dean valentine replied to dain ryan's discussion just got east west symphonic gold. how do i run it?
"yeah,
everything should be on seperate drives for best performance,

audio/sessions on audio drive
Samples on Ext drive (FW800 if possible.)
Applications on main drive
Also Kontakt 2.2 crossgrade from Kompakt will vastly improve RAM/CPU usage.

Chris Merritt replied to dain ryan's discussion just got east west symphonic gold. how do i run it?
"The actual application running the samples is NI's Kompakt. It's a trimmed down version of Kontakt, and the samples will run in Kontakt 1 and 2. Kontakt 2 will run great in Vista 32 and 64 bit, so that's an option. I was messing with a 64 bit boot…"

Chris Merritt replied to dain ryan's discussion just got east west symphonic gold. how do i run it?
"Hi Dain. That's basically what I have (EWQLSO Plat Pro XP.) I do it all in one box. The secret is drive speed. Step one for you: max out ram (4 gigs max with 32bit os.) Get either a RAID array or at least a fast / separate drive for samples (WD…"

  • Hi dain, I appreciate your work....and your gear!
  • Hi Dain, I love looking at the photos of your "cave"! Kind of a "retro guy", eh? That's an old Korg patchcord synth, isn't it? I remember playing with one of those on the way home from school in the organ shop once. Great fun :)

    There sure are a lot of my kind of people on this forum, LOL!
  • Awe. Puppy doesn't like cameras at all.

    I had my yard look'n nice this spring, but now we're in the midst of a bad drought. Can't water the lawn due to water conserv. measures. At least no rolling blackouts, yet.

    I visited with Jo this past weekend. She doesn't change a bit : )

    She was in Chattanooga visiting my folks.

    Hot cocoa with marshmallows... m&m's in the microwave... and, mid-afternoon naps.

    sweet.

  • Good point.
    I like sushi. never been near the pacific to know what really good sushi is, though.
    how's the garden?
    what kind of dog?
    what kind of girl?
    i like trains.
  • with the lovely karmic dissolution of capital records, marjorie fair is not doin much these days. i've got way too much work on my hands and honestly i'm kind of done with the smelly tour bus anyway. i have a girl, a dog, a garden, and a train next to my house that takes me to the best sushi in this country. besides nobody buys records anymore anyway do they?
  • I've been meaning to ask... how's Marjorie Fair?
  • Now I know what you are doing with all those "stray" wires...
    Not so stray, are they?
    I remember Radiohead played on SNL after Kid A was released. I don't remember who it was in the group... maybe you know... he was playing the patch cables for all the synths. Some really nice oscillators and filters... I love it when the sounds are so rich and organic-- do you know what I mean? Not canned.
    Your stuff is like that. Alive.
    Man, I remember back when you were playing around with those early sequencing keyboards, as far back as junior high, right?
    I didn't get it then.
    Man, I wish I got it. I wish I new where it was all headed...
    Anyway, I really like your stuff.
