I\'m about to purchase Garritan Orchestral strings with the GigaStudio 160 bundle, but I\'m a little confused about what kind of MIDI interface I will need. If GigaStudio supports 160 channels, am I going to be handicapping myself by purchasing a 32-channel MIDI interface (the interface will only be used to go between my MIDI controller and my CPU)? I don\'t have very deep pockets right now so I don\'t want to spend more on a MIDI interface than absolutely necessary.
The Edirol (Roland) UM series USB adapters have very low latency when you use their special USB drivers. They are also plug\'n\'play and appear as a standard USB MIDI device if you don\'t load the drivers.
