  2. In my oppinion the MIDI is not too bad in Samp, what I am figuring out a bit at the moment for the composing side. I try to avoid much trafficking of audio material forth and back between DAWs I have my hard times on the CCs a bit at the moment in Samplitude when overwriting the first recording with a cc controller correctional recording. It jumps to the old values here and there. At least, when a MIDI Track or portions of it are done I like the object freeze. It forces the composer/producer to make fast decisions and leave it done with trying to not reviewing everything you did. I think this is one clue to get things done, while you bring it to audio in one click, rather than moving files between DAWs and placing them to the right spots in the grid and such... In my view it keeps the whole project liquid and flexible for overall small changes over time as the moves on the desk get smaller, plus you can edit a MIDI note any time. At least I try to figure out both worlds in the MAGIX world. Best regards BX

    Buffer size and improvisation

    I just make a simple bounce, or mix-to-file if I feel like it. I have it placed in to the same VIP project as a new track, then play along with it with the other tracks muted. Or you could do it into a fresh VIP and export the stem of your playing to import into the master. I freeze a lot if using Samplitude as a composing tool, but I must admit to you that I seldom compose in Samplitude. For me it is my mixing and mastering tool. Freeze is not inelegant by any stretch of the imagination, it is simply that for this particular application where I will need all audio files (and the audio engine slider likely switched to the far left to get the lowest latency I can) and a very low buffer setting for that segment alone, then bouncing is how I do it.

  4. Dear community, I just checked the cc recording onto an existing cc track for orchestration expressions like velocity etc. During recording the values jump forth and back between the recorded values and the old already given ones. So: Is it better to delete the old CC track or portions of it for recording the new run. Maybe there is a latch mode similar to the mix automation for the CC lanes, too THX BX
  5. Dear Terry, so muting in Sequoia helps freeing CPU. THere are some check boxes in the advanced settings to be ticked, right? Sure, the single Freeze is a bit increative. So How´s that quick temp bounce work? I assume, you don´t reimport a stereo bounce with this trick? At least it could contain all the rhythm sections instruments for the groove. This way it would not be necessary to everytime update the temp track to all instruments. For further playback updating the project , would you think about creating audio stems (guitars, strings, percussion, winds) and let them run instead the single real time processed MIDI origins? Just let me know about the muting settings in Sequoia to free CPU, when active. I made the experience that if you bypass VSTs, cpu is freed, too. But you have to do this manually, right? I have seen, that you can create folders in Samp. I will check if you can use a overall mute from the folder track. Would be nice to switch off several instruments with one click. The track manager can provide several mutes also with check boxes, as I recall. THX BX

    Buffer size and improvisation

    I play typically at 512. Usually, my mixes playback with adequately low latency at that buffer setting. If not, I make a bounce-down temp mix, mute all the other tracks and add the piano (or other instrument) while listening to the bounced version. This takes a huge load off the CPU and lets you turn your buffer way, way down if you need to. Then turn the buffers back up when going with all MIDI VSTi tracks again. You can also freeze a ton of tracks, but I find the quick temp-bounce technique to be much faster. Terry

