Yes, a really good guide.

Just make sure to fist fully backup your computer and know where your original driver's are located, just in case you need to replace them.

I was experimenting with removing certain drivers and windows installed its own drivers, this giving me hassle.

It took me a while to find and download the original from the components manufacturer.

Better be safe than sorry.

I love Gig Performer. Much better than using Helix Native trough a DAW. Looking forward to the new version being released.

I bought mine through Plugin Alliance, so I hope they will have reasonable pricing for the upgrade. I only got mine in November or December, can't remember... and am a bit gutted that only after using it a few times (still learning its features), there is going to be a new version in June.

Anyway, the above guide made good improvements in my sound setup and I thought it would be a good idea spreading the word!

Looking forward reading the second edition when you post it.

Thanks

I'm not familiar with that word, and could only find a reference to a Vietnamese author?

This "que" always reminds me of Latin (when suffixed, it means "and").

PG Music News
Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
