My Steinway Professional came yesterday. I can't stop playing it. I did a shoot out with all my other sampled pianos (don't have Ivory, though) and was just floored by the beauty of the sound. The Aria interface is wonderful. And on top of all that, the decision to make the manual look as well crafted as a Steinway was genious. Gary, thank you for your vision.
I have one technical question. Because I have a super fast Intel Quad Core (Intel Core 2 Extreme QX9650), I figured I could install the 24-bit samples w/ no problem. However, now that I've done that, I can't play without crackles unless I increase my latency from 2.2ms to 5.8ms. I know this is a hella plug-in, but I have some real resource pigs and none of the rest of them do that.
My question is, would it make that much difference if I reinstalled with 16-bit to the point I get my latency back to where it was? I'm thinking it wouldn't, but wondered if any fellow nerds might know.
I'll just sit here and play my Steinway until someone can get back to me. Thanks for all help.
