Hi all - this is my first post here and I hope you can help me.
What has experience been with the combination of SONAR HomeStudio6/XL & GPO?
I ask because I have SONAR HS6/XL installed and have GPO on order ,but am currrently using Dimension LE and the Garritan sounds available with it.
I experience dropouts - see my post at http://forum.cakewalk.com/tm.asp?m=1262042
It may well be that my system is not powerful enough but I not fully convinced that this is the whole story.
My question to this forum is therefore what PC specs are being used with SONAR HomeStudio6/XL & GPO and with what sort of success?
I would be very gratefull for any info as this will guide me to a decision on what system to upgrade to.
I am not concerned about mid input as I only use staff/piano roll input or export
from my ancient PersonalComposer (16bit version 1!) notation programme.
My current system is:
Dell Dimension 4400, Pentium 4/1.6Ghz,512+256MB ram (another 512Mb module on order
to bring it up to 1GB - the max possible)
80GB system disk - about 40Gb free. Second internal 80Gb disk used as backup. 320GB
Sound card : Turtle Beach Aureal Audio 8660 - using MME (WDM doesn't seem to work -
looking for WDM driver updates)
Windows XP/SP2 + auto-updates
