Wow, John. I just checked out the Samplitude Pro X Suite sale. Retail is over $1,300 for $149. I've read about it off and on for years and I've been looking for a high end mastering suite. I don't have time to research this, do comparisons to Ozone, T-Racks and others. To me this is an absolute no brainer and I just bought it. Here's a vid that describes everything the Suite has and holy crap, it's a lot.

BOB request

I agree Samplidtude @ $149 IS a no brainier but others beware: I'm fairly certain (just based on kvr and teh magix forum reads) that all those good sounds and plugs that come with it can NOT be used outside Samplitude without paying additional fees.

So the request Bob is could do a FAST TEST of just one sound set and one FX plug in some other DAW just to see if they will work outside Samplitude? THANKS



=============
But beyond just that one we have lots of choices

Reaper $60

Mixcraft Pro $179 (but that’s MSRP – surely a sale will pop-up AGAIN for $149 soon?) if no sale then $152.15 at JRR shop at checkout (I do like the CS80 clone add-in ME80)

Studio One 3 Pro (crossgrade) $149

Cubase 9.5 Crossgrade (sweetwater only it seems) $255 but you also need a $39 eLicenser dongle.

Tracktion Waveform (just missed sale) upgrade $150 (but from what? maybe can crossgrade as well? $150 ) if not then Waveform Ultimate at JRR shop list $200 but $180 at checkout.

FL12 Studio Producer $169.15 at JRR shop (list 199, put in cart and at checkout it’s 169.15).

and I'm sure I missed half a dozen ON sale and/or under $200 DAWs with lots of add-ins (Reaper is only bare bones one unless you consider audio Reaplugs as "lots")

I read that somewhere too but I don't care. I won't be testing anything until I finish my move. I bought a house and the truck is coming Tuesday morning so as you can imagine I'm drowning in packing boxes right now.

I happened to see this when I was taking a break and just grabbed it. I'll figure it out later but I already know it's very well regarded. Is it the best, who knows? What's the best anyway, it's all personal taste but at least this is certainly in the conversation with Waves, Ozone, Audition, T Racks and other suites. The fact that it's a DAW too is just icing for me. Looks like fun.

Bob

MATT

Just an FYI on this Samplitude sale in case you didn't read this (I have no Idea if good, bad, or huh!)

""Music notation From idea to finished score: Music notation in Samplitude Pro X3 displays MIDI data as notes in real time. When you edit the piano roll, all changes are displayed right in the score. And vice versa, edits to notes in the score are transferred to the MIDI editor. Individual notations can be selected by clicking on them, and you can also edit pitch, velocity and length in the parameters. When your composition is finished, you can easily print the data as sheet music.

Thanks Larry.

Everybody, you can save time by not sending me any more suggestions. I really appreciate it but right now I'm well into other music projects with deadlines. SONAR isn't going anywhere yet.

I have very specific needs for notation both in an out of a DAW and I'll know it when I see it. Unfortunately, there is no substitute for trying out everything and I'll get to it.

I've been a beta tester for notation software for decades and tried about everything available. I've also worked with all kinds of DAWs both in and out of the studio, recording and mixing albums. I'll be OK.

But thanks everyone!! You folks are great.

I am STILL waiting to hear any specific objections to Pro Tools. All I am hearing is "It's too hard."

Eddie, I suspect the answer to the first question is because they had to. I don't know why anyone would do it voluntarily.

As to the second question, I certainly did give you a specific objection. Yes, it's hard, but that wasn't what I said. I cited stability. In every studio I've worked in where they use it, the engineer spends time swearing at it and rebooting the system. That's a pretty good reason for me if the everyday experts have trouble. And this is on Macs, supposedly more trouble-free.

I have used PT on (8 thru 10) and off with the subscription garbage, and still have a ton of stuff in my iLok account. The reasons I don't like PT...

1. Unstable. On a machine that ANY other DAW runs fine PT freezes, hickup, and crashes. More than Sonar & Reaper for sure.

2. Too many clicks to do simple things, like creating a track....it is like an interrogation and slow compared to every other DAW I have used.

3. Locked to an iLok, the BIGGEST reason I despise PT. Pace systems us a virus that you pay for IMHO.....

I own Sonar Producer (but still use Reaper & Mixbus more), and I am sure it will run solid for years, mainly because my OS NEVER gets updated since my studio system NEVER goes online.

This is bad news for sure, I know a few folks who have had a fit, and then just settled down, cleaned their systems, grabbed all the updates, and got back to work.....

Sorry to hear you've had so many issues with it. I've been lucky and as long as I keep my iLok and Pro Tools software with the latest version updates, I've been good. My machine stays online unless I'm recording/mixing.

Not really, I own the newest Traction Waveform (because of a great deal on it!), so it has nothing to do with old & mixing boards....that is just what I have used my entire pro life..... grin

You can also hit the Traction Site and grab the Full Version 5 for free, a great way to try out the look and feel. cool

Beginners Help - Muting the Melody Notation

Visit our Beginners Forum, and you'll notice our amazing Forum Community helping out new program users!

Like this recent post regarding Muting the Melody Notation: http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=458716 - Forum user Matt Finley did a great job of answering the new program user!

Our Beginners Forum really is a great resource for new program users!

Q: When I have entered chords and notation for a song, is it possible to mute the notation and just have the chords playing? This would be helpful for when I just want the chord backing track but want to read the notation.

A: There are several ways to do this. The easiest is probably to use the Mixer window and change the volume slider to zero for the Melody track. Or, hit the Mute icon on the Mixer for the Melody Track.

Another way, with more control rather than all or nothing, is to press F5 at the measure where you want to mute, and select mute or change the volume to zero. Later, press F5 and select Return to Normal, or change the volume back.

#TechTipTuesday - Band-in-a-Box® Patch Updates

If you're ever experiencing an issue with your Band-in-a-Box program, make sure you have the most recent patch update for your version - this can be done at http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm.

Patch updates are released frequently, and are created by our development team to fix any reported bugs, tweak existing features within the program, update demos and other files as needed, and more!

To find out which version of the program you have, visit Help | About Band-in-a-Box within the program. You will see the full version number listing as:
Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2018 (512)

The number in parentheses is the build number. As you can see, my Band-in-a-Box is up to date and will continue to stay that way because I've selected "Automatically check for updates every 7 days" within the Help | Check for Updates.... option (you can set the number of days to a different number). This window will also look to see if you're version is up to date, so you don't technically have to visit http://www.pgmusic.com/support.updates.win.htm if you didn't want to!

Once you've installed your patch update (make sure the program is closed when you're doing this), give it another try - if you are still experiencing the same issue you can report it by contacting us directly, or you can post your result to the Forum thread that also announces the patch update, like our recent Band-in-a-Box 2018 Build 512 Update (Feb 15) post.
