Mixing while recording

Is it possible to mix while you record in samplitude.

I find way to much time wasted when i do a session, just waiting for the recording to end so i can start mixing.

When i work outboard i can start mixing imideatly, a feature i miss in most native recording systems.

One workaround is to use two machines one for recording and one for mixing, but it need a lot of ins and outs.

I think the first system to do this is the one i buy

Is it also possible to insert plugins and edit them on the track i record.

And is it possible to make a new auxbus insert a reverb and so on, meanwhile, you can do that if you use another machine or an outboardmixer

For what i have seen most programs seems to have problems with these things on the tracks you record.

Cause the real timesaver is when you can mix the drums while you record them, so that when the drummer hears the take, it sounds great.

You can´t use effects on auxes and busses on live signals. Software monitoring with fx on tracks only - with latency (of course).

I just tried the demo, and it looks like samplitude is no better or worse than the other sequencers, in this area.

They should make some kind of link for a two computer system, where one of the computers record and the other mix, but without soundcards in both. that way it would be possible to do a stable recording while mixing on the other machine, but as long as track inputs can´t sand to busses, this is not gonna work. currently i´m looking at the vmc from spin audio, on a secong system. but then you´re loosing the tight connection between the sequencer and the mixer.

Has anyone tried saw, can it do it?

No system would be able to do this with todays pluggins. You can mix in Sam using pan, vol, EQ, etc, but you can not add verb or DX of VST pluggins on the fly without latency issues. Automatic delay times for latency is determined when you start playback only. If you introduce a new verb (hence a new latency time) the new delay factor will not get calculated untill the project is stopped and then started again.
