The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your
kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming
questions and please don't post ads.
1. The lounge is for the CodeProject community to discuss things of interest to the community, and as a place for the whole community to participate. It is, first and foremost, a respectful meeting and discussion area for those wishing to discuss the life of a Software developer.
The #1 rule is: Be respectful of others, of the site, and of the community as a whole.
2. Technical discussions are welcome, but if you need specific programming question answered please use Quick Answers[^], or to discussion your programming problem in depth use the programming forums[^]. We encourage technical discussion, but this is a general discussion forum, not a programming Q&A forum. Posts will be moved or deleted if they fit better elsewhere.
4. No politics (including enviro-politics[^]), no sex, no religion. This is a community for software development. There are plenty of other sites that are far more appropriate for these discussions. Or if you must, use the Back Room[^] - but enter at your own risk.
5. Nothing Not Safe For Work, nothing you would not want your wife/husband, your girlfriend/boyfriend, your mother or your kid sister seeing on your screen. For those discussions where you wish to be a little more frank, use the Soapbox[^]
6. Any personal attacks, any spam, any advertising, any trolling, or any abuse of the rules will result in your account being removed.
7. Not everyone's first language is English. Be understanding.
Please respect the community and respect each other. We are of many cultures so remember that. Don't assume others understand you are joking, don't belittle anyone for taking offense or being thin skinned.
We are a community for software developers. Leave the egos at the door.
And how many could listen to oa conversation between say 2 doctors, or 2 structural engineers and understand all of their acronyms? Could you? Do you know every acronym used by banks in their dealing room?
You're an IT person, of course you know what those terms are. Way less than 1 in 9 Americans are IT people so they are actually doing quite well if only 1 in 9 get it wrong.
Sigh, I guess it's not fake news, no it's worse, it's even more pointless.
Signature ready for installation. Please Reboot now.
Soldering is not something I've done many times however, I do have a question that I'm not sure
can be answered. I can't find motherboard schematics on the device.
issue : Roland TD drums is USB 2.0 out / need 3.0 out .. 2.0 too slow
Is it possible to take out the USB 2.0 and install 3.0. Yes this would be a hack.
This probably will require a firmware update( reverse engineer ) but not real clear on how USB 2.0
Not real clear on buffering or hardware requirements ( guessing controller dev probably just only
allows buffering that 2.0 can deal with which is fine. It's the speed of 3.0 that I'm looking for
The TD-25 TD-30 or TD-20( more pics of the 20 on google images ) may give you some idea ..
Almost certainly not. USB3 is orders of magnitude faster than USB2, and it's very unlikely that the chipset silicon designed for the slow data rate could even begin to keep up at the higher speed, even if we ignore the other differences. And that's without the appropriate drivers...
And the chipset for USB2 has no idea how USB3 negotiation is handled, so a USB3 device plugged in would still only work at USB2. It's not really practical to try and change the chips themselves, most modern stuff is BGA (teeny tiny balls under the chip where you can't reach them) or fine pitch SMT (where you need specialist tools to desolder / solder without pulling the PCB to bits - Weller do a Flow-tip for some of their irons which can cope with 0.5mm pin pitch for assembly, but disassembly needs heatguns and a lot of care). Even if you had the kit, without circuit diagrams it would be a nightmare. Bear in mind that complicated PCBS tend to be multilayer as well, so just following tracks needs a damn X-ray machine...
Unless you are a seriously good solderer I'd have to suggest you look at upgrading kit if something's too slow - home alterations to modern PCB's are unlikely to succeed.
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
( Pls ignore the comment above where I wrote replace 2.0 w/ 3.0 (hardware) .. Obviously, error checking would fail at the receiving end every time w/o firmware update )
These days acoustic drummers are using electric kits to practice. We are triggering drum software on laptops etc for extremely high quality ( studio recorded .. Superior Drummer 3 .. better sound than module ) drum sounds. As usual latency ( usb 2.0 / MIDI ) is an issue along with win drivers ( asio4all driver helps ).
Anyway, just looking to see if my question was an option as 3.0 is much faster.
No. This spec extends from the USB connector, though the chipset, that open collector buffer thing all the back to the firmware implementation.
Are you certain the latencies you are experiencing are truly due the the speed of usb 2.0?
Your issues are likely your output sound setup (DAW etc...) and not usb 2.0. Chances are your notes
are getting to the output device on time and then being backed up by plugin delay compensation or ASIO buffer size etc. Various DAWs do tight midi to differing degrees. With word on the street that Cubase is best in this regard.
Remember: good old midi (5 pin DIN) was 110 baud. Were talkin iceberg slow. And every thing was good.
That speed can keep up with the fastest music any human may want to hear. USB 2.0 blows old midi away.
I'm thinking about Java and how much I like the idea of Java but I'm also wondering if it really is a dead thing -- except legacy work.
In other words:
Why would anyone choose to start a new/modern project using Java?
Why does it seem that few people do Java dev here (CP) but there seem to always be jobs posted around that want Java dev experience?
For Java devs:
Which IDE do you use, do you like?
Why would I choose JDeveloper (larger) over netbeans?
Is JDeveloper any good? It's a huge 2GB download so I'm curious before downloading/installing.
Is JDeveloper based upon Eclipse?
Is netbeans based upon Eclipse?
Note: I used Eclipse in the earlier days of Android Development and thought it was terrible because its concept of a project was not great and it was difficult to take your "project" to another machine and work on it there.
Is Java a valid choice for cross-platform development (windows to linux to macOS)?
Or is that a dream also?
Not trying to start a huge war about Java technology and why it's obviously the best/worst etc.
I'm thinking about doing some Java work so I'm interested.
Downloaded NetBeans and so far it seems fairly nice and somewhat similar to Android Studio.
Maybe NetBeans is all you need. Plus, I believe it runs on Linux too.
I examined a JavaFX sample project and noticed the entire UI was built in code.
Not even XML files like Android Studio. Then I went out and searched netbeans to see if there was a UI Designer in NetBeans. Well, it says yes for JavaFX 1.0 but no for 2.0.
It is date stamped : Beta Draft: 2013-09-15!!!
I'm literally cracking up.
Okay, I'm done. Java isn't a thing. Bye, Java. So long and thanks for all the stank.
FYI - I know I'm being an ignorant dev here and some long-time Java dev is going to come along and tell me that I'm just so wrong. I understand. I was just examining this on a very quick basis to get an idea of how quickly you could jump in to java dev. IntelliJ probably solves a lot of the problems I am seeing. thanks all.
