aerato's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Magic ... forgiveness, Magix"

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
Easy installation and hassle-free configuration, the software automatically recognizes and configures the audio card


I have a rather powerful dedicated PC for audio sound card with multiple I / O rack outside that was detected and configured itself to the installation


I am quite familiar Magix products, their qualities, their stability but also their prices. I moved as much by Pro Tools, Cubase, etc. Cakwalk. not always in the same budget and yet much less complete

What I like most? this app all simply to complete as possible at a price that does surprisingly little to bring the musicians in the world of Magix. This is not a toy but a serious software, built for incredible stability and quality for its price beyond reproach. As I said, I tested many other brands before and now I swear by Sam and product quality Magix and it is no accident.

The least. we could find things, but let's be serious, at this price is impressive there already.

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
Software is very stable and complete. It works with all VST and VSTi. He always installed without a problem, even in older versions.
My use is mostly in multitrack audio sequencer to record my synths on separate tracks simultaneously and guitar in several tracks as well. Never any problems.


Quadcore with 2 500 GB HDD and 2 GB of RAM, mixing desk with integrated audio interface in Alesis Multimix 16 firewire. Simultaneous recording of multiple audio tracks in stereo 24 khz bits/44.1 .... everything is OK and does not crash ever.
By noon, it works well too. No latency on the VST or VSTi.


I have been using the 2002 version I believe, and I had all the versions since. He is improving every year with new features. I think at that price, it has no equivalent on the market.
I use it mainly audio with a table Alesis Multimix 16 FW. I record in 24 khz bits/44.1, sometimes 10 simultaneous inputs (5 stereo), with the software or internal effects VST, VSTi sometimes, and he never gave up. software is very stable, with whom I made four albums all sold, and no one has ever found fault with the quality of the recording. Effects and instruments included troubleshoot good (Revolta is really nice), and drum machines integrated (Robota. ..) sounded really good. And since it integrates perfectly VST of all kinds, in addition to being editable in any direction, I do not really see anything negative in this app ... In short, considering the price, if you want a full sequencer ... go for it!

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
to answer questions, the installation is no problem, I have no conflict with my hardware, the manual should be read before using the software or databases so you have that I did not, c is the same for the config in my case I use it regularly because I was looking for an app that allows me to play the music instinctively, I'm DJ foremost, my gear used with Music-Studio is primarily made to remix or bootleg, midi files I get home and then the sequence is running on my MIDI outputs to other samplers and keyboards to be recorded on another PC or Soudforge Acid through my mixer, then I re-mastered with Sonar Producer X1 on a 3rd PC


My PC is a PC with Intel Core i7-2600 3.40 GHz 12GB RAM 2TB RAID 0 1 (x2) dual boot with XP Pro or seven, the sound card is an E-MU 1212m PCIe, it turns what!


for me it nikel! I will perhaps one day on cubase but not right now anyway

Joy-and-roamer's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent to start the MAO"

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
This software is very easy to install. Compatible with Windows only, from 98 to seven, The main thing is to have a good machine and there is no problem of incompatibility. A manual is available in French in the box and also available in the software. Everything is clear and detailed, all accompanied by pictures.


I have a HP Pavilion Windows Vista 4GB RAM, Intel Core 2.
The software works fine on this configuration, but it is best to use an external sound card to use it. An M-Audio Fast Track Ultra in this case for me. But others also its compatible.


I used this software to start the computer music as cheap and very accessible, it offers good performance even without knowing it too. Before him, I used Samplitude 2008, which for me was much less intuitive (matter of taste).
It offers many opportunities and has already integrated plug-in such as a simulator of guitar amps, effects such as compression, echo, reverb ... In short, almost everything you need to give this label sound engineer!

Finally, for experienced Maotistes like me, prefer a more pro version to the "big box". I chose to stay at 11 Samplitude Magix .. While the price is far from being the same, but the recording quality, the number of opportunities, and the parameters are much larger and better quality.

