MIXCRAFT 7 - MIX DOWN TO WAV FORMAT

Postby bpenza » Sat Apr 13, 2019 8:02 am

I've got a mix. Sounds fine, but the vocal has too much breathing. So I edit the vocal track volume and reduce during the breath segments. The mix sounds fine. I export the mix to .mp3. Listen and it sounds great.
I export the mix to .wav (to get the full essence of data) and the .WAV COMPLETELY IGNORES ALL MY EDITING ON THE VOCAL VOLUME TRACK. AS IF I DID NOTHING.

Anyone know why .wav export does this? Thanks for any help you can give.

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.

Did you mixdown with the same bit and sample rates as you recorded with? That'll do it every time.

I’ve never experienced that problem with MX8.

Hi,

If the mixed-down sound sounds normal when you load it back into Mixcraft, then it's probably the Windows audio enhancements thing, or some other playback issue.

If the mixed-down sound sounds wrong when you load it into Mixcraft and play it, then try this;

Mix down to a wav file that has the same sample rate as the one you're using in Sound Device preferences. For example, if you're using a sample rate of 48000 Hz in Mixcraft's sound device preferences, mix down to a wav file with a sample rate of 48000 Hz. To change the sample rate of your mixed down files, click Edit Details / Specifiy Settings when you go to mix down.

Why is this happening? Because some plugins don't work properly if the sample rate changes upon mix down.
