  1. I used a cheap Squier Affinity P-Bass and the Ampeg SVX plugin on some recordings and was very pleased with the sound.
  2. this is due to latency compensation
  3. it's the reason it use samplitude. I remember it took me about 5 min to understand how to record and mix, without reading the manual. it was with sequoia 7 at a friend's homestudio. I was using logic platinum then and have tried cubase 3 but samplitude is much easier to use than either of them.
  4. I use Elektrik piano, have not heard of the others... Elektrik sounds good, but the controls are weird...well they are not all there. different controls appear depending on the patch you load...
  5. thanks for the help. I might have been using too many vstis at the same time. I freezed some tracks and it seems ok... I never used vstis before I got V9, so I probably got carried away... regarding the Fireface, well....it's much better than the edirol ua-5 or the Presonus Firepod I had. it doesn't sound like making music on a computer anymore. well worth the $$$$ I think. but I don't know much about audio interfaces
  6. (ok, it seems I activated samplitude and I don't remember doing it) but why can't I post anywhere else ? how should I set up the fireface and sam 9 I get clicks and pops and don't know how to get rid of them.. where can I find all the infos about setting up the soundcard and sam ?
  7. ok, I have my new PC and Sam V9. great ! but I have a few problems : - I can't register (the "program activation" thing in the help menu can't be clicked on) - I get clicks and pops !! soundcard : Fireface 800 asio buffer : 1024 vip buffer : 2048 24 bit playback
  8. hi bill, rme soundcards are recommended by sam-support. cheers, andy ok andy, cheers ! I will get a Fireface 800 then. rock on ! Bill
  9. thx seb to make sure I understood : entreprise = raptor ? just a different make ? regarding soundcards, is an RME Fireface 800 better quality than the Firepod Presonus ?
  10. ok, I'll have a look at these. thx dr.funk any suggestions on a soundcard ? (4-8 mic inputs)
  11. thanks sebastian. is this it ? http://www.memoryxsun.com/x5240a.html or this one ? http://neasia.nikkeibp.com/topstory/001374 Not superlative, but at least very good...pres decent enough, AD and DA work well...trouble free unit...used one for quite a while for remotes, and they produce excellent results...knobs a bit flakey, but protecting them should present no problems... Huge bang for the buck.... actually, the owner of the firepod I am currently using is no longer selling it. as I have to buy a new one do you have any recommendation or should I get a Firepod ?
  12. ok, thanks. a few more questions : will samplitude 9 work with Vista ? or what's the best OS for sam 9 ? will sam9 work better/faster with a quadcore cpu ? any opinions on the Firepod ?
  13. hello I am a guitarist and record demos at home. I use VSTis (ezdrummer, elektrik piano, B4) and Amplitube 2 (for test guitar tracks) I have 30-50 tracks on my songs. (can be more) I want to get samplitude 9 and the best system for it. I have a Presonus Firepod, but can get another one if that's not good enough. opinions ? as I don't know much about computer stuff, can anyone please help me find the right equipment ? I read this : http://support.magix.net/boards/samplitude...showtopic=10870 if there is nothing to add, then I will go with it. I have always used AMDs but do Intels work better ? a friend of mine mentionned Raptor disks and Raid 5. do I need that ? thanks in advance for your help
