I can think of a few ways, but I'm wondering what's the recommended way.
the easiest way is to give your converted giga sounds the same name as in SoundbankGM2,
i mean like this:
your converted giga file name is= Drum stan1.gig
you have inside SoundbankGM2 folder a GM Drums.gig
so, change the name Drum stan1.gig to GM Drums.gig
the best way is to start first with creating first a folder named SoundbankGM2 with 128 emty folder with the same 128 folder name used in existing SoundbankGM2.
You can also use qsampler fronted to make new MS-02-instruments-1.lscp. but when you have finished this way you most save this file in your GigaLibrary folder and a copy of this file inside Presets folder.
but if you've changed programa places you get problem, to solve this you most edit gmgigabank_Lionstracs file with text editor to change your new program names and screen names for programs you want to see on your MS displat if you press MS layer 4 key.
if you're using second you most edit styles again to, with your new instruments programs names on each track.
I think for now the first way is best, then after a while if you know everything you most know and you can control everything you can start with secind way because it is also not difficult, only you must be very careful
