Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

I'd bet the samples are 16bit, but all processing is either 24 or 32bit anyway (DSPs just don't do much as 16b accumulation naturally), so the output of the oscillators after pitch shifting is still 24/32b. Still, the filters add another level of smoothing, and some of the best samples I have (once ...

Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

My Korg DSS-1 is a 12/16bit sampler with analog filters, and damn it's the finest combo of cream and grit I've ever heard.

Re: Dave Smith Instruments & 8DIO Sequential Prophet X

Prophet (r)evolver with VS type wavetables or further sampling would be fun. Almost as good as a Zarg ProWave! Almost.

Re: Merits of going 24bit/96khz?

Back to 16bit vs. 24bit: My two cents (or sense) is that use it if you have it, but drums of all instruments benefit the least from the larger samples. Drums, in a mix, (and in my senses), have the least dynamic range, in terms of raw sample bits that come through directly in a mix (samples without ...

Many git servers offer wiki already, unless it still needs restricted access for certain developers.

Gitlab is one of my favorites.

Re: DSP assignment. How does it work? What are the best DSPs to use.

I don't remember where it came from now, but if you assign a synth to a slot (9/13/17 dsps), make it one voice before you do the assignment, make the assignment, and then set the voices to what you want, and all the synth voices should stay within that slot, simplifying routing to mixers and midi ro...

Re: DSP assignment. How does it work? What are the best DSPs to use.

In general, DSPs 7-10 have the most inter-DSP connections, and provide the best place for mixer's to live (STM2448x go here) with the other DSPs intended for synths/FX on channels as such: 7 : 11, 15 8 : 12, 16 9 : 13, 17 10: 14, 18 If the DSP assignments stick, this gives the least number of SAT co...

Since the went bankrupt, this is one way to get a new core base of customers established, who then buy into upgrades and expansions instead of the base price of the daw.

Re: Fastest Quad Is The Cheapest

Intel has shifted from alternate generational of new architecture vs. new process, to a three step new process, new architecture, optimization.

We're in the optimize (8th) gen now, and it seems to be fruitful.

Re: Fastest Quad Is The Cheapest

8PCIe lanes seems plenty for XITE + M.2 and even thunderbolt. After that, what needs PCIe? I'm not keen in Mobile processors for audio since my experience has been throttling off the frequency...opposite of Turbo mode...and causing audio hiccups in the process. But these chips with eDRAM originally ...

Re: Capacity limit of DSP cards Scope 7 XITE 64bit, but HARDLY ANYTHING loaded

I know that Faxinadu had worked with S|C regarding sequencers in general, and found a fix for a.long time XITE issue that effected SB404 (sequencer) as well as Modular sequencers. The issue was that the devices needed to be assigned to only a specific DSP to work. I am guessing with "SB404 V2" the r...
