    Gigasampler LE is ancient. It only runs on W98SE.

    I'd recommend looking for a good deal on GS3 or GVI instead - or at least the previous generation GS160. GigaLE is 2 generations old, and GS4 is already said to be nearing completion.

    Hi,
    Just reading thorough and was wondering if upgrading to Service Pack 2
    would be a problem on Giga 3?

    Have you ever tried converting Giga Files to K2 and what happens?
    I find it really doesn't work.

    I upgraded my GS3 machine to SP2 without any problems.
