    Sonar 4 & Giga 3.12: Midi delay problem

    I'm new to Gigastudio - just got Ensemble and am having a few problems.

    My PC is a P4 2.0ghz
    1 GB ram
    Echo Gina24 with latest drivers
    Creative Labs Soundblaster Live (for midi)

    Running Sonar 4.03

    The biggest problem I have is running in rewire mode. I can load instruments in Giga and trigger them in Sonar, but the latency is so bad I can't really play anything. However, playback works OK (at least in terms of latency).

    Other symptoms (in case these help)

    If I run Giga standalone, it will only output sound about 50% of the time (using the audition button). I used to be able to trigger notes with my keyboard or the virtual keyboard, but none of those produce sound anymore.

    And Gigastudio complains every time I start it (in standalone mode) that it did not start properly the last time... and do I want to run diagnostics etc. I can't get rid of this message.

    So... I've been wondering about the rewire mode problem... could it be the fact that I use a different audio card for midi? Does my audio card just suck?

    Any help appreciated!

    Your CPU is slow at 2., but why do run the Soundblaster Live?
    Try to take it out and see what happens?

    Are you absolutely certain that you are assigning the Gina as the soundcard in Sonar? The Soundblaster driver would give you that ridiculous latency.
