Re: from out of left field ... now with M1 chips, what about Scope 7.1 availability?

Jajajaja... Top music software developers are working at 200 mph to get ready for this transition. Others do it at 0.1 mph ... (checks the math), or they just don't. If SC had thoughts of doing it, I don't think it would be very wise to wait too long. The same are seen the ears to the wolf when Mic...

Re: Apple users desperately want scope.

Apple users want Motorola 68000 and PowerPc and Intel_x86 and Apple Silicon with backward compatibility, low latency, easy usability on designer hardware. They often end up with expensive, vendorlocked hardware playing only a subset of the WinTel-software catalog. I owned many of them, until I learn...

any good source for more presets ?

I have to confess that I love to klick though preset sounds of all my synths. So I get some inspiration about the potential of the synth and it's a good starting point, too. For Faxi's synths this is a real joy, but for some others only a few presets are available. Is there a good source to find mor...

I recommend to check all legs of all DSPs for shortcuts and disconnects. How do I do the latter? What I am feeling right now is that it should be a really silly something that is broken.... but the difficult thing is to find out which one exactly.

Re: from out of left field ... now with M1 chips, what about Scope 7.1 availability?

The M1 is the fastest - in class of CPUs with an identical powerlevel. It's not faster than modern AMDs, for example. We did some tests within the company which showed this. Nevertheless the host CPU is no big issue with Scope, as most of the workload is done by the DSPs. Looking at Ableton Live, wh...

Re: I am desperate with this one, please, give me a hand! Pulsar no working anymore...

I think the problem is some mechanical one. As the card worked before and you used a suitable spray, these options remain:

Some damage on the card like bent legs of the DSPs or some other broken parts.

Re: I am desperate with this one, please, give me a hand! Pulsar no working anymore...

As the cards show up in device manager, the pci-interface seems to be ok. Scope-SW talks to the hardware "behind" the pci-bridge, so this points to a problem on the cards. Be sure to use just one card in the PC to avoid interconnection problems. I saw a scope card in the past, where a leg ...

Re: micro delay for midi or audio ?

The ( newly learned ) delay function in 2448 mixer can do a max of 200 samples. If I calculate the max delay 1/48000*200 = 4.1ms. My problem is, that the delay from the VST-Adat-path is in the order above 6ms. ( The buffer of the RME-digi96 can go down to 256 samples, not less.) Is there a "lar...

No Midi devices visible in Scope7 Win10

As I wanted to test Cubase9 and Ableton10 with Scope7 ( Xite), I set up a laptop with expresscard to test it. Scope7 runs fine, but on Windows, there is no Midi interface visible, although scope project contains at least one input and output ( in cubase9, ableton10, midiox ). Within the windows-scop...

Re: First sound card.

Not really a soundcard, but one of the coolest cards IMHO is this one: https://bigbookofamigahardware.com/bboah/product.aspx?id=386 If you plug in an original SID of C64, you can use this chip on Amiga or PC to get the original sound. Unfortunately, there is no Midi-interface to a SID. Most "so...

micro delay for midi or audio ?

In my setup there are HW-synths, scope-synths and VSTs. The VSTs might be on a different computer than scope. ( connected by Adat ) All connections cause some latency, which I want to compensate somehow. One idea would be to delay each midichannel with a different delay. An other idea would be to de...

Re: ON HOLD:pulsar 15 dsp card for sale

@the19thbear:
I recently sold a P2-card to user interference, whos card showed pci problems.
As your card might have a defect on the piggypack-board, you could as him to send you his old card ( or at least the piggypack).
The piggybacks are the same for 6DSP and 14DSP cards.

Re: Scope on ARM (Apple M1)

RISC or CISC doesn't mean the instructionset is compatible. Intel is also RISC, as it decodes the instructions into microcode-operations, which are run through RISC-pipelines. RISC is the result of bad compilers, which don't use the full instructionset of a CISC CPU and was invented by Cray. Most co...

Re: Scope on ARM (Apple M1)

I think it was no good decision of apple to choose M1 with respect to the "full option PC" market. Many friends were pissed when apple left PPC and chose Intel. The only advantage was to run dualboot with windows and you could build a hackintosh. Changing the CPU family once more disqualif...
