Re: Green science

Valis, deep thoughts, and it is interesting to consider processes on timescales that dwarf human lifetimes or even the existence of human civilization. A favorite of mine is the carbonate-silicate cycle. In the deep past (>540mya) there have been at least four episodes of "snowball earth" in which t...

Re: Green science

Btw, when we hear meaningless assertions like “Climate change is real,” or “The science is settled” I have this knee-jerk response always come to my mind, “fine, then we should cancel all funding for climate research.” This is not so much a retort to you Peter as it is my reaction to the politiciza...

Re: Green science

I should probably also add, look into the Calvin cycle for the nitty-gritty on rubisco and how plants utilize CO2.

Re: Green science

Valis, not much to tell beyond that. I was just the biology guy helping out some physicists and chemists. It is good to get down to primary sources instead of simple summaries, although science papers can be difficult reading even with a lot of science education. Here's the paper in question: http:/...

Re: Green science

That's a weird and flawed paper, even though it was published in a prestigious journal. What NASA has been detecting is an enzyme named rubisco that is used in the first chemical step in fixing CO2. It's the most abundant enzyme on Earth, and noticable by it's brown color that is revealed when veget...

Re: Low, high, band pass 12db-->120db slope

Cool. I'm just curious about what kind of artifacts it makes near the cutoff. I'll post a picture if it's really pretty or ugly.

Re: Phase Fixer or Sample Delay Insert

Phase Fix also does a great job when aligning channels with external fx units 8) (if one isn't using the 2448 Mixer, which has the feature built into the channel strip) Thanks Astroman, this prompted me to open the manual on the 2448 for the first time in years and find that I had missed some featu...

Re: Phase Fixer or Sample Delay Insert

Okay, here's MiLLi-DeLay and another handy tool called PhaseCheck. I can't find where I got these, so if anyone recognizes them and objects to them being distributed I will remove the files. Also, don't know if these have related .dsp or .dll files and no way to determine that or which ones. Another...

Re: Phase Fixer or Sample Delay Insert

Do you mean like Parallize http://forums.scopeusers.com/download/file.php?id=4445 or PhaseFix? https://www.dropbox.com/s/q9en6c6xv4pu8e7/exquisa.de.zip By Mix 5 do you mean the master section on Modular Mixer V1? If so, I've used MS Slot there to that purpose. http://www.scopeusers.com/Pulsar/files/...

So you get a continuously rising tone as they bleat. Stockhausen tried to tame them in Hymnen but it didn’t work - they rose polyphonically.
Getting into the deep cuts there with Stockhausen... At a more innocent age I thought those were shortwave radio sounds.

Meta question: What is the Projects subforum all about?

There are some interesting things in here to be sure, but all I find for the most part is just screenshots of projects, and often modulars that don't show any routing. I can infer a great deal by just looking at the pictures, and pick up some ideas and pointers, but it seems odd that people don't sh...

Re: Creamware Pulsar 1 Help/Support/Install files needed

It really is impressive, and I'm sure the people behind it like to get some positive feedback like this once in a while. There are a lot of good things that have come from how far ahead of its time Pulsar/Scope were and are, robust protection that doesn't cause operational problems, the fact that no...

Re: infacing a dedicated DAW pc ?

Your questions are a little unclear, but I'll try to answer them. By DAW do you mean the multitrack audio/midi/synth software that is not Scope? Yes, you can run things on a separate PC, but that brings a whole set of other problems. Specific information as to what you are trying to do would be help...
