Re: How many kinds of USB-C™ to USB-C™ cables are there?

Indeed, waiting for the RPi 4 revision myself, as I would love it's 4K abilities (more than half the screens in my home studio now are 1440p or 4K). Also concur on the competing standards, but in this case the USB spec is known and comes from only 1 standards setting body! It used to be that certain...

I was thinking perhaps AMD, but who know...won’t do that until winter at least.

Re: PCI-e to PCI extender for Scope ( experiment going to be a solution :) )

Thanks, so a highly compatible motherboard plus one of these is an option for those who wish to go that route. I'm still running a P4 era dual xeon rig that is rather loud, largely due to being a SCSI based machine with 10k rpm drives. Being able to move that box to a modern low thermal solution wou...

Re: PCI-e to PCI extender for Scope ( experiment going to be a solution :) )

Since I've been reading this thread piecemeal and am at work, has someone been able to use this solution as a way to ADD more PCI slots to a system that has 1 working slot? Ie, your 'master' Scope card is in the physical PCI slot and these simply add 2 more electrical connections to expand your Scop...

Re: Ocean Swift STDM Cables possible production run

k500zm, start a new thread with your offer and we'll sticky it. I would ask that you disclose some kind of price and timeframe for turnaround, but exclude shipping obviously.

Good article from WIRED on AI 'recommended' feedback loops, from audience to creator to platform: The Toxic Potential of YouTube’s Feedback Loop (applies well beyond Youtube).

Re: Synth Boxes?

Virus was repaired, shipped in guitar boxes ordered from ULine (pack of 6) which I turned into a double walled box by using 2 and reducing the internal one a bit with my handy blade and extra string tape. Just got it back, safe and sound =]

Well, if nothing else it represents the US's bureaucratic cut on whatever the sum total of our 'information age' worth is, no? :D At least until we can be valued in Facebook's Libra, which some have speculated be a move to prevent destruction of your personal data for min. of 5 years, which also is ...

Disk imaging for your DAW

Back in the XP era, Clonezilla and Norton Ghost came along and made doing drive images possible. Between then and now, things have changed quite a bit. Clonezilla i s still around, and can clone whole disks just as well as always, and tools like Macrium Reflect (free) seem to offer windows native fu...

Re: HP xw4600 very hot

If there's enough clearance on the door, is it possible to cut a side fan? I didn't do this on my Scope machine ( which isn't that HP anyway ), but on one of my bigger dual Xeons I put a 120mm on the door as an intake because it blows across the PCIe slots, and it helped the GPU's I used to run on t...

Unless it's bulging noticeably, you may need to test them for the proper readings to determine which component(s) have failed.

Re: Combining Pulsar 1 with newer PCI boards in V7

I have used both DoubleDawg and " PCI Latency Tool " to set the PCI latency timer of my GPU (and Network card) under XP32. If memory serves, DoubleDawg was more reliable there, and PCI Latency Tool more reliable under Win7. Doubledawg is so old, I have attached it here for your reference, as I canno...

Re: Combining Pulsar 1 with newer PCI boards in V7

Honestly that sounds like the GPU is conflicting with your DSP card usage. Also, Via was never good for Scope if I recall... 1. Is that system AGP or PCIe? In fact what is the motherboard make & model? 2. What graphics card do you have? 3. What speed is that CPU? I *think* I have a Core2Duo E8500 in...
