Just got symphony of voices in the mail today.
I got ready to install, and to my suprise, none of the cd\'s are recognized by my cpu. PLEASE tell me that I just didn\'t spend $500 on something that doesn\'t work in Windows. I\'ll just cry! I\'m running XP, 1.8ghz, 1g ram. ROM drives work fine with any cd but these 5. Help? Advice?
Well, first let me preface this by saying I use a mac, and know very little about PC\'s.
I noticed on Spectrosonics website that SOV is only available in Akai/Emu or Roland formats. Is that what you have?
For my mac to recognize one of those formats, I have to have my software sampler (ESX)open to the Akai import page, so it\'s looking for CD-ROMS in that format. Otherwise I\'m told the disk is unrecognizable.
Or you\'ll need to use CDXtract or Chicken Systems to convert to the format of your choice.
Is that perhaps what is going on?
Or perhaps you\'ve already been in touch with Spectrosonics. If I had just spent 500 dollars, I certainly would have wanted to get it figured out...fast!
Before you give up,
Giga should recognize Akai format.
If you open the cd through Giga (under local sampler) and load it onto your hard drive I do believe it will automaticaly translate it for you using the SConverter.
I went through this when I bought Advanced Orchestra and was stumped for a little bit. It has been some time but I remember this not bieng to hard.
Let us know if you have any problems.
Those who have CDXtract. How does your PC \'recognize\' the Akai proprietary structure. I was under the impression that none of my Akai disks could be read on a PC - even with CDXtract. Is this not true (please be so).
I have tried loading up an Akai disk and the explorer doesn\'t show that I have anything in my CD rom drive. What\'s up with this??
