After seeing VSL discontinuing the entire Horizon and Pro Edition series
I was kinda wondering if there will be a final update for this products.

What I mean is that, this discontinuation gives me a little uncertainty regarding support for the performance tool.

What if I wanna run a 64 Bit OS (WinXP64/Vista64)? Is the Performance Tool
working with these Os, and if not will VSL provide us with an update?

And... if not, an update to the above mentioned libraries for GS3 iMIDI rules
(legato) could be possible?

I know, this would make the perf tool sort of redundant, but for discontinued products it would seem the right thing to do.
best regards

may i offer a suggestion - let's discuss this (perftool for 64 bit) after we see sequencers and gigastudio in the 64bit domain ... currently i don't see any example of use.

if you have GS3 orchestra you should also have the vienna giga orchestra (hopefully the naming is correct) with a few iMIDI rules for legato - it should be easy though tiring to create them for any VSL legato instrument, the idea behind midi processing is the same.

Nuendo 4 is 64bit, Cubase 4.1 will be 64bit, FXT is 64bit, blah, blah, blah. This argument is getting old....

i'll reply when i have GS 64bit on my desk ... ok? Wink
AFAIK you can't have sonar 64bit and GS3 on one machine, so you should have the performance tool also on your 32bit machine for the moment.

Well, some of us cynical souls might interpret your initial response to say “Wait ‘till you really need it. Then we’ll let you know if we plan to provide it.”

i wouldn't word it that way (and in fact do no think that way) but of course it depends also somehow on a real situation to use it - how else should it be tested? please consider there are many more important things on the developing schedule before an imaginable need.

Christian, thanks for your response.

Regarding to the 64bit version of perftool was only meant as an example as I'm not using a 64bit environment for musicproduction yet.

My concern is rather that the support for us GS users will drop/faint after a while. And with upgrading any hardware component for a workstation means to get a new key for the perf tool.

Also, seeing the mentioned products to be discontinued...well, what is the purpose of the perf tool now anyway if you can have the libraries "fully" reprogrammed for GS3 iMIDI.

So...this is why I asked if an final update will be for us "abandoned?" GS users.
best regards

No, but I have FXT and I have had it for months. Try to sidestep that one. Devil

 Now that Nuendo 4 is out and GS4 isWinXp 64 And Vista 64 compatible,

it seems we are not that far away to have a 64 bit environment for musicproduction.
