Re: Bit Depth Clarification

Heh, now it seems that it's you who's missing something Greg. There's a difference between 32 bit and 32 bit floating point. MC converts all files to 32 bit floating point after the fact. The misunderstanding I was experiencing in my OP was that when a clip shows 32 bit, I thought it meant 32 bit fl...

Re: Bit Depth Clarification

Yes I think I'm getting it now.

MC invisibly converts to 32 bit floating point, after that, right?

Re: Bit Depth Clarification

"Format 18 is ASIOSTInt32LSB, which is a 32-bit integer. The device's hardware may be recording at 24 bits, but it's giving the data to Mixcraft as a 32-bit integer, which is what we're writing to the file. There is absolutely no way for Mixcraft to know that the audio is "only" 24-bi...

Bit Depth Clarification

If I click on a clip recorded using my Alesis Multimix (which has a 24 bit capacity only) the audio details in the project section show the file as 32 bit. I assume because MC has converted the file to 32-bit floating point after recording. I have access to a Tascam US-16x08 (also 24 bit). Files rec...

Re: Thats it i am done, I am sorry, its been a good run folks.

I used Mixcraft Pro studio for around 10 or so years and it was wonderful BUT now that i am recording real acoustic drums it has problems keeping up when the project gets a lot of tracks and effects... I have projects with over 100 tracks and 300 plugins, and they all include acoustic drums. MC run...

How can I force it to recognize the rest on the first beat so I get a loop with 4/4 measure where the snare hits on beats 2 and 4?

Thanks!


Drag the left edge of the new clip a quarter beat.

Re: Vocal harmony plug in

Mixcraft comes with Melodyne. As I understand it that is what the big boys use to generate harmonies. I use it for harmonies often - it not only shifts the pitch but attenuates the formant. In solo it's a bit ropey but in the mix it's pretty convincing.

Re: Best method for CONSISTENT chorus timings?

Couldn't you just quantize or autowarp? But if you're talking about the chorus effect, automate. M I should’ve mentioned that I’m not talking about a chorus plugin, but instead I’d like the chorus vocals as a whole to hit on beat every time it comes back in the song. Currently I adjust the vocals b...

Yes, think of clip automation as adjusting the gain pot at the top of a mixer channel.

Re: MIXCRAFT 7 - MIX DOWN TO WAV FORMAT

The volume automation is definitely buggy. It often creates all sorts of crackles and pops at each node point. I'm not aware of MC completely ignoring it on mixdown though.

Re: Using two different interfaces

So its impossible (no matter what) for a digital input (no conversion) to have latency? Latency refers to what you are hearing compared to what you are playing. If you play a note but there is a 10ms delay before you actually hear it, then there is too much latency. This happens when you are passin...

That's a separate issue, not related to latency. Latency is specifically the time it takes for A/D D/A conversion to take place in the interface.
