  1. I've found the open and "cold" quality of AM-Munition is sometimes just what I need on base instruments. I'm less in favour of it on the 2-bus. I tried Molot. I thought it imparted a strange sound for a compressor. And then I saw the frequency response curves in the documentation...
  2. The "manual" for the ProX3 package is supplied in PDF format, as well as in a version you can access from Samplitude. IIRC the PDF documentation is 1000+ (?) pages. The "printed copy" book is actually a set of tutorials oriented to music production, but by no means covering all of Samplitude's capabities. Those tutorials can be found on MAGIX website.
  3. You need to select a Birdline skin for the mixer. So you need either to be on Pro X3, or if on an earlier version of Samplitude, buy a Birdline skin separately.
  4. In the mixer, the second line item named "Dly" will let you set a delay/anticipation time on a per track basis in a number of different time units. It works for both audio and MIDI tracks.
  5. I have only (!) Samplitude Pro X, but I imagine the MIDI editor is the same in Sequoia. Mouse editing facilities are dependent on the Mouse Mode that you are in. Right-clicking in a neutral area of the MIDI Editor invokes a popup window with Mouse Mode selection. I say "neutral area" because the usual right button click in some modes effects erasure of data - a doh! moment best avoided. Therefore well worth a couple of minutes getting familiar with the different Mouse modes - also the various modifier keys, Shift, Ctrl, Alt combinations.
  6. #1 is the rule of thumb that 95% of everything is rubbish #2 is that plugins should be good for fixing something or wrecking something #3 is avoiding plugins that achieve both things in #2 at the same time
  7. I think I will pass. I own a couple of bits of Eventide hardware heaven. They are one of the few companies I love to death. I don't think I could bear the disappointment ;-(
  8. Are you on Windows? In the Sound Devices control panel on the Playback tab, does the device you have selected for output in Sam14 show activity on its output level indicator after you have hit Play in Sam14?
  9. The table below of measured mainboard DPC latencies is due to Ian Cutress of anandtech.com who AFAIK is the only reviewer of mainboards performing systematic measurements of this performance parameter . It may be helpful to selecting a board oriented to audio/music applications. YMMV. (The table is from http://anandtech.com/show/7484/asrock-z87eitx-review/5 and includes results up to November 2013. Refer to anandtech.com's mainboard reviews for up-to-date tabulations). The measurement methodology is as follows: "The DPC latency checker measures how much time is processing DPCs from driver invocation – the lower the value will result in better audio transfer at smaller buffer sizes. Results are measured in microseconds and taken as the peak latency while cycling through a series of short HD videos - under 500 microseconds usually gets the green light, but the lower the better."

  10. This: http://vb-audio.pagesperso-orange.fr/us/resources/vst_scanner/vst_scanner.htm might be useful for detecting ID clashes and other issues with VSTs. The author writes: "VST-Scanner was designed according to two main concerns : "1 - Preventing the host application from self-detecting the VST plugins available on the system. As Steinberg did not provide for any reliable installation and detection procedure for VST plugins, the process remains dangerous and may be harmful. Therefore, VST-Scanner will be in charge of that task. "2 - Reducing the time it would take to diagnose and solve possible problems. The VST standard is used by hundreds of different products which were created over a long period of time (10 years) during which the standard itself was modified. Being 100% compatible has become a challenge, on the plugins' side as well as on the hosts' side." FWIW, IIRC the original VST spec was produced in a hurry so that a competing proposal from Emagic would not gain full traction.
  11. Samplitude 11 Silver has a "Max" option in the MIDI Object Editor which opens a large overview window with options to rechannelize the data, where it exists on different MIDI channels. I cannot get this dialog in Pro X, even though right-clicking in the panel headers of the MIDI Object Editor pops up a menu with "max" options in them - but these do nothing here. There is also no reference to the "max" option in the manual. Has it been removed in Pro X?
