  1. Split object at each bar (or beat)

    I reached the same conclusion, so I assigned a hotkey to "split object" and repeated the hotkey sequence: Arrow-right, split, arrow-right, split ... It worked. But considering how Samplitude generally has a bazillion features, I still have a feeling that maybe there is a feature like this hiding in there somewhere.
  2. I have a fairly long .wav file object that I want to cut at each bar so that it becomes many separate objects of the same length. I could probably do this manually by enabling snap-to-grid and then cut using the mouse. But I wonder if there's an automatic way to do this?

    I am quite curious about this too, but the link is now pointing to something that's not there anymore.
  4. Keeping a VST wrapper around for the upcoming 32-bit apocalypse is actually really good advice.
  5. First Logic, now Cubase... it seems more and more DAWs are actively removing support for 32 bit plugins. This seems fantastically odd to me, considering how the vast majority of my current plugin selection consists of 32 bit VST plugins. Many of them are abandonware, and there will never be a 64-bit version. In fact, I think Samplitude could out-compete the other DAWs in this regard simply by doing nothing. (Thus keeping 32-bit VST support.) It's a silly world! PS: Of course, I really hope Samplitude won't follow this frustrating trend.
  6. They are not "necessary". If you remove them, they will be rebuilt automatically the next time you load the .VIP file. They don't need to be in the same folder. Samplitude just needs to be able to map a .wav file to the corresponding .HDP and .H2 files, whereever these are configured to be stored. Just like RawTherapee does. Imagine people also using different kinds of software (Acid, Soundforge, whatever) that also leaves similar files next to your .wav files. It could become quite a mess. Also, whenever I've made a folder full of .wav files ready to be exported to someone else who is not using Samplitude, I have to clean up the mess, because I don't want to deliver a folder full of "gunk". This looks unprofessional and can even cause confusion.
  7. This has nagged me too. Samplitude feels a bit spammy the way it spreads those .H2 and .HDP files all over your file system. Some sort of option to store them in separate folder would be absolutely lovely. The photo software RawTherapee already does a similar thing with photos: It has a "cache folder". I don't know how it keeps track of mapping the path to the external file to the file(s) in its own cache, but they seem to have solved that problem somehow. In fact, Samplitude could just use the system temp folder (see the %TEMP% environment variable). This would be optimal, as people might have already set up a clean-up mechanism to get rid of old obsolete files in their Temp folder using a scheduled task.
  8. This channel lacks something very obvious: A good reason to record something at a very high sample rate is that you want to play it back in slowmotion for special sound effects reasons. Example: Sometimes when I do a techno track, I might want a hihat to be lower and more gnarly. By playing it at half speed, I get that. Butif the sample was recorded at only 48 khz, and I play it back at just 24 khz, the treble will go up to 12 kHz max, and a lot of people will be able to tell that it lacks overtones. By recording at 96 khz or even 192 khz, you can play back stuff at half speed and still have good sound quality. Try it - it's really fun!
  9. Having fun with Vita Jazz Drums

    The pipe sounds this way because I recorded it at 96 khz and play it back at 32 khz.
  10. I was testing the "Vita Jazz Drums" plugin that apparently comes with Samplitude, and I ended up with this madness. Enjoy! This is the "saxophone" that you hear in this track. boheme_cigars.mp3
