I've just gotten the demo for this and I have started learning it and seriously looking into switching to it (from Ableton and Reaper - I also still use Harrison Mixbus). I have no idea why this tool is not more popular - there is not even a magix or samplitude forum on KVR. It's really odd. This product has 20 years of pedigree and is the not so cut-down baby brother of it's 2,500 euro (not including VAT) sibling, Sequoia. The audio engine on Samplitude Pro X sounds amazing. They make a fuss about it being 'neutral' and I can see why. I am hearing things on my recordings that I never detected whilst using the other tools. The engineer for Depeche Mode just used Sequoia to record their last 100 live concerts and is totally wrapped with it's reliability - but this tool scarecely shows up on the radar. Very odd. I'm gonna put some serious effort into learning this tool. It would have been nice to have other users to share experiences with except no one seems to use it. Very odd.
