    gs4 quicksound not working

    Hi, I have just upgraded to gs4 from 3 and the quicksound library does not find all my folders after rebuilding all the library. It seems to vary each time I do it . I have tried local and recursive modes but no difference.Any ideas?

    Re: gs4 quicksound not working

    Did you use Quick Sound to "Upgrade to GS4 format" globally? If you did you are going to have to reload all your library files. 4.01 took out that "feature" which was a global convert function accidentally left from GS3. The only thing to do (as per Tascam support) is to completely load from scratch all your samples as they are now effectively corrupt

    no, but I did convert some sounds to gs4 format which then didnt load , so Tascam sent me a fix which works and I can load all the sounds no prob but quicksound doesnt see some and does others . No way of reloading everything too long too many.
    Any other thoughts?

    Haven't tried this myself, but bottom of p. 208, GS4 Manual (pdf download), states correction for "hopelessly confused" QuickSound data base. Not clear whether stated fix applies equally for 32-/64-bit Windows OS's.

    That kind of raises a red flag about testing the product enough before releasing it.

    It says
    If QuickSound is crashing or hopelessly confused, open "C:\Program Files\Tascam\GStudio\bin" and delete
    everything in the folder. Launch QuickSound again and rebuild your database from scratch.

    Trouble is there is no such folder !!!!!!

    Any other ideas

    Check your folder options->"view"->"hidden files and folders"

    Maybe this folder is hidden.
