Re: HEAT - How much of a problem is it for the XITE?

Wow, that's looking really nice! My rack is one of those closed kinds, that doubles up as a transport case, I guess it doesn't allow for enough ventilation. Now I have the XITE on a laptop stand, with nothing near it. The fact that it's tilted forward also reminds me of not putting anything on top :...

Re: HEAT - How much of a problem is it for the XITE?

OK, thank you for your suggestions. I took it off the rack and have it on a laptop stand on top of all the equipment. It's been running for 24h and still holding, so I guess it's the rack that lets the heat build up too much. We do get a lot of heat here, but right now room temp is about 24ºC, seems...

HEAT - How much of a problem is it for the XITE?

Hello Z! Last year, my XITE-1 unit started acting up, continually refusing to be master clock or accepting sync from anywhere. I sent it to SC, and got a new board installed. When I checked it (briefly), it worked, so I put it up for sale and stored it away. Yesterday, after I had an offer for it, I...

XITE-1 for sale + A16U

Hello Scopers! I am selling my Scope XITE-1 system. It was one of the first round of units sold, and it served me well for a few years. After some intermittent fails, I sent it to Sonic Core for repairs early last year, where it got a brand new main board. Since then, I only used it to check if it w...

Re: Audio Drop outs

I had the same problem on a windows 10 pc, audio dropouts every 5 minutes or so. I tried many things, eventually, disabling the LAN card on the BIOS sorted it. Not the best option, but I had already updated all drivers, went through the optimizations, Latency Checker, etc etc, but nothing worked unt...

Re: Scope 7 errors xite 1D win 7 x 64

I also get that error message on the XITE-1, but for DSP 7. I have other issues with the unit since Scope 5, which appear to be hardware related, so I can't really expect normal operation. I thought it also had to do with the hardware. But this message only appeared after installing Scope 7, and, if...

Re: STS Working in 64bit!

Great work, Faxi, I really appreciate it, and hope that SC can have a look at the research and maybe find a stable solution to include in Scope 7. I don't really use the STS much, and my XITE unit is a bit flaky, but I was curious, and managed to get it working by following the detailed procedures. ...

Re: No sound

If you go to view-samplerate, is any sample rate detected? Can you set it to internal sync? I've been having similar problems with my XITE-1, although the meters work, there is no sound coming out. It doesn't lock to internal samplerate. But I found out only yesterday that if I press the bottom plat...

Re: Can you control scope with this controller?

It's not a new concept. I have a novation nocturn controller, the one with no keys, only 8 buttons and 8 encoders. It also has a super encoder which will act upon the GUI element you happen to be hovering your mouse pointer on. It's not as useful as I thought it would be, and really not sure if it w...

Re: howtp sync vdat and a midi sequencer ?

Haven't done this in a while, but Cubase used to have an option to send clock via ASIO. One of the ASIO source modules in Scope has a clk pad, which can be connected to VDAT providing sync.

Re: Korg Prophecy 1995

I have both the prophecy and the Z1. Although they share the same underlying tech, they are totally different, the Z1 much more powerful, but the Prophecy is a joy to play. A bit tedious to program, but can do unique sounds

Re: XITE-1 - No sample rate on startup

But still....why ok on other pc.... I hinted at "luck", but am now leaning towards "heat". When I brought in the other PC, I had spent a few hours in frustration already, so maybe it was warm enough by then. When back to the original pc, all booted well. Funny, I've been making efforts to keep it c...

Re: XITE-1 - No sample rate on startup

I'll check with new cables tomorrow. What is interesting is that it seems to appear when the unit is powered up. After a while it turns AES/EBU off, and is rock solid for the rest of the day, so it seems to get better with heat.

Re: XITE-1 - No sample rate on startup

I can't solve the update problem, but it all seems to be related to the ZLink. Today I was having the same problem, no SR, and AES/EBU Led lit. I took off both Zlink cables, and the unit went back to Master, and working. Resetting the cables, first the zLink indicators light up, then the AES/EBU and...

Re: XITE-1 - No sample rate on startup

Both machines are connected to the internet. The Windows 10 is up-to-date, but the Win7 has a problem with the auto updater - it doesn't work anymore after an update :) Could be that, It was more or less about the same time the problems started.

Re: XITE-1 - No sample rate on startup

The other PC is also a laptop, so the EC card, cable, everything is the same. Different installation, though, and different OS, the one I'm working on is Win7, the other Win10. I tried it twice, and it worked, but it could have been luck. With this PC there's a chance everything will load correctly,...

Re: XITE-1 - No sample rate on startup

Hi Gary, thanks for the input. It happens when the A16 is both turned on or not- I didn't disconnect the z-link cables. Changing samplerate doesn't work, nor does reseating the Express Card. A bit more data: as the project loads, it begins with the correct samplerate set. On the samplerate settings ...

Been having a strange problem lately. I have an XITE-1 with an A16U connected via Z-Link. Whenever I turn on the PC, Scope starts, but it doesn't load the DSPs. Sample rate is never set, and DSP Meter shows 0%. If I reboot a few more times, it will startup and keep alive for the session, but it's er...
