Here are just a small list of the changes in Samplitude Access V5.1.1:

<h2>Jaws 17 Is The Minimum Version Of Jaws Required to Run Samplitude Access</h2>

The Object Manager and Track Managers do not work in versions of Jaws below 17 so Jaws 17 is now the minimum requirement for running Samplitude Access.

<h2>Windows That Need To Be Open In Order For Samplitude Access To work</h2>

In order for Samplitude Access to function properly the following Windows need to be open and have keystrokes assigned to them that will allow you to open them and if they are not then you will be prompted to open them:

<ul>
<li>Object Editor, Control plus O.</li>
<li>Visualization Window: Control plus Alt plus Shift plus V.</li>
<li>And time Display, Control plus Shift plus Z.</li>
</ul>

<h2>Changes To The INI Files</h2>

In the Software Instrument Routing Window:

<ul>
<li>The “simple instrument routing” radio button is checked.</li>
</ul>

<h2>Changes To the Optimised INZ File</h2>

Under audio set-up:

<ul>
<li>Device Resolution/Driver Communication radio button is set to 32 bit as this is what Magix recommend.</li>
</ul>

<h2>Under Extended Buffer Settings</h2>

<ul>
<li>The buffer number is set to 4 as recommended by Magix.</li>
</ul>

<h2>In the Software Instrument Routing Window:</h2>

<ul>
<li>The “Multi-Channel create new Tracks for instrument outputs” radio button is checked.</li>
</ul>

<h2>A Note On Using The Spacebar For Playback</h2>

The spacebar now again works natively in most Windows. If you wish to initiate playback else where E.G. such as in the Cross Fade Editor then please use the scripted keystroke Shift plus Spacebar instead.

<h2>Naming Multiple Tracks In Samplitude With The Track Edit Field Open</h2>

It is now possible to rename multiple tracks by leaving the edit field open and down arrowing to the next track and renaming it.

<h2>New Keystrokes And Changed Keystrokes In The VIP/Arranger Window</h2>

<ul>
<li>All controls found in the tab order in the VIP/Arranger are now only single press controls. E.g. Alt plus M pressed once will only toggle the mute status of the selected track. This option will be faster, as it is only performing 1 action. To access any available context menu when you’re on a tab control, press Control plus Applications or perform a Jaws right mouse click with num pad Star.</li>

With further keystroke additions to grid/snapping options, all current grid/snapping options have now been moved to Alt plus Shift plus the numbers row to keep them grouped together.

<h2>Changed Keystrokes In The EQ116</h2>

This may not impact on the user, but changes have been made E.G. bands 1 through 6 are accessed with Control plus number keystrokes. See the keystrokes document for more info.

Scale options and reset have been removed from the EQ116 scripts, as these are only visual windows.

<h2>Keystrokes For Synching External Devices</h2>

Keystrokes for Synching external devices have been added.

<h2>Multiband Dynamics, Stereo Enhancer and SMax11 Plug-ins Are Now scripted</h2.
