I've been able to solve every problem imaginable except this. I'm ready to buy the software now but if I can't get this working I'll need to bail and I don't want to do that because I haven't been able to get any other music recording software to work until Mixcraft.
Every time I mix down to mp3, it seems to go just fine. It's a 19-second track. However in Windows Media or any other player, after a quick note there is 9 seconds of silence, then the last half plays flawlessly. I've tried adjusting the bitrate up and down, adding tag info, removing all tag info and unchecking the box. Nothing works. And my recording plays just fine in Mixcraft. This happens whether or not I close Mixcraft before launching my mp3 player. I emailed my mp3 to a friend and he hears it too. The mp3 that Mixcraft is creating plays 1/2 second of my tune, drops out for 9 seconds, then plays the remainder crystal clear. Any ideas would be welcome. I have zero other issues with my updated sound driver, other mp3 files and within Mixcraft (right now). I just can't seem to create an mp3 and it's nothing fancy, a single virtual instrument keyboard track.
