Reason and Scope. In the meantime Scope
developments have gained momentum with contributions from the likes of

Scope 7 itself brings improved compatibility with the latest Windows
operating systems, several new devices, improved XITE DSP allocation and
other optimisations. And of course the legacy PCI cards are still

candle burning over the last couple of years by bringing to market some
great looking and sounding equipment racks brimming with versatility in a
compact and easy to use form factor. Oceanswift continue to
amaze with a growing array of original devices and DAS have released an
updated version of MasterIT.
