if Im running Scope PCI and Scope XITE on the same system, then I have to buy it twice yeah ( eg in order to run it on both). If so, and I decide only to upgrade 1 then should be no prob to run Scope 7 on XITE whilst running Scope 5.1 on PCI ?

the same bad news for 64bit XTC, but it's likely that will get fixed this year, as well.

Congrats Holger! Tremendous accomplishment and will power to finish the job after all these years and setbacks. The future is bright! A lesser platform would have crumbled but Scope is mighty and conquers all!

Anyone even remotely thinking about ordering an Xite needs to jump on the insane price being offered right now!

OMG, that would be SOON in deed ... :lol:

no kidding,-

I didn´t expect SCOPE v7 coming before Musikmesse 2018,- so for me it´s absolutely amazing reading it´s out already !
I´ll buy it twice, for PCI and XITE-1 and I´ll do soon as well,- but I also have questions left ...

let´s begin ...

1.)
I read,- "PC with Microsoft Windows up to Win10".

Does that mean, SCOPE v7 still runs on XP,- or does it urgently need Win7 now.
Not a dealbreaker but I wanna know ...

2.)
New ASIO driver,- but WAVE driver doesn´t work in 64Bit up to now, bugfixes incl. MIDI CC permanent storage and reliable recall promised for the near future and so on,- all good.

But,- what´s about (XITE-) hardware compatibility w/ mobos using processor sockets 1151/ 1151v2 and 2011-3/ 2066 as also Intel chipsets z170 / z270 / z370 / x99 / x299 ?

Is there a solution/ improvement or do we still need z97 for best data thruput and performance ?

For me, that´s very important because I originally wanted to build an all new machine for SCOPE v7.

1. still works in XP with sp3. sp3 is needed because of the driver signing algo. XP still sees the driver as unsigned because it doesn't recognize the newer algo, but it works fine.

2. i don't know. it's not like everything can be tested. we'll have to see. my guess is that everything is fine, since the driver is win10 compliant.

This thread should be renamed to “Holy F@CKING SH!T, It’s game on for Scope7!!”

I try to install but ...

at driver installation stage I have :
Found "Sonic Core Pulsar 2"
ERROR InstallDriver returned-2

Is it my Luna which is a problem ?

Ok If you've got like me windows 8.1 you have to run setup v7 in 'compatibility mode' Windows 7 :D

the setup is compatible with windows 10 and windows 7 but not with windows 8 and 8.1 ??!! Let's found the error :roll: :lol: :lol:

The good news : Guitar Pro 7 recognizes scope 7 :) (not compatible with scope v5.1)

The bad news : Notion 6 doesn't ...

And ordered! Fair price too. I must say I'm not looking forward to the computer hassle that might come with it, but the plunge will be worth it.

That´s excellent news !

I just asked because of the following ... quote:

"Release Notes Build 1705 ...

... SCOPE v7 is compatibility and optimizations related to Windows 10.


The Hardware Driver, ASIO and DSP system layers have been adapted and improved, as well as the resource management."

Now I wondered what "Hardware Driver" means in this case,- accessing external hardware devices being connected to PCI card or XITE via ADAT, AES and other I/O decives, MIDI included,- or something being computer hardware (CPU socket/ chipset/ PCIe-bus/lanes) related ?
This, running SCOPE v7 standalone and no ASIO in the ballpark.

And ... Holger does almost all the programming of SCOPE v7 ?
If yes, which machine configuration is he using to run SCOPE/ SCOPE SDK v7 for development and bug fixing.
Until I read the opposite, for me there´s still hope they might use at least one of the z170 or z270 machines w/ Win10 already.

If yes, your guess from above post might be correct.

If all "Z" users would ask to his favorit audio stuff media or forum to spread the good word to the world ! That would be nice ! 8)
cool :-)
Unfortunately, I didn't see any news on Audiofanzine since that...... But now 7.0 is out, I going to contact them again. :)

And if S|C could lend a Xite unit to them, they could make a testing video in french to show to french music producer what is the power of Xite-1 + Scope ! Maybe someone could write to Holger ? Someone who knows him (more than me, at least...) and try to persuade him to lend a unit to Audiofanzine guys (like all other audio manufacturer do), they'll send it back to him and he'll certainly have some new customers...
Holger has for sure 1 or 2 Xite units for demonstrating...

- unison
- 3 additional filter types - minimax, pro1, pro5 (+ the original prodyssey)
- mild distortion
- second filter now switchable between hp/lp
- drone mode
- 4 fx slots
I wished they implemented at least 2 original ARP Odyssey filters ...

History:

a) Odyssey model 2800 w/ 4023 12dB VCF

b) Odyssey model 2810 w/ 4035 24dB VCF which was too close to the MOOG filter design, requireing a final revision:

c) Odyssey model 2811 and 2813 w/ 4075 24dB VCF which unfortunately sounded duller than a) and b) ...

d) Odyssey models 2820 - 2823 w/ improved 16KHz frequency response and hardware-upgraded 4075 24dB VCF

I guess we have d) as the original filter in Prodyssey and it would be great to have the 12dB 4023 from the "white" Odyssey too.

No revolution in this v7 but if it's just the beginning , it's funny to see SC moves again 8)

Pro Tools 12.8.2 and cubase 9.0.30 runs well with it :)
