I Have A Problem!

Recommended Posts

Yup - I have a problem. I downloaded the demo version of Sam Pro 9 and I really wish I wouldn't have because now I have to come up with $999 to buy this thing! I'm, a long time Adobe Audition user (in fact, as far back as Cool Edit Pro) and I've been looking for something new with MIDI capabilities. I've spent time at a friends house with his Sonar equipped DAW and just didn't care for it. Not sure why. I've played with a lite version of Cubase (came with a piece of hardware I bought) - same result. I just have not been able to get comfortable with either. So - I downloaded Sam Pro 9 and FINALLY I find the program I'm looking for. I've read some reviews that describe Sam as having quite a learning curve. I have found just the opposite - it seems very simple and intuitive. Granted I've tried about 10% of what this program can do, so I will still need to keep digging in, but so far, so good.

So my only reason for posting here was to say I really like what I see of Sam Pro, so far. Great program. Now - if I can come up with the $$$!!

By the way - what's up with the crossgrade offers I've seen online? Is that legit?

Thanks for listening to my rant. Once I make my purchase I'm sure I'll be back with plenty of questions!

The cross-grade offers are legit - well, the ones I've seen - and are exceedingly generous. I just hope they don't put people off who equate quality and price too closely! But these offers will not last forever ...

Cheers,

If you don't need more than 24/48k, 64 tracks, 8 VSTIs, hybrid engine and all the routing possibilities of Samp, you could try Magix Music Studio deLuxe 2007 (12 in UK) wich is a lite Samp9 and is 60€.

Music Studio

But not yet distributed in the US...

Or you could try Samp 8 SE

From these there are also good crossgrade

I was in the same boat you are in a few weeks ago. Saved a bundle by going with the crossgrade version. :)

I bought it thru the crossgrade deal for $399

I used the MAGIX stuff before and while they are good beginer programs they do not use the same audio engine, and it is very noticable
