Hello,

has anyone tried the combination of GS3 and GVI on the same computer?

As you can see by my post some minutes ago I bought/installed a new machine (Win XP Pro. 32bit) for gigastudio and mainly for the VSL. So far I haven't experienced any problems using rewire and I wonder if it wouldn't be a great 'memory tweak' to use GS3 and GVI simultaniously as these are two different apps/processes (My DAW is Nuendo).

So any experience on my question above would be helpful.
Thank you in advance,

Ricardo

I have no experience of this, but I can't see any advantage in using GS3 at all, apart from editing. You should be able to load up to 2.5GB in Nuendo anyway, and it is unlikely that GS will be able to use any memory at all in this case. However, be warned that if you use the /3Gig switch, in order to be able to load more than 1.5Gb in Nuendo, then GS3 may not work at all.

Hello Ricardo,

I'm running GS3 and GVI on the same machine, at the same time, no problem whatsoever. OS: Windows XP, DAW: Nuendo 3

I don't know of any advantages however, it's just that I was recreating some older GS3 projects on the GVI, and you can just drag & drop sounds from GS3 to the GVI panes, which is nice.
And of course, you don't have to uninstall GS3 so you can still use the Giga Editor.

As for loading times, (I'm not concluding yet, as I'm still testing) it appears that I can load less with the GVI in favour of the GS3. Especially since I need to open many GVI instances (only 16slots) to load the same amount of patches than in GS3 (128 slots). And that causes the CPU much more work.

Cheers,

Alex

Same computer? Same song!!

You can hear excerpts from two songs created using a combination of GS3 and GVI on my fledgling site (http://alanb.org/music.shtml"="" target="_blank" title="http://alanb.org/music.shtml">http://alanb.org/music.shtml">http://alanb.org/music.shtml)... specifically "A Square Peg in a Much Larger Round Hole" and "Luna's Dance."

Whether you like the music is one thing... but, if nothing else, you can see (well... you can hear) that the technology works...

Thank you for your replies!

My quest (never ending) is to find an affordable machine/config/whatever to play a whole orchestral arrangement at once until the final mixdown.

Actually I produce/arrange classical CDs with musical examples and play alongs for children. It takes me days to bounce the individual tracks of a CD that has an overall playing time of about 44 minutes. The result is that I accept errors and bad played/edited parts of my arrangements just because I don't want to go back and bounce the tracks again.

Right now I installed a dual Xeon, 4GB RAM and multible HDD machine to overcome these limits without success so far. The Windows limit is 2 GB Ram per process (a little more through tweaking) so I hope that splitting the available system RAM (about 3,4 GB) between to apps (msg32.exe and nuendo.exe) will boost the performance.

I going to order my GVI 'upgrade' within the next days and maybe I will come a little closer to a 'live orchestra'.

Thank you and all the best,

Ricardo
