    *.HDP *.HF2 *.HFP *.H0 *.H2 etc. etc

    All the "special" files created represent different things like waveform graphic information, AQ analysis, Comparisonics, spectral editing, etc. Deleting them slows down your project from opening but I haven't ever had a situation where any actual data was lost that I know of (would have to test for AQ markers and pitch analysis/spectral data). If you are just archiving the raw audio data you can get rid of the files although their storage footprint is pretty minimal. For your own local SAM projects, definitely keep them in place. If you are archiving SAM VIP's then keep them in place. As long as you keep your projects in subfolders these files are very easy to manage...I know a lot of SAM user get up in arms about them - they are not Temp files, they represent analysis of the WAV without changing the raw WAV. You can use a third party browser like Xplorer2 to visually filter folders to only show WAV files. This is great if you are often pulling out audio files to share with collaborators and only need to see the WAV. In Windows you can also just "hide" the file type so you don't ever see them. When I export WAV files from a SAM folder to pass along to a non-SAM user I sort the folder by file type and grab only the WAV.
  2. Independence wasn't showing up for me either and was removed from X3 as well. I tried a manual reinstall from the Magix v3.5 Independence download and that didn't work - it installed and I could run the offline .exe but no plugins showed up. Here's how I fixed it: I manually deleted the downloaded installation file under Documents>Magix downloads>installationsmanager I ran Samplitude X4 as an Administrator I chose only Independence from the Download Instruments and sounds under the Samplitude Help menu The installation download about halfway on the progress meter and then auto-installed in a "Repair" mode - and then everything worked I have my sample content on a separate drive so I just pointed to there for the content
  3. All Sascha's work is highly musical. AM|Munition is my main mastering tool, I feel like it's my secret weapon - love it. I got Presswerk as soon as it was available, great processor and highly recommended.
  4. Brilliant! Great video demonstration. I usually only do manual tempo adjustment without using any TS/PS but this has me intrigued enough to give it another shot. I have a song on my desk that unfortunately was tracked without a metronome, and I want to "knock it in line" - I'll try this method first. Thanks Kraznet!
  5. I’m just pointing out that right now there are methods available to achieve the desired workflow. Some sort of insert multi-track templates would be awesome. After mixing a test track, I generally save all my individual tracks as track effect settings to apply to each track when working on a whole album. If I need to load a lot of tracks, I’ll make a template or use the load mixer settings function.
  6. You can copy/paste sets of tracks from one VIP into another. And you can save/load individual track settings.

    Newbie quantizing question

    In my experience, quantization using the Audio Quantization Wizard and AQ markers works amazing for drums and percussion. For instruments with less defined transients, like bass, you are better off just manually separating and aligning the objects. Melodyne also can do a decent job on automatically quantizing bass and vocals but I still find it faster and more accurate to do both by hand.

    Reverb Send

    Larry, the monitoring mode is a GLOBAL system setting, it is not saved per project. Open Samplitude, open Settings (the “ Y” key), in System Options>Audio Setup you will see the current monitoring mode. Slide “Monitoring Setup” all the way to the right. For live input with Aux effects you will need that mode. Now, build your template. Best of luck!

    Reverb Send

    I just tested this on my system and was able to have the Aux reverb send working fine. The monitoring modes are a global setting. Use Mixer FX Monitoring/Hybrid Engine and you should be fine with both playback and real-time live playing and recording of VSTi MIDI instruments with the Aux send reverb. In other monitor mode settings, you will only hear the reverb send for live playing during VIP playback or record. You will not hear the reverb send while the transport is stopped. For some monitor modes, if the “Mon” button is engaged in the transport you will not hear real-time mixer FX, but will be able to play the instruments. The different monitor modes come at different CPU costs and are flexible for a lot of different Studio environment settings- read up and experiment to find the one that is right for you. Good luck, I hope you get it working.

    Reverb Send

    Are you setting up effects sends on a LIVE MIDI input, or in the mix on playback?

    Reverb Send

    Check if your monitor mode is set to Software/Track FX monitoring or Mixer FX monitoring/Hybrid Engine and try turning the monitor button “off” on the MIDI snare track to see if you get the Aux working.

    Focusrite Support is impressive!

    Does that fix solve the problem, or just solve the message about the problem?

    Cursor

    Tick the checkbox “Lock VIP against zoom out” in Program Settings>General And deactivate Loop playback mode. This will stop your playback at the end of the VIP. Delete extra space a the end of the project by selecting a range and pressing “delete”.

    record on top of an audio track

    OK, I read up on Sonars take lanes and I think I understand what you are meaning. Every DAW has a different feature set and there’s not a direct equivalent here. In Samplitde, you will want to look at “exploding” your takes with the Take Composer and exploring the tools for that feature. And you can create similar workflows by using Track Folders or just using multiple tracks.

    Another Sonar Refuge

    Welcome! On the bottom left you’ll see the Status Display... (From the manual) Status display: The status display appears at the bottom border of the VIP window. Here you'll find information about CPU load, latency, buffer, and current operations like loading, saving, effect calculation, etc. You can also open the status display by going to "View" > "Toolbars" > "Status Display"
