Easy installation under Windows 98 with version 2.2. I use a multi-Hoontech customers with Sonar and it turns smoothly. I can even open Soundforge and everything works. The manual is probably insufficient maiscomme much I use it only as a sample player.
PIIII 1.5 GHz with an ASUS P4 RAMBUS and 300 MHz for 512 MB HD 7200 should be a T (an IBM 40 GB) dedicated to Gigastudio that everything works well and install on the same IDE port as the main disk.
The performance is unbeatable ... I used it with my Hoontech DSP 24 and a Echo Gina 20: no problem.
I use it for 2 years. I listen more nepeux other NSOs (type external expanders). Its price is fair but the cd sounds are trp expensive. It has a default size but we can not use VST or DXi which complicates the recording (not possible to use the Bounce to track). It passes through the outside or using a direct recording function that requires to play the song: beware of sync problems!
