Re: DMA overload?

Installed the ATI 4350 card and have the same issues. Works perfectly in DXD/PCM mode, but DSD mode is trash. Here are the screenshots. Belarc DSD Mode DXD Mode So Mark, what you're telling us is that all Pyramix owners with Mykerinos cards can not play DSD under Masscore? I know this has to be a jo...

Re: DMA overload?

Thanks Graemme,

I tried also an nVidia 9600GT and it didn't work. I'll go get a Sapphire card today from Fry's and try again.

Sphynx output change?

Before I upgraded to Pyramix 7 Masscore, when I would set the master fader to -14.5dB, the output of the Sphynx was 1.23v

After the upgrade, I have to set the master fader to -8.0dB to get to 1.23v

Has something changed in regards to output voltage that the software has changed?

Re: DMA overload?

Thanks Ricardo, O'kay... spent the past 6 hr. taking out and swapping cards. There are 3 PCI slots for the MKY-MB5 (2) boards. No such luck. Everytime there is a DMA overload on the MADI card, even with no project open! Have done a complete clean unstall/install of Pyramix/Masscore twice. There are ...

DMA overload?

Can not play/record DSD files. Pyramix 7 says DMA overload? Read the manual and says something is not configured correctly. Had this problem in 6 and just did everything in DXD mode and worked perfectly. I need to get this corrected soon since I have a backload of DSD projects to get out of here. Ev...

Yup.. tried to make it work for a couple of days. Had to end up creating a dual-boot system. I needed a 64bit system because of the very large hi-rez files I'm having to move around. It's a PITA!

Re: blu-ray authoring

We export our files from Pyramix into Sony Vegas/DVD Architect for Blu-ray authoring. Works like a charm!

Re: DSD 5.6

Thank-you Claude.. this is indeed great news. Can't wait to finally hear it. I know the Sphynx 2 that we're using is capable of DSD 5.6 as well.

DSD 5.6

Now that the Korg units have been out a couple of years, we see these files almost weekly. Is there any chance that we can at least listen to them (not being an octive lower) or be able to convert them to a lower sample rate for customers? I would love not having to use other programs such as AudioG...

Re: Discwrite compatability

What you need to do is find someone close with a MassCore system to let you try out some files back and forth so you know first hand if it will work for you or not.

Re: Audiophile cards

I would love not to have to play mainly 44.1/16, 96/24 and 192/24 material, but unfortunately that is the reality of the market nowadays. I've emailed a few record labels (e.g. 2L and FIM), which are know to use DXD, asking whether they would consider to sell downloads at DXD rates. They've seemed ...

Re: Audiophile cards

The converter they were using was the Pacific Microsonics Model 2.

It's good.. but I feel there is better out there (DAD, EMM, Playback Designs).

Re: Audiophile cards

It says there that they have written new Pyramix software and that it will be about $12000. They will be showing it off at CES.

This must be some aftermarket stuff. This guy Tim says it sounds better than what mastering engineers use! :D

Looks like Merging has entered the Audiophile market.

We'll be at CES at the Venitian 29-335 with our Pyramix workstation playing DSD/DXD files from various labels.

Re: Which Mykerinos version for DSD?

Or you can go with a MADI system which will do all PCM sample rates AND DSD.
