Hi, I'm pretty new with the Mixcraft and I have Mixcraft 6, Windows 7 xp.
I've used the Audacity before but wanted to use Mixcraft now.
I hope my question will not sound unreasonable but I was wondering if there's a possibility to record your voice into a karaoke music from your hard drive and edit with effects without messing the original music ? My soundcard is set on Wave cause it doesnt support Asio and I have SoundMAX Digital Audio as in/output on the soundcard.
It has worked pretty well with the Audacity for me but Mixcraft is different.
I've checked some videos on YouTube but I couldnt find anything particular that corresponds my request.
Or is there another way to do that ?

Yes you can. Take your karaoke song, it needs to be in mp3 or wav( you can do this with windows media player) and import it into one track of your project. Then arm the second track to record your voice while the song is playing back in your project. You can then adjust your vocal as you want and mix the end result down and export as mp3 or wav. Is this what you had in mind? :)

Yep, like Tom says.

Here's one I did recently with a singer I sometimes work with. Just make sure you have a backing track of reasonable quality - the one she supplied was not the best :(

On the vocal I used EQ, light reverb, and a compressor with a bottom end roll off.

Hi Trevor

I am sure you have but just in case have you ever looked at http://www.karaoke-version.co.uk/ ?

They have a version of I don't want to miss a thing. What I tend to do is to solo each track and save it as an individual mp3. These can then be loaded into Mixcraft as separate tracks and therefore the individual instruments can be edited in Mixcraft (like just those jangly guitars you were talking about).

It takes a little effort and it isn't free (each song costs £1.99). But the fee is for the song NOT each track so you can do as many remixes (in this case soloing each track) as you like for the one price.

The quality of the singing on these tracks is variable - but that is what you are most likely to ditch anyway!

Have a look at - http://www.karaoke-version.co.uk/custom ... thing.html

Cheers

John

Thanks John - this was just a spur of the moment thing. She wanted to give it to a friend the next day and that was the only version she had. :?

Just one little word of advice .. when recording your voice, wear headphones otherwise the mic will pick up the music and mix it with the vocals ;)

PS obviously have the music through the headphones, before someone picks up on it :lol:
