    GVI = up and running!!

    My GVI arrived yesterday... with trembling hands I installed it...

    Once I "registered" GVI within Cubase, it opened flawlessly.

    I haven't gotten to do any real work with it yet (it was very late), but I did manage to stack dozens of instruments on each of the 16 channels, and load two separate instances of GigaPulse Pro within Cubase, and was able to play everything without a problem.

    How funny it was to be able to load both TBO and 7CG (two different 7CG .gsi files) and GigaPulse Pro on a single GVI channel, and still have plenty of room available for loading more instruments!!

    Watching the Windows Task Manager, I saw that cubase.exe seemed to hit the wall at about 1.7GB... meaning that I couldn't load any more sounds in GVI beyond that point -- GVI seemed to take a moment to consider whether to load an additional instrument, then just decide not to. A tiny, friendly, non-catastrophic "Sorry -- not enough memory left for loading that instrument. Click 'OK' to continue" message would be nice when this happens, but I seem to have figured out the behavior...

    Hopefully, as soon as the "multiple instances" issue is resolved (and TASCAM has already made clear at LGS that they are working on it), I'll be able to launch another instance of GVI and load even more sounds... Heh.....

    Glad to know yours is running smoothly. Got mine Monday. Haven't loaded it yet. Thought I'd do another system install and tweak first. Kinda waiting on the multiple instance issue to be resolved. Are they making any headway on it? Meanwhile I'll try some more to conquer GS3. Have fun.

    Install it now and get to know it. When they release an update, I assume it will be a patcher like they do with Gigastudio. I've been running GVI in Sonar for a few days now and it's been pretty cool. I can see myself getting rid of the second machine in the near future.

    Funny you should mention getting rid of one machine. Getting ready to buy another. I'll wait now though. Thanks. Setting it up today. Don't need to un-install GS do I?

    Uninstall GS3 to install GVI?

    No!! No need.

    Just remember to skim through Chapter 2 of the GVI manual ("Installing GVI In Host Programs") which gives Cubase/Sonar/etc.-specific instructions for setting GVI up within your DAW/sequencer application. You can find the manual on the tascamgiga.com site.
