Here are a few responses (not mine, but they were made by someone at TASCAM who would know) to a number of questions regarding GS4... copied verbatim from "elsewhere":
XP or Vista, 32 or 64-bit. I think that's clear from our marketing.1. the specs as best you got them (XP64 - yes or no)
I've run VI in Giga and it works great. I haven't tried Kontakt yet, I've been slammed with NAMM prep.2. how GS4 deals with different streaming methods in one program when hosting other VSTs
The sampler engine is still at the Kernel level, but we've moved other components out of that level (like Quicksound) which improves stability without compromising performance.3. Is it still written at the kernel level?
Hell yeah. It'll support 128GB of RAM if you can find a motherboard and a bank loan.4. Can GS4 operate with 8GB of RAM?
There's no "bit bridge" in GS4, so 32-bit plug-ins are disabled in the 64-bit version. That's on our wish list, but as of version 4.00 they are not supported.5. Since NI doesn't operate with 8GB of RAM, how does that effect the performance in a higher RAM situation?
There's a manual (being worked on by Craig Anderton as we speak), email and phone support.6. What's the customer support? manual? forum? both?
