    Try the (unusually limited in function) demo. I'm an ex-ProTools, current Nuendo, cross-grading to Samplitude Pro (Friday, actually) person.

    I've had some very long conversations with the Magix and Synthax folks about it - It took me several months of testing and trials to switch over to Nuendo a while back, and the same with Samplitude. I don't change DAW's easily. I still have a lot of testing to do with it, but I'm pretty confident that I'll switch over to Samplitude on my "A" system in the next few months.

    They really seem to have hit the spot with this one...

    Its all I use...steep learning curve, easy to get confused as there are literally half a dozen ways to achieve the same thing...find the way that works for you.

    Version 8 is coming out soon (info at http://) but in all honesty, ver 7.22 does everything I need and more...

    I'm a militant Samplitude and Sequoia user... 8) I've been using it for years and without it I don't know how my business would fuction. Every time I go to a different program, I just get frustrated at the things I can't do with them... Part of it is just because of the way I work, but there are so many cool things that can be done at such a high quality with it. I know it is somewhat of a taboo subject, but I think Samp sounds a lot better than Pro Tools. In addition, the editing capabilities are MUCH better as well...

    Version 8 is around the corner and it seriously kicks butt... There are some really major improvements in the functionality and some major improvements "under the hood" that you don't necessarily see easily.

    great...some samplitude users...quick question...Im checking the demo out. How can I record with an RME 9652 and input monitor/playback with a creative audigy 2??
    I guess ASIO only lets u use one device at a time...cant get the others to work...

    That is part of the ASIO driver protocol. One driver at a time. You can use multiple cards if they use the same driver (ie multiple Lynx 2 and AES16 cards, multiple RME Digiface/Fireface, etc...).

    MME will allow for multiple cards (and even at independent sample rates), but the monitoring options in Samp are much more limited with MME.

    It depends... I haven't used the Audigy so I can't comment on many specifics. When recording in MME, you'll only be able to listen to what is coming in or what the sound card's mixer uses. Hence the use of ASIO- the monitoring is MUCH better.
