    Strange Sounds - Divine Prototype

    Those are some damn good samples then!

    Strange Sounds - Divine Prototype

    BTW, I see your sample rate is a 96kHz, Independence Samplers are 44.1kHz 24 bit. Why use 96kHz? Makes only sense if you record at the sample rate.

    NIIIIIIIIIICCE, Independence is an awesome sampler, kinda underrated which is good for us Magixians

    Independence 3.6

    Patrick, if it doesn't misbehave, just keep 3.3 - "Never change a running System" :-)

    Independence 3.6

    There was no change log, visually it's the same, same manual, functions all the same. I think the update is for all Independent Versions, i.e, for Pro, and the one that comes with the Suite. What you get depends on your license. I updated to 3.6 with X3 Suite with no issues at all.

    Stop at end of project

    @Factor, You can do this with "Ranges", select a range from start to end of your project, the play cursor will stop at the end of the range. You can define multiple ranges. Then there is also the option to define the length of your project in project properties, first tab "General"
  9. Be careful! Some of these files hold the data of your edits. For example edits on your audio file, or freeze data, etc. I have recently deleted a bunch of these files using Ultrasearch, then I reopened a VIP project and some edits were just gone. Safest way to clean up: Go to File -> Clean up -> Save complete VIP in... a folder of your choice. Open your file from within that new folder and check for errors. Then replace your original folder with this new one. Or, check what files the process copied, and delete all but those files from your original folder.

    Are sales usually in September?

    I see, the GUI, — I was thinking about ergonomics, the option to scale all windows by using vector graphics. Samplitude is still using bitmaps.

    "Samplitude Pro X4 Suite has been on sale for $149 for the past 4-5 months," that's right, of course I know that. Magix runs these Samplitude sales since January 2018 Everyone here knows that. But not everyone wants to purchase X4, for various reasons. I was not talking about look and feel unless you misunderstood the word "design" - the term can be used for other situations than visuals, e.g. design of a circuit board, research design, design of an engine, etc. Since you have already gone through troubleshooting with tech support, that may be a good time to ask for a refund. Best, Thomas

    What is this in reference to? desire, needs, cycles, I didn't post anything related to this Please read my post as some general advice, it's not Magix' fault that nvidia releases every once in a while crap products/and drivers, and they do. Further, nvidia licenses their design to different manufacturers, YMMV. Samplitude's GUI sure should arrive in the 21st century. Until then, make it work for you. EVEN MUCH MORE IMPORTANT, is not the latest version - it's Build 387 now it has been praised by many users here. Further, for all who use X3, tech support informed me that there will be an update as well.

    Every Windows system is different, left alone the hardware we all use. Thus, there are many factors contributing to some "sluggish" behavior of X4, or any of your programs. You may need to optimize Windows for Audio Production, likely if you have an older PC. Check on your graphic card first, do you use NVIDIA or AMD? If it is NVIDIA, that could be the culprit in combination with X4. Not nvidia in general, but maybe your specific model. If you have an AMD card, the problem might be somewhere else. Same is true for ITG, many users he reported best results with integrated graphics. I use ITG combined with AMD to drive three screens, no issues. I had issues with an nvidia card, latency, and occasionally sluggish graphics, but not only in Samplitude. If you want a good score editor, have a look at MuseScore, export from Samplitude using xml. BTW: My X5 "screenshot" is a montage of Digital Performer and Samplitude

    Samplitude X5 This would be tremendously helpful: The option to compare and edit midi notes parallel. The current midi editor is a pain in the brain for composition and orchestration. At least we got a score editor.
