  1. Hallo Leute!


    Ich bin auf der Suche nach einem für Blinde gut geeigneten Hardware Controller, den ich problemlos in Samplitude integrieren kann. Vor einigen Jahren hat mal jemand in unserer deutschen Samplitude Mailingliste sehr wohlwollend über den Presonus Faderport gesprochen, der recht gut mit Samplitude zusammenarbeiten soll.

    Pro: er lässt sich wirklich gut in Samplitude einbinden.

    Contra: er hat lediglich einen motorisierten Fader.


    Vor kurzem wurde von Presonus der Faderport 8 herausgebracht. Von diesem Controller weiß ich leider nicht, wie gut und ob er überhaupt mit Samplitude zusammenarbeitet. Ich hatte zudem auch mal die Gelegenheit, ihn mir beim Musikhändler meines Vertrauens etwas genauer anzuschauen, und da musste ich feststellen, dass mir die Art und Weise, wie er strukturiert ist, nicht ganz zugesagt hat.


    Dann vor einigen Wochen hat mir mein Gesangslehrer erzählt, dass er für sein Homestudio den Console 1 Controller von Soft Tube geordert hat. Dieser soll wirklich hervorragend gut mit Cubase und Nuendo von Steinberg, auch mit Presonus Studio One interagieren, aber bisher konnte mir noch keiner sagen, ob und wie gut auch dieser Controller mit Samplitude arbeitet.


    Wer von euch hier im Forum benutzt einen Hardware Controller? Welchen und wie gut kann Samplitude damit interagieren, bzw. wie gut lässt er sich in Samplitude und dessen Workflow einbinden?


    Mit besten Grüßen aus Graz,


  2. Hello guys!


    I'm looking for an accessible Hardware Controller that works quite good with Samplitude, or that can be included quite good.


    One of our members in the german Mailing list told something great about the Presonus Faderport some years ago.

    Pro: It is able to be included quite good in the working process of Samplitude.

    Contra: It has only one motorized fader.


    Some months ago Presonus launched the Faderport 8 which has 8 motorized faders. There I have no idea either how it works or whether it can be included in Samplitude as well as the former Version of the Faderport with only one motorized fader. I had the chance to take a look at that Controller, and there I realized that I don't like the structure of it.


    Then some weeks ago I heard about the Console 1 Controller from Soft Tube, but there I don't know whether it can interact with Samplitude. My vocal coach ordered it for his home studio and he told me that he is fascinated how great Console 1 can be included in Cubase or Nuendo from Steinberg. It should also work very good with Presonus Studio One, but no one could tell me whether it works with Samplitude.


    Now my question: does anyone of you use a Hardware Controller? Which Controller and how accessible is the workflow with it?

    In Cubase, User can scroll freely with mouse wheel button.

    It is very useful and handy.

    I know that Samplitude also have mouse wheel button action(play, scrub).

    Adding Free  scroll and More actions(ex.custom shorcut, etc...) will be helpful...


    That might be interesting and helpfull for people who can interact with a mouse and its wheel. But this here is the Accessibility Forum for blind and visually-impaired users, where we try to find solutions without a mouse and the mouse wheel, that means solutions only for keyboards; that includes shortcuts and so on..

    Hi Patrick,

    That will be fine. PM me a couple of days before and I will put it in my diary.

    Merry Christmas as well.

    Regards, Kraznet

    Hi! Okay, I sent you a PM. I also tried it last week, but I think that message has been lost. So I sent it today once again. There I forgot to ask whether I also should organize the DVDs allthough Independence is already installed.

    Hi Patrick,

    I'm sorry to hear it's such a frustrating experience. I keep my Independence image files on separate hard drive but I think the default place for them is C:\ProgramData\MAGIX\Independence Libraries

    If you want me to do a Teamviewer session with you tomorrow I could maybe help?

    Regards, Kraznet

    Hello! Sorry that I Reply so late. I discovered your last post several minutes ago. For a session we have to wait till the 2nd week of January, 'cause now we have Christmas Holidays and our University is closed over the Holidays.


    But then we can try a session. :-)


    Merry Christmas!


    Regards, Patrick

  6. Hello Kraznet!


    Thanks for your answer. I checked that there are two dialogues, the Parameter dialogue and the plug-in dialogue, so I didn't realize it earlier and so I found the "Load" menue and the preferences box some days ago. But now I have another Problem. I downloaded the Image files one month ago, but now I have the Problem that I can't find the path in which they are located at the moment. I also tried it with the search function of my hard disk, but that also didn't work. You can imagine that it makes me really frustrated. And yesterday an employee of the Samplitude support team explained me that it's impossible to make the correct Independence Pro settings in Accessibility mode without a mouse.


    Of Course I don't give up, but I don't have an idea where I can find the downloaded image files. So, is it the simplest way to remove the whole plug-in and re-install it again?

    Hi Patrick,

    Do you have Mixer FX Monitoring/Hybrid Engine enabled?

    Okay, I found it with the help of one of my instructors from University. Yes, now I can hear the Controller. Now I have the only Problem that Independence Pro doesn't want to work. The Problem is that I am not sure where the installed Image files are right now on my System.

  8. Hey guys!


    I Need some help: I downloaded nearly every instrument I got with the help menu of Samplitude Pro X3 Suite, I even downloaded the Independence Library. Okay, that worked. But now I have the problem that I can't interact correctly with the VST instruments. Independence plays nothing when I try to record something and the other instruments like the Vita Concert Grand Piano or the DNE1-Synthesizer are nearly working correctly, but there I have the problem that I can't hear anything. I can record the notes with an ESI49 MIDI Controller and I can play the recorded material after finishing the recording, but the Monitoring doesn't work correctly, so I can't hear anything during the recordings.


