  1. Any Samplitude experts out there who use BFD2? That means not on a Mac (on a PC with XP) and not Pro Tools but Samplitude!

    I am looking for an engineer who is very experienced using the BFD2 drum program. It is also a big plus if you use Samplitude as that is the host program I will be using. I use XP on a PC and would be hiring you to help me install it and show me the basics at my home studio located in the East 80's in NYC.I'd be willing to pay up to $30 an hour and would do a three hour minimum. I want to use the BFD with the midi tracks from my Roland TD6 drum kit.

    Also check out the reviews of my last release (Sunrise Highway), they are super. Perhaps I can hire you for some mixing/tutoring as well. I know a fair amount about digital recording but am more of a writer/musician than a technical person. So I am looking for a technical person who can make learning the BFD2 process easier. I already know and have version 1 and have had problems with it all along.

    Did you get this sorted out?


  2. I can't believe noone has responded up until now.

    Did you get this sorted out?

    I think if you group all the MIDI objects and go into the MIDI editor, then you can apply the desired Q across all objects.

    For longer empty MIDI objects, you can either just copy them (ctrl+d), or create a loop (ctrl+l) and drag more objects across the track.

    Anything else?


  3. However, no issues with Omnisphere here. :lol:

    Even when clicking notes in the midi editor with the hybrid engine enabled? :lol:

    Yes. The note-off issue doesn't seem to happen here on all (sustained/pad-type) patches. :P:)

    Haven't figured out yet why only Omnisphere does this.

    <workaround is to set a hotkey for MIDI panic/note off>.


  4. Fogive me if i show my ignorance but i could do with some help.

    using samplitude se 9 which i got free with computer music mag.

    if i record a guitar on track 1

    then a vocal on track 2, when i play them both back they are not in sync with each other, and the vocal lags behind.

    I am probably doing something silly here can any one help ?


    use ASIO drivers for your sound card or audio interface.

    download the manual from the MAGIX website and read at least the introduction to learn to operate this programm.

    I came from Cakewalk and was a little bit overwhelmed by the numerous features of SAM.



    i have asio already, is it something to do with the buffers ?

    You can always adjust the buffer settings and see if it improves.

    What is your audio interface and current buffer settings?


  5. I just Started with Samplitude and wolud love to see the tutorials for what I read on this forum they are great and an good way to get started right away... where can I find them? Thank you very much!!!

    You can find there here www.youtube.com/kraznet



    Thanks for taking the time to split them up into tiny morsels.

  6. Thanks everyone. This has all been most helpful so far.

    My next endeavor is understanding what Freezing is track actually is. I think I have a handle on that one. But what I don't understand is Gluing a track. What's that.

    Firstly, is Freeze Track similar to the Pro Tools "Consolidate Region"? Whereby taking a track and basically rendering all your cuts, edits, fades, etc to one single wav file? Also, from what I understand, Freezing also renders any plugins you have on the track, thereby saving you all that cpu usage. And Also, I think that you can UnFreeze, where Samplitude remembers how everything was before, and then gives you back control should you want to unFreeze it. Do I have this right? Anything else about Freeze that I missed or am not understanding correctly?

    And of course, there is Gluing a track, which I don't know that I've ever heard of. So feel free to elaborate on that one if you will. In the meantime I shall search the .pdf for information on this feature.

    Thanks everyone.

    Yes, freezing tracks captures everything that's resident on that track - including any inserted effects, etc. You can even freeze otherwise empty aux/submix channels that have effects on them :) It's also possible to freeze objects.

    I sometimes use freeze for rendering out a quick stem that can be dragged into any other editor (Protools, Sonar, DP, etc.) - since the frozen track or object IS a wave file.

    Gluing is an option for 'reattaching' multiple objects on a track. Try highlighting multiple objects and go to track (in menu), and glue track objects.

    Consolidating region is more similar to the mixdown function in Samplitude, since you can also mix distinct tracks, ranges (regions), or objects (depending on how you have things setup).

    I'm not at my machine right now, so other guys probably have other suggestions.


  7. Object-editing in Samplitude is non-volatile, so once an object is trimmed, you can always drag the neighboring object-edges back over the trim area.

    Automation - right click on volume button in VIP track or mixer and delete the desired curve as a whole, or use another automation mode to overwrite the automation, or switch to automation mouse mode and window-grab the automation nodes that you want to delete/move, etc.

    Keep watching Kraznet's videos. They're very good.

    Once you get the hang of Samplitude's audio editing functions, there may be no turning back :)


  8. If the Kore player .dll (or whatever it is) is in your main VST folder, it should see it.

    If the VST was installed elsewhere during the installation, then either migrate it or try creating a shortcut copy of it and move the shortcut (alias) to your VST folder.

    Rescan VST folder including 'failed' VST's and see what happens.

    In Samplitude sometimes VST's show up as a synth plugin, or under one of the other categories. Try loading it from the mixer channel rather than the VIP track.

    Otherwise not sure what else to recommend.


  9. As Music Maker is not a DAW (does not allow mutiple external source inputs) I am thinking of buying a new program so I can send all of my sources (drum mics etc) to separate tracks instead of routing them thoguh a pre-mixer and sending the composite audio to Music Maker. Thing is I love the loop/audio file capabilities of MM especially being able to preview the loop at the BPM of the project displayed and the ability to paste those loops in the project and have MM automatically adjust the sample to fit the project's BPM etc. I have checked Cubase and it appears this feature is still a mess, I don't want to be locked in to Protools HW and I don't want a Mac. Given this I am hoping Samplitude or Sequoia can scratch all of my itches - especially since they are all made by Magix.

    Can anyone tell me if Samplitude or Sequioa can do what I described?

    Yes (as mentioned in your other posts).

    Here's Kraznet's video showing the loop/bpm features.

    It works great.


  10. Hi Greg,

    I remember reading that in the manual but have not use much. I seem to use Ctrl-D for duplicate more to accomplish looping.


    Ctrl+D duplicates objects, correct.

    Ctrl+L will create a loop of anything within a RANGE (doesn't have to be an object), and then you can just 'draw' in the loop tagged onto the end of the object.

    Both functions work perfectly.
