  1. If I may add to Frank and any other developer here: I know several fellow composer/producers here in the NYC area who have largely structured their studios around their Vst Access Viruses (at least from a sound module point of view). Whatever can be done to get Access on the Samplitude bandwagon would be invaluable to Samp's cause of spreading the good word -- certainly amongst professional midi/vsti-oriented recordists!
  2. Hi Rich: I hear you. I guess I just have to accept the inevitable. I wonder if you could be so kind to walk me through how you have your TI Snow configed to Samp, as I'm a bit stumped. (I honestly have not used an ext hardware synth in years -- what with all the virtuals on the market! -- and am still learning Samp) I'm using my motif as a controller, with midi thru on the Motif connected to Midi In on the virus. I have my virus stereo analog outs connected directly into my Fireface inputs 7&8... Thanks! J
  3. Yes, Rich, I was afraid of that. Not that working in classic/externalsynth/midi mode is the end of the world, but vsti virtual is certainly a lot more desirable -- and for me, at this point, a lot more familiar. I was just hoping -- still hoping, perhaps -- that somewhere somehow there is a button to be ticked/unticked and/or an ini file to be renamed or trashed etc to get this thing working virtually with a bit less latency.
  4. Hi Tom: Under Plugin Buffers, the preset is Default. Max vst buffer size is -2. vst automation resolution is 256.
  5. Hi: I recently purchased the Virus TI Snow desktop synth which, via usb to computer, functions as a vsti. This unit runs well in Cubase (although I notice I often have to tweak the buffer on my Fireface800 settings before it functions with barely minimal latency). On the Sam side, I have had no such luck... I talked at length with George Cabaniss at tech support yesterday and he had me try the following: reducing the FF latency, resetting the audio/midi ini, and resetting the Vst ini file. Also, he walked me through changing the registry settings for the class compliant USB drivers. All to no avail. Any suggestions...? Frustrated, J
  6. Hi: This seemingly simple question has left some great Samplitude minds scratching their heads... On Cubase, I have a personal key shortcut ("C") for the click on the transport bar, so as to toggle the annoying-but-necessary metronome click during monitoring, tracking, playback, etc. How do I do this on Sam? There seems to be a problem with the "Edit Keyboard Shortcuts, Menu and Mouse" section in so far as there is no subsection for specific transport parameters. Under Options/Program Preferences I did discover a Metronome Options listing, but shortcutting that only brings up a metronome setup dialogue. I'm interested in hitting a button to toggle the click sound on/off. Any ideas, suggestions? Thanks, J
  7. Hi Frank: Ok, that works. Initially you said Quantize Undo and I was scratching my head as to where one finds this feature. Reset Quantization works fine. Looking forward to Sam's future upgraded midi functions. (One design option is to do what the Digidesign folk probably did for the most recent version of PT: open up a copy of Logic and/or Cubase and "creatively interpolate" some of the more advanced midi functions that we midi geeks need and love:) Thanks again, J
  8. Hello again: well, I'm finally working on a fully-functioning (ie, non-demo) version of Samplitude Pro 10, have just ran the 10.1 patch and am still not seeing the Quantization Undo function in either of the midi drop down menus mentioned above. Hmmm:( Also, while the scaling trick mentioned above is one way of going about midi compression, my impression thus far is it's sort of a ham-fisted and unpredictable way of going about this -- certainly when dealing with velocity sensitive, polyphonic material like a piano part. I think the developers here should look into incorporating a midi compression and/or velocity limits function like most other DAWs nowadays (Cubase, Logic, the latest version of PT, sonar, etc). Just my 2 pesos. J
  9. Thanks Greg. And may I say that I'm receiving a fine first impression of the world Of SAM based not only on the great audio but upon the experienced, intelligent and good-natured vibe of this forum. Unlike the Steinberg forums where they are all animals!
  10. Thanks JM. Well, I just ordered my copy of Sam pro 10 so I have officially made the plunge!
  11. Hi Frank: I don't see "Quantize undo" in either areas you mentioned. Perhaps a limitation of the Sam demo? Or perhaps a very recent feature... The scaling-velocity trick you mentioned though seems to be doing the trick fairly well. Thanks, Jeff
  12. Awesome -- I look forward to all of the above! Jeff
  13. Hi Kraznet: Thank you SO much for your wonderfully informative and no-nonsense tutorial vids! I'm a recent Cubase convert, still learning my way around Sam, and your videos have undoubtably cut weeks -- perhaps months -- off my learning curve. May the Gods of DAWS reward you infinitely... 2 requests: 1) I'd love to see a vid covering all aspects of automation in SAM. In Cubase it's sort of idiot-proof given the ubiquitous R and W (read and write, respectively) on every plug, vsti, mixer, etc. Sam's does not seem so obvious at first glance... 2) Midi -- particularly midi editing in the matrix editor/piano roll! I am a midi-heavy music producer/composer and still feel a bit lost outside of Cubase's familiar and rich midi editing environment. A vid showing all the facets of the matrix editor, step by step, covering all the essential midi editing terrain, would be invaluable for me! Thanks again, Jeff (PS: need some donation quid to keep you going? Don't hesitate to ask!)
