I hope this is the right forum for such a question:
Gigastudio isn't stable on my new Vista machine so i'm looking for another sampler that natively reads giga. What would everybody recommend? Machfive II, Samplelord, Linuxsampler or others? Which one are you using? Thanks for any recommendations
Wait a moment.
You mean, I could in near future have a PC with "normal dimensions" regarding mobo and processor with linux on it and lots of RAM ...
... and load that to the rim with Giga libraries and maybe converted Kontakt libs? And use that as a Giga slave with several hundreds of loaded patches?
(I came a little too late to samples for being a Giga user but this sounds good).
Yep. That's what some are already doing.
There's also work going on implementing the SFZ v.2 format so that it will be possible to convert Kontakt libs more successfully. And hopefully when JACK2 is stable and released on all platforms it will be simple to send audio and MIDI over your LAN.
(There is also a VSTi and AU plugin of LinuxSampler in beta.)
PS. Love your new Strings-on-demand site by the way. :-D
