  1. Hi Craig, That should be Magix.info not .com Forum for MAGIX audio software
  2. @brmichael See this message that the fellow got when he tried to join this forum. Apparently, one does need to own Samplitude or Sequoia in order to join.
  3. A user on the Vegas forum interested in purchasing Samplitude has the following queston: He doesn't have Samplitude so can't join the forum. An example of what he does is: documentary with a lot of sound effects, interviews, voice-overs, music scores, and so on. I went through some previous posts about this and the answers and comments were all over the place with the exception of this one asked by Kraznet. If you do not use or have not used Samplitude for this, please do not comment. He does not need to know that you were not able to import a video into Samplitude or which other programs can be used for this or which ones may be better. If anyone has examples for which they show screen shots of the Arranger, that would be helpful. Thanks, John CB
  4. @BJR In that case, you should have an account with Magix. I hope that you still have your password. If so, then you should log into your account at Magix.com and update your email address. If you've forgotten your password on top of it, then you'll need to contact Magix to get the email address updated. You can always download and install from your account at Magix.com, no need for CD's or DVD's - they are obsolete by the time you get them. I am in Charlevoix and purchase everything from Magix on line.
  5. I don't have Independence on my laptop and I'm away from home so I can't test this properly, but I loaded the Vita Grand. Looking at the on-screen keyboard, it goes down to C-2. It plays the bottom two notes A and A# that you mention, which are just below C0, but nothing below that. Are you trying to go lower than that? Ok. I'm at home and you are quite right, two keys are missing from the bottom in Independence. Strange. And the Vita Concert Grand does not have the same quality as Independence.
  6. Hi, You didn't give any indication of the resolution of the video. Is it 4K, full HD? You also did not provide the specs of your computer. Either way, in your video editor, export to a lower resolution, like SD, and use that. If you have Magix Movie Edit Pro or Video Pro X, export to the Magix format mxv and as Standard Definition; Samplitude likes that. Then you should have no problems.
  7. @jonel It's the free version. Only if you want to get and use Soundpool Loops. I started with MusicMaker and got Samplitude Music Studio bundled with it a long time ago, so I have almost all instruments and a ton of Soundpool Loops. Then I upgraded to Samplitude Pro X3 Suite. I still use MMM as I find it quicker and simpler for just putting together some loops for my videos, and even narration. Anything more complicated and I use Samplitude. To be up to speed with MMM, you would need to purchase the Premium version which unlocks most features and gives you credits for instruments, presets, features and Soundpool Loops that you can use. Instruments purchased with MMM do not work with Samplitude. Independence SAL does work with MMM.
  8. No, not at all. Scroll down on the Overview page to see what comes with Standard, Pro and Premium; 2GB, 12GB and 70GB sound library, respectively. Then look at the comparison chart to see all of the differences between Pro and Premium.
  9. As many times as you want per day if you go into your account and deactivate.
  10. Hi David, Did you mean Surface "Pro" and not "Go"? I have no problems with MM on my Surface Pro 4, i5, 8GB RAM.
  11. A bit stale, but with MMM2019, you can now change the install location. Just remember to activate after installation (previous activation codes should show up automatically) and then under the Media pool gear, select download and install and do so from the Download Manager.
  12. @zdogg See my reply to your other thread on this.
  13. Hi Kraznet, It's hard to know where to stop when doing a tutorial. As far as I know, it has never been possible to record by pressing on the keys of the keyboard at the bottom of an instrument, but many users try. My only point is that when users see the keyboard with the instrument, they try to record a few notes by pressing on the keys. Then they complain on the forum (Magix.info) that they can't record MIDI, the program is crap, without indicating how they were trying to do it. After several go-rounds of 20 questions, we discover that they were trying to use the instrument keyboard. So, just a quick mention that one cannot record using this keyboard would help reduce this problem. Maybe you can just mention this in the description on YT. I am sure that I saw one of your tutorials about articulation keys recently, or was it as an answer to someone? If you didn't formalize it, it would be a good one and a good place to note that you can't record using the instrument keyboard. I don't think that many users are aware of these keys, as seen in the attached photo, let alone how to use them. Thanks for all of your great tutorials, John
  14. Another good one! Unless I missed it, you didn't mention that one cannot record using the keyboard at the bottom of the instrument interface. This has happened to many new users, particularly with MusicMaker (many posts on the other forum).
