  1. After posting this last night, I realized I still have my DVD installation media (which includes 9 DVD's of Independence Libraries) from when I purchased Samplitude Pro X Suite (the first "Pro X" version of Samplitude) several years ago (I have since always just purchased the download version without the DVD's). I chose the option in Independence to install from the DVD media and have been popping in each disk when prompted. So at least I don't have to download 70 GB worth of data (although I'm sure the downloads are compressed, they would still take forever on my slow-ish Internet connection).
  2. I have Samplitude Pro X4 Suite and decided to try and play around with Independence a bit (I do mostly audio and very little MIDI recording). I was prompted to download the Independence libraries, but it says they are 70GB in size. I was wondering if there's a smaller library file download with just a basic smattering of instruments, rather than the full 70GB library. I'm not even sure if I'll end up using this very much, so I don't particularly want to use up that much free disk space on something that may go unused.
  3. You would need to insert some tempo markers. Just search Google or the forum for "tempo marker" and you should find what you're looking for.
  4. BTW, I'm glad to hear they brought back the Take Manager. Removing that had practically made Samplitude Music Studio unusable for any serious recording work.
  5. Go to the Magix support portal at http://www.magix.com/us/support/ andlog in. You'll have to register for an account if you don't already have one. From there, just follow the Technical Support links to submit a ticket.
  6. The Take Manager used to be in SMS, but then they removed it. Are you sure they've brought it back in the latest version? Have you tested it in the demo?
  7. Set your Snap to Grid to Bars and Beats, and select a range that includes your sample/s that is the length that you'd like to make your loop. Then use the Track Bounce dialog to bounce the selected range to a new object in your VIP. Then, you can loop that new object and it will be the correct length.
  8. Here's a quick tutorial I put together for using Strip Silence to edit Tom tracks: http://support2.magix.net/boards/samplitude//index.php?showtopic=25769
  9. Correct, and another short-coming is that the Mixer Insert slots are post-fader, which causes problems for noise gate, compressor, and drum/sample replacement plugs. But you can work around that by putting those types of plugs in the Object Editor instead of the Mixer, which is inherently pre-fader.
  10. Yes, they share same basic interface, just some of the more advanced features are missing. But in general, it's like using the same program. I actually ran my project studio using Music Studio for a few years before upgrading to the pro version of Samplitude. And even then, I didn't technically feel like I had to--I just wanted access to some of the more advanced features and plugins. Another benefit is that you can get the pro versions of Samplitude at a reduced upgrade price if you own Music Studio.
  11. Sorry, but to add to the confusion, there are actually TWO current consumer versions: "Magix Music Studio" and "Samplitude Music Studio 2013". "Magix Music Studio" appears to be a lite version of "Samplitude Music Studio": http://www.magix.com/us/samplitude-music-studio/
  12. You must be referring to Samplitude Music Studio 15, which is one of the "consumer" versions of Samplitude. At the time SMS15 came out, Samplitude 10 was the current version of the professional version of Samplitude. The current version of the consumer version is Samplitude Music Studio 2013, which was just recently released. To learn more about the sordid history of the consumer versions of Samplitude, go here: http://silentsky.net/wordpress/archives/161 ...or for details on the latest version, go here: http://www.magix.com/us/samplitude-music-studio/detail/
  13. Wow, I expected it to be gone from lite-weight "Magix Music Studio", but the Take Manager is also missing from Samplitude Music Studio! I'm running the trial version (of SMS2013), and there's no way to access the Take Manager anymore, even though there are still references to it in the manual!
  14. Yes, definitely a silly thing to do. I mean, why purposely cripple/hinder the performance of the application, when performance is not a "feature", at least from the user's perspective?
  15. Yeah, I saw this, but it looks like it includes the more stripped-down "Magix Music Studio" version. I've never messed with Music Maker, but have always been curious about it. I assume it's more for loop and sample-based production, rather than multi-track recording--is that correct?
