  2. Needed Samplitude features (Options) 1. Option to have Media files (BWF) and Image files in separate system folders. Samplitude media image files need to reside in a different System Folder than the source Media (WAV) files. 2. Option to Zoom around mouse cursor. Not around play position (default). Ctrl + Mouse Wheel = option to zoom around Mouse Position, not around Play Position. 3. Option to Export WAV files with embedded ISRC and meta data like it it does for MP3 exports. (Sequoia has this function but more important for Samplitude). 4. It would be nice if Opened Plugins follow selected clip. When selecting a Clip, close open plugins of that clip, then open the plugin for the selected Clip. 5. Option to reverse the mouse wheel direction. I use Samplitude for mastering, since 2005. It is by far the best. These options are features that I have wanted since day one. I put up with the inconvenience, without these features, because Samplitude is so great otherwise. Still I wish one of the great upgrades would include these options. Thank you, Jim Fox

  6. I've been with Independence since they were Yellow Tools, and I just completed a new build, and ran into the same exact problem. When Magix acquired Yellow Tools, I accepted the upgrade and maxed out with the then promotion, and at that time it was just "Independence Basic and Independence Pro Plus Library "70 Gigs". Now they have a total of 3. 1. Basic 2. Pro Plus. 3. Pro Plus Premium The 'NOW" Pro Plus Premium 70 Gigs was the Equivalent to the Pro Plus "BACK THEN" I still have my P2 serial number for my stand alone (70 Gigs) but it doesn't work !!!!! 2021. SMH
  7. Hmm, after nearly 3 years I think it's alright to hit you guys up with an update. I've gotten so much better since then, making lots of music. Naturally i've never quit using Samplitude and as crazy as it might sound, i'm still using stock plugins almost exclusively to do whatever i want, with my workflow getting more and more optimized. My recent album should be a good representation of the level i got to so far with this software. So many styles, check it out. Sincerely Simon
  8. Here you will find some benchmark results between both operating systems on my Ryzen 5000 APU system. The results are clear and indicate that Windows 11 is far from being finished and optimized. More to follow. Cinebench R23 (10/11): Multi 14505/13947 pts; Single 1403/1350 pts Geekbench 5.4.1 (10/11): Multi 9356/8964; Single 1483/1416 The results of AIDA 64 indicate a massive problem with the L3 cache. Win 10: Win 11:
  9. I don't find this in documantation. Maybe it isn't in ProX3
  10. Look at Grid Tapping in the documentation.
  11. Hello! I have a solo(flamenco) guitar track, which has slihtly fluctuated tempo. I didn't want to record this with click, because that kills the organic breath of the piece, so this tempo changes are justified musically. And I want to add some percussion with VSTI, which works with midi, and it needs correct timing for the sync. I was watching Kratznet's vids about tempo mapping, but that's all about aligning fluctuated tempo of the audio to the given bpm. My goal is reversed. Mean I want to adjust bpm to audio tempo changes by automation. Can I do this and how? If somebody knows good tutor about this question or has nice advice, I would be very grateful if anyone would share it. SampPro X 3 Thanks in advance!
  12. Hey there, I installed Sound Forge Pro 14 and just realized I can now right click onto audio files in windows explorer and select "convert to mp3/wma/flac..." but it only will use the built-in preset for that. In my case I tried wav -> mp3 and it converts it to 256kbps whereas I need 320kbps files. Is it possible to edit the preset? Would be a very decent feature! @proaudiosupport
  13. Hi Leute, ich brauche ne neue Tastatur für den PC/DAW und wollte um Vorschläge bitten. Und dann hätte ich noch gewusst, ob sich so ein Faderport bei Euch durchgesetzt hat. Ich halte meine Sachen eigentlich gerne schlank.
  14. I don't understand why they still have this ludicrous pricing. $399 is too damn high. Acon Acoustica Premium has Spectral Editing, Montage (Multi-Track), and you can use its plug-ins in 3rd party applications for $199. The pricing for this needs to be more competitive, IMO. Also, Audio Studio completely cannibalizes Sound Forge Pro sales, and MAGIX needs to stop giving away old versions in hopes of drawing in upgrades. Unless they start releasing banging upgrades, few people are going to bite as Sound Forge has been largely feature complete as a multi-channel audio editor (barring spectral editing) since v10. v12/13 is hardly worse than v15, and hardly anyone wants that clutter in their Windows Context Menu... Just drop the price for Sound Forge Pro down to $199, with $99 upgrades, and sell more copies. It's 2021. People won't think the product is better simply because it costs more.
