MAGIX Samplitude V11.0.1.0 with Addon iSO

MAGIX Samplitude V11.0.1.0 with Addon iSO
MAGIX Samplitude V11.0.1.0 with Addon iSO | 4.87GB

Samplitude is purely native PC software and therefore independent of proprietary audio hardware. Basically, that means the program works just as well on a laptop as on an audio workstation with dozens of inputs and outputs. Even the standard version offers you everything you need for your productions: Up to 128 tracks and 64 busses at a sample rate of up to 384 kHz. Samplitude provides all of the freedom you need to choose your own system. MME, ASIO*, and WDM support all important driver models.
Workflow improvements
The new version 11 also features improvements to workflow and operation suggested by users to make Samplitude even more intuitive and easier to customize.
Manager, visualization, audio quantization, icon bars, and the time display window may now be coupled/docked with different areas of the project interface, or freely arranged on the screen.
Track colors
Tracks may be colored directly via the track header. These colors are then displayed in the mixer for faster orientation within the project .
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 software perfectly suitable for current requirements of the production process.
Object-oriented editing
As well as the classic track-related editing options, 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 new 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 Samplitude 11 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.
New VST instruments

Review by Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide
During his short, prolific, and equally tempestuous career, bassist Oscar Pettiford made potent modern jazz that stands the test of time, and is equal to or as brilliant as any you can name. These reissues, mainly from Bethlehem label recordings, showcase large ensembles and are a prelude to the orchestra Pettiford would lead before his untimely death in a European bicycle accident in 1960. There is an octet and a nonet from the Bethlehem dates, quite different and very strong. With trumpeters Clark Terry and Joe Wilder, trombonist Jimmy Cleveland, alto saxophonist Dave Schildkraut, clarinetist Jimmy Hamilton, and baritone saxophonist Danny Bank, Pettiford is able to use these members of Duke Ellington's orchestra in a manner much like Duke. There's a jam for Hamilton on Ellington's "Jack the Bear," Pettiford's reverent Jewish-sounding theme "Tamalpais," Terry's hard bopper "Chuckles" with Bank taking the lead, a typical "Mood Indigo" with Pettiford's walking bass up front in the mix, and a darker, moodier "Time on My Hands." The effortlessness of the ensemble is easy to hear, but does not really tell what Pettiford and his big band would do in the not-too-distant future. The next nine tracks, with considerable help from alto saxophonist and arranger Gigi Gryce, give definitive foreshadowing as to the charts that set Pettiford's music in an advanced stance. With trumpeters Donald Byrd and Ernie Royal, trombonist Bob Brookmeyer, multi-instrumentalist Jerome Richardson, and Gryce, a higher bar is set from a harmonic standpoint. "Titoro" is an outstanding merging of post-bop, Latin spice, and emerging progressive modernism, topped off by a scintillating solo from pianist Don Abney. The trend continues on the predatory ambush sounds of "Scorpio," the wild bird flute of Richardson on "Oscalypso," the bluesy "Don't Squawk" (a change of pace and a feature for Richardson again on flute), the happy chart "Kamman's A-Coming," Pettiford's cello feature "Another Seventh Heaven," and the famous bass-led "Bohemia After Dark." All are stellar examples of things to come in the late '50s. There are six quintet tracks with just French horn icon Julius Watkins and tenor saxophonist Charlie Rouse in the front line, ranging from the galloping bop of Gerry Mulligan's "Sextette" to the well-known tuneful melody "Tricotism" with horns comping over Pettiford's lead bassline, and the solid bop of "Cable Car" and "Rides Again," both tunes that should be standards. The CD kicks off with two tracks originally on the Swing label out of France, featuring pianist Henri Renaud and a sextet with Max Roach on drums, guitarist Tal Farlow, tenor saxophonist Al Cohn, and trombonist Kai Winding. These two tunes are from a session documented on the previous Classics Pettiford reissue, 1951-1954: another happy Mulligan bopper ("E Lag") and the Charlie Parker-like "Rhumblues" (similar to "My Little Suede Shoes"). 1954-1955 is a must-have for mainstream jazz fans, and a fully representative document of what Pettiford was capable of as a player and leader.

