  1. Dear Forum, after starting MIDI projects with third party VSTis (As you can see here it is just one MIDI instance of BFD3s actual version) I "here and there" have this behaviour: Which methods allow avoiding crashes in SampProX5? When not happening directly at startup a crash to times happens during the creative work in a project which combines Audio and MIDI editing. If you switch the Monitoring Modes in the Audio Settings (shortcut: Y) sometimes BFD3 PlugIn - the only instance here - crashes. I also observed some DAW crashing after switching the monitor track buttons. At times you hear a kind of audio hickup when pressing these switches during playback. -> It seems to help a bit to stop the transport before switching the Monitor track buttons on the VSTi-Track. I also need to change the Monitor settings occasionally for live effects during vocal recording. However, if 128 samples in buffer is selected I still get a pretty long audio latency with the Aux1(Pre) on the vocal channel feeding a reverb Plugin during the recording (Third party Or Stock reacts the same)...This is a method to get the internal Audio effects on the headphone in my at least better known DAWs for a vocal recording situation. You mix the DAW reverb/dly effects on a low buffer setting while listening to the direct input of your audio interface...I checked it back in Cubase 10.5 on the same machine which runs properly to exclude inproper system settings and/or driver issues and such. Besides, the DAW seems to also run more stable with converted audio on the BFD3 MIDI track using freeze objects on an additional revolver track. Of course, this could be a generic workaround to minimize real time VSTi "dangers" of the processing. However, in my view the cpu load should be not a problem in the here shown early stage of starting a bigger arrangement populating the project with more VSTis. My overall feel is that I have to find some stabilising workarounds at least in the VSTi/MIDI realm working in SamplitudeProX5. Again, my quest for a magix composers corner and some experienced advice there regarding MIDI composition in a magix DAW (Sequoia and/or Samplitude). I ´d love to see MIDI/VSTi composing workflows being presented at next VDT convention in Germany. THX Best BX
  2. Dear Forum, I exported this: and got back this (missing files) : How to approach getting all files back in the AAF export for migrating the proper Audio into Cubase Pro 10.5. Just testing, no professional project... THX Best BX Some Pics of the Samplitude export settings are missing:
  3. Hey, for some time I checked a bit on third party VST PlugIns. I found that Samp/Seq work pretty good with SlateDigital for example. Although they do not officially support magix software. Okay A very important thing is, to really take care for a proper USB connection of iloks and stuff. For some reason my front USB dock of the PC seems to be not 100% working stable. Dont know why. Will check... However, this improper reading of the authorizations on the Hardware dongle led to loooong loading times of VST plugIns, which has nothing to do with the software or so. Thought to let you know. In my view it´s not an obvious issue and it took some time to get a clue on that one. The same might be true if you use usb hubs or so. Since I am using the rear ports on the machine (no cables no hubs), everything is fine. Best BX
  4. UPDATE: I checked the admin opening of Seq but still no functioning of saving projects on my Backup FAT Drive. Instead Seq freezes to having to quit force it. Cubase and ohers can be saved on that location, though. UPDATE2. CrystalDisk analysis says something about pending sectors on that particular drive. Seems to be a drive failure. exFat has no file size restrictions, would not take that into account. Wiping the file will be the next step.
  5. Great, Thx Matfle. Dedicated Windows drives w/ NTFS works properly at least with the projects in question. Will check the HFS for windows idea. I like to have one large backup drive for both systems. Thats where some of the current projects with Sequoia are located and worked properly some time ago. For quick edits I used to work on the FAT drives and resave the little changes without having to move lots of GBs around. It makes sensse to move bigger projects with serious editing on a dedicated Windows NTFS drive, though. Would be interesting to know about what to change. Georgs admin idea sounds to be a route to go. THX
  6. Hi Kraznet, that´s clear. main problem is that the save function does not work on a certain drive. I dont know why. after using the save or save as function seq13 freezes/crashes. will work on another drive with your transfer method. thx
  7. Hello tonminister, its an internal drive. it is fat formatted to use both pc and mac files. the project folder is stored on that drive. could be that in that respect there might be a danger with file formats and permissions etc... the program freezes and I use the task manager to force quit the program. I once saw an error message saying kind of that 0MB of the file could be saved. I try to catch it better if it occurs again. I can workaround saving to another location properly, but would be interested, what causes the behaviour. I also guess that the file is not corrupt. This happens to other projects, too, which worked properly before. The moment you save, seq13 freezes. I also tried the project file in sampx5, the same happens. thx!
