I received my GigaStudio upgrade today, and I thought it was the most disgusting upgrade package I have ever received from any company is the last eight years.
There is NO MANUAL -- not even a .PDF format copy of one. Only a stupid Help file straight out of the Stone Ages that takes hundreds of sheets of paper to print out, tons of ink and several days of work.
Furthermore, HERE THIS SBLIVE OWNERS: There is NO SoundFont conversion utility in the package!!!!! That was one of two major features that I based my decision on when I bought the damn thing.
A couple of things you might want to do to make your experience a little better.
2. Look on the CD-ROM there is a electronic copy of the \'Getting Started ...\' manual.
3. To convert a sound font file, you simply open the file with the editor - no more. You can then save it out as a .gig file, download it, edit it until you are blue in the face.
4. It sound like your mail tool may have mangled the NFX4.exe attachment. Please give our tech support line a call and let see if we can get you the free plugin another way.
If you can get your effects working, a lot of us SBlive users would like your opinion on the NFX4 effects v.s. live effects (especially live verb, which I think is compatative with the very best out there).
