Let me see if I can answer your questions:
1. Mixcraft 6 doesn't have any MIDI clock / sync features like that.
2. The best solution for this problem is to lower the audio latency. If WaveRT is available, try the "Use Exclusive Mode" option, which would allow you to try lower latency settings. Don't set them too low, or you'll get audio skipping. Better yet would be to have a sound device that provides its own ASIO drivers, like a Focusrite Scarlett 2i2.
3. You should have at least 925 MB of free hard drive space. If you install all the loops, that figure would be higher.
4. Mixcraft wouldn't run well over a network. We do have silent network install options for schools, but Mixcraft is designed to be installed on the local machine. This is at least in part because of performance issues. Running over a network could really cause some high audio latency, for example!
Thanks much Greg,
This information helps a great deal in planning and proposals.
Your latency tips have helped a good deal. Timing is much tighter now.
MixCraft is quite impressive given the price and modest system requirements.
Hopefully I can try using an analogue sync track (similar to striping a tape track) before my trial period ends, as there should still be a few analogue-to-clock boxes on the market (I think I still have at least one around here somewhere). That should make MixCraft serve as a Master clock right? If anyone has tried this successfully please let me know?
