Default Re: how to compare your mix vs. a reference?

You probably have seen this already, you can load your songs directly from the
iTunes folder into the plug in (loads MP3s and AAC too).

No need to setup a specific folder anywhere. As the reference tracks are loaded
into the RAM there is no interference or problem with streaming or something
while using Pro Tools or any other DAW.

What I have forgotten to say in my last posting, you can also set up a personal loop
at any reference track at any point of the track and it will automatically play back
only this loop when you switch from your track to the reference.

It΄s really a nice piece of software IMO .
And as mentioned before it does not influence the sound quality of your own tracks at all, amazing plug!
I love it!

All the best!

+10000000 on Magic A/B

Hugely applicable and you can cue up the part of the song you wanna hear for fast access to vers/chorus/bridge etc. Very helpful little plugin. Use it all the time here. Cheap too.

Wow...grabbed Sample Magic A/B last night after a few pops! Best beer inspired purchase of the week, if not year! An absolute gem of a tool. Going to check some mixes that were changed using this today. If you have $40 burning a hole in your pocket, this is a must have!
