Topic: please help me, anybody...

    please help me, anybody...


    I, and two other members of this bbs just put together a survey of hardware for Giga Users.
    It would be greatly appreaciated if you cut this list(survey) out of this message, post a reply, paste in this list and then note your items on each line.

    This should take all of maybe three minutes to do, and I guarantee that many people would love you eternally for it (well, alright, maybe just like you eternally)-- especially me, but I am sure many others on this bbs as well.

    God bless you. God save the Queen (& Giga).

    and the survey is:
    -processor (ie PII, PIII, Athalon, etc.)
    -chipset (ie BX, Via kt-133 )
    -hard drive(s) (use SCSI?)
    -sound card(s)
    -standalone use?
    -video processor/card/settings
    -BIOS settings (i.e. - turning off USB, memory latency, etc.)
    -Midi Input Card
    -other processors
    -recording system - hardware/software
    -sequencing system - hardware/software
    -polyphony (# voices achieved in Giga)
    -click/pops in Giga? sometimes?
    -sound quality (1-10)
    -midi performance (built in/stand alone/win 2k ect.)
    -other problems

    PPS: if something doesn\'t make sense to you or you\'re not sure of the answer, or you just don\'t feel like digging out that
    information from your box, just leave it out!

    Good idea, Jerry.

    -processor: PII 500
    -chipset: How do you find out?
    -motherboard How do you find out?
    -ram: 128 mg
    -hard drives: for Gig files: Western Digital Caviar 205AA 5400 RPM, 5.5 ms average latency; for system & programs: WDC AC313000R
    -sound cards: gina 20 bit (for Giga); SB32
    -standalone use? Yes
    -video processor/card/settings: NVidia Riva TNT 1280 X 1024 high color
    -BIOS settings: desabling USB & SB32 has no effect on Giga
    -Midi Input Card: Midiman 1X1
    -other processors
    -recording system - hardware/software: external (Mac)
    -sequencing system - hardware/software: external (Mac)
    -polyphony: max 64 exactly (always) (on a Gigastudio 96)
    -click/pops in Giga? sometimes? (see below)
    -sound quality (1-10) 10 except at noted below.
    -midi performance (built in/stand alone/win 2k ect.)- don\'t understand
    -other problems
    - If I keep my Gigapiano\'s mix at max and play very load with lots notes, I get the crackling I associate with digital clipping. I have verified that this happens at the source and not later in the audio chain. To eliminate this on very load passages, I must turn Gigapiano\'s mixer down fairly low. At this level I have a problem with noise from the Gigastudio.

    Typo: my Processor is PIII 500

    Oh, brother. More typos: mix=mixer, load=loud

    Re: please help me, anybody...

    -processor--PII 350
    -motherboard-Intel I believe, .. forget 440
    -ram- 384
    -hard drive: 40 Gig 5400 main and apps, 12 gig 7200 audio, 30 gig Quantum Fireball (7200) for gigs on its own IDE controller
    -sound card: on Board Yammy DX wave, and WamiRack 24
    -standalone use: no
    -video processor/card/settings: Creative Graphics Blaster (Riva TNT). Harware Acceleration set to full.
    -BIOS settings: haven\'t checked lately what I foolied with, but I did screw around a little, it made little or no difference
    -Midi Input Card: WamiRack 24
    -other processors
    -recording system: Sometimes same system through Wami, and occaisionally to VS1680 HD recorder
    -sequencing system: Cubase
    -polyphony: 70 is the average best
    -click/pops in Giga?: Ocaisionally ,..but rare, with my settings in Giga (poly/voice remove)
    -sound quality: 10 thorugh 1680 and using the VS verbs...hate NFX
    -midi performance: Fairly good. Win 98,...is ok, but some issues pop up here and there on Big sections
    -other problems: Not many

    I must have lucked out. With this setup somehow. I\'m building an athlon 1 gig right now, have everything but the case, will repost when I get that thing running (may do it tonight with this computer\'s case jsut to test it out)

    Really...I am an Idiot
