I don't get annoyed or...

Re: power supply plugiator

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

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...

Re: Windows 10 + Sonar + Scope ASIO Hiccups

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...

Anybody have a Roland Integra 7?

Does anyone have a Roland Integra 7? and what do you like / dislike about it? I've been listening to demos and such on soundcloud and youtube and can't really tell if I like it or not. The synth sounds fine but some of the orchestral don't sound quite right to me. Flat sounding? Oddly the xv 5080 so...

as an amateur musician, i've loved how logical, easy to use, and powerful scope has been. the more i dig into it, the more possibilities and cool things keep coming up. for me, it's been both an instrument and an educational tool on synthesis and mixing. it's changed the way I do things / think abou...
