I have just purchased the Peter Siedlaczek Avanced Orchestra set in Gigasampler format, to use on my EXS24MkII software sampler that runs under Logic Audio Platinum V5.5 as a plug-in. The EXS24MkII offers a \"giga convert\" function that runs from Mac OS X.
(I also could have chosen the akai version, which converts via OS9, but, wanting to avoid the hassle of working with OS9, didn\'t (DOH!!)
When I copied the files from the CDs to the \"sampler instruments\" folder as discussed in both the EXS24 & AO literature, approx. 2/3 of the sounds did not appear on the EXS24 menu. (Even after hitting \"refresh menu\")
Delving, I found that these .gigs were sitting in this directory, but that Logic did not recognise them for conversion.
I have contacted Emagic support to the highest level for Mac OSX in Australia and they suggest there is no problem as he has converted \"Vienna Strings\" without a hitch.
Has anyone out there experienced this problem?
My system is G4 twin 1gHz, 1024Mb RAM, 120Gb superdrive, Logic Audio Platinum 5.5, Motu 828.
PS: I bought this from EASTWEST over the net & it was delivered to us (adjacent to Antarctica) in 4 days - not bad....
