Re: PCI Express x1 to PCI/PCI-X Adapter Card

OK I'm going to try this out, I've ordered one of these PCI riser boards: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255022730528 I've also modelled an external case for my two Pulsar IIs from bits I found on thingiverse: https://i.imgur.com/qFpmr9i.png https://www.tinkercad.com/things/l8xkVtFlF0h-sonic-core-pulsa...

Re: Stereo Expander

usually if it's mono compat then it's converted to m/s and any haas or other frequency based time-shifting is done only after decoding the 'side' back to L & R (M+S & M-S). Easy to tell the ones that are NOT mono compat... In the case of our Scope one I'm not sure but I'd be interested in a...

Stereo Expander

Hi Guys

What does the Stereo Expander do exactly to a stereo signal? Does it mix some of the left signal to the right and does it split mono and stereo information?

Seems to be mono compatible but I would appreciate knowing what it does exactly.

Thanks

i would NOT have v5.1 and v7 installs on the computer. you will certainly have problems when files get loaded from the wrong version.
Just put them in different folder locations

I guess so seeing it’s DSP based but I’m sure Gary can confirm it.

Re: 32bit INTEGER ASIO drivers

In other words, the difference between passing 24bit INT audio (the mantissa or significand portion of the floating point value from a 32bit FLT value) and 32bit INT audio (the significand from a 64bit FLT value) is below -144dBf. There were many discussions of 32bit FLT vs. 24bit INT in year passe...

DAW or Scope first?

I find that the DAW hangs on occasion when loading after Scope due to the audio drivers. Could someone expalin what is going on?
Is it better to load Scope after the DAW?

it is whatever bit depth that the sequencer is running.
How does that work Gary? I thought the DAW slaves to the audio card drivers.

Re: 32bit INTEGER ASIO drivers

I mean a 32bit integer ASIO source and dest, additionally to the existing 24bit and 32bit float software IOs. It would be a dream to move audio to and from Nuendo in 32bit integer. Don't know whether it is possible to program such a 32bit integer ASIO software IO yet. Aren't the ASIO 2 Source/Desti...

Re: Scope plugins and signal levels.

Well, it could matter, and Music Manic has a valid question. Some 'Analogue Modeled Plugins' or whatever they call it, do depend on the levels you feed them, just as the original hardware would. As opposed to most plugins where -18 and +18 equal 0. Vintage compressors and EQs that color the sound d...

Scope plugins and signal levels.

I know some analogue modelled VST plugins are designed to operate at a -18dBfs, 0dBvu level so are scope plugins like Vinco etc designed the same way of is db level not a factor?

Re: Scope D/A A/D build

I have two O?S setups. One is on a SATA HDD and the other a SATA SSD. Because I have a few SATA HDD’s I get an Ataport.sys latency due to the read/writes I suppose. I’ll switch off most drives and use just one of the SSD/HDD to compare.

Re: Scope D/A A/D build

So, when a 16 or 24bit WAV/AIFF is loaded into a track in your daw, that data is now going to be 32FLT (or 64FLT in Studio1 and Logic and other DAWs that are now processing at this level of precision). When summed into the master bus or to an output, this is also done at the same precision. Then wh...

Re: Scope D/A A/D build

I think things must be better now with DAWs but processing definitely can affect things if done incorrectly.
