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...

Re: Second Hand Gear (WTB/WTS)

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

Always the cynicist :D But that's a good role to have filled among us by such a worthy gent. 'Invisibility' is not my goal personally, but goals will surely differ in any selection of people hence our sometimes lively discussion. I am instead just looking for some measure of control over what inform...

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. And ronnie mentioned google in another thread, so I thought I'd give discussing this in its own thread a shot (please let's keep this informative, even if anecdotal, and let's no...

I'm in the US and I use: https://reverb.com/ (this site is great) Ebay for cheaper/noncritical items where a bad purchase won't cost me (you can pretty much skip buying synths on there) Gearslutz (a bit more reliable than ebay but I prefer to use escrow for large items) Craigslist (always for local ...

Re: Is it worth to use a pcie Adapter to connect a M2 ssd?

Reads will always be faster on SSD's, but note that not all SSDs have good sustained write speeds AND that many SSD's don't do as well at low queue depths for reads as they do at higher (meaning that they can often read separate parts of the ssd better than a single location, or concentrated locatio...
