  1. How about when you are running your laptop from its internal batteries, with only the FF800 connected to the wall power? Do you run dpclat.exe to check that your laptop is able to record without lost buffers? http://www.thesycon.de/deu/latency_check.shtml David yes, dpclat is ok. i will try with another software to see if the problem is from samplitude. Hi, Here's something to check-open the Fireface settings control panel when you get the lost asio buffers in Sam.If you see errors reported in the Fireface settings,then there is a firewire throughput problem that may be causing the lost asio buffers. Try a different firewire cable,and also try reducing the number of channels in use with the "limit bandwidth" option in Fireface settings. Regards, George
  2. Hi, In the mixer,check the small folder icons at the bottom of the "snapshots" section.The one on the right,"save mixer setup",will save a .mix file that you can then open in the batch processing "Effect Preset-Mixer Master Channel" section. Just select the"Load Preset" button. Regards, George
  3. Hi Mike, As noted in my latest support email,your Emergency CodeMeter was shipped on the 17th, and should arrive today(3/19).Let me know if you have any questions,issues etc. Regards, George
  4. Hi, Try opening a 48k VIP;there maybe a sample rate limitation to the Audigy SE's asio driver. You could also try using the Magix Low Latency 2008 Asio driver,then launch the control panel and select the Audigy SE as the audio device. Regards, George
  5. Hi Sebastian, Good points,thanks for that! Regards, George
  6. Hi Sebastian, Samplitude 10 Master and Sam 10 (non-Pro) do not ship with a CodeMeter,so the user "probably" has Sam 10 Pro. Activation of any version using the CodeMeter generally requires the transfer of a Wibu control file from the CodeMeter in question to us.The user then receives a corresponding Wibu control file containing the appropriate license information. Registration of Sam Pro specifically requires uploading the Wibu control file during the registration process,for example. My guess is that the user has simply not registered Sam 10 Pro.Sam 10 Master and Sam 10 non-Pro will run for thirty days before registration with or without a CodeMeter;the installers for all three versions are on the DVD. At any rate,once we get his Wibu control file,we can get him sorted out. Thanks for your input, George
  7. Hi, What version of Samplitude 10 are you using? Which OS are you using? Which buffer settings did you adjust? Are you using the latest version of the Audigy SE driver?(1.04.0077) Regards, George
  8. Hi, If you haven't yet registered your Samplitude 10 Pro,you may want to have a look at this tutorial: http://www.samplitude.com/eng/seq/registration_tutorial.html If you are still having problems registering,please contact us directly via proservice@magix.net Regards, George
  9. Hi, Maybe something like this? http://www.overloud.com/en/products/index.php?catid=49 Although they don't conform to stomp-box format,the standard delay and Ecox plug-ins in Samplitude are excellent.Ecox is especially nice on guitar. Regards, George
  10. Hi, Are you seeing tabs under the arrange window,or "empty space" below the waveform in a track? If you're seeing tabs,maybe you have "iconise all wave projects" selected under the "Window" menu?Try selecting "hide all wave projects",also under the "Window" menu-any difference? If it's empty space below a displayed waveform,try maximizing the window,and position the vertical scrollbar all the way to the top. Regards, George
  11. Hi, I changed your forum registration;you should be able to post in the other forums now. One initial recommendation I have is to download and install 10.2;which does have some changes are far as controller options,etc. Some of the other issues,like certain Magix plugins not being available,sound like they may be ini-related.Have you tried resetting any ini files? Are you using a midi merger to get all three M24 midi outputs into the Yamaha N12? What firewire controller is installed in your PC? (I am sending you a support ticket as well.) Regards, George
  12. Hi, Please contact your distributor: Arbiter Group Ltd Tel.: +44 0208 207 7880 mtsales@arbiter.co.uk http://www.arbiter.co.uk/ Regards, George
  13. Hi, Which version did you purchase,Sam 10? You may have inadvertently installed Sam 10 Pro,as the DVD has installers for Sam 10 Master,Sam 10,and Sam 10 Pro. Regards, George
  14. Hi Eric, Try right-clicking the Sam icon/shortcut,and select "run as administrator";does that eliminate the startup message? Regards, George
  15. Hi, Call Tom at 330-259-7914;he'll get you set up. Regards, George
  16. Hi, Once you have your songs ready to burn to a cd,you can just arrange them in a VIP in the order you like. Then,under the CD/DVD menu,try selecting "Set Track indices on Object ends",then "make CD".In the "make cd" window,select the options you prefer,then click "burn cd". That's the basic process;you may want to check the "open manual" option under the help menu,and select the chapter for "CD/DVD Menu" for all the various options and details. Regards, George
