MIDI in Samplitude

MIDI Velocity Dynamics

“Velocity Dynamics” is a real-time effect for MIDI data which allows you to edit the attack dynamics of the MIDI notes.

Adjust the MIDI velocity to the connected synthesizer by compressing or expanding the velocity strength of the selected event.

MIDI editor

The MIDI editor integrates different editors, views, ranges, and tools.

The MIDI parameter editing tool is another new feature: 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 idea to finished score: Music notation in Samplitude Pro X4 displays MIDI data as notes in real time.

Your edits are transferred directly to the MIDI editor. Individual notations can be edited in the parameters pitch, velocity and length. When you’re finished, you can publish the data as sheet music. Support for lyrics is a new feature. If you import a MIDI file with lyric markers, the text is displayed in the score.

Drum editor

The Drum Editor is an alternative version of the piano roll, specifically for programming drum parts.

Transfer note settings to other channel strips and quantize individual elements or assign them a new (MIDI) output channel. The editor can be displayed in Matrix mode with conventional parameters or in cell mode. Cell mode allows you to adjust the width of notes and define a view quantize grid per instrument.


Intuitive mixing, flexible routing and new automation functions for complex recording tasks – on up to 999 tracks. Ideal for larger arrangements.

NEW! Automation lanes

Track automation in Samplitude Pro X4 can now be displayed across several sub-tracks, known as “lanes”.

This collection contains both standard effects, such as flanger, tremolo and chorus, as well as special plug-ins for optimizing speech and vocal recordings, and an excellent compressor.

Vintage Effects Suite

The Vintage Effects Suite contains the Corvex, Ecox & Filtox plug-ins. Each of these plug-ins is based on the same control principle – but they couldn’t be more different from each other in terms of sound design. Filtox is an Oberheim filter and controls the frequency response of a modulation source. This allows you to create effects like the wah-wah effect. Ecox realistically emulates echoes from analog tape devices, which are caused by tracking fluctuations. The Corvex plug-in modulates realistic-sounding chorus and flanger effects.

Cleaning effects

Exclusive in Samplitude Pro X4 Suite: Samplitude Pro X4 Suite includes a track-level frequency-based cleaning tool in the form of spectral editing. Remove unwanted sounds, like coughing or clapping, without affecting the original signal audibly. Using a spectrogram, noises are quickly identified according to their color representation and removed. Additional cleaning effects include DeHisser, DeClipper and DeNoiser.


The effects featured in Samplitude Pro X4 are high-quality, reliable and impressive tools that are ideal for the mastering process. These effects have been specially designed and optimized for mastering tasks. All the effects can be used in objects, in tracks and in the master channel.


Samplitude Pro X4 includes a variety of precision meters and analyzers for optimal support during production and the mastering process. Select visualizations such as bit meter, tuner spectrogram or mono compatibility tool and set up your own private “cockpit” to more deeply examine frequencies or the stereo and Surround distribution. You can choose between different visualizations layouts and save them for later use.

EQ and multiband stereo enhancer

The 6-band EQ works with oversampling or phase linear modes and can be used seamlessly in mixing as well as in mastering. Produce sound that’s crystal-clear and acoustically stable in the mix, without any phase problems – all thanks to phase linearity. The multiband stereo enhancer allows users to precisely modify the stereo image during mastering for an individual frequency range or for the entire mix. Accurate stereo localization is also possible using this tool.

sMax11 brickwall limiter

Take your mix to the limit.

Select how aggressive limiting should be with a variety of modes. Use gain in, out and release faders to adjust parameters for your track’s genre in order to achieve optimal results.

Exclusive in Samplitude Pro X4 Suite: Inter-sample peaks are now taken into account during the limiting of the signal.

Mastering & authoring

With Samplitude Pro X4, create masters according to the Red Book standard and burn them directly from the arrangement into all formats – uncompressed (linear PCM) or in compressed formats and on all forms of blank disc.

Exclusive in Samplitude Pro X4 Suite: In addition to physical mastering, you can create a bit-precise digital DDP master for transferring your master to the pressing plant.

MP3/AAC audition plug-in

Exclusive in Samplitude Pro X4 Suite: The preview plug-in enables you to hear the results before export.

You can use this to check for compression artifacts or loss of highs and adjust parameters to fix them. The encoder plug-in enable you to fulfil all requirements for export, for instance “Mastered for iTunes” requirements.
