    First song (excerpt) using only GS4-bundled sounds and GS4 effects.

    Hey everybody:

    After several months of virtually no time for musicmaking, I've finally started to get back on track.

    Most recently, as a kind of side project, I've been working on a number of songs — of various styles/genres — created using only the "free" instruments bundled with GS4, and processing the sounds using only GigaPulse and the other (NFX) effects native to GS4, as well as basic CC data (expression, modwheel, pitch wheel, etc.) editing in Cubase.

    These pieces, I think, stand nicely on their own as songs... but they also show what can be done using nothing more than what comes out of the GS4 box (and, of course, one's DAW/sequencer app).

    From time to time, I'll post some examples... here's the first one:

    It's a luscious throwback to the Deutschrock / kosmichemusik of the early '70s... summoning a dazed a luminous world populated by the ghosts of Popol Vuh and Amon Düül 2...

    Hope you like...

    Re: First song (excerpt) using only GS4-bundled sounds and GS4 effects.

    Was there any sounds bundled in GS4 that weren't in GS3?

    Does GS4 load any drivers in Windows startup like GS2 and GS3 does?

    I'm still using XP 32 bit and will stick with it until MS puts out something better so I can't really take advantage of what GS4 offers.

    But having GS operate with a dongle makes it tempting since I can try it on my other machines. I ay take advantage of Sweetwater's no interest deal and get it.

    Yes. For example, instead of the VSL instruments that came with GS3, there's a ton of SONiVOX instruments.

    The entire list of bundled content is at http://tascamgiga.com/products/gigas...7,1055,19.html

    Sure. That's part of how Giga works.

    Enhanced stability... a standalone QuickSound application... the ability to audition instruments from within the browse window... the ability to load/stack VST instruments and effects... they're all just fine by me in XP32.

    For some, I suspect that the dongle, without more, will justify the expense...

    Thanks for all the info. Excellent demo for using the bundled sounds.