  17. Hi Gil, There were some patches available for Sam 6;currently,6.05 is available to registered users. 6.05 is necessary for XP support,but it does not provide Asio support. Asio support was added in version 7 of Samplitude and Sequoia. To get the 6.05 patch,go to www.samplitude.com ,and create a login registration.After doing so,go to the "support" link at the top,and select "register product". Select Sam 6,and then click the "downloads" link to the right;you will see the 6.05 patch available for downloading. Regards, George
  18. Hi, Are you using the X-Fi's asio driver? In Samplitude,Press the"Y" key>audio system,and select asio as the driver system.Select the X-fi as the asio device. Try adjusting the X-fi's asio buffers to a higher setting to see if performance improves.You could also experiment with different "monitoring/engine mode" settings. Regards, George
  19. Hi, What are your current driver and buffer settings?Which monitoring/engine mode are you using? Are you seeing lost asio buffer errors at the bottom of the screen during playback? Are there any other firewire devices,such as drives,connected to the system? You might want to check out Tom's Optimization Guide; a lot of this information still applies to setting up Vista and Samplitude: ftp://ftp.orangehillaudio.com/pub/Optimiz...uide2-13-08.pdf Regards, George
  20. Hi, Are you running Vista on the same system that you were previously using (successfully) with XP,or is this a new system?Which version of Sam 10 are you using? If you're using a version with the CodeMeter,make sure you have the latest CodeMeter runtime installed: http://www.codemeter.de/us/service/downloads.html Also,make sure the Codemeter firmware is up to date. Have you tried resetting the audio/midi ini file in Sam?Hit the "Y" key,and select "option/administration" from the index on the left.Check the box "audio/midi settings",then click on "restore settings and restart computer". Many of the system tweaks that apply to XP can also be applied to Vista;for example,you should make sure "processor scheduling" is set to "background services". To check this,go to control panel>system>advanced system settings>"advanced" tab>performance settings>advanced.If this is set for "adjust for best performance " of programs,switch it to background services. You might also try disabling the superfetch service in Vista.To do this,go to Start>search,and type in services.msc.When the services app is found,click on it to open,and scroll down to "superfetch".Click the stop button to stop this service immediately,then select "disabled" in the startup type drop down. You may also want to delete the contents of system drive>Windows>prefetch after disabling superfetch. Another thing you could try is disabling drive indexing.Go to Computer,right-click on the selected drive,select properties,and uncheck the box "Index this drive for faster searching". Regards, George
  21. Hi, In Samplitude,hit the "Y" key to bring up your system options.In the "monitoring setup" section,try moving the slider to the "software monitoring/economy engine" setting(third from left).Do you still get the errors? Regards, George
  22. Hi, I'm not certain about the current assessment of porting Sam to OS X ,but I would like to mention that Samplitude runs very well on supported Mac hardware via Apple's Boot Camp or with virtualization software such as Parallels Desktop,etc. Regards, George
  23. Hi, You can open the plug-in/routing dialog window by right-clicking in the insert field of the mixer. There's some additional information here: http://support.magix.net/boards/samplitude...&hl=directx You can find the DxPlugins.ini file in your Samplitude folder,but you will need to make sure your folder options are set to display extensions. Go to Start>control panel>folder options>view,and in the "advanced settings" section,locate and uncheck the box for "hide extensions for known file types",click "apply",and "ok". Regards, George
  24. Hi Putte, This is really very easy to do- using Apple's Boot Camp Assistant software,you first create a FAT 32 or NTFS partition on your hard drive.You also use Boot Camp Assistant to create a driver CD for your Mac. Then,just install XP(or Vista) to that partition as you would on any PC,and install the drivers. If I remember correctly,for XP you will need a disk with service pack 2;if necessary,you can create a "slipstreamed" install CD with SP2. After installing XP,you can install Samplitude and make any performance tweaks you like,such as setting processor scheduling in Windows to background services,etc. You can set which OS the machine boots into via control panels in each OS,or by holding down the "option" key at startup. All in all,this setup works very well,and performance is on par with any PC using similar hardware.It's a great way to transition into using Samplitude. Finally,as far as moving from Logic to Samplitude goes,the two programs perform many of the same functions,but operate very differently.When I switched from Logic (to Samplitude 7),I found it was much easier and faster to record and edit audio in Samplitude than it was in Logic .However,I'm not familiar with Logic 8,so I can't really comment on the differences between it and Samplitude 10.I recommend downloading the Samplitude demo to get a better idea of what the program can do. Regards, George
