Uad1 Sounding Better-am I On A Trip?

Recommended Posts

Im demoing Samplitude 10 PRO for the second day.

im running Cubase4 and realized its time to try out other DAWs

before investing money in plugins.

i did insert a pulteq eq and afterwards tried the 140 plate on the send.

it did took my breath away and i was shutting down my pc.

later this night i was playing my testfiles to a friend of mine who is

musician.i was switching many times between Cubase and Samplitude.

he admitted that he did hear a professional reverb out of my pc for the first time,

while i was using the demo.

But so am i.

and thats why id like some moderators or members to chyme in

and solve my confusion.

if this should not be theoretically up to to the daws what is it ?

my soundcard?(RME Multiface2)

my brain?

thanks

Welcome here,

You just discovered what the most here on this board have experienced. Samplitude/Sequoia audio-engine is (one of) the best sounding of all DAWs. :blink:

If the moderators on the Steinberg forum wouldnt be so inpolite i still wouldnt look

any further.On the reviews of my magazines what we call "sound" is not mentioned positively.

So i just overlooked Samplitude.

thanks for your reply

You've discovered the secret - that Samplitude 'sounds better' - in actuality it's engine is more transparent.

All the arguments elsewhere about dithering this and summing that have NOTHING to do with what happens INSIDE the application itself.

And you'll find very few, if any rudeness in the Samplitude forums :blink:

Samp is especially nice to rooms and verb, that's where you really hear the difference.

mathis

i was away from music for about 15 years and was only used to ataris,tape and a board.

what i missed definitively until now in my digital world is what siriusbliss called transparency.

i think the marketing division from Samplitude shouldnt keep its transparency as a secret.

i had to discover Samplitudes secret the hard way.

i hate reading manuals :)

Some will say that this is subjective but I say its reality! I was instantly impressed with what I was missing with PTLE when I compared two mixes of the same wave files done in PT and Samplitude 10! I could hear clear separation between sections (altos sopranos tenors) of a choral recording that just wasn't there in PT.

Thanks, Rick

So the sound experience is improved even with files recorded on another system and mixed back through Samplitude?

Yes.

Maybe.

Give it a try.

Yes, I recorded in the field using a soundevices 744T, mixed the files for comparison in Samp10 and PTLE.

OK, but what did you compare ? the final CD from each mix or directly from PTLE and Samp thru the same card ?

I burned a CD from the Samplitude mix, then I burned a CD from the Protools mix and listened to the final result. I used the same plugs and every thing was set up with exactly the same settings, I also used the same clock, the same DAW and interface.

Thanks, Rick
