Hello AnalogJoe
I have an APIB USB ADAPTER that drives the System One. System Two & Cascade under ApWin 2.24 that runs OS from XP, Vista, Win7, Win8 & Win10. My next batch is due from my assy. house 31 Aug. I should have some overages after filling my back orders in Sept. http://www.sound-logic-la.com, duke.aguiar@ieee.org

Hey Duke, I already got one of those from you but I will be ordering another one soon, a friend of mine borrowed (stole?) mine before the quarantine, so I'll be needing another one.

Since there was talk of analyzers in the Cohen/Transamp thread I thought I'd update this thread. I've given up on using the iPad/iOS. There just isn't much available. I got a Microsoft Surface Pro3 used and I'm liking Windows 10 with touchscreen. Most of the analyzer software I've tried has dropdown menus and radio buttons. They are well suited to touchscreen operation. I have a keyboard cover for it but I'm thinking of getting a little blue tooth keyboard and touchpad so I can leave the Surface in the rack at eye level.

I got a BitScope first but that was a fail. The model that is currently available for purchase doesn't have their arbitrary waveform generator. It can't generate white or pink noise.

I got a Native Instruments Kontact2 USB interface. I've been playing with REW but it's slow going and I don't trust what I'm seeing. I need more experience with FFT and swept sine measurements to feel confident I'm getting accurate results in REW.

I recently got an Analog Discovery 2. I'm hoping since it has dedicated hardware I can get comfortable taking these measurements. It doesn't have a low noise floor but that's not a big concern until I feel confident in the measurements.

I was kicking around the idea of selling my AP P1 and getting a Sys1 with FFT. I've abandoned that idea. I bought the P1 new. It's been babied and I would get a quarter of what I payed for it. I also like the button per function UI. It took me a long time to be able to get around on it and I feel comfortable with it now. I have never used AP software and realized it would be a steep learning curve. I don't want a steep learning curve now.

It seems like all this stuff is coming down in price. The new Dscope is $3400. It's really nice. In a few years I expect there will be more options.
