10 years ago, I played with Samplitude – a powerful recording and mixing software. I liked it, because it was intuitive. Learning how to use it took little time.
Samplitude is still out there. It is produced by MAGIX. The latest version is MAGIX Samplitude Music Studio 2016. I checked it out, but I was not paying much attention. I ended up downloading the trial version for MAGIX Music Studio 2016, which looks like a light edition version of Samplitude. It sells for $49.99 (as opposed to $99.99 for Samplitude), has less virtual instruments, does not support higher bit resolution and sampling rates, does not support VST3, etc.
