Re: Help With Monitor

according to the description the monitor gets power and video data over a single USB3 connection. The included cable with power lumb is probably to connect it to devices that don't provide enough juice. 15 foot doesn't need an active extender imho - but the amount of power your PC provides on that l...

Re: Lost my Keys .rgy File in Hard drive failure - How can I generate a new one from my Scope Installation?

yes, that looks correct, now you just have to look for the other items... best of luck.
Otherwise write to support with you card's serial number and they probably have a record to send by mail.

Re: Lost my Keys .rgy File in Hard drive failure - How can I generate a new one from my Scope Installation?

Don't you have another copy of the keyfile around (on drive or even the keys sent by mail) ?
It's a regular textfile, whatever extension it has, and can be imported when Scope doesn't find the file and prompts for keys.

Re: VDAT MIDI CC control anybody? how?

Did you consider a trackball as a mouse replacement ? ;) There also might be screen automation apps that map mouse action to keyboard commands. With a gaming pad type keyboard this could be quite convenient. ps: I'm tempted atm to grab my BRC from the attic and try it with 5.1 (which I never did). I...

Re: VDAT MIDI CC control anybody? how?

According to my experience it's not the device itself but the Windoze runtime (or registry) stuff that stalls it. I had it crashing with my first 5.1 install on XP, too. Then got it working, now it's crashing again while loading dll files. My XP box had a lot of changes over time, so it's impossible...

Re: Midi to expression signal

You basically need a Wah-pedal with CV input...
as that's what the potentiometer in a regular Wah does: it adjusts a voltage over a certain range.
But I don't think 'real' voltage specs on regular pedals will meet CV specs. Are you into DIY ?

Re: MPA: A whole new Chapter for SCOPE and you are invited

Noone buys an Xite to run 'old Scope plugins', you want it for it's routing and rock-solid audio performance. Of course the synths and fx are welcome as a huge bonus... Moog released a Model D ($15) that runs on an iPhone 5s :D In fact I could cover most of my sound synthesis in IOS only and while (...

Re: BX Oberhausen

The idea of pan-spreading filters is indeed cool and was applied 20 years ago on the Koblo Vibra Synth on Powermacs. It's my only native PPC synth and the filter (actually a combination of the ones listed below) is handled similiar to the Solaris way. And plain stunning - as it's almost alias free. ...

Re: Only 1 pci slot would a PCIE To PCI Adapter Card work for second Pulsar 2

I'm not shure about that brand pictured, but I once had such an item (also cheapo) and it did work flawless. (but didn't have any influence on PCI throughput) The main problem with that thing is that it's designed for half-height cards - you have to remove the slot bracket to get a Scope card in at ...

Re: MPA: A whole new Chapter for SCOPE and you are invited

on all product pages most of the space is covered by housings and mounting parts, only 10-15% display processing 'gear'. Too many 'possibilities' and vague statements, few (if any) new facts, just that revitalizing story. I'll stick with my trusty old Scope and let it communicate via classic analog/...

Re: Acon Digital's Verberate 2 reverb

The Scope way of digital audio processing isn't related to the DSP chip used - in particular regarding reverb. ;) It's all about algorithms (the math part) and the ears to tell (very) subtle differences - I fail in both domains... I did a small experiment (because the UM1280 is a delay) and rebuilt ...

Re: Acon Digital's Verberate 2 reverb

Scope reverbs aren't 'bad' or inferior (to whatever) at all. The current Plate and Ambience are by Warp69 (I bought the original versions) and they certainly represent a stage in his process to model the LX480. Of course the latter got a few more years of developement and may be trusted as a virtual...

Re: Acon Digital's Verberate 2 reverb

I got the idea from the description, but didn't find the examples enough convincing to trigger the must-have button. (to be fair Soundcloud certainly blurs the results) But mainly it's in fact this toolchest phenomenon: in Windoze it's mostly Valhalla Room or Plate and the SawStudio Reverb, in MacOS...