Review by arwulf arwulf, All Music Guide
Bebop thrived on both sides of the Atlantic during the late '40s. While some Americans treated bop as nothing more than affected "hep talk" and a way of dressing up funny, there were profound artistic innovations at the heart of this new music. Kenny Clarke helped to establish bop in Europe, and the recordings he made in Paris document a wonderful flowering of early modern jazz that would have a decisive impact on the next half century of musical evolution worldwide. Trumpeter Howard McGhee was the prime focus of a session that came at the end of a full season of recording activity during the spring of 1948. This was quite an octet in that John Lewis was the pianist, Hubert Fol and Jimmy Heath played alto saxophones, and Jesse Powell -- featured on "I'm in the Mood for Love" -- played tenor sax. Anyone who's fond of bassist Percy Heath should hear him carrying the melodic line on "Out of Nowhere." Six sides waxed for the small-time Century label in New York on January 25, 1949, resound with Milt Jackson's vibraphone -- he also doubled on piano -- and Kenny Dorham's fine trumpeting combined with the unusual tonalities of a French horn played by Julius Watkins. Furthermore, Joe Harris expanded Clarke's percussion section by handling congas and timbale. The results are something like chamber bop, dignified and progressive. "You Go to My Head" features the vibes -- Jackson makes the ballad feel like a blues -- and "Roll 'Em Bags" sounds something like "Billie's Bounce." Back in Paris, Clarke's next recording date involved Hubert Fol and a facile trombonist by the name of Nat Peck. "Iambic Pentameter," a wild feature for the drums, closely resembles "Epistrophy," while famously opinionated jazz critic Hugo Panassie's name is sent up in an adventurous bop study called "Assy Pan Assy." On March 3, 1950, Clarke participated in a remarkable session with the brothers Hubert and Raymond Fol and bassist Pierre Michelot. Their version of "Out of Nowhere" is a gem. The first version of "These Foolish Things" is so bopped up it's hard to recognize. Version number two, a feature for the bassist, is similarly veiled through harmonic reconstruction. "Those Fol-ish Things" at last reveals the melody, played on alto by Hubert Fol. These variations survive as a pleasant example of the quirkiness of the boppers. The CD closes with two excellent tracks from the spring of 1950, with Gerald Wiggins, Nat Peck, and world-class saxophonist James Moody joining the pack.

