Live Features

Imagine this: a professional digital console, a full rack of effects, a collection of high-calibre synthesizers, a powerful studio sampler, a routing patchbay and dozens of additional studio tools - all right inside your music computer. Working perfectly along with your favorite audio sequencer. And all of it behaves just like external hardware equipment: no latency, no delays, no overburdening of your computer, no installation headaches, no compromises in the sound quality department. The entirely unique SCOPE DSP technology makes all of this possible.

Furthermore, you can integrate external audio signals live: regardless whether they originate from a microphone, electric guitar, analog synth or 19" effects rack. The SCOPE Fusion Platform brings everything together. It's the ideal environment for your creativity.

  • Route your microphone live through the excellent MasterVerb reverb plug-in or send your guitar live through the SCOPE Platform's tube-simulation effects.
  • Route audio tracks from your sequencer in realtime through the 19" effects rack in your studio.
  • Integrate your external sound generators and effects devices live into the audio sequencer.
  • Work with professional monitoring during recording sessions - without the slightest ASIO delay.
  • Mix and route all audio signals in your studio within a single environment, without limitations.
  • Play virtual synthesizers and samplers really live. SCOPE eliminates the timing and latency problem, instead of just diminishing it.
Coordination with the Audio Sequenzer
All SCOPE Fusion Platform products have been outfitted with the newly developed Live Bar, from which the complete SCOPE setup can be controlled. You select synthesizers and samplers, dial in sounds, open mixers and set up signal routings - all from this central control spot. If desired, the Live Bar can be made to overlay your audio sequencer, so that you always have all of your SCOPE studio tools within quick reach.
SCOPE Fusion Platform systems are the ideal extension for any audio sequencer you may choose. Perfect coordination is ensured by the extensive driver set for Windows and Macintosh (ASIO 2.0, DirectSound, MME, tripleDAT, GigaSampler, Sound Manager and OMS). Furthermore, the PCI cards of the SCOPE Platform are equipped with the Ultra-Low-Latency Interface (ULLI), which provides hardware-based ASIO support. This makes latencies of as low as 1 msec possible! Audio drivers simply don't get any faster than this.
If you work with a VST-compatible recording program, you can also operate the instruments and effects of the SCOPE Fusion Platform from directly within that program. The XTC mode, which is a feature not only of Pulsar XTC but of all other CreamWare DSP systems as well, makes this possible. In this mode, you use the SCOPE studio tools exactly as you use VST plug-ins and instruments - but without placing any extra load upon your computer. The Direct Play feature even lets you play SCOPE instruments in XTC mode completely latency-free.
Main Studiotools Package
This assortment of mixers, effects processors and other studio tools is included in every SCOPE Fusion Platform system.* With the two mixers, you can mix all of your signals "live", regardless of whether they come from internal sound generators, external hardware instruments, audio tracks or VST instruments from your recording program. The special 5.1 surround mixer equips you superbly for multimedia or film sound productions.
Mixer Features:
  • STM 16 S: 16 channel strips, mixed to six busses (L, C, R, Ls, Rs, LFE)
  • STM 1632: 16 channel strips, individually mono/stereo switchable (up to 32 inputs)
  • 2 slots for insert effects per channel, two master inserts
  • 4 aux paths (pre/post selectable)
  • Switchable direct outs
  • Margin and peak meter displays
  • Settings can be stored as presets
  • Remote-controllable and automatable via MIDI controllers
  • The highlight of the high-calibre collection of DSP effects is the outstanding MasterVerb - most likely one of the best-sounding reverbs you've ever heard. So dense and smooth - you'd swear it was a big studio processor. Also included: various dynamics and modulation effects, as well as filters and a graphic equalizer. All of these effects are likewise live-computed by the DSPs and place no demand upon your CPU's computing capacity.

    With the Modular Synthesizer V2 you can also build yourself the instruments of your dreams! The system comes with a giant number of software modules which can be freely combined. You'll find oscillators, envelope generators, effects, pattern sequencers, filters and so on - in short, everything you need to construct synthesizers, drum machines, effect processors and more. Experiment and create your own personal sound!

    Hardware and I/Os   

    The PCI hardware of Pulsar II is every bit as innovative and efficient as its software. In addition to the power of the six SHARC DSPs, the Pulsar board features a flexible I/O system. Audio inputs and outputs, as well as a MIDI interface, are located on a daughterboard which mounts directly onto the DSP card.

    There are four such I/O options to choose from. Each of them offers between 20 and 28 I/Os comprising combinations of analog, S/PDIF, AES/EBU, ADAT and Z-Link* inputs and outputs. For ultimate sound quality, all I/Os work with 24 bit and 96 kHz resolution.

    The unique on-board Ultra-Low-Latency Interface ULLI allows for lightning-fast audio drivers. ULLI features hardware-based ASIO support and makes driver latencies of as low as 1 millisecond possible! Audio drivers simply can't get any faster.

    Furthermore, the Pulsar card is equipped with two S/TDM busses to facilitate smooth integration of additional SCOPE-family hardware. Thus, you can upgrade your system with extra DSP power and more I/Os in a highly flexible manner.
