Hi,

Really appreciate your help in taking your time trying to give me tips on how to get it working :D

I will need to load up the SDK later and have a try.

Today is another busy day for me :/

Thanks!

Hi guys,

I am just trying to make a basic project in the SDK. Oscillator hooked up to Pro Plate analog out. It is not making any sound! How does the SDK know which plate is on which card? I have 3 plates.

Thanks,

-Tom

Hmm, really odd.

My speakers are hooked up to the Pro plate for sure. I tried selecting the Z-Link plate and no sound either. I will play around. There are bunch of outputs there that are not relevant to my cards like Pulsar or something.

Thanks!

Got it to work! It's emitting a sound ahahahaha. I really really love it how it's realtime. You just connect stuff and you can hear the changes right away. No coding then compiling then testing the code like on an actual DSP.

The first updated Quick Start tutorial will be on www.scopesdk.com hopefully tomorrow.

Thanks guys,

-Tom

The website needs registration now. I am still looking for a good WordPress theme. I was told by a guy that knows a guy that the first rule of Scope SDK is you don't talk about Scope SDK. There are some resources out there, but you won't be able to find them on Google. We don't want Universal Audio to catch up in about 15 to 20 years. They won't anyways, according to the experience from their forums. They have absolutely no interest in creating synthesizers. I will not give them any more money. Their plugins do sound fine. I don't know how close the EMT 250 or the 224 sounds to the originals, but they do sound very good indeed.

Making a sound come out of the speakers was easy, but to control the frequency of the oscillator seems to not be working at the time. I must play around with it some more. The MIDI is set the the right channel and the attributes/variables show that MIDI is being received, but all the output variables are not changing.

Cheers,

-Tom

So,

I had a look at the ADSP-21065L user manual last night. It's very long, almost 800 pages. Most of the stuff I really care about is the op codes. It's not much different that a regular See Pee You, it just can do math a lot better/more efficiently. I skipped most of the sections like the serial ports and memory management. Anyways, no point looking at it for a long time. I'm pretty sure Scope development will not make you use assembler. C is a lot easier to write and will save you a lot of time. Oh, BTW. The chip can only address up to 128MB of external memory. So no need to cry over samplers on the PCI cards. I'm sure the new chip on the Xite-1 can address a lot more, but I don't know. I haven't read the manual for the new chip.