Review by arwulf arwulf, All Music Guide
Whatever happened to Orlando Roberson? He recorded with Fats Waller & His Buddies in December of 1929 and with Claude Hopkins in 1933 and 1934, then resurfaced in March 1937 crooning away in practically the same voice in front of a band led by Edgar Hayes -- but billed this one time as Orlando Roberson & His Orchestra. Many jazz fans would cringe at these two sentimental pop songs, but aside from serving as a fascinating circumstantial footnote to the Fats Waller story they form the first steps in the chronological recordings of Waller's exact contemporary, Edgar Hayes (1904-1979). The real springboard for this story is "Manhattan Jam," recorded at the same session as Roberson's sleepy confections. This lively stomp has a melody similar to Cab Calloway's notorious 1932 hit, "Reefer Man." Trombonist Robert Horton sounds a bit like Joe "Tricky Sam" Nanton -- next to him stands the great Clyde Bernhardt -- and that's young Kenny "Klook" Clarke knocking the stuffing out of his drums. This in fact was where Clarke's recording career began. The arrangements are wonderful, particularly Hayes' version of Ellington and Tizol's "Caravan." Each instrumental is a delight to behold. "Edgar Steps Out" has an irresistible rhythm that may very well result in toe-tapping or improvised dancing. During "Laughing at Life," the band sings back at Ralph Sawyer in a stylized routine known to have been developed by Steve Washington and stolen by Tommy Dorsey. "Stompin' at the Renny" was composed by tenor saxophonist Joe Garland, who during his solo uses a riff that would later surface as the theme of Lionel Hampton's smash hit "Flyin' Home." A second version of "Laughing at Life" has a considerably cooler vocal by trumpeter Bernie Flood. "Satan Takes a Holiday" contains a couple of lively vibraphone solos by Kenny Clarke. He sticks with the vibes on the following session, a quintet date with vocals by Bill Darnell. Present in this little band was clarinetist Rudy Powell, famous for his earlier recordings with Thomas "Fats" Waller. Fortunately, Darnell sings tolerably well, allowing the listener to stick with this band long enough to marvel at Clarke's vibraphone work and the sympathetic intonations of Powell's clarinet. Hayes himself was a capable pianist, with a surefooted swing style comparable to that of Count Basie. "Queen Isabella" is a solid instrumental, a valuable commodity nestled among no less than nine vocals by the ubiquitous Darnell. Somebody, presumably the dexterous Robert Horton, manages to emit "ya-ya" syllables from his trombone during "Old King Cole," making the Joe Nanton comparison even more accurate. Clarke trundles out the vibraphone from time to time, and Darnell won't stop singing. On January 14, 1938, the Edgar Hayes band made history by recording without any vocals by Bill Darnell. The band swings marvelously on the instrumental Joe Garland composition appropriately entitled "Meet the Band." What makes these 1938 sides work so well is the arranging -- and baritone sax work -- of Garland. "Fugitive from a Harem" and "Swingin' in the Promised Land" are big-band swing records suitable for jitterbugging and cutting the rug.

Review by Scott Yanow, All Music Guide
For this Classics CD, most of the Jimmie Lunceford Orchestra's earlier Vocalion recordings (owned by Columbia) are reissued. The loss of Sy Oliver in August 1939 (he was lured away by Tommy Dorsey) would soon hurt the band but they were still using Oliver's arrangemetns in the last session. "Baby, Won't You Please Come Home," "What Is This Thing Called Swing," a classic rendition of "Ain't She Sweet," "Well, All Right Then" and "Belgium Stomp" are among the more memorable selections on this CD which also has a few typically inferior Dan Grissom ballad vocals. Swing fans will want all of these CDs even if they do not include Lunceford's alternate takes.

Review by Cub Koda, All Music Guide
A nice collection of Price's 1942-1945 recordings that spotlights this highly undervalued boogie pianist. Kicking off with four sides backing Mabel Robinson, the set also includes ten sides that Price's small groups cut for the Decca label, as well as ten piano solos recorded in New York but originally issued in France. A stray duo track with drummer Big Sid Catlett rounds out the collection. A hidden treasure.

Stan Getz (ts, bars)
Gerry Mulligan (bars, ts)
Lou Levy (p)
Ray Brown (b)
Stan Levey (d)
Los Angeles, CA, October 12, 1957

"Jazz is our delight brother cats. Life is so boring sometimes that you and I, my jazz friends, deserve to take a pause and enjoy the marvel of music to lift us up. You can't find a more delightful listening experience than this encounter between Getz and Jeru. It is fantastic believe me. This record is something that when I turn back to it, it makes me discover again why I love jazz. It has been one of the first jazz albums I did buy, something like 15 years ago ... it's still refreshing after all these years. It is light, funny, swinging, splendid ... it is simply one of the best examples of Jazz you can find out there. Jazz the fifties way of course, not that thing that today some people call jazz that is unbelievably boring. This is Jazz. And you can't stop to stomp your feet. You have a fantastic rhythm section, Stan Levey and Ray Brown, boy oh boy, so the swingin' guaranteed . Lou Levey played the piano (one of the best in the west coast movement). Than you have a couple of the best soloists that EVER graced the history of Jazz music, Stan Getz and Gerry Mulligan (The man who plays the bars, nothing more to add here). The program begins with the splendid "Let's fall in love" and it's all there. They're all swingers except for the wonderful tune "A ballad" which is, of course, a ballad. You even have a Charlie Parker number, Scrapple. The joy of swing, a music that these guys plays perfectly, light as butterflies, deep as oceans. THEY'RE TRUE MASTER!!! Every tune is a master interpretations. Than Stan and Jeru change horns and demonstrate to us (if necessary) how good they could play with another type of instrument. It is simply a perfect album, jazz-cats, if you don't own it... YOU SHOULD. YOU SHOULD. "
"Stan & Gerry play beautifully on this recording. Their energy is infectious, their sound is full, and their ideas are spontaneous and creative. On almost all the cuts you'll hear Stan & Gerry improvising on the same chorus. They do it so well you almost don't realize it's happening unless you really listen. This kind of playing is impossible without the big ears both these guys had. The rhythm section is great as well, but the horns are what stand out in my memory."

