Samplitude works using full bit transparency for absolute sound neutrality. The consistent use of floating point calculations ensures that your sound retains its character, even after extensive digital processing. The result – transparency, neutrality, retention of transients and spatiality.
Sophisticated recording - Samplitude Pro X6 stands for the highest level of audio quality and stability, even in complex recording sessions. With a total of 999 tracks and up to 256 physical inputs and outputs, working on large projects is no problem at all. Use common audio formats from 16-bit to 32-bit floating point as well as sample rates up to 384 kHz.
Take Composer - The Take Composer clearly displays all the recordings of a passage. This feature offers a specially optimized cutting tool to combine the takes in the context of the arrangement to get a perfect end result.
Editing is one of the core competencies in Samplitude. With time-saving workflows, flexible docking options and ultra-precise tools, users can work in a production environment that’s perfectly customized to their needs so they can concentrate fully on projects.
Edit objects in the arranger - In addition to standard options for track-related editing, Samplitude also features object-based editing options. Set fades with customized curves, decrease or increase volume using the mouse, and trim or stretch sections. For detailed editing options, you can double-click to open the object editor to discover even more possibilities for modifying your sound.
Object Editor - Focus on the object level and integrate individual clips in the mix. This way, you don’t need to create new tracks for short sections that are in projects with complex arrangements and longer duration. Apply effects or route objects to AUX and Surround buses. From fades to effect and pitch editing, all edits you make are non-destructive and are calculated during playback – so there’s plenty of room for experimentation.
ARA2 support - Edit projects on a whole new level of musicality. ARA supports integration of Celemony Melodyne and others and enables the direct transfer of tempo and pitch values as well as volume and intonation. The new ARA2 lets you work faster and more efficiently in realtime, for simultaneous editing of multiple tracks and clean transitions between clips without crossfades.
Celemony Melodyne essential - Melodyne essential allows for pitch correction at the top level of quality. Specialized algorithms enable you to manipulate acoustic character, timing, duration and pitch for individual notes within your recordings.
Automation Shapes - Set curve types to simplify your workflow further. Use Automation Shapes to build gradual transitions between two points in an automation. Are there still issues with the audio? Not any more with Samplitude.
zplane algorithm - Use the latest zplane algorithm, élastique Pro v3, for time stretching and pitch shifting. This algorithm uses the latest findings from signal processing theory and combines these with psycho-acoustic models. Higher, wider or faster – great sound is always the result.
Copy & paste content across projects - Easily copy tracks, even across projects. Switch between tabs for open projects and start copying content. Simply use the checklist to choose which settings you want to transfer – for instance VST plug-ins, AUX busses, or submix busses. This makes your arranging and editing workflow much more streamlined.
Custom modifications - You can customize the interface in Samplitude to suit your own workflow. For instance, VST instruments can now be renamed to simplify your workflow, regardless of manufacturer specifications. You can now also select multiple tracks at once and adjust their height simultaneously.
Discover a source of creative inspiration that never runs dry – with practical aids for composition, plus a huge range of tools for creating and modulating sound.

MIDI in Samplitude - A combination of extensive MIDI functionality and smooth workflows enables you to bring musical ideas to life on a professional level.
MIDI Polyphonic Expression - Add expression: MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE for short) transmits only a single note per channel, but with all parameters. This way, compatible controllers such as the ROLI Seaboard can output at their full potential. Want to create a more rhythmic solo, or lower harmonies with sustain? MPE makes it easy.
Advanced MIDI controller editing - Transfer the extremely detailed modulation curves from your best takes to other controller lanes. Select the desired sections, e.g., for volume, and paste them onto any sub-tracks you want. Enjoy more creative freedom for highly expressive compositions.
MIDI editor - The MIDI editor integrates various applications, views, ranges, and tools. The MIDI parameter editing tool can be accessed here at all times: Selected events (e.g. velocity or pitch bend) can be moved, stretched or compressed and scaled in relation to each other in various ways. MIDI quantization is also possible without any additional steps.
Music notation - From initial idea to finished score: Music notation in Samplitude Pro X5 displays MIDI data as notes in realtime. Your edits are transferred directly to the MIDI editor. Notations can be edited using the parameters pitch, velocity and length. When you’re finished, you can publish the data as sheet music. If you import a MIDI file with lyric markers, the text is displayed in the score.
Drum Editor - This alternative to the classic piano roll view has been specially designed for programming drums. Transfer note settings to other channel strips and quantize individual elements or assign them a new output channel if necessary. The editor can be displayed in Matrix mode with conventional parameters or in cell mode. This way, quantization for note length and snapping to grid can be implemented more easily.

Buttons above act as helpful markers for beat and tempo change.
NEW! Render flexibility with track output recording - When you record the output of the track, you record what you hear and not what is being feed into the track. Samplitude saves your project material in a clean state, giving you full control to render your project material flexibly and experiment with effects afterwards.
NEW! Search & find your presets in the Plug-in browser - With the Plug-in browser extension, you can now access plug-in presets directly and quickly. Mark your favorites for quick access and take advantage of the keywords and filters. Rediscover the potential of your entire plug-in collection!
