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.

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

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac - 45 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac is here, and there's more than 80 new features! We've answered some user requests with this release, including:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I use the feature to make a video of the chord sheet from a Band-in-a-Box song. I use it to make backing tracks and upload them to YouTube. But these don't include any notation for the melody and lyrics of my songs. My viewers would like to see the melody and lyrics too. Is there a way you can include the melody in the video? I've tried recording this with screen capture programs, but it's time consuming, recording in real time, and the audio quality and sync are not that good.

A. Yes, Band-in-a-Box 2018 can do this now. You can save your song as a video of the notation track. So that includes the notation, guitar tab, and lyrics. And saving the whole video and audio just takes a few seconds, much faster than real time recording. Just load in your song with chords, melody, lyrics, and/or guitar tab, and press Save-As Notation Video. Your song will be up on YouTube in no time!

Q. I am songwriter and uses Band-in-a-Box to make backing tracks for my productions. I'm starting to make videos and upload them to YouTube. Can Band-in-a-Box help with my production videos?

A. Band-in-a-Box 2018 can now make videos with Video RealTracks, of the musicians performing the RealTracks. And they are playing along to your song's chord progression. You can include these videos in your own song performance, which adds a nice visual element.

Q. I use the Audio Harmonies in Band-in-a-Box. But I find the harmonies simplistic, in that they are mainly using chord tones. The Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmonies are more sophisticated, using passing tones. Why can't my Audio Harmonies work like that?

A. We've added support for new types of Audio Harmonies in the Audio Edit Window. These do allow you to choose any Band-in-a-Box MIDI harmony that has passing tones or sophisticated jazz voicings (adding 4 parts to make a 5-part jazz voicing for example). Band-in-a-Box automatically figures out the MIDI version of your melody so it uses this to create the harmonies.

Q. The new toolbar is nice, but needs more color options. Too much grey! How about skins?

A. We've added support for skins, and you can choose color or grey scale options for toolbar, mixer etc.

And more!!!

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Mac can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbmac.new.htm
