Re: Lack Of Focus

I definitely hear you. I'm basically in total quarantine because I'm in the high-risk category. Since late March, I've been in my home studio a lot. Mostly practicing piano on my Kurzweill via Pianoteq on the Scope box. I dusted off my KORG PA600 just for fun. I had to re-learn everything KORG works...

Re: Security & Privacy with technology in (2018 and beyond)

I haven't tried this yet but it's not biased like Twitter or Facebook.

It was recommended highly to me by an in-the-know colleague.

Re: Security & Privacy with technology in (2018 and beyond)

Thank you for such detailed information. I have been using Kaspersky Password manager with great success. Your social media tips are invaluable! Since 2006 I have been saying that Google is a front for the NSA and CIA. I have worked for too many Alphabet Swamp agencies and I finally resigned almost ...

Re: Wanted: Scope Pro or Pulsar2 PCI

There are like 20 of them of which the two on the edge are bigger. I connected a digital multi meter across the contacts and got a reaction from all but 3. I don't know if that's a good test. None of them were shorted but it seems to me, while very inexperienced in testing capacitors, those might be...

Re: Wanted: Scope Pro or Pulsar2 PCI

Hmmm. I only see two big caps along the edge. Are those the only ones I need to replace? If so, I'm pretty sure I can carefully do that.

Gary, I appreciate the quick relies, as usual.

Re: Wanted: Scope Pro or Pulsar2 PCI

I got the shotgun part. There's no way I'm going to source and replace all those caps with the risk it might not even work. I think I can test a capacitor using a digital multimeter without removing it from the board. If there is zero resistance it is dead. I'm more comfortable with that but it will...

Re: Wanted: Scope Pro or Pulsar2 PCI

The first message I get is "Pulsar2 (board 0) not found". Then the above screens. The drivers reinstall no problem. Separately and with a full Scope V.5 reinstall. The reinstall is a hassle because I have to recreate my screens and delete anything Pulsar to work. On the bright side, it's one less IR...

Re: Wanted: Scope Pro or Pulsar2 PCI

They all look good to me. Is there anything special I should look out for? I did notice, when I went to remove the small board, to clean the contacts, that one of the four plastic screws had the head missing, but the other side was fine. No problems I can see on that one either. I decided to give it...

Wanted: Scope Pro or Pulsar2 PCI

My Pulsar 2 started to give me troubles and now I believe it is gone forever. I am looking to replace it with another Pulsar2 or Scope Pro. If anybody knows if it can be repaired that would also be appreciated. I can't see any physical damage. It began working intermittently recently and I tried eve...

Re: How to optimize windows 10 for Scope to avoid clicks and pops!?

why not use win7? MIghtyclub, I'm gonna spare you the pain from trying to install Windows 7 on your Asus Prime h370 plus mobo. Windows 7 is not supported by newer hardware anymore, so you can't install windows 7, unless you want to jump through even more hoops and new PITA problems. Oh my! Any othe...

The brand name "Microsoft" is cursed. Probably would be a better product if it was called "Megahard".

Yup. Must have saved millions of dollars since I got my PCI cards in 2003. I'm not kidding!

I've had a Luna, Pulsar and Pro in various boxes since 2003. I stick with Windows 7 Pro now in an old HP XW-4600. This is a daily driver. My only sound unit outside of a Windows 8.1 Pro Intel I7 clocked 3500 Ghz laptop for Cakewalk and VSTs. The laptop is pretty new and handles the DAW and VSTs CPU ...
