Samplitude Pro X is an excellent DAW for producing, mixing and finalizing audio, from arranging and recording, to editing and mixing, all the way to professional mastering and CD/DVD authoring. The interface is fully customizable so you can tailor its look and functionality to your specific needs. The precision audio engine with 64-bit support, outstanding mastering quality plugins, 5.1 Surround mixing and its ability to be seamless integrated into your studio make Samplitude Pro X one of the most powerful audio workstations on the market.
This latest iteration of Samplitude Pro X offers you the opportunity to take advantage of 64-bit applications and to use 64-bit plug-ins. Furthermore you can still use your 32-bit plug-ins. These are operated by an internal bridge and can be combined with any 64-bit plug-ins. Pretty sweet.
Samplitude Pro X works on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The main difference is in the amount of RAM available. On a 64-bit operating system a 32-bit application can use up to 4GB of RAM (twice as much as on a Microsoft Windows 32-bit OS), while a native 64-bit application is capable of using far more RAM (up to a terabyte, depending on the system components). Similarly, even demanding plug-ins or complex mixes can lead to performance increases.
New docking concept
The Docking System allows for interface adjustments, which means that the program can be optimized for your studio's specific requirements. Central components of the software can be repositioned or maximized using drag and drop. Choose to either arrange or display the analyzer, file browser, transport console, or other aspects of the interface.
The docking concept was further developed and optimized for Samplitude Pro X. So now, for example, the object editor, visualizations and MIDI editor can be docked neatly. Of course, you can create your own toolbar too. By saving your own work spaces you can use customized program interfaces for various situations so that you always have the appropriate tools to hand.
Spectral editing on track level
Remove unwanted sounds like coughing or clapping, without affecting the original signal audibly. The new spectral editing feature enables track-level spectral editing. In this way corrections can be made directly in the arrangement. Using a spectrogram, unwanted noises are quickly identified according to their color representation and removed - ideal for short, clear noises.
AAF / OMF support
Data exchange between various DAWs and exporting to various interfaces can cost lots of time. Samplitude Pro X now offers integrated OMF/AAF support to simplify data exchange between programs and platforms. Together with the EDL export for MAGIX Video Pro X and compatibility to other products from the Samplitude/Sequoia family, Samplitude Pro X can be seamlessly integrated into almost every form of digital audio editing, without slowing down the workflow.
5.1 Surround mixing
Samplitude Pro X offers several possibilities for mixing audio material 5.1 Surround. Any number of playback devices may be assigned to all of the Surround master's channels, and the audio material may be divided between the existing Surround busses.
But not only tracks, also individual objects may be routed directly to the Surround master for editing via the Surround panorama module. Furthermore, existing projects can also be mixed in the Surround format.
With help from the new tempo track you can change the playback speed of any part of a MIDI arrangement. This function gives the user the opportunity to make creative tempo changes and to adjust MIDI arrangements to existing audio material.
Additionally there are explicit modes for adjusting beat grid and MIDI arrangements to available audio material, or to tap in the beat grid. This function gives the user the opportunity to make creative tempo changes and to adjust MIDI arrangements to existing audio material.
The new essentialFX Suite is a collection of 10 first-class effect plug-ins and is suited for everyday studio applications. In addition to high-quality algorithms, great importance was placed on practical icons for the individual parameters and the effectiveness of the function. The uniform operation concept, combined with low resources demands for top quality production, makes the essentialFX suite a collection of high-quality audio tools for all-around tasks.
