I figured it out on my own. Everything works perfectly. THanks anyway!

I’m demoing Magix Samplitude Pro 3 DAW. I think I chose the correct settings to get my Behringer X-Touch to work using the Mackie Control preset. It shows no sign of life. I know everything works in other programs. I assume there must be some checkbox somewhere that I missed.

No support is available until Monday. Forum and YouTube searches have not worked. The Samplitude manual and Help don’t help.

Thanks if you have the solution.

Just now learning basics of this one and those of a few others like you are as well as a bunch of new complex plugs - HALion6, Independence, AKAI VIP - that thing has lots of promise)

I don't have a B. X-touch (only thing I use, when it works is a Korg NanoKontrol and/or Nanopad) but the apparent guru of Samlitude (forumite name Kraznet, his posts remind me of MAC and YOU combined re: BIAB) looks like he has it figured it out - he was trying to make video back in AUGUST!

https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/advice-needed-for-filming-behringer-x-touch--108424/

so if anyone knows he probably does, so might have to be patient after querying the site and him (grasshopper)

GOOD LUCK

Larry, thank you! I did figure it out. It was my error on the dialog box setting it up. I'm all set.

To replace SONAR, I tried many DAWs over the past month and bought Mixcraft. Although I like it, it would not display MIDI well enough for me, so I am now trying Samplitude. So far, it looks very good, and the price for the crossgrade (until tomorrow) is terrific.

Glad you got it going but just an FYI (and for other Samplitude noobs as well):

Have you loaded a possibly better clone by looking in the

When you open the File -> Program Preferences -> System\Audio -> Hardware Controller -> Addnew? That in-turn opens up a list of factory presets

These control panel (.CPSXML’s) (presets)appear to be maintained in the

Your drive letter and path to…

….\MAGIX\templates&FX\Controlpanels\SamControlpanelB2\FactoryPresets

Loading a Preset in that tab obviously populates the other tabs in the “Hardware Controller” page.


Your question got me playing with it. And I stumbled onto the above directory which has a factory preset for a Korg NanoKcontrol as well as a version of my Alesis VX49 – the Alesis V49) from those presets I should be able to figure out how to add a NanoPad to stuff as well as assign knobs/sliders from larger keyboards (Fusion, Montage…)

this info might help others tweak an existing preset to work better with their particular surfaces

Good Luck
Larry

EDIT UPDATE

for KORG Users go to this video then he he ha a link showing what to set to set (or check) on your Korg Kontrol using the Korg editor

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFSPbwM1IH8

these settigns I THINK are meant to be used with HIS version of the .cpsxml on same google drive page - not tried it yet myself yet however

Thanks again. I had to call the Behringer X-Touch a Logic Control for Mixcraft, but Mackie Control worked fine for Samplitude. I will look at those other choices you gave, though, Appreciate it!

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.
