Re: Playing with soundtrack in 6.5.22 as a DAW.

I am honestly curious to try my O2 as a DAW.

Other than the software provided with IRIX (can't remember the name) are there any other software available?

Re: Starting with 3D Modeling (Softimage|3D, Maya, Blender)

I don't think Wildfire is free like blender when its name starts with "Pro/Engineer Wildfire".

While ago, I had to do CAD modeling and I started with Pro/Engineer and the learning curve was really fast. I wish I could get it for my O2...

Re: Matador

Excuse my ignorance but: what is Matador ?

Even if I don't it, it's interesting to know that old SGI hardware is still in production. I guess they'll use their Octane2 until the end of support of Irix, well probably beyond that...

Very interesting thread.

Hum, but the Fuel looks like a red painted PC to me ;)

Re: O2 vs Octane (same CPU)

Wow! thanks for these numbers. I am surprised how slow the O2 is, even compared to an Indigo 2 which is technicaly a generation before.

O2 vs Octane (same CPU)

Hi, I was wondering how faster is the Octane compared to the O2. For example, my O2 got a R12000 300MHz CPU and I know it is available on the Octane in a single CPU configuration. Knowing the architecture of these computers are different, I would like to know how much faster the Octane can be. Any b...

O2 audio output

Hi all, I'm not sure if it's in the right section of this forum, correct me if i'm wrong. Anyway, the thing is, I want to plug my O2 into my audio console using RCA jack on the left side. I don't get any output from there. Every sound is coming from the internal speaker which is ok but not the best....

Re: Corrupted Softimage 3.8 installation CD

did you try to copy the cd to disk first? sometimes it's just a read error although the cd is fine Yup, I tried that, same result. Actually, the CD is in bad shape, it take a while to copy its content and I often hear a "repetition" noise from the drive. You know, when the drive tries and...
