that sound of breaking ice when freezing

Postby Juno » Fri Aug 30, 2013 6:45 pm

Hi,

Whenever i freeze a track, there is this crackling sound upon completion, like ice breaking. I freeze and unfreeze like a snowman with a blowtorch in an avalanche. So i'd like to hear "That sounds really good, Juno!" instead, please. :wink: Or, if that's not very likely to happen, i'd like to freeze tracks without hearing that sound. Is that possible somehow?
It's a bit loud and after a couple of freezes it turns into a sophisticated torture device :mrgreen:

If you are using Windows then go here: C:\Program Files (x86)\Acoustica Mixcraft 6\mixrez and there is a file called 'ice-freeze.ogg' its just an audio file. Either rename it to something like 'ice-freeze.off' or move it out of that folder or even delete it.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Dave, that was what i needed!
I still have to get used to the way Mixcraft is designed. In any other program that file would have been called dg6Yppz21056H6.zax or there would be 500 files called sound.snd, so for sure i thought looking for it would not let me find it.
Wrong. Experience is one thing, bias another.

Thanks again, Dave.

w/ the time it takes to freeze certain tracks on mine I could import something like Foreigner's "Cold As Ice" to play while waiting. :lol:

Great to know! It doesn't bother me much, but I didn't realize we could change that!! Awesome!

Yeah. I tried humming that song while freezing a track, but it didn't really matter, it seemed. So now i'm looking into helium cooling systems, but then i'm afraid that all vocals will sound like the Smurfs, you know, or like Primus.


:P

Glad I could help. Yes, Mixcraft's file structure is user friendly. I wanted to get rid of that awful transport bar font, and found the font file in one of the mixcraft folders. I just moved it out of the folder and hey presto, no more ugly transport bar font that looks more like it belongs in a digital alarm clock than a DAW.