But according to the experience I had to use this software, I can say that it gives very good result. A purchase of emergency if limited budget

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
The installation is done it without problem?

Installation could not be simpler. A DVD containing Samplitude Music Studio 16 and all plugins, sounds ... etc. .. A single executable that installs all features.

Have you encountered incompatibilities?

No incompatibility date.

Gnrale configuration is easy?

Yes, do that first startup Samplitude Music Studio 16, a simplified notch allows rgler pageantry and the sound card, the type of driver, peripherals noon on file where is the vst (i) s. ..

The manual is clear and sufficient? ...

Yes, the manual is enough to take in hand the SMS 16, however it's a quick overview, it does not go into dtails. A pdf manual is also available.


What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)

Motherboard: MSI K9N 6PGM2-V
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 +
Ram: 2GB
HDD: Maxtor 320 Gb (7200 rpm) and external 1.5 TB (7200 rpm)
Sound Card: Edirol UA-4FX
Keyboard: Akai MPK 49
MPC 2000 ...

The software works he correctly on this configuration?

No worries of operation. Fast opening (after the first scan of vst (i) SrAl. Stable.

What performance? (If quantifiable)

Lger for the cpu (at least for me)

This software + hardware configuration is stable?

Again yes, very stable!


For how long have you been using it?

I use it for a month. APRS a good week to take in hand, it's all good.

What is the specific feature you like best, the least?


The audio engine is excellent (it seems the same as in Samplitude Pro 11). The VST (i) s are given good bills (this award is also given. The interface parameter completely. ACCs Rapid DIFFERENT views (mastering, composition ...) . The design (and yes it is more graphically bloody). Beatbox 2 and drums provided. (I have yet to test the bank also provided loops). UNESCORecords Management of Rewire (ideal for those who also use Reason or FL Studio)


Honntement, I do not see! Ha if the price might be? To be taken more srieux increase a hundred euros. No I DCON! Of course do not do it!

Have you tried many other models before acqurir?

Yes, Ableton Live Suite 8 (ideal for live performance, but may not be the same for the pure compo whatever ..), Steinberg Cubase SX 3 and Cubase 5, FL Studio (I always use it), Reason 4 (also), Sonar Producer 8 (The sound is beautiful, but I always galR with ...)

Also, Reaper (bouncy when reading the reviews, then the srieusement short, I have not hooked), Energy XT, cool, but a horrible interface!, Mutools Mu-Labs alright for a beginner to do this by hand, but lack of plugs srieusement (For cons, beautifully pure interface)

How do you report qualitprix?

Honntement is not a question on a daw this sacrificed quality award (59) not even I understand, but good. (Can be a ruse to lure people Magix Samplitude to?)

With exprience, you do again this election? ...

Without exprience, j'hsitais srieusement, yeah, what the price I'm certainly saying is bad or beginner ... With exprience: I do not even see how we can move cluck! Of course it does!

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
Easy installation!

very easy! It tracks start your sound card and you're ready to record!

No inconpatibilité!

yes enough and clear enough

Very very very well!

no latency at nothing to report!


Few days.

yes, cubase sx3, 4.5, Nuendo 3.4.

Alternat Runner's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Magix Samplitude Music Studio 16
The installation is done it without problems?

As usual, no worries for installation. It takes about 1 / 4 h and smoothly.

The general configuration is easy?

The software takes care of everything during the first startup. A window appears with all parameters related to external devices (audio, midi, backup directories, etc.).

Have you experienced any incompatibilities?

None. In audio I use a Lexicon Alpha and twelve one MOTU MICRO EXPRESS, all on USB. No worries.

The manual is clear and sufficient?

In fact, I think the real big black dot in this series ... the manual is not enough développpé, particularly on the part noon ... why I put 8


What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)

CoreDuo 2 to 2.13 GHz / 2 GB RAM / 80 GB HD + 320 GB external. Now that's a configuration rather small but ample for this app. Besides, if you look at the system requirements to run Samplitude 11 you will see that it is not helpful to have a beast of war that turns!

