  1. just found out about this thing. Wow its awesome.

    Plus the ability to freeze tracks is great to..

    What is the difference between the gain fader and a volume fader?

    Also, when you put plugins on an object in the object editor, say the object is a whole track, why do the plugins not come up in the mixer view?

    Are they supposed to?

    Do you guys mix this way, with objects or do you put your realtime effects in the mixer section?

    Ahh... you've found the OE. Pretty powerful stuff there.

    Anyways, the effects used in OE are built into that object, and the mixer effects are track-based. You can also send from object to aux track effects.

    I believe gain is extra gain that is pre-fader.

    It's also possible to freeze objects.

    I use a combination of object and tracks during mix, but for compiling CD's and mastering, etc. the object approach RULES!

    Check out Kraznet's Object editor tutorial videos on youtube being uploaded today!

  2. Hi All, I'm using Samplitude Music studio 15 & I am thinking of buying Toontrack Ezdrummer, can anyone confirm that ezdrummer will work with Music studio 15.

    toontrack say they have not tested it & don't know whether it will work.

    Any help would be most appreciated

    Thanks

    Delidave :)

    Toontracks ignores Samplitude, but it works.

  3. shift (or ctrl to selectively select) + highlight tracks at the track name window to temporarily group tracks.

    ctrl+a selects all objects in the tracks if you want to do things like object fades, etc.

    THanks Greg, so I guess you can't do anything like that in samp huh? I know all of those techniques . They are just a lot less elegant than a one key global command .

    I need to be able to reduce or increase all volumes across the mixer or all pans etc. How is this achieved??

    Like I said, if you temp-group all the tracks, then all controls will be grouped.

    Or you can assign a hotkey to 'hard' manually group track controls.

    But there is no global highlight-all-tracks (that I know of) because Samplitude ALSO uses objects in addition to just being a track-based paradigm.

    You have to select the tracks that you want grouped.

    If you want them to stay grouped, then use the 'group track controls' (for a more robust grouping), or link the tracks (via the mixer button or hotkey).

    It's just a matter of adapting Samplitude to your workflow because it is NOT Protools, and there are added functions when working with objects in addition to tracks.

  4. 1. I cant post in any of the samplitude forums except for newcommer. I have Sam Classic 8.

    2. I cant login to my support / registration account...

    I Know my login names /passwords but these do not work. i have tried IE6 / IE7 / Firefox, you name it. I have enabled cookies, disabled cookies, still I cant do anything.

    What could it be? Could someone from magix email me at my hotmail account and maybe we can go from there, this bites big time as I'd like to post but am stuck up here..and I cant get to my information to register my classic 8....

    thanks for any and all help.

    Checked this post?

  5. So, I'm presuming you're working with audio...

    Anyways, you'll have to trim/cut your object at desired bpm change positions and then slide the object edges using the time-shift mouse mode.

    In other words, if you have an object that's 16 bars long, and have tempo markers/changes at bars 4, 8, 12, then you should first cut the object at desired bar (or cue) positions, and then slide the edges over.

    No, it's NOT automatic, so it won't just make the audio slip/slide/warp into the new positions.

    Unfortunately it's been this way for a while in Samplitude (with it's objects) - later on the 'other guys' like Sonar, Logic, and Live eventually added in their 'warp' features.

    I'm doing some of this now on a lead-guitar track, and while it works, it can get clumsy and unpredictable if you have a lot of tempo changes in a short range - (or in this particular case odd time signatures as well).

    Is there room for improvement? Definitely. I have about 3 requests for improvements/updates with this feature. :D

  6. I'm not sure whether it's mistake of my program or it's its feature, but when i'm marking track with tempo markers the only thing that happens is changing of metronom speed. So tempo changes don't affect (time-stretch) objects. Though, the grid is changing right and snap to grid (beats/bar) is active. So is it a program mistake?, or tempo-markers are used only for adapting vip tempo to object tempo?

    The objects should bump to the desired grid-point if you nudge the node at the bottom-corner of the object using the pitch shift/time-stretch mouse mode.

  7. Yes, try recording the bassline on guitar - using mostly low string, and then pitch down in Samplitude's Elastic Audio.

    Then run the result through Vandal bass amp and maybe amphibia.

    It's not real-time, but you wouldn't have to necessarily use MIDI.

    ...or just get a MIDI guitar (that's what I do :) ). Then there lots of options.

    Greg

    cool idea, you mean use pitch shift and time mode?

    no, probably just pitch shift, right?

  9. :) Hey folks, im new here!

    1. Does anyone know if i can ''lock the toolbars'' in samplitude 11? because that would be a real nice feature for me.

    2. Is it possible to organize the master vst's and direct x plugins like to remove the ones i don't want shown in the list??

    -peace out!! btw samplitude is the best, i love it, it blows my mind how good it is. :)

    1) I don't think so.

    2) I don't think it's possible to remove from the list unless you turn them off before you scan your VST folder . Hmmmmmm...
