Being a programmer by trade I was extremely impressed with the
routing by point and click. It's like being in a virtual
studio on steroids but the whole room full of gear is on one screen
in front of you. That is, once you've set up all the physical
I/O in and out of the XITE-1 and/or PCI cards. Building user
interfaces for a living I'm constantly being tasked about
'user-friendliness' and the Scope routing window has that in spades.
The sonic capabilities are another world altogether. I really
liked some of the mastering tools such as Psy-Q, MasterIT and
Brickmaster. And the B-2003 gave a perfect rendition of the old
B3 and Leslie.
you're thinking of using Scope live?
Definitely. We've never had use for a PC before but adding a
laptop or a 3U machine which replaces a rack of mastering gear or
keyboards would ease the load in/out burden and simplify things, and
go a long way to perfecting our sound as well.
