I have been using Samplitude 2496 vs5.58 for years, mostly for editing.
I use Cubase SX3 for recording mainly because of VST's and VSTi's of which I have many.
I'm thinking of changing/upgrading. Cubase 4 has a lot of features, BUT, many of them do not yet work as advertised. Upgrade Cost is $199.
I also want to be able to Edit and Master my audio files, so I've been playing with Wavelab Essential (kind of like SE).
I can upgrade Wavelab Essential to Wavelab Studio 6 (pretty good but not PRO version) for $169
But if I crossgrade to Samplitude Classic instead, it will only cost $299 total versus $368 for the upgrades.
So I'm asking - How well do VST instruments & plug-ins work in Samplitude Classic? How about DX type?
I just downloaded the demo and hope it will answer much.
Secondly - how is Samplitude Classic as a Mastering program? The demo won't help me much there because I don't yet know enough to tell.
Third - If I crossgrade, do I really have to mail a manual page to Germany? or is there some way to verify SX more locally.
Thanks for your patience.
