Hi, I’ve had this problem before with Gigastudio 3 but I’m now using GVI as a plug-in through Sonar on a laptop and it’s becoming a lot more prevalent, so I was hoping one of you smart folks out there may know what the deal is.
About half of the gig files that I place in midi channels in GVI are getting switched out and replaced by a gig file from another channel once I hit play. For instance, I’ll have gigapiano in channel one and a bass guitar in channel two, and when I hit play, the bass guitar will instantly change to gigapiano. The only way I can seem to get bass guitar to “stick” so to speak is to unload gigapiano completely, load the bass guitar and then reload gigapiano. Then it sticks for a bit, and then later starts switching out again.
Another issue I’m having that seems to be related, is that some of the gig files that I load won’t play, as in they don’t seem to be accepting midi messages. If you hit a key on the virtual keyboard or try to play a midi track to it, the yellow light to the right of the file name that indicates that the channel is receiving midi data won’t even light up. The reason why I think this might be related to the other problem is that this sometimes happens to a file that previously played fine, but then got “switched out” and I tried to force it to stick using the process I mentioned above, but instead of getting switched out, it now no longer receives midi signals. Other times, the files just won’t receive midi signals from the get go.
