Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

Yeah - I find it interesting as well, but the price is "naughty". There are quite a few interesting demos here: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=8Dio+Sequential+Prophet+X About the future sample import feature, if this is important to you, then maybe you should wait until they have actua...

Re: 2 x Asus boards 3 X PCI slots

Is there any real experience with running SCOPE PCI-cards on these newer chipsets and if, what was the performance like?

Re: Six String on Scope XITE 7 @ 96kHz max 2 voices before DSP capacity limit

Yes, going 96Khz will double your DSP resource needs. Maybe the single most important reason to consider, if you really need that almost unnoticeable fluff of air ;)

Re: Merits of going 24bit/96khz?

Yeah - I should have done more research on what the Xite could and could not do. And it is true that John developed his synths on the PCI-cards running version 3.? software I believe. He has looked into optimizing the Solaris and the Quantum, but this cannot be done because of hardware constraints o...

Re: Merits of going 24bit/96khz?

One of the reasons I bought the Xite was to get higher voice count on the Solaris and the Quantum - I got the opposite. Another reason was to get the power to go 96Khz, but I ended up sticking my tail between my legs hoping my ears and equipment survived the experiment. Unless you are used to and li...

Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

The list price is 4000$ not Euros ;)

Also, John Bowens Solaris is in the same price range, $4199 to be exact, a synth that seems to attract attention from people from this forum - even yours ;)

Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

I don't think it is for me either, although I have been gassing for a modern Poly Evolver type synth for a while, which I do believe this to be. 4000 is a lot though and prolly more than I'm willing to pay. I don't see how the Zarg ProWave compare to this though? Only the Solaris can do stuff that i...

Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

I'm hoping for a new take on the poly evolver, which would also make sense since it will be a new product that doesn't compete with the existing line of DSI synths.

Re: Python Pro 1.02 on Scope 7 - Does anyone have this device working ok?

The Python Pro was sold for $199 back in 2003: https://web.archive.org/web/20041205180552/http://www.zargmusic.com:80/ourproductcatalog/ I found an old demo version I had lying around and can confirm that it seems to work on the XITE running Scope 7.0, Windows 7 64 bit.

Re: I did not know Autotune could sound this coool!

Most cats I've known have a spot on their back near the spine that makes them behave as the cat in the last video if you rub that exact spot - Other creatures I've met react in a similar way, but different spots... And then I think the video has been manipulated: Speed changes, forward play, backwar...

Re: Scope VST integration with Reaper

Essentially the same way as you would use an external compressor inside Reaper (which I do not know in detail) just by routing the signals back and forth from Reaper to Scope back to Reaper through Asio Channels. I guess: read the chapter in Reapor about using external hardware devices inside Reaper...

Re: Building PC Pulsar 1 + Luna no breakout cable

As long as it is a SCOPE card with DSP chips on it, you can use it as the third card.

You don't have to custom build a machine, just make sure that mobo/chipset works fine with Scope from several threads in here. You will be able to find olded builds as well in there.

Welcome back :) You could use the I/O's on the Luna card - which you would like to run as primary anyways to gain lowest possibe latency.

Re: Sample rate issues

Stupid question; You are changing the sample rate from within Scope and not from Windows or your DAW of choise?

Also, try to disconnect your A16, just to simplify and isolate potential problems.
