Just read this on Bitheadz\'s website, makers of Unity. Their upcoming version 3.0 will add a host of new features, and most importantly for us mac folk, this:
\'Will offer support for the GigaSampler file format!
Coupled with its \"Play from Disk\" feature, all of you Mac-based Giga users who resigned yourself to a PC can now return to your Mac and bring your GigaSampler formatted samples with you.\'
Ofcourse the real test is whether it can playback something like GOS, and whether it will support the full range of gig features (unlike Halion) but for now, this is very exciting news.
It apparently will also run under MacOs X,
which with it\'s professional quality low latency audio api should give a great performance!
I\'ve used the Mac since 1986 and now run Pro Tools on it and only use the PC for Giga.
But I like having the PC run Giga. I like be able to run both Macs and PCs and my PC hasn\'t bombed once...knock on wood...since I got it about 5 months ago. A lot more stable than my beloved Mac so far.
Being conversant on both platforms gives me a good feeling. I avoided the PC for years but now that I\'m \"forced\" to use it to run Giga I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get up and running. It\'s no big deal. They are just tools.
