    Your advice is appreciated!!

    I recently bought a Sony laptop which has Vista (Home 32-bit). I want to use the Sony as my slave computer to my Mac.
    I'm trying to decide should I do the following:

    1. downgrade to Windows XP so I can use Gigastudio 3 (which I currently own)

    2. upgrade Gigastudio 3 to 4 (if I can find it) to run on Vista.

    3. try to find GVI 3 which runs on Vista ( I don't do much sample editing)

    4. Abandon Giga completely and go with another sampler which imports Giga samples
    ACCURATELY. I currently have Kontakt 3 on my Mac. It imports Giga fairly well, but I still hear a difference between that and Gigastudio.

    ** My main goal is to have a stable program which plays back Giga samples accurately, and efficiently on the CPU. Any advice is welcome. I'm very confused!

    Thanks,

    Tom

    Get rid of Vista and go back to WinXp, it's a better OS for music.
    As far as your Giga situation, well, use version 3 I would say.
    If you really want GVI it's still available, obviously it will allow more samples to load than Giga 3.

    Really, it's just a waste to get version 4 for Vista.

    Chalfant:

    Thanks for your reply. I picked up GVI from Guitar Center for $79.95.
    I figured that's cheap enough, so I couldn't pass it up. I'm also trying to get Windows XP.

    You can't go wrong for that price can ya!? Nice one.
    I would really suggest XP 32 and if possible get 4 gigs ram.
    Not sure on your knowledge level but as a computer builder I can help if need be.
    Cheers,
