Magix Samplitude Pro X4 - initial setup and first use

Hi gang,

I've been asked many beginners questions on Samplitude and recording in general on my Youtube channel.
I've just finished a video that covers most of the basics for someone who starts recording.
Also, I cover most of the config and features of Samplitude
Hope it will help a few.

Yes I always leave it at 6 CPU, I guess it's not my bottleneck for now...

Samplitude has a take composer tool that allows you to draw sellections that will be part of the main track. A bit different but easy to get used to.
This could be one of my next videos, I'm sure you're not the only curious one ;)
But before that I need to change the tubes in one of my LA-610...

Looking forward to the vid if you decide to do it.

Why are you changing the tubes? What brand did you decide on for replacement?

Nice. Are you using hyperthreading, so 6c/12 threads dedicated to Sam? Curious how much ram your running.

I own 2 LA-610 both made in 2001 bought used in 2012 and the one I want to change the tubes has a somewhat nazal sound compared to the other..
I read many tube comparaisons to help me guess what to buy.
I end up ordering those :
Russian Vacuum Tube Valve 6P1P (EL90 6AQ5) 9PIN NOS (2pcs) I also have some Tungsol I can try if those are too dark sounding
Electro-Harmonix 12AX7 / ECC83 Preamp Vacuum Tubes (Three Pack)
Groove Tubes GT-12AT7 GT-12AT7 Preamp Tube

My goal is to get better HF while keeping noise down.
I'll do before and after tests with null tests as well ..

I currently have 16gb of ram installed.. I should make the exercice of checking how much is used with busy projects.. ;)
