I\'ve been fighting with my Giga systems for the last two weeks, and I think I found the common denominator - Upgrading Direct X 9 through Windows update.
After running the update, GigaStudio no longer output audio or recognized MIDI, even using the mouse on the keyboard in GS. These two things are necessities for a well running GS! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
First, I tried removing all of the GS elements according to the Tascam directions, and then reinstalled. Nothing.
Then I did a clean install onto a new hard drive of XP, ran all the updates, and then installed GS. Same thing.
Then I put together a new computer, installed XP, then paused as I was adding updates, and remember the last things to add to the first computer. DirectX 9, which you can\'t uninstall. [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
I updated everything except for DirectX 9, and bam! A finely tuned 160 voice GS machine.
Anyone else run into this? I lost a lot of time going through this, and just want to give people a head\'s up on it. I know most people run clean GS machines, but I\'m one of the lucky (crazy?) people that can run everything from one system (Sonar, tons of plugins, Sound Forge, Vegas, Internet, etc) and *usually* I like to update XP for security reasons.