    Re-bar eight notes/quarter notes

    I think if you choose your time signature to be 15/8 , the chosen tempo will be for the eighth notes. Georg
  9. Many many years ago I made a .bat file that removes these files. I use it often to clean up. This has never ever given me any problems. Raw processing software for photographers often produce similar files, e.g. RawTherapee and Lightroom. But these programs offer to store those files in a separate folder. It puzzles me that Samplitude doesn't have a similar configuration option, e.g. by offering an "Alternative peak file location" folder in the "Program / General" section where you also control the other paths. And if left blank, it could simply do what it does now. This is still high up on my wish list. In fact, one of my friends was so upset with this feature that he quickly abandoned Samplitude because he didn't want his entire folder structure full of these files.
  10. Dear Community, For improvisation with a software Piano (Native Instruments), it is a good idea to have a live feel, when playing. How to achieve this in Sequoia with a large MIDI/Audio project with several tracks that needs a high buffer to be played back correctly? THX BX
  11. Dear Community, I have a score with 15/ 8 bar and tempo eighth = 250 Can I choose eight notes for the tempo assignment. THX BX
  12. OK Sonalksis support told me that there is no transfer fee - so I can drop the Price to just 125 euros!
  13. In my Sequoia and Samplitude project archives going back to the days of SEKD, (but mostly from Sequoia 7 onwards) there are now well over 30,000 of these *.Hxx (and previous similar ajuncts to WAV, AIFF, and recently FLAC files). I need to rationalise all this stuff for the record company who have given me all this work over the last 20 years, and I would very much like to be able to safely exclude them from the project folders. It appears to me that current versions of Samplitude and Seqoia will happily re-create them when/if (ever...!) the prjects are re-opened, but I'd just like reassurance that this is correct, from someone who understands their functions better than I do. Do they store any info (such as mark points etc) that might be otherwise not available in the VIPs?
  14. Hey Terry, having read everything now I will check it out ASAP. Great help here!!

    changing FX order in Object editor

    Might have - I hope you also saw my addendum concerning EQ116 that I just entered in an edit. Terry
  16. Ah, great!! Thanks to you both!! I am not sure if Georg already referred to the OE, maybe I did not get it. :-) Best Tim

    changing FX order in Object editor

    In the object editor, above the plugins slots there is a little blue button that you can press to deactivate or activate all of them at once. However, the trick you are looking for is in right-clicking on that button. That exposes a dialog similar to the one Georg mentioned for tracks that allows you to select a plugin and use the arrow keys to change its position. Beneath the plugins is a little arrow next to the letters FX. Dropping down that menu permits you to insert EQ116. (*Do that first, as it replaces whatever else is entered there.) Then you can add your other plugins, and after that use the right-click on the little blue button trick to re-order them. Terry
  18. Dear Georg, Dear Terry, can I change the order in the OE, lets say the fixed EQ there and the (entire) plugIn section? Of course you can assign an EQ into the plugIn section of the OE´s. I guess, you are referring to the channel strip´s order. Just wondering about the ObjEditors overall ordering... THX!! Best regards Tim
  19. Right click on the Plugin button to open the FX dialog. Change the order there to your taste. The Objects come first, then the mixer. This you cannot change. Georg

    changing FX order in Object editor

    I insert an EQ as a plugin in the object editor if I need one in an object. Then I can position it anywhere I like in the chain within the object itself. Maybe I am not following what your situation is. Terry
  21. Dear Terry, Thanks very much!! can you change the order of the eq and plugin section in the ObjEditor? THX BX
  22. TerryBritton

    changing FX order in Object editor

    byxx, I am rather certain that object plugins are entirely separate from track plugins. I'm also pretty sure that they come first and then pass through the track plugins. I've been wrong before, but that is my experience of it. Terry
  23. ok, found the culprit. AM Track, a Magix plugin caused this. sigh
  24. X3 here, Working on a stereo track, did some edits, time stretching, crossfades. (Project with midi, mono and stereo tracks) On playback I randomly loose my left channel, like a dull pop sound first, then mute. When I restart the Program it plays fine, until it happens again (it won't take long) Any ideas what that might be? Thanks!
  25. Earlier
  26. Dear Community, Does the change of the PlugIn order in the channel strip effect the plugin order in the object editor? for instance : How to put the EQ section before the PLUG In section in the OE? thx cHEERS bx
  27. I need to sell some of my plugins that I rarely use... Up for grabs is the Sonalksis Essentials Bundle and the Multi-band Dynamics Bundle. The Essentials Bundle contains: -SV-315Mk2 Compressor -SV-517Mk2 Equaliser -SV-719 Analogue Gate The Multi-band Dynamics Bundle contains: -CQ1 Multiband Compander -DQ1 Dynamic Equaliser The public price according to the Sonalksis Homepage is 190 + 140 = 330 Euros (http://www.sonalksis.com/plug-ins.html) Since there seems to be a high license transfer fee of 75 Euros or so, I can't sell the plugins super cheap, but I guess 200 Euros would be fair? (I'll pay the transfer)
