Re: ADAT connection

Andi means the mechanical 'click' you feel when you insert the optical cable ;) some connectors indeed don't fit very well into the back frame of the card a card may be positioned slightly asymmetric - can be corrected by untightening the card, insert the cable an re-tighten in that position or a di...

Re: Why does Sonic core Do No Marketing?

for years I've spent thousands on plugins (and that's not literally), just to see the suppliers go out of business... Scope has a technically brilliant background, but it just doesn't integrate smoothly into current DAW environments it's way too demanding... just consider DSP assignment on one hand ...

Re: Higen - long long float

yes, it was quite in the beginning and it seemed to me that it was some modulated noise source (which wouldn't be unusual for an electro hi-hat) but: I may have had a routing error on my monitors (as they serve 3 systems), will check again... the mentioning of Vince Clark or NewOrder was more for fu...

Re: connect Scope (14 dsp) with PCIe to PCI external enclosu

it's most certainly powered via USB-3.0 (checkout specs in Wiki) usual hint: I'd rather run Scope on it's dedicated XP box from a small SSD and connect it via Adat to a 'modern' machine this requires an additional Adat card, but also removes Scope's GUI handling from the DAW, which IS a big advantag...

Re: Higen - long long float

I'm not genre-savvy...
but there's also some touch of New Order and Vince Clark to it
did you intentionally leave the huge headroom ?
if listened with low level, it makes the track a bit dull
one single complaint: the noise hi-hat ... the rest is cool 8)

yes, it depends on sample and recording needs if I track vocals/guitar with microphones 1 hour is about 1 GB, adding 2 backing tracks would result in 3 GB total my biggest instrument is the Mellotron with 2GB, the guitar stuff about 1 GB, a couple of groove samplers with another 2 GB total but for s...

it's a (sad) matter of fact that the opposite is true - which has been discussed here years ago
the rest of the story can be figured out by checking who left the platform as a commercial developer

Re: 32 or 64 bit

impossible to answer: for Scope it's pointless as there's no 64bit processing involved (simplified) - it can run in any adress space if 64bit makes sense for you, depends on your native software, DAW and Plugins... on a dedicated PC without internet use XP would still be my favourite choice I don't ...

Re: Cheap (Really Cheap) Go Anywhere MIDI Setup

preferences may vary... ;) if I were to play 'keyboard' on the go I might get an Akai SynthStation 25 and plugin the old iPhone 3gs (the keyboard/dock is about $40, a 3gs starts at $30) and even with this 'world's lamest smartphone' I could record just fine - while the MidiPlus is restricted to soun...

80 bucks for a sub-XG quality box is just a rip-off imho, the MidiTech is obscene :D I don't get the cabling-mess argument... keyboard and headphone connections are always present the Midi box is an additional device, as could be any (outdated) iPhone or iPod there certainly is a decent (!) software...
