I've been using Samplitude for a while now. It's been great for me. The controller support is the best there is - you can program any controller any way you want within Samp. The midi support is right up there. The load handling is great. Also, no issues using manufacturers audio drivers - but I do agree the Magix LLD should be an option and not a forced install. I've been getting on great guns with Samplitude. I have quite a few DAWs and it's my go-to for serious work. I think anyone who knocks it probably hasn't had experience with many serious DAWs or is of a younger generation and has only worked with EDM DAWs and never touched a real of tape.
Splat, Win 10 64bit and all sorts of musical odds and sods collected over the years, but still missing a lot of my old analogue stuff I sold off years ago.
