The professional complete solution for ambitious musicians and producers, whether at home, during rehearsal, or in the project studio.
Samplitude 11 Pro music software is purely native PC software and therefore independent of proprietary audio hardware. Basically, that means the software works just as well on a laptop as on an audio workstation with dozens of inputs and outputs. Simply pre-produce a song on a laptop and then complete the mixing later using a studio system. Magix Samplitude provides all of the freedom you need to choose your own system. MME, ASIO*, and WDM support all important driver models. In contrast to other digital audio workstations, Samplitude music software enables a complete in-the-box workflow, whereby all steps, from composition recording and sound creation using VST instruments to editing, mixing, and mastering the finished CD, take place within a single program.
999 tracks, complete sound neutrality, object based editing, 64 Aux busses.
5.1 Surround sound (including object Surround)
Vandal - virtual guitar & bass amplifier.
Revolver tracks may be used to replace various takes of a complete track behind defined effects, fades and track settings.
An outstanding strength of the Samplitude and Sequoia music software programs is the absolute sound neutrality featured. Highly developed digital algorithms, absolute phase stability, and continuous application of floating point calculations ensure that the sound maintains its special nuances during even the most intense digital processing. This results in transparency, neutrality, maintenance of transients, and space. Different audio formats from 16-bit to 32-bit floating point and sample rates up to 384 kHz are possible in the same arrangement.
Magix Samplitude 11 Pro also features improvements to workflow and operation suggested by users to make the music production software even more intuitive and easier to customize.
The revolver tracks system is a type of rotation that may be used to replace various takes of a complete track behind the defined effects, fades and track settings. Different compositions of the track may also be produced. Different solos and parts may be easily switched back and forth in context, or exchanged and tested against each other in their effect in the final mix, without making any other changes in the arrangement. You may choose at any time if you would like to add a revolver track as a copy (e.g. for variation of effects or fades),or if you would like to create a new, empty revolver track. The time the respective variation was added to the original track is also displayed. The revolver tracks created can be displayed at any time in the Take Composer in a a clearly laid-out manner.
Samplitude Pro offers several possibilities for mixing audio material in various multi-channel formats. All of the channels in the Surround Master may be assigned to any playback device and distributed to the existing Surround busses. But besides tracks, objects may also be routed directly to the Surround master to work via the Surround panorama module. Existing projects within the music software may also be mixed in the Surround format. The approach is quite easy to understand: Each audio track and every object may be assigned via the arranger to a specific position in the Surround panorama and then enriched with presets and effects.
MIDI Machine Control
This function is often referred to as MMC and ensures complete control of DAW's MIDI. Samplitude is able to function as MMC "Slave" or "Master": The program may be controlled remotely by external controllers or mixers with MMC support (= Slave), or an external device of your choice may be controlled by the software (track mute, track solo, play, record, etc.) (= Master), e.g. to actively control external hardware controllers. Of course, synchronization with a second sequencer is possible, e.g. to enable backup recordings. In this case, one of Magix Samplitude's functions as the master to control the second instance of the program - from a single work area.
Manager, visualization, audio quantization, icon bars, and the time display window may now be coupled/docked with different areas of the music composition project interface, or freely arranged on the screen.
Audio tracks may be colored directly via the track header. These colors are then displayed in the mixer for faster orientation within the project.
New Skins & GUI Adjustments
Magix Samplitude Pro 11 also features and improved interface with two new skins. The darker "Camo" skin and the brighter "Canis" skin are perfect for customizing the program's appearance.
Hybrid Audio Engine
The Hybrid Audio Engine includes a combination of a Low Latency and High Latency Engine. The Low Latency Engine reduces response times when calculating track effects and enables Live Monitoring at lower latencies. The integrated High Latency Engine, on the other hand, brings about more effective system utilization, which allows for the integration of sophisticated object effects, object auxiliaries & surround functions. The Hybrid Audio Engine is based on the ASIO driver system and, thanks to its low input/output delay at the same performance levels, optimizes the system especially when working with software instruments and other plug-ins. The combination of the two operating styles (with latency compensation of course) is also possible. This makes the audio production software perfectly suitable for current requirements of the production process.
As well as the classic track-related editing options, Magix Samplitude also provides object-level editing. This provides new opportunities for mixing and sound design. The audio material may be split into any number of objects and moved on the track freely. Every object can be edited with fades and effects, e.g. equalizer, timestretching, pitchshifting, or VST plug-ins. Even aux sends are possible at object level. This means that the aux send is only active for this object, making complicated automation unnecessary. The object editor offers real-time access to an object's settings.
All settings at the object level are calculated in real-time during playback; no new files are written to the hard drive. This saves space on the hard drive and allows settings to be changed again at any time. For example, you may discover that individual words from a vocal track require a pitch adjustment, so you could split each word, even every syllable into a single object. Each of these individual objects may be corrected with the real-time pitch correction function or edited in terms of volume and panorama or with fades and crossfades. Every object even features a complete range of effects and inserts for DirectX and VST plug-ins.
essentialFX provides a complete suite of new, alternative basic effects for dynamics, modulation, and other frequently used sound processes on a single screen. A lot of attention has been paid to modern design, effective display of the individual parameters, and as such to the simplicity of overall operation. This appearance of "understatement" conceals high-quality algorithms developed for daily work in the studio.
"sMax11" is a limiter/maximizer that provides must-have services for mastering tasks. Basically, the function is a hard/brick wall limiter with input amplification. Specification of input amplification allows the loudness of the audio signal to be increased easily. At the same time, the sMax11 ensures that the signal does not exceed the flexibly set output level. The control at the basis of the modification may also be configured by setting the release time and a specific mode like "Hard Clipper", "Aggressive", or "Balanced."
The "EQ116" in Magix Samplitude 11 Pro provides a 6-band equalizer that works with either oversampling or phase-linear algorithms. Filters on up to six freely selectable frequency bands may be activated to adjust the sound of the sample or of an object. This also enables broadband elevations in high and bass values as well as narrowband corrections to the frequency response to be carried out. Three different filter setups may also be selected to make settings directly during monitoring, without loading or saving complete presets.

I started out over 10 years ago using Magix Music Studio Deluxe and have stuck with it over the years, upgrading to each new version until I finally upgraded to Samplitude 11 Pro aftering opening my own commercial recording studio. This is one amazing piece of software. There's virtually nothing you can't do with your audio with it. The built-in effects are second to none. I now find myself using third-party VST's (both free and commerical) less and less. FX highlights include the superb Am-munition compressor/limiter, the AM-Suite, EssentialFX, Elastic Audio, and the incredible Vandal Guitar & Bass Amp plugin. The virtual Mixer is also the best I've used. Other killer features include Audio Quantize, Revolver Tracks, Take Composer, But the feature that really sets Samplitude apart from the rest is its so-called "Object-based" editing. In Samplitude, each clip of audio or MIDI is represented as a graphical "object" on a track. By double-clicking on an object, you have access to all of the same controls that you also have at the Track level (Pan, Pitch, EQ, Effects, VST Plugins, Volume--you name it). This allows for incredibly detailed control over your audio, and allows you to apply a certain effect (Pan, VST plugin, etc.) to only a particular portion/object of a specific track. You can also split existing objects into multiple objects, as well as glue multiple objects into one. Magix is a German company, so Samplitude isn't as well-known here in the States, but it's got a cult following that seems to be growing daily.

This software is expensive, but for all that it offers, it's well worth it. It's also worth checking to see if you're eligible for a crossgrade from another product, which can save you some money.
