I'm still going to deactivate and hell, 'reactivate' the laptop to see about any limitation. Although i hear vst sound and meters respond, all that is recorded is a tiny sliver of nothing right at the start of the armed midi track. If you want to insert the same effect on non-contiguous channels, you can use Ctrl-click to highlight any selection of channels and follow the same procedure. You can also choose whether the send output will be direct, pre- or post-fader. Samplitude was already capable of representing varying tempos and time signatures, but the ability to draw the former in graphically is a major improvement in usability. In their place, the popular zPlane Elastique algorithms have been added, and these are available from within the Object Editor or the Elastic Audio editor. But use Samplitude for more than a minute and you quickly understand why it could never be a 'streamlined' application: it simply has too many features, all of them implemented with unbelievable thoroughness.
This, apparently, has been the number one user request for many years now, but porting it is a huge task that requires considerable development resources. Multitrack object editing is a useful addition in this update. A Spectral Cleaning plug-in was already available for Samplitude, but the innovation in Pro X is its integration directly into the arrange page. About halfway through the show, the live sound engineer had applied a gate to the tom mics, which I was receiving post-fade from his desk. I had a range drawn in. As Chris mentioned, you should probably contact directly to get an in depth list of what it can or can't do , as well as confirmation on discounted upgrading, if you choose to step up to one of the pro versions.
After installation completed, start Magix Samplitude Pro X Silver. One of the down sides of choosing an application that isn't the industry standard is that if you need to transfer multitracks to and from other systems, you can't always expect to send and receive them in your own system's native project format. The idea is that unwanted noises will be visible as anomalous lumps or lines of colour within the otherwise regular patterns of the musical content; these can be selected with the mouse and simply erased, in theory permitting unwanted events to be removed from a recording after the fact. It's immediate, it's slick, and nearly everything is handled using drag and drop. A related change is that Magix have abandoned the use of a hardware dongle. Samplitude Pro X2 Silver is only available in the highest price bracket for this bundle and is also why I spent as much as I did on it. By default, these relate to aux send levels, but by right-clicking, you can switch the view to show aux sends, outputs or side-chains.
In general, though, I think it's fair to say that Samplitude is still not a product of the minimalist school of software design. At first glance, Samplitude's interface is functional and fairly busy, with strips of buttons running along the top and bottom. Tackling these with volume automation, or conventional editing, can leave an audible 'hole', whereas spectral editing often does an unparalleled job of preserving the wanted parts of the signal.

If you haven't come across this technique before, it sees the contents of an audio file represented as a spectrogram, with time along the X-axis and frequency on the Y-axis, and colour variations used to indicate how much energy the signal contains at a given frequency at any particular moment.

Together with the new tabbing system, it makes the overall window management feel very fluid and flexible. It makes the project very clear, because you need only one track, but you can use 20 effects one after another. Objects that are routed to the Surround output bus bypass the conventional mixer by default, but it is possible to have them feed both a surround bus and a stereo bus. The program runs very stable and smooth allowing me to focus on creating my audio ideas. I don't think it is surprising that I felt misled by the naming.
Lean, minimalist and newly developed, Studio One embodies a lot of current ideas about user interface design, and feels very easy to get to know. Yet although drag and drop is an attractive paradigm in some ways, an application like Studio One is only intuitive as long as your intuitions happen to coincide with those of its developers. Functionality has been upgraded in Pro X2. I'm saying these are things I would check for. Magix told me that the reasons for this are historical. The new docking features, the reworked Object Editor and so on certainly help to give it a friendlier face, but it is nevertheless easy to feel intimidated by the sheer number of buttons, windows, menu options and dialogues in evidence.
If you're a fan of 'streamlined' interfaces such as are found in Presonus's Studio One or Ableton Live, this might not be to your taste, but reflects the amazing density of features that are found in Samplitude and the thoroughness with which they are implemented. Despite the changes to the user interface that Magix have made in this version, I don't honestly think that anyone would consider it 'immediate'. Other new features include better tempo-mapping facilities, Eucon support for Avid's Artist series controllers, surround mixing and improved 'visualisations' of which more presently. And, in general, its contents reflect what Robin Bigwood said in his review of Independence 2: what there is sounds excellent, but quite a lot falls into the category of 'what there isn't'. Recording appears to go ok and the second issue arises when I Stop the recording. The precision audio engine with 64-bit support.
You can also change octaves using the up and down arrow keys. At least it's there in the previous version name Silver X so i assume it's in the X2 version too. It's perhaps not as advanced as in an application like Cubase 6, but caters for most needs, with separate drum and piano-roll editors, and reasonably flexible quantising, velocity scaling, and so on. The key point in this reinvention is that Pro X, which retails for around the same price as Samplitude 11, and is thus a direct rival for the likes of Cubase or Pro Tools, is not at all a cut-down or hamstrung product. It was equally misleading in either case.
