How many GB of samples can you load/run in a GIGA PC

Ok. I've been reading for near two days and my head is burning.

I'll put a thread to talk in deep about it but, by now, can anybody tell me how many GBs of samples (+/-) can you load/run in a single specialy-tweaked high end GIGA PC? (Say a Carillon Core Duo 2.66 with 2 GB of RAM)

(And yes, I know that Gigastudio has a RAM limit of around 1GB)

Thank you very much

on system not optimized for GS3 because I was rewiring thru Cubase I only got 650-700MB and the system ran well and didn't really crash.
optomized for GS3 I can get a little over 1GB, but nothing else runs on the machine.
I mainly use GVI now inside Cubase.
Good luck!

Hi, Olivia

Thank you for your answer.

I think you are talking about RAM. Aren't you?

My question was about the amount of GBs of data, of samples, from your Hard Disc, that you can load

ahhh, I see. What would be the difference here? I thought that since it did a RAM preload deal and streamed them off of your harddrive you would be more limited by your RAM before the HD ever became an issue?
Need more input.

I'm not talking about HD limitation. I know that the limitation is in the RAM. But the detail I want to know is: The size of libraries, the amount of data that I can load and run.

I'm looking for and answer kind of: "In a fine tuned specialized GIGA PC you can load and run a maximun of 15 - 16 GB of libraries" (or "20 -22 GB of samples") (or "you can load instruments for a maximun weigh of 6-7 GB")

Not sure if I'm clearer now ...

I was hoping someone else might have an answer too, I'm still not sure what you're trying to get at.

This isn't the ideal forum as GigaStudio is pretty much a law unto itself so I suggest you post a message here :

v.i. control forum • Board Index [ Guest ]

There's a GigaStudio section and there's a guy who works for Tascam who answers questions and will probably have the knowledge to help you .
