    Setup another Monitoring/Solo Bus?

    It appears there are some ways to set additional buses to be called a 'monitor' bus. Not exactly what I was looking for, but that work around will do. The other option was just to migrate over to Cubase. I also just got a Mackie 'Big Knob,' and with this I can control the volume from two separate outputs from my VS-100. Actually this will work better than having a software volume controller.
  2. Samplitude may attempt to use the Magix low-latency ASIO driver when you first run Samplitude with the VS-100. You can change this to the regular VS-100 ASIO on the splash screen option 'Audio Setup.' I checked the latency of both, and they are about the same, but apparently the Magix ASIO is a WDM wrapper for ASIO4all, or something similar. While it did run fine in Samplitude, switching over to Sonar caused some issues. All the advice I received was just to run the regular ASIO drivers. I never did use the VS-100 with Win8, but it does work well with Win10. Nice way to use the Motif 6! I will take another look at the digital outs for the Motif. One thing I did like when I tried Cubase was that it already had all the instrument setup for the motif since it was a Yamaha product. The foot pedal I use with the VS-100 is the Boss FS-6. It took just a little configuration in Samplitude to get it working. I could send you the .cpsxml file for the changes I made if you want. It isn't perfect, as I only mapped out the basic transports for the foot pedal.
  3. I intermittently use my headphones and my studio monitors. I see where the Solo/Monitoring Bus can be set to an output and volume controlled with the Monitoring Volume knob. Fine. I can set the output of this to my headphones and control the volume with the Monitoring Knob while leaving the Master fader at unity. Occasionally I like to use my studio speakers. The output of the Master bus can be set to these speakers, but I cant see any simple way to control the volume on the computer screen. this is where I like the 'Control Room' in Cubase, as I can easily setup as many Monitoring buses and easily switch between them. In Sonar I could set up sends off of the Master Channel to control volume to both headphones and speakers. I dont see a way to set up sends off the Master Bus in Samplitude. Is there a way to set up another Solo/Monitoring Bus to allow me to control the speaker volume in Samplitude? Thanks for your responses! Somehow I think I am missing something very simple here!

    Thank you, Kraznet!

    Excellent and to the Kraznet point videos. My guess is that someday, instruction videos will be called Kraznets. Thanks!
  5. Glad you stopped by! I have had both pieces of equipment for quite some time. The VS-100 works well with Win 10. I do have the VS100 setup as a control surface mostly for the foot pedal. I use it for play/stop and recoding when I am both at my desk and remote for voice and guitar. The Motif 6 has been with me for awhile as well. I don’t quite utilize all the outs or any of its sequencing capabilities. AZSlow ‘s ACcontroller made it possible to use it as a control surface as well, but that was more a lesson in what was possible. I had been trying to use that as a control surface for years. Now it’s big function is as a keyboard, as I have the MCU pro. I also got TouchOSC connected to Samplittude. Some of which I enjoy the challenge. Many wishes to your ongoing endeavors to making music! bart
  6. Hello, and thanks for the download. It all took awhile, as I had to make a MEGA account, download their desktop software because of the size of the file, and the download itself. I had originally gotten the DVD's as my broadband isn't all that broad!. I then had to copy all 9 DVD's to my hard drive, and then replace the 'corrupted' file with your file. Then reinstall everything. It appears to have all gone well, as the couple of Independence programs that I tried loaded appropriately. Thinking about all this, I remember that Samplitude crashed several times when I was originally installing the Independence content through the Independence menu while Independence was a loaded synth in a track. Then I discovered or read that you could install the content under the Independence content installation path without Independence being opened. thanks again. I will be looking at some of your videos on Samplitude operations over the next week. balinas
  7. Hello. First time user of SamplitudePRO X3. Everything is installed. I am up and running with audio and midi through my Sonar VS-100 interface. I can load Independence and play midi notes to it from my Yamaha Motif classic 6. I can hear the notes over speakers or headphones. Running through the different Independence PRO instruments I have noticed that a few give me a 'Cannot load file' box followed by 'corrupted or unknown file format.' Most instruments play just fine. I have tried to attach a screen shot of these no-go boxes. Most of the ones that wont play seem to be found on Content Image File 05 and tend to be percussion instruments. I have run checkdisk on my hard drive and no bad sectors were found. How do I try to get playable files into these sectors? Do I have to delete the whole 10G + of instruments? What procedure is the most efficient way to re-install these? Frankly sitting through the many install DVD's wasn't a whole lot of fun to do! Or is it possible to that one of the DVD's is 'bad?' your advice is most appreciated! thanks, balinas
