Re: Tambourines

My go to tambourine is the one that comes in the NI Kontakt factory orchestra library. The full version of Kontakt opens a world of cheap,free, or just downright great libraries up to you. Watch for their sales.

Re: envelope

It's been so long since I've worked in 7, I can't say for sure but I believe 7&8 are pretty much identical in that area. 6 is way back and out of my memory. You are not all that clear about what you want. You can "drop dots" on 8, just as you could in 7 (and if I can remember right all...

Re: Master Fader

GUILTY! (because I'm lazy :oops: ) If you have listened to my stuff you know the wide dynamic range I work with. Even though none of the tracks or even instruments are near clipping, with the larger orchestra tuttis the master will creep into the red, so the master gets turned down. Only downside I'...

Re: Ear Buds For Mixing?

One of our OFC members (can't remember who: OFC :lol: ) uses "a box of earbuds" to check his mixes. However that creates another problem. I usually check my mixes on an audiophile system, the car stereo, and the local senior's club sound system plus others as available. Problem is the mix ...

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

+1 to Dale's post. Time, money, and effort is more properly spent on filling the holes in Mixcraft's functionality as a DAW rather than trying to make it a 'Jack of all trades' piece of software. To edit videos use a video editor, then import it into Mixcraft for scoring. (I would even go as far as ...

Re: Audio Skipping - not DAW related?

I have all my libraries on SSDs other than my C drive too; as a matter of fact Mixcraft is also on another drive as well as any other software I can install not on C. This frees C to do only OS stuff. I upgraded my C drive about a year ago and paid a few extra $ to have the tech clone old C to new C...

Re: Audio Skipping - not DAW related?

You didn't put the specs of your drive(s) in your sig. Your previous Windows problem and your other symtoms would suggest to me that maybe your OS drive is either nearing full or about to go belly up. Just a thought.

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

OK so if the OP insists on sticking to the present setup and workflow, what would be wrong with a brickwall limiter on the master bus which would be deactivated just before final mixdown? I've seen this recommended elsewhere for people concerned about hearing damage.

Re: Why Do You Make Music?

There is no "Why". It is what I do and have done for the last 59 years in one way or another. When I don't do it I become frustrated and grumpier than usual. So people around me are happier when I do it :wink:

Re: Building REALLY cheap test speakers

A friend of mine put 2 quads in a movable rack/channel and had 15" Tannoys to fill out the bass. Personally I thought the Tannoys were over kill as he had to turn them way down, plus no matter how he played with it the crossover was apparent. This was about 1976 so maybe with today's hardware i...

Re: Not Another Free Plugin Thread

The term "Best" even among the pros is highly subjective. For a start, though, here are some places to look: http://www.soundsonline.com http://www.orchestraltools.com https://www.vsl.co.at/en http://www.chrishein.net/web/Willkommen.html https://www.spitfireaudio.com/ As you can see, they ...

Re: Kontakt standalone rewired to MC8? (or other workaround)

Not at my DAW right now, but pretty sure I'm using 5.5.2 in Mixcraft 8 without incident. Like you, don't want to upgrade beyond that. Later I'll post the actual build. Can't answer the rewire question, though.

Edit: 5.5.1451

Re: Skin

You can tweek the color on a lot of things in the mixskin.ini file, at your peril of course, so backup the original before playing.

Re: Is JBridge Better Than Mixcraft 8 Internal 32-Bit Plugin Handling?

I used jBridge in Mixcraft 6. When Acoustica came up with it'sown bridge everything went smoother
