This has been a terrible first year for me using Samplitude Pro X3. I have had nothing but quirky issues and am jumping ship. My problem is that I still have about 5 projects that need to be completed. Of course, the quirkiness of Samplitude refuse to allow me to do that.
In one project, I am using a couple of the VITA vsti drums. All was fine last time I opened the project. Today, there is no sound from my Vita Pop Drum Funky Hi Hat. All the midii data is there. Just no sound. MIxer volume all the way up has no effect. If I right click and change to any other drum, there it is, albeit the wrong sound. If I switch back to the original hi hat, still there. If I click out of the Vita interface, sound disappears. This goes on for a while. Now when I do the same steps, there is no sound. I can see the vita drums being played in it's interface, however, there is not mixer volume and no green sound level action. I have another track using the same drum except I am using Toms and it plays fine. This kind of stuff drives me batty and is the reason I have switched back to Cakewalk, where I experience no issues at all. What can be causing this? Nothing s muted. All settings are correct which is why I do hear sound when I change to a different drum. Either Samplitude or Vita plugins are the issue.
Second question, everyone in the Cakewalk forum asks me why I do not simply save the entire project as a mid file and open in Samplitude. Well, if I knew how, I would but the only option I see to save my project as is a VIP.I just got to get these few projects out without re-recording everything and I can be done with Samplitude for good. Thank you.
