Creamware Pulsar 2 2024

Post by Ziolek »

I have a dilemma. It's 2024, and I own a Creamware Pulsar 2 card. I will need to build a computer, and I'm not sure whether to build it around this card or give up on it and buy a new interface. What would you advise? Does this card meet your requirements with Windows 10? How does it work with FL Studio, and is the audio quality good without crackles and latency? It's been a while since anything was written about computer configurations. Could someone suggest a newer configuration with a PCI slot for stable performance? Thanks, regards.

Well due to the PCI slot requirement you will effectively be building it around the card, since motherboards with PCI slot have not been mainstream for many years. However there are always companies like this : https://adek.com/products/atx-motherboards-pci

There’s a button there where you can contact them for an online quote.

Hi, It depends on the state of your card, and what you need it for

there are socket 1150 and socket 1151 motherboards with PCI slots. these are old, but they support reasonably fast processors.

The card still works. I would like to create music in my home studio, recording vocals and guitar. It used to work under XP. It still works to this day, but I would like to upgrade a bit and get a computer with Windows 10 64-bit. Scope costs some money, so I'm not sure whether to invest in Scope v7 or buy a new interface. I know the card is worth little on the market, so I have a dilemma whether to keep it and build a computer that would run on an Intel i5 processor or higher.

"i5" is a big subject, but there are certainly socket 1150 and socket 1151 motherboards that run i5 and i7 processors.

You will need to ask a current FLStudio user (there are some here, not sure who at present) how well it works with Scope 7 right now. I would defer to GaryB as well. I haven't seen anyone complain about that combo so I can't comment on that further.

Scope7 will get you much further than otherwise, and support S|C to continue to develop it further.

The card itself is fine, pops & clicks are an issue 1-2 decades behind us, once the computer is properly configured. And what needs to be done in this era is minimal with a properly functioning system.

If I were you, I wouldn’t touch anything and just by a new computer, with a new audio interface, and link both systems

This is indeed how I have worked for decades, though I did upgrade my Scope boxes as the older machines degraded much faster than the Scope cards.

Has anyone here used a PCI-e to PCI adapter?

I used an older magma pcie to pci-rack with 13 and 3 slots. It works flawless, but the masterverb-test showed less verbs compared to a native pci.
