Re: Suggestion about the suggestions

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestions suggestion! We might want to do something like this when we start soliciting Mixcraft 9 suggestions (since that suggestions thread was made way back in '15).

Re: Easiest and most efficient way to add echon last word of each line?

Hi,

You could start with our video on Send tracks: Using Send Tracks in Mixcraft.

Re: "Failed to open playback device."

HI,

If you set your latency setting too low, you will definitely have playback problems, so that could very well be the issue. How low you can set it depends upon a lot of factors, like hard drive speed, your sound device, how many cores your computer has, etc.

Re: "Failed to open playback device."

Hi,

Go into Mixcraft 8's sound device preferences and make sure the settings match what you're using in Mixcraft 6.

In particular, pay attention to the Playback Device setting.

Re: USB Interface Recommendations

Hi,

With the Focusrite interfaces, look for 2nd gen. models and avoid 1st gen. models.

Re: Mixcraft still the easiest learning curve!

Mixcraft is definitely my go-to DAW for songwriting and will probably always be. However, it sadly doesn't get used for recording anymore because the sound quality just isn't there, especially as relates to the stereo image. I am a huge fan of the old Emagic plugins (like the EVB3, etc...) and pick...

Re: Why Only 16-Bit From ASIO Interface

Hi, ASIO4All is just a generic ASIO driver. Your best option would be to get a USB audio interface that provides its own ASIO driver, along with the bit depth settings you want. In regard to the "32-bit" at the bottom of Mixcraft's screen, Mixcraft always mixes audio internally at 32-bit. ...

Re: Loopback Recording

Hi,

With recent updates to Windows 10, the "Stereo Mix" recording device seems have disappeared as a choice.

It used to be that it was just hidden, if you want to check whether that's the case on your computer, check out this FAQ article.

Re: The WORST feature in Mixcraft is.........

Hi, Here's the first part of the article: The stereo master fader in your DAW’s virtual mixer is not for controlling the output level of your studio speakers. This is an all-too-common mistake, but an easy one to make. I mean, it does turn down your speaker level, right? Yes, but think about what’s ...

Re: The WORST feature in Mixcraft is.........

Hi,

That's one of the reasons ASIO works so well -- it bypasses extra processing by things like the Windows Volume Mixer.

So, if you're using an ASIO device, you're back to just adjusting the speaker volume.

Re: My Confession

I am a long time user of another daw that was at one time possibly going to go out of business. During that time several daw companies frequented that daw website to offer their software as an alternative. MIxcraft was one of the offerings made. I must confess I was tough in my critique of Mixcraft...

Re: The WORST feature in Mixcraft is.........

Hi,

Are you all the way in Mixcraft (and not just on the new project screen)?

If so, it may be that this tip is not for those using ASIO mode.
