New Software for All CreamWare DSP systemsAll systems now equipped with the same basic software (January 14, 2002)
The systems, Luna II, PowerSampler II, Pulsar XTC, Pulsar II, PowerPulsar and SCOPE /SP, are all based on the SCOPE Fusion Platform. Each product combines an extensive software package with a PCI card that furnishes the system with inputs and outputs (optional with Pulsar XTC) as well as DSP computing power.
Starting with version 3.1, all systems are equipped with the same basic software. Its central operating element is the newly developed Live Bar, which ensures seamless cooperation with any desired recording program. The entire SCOPE setup can be controlled from the Live Bar. You use it to select instruments, dial in sounds, open mixers and set up signal routings. If desired, the compact Live Bar window can be made to overlay your audio sequencer, so that you always have all of your SCOPE studio tools within quick reach.
This new approach to the integration of DSP system features now makes it possible to exploit the true advantages of DSPs even when using them in the context of a native audio system. Virtual studio tools behave exactly like external hardware equipment, software instruments can be played without latency and monitoring is done without a delay. It is also possible to integrate external studio equipment live into the audio sequencer. For example, you can route a microphone through the SCOPE DSP effects in realtime, or you can send audio tracks from your recording software out to an external 19" effects rack for processing and back again in realtime.
Other noteworthy features of the new basic software are the XTC mode, which allows the SCOPE studio tools to be used just like VST plug-ins, and a collection of professional DSP plug-ins. This collection boasts both recording and surround mixers, 15 DSP effects including the high-quality MasterVerb reverb and a number of additional studio tools.
In addition to the basic software, the systems comprise a set of appropriately tailored software packages and assortments of DSP plug-ins for mixing, effects processing, synthesis, sampling, mastering and signal routing. All SCOPE Fusion platform products are fully compatible with one other and very flexibly expandable. If you need additional studio tools, more I/Os or expanded computing power, the systems can grow along with your requirements.
Beginning in March 2002, all new CreamWare DSP systems will be equipped with the new SCOPE Fusion Platform software 3.1. Each package includes both a Windows and a Macintosh version. Owners of Luna, PowerSampler, Elektra, Pulsar XTC, Pulsar or PowerPulsar with version 3 software or higher can update free of charge. The update to the new software is gratis for all users of SCOPE /SP as well.
