  1. correct. BB2 is not multi-out. edit> however you can obviously use multiple instances and also take advantage of the object-based nature of the plugin. Greg
  2. Since presumably the drum MIDI channel is all the same (i.e. channel 10), then the 'Demix MIDI objects by MIDI channels (under MIDI menu) will not make any difference, but I've sometimes cloned the MIDI drum sequence to a new track and simply deleted everything BUT snares, or kick, etc. Then, yes it's just a matter of pointing the audio channels to whatever I/O you desire. I prefer to start out with all drums on one MIDI track with separate audio, and then just edit whichever drums I want in the MIDI editor. If you're recording one instrument at a time, then it's easier just to use separate tracks. Greg p.s. note to Frank - I wish there was a way to re-merge MIDI files (preferably by even drag-n-drop) similar to Demix - such as 'Remix'. In the event that I have to offload MIDI tracks to a collaborator or producer that is using another host, it is much easier to just send them one MIDI file.
  3. Yes, try exporting all tracks as one contiguous wav file out of Cubase and drop them into Samplitude. They SHOULD all line up to 00:00 I do this as sort of a lazy way of bringing in tracks from several other DAW's. Greg
  4. You're in luck. New distribution out of Toronto. MAGIX North America office in Toronto. The company gives further details in this press release: http://www.prweb.com/releases/magix/profes...rweb2476394.htm For sales contact please refer to the details given on this website http://www.samplitude.com/eng/seq/kontakt_int.html You will find all support contact details here: http://www.samplitude.com/eng/seq/service.html Greg
  5. V11 is imminent release in US, and is already released in Germany. Yes, depending on where you're located, you should just go to the Samplitude.com website and see who you your local distributor is. Check for crossgrade deals if you're already using another host, or just see if there's any upgrade deals going on. Greg
  6. Which version of Samplitude do you have? How many ASIO channels do you have setup on your soundcard? Greg
  7. pull-down menu to access plugins on your system. Greg
  8. Thanks so much man it works! . I have one thing I can't seem to understand is on the master channel I wanna add a plugin like waves or ozone 4 do u know how to add it to the master channel? hit 'm' key to open mixer, and add them in the insert slots on the master channel. Greg
  9. You can put them IN the master channel. Greg
  10. Looks like your system is not seeing any ASIO drivers. Are you using a hardware interface, and if so, which one? If not, then try using ASIO4ALL or the Magix Low Latency drivers when using VST plugins. Also, Kraznet has a video on Rewiring into/out of Samplitude on the samplitude.com website (if you haven't already seen it). Greg
  11. What is your default MIDI instrument set for? Greg Hi Greg, Just got the updates which fixed the problem Reuben OK, good. Greg
  12. What is your default MIDI instrument set for? Greg
  13. you can also use the hybrid engine to hear effect tails while mixing. Greg
  14. It's the plugin that failed to load. Try rescanning your VST folder... Greg
  15. I don't think there is any way to launch an external editor from with Samplitude. I use it's native editor, which is very good IMO. You can just go to the wav file and drag it in or import it into your other editor. Greg
  16. I admit my experience setting up automation in Ableton Live vs. Samplitude tells me that Samplitude still needs some work in this area (as far as simplicity), but is yes very good now. It's more flexible in Samplitude, with more options vs. the dirt-easy way of setting it up in Live - so it's a matter of preference. I have setup automation using an older Yamaha 01Vx96 mixer (that I'm admittedly still tweaking because it's underutilized), and an Oxygen 49, which is very easy to setup in Live, but also has other limitations in scope. Greg
  17. Which automation mode do you have it set for? Try touch or latch as well as read mode. Greg
  18. There's a 3rd party 'dirty' analogish delay line that can do this (can't remember the name), but Sascha's right, that if you even emulate deteriorating delay, that I think the digital realm is too clean for this. What Reaper does is use an aux send to trick the app. into routing back into the host channel. I think this could be done very easily in Samplitude. I'll have to try it Greg
  19. You can have multiple VST's on the same track, just not chorders like Chordspace (which I've tested). Chordspace is aware of it, and I also posted to Magix about it a couple months ago. I DID get Improvisator to work, but only by pointing it's channel output to a synth on a neighboring channel - which isn't that much of a hassle, and lets you freeze the channel output of the synth anyways. Chordspace doesn't work the same as Improvisator, so it's partially a Chordspace issue, and partially a Samplitude channel routing issue. If you REALLY need both on the same channel, then maybe try using MIDI-OX - but I think that is overkill. MAYBE V11 will have this inline-MIDI routing worked out for such chorder plugins as Chordspace. We'll see... Greg
  20. Yes, you can unglue objects. In autocrossfade mode you should be able to use the alt+slide object corners (or crossfade nodes) and the crossfade will migrate as you slide it across the track (or widen the crossfade region if desired). If this isn't working, then try using object-mouse mode. The Audio Quantizing DOES work, but still needs some refinement. Greg
  21. OK, great to hear. Just tried loading veriverb into Reaper 3 and it worked ok. Didn't try scanning VST's though. Friend using Cubase 5 (considering Samplitude) - veriverb crashes on VST scan and when eventually importing it, it supposedly crashes when knob-fiddling and other adjustments. I also tested them in Ableton Live 8, and didn't see get any crashes or errors. Nevertheless happy to hear (and experience) how things are progressing. Thanks, Greg
  22. Sascha, have you worked out the bugs/crashes that people have reported in hosts other than Samplitude? I tested veriverb (demo) in Reaper 3 and Live 8 and didn't seem to have any problems. Thanks, Greg
  23. One way to start is to load up some of the template VIP's and reverse-engineer them. Then just drop down some objects and hack away at them and try hotkeys and whatever commands to see what happens. Part of the problem sometimes is the terminology vs. paradigm, vs. German/English translation (or whatever). Then try out different mouse modes. Doing the otherwise basic stuff will reveal other things. Yes, the manual has much to be desired, and the videos require fast-forwarding or whatever to find out what you want. When I started with this crazy program there were no videos, and the manual was borderline worthless, so, if I had had any I would've played them, paused them, etc. until I got used to basic operations. Things get crazy when you start hotkeying your way through sequential step operations that you find yourself doing a lot, like laying down markers on the fly, dropping in hotspots, moving objects to those hotspots, then setting up groups and busses, and then the take manager and take composer, and then, and then, and then... so, keep jumpin' in and screaming at the damn thing, and some of us may hear you. Greg
  24. yeah...wow...jumpin' in big-time, this is good stuff (although obviously frustrating getting used to the paradigm). All the zoom craziness and such can be hotkeyed to your habits or preferences. There have been requests for options many ways (cursor in place, cursor migrate, cursor take priority, etc.), so I presume they're looking at putting switches in. I'm so friggin' used to doing it the way it was designed to work from the onset, that I just work that way because I really don't know any better. Plus, I span the entire VIP across 3 monitors ('cause I'm crazy that way), so that the cursor can do whatever it wants and it won't fly tracks back and forth to a centralized 'ergonomic' position - which is my preference so I don't have to search for the cursor. Obviously if I'm working on a laptop, then it's a whole other game. Not sure about the mousewheel settings - although it may vary by manufacturer, and I seem to recall a request a while back for an .ini setting that would change the step, but I can't remember if/where there was a solution. You can try holding ctrl or shift key whilst wheeling and see if there is a tighter 'step' or no step resolution. Hang in there, and it will all suddenly hit you soon enough that Samplitude just may be 'the one' Greg
