    Controllers / Re: Controller performance

    That has been addressed in recent GUI versions.  As soon as we sort out one more thing, I'll be posting new host and GUI versions.  We have had a LOT of work done on both in the past 6 months, but there also have been some new bugs introduced, so want to make sure we get a solid release out.

    hmm good thing to bring up.  I've just added it to the request/bug list.

    While Dante, AES67, and even the DMX ARTNET can go over standard networks that are shared with other computers, there still is a reason to have at least your own VLAN.  When you start mixing a bunch of computers that might be doing gigabit file transfers, that *will* compete with audio packets.  Most people aren't going to want to set up all the QoS stuff, so it is just easier to just say, "Put this on its own network" when you are dealing with mission-critical stuff.


    Yes, you are right that it is getting harder to find things you can put full height cards into.  We are working on some networked audio stuff right now that will not require any card... More details once I have something more concrete to report.


    Yep, that's why networked audio is going to be the way it's done.  We are actively looking into this, and various options.

    In the mean time, look for "Tower" PCs - you will usually have a much better shot having one with PCI slots, or at least full-height PCIe.

    VIA has a pretty high latency.  I'd definitely go with a hardware solution over using VIA.

    They have these little 2 channel deals for just over $100 I think now...

    Weíve been looking at many options, especially since a windows update just destroyed one of my special audio test systems. Canít believe that people donít put up a bigger fight against MS just removing software that it feels like removing. That really makes win10 unusable for any serious critical applications. I guess that forces us to use something like their embedded versions.

    A Linux host could be as simple as an iso. There are quite a few programs Iíve used that come like that - burn the iso, boot and install. We are a little ways off from that. It would be very nice though to have a ďboxĒ similar to the Allen and heath designs that would have the host and some minimal I/o in it, expandable via network.

    AMP has lots of stuff going on simultaneously that use other available cores, but the main processing engine uses one core, because there is nothing else that you absolutely know can be done in parallel - it has to process things in a given order.

    Now if you enable the second engine, that will use another whole core for its work.

    The VST plugin support is still in the works, but we have priorities on a few other key items before release.

    The main engine does happen in one thread, but all the other things (like gui communication) occur in other threads. Also, if you are using the dual engine mode, that will run two parallel cores so that you donít take up any more significant cpu time.

    Hi Richard,

    I have not seen the X-touch one, but you can have a controller set to a channel
    Strip, and thus affect the currently selected channel. The BCR file is a great example of that.

    I was able to hack a DVS into giving me around 6-7ms of round-trip latency, which is about half of the normal value, but not quite certain it is completely stable.

    We are evaluating lots of stuff right now - just need more time to devote to more r and d.

    To stir the pot a little... what if AMP had built-in support for AES67, and didn't need a $1k Dante card?

    Hey Brett,

    Change the patch point first.  It won't display (bug), but it will take.  Now you can set the Channel.  Click ACTIVE, and you're set!

    Hmm, thought that was fixed. Back on the bug list!
