Window focus in samplitude PRO x3 (win10)

Recommended Posts

If I open a plugin and do some change
then hit ctrl+S
Samplitude PRO X3 will not save
(because the window focus is still on the plugin window)

I have to click the Samplitude window first
then hit ctrl+S
now it will save.

This is one of many very frustrating thing about Samplitude
and you will not notice it untill much later and maybe lost
some of your work and time.

This is not so in Reaper here short-keys always work.

Why is this default in Samplitude ?
And how do I fix it ?

Hi Goran!

But surely, Samplitude always reminds you if you havent saved your work when you exit.

I may be going out on a limb here, but isn't that sort of a basic characteristic of Windows? How is the program supposed to know "what" to save if not based on which window has the current focus? If the plugin has the focus what does it save? The current plugin configuration; the current track plugin chain; the entire project?

This is not the default behavior in other DAWs, so I'm guessing there must be some way for the program to know. For years I only used SONAR, and Ctrl-S always saved the entire project, unless the focus was on a completely different program (Firefox or Windows File Explorer, for example).

Surely those would be selectable actions, as opposed to default "save project"?

Larry....definately an issue. Im having workflow problems with that as well.

Also with the "transport controls" (key commands for rewind, ff, jump to left marker etc) - they dont work when a VSTi  GUI is active.

Totally against the Cubase workflow im used to.
