    Sound stuttering/choking with very large Giga piano library in GVI

    QUESTION: What can I do so that I can play many notes and have very low latency without the system choking?

    I just purchased a piano library and the files are 12 gig in size. I have not had
    this problem until I started using the large library.

    My system is choking when I play many notes, especially when I try
    to set the latency to around 6ms so the piano becomes playable.

    Is it more likely the hard drive(s) or sound card that is stuttering?



    ( If a drive problem, is it possible to separate the associated files .gig .gx01 .... .gx06 to different drives? )




    Details:

    The files are of extension .gig .gx01 .... .gx06

    The library is on a separate drive than the operating system.

    Intel Du0 2.5gig processor

    4gig ram

    Cubase 3 SX

    Asio Driver: Asio4All ( buffer size 300 - 500 samples for latency of around 6ms )

    I played around with a couple things that have seemed to help.

    1) I switched from asio4all driver to the Focusrite Saffire driver ( using Cubase )

    2) I was able to set buffer length down to a very small size giving
    me faster piano key response.

    3) Reduced voice polyphony in GVI to limit at 32 notes. This is a big compromise.


    I'd rather have many more voices, 64 or 96 as they are needed for the pedaled piano parts .

    I also so a primer on setting up a system for virtual pianos.

    I'm VERY interested to hear other's input as well

    thank you for reading and for your ideas
