  1. Hi and thanks yes I am talking about plugins that dont have a built in patch browser. Ok then, since I am a preset junkie, this would drive me beyond insane. bake to cubase and sonar! I tried! Thanks for trying... Have fun over there. Greg
  2. Yeah! But why? O.k., I Understand but... Don't get me wrong I had the same on my computer (including V5 but except V10 on XP) and I always thought that I would switch maybe back for one project for any reason. But it never happend so on my new Notebook I just installed V10 and I'm fine with that. I already mixed a lot with V10 and sent it to someone with V8.31 for some more editing he does and got it back afterwards to go on...no problems! So for me there is no reason to keep my harddrives full with the older versions anymore. Best wishes, Peter Like I said, no particular reason. Just nostalgic. Actually on my main DAW now it's just V10.x and 7.23, which I use for mixdown ITB routing through Scope environment. Greg
  3. I use the template approach - even for just recording my own tracks at home since I don't want to lose the 'creative moment' farting around with settings. My template has two guitar, bass, drum (MIDI) all ready to go - as well as all relevent effects/plugins. Not sure about the Mackie 'sweet spot' approach... Greg
  4. Believe it or not I still have V6, 7.x, 8.x, 9.x, and now V10 on the same machine. Somewhere I have the original V5.x floppies Call me nostalgic. Greg
  5. Actually, I've been doing more label remix work almost exclusively using 99% Sasha's plugins. Ammunition is friggin' awesome! Greg
  6. With Samp. 10's latest MIDI upticks in features such as full automation, I believe Magix closed the last of the 'gaps' between it's native MIDI functionality and something like Cubase. Even with V9.x I found myself no longer needing to go external to Samp. for ANY MIDI functions, and I'm getting pretty deep with MIDI guitar, routing/layering, sequencing, comping, etc. I personally think the 'MIDI argument' is over. Besides, it comes down to the AUDIO quality, and NOTHING beats Samplitude. I don't CARE what anyone says about the other hosts anymore. Believe me I've done my own tests over the past 12 years + in DAWS (Atari Logic anyone), and am not turning back after using Samplitude since V5.x. The problems people have seem to be very sparse compared to the number of users that have stable systems. I've read through the other hosts' forums and see a LOT more complaints about bugs and incompatibilities with computer setups or VST's, or whatever. I say stick with Samplitude and we'll all help you have fun and keep things stable! Greg
  7. Videos up on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_quer...p;search=Search Kraznet's great videos http://support.magix.net/boards/samplitude...showtopic=12091 I think there are some people working on videos for V10. Greg
  8. WOW, you have a serious problem if you do not hear anything above 8k. For mastering you need GOOD EARS. And a lot of experience with GOOD EARS. cheers, peter All native plugins, EQ, etc. are superb in Samplitude. Amphibia is my first go-to plugin for inline compression on drums and guitars. The new Ammuunition in v10 is awesome! Greg
  9. Try picking a range that is 4 beats long (or any number of beats you want), and hit the 'y' key. Set your tempo to match 4 beats based on the range. Sortof tricky, but doable. In V10 you can do it a little faster with the new audio quantize feature. Greg
  10. Here are some high-end users on OrangeHillAudio's website http://orangehillaudio.com/spotlight/ Greg
  11. yes, because the Classic is not really a mastering program. There're too much missing things. I think the OrangHill offer just before the v10 is a gift ... cheers Phil Everything you'll ever need is in the Pro. Go for it, since v10 is coming soon! Greg
  12. Welcome aboard Neil Finn (from Crowded House - hehe). I suppose I'll see you over at the Scope planetz.com forum as well. Have fun! Greg
  13. You may not find any Samplitude demos in any stores. Most dealers are unfortunately totally ignorant. If you're in LA there is audiomidi, but I' don't know of any other stores. Perhaps if you post where you are there may be some users in your area (?) Good luck, Greg San Diego
  14. There are some tutorial videos up on youtube: Have fun, Greg
  15. I'm still investigating whether the surround encoding in Video Deluxe or Movie Edit Pro are 'real' surround, or just stereo emulated functions. Greg
  16. You can always just 'compose' in Acid and then export the whole tracks into Samplitude for sweetening and mixdown. Greg
  17. for speed = hotkeys! Acid files (wav's) - you can fly the loops in just fine in Samplitude. You can't 'draw' them in like in Acid, but you can bulk-copy along the time line - and it's all non-destructible. elastic function is great because you can do the stretch by pitch OR time, OR both - on a per object basis! MIDI functionality in Samplitude 9.1 is awesome and in my opinion matches the other MIDI-centric hosts out there. video can be imported as .avi's and I'm also toying with synchronizing via MTC with Magix Video Deluxe for other video-centric requirements. Greg
  18. What is your hardware? Make sure you have all your tracks mapped to a different input (right-click over R in tracks). Then you should be able to ctrl-click all the tracks you need. Greg
  19. In many other discussions on this (and other) forums, the guys at Magix have said that GQ is coming soon AFTER the 9.1 release. Other features have higher priority. My opinion is that GQ is a bit of a crutch, when you can just key in the groove yourelf (?). You can probably tweak the existing beat detective function to get some results approximating what GQ does. Greg
  20. Glad you got it working. I had a similar issue after a fresh dfhS installtion on a new computer a while back. I love how Samplitude handles dfhS and instantly maps the track when you bring in MIDI tracks. Try using several instances of dfhS and see what happens Greg
  21. I think you can also change the record hotkey to the key of your choice. Greg
  22. Freezing MIDI is one of the coolest things goin' on! Greg
