    GS4 stopped working, ugh

    Out of nowhere GS4 stopped spitting out audio and stopped receiving MIDI. Vienna Ensemble on the same computer is working fine using the same hardware. Even playing the keyboard inside of gs4 produces no visible audio within the program when an instrument is loaded. was working great for a while but removing and reinstalling now. Any thoughts welcome. thanks

    at a loss...just when I thought all was well...damn. I tell you, nothing has been as stable as my original Win98 GS 2.5 system. bummer.

    Some other observations:

    Every now and then in GS4 hardware it says I have a multiface. I have to restart Giga to fix this. Een when it says "digiface" it lists the types of outputs as "analog" instead of "digital". But the number of outputs is correct.

    sounds to me like old or wrong drivers for your sound card... i dunno what to tell you, I have done the 2.5 and 3.0 thing and never have i had a better experience with GS than I have now with 4.0

    Have you run the Giga Configuration Manager from the start menu? Does it list a soundcard?

    It looks like a driver issue. If re-installing GS4 doesn't work, try re-installing your soundcard driver and re-running the config manager.

    Best of luck.

    I tried both of these things. It does list the digiface in the configuration manager. "External MIDI" is flashing next to where the MIDI port activity lights are at the bottom of the screen in GS4. What does this mean? I noticed that it does not do this in GS3.

    thanks-

    So I loaded GS4 with "no external components" under troubleshoot and that seems to have fixed it. What was going on?

    Is there any chance you have exceeded the 10 active midi device driver entries in Windows XP?

    GS4.......

    Another piece of you know what release from a company that makes a windows based program that doesn't like windows.

    Go figure.

    I switched to kontakt.

    Sorry. I'm just tired of Giga, it will never end.
    GVI on the other hand, great. But not the same, I know.

    That's hard to disagree with since GS4 won't work on my 3 machines and Kontakt works on all of them.
