Sonorus Announces NemeSys GigaSampler/GigaStudio Support for STUDI/O


Release date: September 22, 2000

Editorial Contact: Mark Clayton <>

Los Angeles, CA —Sonorus, Inc. announces STUDI/O driver support for the popular GigaSampler/GigaStudio PC-based sampler from NemeSys Music Technology. 

The GSIF protocol supports low-latency, multi-channel I/O, which is a must for professional audio applications, and for samplers in particular.  With STUDI/O, up to 16 discrete digital outputs can be generated simultaneously, and can be routed to digital audio mixers or recorders while remaining in the digital domain.  STUDI/O’s GSIF support is multi-client, which means that STUDI/O can utilize more than one protocol simultaneously.  In fact, STUDI/O can operate using up to four different protocols: GSIF, ASIO, EASI and Windows MME, all at once.  This makes it possible to run GigaSampler or GigaStudio alongside most multi-track editing programs such as Cubase VST, Logic Audio, and Cakewalk Pro Audio.

The award-winning STUDI/O card is the flagship product of Sonorus.  It’s a complete 16-channel digital audio interface on a single PCI card.  It uses two pairs of 8-channel ADAT-compatible optical interfaces to connect to any ADAT-optical gear such as mixing consoles, outboard A/D and D/A converters, and of course, ADAT digital audio recorders.  For more information, check out  The STUDI/O driver that includes GigaSampler/GigaStudio support is available for free download for all past, present and future STUDI/O owners.

NemeSys Music Technology is the manufacturer of the GigaSampler and GigaStudio series of MIDI samplers.  Their advanced real-time architecture allows for up to 160 note polyphony with the low latency and responsiveness required for real-time performance and playback.  With STUDI/O’s GSIF driver, latencies of 4 to 5 milliseconds are possible, better than some stand-alone hardware samplers costing many thousands of dollars more.  For more information, see

Sonorus will demonstrate the GigaSampler/GigaStudio and STUDI/O combination at the 109th AES Show in Los Angeles, this September 21 through September 25 at Booth 1058
