    Please help, Gigastudio freezes up my new computer

    After years of solid performace and few glitches, I decided to upgrade.(oops)

    Now I can't start gigastudio without freezing up my machine, either when I start (often), or when I close (the rare cases when giga opens).

    It seems to be wrestling with quick sound at the start, but I just can't fathom why it does it at the close.

    This is what I got:

    Asus A8N5X
    Athalon AMD 64x2 3800 Dual Core
    Maxtor 100 gig
    Western Digital 200gig
    1 Gig of Ram
    Diamond Stealth x300 PCIE video card
    I use an Aardvark 24/96
    and Windows XP (no updates, no SP2)
    Cubase SE
    GIgastudio 2.54

    I am a relatively light user of Gigastudio, lots of piano, and a few other libs.(I have a midi sport 2x2 and have never felt the need to upgrade)

    I've been through all of the Tascam tweaks. Clean uninstal, and reinstal.

    I just want to be able to click the icon on the desktop, and have it start.

    Any thoughts?

    thanks

    My understanding is that only the latest verison of Giga (v3.12) can operate on a dual core machine. One of many lessons that I learned the hard way (crashes, BSoDs, the works)...

    It may be possible to disable your processor's "dual core" capabilities, although that may compromise your performance vis-a-vis non-Giga applications.

    Another alternative is upgrading to the latest version of Giga, and taking your chances with whatever problems *that* upgrade may bring you....

    That could be the problem...

    You need GS 3.12 for dual core compatibility

    Also, I would taxe your OS to xp pro SP2

    I built a giga machine 3 months ago, AMD 4400+/xp pro/GS 3.12 -- perfect!

    Oh man,

    I had a feeling you might say that.

    My next question is:

    Wait for Giga VST or upgrade now to 3.12?

    Also I understand that the Aardvark cards hate SP2.

    What current sound card comes close to the same feature set as the Aardvark?

    i.e. 4 preamps, headphone, monitor outs, no external mixer.

    thanks for the help.
