Finally, my GS3 Ensemble box arrived today. . On the cover there's a sticker that says "Gigastudio upgrade" But the box says its GS3 Ensemble, so its good.

Anyways, here's my question :

1). Can you do literally everything you can do in GIGA VST that you can do in GS3 standalone mode?

2). Can you sample external audio and process the external audio through the GIGA VST? The reason i ask is that, fx-max website does not specify audio inputs drivers.
