    hi pros..
    I got a protools mixplus setup at home. with AD8000 as my audio interface.
    recently, i've been trying to use a PC instead of my slow hardware sampler. I'm using a soundblaster live card running with a gigastudio.
    I didn't try to record the sounds from AD8000..instead, I convert the sounds inside of the PC..(that's a function in gigastudio)and burn the WAVE files to the ProTools setup.. but it sounds so thin...theoretically..it's the best to convert the sound inside of PC..cuz you won't loose anything. but practically...is this the best way to record sounds from gigasampler?

    Are there any PROS using gigastudio? how do you tracking the sound? is the SPDIF output on SBLIVE would be better than converting the sounds inside of PC?
    thanks!

    You are definately better off running the Gigastudio outs thru the SPDIF port on the Soundblaster...does the SB card have GSIF compatable drivers?
    Going thru the AD8K would be your best bet..I mean C'mon!!! Why convert them in the PC, burn them to disk when you can send them thru an Apogee unit and put Soft limit or UV22 on themm(hmm, you dont think by me working for Apogee I'm endorsing them at all do ya!! lol :p )
    Whe you convert the sounds within the Giga product your not doing them much justice..record them straight into Pro Tools and you'll hear the difference almost at once
