Will Samplitude Go To 64bit Like Sonar And Cubendo?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if Samplitude was going to go to 64bit like some of the other ones are.

If so why, and if not why. :)

Jamie :D

You are one wierd dude. :D

Im sure it will, as long as the installer works on vista 64 Ill be happy, I get to check that out tonight.

Vista 64 Ultimate by the way :P:)

Ill tell you what I want, I want unempty to finish and post his arranger vip skin!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAMNIT!!! :D

Hey Doc!

I know it might be a stupid question... but I'm still new at all this 64bit OS thing ya know! I just wondered if they were going 64bit and the pros and cons.

Sure to support 64bit OS... but what about the sound? Is it going to better or what??

To me... if it sounds good then I don't care either way! B)

Jamie

P.S. More skins??? SWEEEEEET!!!!! :D

64Bit doesn't sound better than 32Bit, at least not for humans... BTW the max. dynamic range of DA converters is about to deliver clean 22-24 bits..but not more.

64 Bit has advantages for memory (sampler VSTis!) and longer projects (32 Bit to count sample positions would mean maximum project length about 12 hours at 44,1 kHz - each additional bit doubles this, so projects can get pretty huuuuuge long then :) ).

I have heard the same thing. The only reason why I will buy Vista (after bugs are fixed, and the music software programs support it) is to be able to use more than 2 megs of ram. I will be buying a new computer soon with my tax return money. With using BFD drums, and Giga Studio, I really would like to have 4 megs of ram in my computer to have enough power to work with it all on one machine.

yeah. 4 megs. That'll certainly cut it. :blink:

(sorry, couldn't resist...)

FREAL!!!!! (as in for real) ;)

However, if you are using large samples and multiple VSTi's perhaps it could come in handy! :lol:

The Neumann digital mics have a patented 28-bit D/A :blink:;)

Well, they deliver 24bit AES words nevertheless.

Cheers,

PS: the word "patent" in this product does not refer to anything that provides the resolution uttered. Gainstaging is an old principle and some approaches to have it patented were already been dwarfed in the last decade.

Gain staging has been around since tube preamps. Cascade, cascode, etc... ;)

some cool ideas long forgotten too. :blink:

Hello !! Has put at all in that that maximum resolving AD 24 bits!!!

64 bits internal process would provide more exact mixing of especially low level signals and more exact approximating at final output for 16 bit and 24 bit.

I will not press in mathematics...

Effect from 64 bits will be appreciable at a considerable quantity of mixed channels and FX effects of returns, and it would be saved the considerable quantity of the smallest details in a sound is more white. Resolution of human hearing though is limited to a frequency range, but thus there are many nuances in a heard sound such as deviation, phase jitter, harmonious components, various smallest additional sounds, etc. which are perceived if their levels is insignificant are small at subconsciousness level... On my belief products "MAGIX" simply would rise on new qualitative level, they and so are very good!!!, but there is a possibility to be even better!!! And I would like to see DAWS from with 64 bit internal process...

What is the target and appreciative audience then for 64 bit audio?

Those people that own the 12.1 surround i-pods listening to classical, jazz, acoustic, or choral music :P

I was hoping it was mainly for bats (fledermaus) as that's typically who I compose for.

Hello,

I'm currently looking for another sequencer as I want to do the leap to a 64 bit DAW and for that reason I'm new to Samplitude. I can't get any info from the Magix homepage if Samplitude is a 64 bit application or if it's still 32 bit, anyone shed some light on this?

If it is available as a 64 bit native do anyone successfully load even more than 4 GB of samples in a software sampler (Native Instruments Kontakt 3.5 strictly speaking)?

Anyway, thanks in advance.

hi,

only 32b now.

Working fine on a i7+Win7 64b system, with 12gb ram. Win7 sees all the memory, but I have no idea how much Sampliquoia "sees" and support.

best

Samplitude will be 64-bit soon I believe.

Thanks to both of you.

Phil, do you have another sequencer on that system running that adress more than 4 GB RAM, and if which one is it? ...Nice studio btw.!

thanx ;)

no I don't have another sequencer in this computer.

Greg, or any other specialist / beta tester, is there a LAA version of Sampliquoia v11 ? or have you some info about the release of the 64b version ?

happy new year !

V11 is LAA by default.

No info. on 64-bit.

+1 Great way of putting it!

Look the OP and some others are getting very confused.

1. "Samplitude running in 64 bit" is already possible with the lAA versions and the biggest benefit is the program being able to use more then 4 GB of ram.

2. "Samplitude's audio engine is 64 bit float and all calculations are performed at 64 bit float throughout the signal path. (basically the same thing samplitude does now BUT with 32 bit float).- Samplitude does not do this yet and I would love to hear if Sam planning the jump. The benefits of 64 bit audio are real. It would be amazing if Sam decided to do it's version of 64 bit float and upgrade all its internal plugins to 64 bit float.

I have lost the paper that explained how they did this. It is not 28 bits of LPCM -- I think it involves some noise shaping. By direct observation, there are visible quantization steps on large drum transients. The session was being tracked to Pro Tools, and I could see large steps on the computer screen in comparison with analog mics that had none. Of course the steps down near zero are certainly much smaller, or the distortion would be intollerable. But it seems that large steps on large signal excursions are part of the design. I was very curious about the spectral effect of this, but there were no analysis tools loaded on the tracking computer. For the record, the mic (TLM-103D) sounded quite good. But I take the "28 bit" claim with 1mm^3 of NaCl.

Interestingly, the new digital bodies for Sennheiser's 8000 series mics use conventional PCM converter chips.

Hey why 64 bit that is only 32 bit higher than what we have right now.

I will wait 128bit with that even the whales and dolphins will be making music. ;)
