In terms of mixing functionality, SCOPE’s initial release includes a channel mixer with 16 program and eight auxiliary busses- additional mixers can be added via software to extend these capabilities. Learn how and when to remove these template messages. Recording applications, for example, require a lot of computer resources. The hardware Creamware created was among the first linearly scalable DSP systems, with expansion DSP boards being offered to increase the processing power of the platform. By adding an external hard-disk recording system – SCOPE currently communicates directly with E-Magic and similar systems, and will in the near future directly address Pro Tools – a truly integrated “virtual studio” can be created to control all recording and production functions. Views Read Edit View history. The name alone is impressive, standing for SC alable O bject P rocessing E nvironment, an electronic “Erector Set” for the next Millennium, if you will.

You crexmware to let the thing warm up for a half an hour before you could actually play it. By adding an external hard-disk recording system – SCOPE currently communicates directly with E-Magic and similar systems, and will in the near future directly address Pro Tools – a truly integrated “virtual studio” can be created to control all recording and production functions.

Running at a master clock speed of some 60 MHz, the total power per board approaches close to 2. Z-Link is a proprietary communication interface using standard Firewire cables Z-Link creamwsre the simultaneous transmission of 16 channels of bit audio between the soundcard and converter without having to use a separate word clock device. Each project configuration can be cfeamware and retrieved later.

If you’ve never seen one, click here. The SCOPE environment is remarkably simple, intuitive to handle and doesn’t require a degree in rocket science to [develop] breakthrough audio designs.


Creamware (software company)

Clients looking for fresh new sounds or familiar old ones can pull up interesting patches with a few mouse clicks. Via simple drag-and-drop functions, these and other icons can be moved onto the control surface and connected to audio modules, along with their specified range settings. If there’s a hardware effect or stomp box you’re familiar with, most likely it’s covered here in virtual “plug-in” form. A first assessment by Mel Lambert.

It’s a powerful and flexible audio processing and music development system.

Minimax, Pro, B, Vectron 3. This product is designed to provide a variety of audio functions including virtual synthesis, sampling, effects svope, mixing and studio signal routing. Or the effects can be routed through the aux busses like a normal mixer.

These cards are used to create synthesized sounds for audio production in music and other audio environments. There are a number of third-party developers producing plug-ins for SFP some of which are actually free for the taking. The Creamware Modular Synthesizer has gone through a number of revisions, each adding more modules and greater functionality.

CreamWare SCOPE Overview

Zooming functions allowed creamwar to zoom-in on fine wave form detail, then easily return to a position where the user could gain a complete overview of their work. Modular III was a modular synthesizer running on DSPs digital signal processors, a type of computer chip designed for signal processingas part of the software environment provided for the Creamware ‘Scope’ line of sound cards.

The supplied library contains both finished applications, plus component scoppe. And, being totally scaleable, SCOPE can easily accommodate more “energetic” software as it become available, without the system being rendered obsolete. Arpeg 01, Inferno, Lightwave, Prisma.

And SCOPE’s extensive graphics-based toolbox allows the user to combine and configure various library “modules” with external hardware to create custom solutions. Each device or element appears as a separate box with it’s own inputs and outputs.


Inthe company was acquired by some of the original product engineers who are now doing business under the company name Sonic Core. Virtual effects can be loaded into the mixer channel inserts allowing for individual effects processing on each track. Following is a “short list’ of the available devices that come standard with Scope:.

I’m not a synth guru but this stuff sure is a blast to play around with. Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. The concept behind SFP is that all the boards have the same basic software feature set. All internal busses are bit, with floating-point processing and eventual support for 96 kHz sample rates. The later revisions versions 2 and 3 took greater advantage of the fact that a software implementation can have elements not available to in hardware, such as the ability to provide bespoke user interfaces, and also added a number of new modules with each release.

What makes your mind leap sideways, however, is the exceptional amount of thought that went into developing the programming environment so that non-techies like you and me can easily and effortlessly design our own, application-specific. It had modules covering many aspects of sound synthesis, designed by Creamware Audio GmbH and by other designers. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.
