Re: racktion eNews - Waveform to the Power of Pi

Recently aquired one of those PI thingies on flea market for a tenner, mostly because it had the same CPU as my iPad.
Thinking: maybe gets me into ARM coding... but then reading all the Linux (sorry) rubbish and almost lost interest.
But hardware costs are ridiculously low atm.

Re: [resolved] uncluttered switching Live and ASIO sources, or ASIO-like VDAT

definitely useful thinking... about the quick Scope live scenario versus the (in my case, too) unsolved recording setup.
In all those years still not solved, blame it to Mr. Lazy, who's attention is drawn away by 'sound' ever so often :D

Re: Levels For Powered Cabinets

Level doesn't matter (much) for a quality cabinet - it will react similiar on low and high volumes. But your ears won't be as trustworthy: their natural freqquency response is loudness depending. So the same cabinet will appear to sound different at different volumes ;) Some guitar cabinets may soun...

Or it's simply because 4 cards is pushing the hardware beyond what was feasible when this technology was current.
Afaik PCI busses are grouped in '3 slot units', sometimes 2 busses were fully exposed (6 slot design), but later a single external bus was more common, hence the 3 cards maximum.

Re: RME raydat AND scope connected together!

The main 'feature' of the pre-HDSP RME cards (Digi series) is the lack of a kernel streaming driver.
They work fine with Asio, though - but no system sound of most streaming services and similiar.

Re: STS 4000 x64

... The real deal sounds best, where "best" might be matter of taste too. For sure it does for the "programs" they created for multisamples and the original hardware. I compared some EMU stuff from my ESI imported into STS. It transfers only the pure waveform, but skips any tweaks for filter, envel...

Re: A16 Ultra VS 2496 IO Box

The A16 Ultra features 16 converters that are all synced to the same clock signal. You can set sensitivity and output level per channel. A balanced studio setup will deliver a better signal to noise ratio and prevent interference between devices. You may need to balance external devices by transform...

Re: A communication error with Pulsar2 (brd 0) has occured.

I'd rather suspect the S/TDM connection
iirc you live on the coast of Croatia, salty air is nice to breathe, but quite aggressive to metal components ;)
did you check the offending Pulsar 2 as the only card ?

Re: Harmonizer or vocoder? Live vocal harmonies

Vocodizer is one of the best live vocoders and very close to top analog gear in this domain (imho) :8 You can mix it with your 'regular' voice and achieve some harmonic effect, but the modulated wave heritage will always be obvious. For vocal harmonization you need formant shifting added to the pitc...

Re: Anyone got a VCS3 patch for Modular ?

It's probably the access to controls and how they act/interact on the VCS surface. I just switched to the iVCS3 (as I'm typing on the tablet) and within minutes I had something similiar to the Pink Floyd sequence running and could dial it into a Canned Heat like Blues Shuffle just by osc3 slipped in...

Re: Anyone got a VCS3 patch for Modular ?

there is a modular patch called Synthi (or similiar) based on the architecture of the VCS3. I like the iPad version a lot, which captures the bizarre internals of the thing in a well respected way. (and recently got a significant update of the filter) It's one of the best synth apps in IOS, a consta...
