Welcome back Marco !
Scope can be a litte bitch sometimes, but when it works, it's an addiction.

check .mid for errors ?

I'm programming some vintage tracker, which should be able to export .mid format.
Currently, some tools like cubase5 fully understand my .mid, but midiox complains and samplitude x3 crashes.

Is there a tool/way to check the compliance of a .mid file versus the standards ?

Re: Is scope Plattform dead?

As I sometimes also experienced crackles, I can confirm that there is some - still undefinied way- to bring scope Adat out of sync, at least with pci-cards. ( I never had it with my Xite yet.) Nevertheless, if I turn on my equipment exactly the same sequence, crackles don't occur. I agree with Marco...

Re: Pci to pci e adapter

Although I still use native PCI, I also tried a Magma PCI-Extension. I tried with 15+6DSP, which worked like a charm.
Only the limit at the "masterverb-test" appears with less masterverbs.
I keep this extension for future migrations...

Engineering logs of scope ?

Is there a way to make scope report more details about it's internals ?
e.g.: I'd like to check for sync errors on the ADat-inputs.
( Today I have to run very long recordings and check them... would be much easier, if I could grep through a detailed log.)

Re: help me explain this ADAT effect

I'll try to exchange my Adat cables first.
But as roberflash wrote, I also have the feeling that the sequence of powering up the devices doesn matter.

help me explain this ADAT effect

I'm using an A16Ultra with my scope 15+6 system. The connection is ADAT. Usually my scope is slave to the A16. Sometimes all inputs give ugly crackles. They dissappear when I cut those ADATs, which provide signal from scope to A16. (All ADATs from A16 to scope are perfect now.) As soon as I reconnec...

Z--Link & Adat in parallel ?

I like to mess around with my scope on two PCs. ( PC1 with 15DSP-PCI and PC2 with Xite-1 ) As I only use one A16 for my synths, I used a Adat-switch to change PCs. I now connected zlink between Xite and A16 in parallel to Adat. Now I get lots of crackles on Adat-Ports. The samplerate settings allows...

Re: PCI capacity limit

I use Asus P7P55d with XP and Win7-32 without problems. Even SamX3 can be used with the latest patches. Nevertheless good old cubase vst5 is more stable than X3. On some motherboards it does matter, what pci-slots are used for which devices. I had to swap my digi96/8 card with my pulsar2 to get it w...

what is the simples way to play VSTs into scope ?

I want to use same VST synths to get midi out of scope and play with asio into scope.
Today I use samplitude, which is too complex for this simple job.

is there a simple & small tool to run a VST ?

Re: VDAT MIDI CC control anybody? how?

just use the VRC-S to do this.
VRC-S allows to use CC and it can control the VDAT.

Re: PCI capacity limit

I use two 9 years old machines ( I5, 8GB ) on winxp and win7-32 without trouble in scope.
But I had severe problems with samX3. Today I mostly use scope 7, which feels as stable as 5.1.
I suggest to try an other DAW to locate the problem.

Samples from Mars into scope ?

I bougth some sample pack from "https://samplesfrommars.com/".
They were delivered in various formats for some popular DAW.

Unfortunately, I'm scope addicted, so I want them to be played by some scope device.
Trying to feed them into the STS5000 didn't work for me.
Is there a way to do it ?

Re: any downsides of short latency ?

Thanks for you help. After playing around, my final result of latency for a roundtrip samX3(rme)->scope->samX3(rme) is 16ms. This seems to be the possible minimum, by adding the asio drivers' latencies: 6+3+3+6 ms = 18ms I found the parameter to compensate these 16ms in samX3, so I can achieve perfe...
