  1. No agenda, just jaded having worked in hardware field for 30+ years. I guess I'm just an old curmudgeon Mainly only concerned about getting good integration within Samplitude without having to first record into the mixer and THEN dump files out into Samplitude. Or worry about automation. Or worry about reliable ASIO drivers, etc. Gee, maybe for once the German companies will get together and make everything work right off the bat. Greg
  2. Then why did Behringer have NO tech people at the booth at any of three times I stopped by the booth? A business partner and I were eyeing the X32 as a possible tech partner to work with Soniccore to marry up the X32 with the soniccore Xite1, and they were marginally interested despite what a powerful system this would become -especially with the AES or network or even MADI interface. I'm happy to see that it's getting good reviews... Just really not convinced of adequate DAW integration. Greg
  3. So why don't you go demo it somewhere and see if it works? Greg
  4. Demos are demos. I'm sure the unit that moved to market is not a demo. Remember the iphone that dropped connections due to faulty antennae. (actually that defeats me) Why would you think it wouldn't marry Samplitude? Because of a $20.00 firewire card? You record into the mixer and then dump the files to your DAW.I am also pessimistic about any automation working.It IS a Midas front end jammed into a Behringer .The guys at the booth seemed very hesitant to respond to my questions regarding DAW integration. Greg
  5. I've been watching this for over a year, and checked it out at January 2011 NAMM, where the demo unit wasn't even working yet (sitting in a case). At NAMM 2012 the booth people seemed hesitant to demo it. I wish it at least had ADAT, and USB2 and Firewire are gradually dying - but at least you can dump your tracks out into Samplitude/Sequoia. But it's mainly a tracking mixer for raw capture. It would be GREAT for live show-control. Not convinced it would marry well with Samplitude though. Greg
  6. Glad you got it sorted out.Range and loop recording should work also with or without punch in/out markers with overdub mode turned on. Greg
  7. Check to see if you have punch in marker set. Or are you trying to record within a range, because loop button is pressed, and markers are outside the range? If so, then it would explain why the record button is blinking (waiting for punch in). Greg
  8. Sound pools from 11.5 should work, as well as any Magix Music Maker or Soundpools from Magix online purchase. I don't think Indy has loops that will work from the manager. You'll have to load Indy and go from there. SOME of the MIDI-based loops will then load Vita. You COULD get the MIDI sequence you want and then switch to Indy sounds. Greg
  9. Try checking out Tim's post on the main forum, which includes a pdf of how to install on a non-network computer Greg
  10. As far as I know, it's not available and won't work outside Samplitude Producer. There are other Harmonizers out there such as Harmony Improvizator and Catanya - which are MIDI-only. I haven't tested these yet, but I've read that sometimes these harmonizers have problems with VST bridge (because they're 32-bit), but I may be wrong. Greg
  11. No Harmony agent in ProX.You can open Producer projects in ProX, but the plugins are different, etc., so you may have to rework EQ or automation and so on.Otherwise it's pretty straightforward upgrading o ProX Greg
  12. You're on the newcomer forum. A lot more people over on the main forum. PLUS, this isn't Ableton, so even then not as active Greg
  13. Try zooming in a little first before dropping in the loop? Greg
  14. I have been using samp since 7.0, but this idea of 'automation' is a JOKE! the way to automate is to go over the track, over and over, and every time you touch the faders, that section gets 'overdubbed'. This is how you refine fader moves. It sounds like you're saying it's STILL an 'all or nothing' form of automation - do all your fader moves correctly, or manually 'draw' repairs. That is, frankly, absurd. Why Samplitude doesn't have 'flying faders' style automation (especially when you've got a touch-sensitive external controller like I do) is beyond me. This should have been implemented YEARS ago. Are you using Overwrite automation mode? Under Automation>Automation mode - or right-click over automation button (such as near volume fader), and select overwrite mode. After selecting a range, and turning on loop mode, you should be able to keep adjusting your fader, and the curve and nodes should follow. Greg
  15. You probably have your MIDI objects grouped. Greg
  16. Have you tested it yet in Samplitude? Do you own Samplitude? G
  17. You can try contacting Tim Dolbear on the main forum and he can probably help you out. Greg
  18. Yes, you can freeze the track, which will render a wav file in the active track. When you're running Beatbox as an 'object' synth, it's already IN Samplitude. Greg
  19. ...but you cannot (yet) MERGE templates into existing VIP projects. You CAN open up two VIP's side by side, and copy the template settings into a working VIP. Greg
  20. It's been years since they've done ANYTHING with Beatbox, and I agree that it's a decent drum sequencer. It could easily be updated for not only multiple outs, but for more real-time surface controller triggering loops, etc. etc. Maybe some day after they get all the other features sorted out. Greg
  21. Do you have monitoring turned on in the active channel? Greg
  22. hehehe..... Or takes advantage of US marketing ploys. G
  23. It appears that the other boards are basically dead. They are still there but just about nobody uses them. If you want answers about Samplitude Producer or even Samplitude Music Studio MX, this is the only place you will find people to answer them. magix.info works. I just tested it. At times I've seen some the Music Maker and MEP devs over there. Greg