Al Cohn - Zoot Sims Quintet You 'N' Me 1960

02) You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To
03) You 'N' Me
04) On The Alamo
05) The Opener
06) Angel Eyes
07) Awful Lonely
08) Love For Sale
09) Improvisation For Unaccompanied Saxophones

Al Cohn (Clarinet (Sax Tenor)
Zoot Sims (Clarinet (Sax Tenor)
Osie Johnson (Drums)
Mose Allison (Piano)
Major Holley (Bass)

The set was recorded June 1 and 3, 1960, at Fine Recording Studio, New York City.

The most unusual selection on this Al Cohn/Zoot Sims set from 1960 is "Improvisation for Unaccompanied Saxophones", a short but effective two-tenor workout that, through a clever arrangement by Cohn, gives one the impression that both saxophonists are using circular breathing. Another departure is "Angel Eyes", which has both Cohn and Sims switching to clarinet and showcases Major Holley's singing and bowed bass. Otherwise the co-leaders stick to their main instruments and enjoy swinging together with the assistance of Holley, pianist Mose Allison (who would soon be starting his own successful solo career), and drummer Osie Johnson. ~ Scott Yanow

Volume two in the Classics Stan Kenton chronology presents all of his Capitol and V-Disc recordings made between January 16 and December 26, 1945, with a pair of initially rejected Gene Howard vocal sides from 1944 tossed in as bonus tracks, out of sequence, like an afterthought. Singers would now become an increasingly important ingredient in the postwar entertainment industry. At the beginning of 1945, Kenton's featured female vocalist was sultry Anita O'Day, who later explained with characteristic gut level honesty why she quit after the session of January 16: "The band was great -- but it wasn't a swing band." June Christy began her own recording career with "Tampico" on May 4 after carefully studying the recordings of O'Day, who must have been a tough act to follow. There were occasional bouts of crooning from Gene Howard, and a Roy Eldridge disciple named Ray Wetzel sang and blew his trumpet on "I'm a Shy Guy." Kenton himself was one of four voices used on "I Been Down in Texas," an overbearing, embarrassingly contrived, campy combination of bop caricature and western novelty, grossly cluttered with imitation hepcat vernacular and hyped-up corn. On the more authentically hip side of things, "Around the Town," "Southern Scandal," "Opus in Pastels" and "Painted Rhythm" are among the better instrumental tracks from this part of the Kenton discography. Already the arrangements indicate the influence of Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Buster Harding, Earl Hines and the Billy Eckstine Orchestra. With all of the innovations circulating in the air at that time, it was Kenton's steadily expanding ensemble that attracted much of the attention with its "modern" angularities, shrill brass and bop-flavored charts. Kenton's sax section continued to morph during this period; Stan Getz split around the same time as O'Day and Kenton's old running buddy Vido Musso was back with the band on October 15. ~ by arwulf arwulf, All Music Guide