  15. Source: Magix Sound Forge Pro 15 Review (kvraudio.com) Magix Sound Forge Pro 15 Review Originally published by Sonic Foundry before changing hands and becoming part of Sony's creative software division in 2003, Sound Forge is a true veteran in the world of digital audio software and a staple on many an audio engineer's workstation. With most of the Sony creative software catalogue under the Magix banner, Sound Forge, now in its 15th iteration, turns 30 this year. From its humble roots as an audio editor, it now caters for professional audio recording and mastering, sound design, audio restoration, CD authoring, podcast production and much more. First Impressions Special mention must be made of the tutorial system included with Sound Forge Pro 15. In addition to the manual, upon loading up the software for the first time you are greeted with an interactive tutorial system which provides a very visual walkthrough of all the components, menus and windows and will have you oriented in no time. It may sound trivial, but coming from another audio editor / DAW environment, it can often be frustrating figuring out how to accomplish often simple functions and this mitigated that issue elegantly. The UI is utilitarian at best and the interface could possibly do with a more modern overhaul from a visual standpoint. It is clean and functional though with a new dark mode being available in version 15 which seems to be the industry standard for creative apps these days. One of its strong suits though is the extreme amount of customization options on hand and its ability to adapt to a vast number of audio editing roles and applications. Any combination of windows can be docked fluidly across multiple monitors to create a unique work environment suited to the task at hand, or just grab one of the many workspaces presets to effortlessly jump from a mastering job to editing a podcast and everything in between. There is huge number of supported formats as well covering video importing and compressed audio files. Sound Forge also supports 64 bit Float files up to a whopping 768 kHz sample rates for extremely high resolution recording. Toolset Highlights A fantastically useful new feature in Sound Forge 15 is the inclusion of a context menu extension (for Microsoft Windows) which allows for several functions and processes to be run right from within explorer and without even needing to launch the app at all. It was surprising to see the context menu also works on folders, effecting all audio contained within and allowing you to convert formats, normalize files, trim silence and more in record time. This made working with large amounts of multi samples and recorded hits for use in sample libraries an absolute breeze, with no time spent creating complicated batch processes at all, although that option exists too. The loop tuner view was incredibly useful and an intuitive way to finely tune looped audio, be it beats or multi sampled instruments. Exported WAV's can have loop points embedded making Sound Forge a perfect partner for a synth such as Spectrasonic's Omnisphere 2, which has rather rudimentary sampling capabilities and really requires a partnership with an app like Sound Forge for you to fully take advantage of its sample engine. Sound Forge also supports SoundFont (SF2) files. For podcasters and engineers working with multiple takes to a single file, there are some handy tools such as the 'Truncate Silence' option which can remove pauses in voice overs. The automatic region creation also makes quick work of identifying regions across a lengthy recording, allowing you to quickly jump to, edit and export specific parts of a file. New in 15 are improvements to the 'Instant Action' functionality allowing you to create macros and shortcuts which are accessible from a single click and once again customizable per workspace. Again, this allows you to quickly tailor the app to do what you need it to without complicating the process at all. Other new features include a reworked export experience. Export templates can be saved and in turn assigned to the afore mentioned 'Instant Actions' or even to the Windows context menu functionality in Explorer. Radio, streaming and television compliant masters are also now easily achievable via loudness normalization (not to be confused with a standard peak normalization process) and conforms to EBU R128 or ITU BS.1770-4 standards. An ACX export wizard is also included for users working with content for audiobooks on Audible, iTunes and Amazon. Bang for your buck The bundled software that comes with the Pro and Suite versions of Sound Forge 15 is impressive and covers a lot of ground. You can get your feet wet with spectral editing with the included Spectra layers 7 from Steinberg as well as RX8 Elements from iZotope. Also, from iZotope, a selection of mastering tools in the form of Ozone Elements and a bundled version of Celemony Melodyne 4. ARA2 functionality is included for seamless integration between external apps. Although they're the light versions of their fully featured counterparts, all these inclusions provide an excellent set of tools and a springboard to some of the most well-respected audio editing tools in the industry. The value provided by the third-party software