    VSL (200 Gigs+) How many machines

    Hi all,

    With 200 gigs plus of samples out of VSL, how does one actually run this huge if not the larget library out there?

    How many Machines?
    Sequencing software?
    CPU speed?
    RAM or RDRAM
    HD\'s?

    Just curious..

    Share what you know..

    Very carefully!


    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!


    Sorry!


    Well, here\'s the deal, you don\'t really need to load up 200 gigs of stuff all at the same time unless you\'re doing some really bizarre balls to the wall orchestral extravaganza (and even then you could bounce some tracks).

    The whole library is 200gigs but realistically speaking, you\'ll only use about 60 or so in your sequences. The limiting factor in Giga is really the polyphony which requires you to have several computers running together.

    I am sure that you could get satisfactory results with just one PC loaded with about a gig of RAM and a reasonably fast hard drive. With 2 PC\'s you would double your polyphony and have access to twice the instruments at the same time.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">On our Truespec Giga Systems for VSL,
    http://www.truespec.com/computersystems/gigastudio/index.shtml

    we normally suggest, if the person is planning for the Pro Edition, to plan for two systems, in which we create a raid drive of 400GB. With the library divided over two systems, that leaves plenty of expansion room for the VSL Symphonic 1 and Symphonic 2 cubes.

    We have a free guide on planning a Giga system, so if you\'d like it, just e-mail me at:

    peter@truespec.com and I\'ll send it over to you.

    Nearly all the questions you posed are answered at the site and in our Street Smart Guide.