    What can I do that:

    1. I can start working with Independence and

    2. I can hear the Monitoring signals?

  9. A few months ago, an employee from Support team told me that the accessibility container, or earlier Visually Impaired (for Pro X and Pro X2) was designed for Pro
    X, but this container is based on the skins of Samplitude 11 Pro. This is also due to the fact that the default view of Samplitude Pro X has a different
    menu bar than in the Accessibility view. For example, in the Standard view, the Track Effects menu does not exist in the Track menu, but everything is
    made from the Effects menu. Why is that? Were the skins of Samplitude Pro X not able to harmonize with the accessibility mode?

    Can't follow some of these posts guys as they're in German, but just to let you know, I've found that "record exclusive" also unarms all other tracks wile only arming the track you're on. I've written some code into the samplitude Access scripts that does this and then turns off that 1 track, hence unarming all tracks. HTH. Steve.


    Hey! That are great News. How does it work concretely?




  11. Hi! At the german Version of Pro X3 ther is another problem. The JAWS Screen Reader doesn't stop working, but it seems that Samplitude wants to load the Low latency Driver and has then an error message that it can't be loaded, although the normal ASIO Driver is set in the System Settings. That error message returns if I try to reboot the software with the start dialogue. My Standard ASIO Sound Driver is a Steinberg Interface. At University I use the UR22 Interface on our University computer, at home my Standard Interface is the Steinberg UR44 Interface.

  12. Um das Ganze noch einmal zu beschreiben: ich nehme also diese Einstellungen vor, klicke auf OK und werde aus dem Menü geworfen. Dabei wird es dann im Hintergrund wieder gestartet. Wenn ich dann über "JAWS-Taste"+"F10" die Fensterliste aufrufe, wird mir das Menü hintergründig wieder angezeigt, so dass ich zurückkehren kann, allerdings steht dabei noch in Klammern (wiederhergestellt). Das hat für mich den Anschein, als ob nach Tätigung dieser Einstellungen das Menü kurzzeitig abstürzen würde.

  13. Hello there! I wrote it last niht in German, but I think it can be good and usefull, if the English readers also get the message of a quite interesting problem.


    Yesterday I had a talk with Christopher Kopel, and we realized that there is a problem with a specific menu point in Samplitude Pro X3, in both editions, the Standard Edition and the Suite.


    If I enter the menu bar with the menu button and scroll to the menu "Tools", there is a menu point called "Bounce internal mixdown". In this menu there is a Checkbox, in which you can set the Quality of mixdown, for example from "Very good" to "Extremely high 1 or 2". If you finish your quality setting, you can click the "OK"-button, but if you want to continue navigating through the menu for other settings, Pro X3 crashs the menu and you are in the main window with the tracks, but the menu is actually active in background. So you must start the menu again or you can call the window list with "JAWS-button" and F10 for searching the menu window.

    I don't know if this bug is only visible for us blind and visually-impaired users or the normal-seeing users too. Now I want to know: is there any user who has the same problems with that menu? In that case I think it's usefull that Tom could contact the Support or the developers to fix that bug.

  14. Hallo ins Forum!


    Ich habe heute Nachmittag ein Gespräch mit Chrissie geführt über ein bestimmtes Problem, das bei Samplitude Pro X3 - sowohl in der Basisversion als auch in der Suite - auftritt und vereinzelt auch schon bei Pro X2 aufgetreten ist und bei dem ich mir nicht ganz sicher bin, ob nur wir blinde und seheingeschränkte Nutzer davon betroffen sind oder ob es sehenden Benutzern auch so geht. Über das Menü "Werkzeuge" gelangt man zum Punkt "Bounce interner Mixdown". Innerhalb dieses Menüs gibt es eine Checkbox, in der man die Qualität des Bounces einstellen kann, beispielsweise von sehr gut auf extrem hoch 1 und extrem hoch 2. Ist man mit seiner Qualitätsauswahl zufrieden, bestätigt man mit "OK". Soweit so gut, aber nun tritt der Bug auf, der eigentlich nicht passieren dürfte. Sowie "OK" gedrückt wurde, erwartet man, dass man innerhalb des Menüs mit seinen Auswahlen fortfahren kann. Bei Samplitude Pro X1 hat das auch noch gut geklappt, bei Samplitude Pro X3 hingegen werden wir nach Betätigen des "OK"-Buttons aus dem Menü geworfen und gelangen ins Hauptfenster, obwohl das Menü (wie Chrissie mir heute Nachmittag mitteilte) immer noch im Hintergrund aktiv ist und man es über die JAWS-Fensterliste wieder erreichen kann - sofern man von dieser Fensterauflistung Kenntnis hat. Ich hatte diese Kenntnis nicht und war daher gezwungen, das Ganze noch mal von vorne zu machen. Überhaupt verhält sich Samplitude gerade an diesem Punkt fast schon so, als ob es kurzzeitig abstürzen würde. Daher meine Frage: geht es nur uns blinden und seheingeschränkten Nutzern so, dass wir nach Betätigen dieser Qualitäts-Checkbox aus dem Menü geworfen werden oder ist dieser Bug auch bei den sehenden Benutzern bekannt?
