Re: expresscard to pci adapter

To date I've only seen Magma Chassis reported here as being mostly useful (even those have issues under load). The main issue has to do with how critical timing is for Scope cards. I am doubtful that will hold up under heavy use, but it's inexpensive enough I don't see what you'll lose by trying. Pl...

Ripper is correct, look for someone in your area that is competent in testing and repairing electronics.

Re: Plugin Latencies

Since you're in a digital environment, this is rather easy to test. I have used either a single square wave 'transient' (a single sample is not always enough depending on the device, as it may be smeared or oblierated by an attack stage or compressor opening etc), and a 'ramp down' where the initial...

Re: Pulsar -2 (6 SHARC PCI 32/33 ) w/ second Pulsar in tandem for 24 -32 Chanels of ADAT currently; v 3.1 (a,b & c) on X

Agree with Gary. In the era of SSD’s, especially one which can use a portion in SLC mode when overprivisioned, there’s not much time lost in a studio from cold boot. My concerns over thermal cycling a machine that has no spinning drives is far lower than it was for the hot machines of yesteryear too.

Re: New Xeon E boards support 3 PCI slots

I'll keep a watch out for the Xeon E (that is 6 cores) and see what the pricing is - but I've really got enough PCI slot boards now ! Thread ripper is AMD socket TR4 and yes an AM4 board with 3 x pci slots would be good - Ryzen 7 1800 X is a lot cheaper now The CPU is usually in a similar price bra...

Stay with Teensy! Or any other similar board, I love playing with these small things in my workspace. I have 2 NextThing TheChip's left in service here, 4 raspberry pi's from the first model up to a 3, and a box full of arduinos that have served as LED strip controllers and many other things.

Re: Bummer

Thanks for all the info on the C236's. If you can hit similar number of reverbs on your h97, then use that as a benchmark and that indicates that either one of the devices on the newer system is stealing cpu time (interrupt/DPC related) and not releasing in time, or that the PCI implementation (spec...

Re: Avoid Xite Scope crash

Didn't Jimmy say that the delays crashed his scope too with Xite under 64bit? On Dual Delay and Ducking Delay. But I’m not using them so no biggie. It is odd though that I can use any Delay from SpaceF, dNa, Celmo and evens Wolfs last century Matrix Delay w/ no problem. The new Scope Channel and ne...

One thing is certain, Scope as a real-time FX, mixer and MIDI Solution is incredible.

Fwiw if someone is interested in buying an iPad Pro, I would hold off a month or two for when the new models are launched & previous models will see a big drop in price.

Re: Pulsar -2 (6 SHARC PCI 32/33 ) w/ second Pulsar in tandem for 24 -32 Chanels of ADAT currently; v 3.1 (a,b & c) on X

Good question on the latter. As for device manager, he is seeing WAV/MME for the card in his Wavelab screenshot I believe...it’s on the first page. And my guess is that screenshot was taken before he raised the number of WAV ports to 20.l (it shows just 01 & 02). Certain old registry cleaners would ...
