I know this is little off topic, but should I sell my E4 Platinum and a slew of E-mu Libraries for a GigaStudio setup. Any opinions would be great. Trade-offs eg. latency, E-mu format converting to Giga, etc. . .
* Are you happy devoting a mid range PC to the sampler (don\'t think you\'ll be easily sampling, sequencing, audio tracking and running video on a single PC - giga is pretty greedy)
* Apart from some kind of reasonable soundcard, are you happy to buy a midi interface with four ports in order to take full advantage of Giga\'s 64 channel capability.
* If you already have the E4 FX expansion board, have you compared the quality of the NFX for Giga?
Personally, I didn\'t need to ask ALL those questions. I got to about the second one and figured I was so tired of the ram limit and low polyphony that I was willing to make a few concessions to kiss it goodbye. So far I\'m happy with my choice, and the options keep getting better. Can\'t wait \'til I have the bucks for GOS
Chadwick you\'re a pretty resourceful guy, I think I\'m going to get rid of my E4 and opt for PC dedicated to Giga, saying as though It\'ll be a fair trade. Do you have any Idea if Giga will convert EOS formatted CD-Roms? Thanks for the advice, you basically helped me make up my confused mind.
