Re: Default installation

In short, no other than keeping track of what's where. I have several drives and my setup is C: OS, D: Mixcraft program and projects, and Z: Mixcraft libraries. Samples libraries are scattered across F, G, H, N and Z. The only issue I have had is in replacing library drives you must taken care to us...

Re: Can I downgrade?

Also any projects you have done or are active now in 8 will not work in 7.

Re: Please reduce minimum BPM from 40 to 0.1

Can't speak for Ian, but that wouldn't work for me in my MIDI orchestral stuff. I fooled with it (time stretch) awhile back and results were not very pleasing :P When I have had to fit an existing audio track into a MIDI composition is where it works great for me, but that's pretty much off topic.

Re: Please reduce minimum BPM from 40 to 0.1

+1, but is there any existing DAW that goes below 20 BPM? I do have a work around, but it's a pain. When you reach 40bpm in quarter notes, switch to eighths at 80bpm and then when that is at 40 to 16ths, etc. While it works, it messes with my head for some reason. :| Though I've never used it, it sh...

Re: Free VSTs/VSTis: what have you used...

Early on I used a lot of free stuff, mostly to my chagrin. In instruments more likely than not 'free' means sloppy coding. Effects are a different story. 5orcery is still my goto compressor for orchestral stuff. Anything by Tokyo Dawn is of a very high quality IMO. Now if you have the full version o...

Re: Clip Grid Beats Don't Match Piano Roll

Acoustica knows about that bug. It's been there to my knowledge ever since v5. You can file a bug report as stated, but also maybe add your voice on the subject to the suggestion thread. Perhaps it will be added to the long-awaited MIDI editor overhaul. Biggest issue for me there is the piano roll d...

Re: No Kontakt Cello

Actually the solo cello that comes with Mixcraft is not all that bad, the biggest weakness being no control over vibrato. However articulations can be mimiced with CC#7 and/or CC#11 automations. Any other decent cello I have runs in Kontakt.

Re: Snare in a nuclear cooling tower

I was waiting for her to introduce a new EW plugin that replicates that plus another that filters it out, both on sale as a package deal for $250 :mrgreen:

Re: G-Sssssonique plug ins

The only one I use is FAT+ and most of the stock settings are hissy, but in that plugin you can either set or automate the amount of hiss.

Re: NOISE (with nothing playing and no tracks armed)

Hi, I use FAT+ on most projects. I only use one instance in the master. If you are using multiple instances that could be part of the problem. What you seem to be describing is the 'analog hiss' setting. I imagine that is cumulative as you add instances. That can be automated so it's not perceptible...

Re: EWQL Play 6

I suggest before doing any upgrades to Play you check the soundsonline forums and see who is having problems and with what. Some of the issues are Mac only, some PC only. Personally, I have no desire to use Composers Cloud or Hollywood Choirs, so am happy to stay on Play 4.xx

Re: Tweaking VST's while simultaneously monitoring them

Best way is to get a MIDI controller with lots of knobs and sliders and then assign parameters you want to adjust in your synth to knobs via MIDI Learn in Mixcraft.
