Gigastudio

I heard some of the most amazing live string sounds out of Gigastudio. I'm thinking about trying to get a system together with my pc laptop (on Windows XP). Any suggestions? I'm not about to drop $600 on a gigasamp cd to find out it's not what I need. How do you rate it? Is is somewhat intuitive?

I give it my highest rating. I have loaded most of my Roland Sample library into it, and it emulates the Roland Filters very acurately. New libraries that are giga compatible are easy to load and use.

GigaStudio is very intuitive, with all kinds of cool features like a mixer, DSP functions (eqs etc.).

Giga 96 has two layers of 16 midi channels each. Each midi channel can have up to 4 patches for really thick sound.

Hard disk streaming makes it possible for incredibly HUGE samples, full length with no looping.

It will integrate seamlessly with your sequencer on the same computer. It has a Sequencer button on its panel to invoke your sequencer program. At that point, GigaStudio becomes a giant sampler module for use in your sequencer.

I use Giga with my Fujitsu Pentium III 1.2 Ghz laptop. I use an Echo Audio Mona Laptop 24bit cardbus interface that has 8 ADAT I/O, spdif, and 4 analog in/6 analog outs. I use a Granite Digital firewire drive to hold all my music stuff, including my Giga Library.

If you have any more questions, I'd be glad to answer! It's well worth the money, I could not imagine NOT having it now.

Wow, a reply to a 10 year old thread!

I wouldn't have known if the forum hadn't let me know by email
since I subscribed to the thread way back then.

All my gear is waaaaay different now, so I guess I'm not
only "imagining not having Gigastudio", it's a reality

But back then it was incredible.

Was Ableton even around 10 yrs ago??!!!

Pointlessly bumping a 10 year old thread with a totally unrelated product pitch...

Are you on a mission to resurrect all sorts of pointless threads from 2002 ( almost a dozen today)? Looks like a bot to me.

Not that kind of bot.
