creamware master port (199?) isa card
« on: August 09, 2017, 12:21:08 PM »


Creamware recommend a minimum DX 2-66MHz processor with of 16Mb RAM and a fast EIDE PCI (or SCSI) hard drive, but significantly better performance will be obtained with a Pentium 100 or better and 32Mb of RAM. The reference PC is an Intel Pentium 200 with VX motherboard, 256K pipeline burst cache, 48Mb of RAM and a 2Mb Trio+ PCI graphics running 1024 x 768 pixels in 64K colour mode on a 17-inch monitor. The MIDI interface used is a Mark of the Unicorn MIDI Express external unit connected to the PC parallel port.

Windows 95 Build B implements 32-bit FAT to accommodate hard drives of over 2Gb and although this saves hard disk space by using a smaller cluster size, the disadvantage is that the hard disk has to work significantly harder and may slow down, causing performance loss in some HDR applications. To minimise this, go to Computer/Properties/Performance, and reset File system/Hard Disk read-ahead optimisation and Graphics/Hardware Acceleration to None.



• PC ISA card

• 4 channels in/4 channels out, configured as two discrete analogue and digital stereo pairs.

• Sampling Frequencies: 48kHz; 44.1kHz; 32kHz.

• Analogue input/output: unbalanced stereo line-in/line-out on RCA phono jacks.

• Digital input/output: optical S/PDIF (TOS-link)/co-axial S/PDIF, unbalanced 75(omega) RCA phono jacks/optional AES/EBU, transformer-balanced 110(omega) XLR.

• MIDI Interface: In/Out

• Time Code Input/Output: MTC or MIDI Clock.

• Analogue-to-Digital Converter: 18-bit, 128x oversampling.

• Digital-to-Analogue Converter: 18-bit, 128x oversampling.

The Triple board is also used by Creamware's TripleDAT system (£1249 including VAT; £1395 with AES/EBU option), which is functionally identical to Masterport but has the following additional features: Red Book CD writing; 256 virtual tracks; real-time DSP effects processing including Warp Mode (live throughput); Pan curves; Spectrum Analyser; Correlation Metering; Time Stretch and DAT- streaming archive/backup software.
