I hope the following isn't too late to help. I thought it might make starting in Samp a little easier.
To get going:
CLick use trial, etc untill you get to the Start Wizard
Choose " New Multitrack Project (VIP)"
In next window, type a name, choose 8 tracks and set time to 10 mins and press "OK".
Hit "I" on your keyboard to bring up project options.
Choose sample rate (or leave on 44k)
Click "system options" from the menu on the left side of the project options window.
Set your drivers to ASIO, tick "mix input and playback" and make sure the slider for "monitoring setup" is all the way to the right
NOw on the menu to the left select " VST/rewire" in the effects section. Here you can select the plugin folder where USAMO is located.
After that close the options and hit "M" to bring up the mixer. On a channel of your choice, click and hold the left mouse button on one of the slots where it says "plugins" and you'll find USAMO under "VSTI".
Then you want to go to the box at the very bottom of that channel labeled "out" and select the audio out for USAMO to send out of.
On the time display on the transport bar there is a little arrow in the top right corner. click it and change time display from SMPTE to bars/beats.
Now hit "I" again. Tick "snap to grid" and make sure "bars/beats" is selected. Close the optiions.
Now set a loop by holding left mouse button on the timeline and dragging to the desired length. You might want to zoom in a little before doing this, by clicking the little "+" at the bottom right of the VIP.
And save your project to save time setting up again when you reboot.
I'm pretty sure that should get you going. If I've missed something out (hope not,
) or you need to know anything else about setting up Samplitude , please let me know.