  8. Dear Forum, at the moment its not possible to save-as projects on a certain drive. Other DAWs do, but my magix software does not. would switch to another drive as a first step. but, Which settings are recommended to save magix software on a certain drive in WINDOWS10 (Sequoia13 here)? an attempt could be checking access rights in Windows and such...maybe there is some experience in the community in that direction. THX BX)
  9. Seq13 is okay as I refer to common routines only. So, would not regard it as a mere bug. But there will be a basic way to merge aligned audio into video in a DAW. Just trying to figure it out. V13 contains Quicktime, though, but will change and check other options, sure. Good Info. EDIT: Setting to MPEG2 did not export audio and video in sync (as heard in the project). audio in the export still is some frames late. Don´t know why. THX BX
  10. Hi Christian, Selecting an area in the timeline. File>Export>Export Video. Checking Export Audio check box in the pop up menu Checking QuickTime Movie Checking Export marked Area only Giving the Audio File (.wav) a name choosing largest resolution in the video pop up, see above. Giving the movie file a name ---------------------- I saw the advanced audio setting in the Multiple CPU check box, informing that it might be a cause of Plug Ins to be incompatible. Due to the fact, that VSTis are still in the project. I try a new export this option unchecked, as the others are. --------------------------------- ...EDIT: Multiple CPU unchecked does not help THX BX
  11. Dear Uli, the original mp4-Video that I use in other DAWs was imported into sequoia after a .mjpeg conversion to add the chance to jump to timeline positions with the playhead with updating the video frame in the video window.. When I exported a demo composition I just used the video default settings that occur and only changed to a bigger resolution. Maybe there is something hidden causing the AV gap, sure. I will try out more. Of course there might be a better known check box to avoid or to check from a more experienced side in the Seq video realm. It´s just the default setting in my case. Seq13 is still completely fine to me for my 2track audio work. As I own it anyways just wondering from time to time using this higher value DAW for MIDI composing, too, trying some tasks here and there. For the moment I went over to Video Software to export time-aligned Audio and Video back into a mp4, working around a bit. I am sure there is a better way from Inside Sequoia. Thank you for your time! THX BX
  12. Dear Forum, after several attempts, the audio of the exported Video appears to be not in sync regarding the projects audio. I only use a already bounced Stereo - Master for the export with two muted tracks using virtual instruments, so there is not too much going on, I would say. I became more alert after observing the cues closer which are perfectly in time in the DAWs composing project. I can call back some already sent demo material, no problem ;-)) But: What is a good setting to avoid the offset in the Video Export´s audio for Mock Ups. Maybe I oversaw something. Thanks for your time for my A/V check in Seq-Land. Best regards BX
  13. I did a fresh rebuilt here . You can see motion of a MIDI Event inside the clip after editing with activated grid in connect all to the right mode. The MIDI Event starts right on the first beat. The MIDI event is displaced to the outside the clip, which you can also see in the MIDI Editor. ------------------------------- Another maybe related behaviour: If you move the clip you see the tempo curve moving in sync. Now: The moment you release the mouse button the tempo curve flips back, losing sync to the clip. I attached the VIP, too. THX BX 2020-03-03_MIDI_Tempo_Event_Displacement.VIP
  14. Great, Kraznet. I would like to dig more into MIDI and try my best to describe this way. I would love to use Sequoia for composing to picture, trying out some moves at the moment. Anyways, THX for your great help! Best regards BX EDIT: Here is a pic. Tried to move a multile selection of tempo curve points with my mouse... How to do? The passage you see should be played back at least 20 beats faster. THX
