GigaStudio Complies!

I just got GigaStudio working with my keyboard controller for the first time. I can’t really tell you what I did to get it working, but I have enough of a sense of what happened to figure it out. That’s a big, big piece of the puzzle (and one of the last that was really tormenting me).
I don’t have the words to describe how cool it was to finally sit in there with my headphones on, using my keyboard with GigaStudio, playing a Steinway grand piano and just marveling at how wonderful it sounded. I think the most poignant moment was when I was auditioning some of the sounds from the Heart of Africa and Roots of the Middle East collections (which were wonderful vocal samples, drums, rhythm loops, etc.) and literally found myself with cold chills. The possibilities are simply staggering.
I still have to figure out how to get my recording software (either Cubase LE or Cakewalk; I haven’t decided which yet) to play nice with my Firepod audio interface. But that’s probably not all that big of a deal. Not after all the other stuff I’ve worked out. I’ll figure out a way. I always do.
It’s exciting to be this close to actually recording again, to be looking at the potential of this system and realizing that from here on out, it’s going to be professional grade recording. No more apologizing for 20 year old demos that were created on a cassette 4-track.
