    Take manager in Music Studio 2014-2015

    BTW, I'm glad to hear they brought back the Take Manager. Removing that had practically made Samplitude Music Studio unusable for any serious recording work.

    Go to the Magix support portal at http://www.magix.com/us/support/ andlog in. You'll have to register for an account if you don't already have one. From there, just follow the Technical Support links to submit a ticket.

    The Take Manager used to be in SMS, but then they removed it. Are you sure they've brought it back in the latest version? Have you tested it in the demo?

    Looping a drum sample that is too short.

    Set your Snap to Grid to Bars and Beats, and select a range that includes your sample/s that is the length that you'd like to make your loop. Then use the Track Bounce dialog to bounce the selected range to a new object in your VIP. Then, you can loop that new object and it will be the correct length.

    STRIP SILENCE

    Here's a quick tutorial I put together for using Strip Silence to edit Tom tracks: http://support2.magix.net/boards/samplitude//index.php?showtopic=25769

    Samplitude 15

    Correct, and another short-coming is that the Mixer Insert slots are post-fader, which causes problems for noise gate, compressor, and drum/sample replacement plugs. But you can work around that by putting those types of plugs in the Object Editor instead of the Mixer, which is inherently pre-fader.

    Samplitude 15

    Yes, they share same basic interface, just some of the more advanced features are missing. But in general, it's like using the same program. I actually ran my project studio using Music Studio for a few years before upgrading to the pro version of Samplitude. And even then, I didn't technically feel like I had to--I just wanted access to some of the more advanced features and plugins. Another benefit is that you can get the pro versions of Samplitude at a reduced upgrade price if you own Music Studio.

    Samplitude 15

    Sorry, but to add to the confusion, there are actually TWO current consumer versions: "Magix Music Studio" and "Samplitude Music Studio 2013". "Magix Music Studio" appears to be a lite version of "Samplitude Music Studio": http://www.magix.com/us/samplitude-music-studio/

    Samplitude 15

    You must be referring to Samplitude Music Studio 15, which is one of the "consumer" versions of Samplitude. At the time SMS15 came out, Samplitude 10 was the current version of the professional version of Samplitude. The current version of the consumer version is Samplitude Music Studio 2013, which was just recently released. To learn more about the sordid history of the consumer versions of Samplitude, go here: http://silentsky.net/wordpress/archives/161 ...or for details on the latest version, go here: http://www.magix.com/us/samplitude-music-studio/detail/
  10. Wow, I expected it to be gone from lite-weight "Magix Music Studio", but the Take Manager is also missing from Samplitude Music Studio! I'm running the trial version (of SMS2013), and there's no way to access the Take Manager anymore, even though there are still references to it in the manual!
  11. Yes, definitely a silly thing to do. I mean, why purposely cripple/hinder the performance of the application, when performance is not a "feature", at least from the user's perspective?
  12. Yeah, I saw this, but it looks like it includes the more stripped-down "Magix Music Studio" version. I've never messed with Music Maker, but have always been curious about it. I assume it's more for loop and sample-based production, rather than multi-track recording--is that correct?
  13. It looks like Magix has released a couple of new versions of Samplitude lite--Magix Music Studio and Samplitude Music Studio 2013. Magix Music Studio looks pretty stripped-down, and has some serious limitations, such as 16-bit only recording, and only 2 effect insert slots per channel. Samplitude Music Studio 2013 looks to be the replacement for Samplitude Producer 11.5, and is pretty robust: 128 tracks, 24/96 recording, etc. Check it out: http://www.magix.com/us/samplitude-music-studio/ These are a great (and affordable) way for people to get their feet wet with Samplitude without fully taking the plunge.

    Behringer X32 : nice deal.

    Hi Greg, that's a perfectly legitimate question. I'm only saying--I work for a software company, and rarely are the people who work the booths at trade shows very knowledgeable about the technical side of things. They're usually salesmen with a few "tricks up their sleeve" to show to potential customers.

    I wouldn't judge the product based on the guys at the trade show booth (who are probably salesman rather than technical types) being reluctant to answer questions that may have been over their head. We'll all just have to wait and see until the reviews start rolling in from actual end users.
