    Speaking of GM-500,has anyone here tried to creat their own Gen Midi Performance ?

    Im getting ready to build my own Gen Midi performance bank.Using some of my favurate sounds like the Bosendorf Piano and AO strings ect. Just wondering if anyone else has created a Gen midi performance bank with their favurate sounds and how much ram did you need in your computer to achieve this?

    Hi!
    I didn\'t try to create anything like that, but hearing you mention AO strings I can give you example. I do orchestral arrangements and for that I need to load basically the whole SO at once. When I used to have 96 MB RAM, I could just load 5 to 6 solo instruments like oboe, bassoon trumpet etc and than my computer would get stuck loading the next instrument. Separately, I wouldn\'t manage even the third strings (i.e. cellos after violins and violas). Now, with 224 MB it is much better but late romantic composers are still beyond my possibilities. Basically I can load the complete strings, together with some 8 solo instruments with ca 75% Memory used. No piano! No harp!
    Needless to say that I am using the crossfaded (XFD) versions which take twice as much memory, so with the normal samples you might be better off.

    Good luck!

    Seems like Alexander Uni\'s 768 meg of ram isn\'t such a silly idea, given that it\'s the range of options available at the change of a patch that\'s maxing out the machine, rather than number of notes in the arrangement at any given time.
