Re: Fast Devpac Question...

Can you not perhaps 'unify' all the graphics into one file and index the necessary part?

That would at least stop the number of includes getting too out of hand.

Re: Fast Devpac Question...

Well, you will have to calculate the bytes of data that you 'include' and compare with the amount of RAM that you have (including the size of the code too).

This is easier if all the includes are the same size!

Re: Fast Devpac Question...

Actually, the limit for the number of INCBIN includes I expect would be more limited by your machine running out of memory than by any hardcoded number limit in devpac.

How many are you actually putting in then?

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

If you havent done so already, I would plan your SCSI chain too. Cubase CBX (well, the D5 version that I have) requires a certain size max partition and a certain HDD driver.

(512mb if on > TOS 2.x and ICD drivers is one of the 2 choices IIRC).

Re: New TT + FALCON/ST PC-like case.

Will this have the option of rotating to be a desktop? (I dont much like towers. Cant stack stuff on them!)

You may be interested to see what theyve done with the new Checkmate Amiga 1500+ case thats about to hit kickstarter:

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

Well, like I said, I dont know if I will be able to get the CBX units going with cubase, but Im more than happy to fall back on Breakthru 2 with the Replay 16, along with my SY85. Would have liked the sound to stay all in the Atari, but.. well... we will see. Similarly to you, I started off with a c...

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

Yeah, Im leaning towards setting up a Mega ST4 for best compatibility. I have a MSTE (which I think would have been the best option) but it doesnt want to boot up currently and the TT will probably not work with many of the audio apps I intend to use. (Tried Avalon and Breakthru 2 on it). Im not sur...

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

Ive just managed to dig out and attach my SCSI CD-ROM drive. Havent had time to even fire it up though :roll:

Im wanting to use it through plain TOS/GEM. I was going to use CD Writer Suite, however, if you know of a driver that works for this setup I would be interested to know Leech :shrug:

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

@Charles: I dont suppose you can use these SCSI3 drives JUST for the Yamaha CBX unit then?

@Atarieterno: The SCSI2SD units I have seen are quite expensive. Probably still better economy to use some old noisy 3.5" drives by the looks of it. :lol:

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

BTW, if anyone is struggling to find SCSI drives, I got a few of these from my brother out of a work server:

Not sure if they will be ok for a TT/ST/Falcon. Anyone had any experience with these re-badged Quantum drives?

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

All the audio recording devices I have for Atari can also record at 48 Khz: Yamaha CBX, Digital Master (Hybrid Arts) and ADAS (Plasmec Solutions). I was more referring to the bitrate. People ~10 years ago were using (a better dynamic range of) 24-bit. Not sure what pro studios are using nowadays. S...

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

You know what Leech? Ive been thinking of asking someone here about speed differences between onboard shifter and VME GFX cards.
Probably a bit too off topic if I explain why this is exciting news for me. Suffice to say, I would be VERY interested for any tests you can do in this depatment.

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

Also it's a bit faster than the TT's video output. Is this true? Im guessing that Cubase uses the VDI. In which case, is it quicker to send the data across to a VME card than it would be to use the hi res shifter? Does the graphics cards on board bit blit make a big difference to the speed then? (S...

Leech; why not try the TT hi res mode? Its more screen estate than that VME slot graphics card (unless you need the extra colours for music sequencers! :lol: ).

Re: MIDI Hardware/Software recommendations?

@Leech: Ideally, you could, with this CBX/Replay16 setup, sample in at 16 bit and record it back into the CBX unit. Make sure only to record 1 channel otherwise you will lose audio quality. Back in the day, I had lots of fun with Sequencer One which then became Breakthru/2, as it was pretty much the...
