    Is there any negative stuff about using "prologlt" (lite) and epiloglt_k1 (lite) in the DSP, instead of the original prolog and epilog?

    Howcome they don't use any resources, and the original prolog and epilog does?

    Greatful for reply...

    ---

    I've just discovered that there isn't the same inputs in epiloglt as in epilog...where is the analog center/sub and headphones "input", for example?

    Well, the more I look at the lite versions, the more confused I'm getting :)

    Please, someone explain...

    If you edit their source code, you'll notice that those "lite" versions are non-functional.

    They are functional, but they lack the links to the faders in the mixing console and they don't save the cable connections you made to them, so you can use them, they are just the ports of the EMU10Kx, but you have to restore the connections to epiloglt everytime you restart your computer.

    The versions bundled with 3534 are non-functional. You can connect to them, but they don't actually do anything.

    epologlt_k1:
    Code:
    ; Generated by kX DSP Editor - microcode dump
    name "epiloglt_k1";
    copyright "Copyright (c) Eugene Gavrilov, 2003.";
    engine "kX";
    created "05/11/2003";
    comment "epilog lite - no resources used";
    guid "85e97848-0004-4006-a500-5a6a03b1bf09";
    ; Registers
    	input ac97_l, ac97_r, spdif0_l;
    	input spdif0_r, spdif1_l, spdif1_r;
    	input spdif2_l, spdif2_r, spdif3_l;
    	input spdif3_r, recl, recr;
    	input rec_mic, out_13, out_14;
    	input out_15, asio0, asio1_cnt;
    	input asio2_lfe, asio3, asio4;
    	input asio5, asio6, asio7;
    	input asio8, asio9, asio10;
    	input asio11, asio12, asio13;
    	input asio14, asio15
    
    ; Code
    
    end
    prologlt:
    Code:
    ; Generated by kX DSP Editor - microcode dump
    name "prologlt";
    copyright "Copyright (c) Eugene Gavrilov, 2003.";
    engine "kX";
    created "05/11/2003";
    comment "prolog lite - no resources used";
    guid "06f1854e-8e8f-465f-8d9c-966cfcc20dc7";
    ; Registers
    	output ac97_l, ac97_r, spdifA_l;
    	output spdifA_r, spdifC_l, spdifC_r;
    	output spdifB_l, spdifB_r, i2s0_l;
    	output i2s0_r, i2s1_l, i2s1_r;
    	output i2s2_l, i2s2_r, ac97_mic
    
    ; Code
    
    end
    And you can save your full configuration, including the DSP setup. It should remember your most recent configuration and reload on startup. ...which isn't much use if the effects aren't doing anything.

    kX-related Myths are my favourite threads ;)

    so, what are the 'lite' versions?
    they are just 'placeholders' representing 10k1/10k2 chips' "physical" inputs and outputs
    that's why they don't require any additional resources
    and that's why their inputs and outputs are labelled 'i2sXX', 'spdifXX' instead of 'analog center' or 'CD SPDIF'
    certain chip outputs and inputs aren't connected to the codecs (it depends on the card model)

    they are useful only for people interested in freeing some DSP registers...
    they are also used for testing purposes

    of course, kX Mixer's 'Ins and Outs' page will be unavailable when using 'lite' prolog/epilog
    and, finally, this feature isn't supposed to be widely used and is currently under development
    that's why epilog/prolog lite connections aren't restored on reboot

    /Eugene

    p.s.
    btw, the 'FXBUS' effect is practically the same 'pseudo-plugin' -- it doesn't use any resources and simply represents software outputs

    I apologize for generating any myths.

    there's absolutely no problem with kX Myths :)
    I find them interesting -- and, by the way, I find it interesting to be a myth-maker & myth-breaker, too
