Re: DC coupled A16U?

don't remember. did you try it? No, I have a Nuendo/RME 8ch. AD/DA which is DC coupled. But, I´m also interested in if the A16U is since I bought 2 of these recently. OTOH, I don´t want to be the G.P. an damage one of the A16Us. someone modded their AD/DA way back when.... Well, modding digital gea...

DC coupled A16U?

I'd like to control some physical modular stuff through Scope, and also back the other way. Is the A16U DC coupled? Can it be? I'm handy with an oscilloscope and soldering iron. Do I need to discuss this with Ferrofish? Failing that, anyone using some cheap and cheerful Lightpipe interface in this m...

Re: Ocean Swift STDM Cables possible production run

Faxi, sorry to hear this, but I'd prefer that you use your very skilled time with code rather than hardware. If you wouldn't mind, could you tell the rest of us the supplies/manufacturers that you have found we should avoid for supplies? Someone else here can probably pick up that ball and give it a...

Re: Security & Privacy with technology in 2018 and beyond

Yeah, 1000 USD per each of the 50 million accounts, or 23 for each of the ~220 million US accounts at the time, or 65 cents for each and every human on the planet as well as the handful in orbit. I really don't know where I'm going with this.

Re: Matrix Mixer

Much thanks, it appears this will do some things I set up with SpaceF's Modular Mixer, but more neatly, because I'm a total slob in my project window.

Also, I really appreciate your good work, anything nice I could do for you, or maybe just donate to the forum on your behalf?

Re: 6 dsp pulsar 2 don't start :(

In my case it was a cracked connection with one of the ones between the SHARC chips. If there isn't obvious physical damage some quick work with an oscilloscope can track it down. If a repair tech is hesitant to do board level repair tell him or her "it's just a filter cap problem" and they'll know ...

Re: 6 dsp pulsar 2 don't start :(

Looks like you have a capacitor gone bad, or the solder pad for one. Easy fix for someone with the right skills.

Re: I gave up giving up scope and come back, keep the faith!

I think sometimes we forget that even a modest Scope system is a virtual world-class recording/mixing/mastering facility with a ton of outboard and a big room full of synths. While it's easier and more convenient in many ways it still takes time, practice, and maintenance to be fully cooperative wit...

Re: Is scope Plattform dead?

SonicCore just had one of the best months we have seen in about a year. there are still plenty of users. That is great news. The longevity of the system(s) and the continuing legacy support are amazing, but I fear it could all unexpectedly end one of these days. Personally, I would still be okay fo...

Re: Luna II - dead?

Yes, I've had similar symptoms with a Pulsar 2 and fixed it by replacing the bad capacitor. It's not too challenging if you have basic soldering skills. Any competent repair tech should be able to do it, but pm me if you have too hard a time convincing someone to take it on. Good luck.

Re: BX Oberhausen

Thanks, nice to see a demo by someone that knows synthesis. That m-s filter is a brilliant idea, I think I'll have to bash that together in the modular and maybe SDK sometime. Sure wish the Brainworx stuff was still available in Scope; it's great in VST too, but it's a nuisance to have mixing tools ...
