Confused About Monitoring/engine Modes

Hi

I am constantly having to adjust the monitoring/engine modes.

I find it so confusing.

1. When I play vsti's I have to adjust the settings to get low latency.

2. When I record audio I have to change settings to hear the input effects.

3. I think I am supposed to use another setting for mixdown?

Can anyone advise me as to which settings I should be using in these 3 situations please. ?

What is the point of these modes?. None of the other DAWs have to be adjusted all the time.

Hybrid with full sw monitoring (full-right) should be most convenient for this. Use Tape Monitoring for automatic source selection. Set the latency as low you can afford.

2. When I record audio I have to change settings to hear the input effects.

You should be able to use the above settings here.

3. I think I am supposed to use another setting for mixdown?

Not really. You might want to increase the latency here a bit, as in any other native DAW, for performance aspects.

Can anyone advise me as to which settings I should be using in these 3 situations please. ?

What is the point of these modes?.

For the use cases you have mentioned I see no reason to use anything else than the "full right" setting. Some prefer the normal SW-fx monitoring for specific cases, which is a legacy mode with special features that are not yet integrated in Hybrid.

None of the other DAWs have to be adjusted all the time.

It's not an imperative either to do so in Samplitude. It's an offer, and option - not a must.

Regards,

Sebastian

I seem to have to switch monitor modes often to keep from getting recording errors and playback glitches. I'm going to check all my settings this evening, but this seems to have become a bigger problem since I installed 10.2. Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
