For even more flexible routing during mixing, Samplitude Pro X2 lets you easily add or remove additional outputs – you can also assign no outputs to a track. Moreover, you can also view and select multiple outputs directly in the routing manager. Different tap points downstream of the volume control (post), upstream of the volume control (pre) or directly after the gain (direct out) make it easier to mix complex music productions.
More production control: Order the application of effects & plug-ins exactly how you want. The sequence can now even be edited for tracks as well as all objects in the arrangement. This goes for the effects sequence during Surround editing as well. In this case, the plug-ins in the individual channels are always calculated before the Surround effects. Most effects can now be applied multiple times to a track or an object.
The concept of the VCA fader in Samplitude Pro X2 ensures usability and comfort based on large analog mixing consoles and is natively integrated in the DAW. This fader lets you precisely control all relevant levels when mixing your projects. Here, each existing channel strip can be easily turned into a VCA fader.
You can also assign individual channels to a VCA group and control them using the VCA fader in the mixer. You can assign as many channel strips as you want to a VCA master fader. By displaying "Ghost faders", the resulting change can also be read out in the individual channels depending on the VCA master.
Tracks can be converted into so-called "economy tracks" at any time. These tracks and their effects will not be used for input monitoring, thus easing the load on your system. If you mute an economy track, it will not consume performance resources to calculate effects.
You can use Revolver Tracks to easily create variations of a track, e.g. different edits, to have on-hand during mixing. Revolver Tracks are saved without track effects, automations and track settings. This way you can switch between different solos in a song when mixing, without making changes to the rest of the arrangement.
You can save Revolver Tracks as copies to create variations on an existing take – or save them as empty tracks to import new recordings or new objects. You can switch between available Revolver Tracks by using keyboard shortcuts, and you can display them at any time in the Take Composer.
Touch, latch, trim or overwrite: All plug-in and track parameters can be optionally automated. The curves themselves may be drawn in detail and conveniently defined via handle points.
Working with track and plug-in automations is now even easier. When you delete a selected object, the corresponding automation data is saved and moved. You can also right click on curve points to edit them or transfer track automations to objects. To make sure everything stays clearly laid-out and easy to use, you can select between the track and object automation display directly in the track editor beside the track at any time.
The special feature of object automation is that effects and their automation are connected directly with the object. This allows you to move or split the objects and their automations however you like.
This virtual guitar & bass amplifier includes 24 stomp boxes, 70 different presets and three different microphone arrangements. Every component of the amplifier, from the tube to the speaker coils, is virtualized right down to the last detail. Physical modeling technology guarantees great sound without compromise.
The intuitive program interface is based on how professional guitarists and bassists work with hardware and lets you get started right away.
The essentialFX Suite is a high-quality collection of 11 professional effects plug-ins for modulation and dynamic effects. This collection contains both standard effects, such as flanger, tremolo and chorus, as well as special plug-ins for optimizing speech and vocal recordings, and an excellent compressor.
The Vintage Effects Suite contains the Corvex, Ecox & Filtox plug-ins. They are based on the same control principle – but they couldn't be more different from each other in terms of sound design. Filtox is a real-time FFT filter and controls the frequency response of a modulation source. This allows you to edit and distort synthesizer sounds and drum loops as well as create effects like the wah-wah effect.
Ecox can realistically emulate echoes from analog tape devices, which are caused by tracking fluctuations. The Corvex plug-in, on the other hand, modulates realistic-sounding chorus and flanger effects from the early days of analog effects units.
Samplitude Pro X2 offers a track-level frequency-based cleaning tool in the form of spectral editing. Remove unwanted sounds, like coughing or clapping, without affecting the original signal audibly. Using a spectrogram, noises are quickly identified according to their color representation and removed. Additional cleaning effects include DeHisser, DeClipper and DeNoiser, all of which work in real time.
Analogue Modelling Suite Plus includes four high-quality effects plug-ins that model analog audio tools, which simply can't be left out of any professional mastering process.
This includes a high-quality analog compressor (am-track) with optional simulation of studio tape machine saturation effects, a transient designer (am-pulse) for influencing the signal envelope of percussive audio material, a tube pre-amp/channel strip (am-phibia), plus a mastering dynamics tool (am|munition) with compressor, limiter, clipper and M/S editing.
