    Question Question about "G-Player" and GigaStudio Files

    Okay... it has taken a very long time for me to wake up and see the light, but I have finally made the switch to Mac, after being plagued for SO MANY years with problems with Windows.

    My big question now is... how is SoundLib's G-Player when it comes to playing GigaStudio sound files? I have a tremendous arsenal of GigaStudio sample discs, and it seems a waste to just let them sit on the shelf (since GigaStudio is not useable on a Mac)

    Anybody been using SoundLib's G-Player to run their Giga files? Does it work well, and does it come anywhere close to what "GigaStudio" was (before Tascam decided to discontinue it)

    Thanks in advance for the help.... Gary Thomas

    you are still one step ahead of me<G>... I've abandoned GigaStudio, bit not (yet) the PC.

    There is a cross-platform sample player called the LinuxSampler. They had a huge update yesterday, and I have not yet downloaded it, but the previous version was working pretty well for me. It is NOT Gigastudio yet, but for a young project it's pretty darned good.

    absolutely worth a look!

    Contacted Soundlib yesterday and the reply was that the Windows version of the G-Player is in beta testing, will be available shortly.
