    That would be nice to see... --Ben

    Plugin Restraint Policy - what's yours?

    Metric Halo Channel Strip is available for PC these days as a VST. http://mhsecure.com/metric_halo/products/software/prod-bundle.html --Ben

    OT: PSP Xenon

    Big fan of it. I use the PSP Xeon and the UAD Precision Limiter more than any other limiter. Just depends on the kind of color I'm looking for when mastering. --Ben

    Chaning Plugin Order in the Object Editor

    If you right click on the "on/off" button in the upper right corner of the object editor, mixer, etc... you get an FX dialog. In that dialog, you can easily change order of plugins. There are a few things that are going to be set, but there is a lot of flexibility when you do this. Set things would include the inability to put a VST between stock effects (EQ, Advanced dynamics, etc...) The Analog suite essentially shows up like a VST so I'm not including those plugins. --Ben

    Silly noob's question(opening a vip file)

    Yes. The project (bip) without wav files is nothing. Sounds like you're in pretty bad shape unless you can somehow get those wav files back. --Ben

    Pro Tools user checking out Samplitude

    gluing the track is more like track consolidation in Pro tools. Freezing renders the effects either on the object or the track on the audio in order to save CPU. To move edits around, look for the handles. In the view options, (shift-tab) there is an option for large handles which is something I really like. Otherwise, for timestretching and pitch, look in the object editor and you can reset them there- it is a completely non-destructive process. For automation, you have a couple options. Select the curve you want to edit in the track editor window. Then select points and delete. You also have an option in the automation menu to delete all points. You'll find in Samp that you automate slightly differently because of the object-based editing. You grab objects to adjust gain in the gross sense and you can automate the fader for fine tuning. If you want to move an entire region of automation, you either need to select and drag or just make an object undeath the automation and drag that up or down. Sounds a bit cumbersome, but once you are used to it, it really isn't so bad. That being said, there are certain things in PT automation that it would be nice to see here as well... All in due time, I suppose. --Ben

    Multitrack Recording ala Protools

    You need to make sure the tracks are assigned to individual inputs- unlike pro tools, you cannot record the same input to multiple tracks. The fast way to increment is in the track option window. At the top, by the input, there is an increment button. Tracks can be mono or stereo- you don't need to specify until you set your input. Mono (Mix) is a sum of the two inputs on your stereo channel to a single mono file. After your input routing is done, Click on the record button while holding the shift and alt keys. This will enable all record buttons that can be enabled. --Ben

    Exporting in Samplitude

    There is no OMF Export in Samp 10. There is with the extra add-on in Samp 11. In ver 10, you'll need to get something like Pro Convert to export an OMF or other session format. --Ben

    most stable version for multitrack playback

    Sounds like you need to look at your trackspeed settings... Try running with it turned off and see how things go. If you aren't doing any processing, you should be fine just playing back a few tracks. And O-Tone mode is quite cool for theater playback. --Ben

    DDP in 11 ?

    Not there- been a Sequoia-only feature for a number of years now. --Ben
  11. Open the files like other wav files and they will open as grouped objects on 2 adjacent tracks. Sequoia does not have the ability to put split stereo files on a single track. If you want interleaved, you'll have to select the objects and have Sequoia export as a stereo file. --Ben

    Object Mixer Question

    Not a performance difference as far as computer performance. It gives you a lot of abilities to use effects and processes on small portions of audio without having to automate at the track level. Learn the flexibility and you can do some pretty cool stuff saving lots of time. --Ben

    Arrange Window

    It was introduced to make certain functions in the VIP easier from adding tracks to a lasso of various things that you may want to grab. --Ben

    Buying A 2nd Codemeter?

    Magix does offer an emergency dongle. Call Tom Sailor, but basically, you get a dongle with a limited number of starts. Those limited starts should give you time to get a broken dongle back up and running. --Ben

    It Just Wont Play, Record, Anything!

    Looks like Samplitude is not seeing the right clock. I've tried to use Samp on computers that use lower-end sound cards that resample and have run into similar playback issues. --Ben
