This full fledged DAW is the best kept secret of the music industry. It's very suited for general multi-track recording, mixing and mastering work, as well as for adding sound effects to movies, animations and cut-scenes in games. In fact, I used it as a games sound engineer, and I've been swearing to it ever since. Here are som things I feel like hilighting:

  • Very optimized, uses little CPU and RAM compared to other DAWs I've tried.
  • Sound quality: What comes in, goes out. There's no degradation, hidden limiters or anything. It's a professional tool.
  • Reliability is good: It's really as stable as anything running in Windows could possibly be.
  • Supports both 32 and 64-bit VST plugins, and the support is good and stable.
  • The feature set is endless. It may look simple, but there's far more than what meets the eye at first.
  • Sync to video files which can be displayed on an external monitor. (This also performs super fast if the video file has many i-frames.).
  • The object editor. Something I take as granted these days is apparently entirely missing in most other DAWs. How do people survive without it?

The default settings are a bit odd though. You really should change the default keyboard layout, or you will probably go crazy and would never get to like the program. I'd also change a setting that makes it record to a new .wav file every time you press Record, instead of one big file. But once these little hurdles are out of the way, this thing is the bomb.

Spread the word.

I'd like to see a list of new features that users would like to see in future Samplitude ProX2.

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.

Magix has it's own forum for Samplitude and Sequoia.


Overall very helpful, friendly group of users.

I too can't understand why Samplitude isn't more popular in the US. No Groove 3 or other pro tutorials???

Check out my video comparing samplitude Pro x 3 with Studio One 3. Very light comparison but informative esp if you are a newbie to any of the DAWS.
