Re: Sonic Core A16 Ultra broken?

I liked the rack distributor that came up in another thread. Barring that, there are PSU's available with bare wire connections as project PSU's. Trick there would be finding a unit stable under load within good tolerances.

Re: ScopePro inactive after starting Scope software

Sounds more like solder or a transistor style connection, but could be. Caps are usually to buffer power supply, both to keep the continuous current going (like between DC up & down cycles, or when another component draws quickly) and to prevent fast bursts from affecting other things.

Re: ScopePro inactive after starting Scope software

So electrical connection is eventually made, somehow (thermal expansion in other words).

Re: ScopePro inactive after starting Scope software

Caps, potential solder joints, possibly other components. You can use a search engine to find examples of leaky & bloated caps but not all dry caps are clearly visible.

Have you also cleaned the PCI contacts and reseated the I/o daughterboard?

Not OB-Xa or Analog Synth related, but these might be worth a look for freebies:

Re: Multitrack from DAW to STM 4896

This is well documented in the manual, and you can find videos on Youtube from people discussing their workflows where some of this will be visible. Also check out some of the default projects. That being said, I'll answer your question: There are two types of I/O modules in scope: - Software i/o mo...

Re: Tasty new Ob-Xa Clone

There are 4 circuit based filter models, which are quite good. In practice using it is much like using Kontakt, although it's not quite the same in terms of the depth of sample manipulation and layering of course (though you can of course layer instances as with any VSTi). For someone who has Omnisp...

Re: Loptop for sonic xore xite-1

I'm inclined to agree. While I don't have an Xite, I am a professional 3D Animator & video guy (as well as audio bro) for 25+ years now and I use separate machines for each task. Audio & Video both do best with a moderate number of high performance cores, but audio tends to need PCIe/USB (and Thunde...

In the same way I would refer to this IK Multimedia Syntronik as 'Not that Sample Crap' - but hey here it is - on special at $70 bucks if anyone wants a cheap - quick - all in one classic synth solution (including the ...

Re: What are going prices?

Prices are determined somewhat by the i/o configuration, and then the keys included but that's only if there's something that's sought after and hard to get now AND you have the installers for it (or a higher end available plugin).

Re: Is anyone who tried to connect loptop with xite-1 by thunderbolt connection external express Card reader?

Why would you think that Sonic|Core can afford to test every combination of equipment out there? This is a relatively small product line compared to buying a new GPU or other computer component, and so the number of tried & true combinations of hardware we can reference for you is limited to the com...

It's not necessary to post to so many threads. People aren't responding because we have a userbase that has been established for 20 years, and so many of our regulars only check here periodically. If you're in a hurry and aren't getting the response you need, why not reach out to Sonic|Core support ...

Re: Partition disk question for Mac users

Using the wifi slot will technically work because it's an M.2 PCIe slot, but it's likely going to be slower than PCIe 3.0/4.0 by a wide margin, and might even be 1.x (wifi & BT don't need more bandwidth for the generations used in that macbook pro). I didn't find that info on a cursory search, but w...

Seems to be a popular thing to clone right now, DiscoDSP has a https://www.discodsp.com/obxd/native & iOS version as well, and there's a few freebies I've seen recently as well.
