Re: 96 KHz

This whole discussion has been done here before, but it's important to look first at why samplerates were a thing to consider in the early days of the digital workflow. The first digital recording devices worked at 48khz so that they could shift the combined artifacts of the decimation filter (which...

Re: 96 KHz

Not faster HDD or more RAM, less bottlenecks and more responsive system. But..., how do you achieve it without upgrading? I don't see it. Less bottlenecks means upgrading, doesn't it? Well that would depend on the system you currently have, wouldn't it? Bottlenecks may come in the form of system dr...

Re: 96 KHz

Not faster HDD or more RAM, less bottlenecks and more responsive system. DPC latency calls start to have more impact, you might buy an SSD only to find that it has certain latency issues on writing more than a certain amount of data, RAM can help if you’re for some reason swapping to disk...

Re: 96 KHz

It depends entirely on your plugin load, whether native or VST. With over sampled plugins the increased load will be less, assuming they respond to the higher sample rate appropriately (4X oversampling @ 48Khz =2X @ 96 for instance). The reduced latency can be nice for the live recording side of thi...

Re: About Scope upgrade

What he means is that 'changing the order of your cards' was interpreted as 'i made a different card the first one seen by my system', either by rearranging the cards in their PCI slots or via editing CSET.ini. In which case the 'new first card' now has priority over the Scope software, but all card...

Re: Security & Privacy with technology in 2018

Please don't take my information as fear-mongering. I just think it's good to limit what we expose when we're online. Our lives are complicated by business analytics finally turning its attention to everything we do in life. Analytics & Statistics have LONG been a part of business of course, but nev...

Ebay is untrustworthy for large audio purchases, the number of synth scammers tracked on Gearslutz alone shows this.

Re: Cakewalk for less! SONAR is Freeware now!

In regards to Cakewalk coming back, I think it's a sign of the times when a mobile app developer 'rescues' what was once an expensive flagship DAW and offers it as a way to get more users on their mobile platform. And I agree with the sentiment that development overseas costs a fraction of what it c...

Security & Privacy with technology in 2018

Facebook has been getting some attention for certain 3rd party actors in their network, especially in relation to voting.
