Re: The end of an era

Studio One v4 has just been released. Looks like I wasn't the only one who felt it needed a Step-Sequencer cause that's exactly what Presonous has just added. It seems to be a very flexible and fast usage one. They claim a innovative Step-Sequencer but I don't see the innovation yet. Studio One is a...

Re: What additional plugins are your favourites ?

But dNa's effect rack makes anything sound better, and I always throw in a bass amp like Celmo's BAM or the Ampeg model after it all...amps just are the difference adding warmth and compression that rounds out the tone. +1 on dNa plugins. They are amongs my favorite and I belive amongs the very bes...

Re: Cakewalk keeps alive!

Gibson just filed Chapter 11 Bankruptcy and are over $100-Million in debt. It's obvious they have and had serious problems and never should have bought Cakewalk.

Re: Security & Privacy with technology in 2018

What I hate about corporate abuse like this privacy issue is it ends up harming us in multiple ways. First our Privacy is destroyed cause Facebook and others don't know where to draw the line and go overboard doing things like watching all of your internet activities even after you leave their websi...

Re: New Xite Computer

Z170 is discontinued though, along with i7 6000 series CPUs, I.e. i7 6700k, etc. May as well get the latest Intel since it’s really mature now. The i3 8350k if you want a quad and any i5/i7 8000 series. The i7 8700k is cheap now thanks to AMD. Good the hear about the compatibility, thanks. WOW :o !...

Re: SHARC DSP revision number

I doubt you'll be dissatisfied with the XITE-1D. If you're coming from a very old 10 dsp pci card system then the jump to the XITE-1D is very significant and should be enough power to keep you busy for a long time to come, especially if you have a powerfull computer to go with it. I think when one m...

Re: Cakewalk keeps alive!

https://cakewalk.bandlab.com/ Officially Resurrected! I'm glad to read that they plan to have very aggressive development for Sonar/Cakewalk and will pursue innovation for it (not frills and gimmicks, or very little of this hopefully). I suspect they might bring some sort of over-the-internet proje...

Re: what are you listenennig to at the moment?

Janis Joplin . Was the undisputed "Queen of Rock" and the first female Rock-Superstar. She started with Blues and had a VERY soulfull voice when she sung that way. She had a very unique Bluesy-Rock voice that produced top-notch singing. Love her very heavily distorted raspy voice that can get very d...

I installed Scope 7, it found XITE during the installation right away, and everything installed without any issues, and Scope is running fl...

I’m pretty much at a point I desire nothing more for my studio apart from Xite related goodies once and a while. 😁🔊🎶😀 I'm largely the same way. When I bought SCOPE I settled down and nolonger felt the need for anything new, jusr occasional wants. My purchasing rate dropped DRAMATICALLY and my purch...

Re: MPA: A whole new Chapter for SCOPE and you are invited

@Liquid Edge. You do love SCOPE itself don't you :D ? SCOPE has long been with lots of bugs like most complex software i.e DAWs, Windows O/S, etc. I'm sure you don't regret buying SCOPE despite all the bugs its always had. Bugs will always be with sophisticated software. You are correct if software ...

Re: MPA: A whole new Chapter for SCOPE and you are invited

Ofcourse everyone wants bugfree software, but in order to survive as a company one HAS to develop new stuff. Else you will be gone in a few years. Bugfixes dont pay bills. For me...please do new stuff, but not just for the sake of new stuff...there has to be a vision behind it all. ....dont keep ha...

hi Frank; Welcome back :) This all sounds exciting, can't wait to see what you have to offer. Using existing Scope gear is a good starting point I think. I hope that you and Holger can come to an agreement to propel both of your interests for the benefit of all. +1.. Can't wait to see what this new...

Re: Cakewalk keeps alive!

@Valis. Yea, Gibson left a bad impression with me the short time I dealt with them. Gibson sold many of us Sonar users free lifetime upgrades for Sonar for onetime low price and then after only one year they closed Cakewalk's doors and discontinued Sonar. If they knew that they and Cakewalk was in b...

Re: Cakewalk keeps alive!

:-? It would have been a big shame to take that great software to the graveyard without any real reason! I agree!! Cakewalk has a large user-base and it would be foolish to let all those customers go and send them elsewhere out in the cold. Cakewalk's Sonar may not be as big as Cubase, Protools, et...

Re: Creamware scope modular mentioned on Sonicstate live feed

I've always been surprised that more people had not bought into the SCOPE Platform specifically for Modular. In my view SCOPE Modular is still the best virtual- Modular out here when considering sound and functionality and it being in the SCOPE environment (no CPU usage , no latency, etc). I love th...

Re: New Xite Computer

Let me add that the latest intel processors can only run Windows 10 but the i7 4790K can run pretty much any version of Windows from XP to 10.