  15. Hi, You have to record the switch key. Each time the piano roll finds a switch key, it makes the change to the following notes until it hits another switch key, etc.
  16. I think that he is still there but very busy. He posted on the Magix.info forum yesterday.
  17. There are more synths available, like Vita Analog Synths and DN-e1. I have these but I don't know if they came with Samplitude Pro X2 or X3 Suite, or with one of the many versions of Music Maker. Both have Leads and Pads, but they may not be what you are looking for. Attached is a listing in a Word document that I made, showing the Pads and Leads only, for these 2 synths. Screen shots of the 2 interfaces is included. The Word file is safe; I created it myself.

  18. Welcome Mathias, You say that you are responsible for the magix.info community as well. Could you please introduce yourself over there under Forum, Information from Magix.info team?
  19. How about this: New name: Samplitude Pro or Samplitude Professional - no numbers or X's, no Pro X3. Program update: Unlimited use of program* Always get the latest version at time of purchase Plus: all new features for free for 1 year *With the update guarantee you will receive a full year of free new features and updates, which can be used indefinitely. If you reinstall the program after one year, you will have access to the basic version. After the one-year update guarantee has expired you can extend it for a discounted price. Strange? This is what Magix has on the Magix.com site for the new Audio & Music Lab Premium (AMLP). The previous version was 2016; now there is no mention of the version. As a reply to a ticket, Magix said: "All new product lines are not running version numbers anymore as we are moving to a different model with the software that will remain with one version a lot longer but have more updates." This sounds like a type of subscription plan, but without losing the use of the program after one year. To see some of the other new features, take a look at AMLP or Samplitude Music Studio 2016 on the Magix.com site. The basic Spectral cleaning tool now in AMLP has a bypass so that you can playback with and without the selected area (for those who don't have C&R). See link below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/fp3ij9x980i2abz/AMLP%20Spectral%20tools1.jpg?dl=0 Other changes will likely be to the UI of some tools, like Denoiser - see link below: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q29xl1qhx2bd2k7/AMLP%20Denoiser.jpg?dl=0 John
  20. Hi, Make sure that you have updated to the latest patch Also, try running the program as Administrator.
  21. Hi, The version that you have is indeed limited, but it is free and is a teaser for the real thing. Here is a link to a discussion about it. Here is a link to the Samplitude site for your version, with a description of the features and limits. As far as I can tell, it has a limit of 8 tracks (midi/audio), so you are limited. If there is a limit of 4 for midi, you could try exporting them to a wav and importing to a new project, then you should be able to have another 4 midi instrument tracks available, or something like that. For what you are doing, either Music Maker or Music Studio (if you need to record to more than 1 track at a time - up to 4, I think) would probably be suitable, Samplitude Music Studio would be better. However, all of these cost money. Remember, you only get what you pay for. Regards, John
  22. Hi, You started with pretty much the top line program. I don't have Samplitude, I have Samplitude Music Studio, which is a step down. I also have Magix Music Maker which is at the bottom end, but is much more geared towards beginners, with a lot less bells and whistles. Did you download and install the additional instruments and sounds? See under Help for something like Download additional instruments and sounds. Download everything. Here is a link to the Samplitude Music Studio tutorials which should help you. You should also read the Tutorial part of the manual and follow along. This is really the only way to understand what is happening - you have to try it. You can view my tutorial for getting started in Music Maker which is simply an easier version of Samplitude. It will show you some of the basics to get going. You can also go through the Kraznet tutorials on his YouTube site. He has more than 150 of them. Look for the very basic getting started type tutorials. When you get everything installed, let us know what instruments and synths that you have. HTH John
