Audio drops when mixing to WAV/mp3

Postby fropdaddy » Mon Feb 18, 2013 12:20 am

I hear everything excellently when tracked in Mixcraft 5, but when I mix down to WAV or mp3, the vocals completely drop out mid song. There is no explanation as to why that I can figure out, but it is really frustrating! Has this happened to anyone else and what is a possible solution!

Thanks!

There is a cross fade thing on the track, now that I look at it, as in I copied a another vocal part to the track. But why would it disappear when mixing down?

Now I eliminated the crossfade and half the entire song is missing. Still mixes down to 3:00, but only has 1:04 of actual sound. Really confused and anxious for any help I can get!

One last try for tonight and still dropping out half the song. Nothing is muted, plays great in mixcraft 5, drivers are good, internet and security are turned off. Have a great song and can't do anything with it. . . .

Hi,

Some plugins can't handle a change in sample rate when you mix down. Try mixing down to a wave file with a sample rate of 44100 Hz. Click the "Edit Details" option on the screen where you name your mixed down file.

Also make sure you've got Mixcraft 5.2 build 152.

P.S. You might also consider upgrading to Mixcraft 6.

Would LOVE to upgrade to 6, but can't right now . . . I followed your advice, downloaded build 152, but still get the same result . . Any other possibilities? If I can ever get this song mixed down I can make enough to buy Mixcraft 6! :D

Hi,

If mixing down to a 44100 Hz wav file didn't fix the problem, try mixing down to a 48000 Hz wav file.

I sent an email with two project versions that were having issues. I tried erasing what seemed to be problem tracks and saved as a new project, but it didn't help. All audio still drops out at a certain point, while the clock is still running.

Thanks!
