Installation is no problem. Version 8.2 possde a USB key authorization PACE and occurs without any problem. I install Sampitude 4 years now, at work and at home, I have never encountered any problem. I never reinstall the software.
Software configuration is quite prcise in version 8 (especially at the buffers, etc ...), so it can be a bit complicated but at the same time very practical to adjust the machine and the soft type of work performed.
The manual could be more prcis more provided, even if it is much better than before. It still allows the same connatre all the bases.
I work with Samplitude on multiple machines. My personal machine is: Racksen Chassis, motherboard Gigabyte EP 885, PIV, 1 GB Ram, 80 internal IDE, and 250 USBII external sound card RME Multiface + Mackie Control, Mackie HR824 with.
No problem running. Would be difficult adcrire performance but when the CPU is full, there is the "freeze" to work around the problem. so it's always cool.
I use Sat for 4 years, I started with version 6. I used to work with Pro Tools and when I Discoveries Sam, I sold my Digi 001 and that's my G4.
For me, Samplitude is unique, almost perfect to see what is Fast Fashion coughing sound design, music or contrte lctroaccoustique. Trs trs well as for multitrack recording, mixing. It is also a marvel for the radio work (editing, mixing, etc ...)
Weak points are: working with the video. it works, but not OMF. There are no hardware to insert the slices (see pro tools) and automation of the mixing desk is still incomplte. (O of the 9 / 10)
But it is a pleasure to work with this software, especially thanks to the design and object (invented by Fairlight 20 years ago ...) taken over by little audio editor. Each object on the timeline has its own effects in real time, of his dpart to, etc ... FBP can be, cut, copy, he will always have its effects and departure. I never do the calculation of effects (such as Pro Tools AudioSuite). it's happiness, because it is intuitive trs, trs and cratif.
The software installation is hassle free, all rolled ...
The software is super intuitive, I used Magix Studio Deluxe 2004 before (consumer software), then I shall decide to invest a little.
Samplitude 8 Pro includes the same features magix studio, but much more advanced and Labor. I RPET, super intuitive, just need to open the manual!
I'm running on a Sat barton 3000 + with 1GB of RAM in dual ddr, and a HDD Raid stripping.
The software does not ask him even normment resource but beware of the plug-in utiliss. If each object is related by 2 or 3 plug-in, all on 20 or 30 tracks is death, but otherwise remaining objective is a good trs soft, stable and little greedy in resources!
I use it for a little over a month, and I feel like using it ever since. Time to put the keyboard shortcuts in the fingers and go! I strongly advise against pro tools (much more expensive and more galre) cubase (trs ch *** t use). To use an "amateur" I advise to turn to magix studio 2005 or more if (very good software in the same bote to Get You Started and trs onreux little!)
- The installation is done without problems despite the installation of a USB dongle
- No incompatibilities
- The general configuration is very simple but you have to dive into the doc if you want to perform more advanced settings
Config: Asus P5WD2 Premium / dual core p4 P830 / 3GB of RAM / SATA diverse and varied / RME Fireface
the software runs perfectly well under this configuration both in simple editing, using midi vsti, or in sync with the video
The software is and has always been super stable and low resource utilization. I was very pleasantly surprised by the implementation noon (it was not the highlight of the software), user-friendly and accurate.
I am using samplitude 7 years (since version 5), I also use cubase and pro tools, and I think in terms of editing, including the two giants of marketing are very far behind.
Sat solution for rent for studios that start is really the ideal solution for those who want to invest in this soft
Well, it's not a ProTools HD in terms of performance, but for my PC, there is little greedy and efficient trs. It does not plug in all cons, which is quite Gnant. But hey, test plugs with updates downloads just to see the compatibility (buy the licenses then, of course).
Compared its direct competitors, it lacks can be better management of automation (especially plugs).
I use it for 5 years, and I am pleased to see that I'm not the only dfendre such softwares ultra-intuitive. I did all types of productions, he never lach. And that's the main thing. Yet I have tried many other programs + "pro" and it is empty you hear a diffrence in sound (especially the phase), and many other things that make empty the software pro. But still really Samplitude LE soft for me.
So for now, I stay on it, because I find my account ...