The software works he correctly on this configuration?


This software + hardware is stable?


What performance? (If quantifiable)

Near-zero latency. Using the jog is no problem, just like the rewind during playback, even with numerous audio / midi.


For how long have you been using it?

It has been 5 years since I use this series as well say that I'm not about to let go ...

Did you try many other models before getting this one?

AUDACITY, Cubase SX, Protools LE, ... no picture ...

What thing do you like most/least about it?

+ Everything is there at your fingertips, recording (audio and midi sync), mixing, editing, mastering and burning.
+ Simple (but not simplistic!), Intuitive
+ Stable
+ Audio quality of treatment and after effects (mixing and mastering)
+ Quality virtual instruments provided

- The manual a bit light
- Some of the graphic icons which is a little gadget, even if the user interface is now the same as Samplitude 11

What is your opinion about the value for the price?

Improbable though it were a software product from Steinberg or Digidesign ... without laughing, such a quality for less than 60 € ...

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice?

Undoubtedly, for the price I have a complete suite for music production. I will maybe upgrade to Samplitude 11 ... I saw that if I did that since the app, I won € 100 on the price of SAM 11!

Super simple installation
No incompatibilitbr /> working on version dmo (by registering there has access to 30 days without any restrictions), I did not even need manual


IMAC dual boot OS X Leopard / Win XP PRO (Sat well on XP PRO cot)
Impeccable software, no problem encountered is good from Samplitude and not as product (I 6Studio Samplitude, Samplitude 10SE and I test Samplitude 16 MS and my soft prfr is ... Version 16)


I discovered Samplitude (pro) by chance there is of it a few years (the sellers swear by Cubase and ProTools LE ...) and owner of Sam6Studio I needed some something more rcent (ASIO Vsti) and Sampro is too expensive for me.

I test all versions of MUSIC studio, and have all abandoned with regret because they all had problems of standards ...
I adopted from the Sonar Version3 until 8 ...

And I have the experience resounds Sam / MS Version 16 this month because there is now a dmo completely open with no restrictions ... AND Lbr />
Discovery <img class="smiley" src="/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_mrgreen.gif" alt="mrgreen" />

Hyper complete, rich soft, with excellent virtual instruments, a modern interface, think back, with a superb design dsormais (Carbon), a soft as stable and reliable as Samplitude Pro ...

For 59euros ... How to say? In principle no hesitation ... but I bought Sonar8 there is little ... so I interviewed again and again ... At first when adj considr as an app major, why would you need a soft considr as a minor?

it is that yesterday I started up a test in Sonar8.31 and before leaving my home, I closed the project to reopen after a few hours, BAD SURPRISE: Tracks MIDI is still the virtual instrumentals but also no connection between the two, redo everything from scratch ... ... Ecoeur I spend the same project under SAM 16 ... I close, I open, no worries ...

Not to mention that if during the mix instrumentals Sonar seem monstrous, the listening ... uh how to say? Those Samplitude crvent literally pregnant ... Not all are good but some are standards ...

Goodbye Sonar, Samplitude I dfinitivement password and upgrade to Sam11 in order for a super price reduces

Simple and clear interface, flawless management of plugins, good virtual instruments sold with the pack, a price "ridiculously" low. My choice is made. Samplitude Music Studio 16 and Samplitude 11 without a doubt.

If I had switcher 100% I would opt for OS X Apple Studio 9, not for anything else but for PCs, the series Samplitude, including dsormais version "base", I personally have never seen better.

Magix has normment worked on his product range beginning, bringing a level I think ingalable (for this range). Therefore forget one hand the errors of previous versions, and secondly, not to confuse between price and quality. I had much more expensive apps (3X more expensive 6X) hands, this "small" Samplitude is much better ...

I highly recommend testing Sam MS 16 dmo 30 day, not to Tlcharger virtual instrumentals to test everything. It would be a mistake not to test the ...
