    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.

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

    Behringer Monitor2USB

    I recommend you ask your favorite music equipment supplier (presumably the one you would buy it from) to find out about the Linux compatibility for you, as if it then does not work they will have to take it back. Terry

    Samplitude Pro X3 VST2 Folder assignment

    What I've done for my DAWs is I've moved ALL my plugins into folders named for the type of plugin they are, and all those folders reside within Program Files\VSTPlugins. That grants me a beautiful menu organization that crosses among all the DAWs. I always manually select the folder I want the 64-bit plugin installed into when running the installers. I do not use 32-bit plugins at all, and let them be installed wherever it wants, because I do not show my DAWs those folders, eliminating duplicate names. I've done this for several years now, inspired by a video by Tim Dolbear I embed below. Terry
  10. That's good to hear! Haven't tried it yet, but now I will Terry

    Samplitude Pro X3 VST2 Folder assignment

    Yes, come to think of it as I am reading that, it does come to mind that I think Melodyne wants to install into Common Files. I likely changed it right away during the installation as it struck me as an odd place to put it, but then again all VST3 instruments go into Common Files by default universally now. The Program Files\VSTPlugins or Program Files\Steinberg\VSTPlugins folders are far more typical for VST2 items that I've seen. Terry

    Samplitude Pro X3 VST2 Folder assignment

    First, although you have your folder in Applications/Common Files, that is not the standard location where most plugins you purchase will install themselves. So be certain to include both in Samplitude's search paths by using the folder-icon at the right and browsing to each folder where you will keep plugins. Every time you browse to a folder and scan it, that folder is added to Samplitude's internal list. I highly recommend against mixing 32-bit and 64-bit plugins in the same folder. If you have some old 32-bit plugins, place them in a separate folder labeled clearly, like VSTPlugins32. Terry

    Samplitude Pro X3 VST2 Folder assignment

    Those are the correct default plugin folders for 64-bit VST2 and VST3 plugins. Perhaps Melodyne did not want to install to those for some reason? I always change any installer wanting to do otherwise to install in those defaults. I have Melodyne Studio, but do not remember it trying to install elsewhere. Just click the little folder on the right and add the folder Melodyne used, or move its DLL file to VSTPlugins. Terry