almost constitutes the price of Sound Forge 15 alone, despite the huge amount of tools it offers natively. A healthy dose of VST effects plugins are included as well covering everything from modulation FX for sound design, to dynamics control, restoration and more. There is enough utilities here to cover you for almost any application from mastering, podcast creation and sample manipulation to simple clean up and restoration jobs. The plugin chain did feel a bit awkward to use at times. A lack of a search function can make finding specific plugins on the fly a bit of a chore however you are given the ability to create custom folders with groups of plugins suited for specific tasks. It's possible to create a podcast folder for example and fill it with tools for removing plosives, compression suited for vocal work and whatever other tools you may require for the task at hand. The verdict Sound Forge 15 contains an impressive array of industry leading tools for audio professionals of all types over the years. It is a 'Swiss Army Knife' of an audio app that every engineer, podcaster, sound designer and mastering engineer would do well to have in their arsenal. Most impressive is how easy it is to mold it to one's needs, excelling at specific tasks, achieving results, and doing so quickly and effectively without confusion or distraction. Spend a bit of time tailoring Sound Forge to your personal workflow and it will fit you like a glove. At $399 for the Pro version and $599 for Suite, Sound Forge is an investment, however comparatively well priced considering the scope of the software. The bundled third-party apps and plugins more than justify the asking price and both versions are available on a rent-to-own model called '365'. Furthermore, should you only require a simplified set of tools, the studio version is available for $49 and contains many of the best new features such as the Windows context menu extensions.

  16. Hey Tim,

    I hope you all made it thru that storm ok!!! 

  17. I play Counter Strike Global Offensive on Linux Mint. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7i_OWA4ti4
  18. Thanks for your report, Michael. The Fireface 800 still works fine under Windows 10, even though it is officially supported by RME. But your report is a good example of not giving up on old unsupported hardware. I might try to bring my Focusrite Liquid Mix back to life....
  19. Hello, being an owner of a vintage firewire audio interface Focusrite Saffire Pro40, I'd like to share my experiences with this device and Windows 10. The Saffire Pro40 was launched by Focusrite in 2009. It features 18 physical inputs (2 analog mic/line/inst + 6 analog mic/line + 8 digital via optical ADAT + 2 digital via SP/DIF) and 20 physical outputs (10 analog line + 8 digital via optical ADAT + 2 digital via SP/DIF) in a 19" case. Furthermore, there are 2 virtual loopback inputs to record audio from software sources. To connect to a computer, the device provides a firewire (IEEE 1394) interface. The interface is of excellent audio quality, which is the reason why I try to use it as long as possible. Unfortunately, Focusrite announced in 2019, that their firewire interfaces won't support Windows 10 newer than 1809. Fortunately, this isn't true, at least regarding certain hardware configurations This is how I got my Saffire Pro40 to work: Firewire is an obsolete standard and most newer computers aren't equipped with a firewire controller. However, at least desktop computers can be retrofitted by a firewire expansion card. According to Focusrite, firewire controllers based on Texas Instruments XIO2213B (B is important) or LSI/Agere FW643 chipsets are the only ones which work properly with Windows 10 and the Saffire. So I purchased a PCIe controller card equipped with the TI XIO2213B chip. Usually, Windows 10 detects firewire controllers automatically and installs the driver it provides. However, Focusrite does not recommend to use this driver. Instead, one should use a legacy driver which came with Windows 8. You can download this driver from Microsoft from here. The page also explains how to install it. When installed, you have to change the firewire controller settings in device manager to use the legacy driver instead of the one provided by Windows 10. Download the newest version (3.7) of the software package for the Saffire Pro40 (Saffire Mix Control) from here and install it. The package also contains an ASIO driver for Saffire interfaces, which will be installed automatically. If necessary, the package also updates the interface's firmware. You might have to assign the Focusrite driver manually to the interface. This can be done using the device manager. This is how I got my Saffire to run flawlessly with Windows 10 2004. Amazingly the interface continued to work after I updated to 20H2 and 21H1 later. The only thing I had to do after installing a new feature update was to change the firewire driver setting to legacy according to #2 above. Regards Michael
  20. This is great info. AM-Munition is my go-to for boost, compression and limiting. I wish I didn't spend so much on other tools I didn't really need... or just end up never using much. I recently used the ColorFX Tube and Tape Saturation plugins are nice as well.