  Stan Kenton's earliest recordings as a leader make this first volume in the The Choronogical Classics Kenton chronology the logical starting point for anyone seeking to comprehend his life and work. Beginning with a long lost "Etude for Saxophones" and plowing through nine Decca sides from late 1941 and early 1942, the producers of this compilation shed light on Kenton's pre-Capitol period. With the exception of "This Love of Mine" (sung by tenor saxophonist Red Dorris), all of the Decca recordings are instrumentals that contain premonitions of Kenton's eventual obsession with stylized modernity. Parallels could be drawn with the music of Claude Thornhill, Larry Clinton and Raymond Scott. Frankly speaking, however, some of these early Kenton routines come across as rather self-consciously put together; the band goes through the motions but the overall approach to rhythm and swing feels rather forced. "Lamento Gitano" transcends these limitations, and the catchy "Concerto for Doghouse" is built around Howard Rumsey's excellent sung-and-plucked bass solo. By the time "El Choclo" was recorded, the band was clearly beginning to find itself and was ready for its next phase of stylistic evolution. The session that took place in Los Angeles on November 19, 1943 was Kenton's inaugural involvement with Capitol Records, an exclusive business arrangement that would continue for many years, superseded only by the occasional date for the United States Armed Forces V-Disc label. Kenton always listened carefully to other bands and learned his best lessons from African-American archetypes and innovators. His signature stamp of originality begins to materialize during the second half of this compilation, betwixt and between various well-chosen covers. Red Dorris does surprisingly well with Duke Ellington's "Do Nothin' Till You Hear from Me," and after two years of experimentation the overall sound of the band has improved noticeably. The very first recorded version of "Artistry in Rhythm" signals the true inception of the Kenton sound. Seasoned early modern jazz heads will want to listen carefully to the reed section as Kenton was already beginning to employ great saxophonists like Art Pepper, Boots Mussulli and Stan Getz. Admirers of Anita O'Day will appreciate an opportunity to savor four of the six songs she is known to have recorded with the Stan Kenton Orchestra. ~ by arwulf arwulf, All Music Guide

Originally released on United Artists (441) in June, 1975.

  This was War's sixth LP (their 8th counting the two with Eric Burdon). It was released in 1975, charting for 31 weeks and peaking at #8. The title song was a top-10 hit.
One of War's best-known and best-selling albums, WHY CAN'T WE BE FRIENDS? is the crown in the band's 1970s winning streak at United Artists. Both sunnier and more heavily Latin-themed than the group's earlier releases, the disc finds War distilling its experimental blend of multicultural pop styles into a refined, irresistibly attractive record. From the positive, Caribbean-flavored opening cut, "Don't Let No One Get You Down," to the superb funk of "Heartbeat," to the four-part medley "Leroy's Latin Lament," WHY CAN'T WE BE FRIENDS? is full of outstanding songs.

O'Donel Levy Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky 1973

A1   Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky  3:20    
A2  Marbles 6:25   
A3  Will It Go Round In Circles 3:20   
A4  Livin' For The City 4:59   
B1  Sideshow 4:48   
B2  Willow Weep For Me 6:20   
B3  Hey, Love! 3:17   
B4  Are You Foolin Me 3:07

....Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky, O'Donel Levy's follow-up to his excellent Simba, is something of a letdown in comparison. Simba  featured a bunch of solid tunes, written and dynamically arranged by Manny Albam. Although both albums were produced by label head Sonny Lester, without Albam's input these sessions seem somewhat lost. The title cut is not a direct ripoff of the Allen Toussaint tune, but it is fairly derivative. The second tune is  a direct ripoff. "Marbles," credited to Levy, is actually a John McLaughlin tune, from his album Devotion, and it's downhill from there. Billy Preston's "Will It Go Round in Circles" is taken at breakneck speed, and let's just say Levy  is better off sticking with instrumentals. "Livin' for the City" gets a heavy wah-wah makeover, but is one of the better tracks on the album. The rest is just unremarkable. "Sideshow" shows the ballad side of Levy's playing, and the standard "Willow Weep for Me" is treated as a pretty straight blues. None of this is awful; it just lacks the great tunes and arrangements of its predecessor. Unless you simply can't get enough O'Donel Levy, skip Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky and stick with Simba. ~ Sean Westergaard, All Music Guide
