Re: Definitive Scope PCI card host PC?

I’ve found on an a good spec iMac with integrated graphics everything is fine... until I added a 4K secondary monitor. In full res there’s so many pops, clicks and slowdowns. It makes total sense, but a little annoying having to run a 4K monitor at half res. My next pc will definitely have a dedicat...

Re: USB Controller setup?

Great. Thanks all. I used MIDI-OX to solve the problem as it allows midi ports to be patched to each other by name. Works great now.

USB Controller setup?

I've been using a Mac for years and pretty much forgotten PC midi/audio setup stuff... How does a MIDI USB controller interact with Scope? Whats the setup in Windows (7) and then in Scope I'm presuming is a Sequencer Midi module? I've got a loopback device, but I can't figure out how to join it all ...

Re: Definitive PC?

Since my original post I had a funny five minutes and dug our my original old PC, pre my HP Xeon (recommended here). It’s super quiet based on an Asus A8n sli socket 939 Nvidia chipset. 1gb of memory, 128mb GeForce 6600 pciex graphics card, and a small 60gb SSD. Instead of reinstalling Windows (my n...

Re: Definitive PC?

Awesome thanks all. If I go this way then the Gigabyte mobo looks good. I've spec'd out a nice quiet system for around £760. Wondering if the 15dsp card will fit in the mobo with the other 2 smaller (Pulsar 1, Pulsar SRB). Now if the Xite were to receive an OSX version - I'd just buy that and sell m...

Definitive Scope PCI card host PC?

Hi All. Great to see v7 released. I’m thinking of bringing my 3 cards out of retirement. I want a modern quiet PC to house them running Windows 10. I’ve done the Xeon Win XP builds recommended years ago here; there must be a better way? There seems to be a few new motherboards that have PCi slots......

Re: 4x Scope 15 DSP

I've just received one of these from Tom. Superb service from him. Arrived really quickly and well packaged. Nice chap too.

Having 23DSP's is a revelation. :)

Re: Best "modern" PC for old PCI cards

Great. Thanks. For me quietness is really important. The old hp's seem to have a good consensus.

Re: Thinking of Selling Scope/ Pulsar II/ Pulsar 1/Ultra 16

I might be interested. Where are you based and what kind of prices are you thinking? If they're still for sale that is.

Cheers, mark

Best "modern" PC for old PCI cards

Hi Guys, I've recently rediscovered my old (bought it in 98/99 I think, I've still got the floppies) Pulsar and SRB cards. I was thinking of selling them and then memories of the Minimax and Modular started to flood back, not to mention the Timeworks mastering compressor... Oh and the Saturn... :) A...