  15. Dear Forum, recently I tried to move a selection with multiple Tempo Curve points to raise the overall tempo of a edited tempo changing section. Somehow, only the point I touched after the selection moved. I intended to move all selected points. How to do or workaround? I cannot upload any more gifs as some Upload amount restriction is active. How to edit (increase decrease tempo )multiple points? THX BX
  16. Dear Matt, As I moved on I can only recover the issue a bit here. Attached the file. Its Sequoia13 build340, 64-bit. Here is a tempo curve reaction while selecting some clips, which seems unexpected, but might explain the behaviour of the moving clip content a bit. It helps to create larger clips before moving them. THX BX MIDI_Tempo_ConnectAll_Content_Issue.VIP
  17. Dear Forum, Please take care with selecting MIDI clips. It occurs that MIDI content somehow is being moved when a clip is selected. If there is a setting that might avoid this behaviour please let me know... Best BX
  18. Habe anderes KB getestet. Neu gestartet. Auch neues Projekt erstellt mit nur einer MIDI Spur. MIDI kommt an, aber der Step Mode, wenn im Piano Editor aktiviert, funktioniert nicht. Der aktivierte Step Modus funktioniert nicht. Meine Settings: Step Schalter im MIDI Editor ist aktiviert Spur Monitor Schalter ist aktiviert Echtzeitrecording funktioniert demgegenüber regulär (MIDI kommt also an) Auch neu angelegtes Projekt funktioniert mit aktiviertem Step Schalter nicht. Danke nochmals BX
  19. Hallo Christian, ja, genau. Probiere es mit dem MIDI Keyboard. Eingabe über Computer-Tastatur geht. Aufnehmen mit MIDI Keyboard in Echtzeit, geht auch. Irgendwie funktioniert der Step Mode mit MIDI Keyboard allerdings nicht. Auch nach Update usw. Irgendwo muss da so ein Häkchen zu setzen sein, vermute ich.Die Step Schaltfläche ist natürlich aktiviert :-)) Danke für Deine Zeit LG BX
  20. STEP RECORDING ÜBER TASTATUR ODER CONTROLLER KEYBOARD Im MIDI Editor können Sie auch ein sogenanntes „Step Recording“ mittels Computertastatur oder MIDI-Klaviatur durchführen. Step Recording bedeutet, dass Sie die Noten zwar mit Tastatur bzw. Keyboard eingeben, dies aber nicht in Echtzeit tun müssen, sondern sich für die jeweils nächste Note so viel Zeit lassen können, wie Sie wollen. Die Noten werden mit einer vorher festgelegten Länge eingefügt und nach jeder Eingabe bewegt sich der Wiedergabemarker um einen Schritt (engl. „step”) weiter. Schrittweite und Notenlänge bestimmen Sie über den Raster- und Längen-Quantisierungswert. Die Notenlänge kann dabei jedoch die Schrittweite nicht überschreiten. Mit dieser Schaltfläche aktivieren Sie das Step recording. Ein Marker zeigt den Umfang der aktuellen Oktave an, in der die folgende Eingabe stattfindet. Nun können Sie schrittweise MIDI-Noten eingeben. Hier die wichtigsten Tastaturkürzel zum Eingeben von MIDI-Noten mittels Step Recording: TAB Einen Schritt vorwärts (Pause setzen) Umschalt + TAB Einen Schritt rückwärts Strg + Pfeil auf / Pfeil ab Eingabe-Oktave nach oben/nach unten CDEFGAH Noteneingabe in aktueller Oktavlage Umschalt Akkorde eingeben Solange Sie die Umschalttaste gedrückt halten, können Sie verschiedene Noten eingeben, ohne dass der Abspielmarker weiterspringt. Auf diese Weise erzeugen Sie Akkorde. etc Liebes Forum, Scheint ja einfach zu sein, funktioniert nicht auf Anhieb bei mir. Danke für Hilfe. BX
  21. Dear Thomas, Ah, I see. THX very much. c100 as default. Understood! Best BX
  22. Dear Forum, I lowered the Volume Fader (in MIDI Volume Mode) on a MIDI Track. After setting it back to 0dB I have the impression that the MIDI Volume is too low. How to make sure that the default Value is set back to where it was before. How can I check that? Maybe there is some other place to reset to the default MIDI Volume of a track. THX BX
  23. Dear Forum, Working with Melodyne... I have difficulties importing a single track from another project using samplitude pro x4. It would be sufficient to import a clip with ARA melodyne edits in it, though. I searched around some time but was not able to find a clue on how to do that. My aim is replacing a corrupted ARA Melodyne clip (it does not play audio anymore) from an older Backup project. THX for help!!! Best regards BX
  24. I tried a lot with the settings you mentioned. My best shot as starting out is not to use the VST PlugIn in addition to the ARA clips. After a restart of Samplitude, the playback seems to be independent of the Mono setting and the Monitor switch on the channel strip. Glad to see some tuts in Melodyne Samp respect. :-) THX BX
