    GigaStudio v2.5

    Any advantage in upgrading to this version if I am not using 2000 or XP?

    Using GS Ver2.2 with windowsME.

    As always...Thank you

    Just grabbed this info from the tascam forum site:

    CustSer@teac.com says :

    \"Here are the changes:


    This build supports Windows 95/98/ME/2000/Xp


    Added options in the Preferences to control whether region properties
    are updated after editing or replacing a sample. Turning these off avoids
    the problem of destroying unity note information after an edit.

    Reduced \"unmapped region\" messages to a single warning on close
    (remembering that unmapped regions aren\'t compatible with the 1.0 engine).

    User Interface

    Multimonitor support / Window Size & Position preserved between sessions.

    Native File (.gig, .wav, ...) Import from CDRom supported.
    Bug Fixes:

    Loading multiple instruments with the same bank and patch would
    would show up in the sample with identical bank/patch. This would
    happen with instruments with the \'Drums\' box checked in the editor.

    Scarbee\'s J-String bass would pop at the end of some samples if the
    notes were held. This was a disk engine issue and has been fixed.

    Editor - Fixed \"apply\" problems in the property pages (unity note, crossfade
    Editor - Fixed two different glitches dragging in the blue ball window
    Editor - Fixed a problem in instruments created by the Combine feature - files were legal to the sampler but could display missing dimensions in the editor.

    MSGSRV32 crash at boot up time (Windows 9x/ME only). This was
    a system dependent problem that happened more reguarly on faster
    systems. In some cases, you could hit the ignore button a couple of
    times to get into Windows, other times required a safe mode boot.
    v2.5 has fixed this problem.

    Hmm....when I try to install it is says this particular install of 2.5 was not designed to work with win98.

    Hi Donnie,

    I read on the Nemesys Yahoo list that 2.5 comes as a patch (\"difference\") file for Win98 users and as a full install for XP. I haven\'t checked this myself, I\'m just passing on this remark.

    So, maybe you tried to install the XP version.

    OT: last week I sent you some questions about the LOP upgrade to \"info\" and \"donnie\" @dssoundware.com. Can you check my questions?

    With Ver2.2 I can run 160 with no pops nor crackles and all under W98SE, but with the same machine running Ver2.5 under I couldn\'t go past 100. All the exceeding notes messed up with the existing ones. That\'s why I haven\'t install Ver2.5 for W98 yet.

    I also run Ver2.5 on another PC, W2K SP2, Dual-CPU P3-1G, 2G RAM, fast HD and I also couldn\'t go past 100. Looking at that specification, I don\'t think it\'s a not-good-enough-hardware problem.

    So, keep your W98 and Ver2.2 if you don\'t have any problem with it.
