Hi guys I have recently been interested in buying GVI to use in Vista on a laptop. However even after reading up on the subject I am having problems with a few 'newbie' questions.
Would GVI come with a standalone sampler player? The main purpose would be to use the laptop in live situations and only playing up to two instruments simultaeneously on a midi keyboard. I hear it is a plug in and I am not sure if just having GVI on its own with no other software will allow me to do what I want to do above.
Also my other thoughts were what hardware I would need for this laptop. The basic spec of it is ok but the hard drive is (I think) 5400rpm and the soundcard is some sort of 16 bit on board standard trash. I know from researching Gigastudio (which I was going to buy but discovered wont work on Vista) that I would have needed a 7200 rpm Hard drive and a GSIF compatible soundcard. I am not sure what would be required for GVI, especially with my lower requirements due to only 2 instruments being used at once.
The laptops basic specs are:
Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor T2310
(1.46 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 1 MB Cache)
Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium
2 GB Memory Size
120 GB Hard Drive
Any advice or thoughts would be much appreciated by this novice.