  21. Hi @Unwritten! Try to use the USB 2.0 interface on USB 2.0 port if possible, some USB 3.0 ports has not always total backward compatibility. Best, Thomas
  22. How does it work with Magix Low Latency Driver and your onboard audio chip? Your Mobo has one. Disconnect the Audiobox. Cheers, Thomas
  23. Update- Now freezing with Magix Low Latency drivers. Although at least now the audio just goes silent instead of an annoying loop of sound until I can open task manager and kill Samplitude. Ready to throw this Audiobox in the trash :p Edit - Worth noting absolutely no crashes using WDM. I'm assuming that there is something going on with this interface and unfortunately I do not have another laying around to test. Shopping time.
  24. Hi Thomas, Thank you for your response! I do in fact use the same audio interface on my desktop and laptop and reading your reply honestly makes me feel a bit dumb. It totally makes sense that the interface could be the culprit. I was using ASIO4ALL until this problem started and then started using the PreSonus Universal Control which I thought had solved my problem but soon found that it had not. I always connect the interface directly directly to the PC (Great advice btw) and I always try to use a 3.0 port, although I'm not even sure that makes a difference seeing how the Interface is 2.0 So, tonight I started up a project using Magix Low Latency Drivers and no issue! I swapped back to PreSonus drivers and no issue Uggghhh! Rebooted PC and started with PreSonus and FREEZE! Restarted Samplitude again with PreSonus drivers and freeze again. Restarted Samplitude again and no issues at all with PreSonus drivers. That is what is making this problem so hard to diagnose... It is intermittent. Well, once it's working, it's working but getting it going is a pain. I'm going to keep using the Magix Low Latency drivers to see if I encounter this problem with it as well. Will update with what I find in hopes of helping others with the same issue. Also, I am in the market for a new interface and was looking at the Audient ID14 , anyone who has experience with different interfaces, your advice is more than welcome because I do not know a lot about them other than what I have Googled. Thank you again Thomas! Will let you know what happens.
  25. Hi Unwritten, are you using on your laptop the same audio interface? Sounds like the #1 suspect! Try the Magix Low Latency Driver, with your AudioBox, and with Onboard Audio. Connect your AudioBox directly, no USB hub, and to a USB port that is not shared with other devices. There could be quite a few other reasons for this issue :-| Cheers, Thomas
  26. Hi there, New to the forum here but not Magix. I've been searching for an answer to this problem with no luck. Please excuse me if this has already been asked and I've missed it. The issue that I am experiencing is that when I open any project within Pro X 5 or Pro X 6, I play my project and Samplitude will freeze, playing approximately a half sec loop of the audio over and over until I open task manager and kill Samplitude. I repeat this process several times until all of a sudden it will stop doing this and I can work within that project for hours with no issue, until I close Samplitude and reopen again. The projects always contain a mix of MIDI and Audio tracks. And it seems to be something with the either the MIDI tracks or the plugins because if I freeze all of the MIDI tracks to AUIDO (CTRL+ALT+F) it plays with no issue. Needless to say, I am beyond frustrated with this issue because by the time I've gotten to were Samplitude decides to work, I'm aggravated and the creative mood is ruined by my frustration. Now, I'm not blaming Samplitude as I am fully aware that this is most likely a setting within the software or PC on my end. If anyone else has expirenced this issue and/or can offer any advice, I will be more than grateful and possibly even buy your dinner Thanks in advance for any and all replies. I truly appreciate your time. - Unwritten Samplitude Pro X 5 and 6 / Win 10 Pro 64bit / ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming 4S / Ryzen 3700X/ 32 GB G Skill Trident Z @3200 / Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 1TB / SAMSUNG 860 EVO Series 2.5" 500GB / Presonus AudioBox 22VSL (In the market for a better interface) Also, worth noting that I have this same problem on my laptop! (Same project files from desktop)
  27. Hi Alfonso, I too had trouble with this. Unfortunately I found no way of updating within Samplitude but figured out that if you uninstall Pro X 5 and reinstall, it automatically upgrades you to the latest version (Pro X 6). Please note that doing this does change some Magix plugins which I found out the hard way... Not a huge deal but still, had to find new plugs to replace one that I had used with my ongoing projects in Pro X 5. But to answer your question, no it does not change your subscription price. I hope this helps somewhat. And happy recording!
