Toraiz AS-1 Thoughts

i picked up a used Pioneer Toraiz AS-1 and have been using it with the sound tower le editor. Not sure how I feel about the sound. It hasn't quite grown on me yet / not clicking with it. I enjoy the Pro-5 in scope a lot and thought it would be nice to get a Dave Smith analog device. But i can't put ...

US Trade Mark / LLC Question

Hello All, Question, it's it worth going through the effort / money to a getting a trademark for your band name and setting up an LLC to protect yourself? I'm an amateur, planning to release some music, maybe play a gig or two, and don't expect to make much money/not a full time job. More of a hobby...

Re: Minimax vs Behringer Model D MP3 guess who is who!

i like the moog sound but wanted to try something different, so skipped the roland se-02 as well. the minimax fullfilled my moog needs. ended up saving and getting the deepmind 12. need to speed more time with it, havent had time to really dig into it. sounded fine.

Re: Minimax vs Behringer Model D MP3 guess who is who!

Yeah, No MIDI CC messages for the knobs / no patch saving prevented me from getting the Behringer Model D. I wish they put a little more effort into that area. I still may get one to fiddle with in the future. I wish I could get into the Native Instruments stuff, but they have a vibe that just doesn...

Re: Atx quiet cooling systems.

I don't get annoyed or...

Hmm. That's odd, the unit powered up. The only other plug I had close by was this one (unit did power on with this one):

Re: pci cards worth

15 DSP was going for over $400 USD 2 years ago.
pulsar2 maybe $250-$300 USD
If you bought non-bundled instruments / effects, you might be able to get more for the card.

Re: Revival of Creamware Scope/SP from 2001 (15 DSP PCI)

If you go the old PC route, another option is the Dell XPS 410. I'm using it with Win 7 - 32 bit on a Samsung SSD and Scope 7 with Cakewalk Sonar 6. Recently upgraded CPU to Q6600 and things continue to be smooth. It has 3 PCI slots, but you have to use metal snips to open it up a bit (cut out the h...

Re: Scope 7

Is there any benefits to upgrading to Scope 7 if I'm still using Win 7 - 32bit?
I'm running an old pc and everything has been going smoothly. Not sure if I should take the leap and upgrade to Scope 7 - 32bit.

Thanks!

Re: Allow me to insist on Arturia greatness!

I used to really like NI for Battery and Kontakt for it's workflow / ease of use. But then I bought an Akai and Emu and realized how much different my samples sounded and felt. To my ears, NI made my samples very flat. The Akai gave my drums more punch and oompf. The EMU added tonal warmth and a soo...

Re: Windows 10 + Sonar + Scope ASIO Hiccups

yeah, slight stuttering/sound distortion like a slight audio skip. I think it might be mostly fixed now. maybe i was hearing things last night? it seems a lot better today. Latest June/July update of Sonar Professional Scope Sample rate was 44.1 and ulli at 13 ms (2nd to last option) IRQ 16 had 4 de...

Thanks Gary! yeah, I'm going through the list again. sadly my bios doesn't seem to have a lot of those options. for ASIO, the pops and clicks have been eliminated. I'm left with just random stuttering now and then. might be environment or something. still investigating...
