Re: Card test program

Sigh. My Pulsar2 died a couple of months ago. I tried everything but no joy. Was able to get one in like new great condition (in the box) from Berny Shoes at a great price as well. I mean it was like losing a family member and have them come back room the dead. All is well. 17 years for everything e...

Re: Now I've seen it all....

My favorite button has approaching police sirens in wide stereo that sound like they stop right at the door. Well, it used to be.

Re: Will Scope work on a 4K display?

I have astigmatism which normally doesn't affect me too much but when at the computer the glasses make everything look good. I got graduated lenses to accommodate the upper and lower monitors. Works perfectly.

Re: HP ProBook 4740s Notebook graphic card question

I use a custom laptop from Pro-Star with the Intel HD 4600 chip and an nVidia GTX 770M GPU. Second monitor is a 27" Asus. Third is a 24" Dell. You just select which app you want which GPU to use, or default to either across the board. I turn off all the 3D PhysX stuff and all the anti-isotropic stuf...

Re: Pianoteq Pops ASIO?

One Drive? Never touch the stuff! I'm on 8.1. Pianoteq only has preset levels of polyphony, 192 is not an option. I'm set at 256. Multicore is fine. Core Parking is disabled. Removed all Wave modules. Also removed unused SP/DIF. Better but not 100%. I increased the ULLI so the Pianoteq buffer is 512...

Re: Pianoteq Pops ASIO?

Sure. MIDI Merger, MIDI Monitors, 2 Optimasters, B-2003, STM-1632, MV Classic, 1 WAV source, 2 WAV outs. 30% across 24 DSPs. I'm thinking MIDI Merger 4>1 or MIDI monitors? Running Process Lasso, machine is tuned perfectly. The only CPU usage is SCOPE and the Pianoteq. Sample Tank has no issues with ...

Re: Mingus & Coltrane

Scope FX/Mixing. It’s all one pass recording in stereo. Too many cracks/pops when I use software. Reason for that is use Kontakt for OrangeTree EPiano, PTEQ and Keyscape LA Clsssic Rhodes. Layering makes software recording mad I think...🤔 dNa FX Rack using Pitch Shifter for random modulations. I ki...

Pianoteq Pops ASIO?

It could be the latest update to Pianoteq but this issue has been bugging me for a while. Every so often there are random pops. I tried various presets in it and no profit. I tried adjusting latency in Scope. No Joy. Tried different MIDI sources, files, and controllers. Nada. It works perfectly on m...

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...

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: 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...

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...
