Hello guys!
I have some problems on my Mixcraft and I hope somebody here can help me.
First one, why Shred Amp Simulator don't support samplerates greater than 48,000? It was always like that? Is better that I record with wave files thatn WaveRT? What is the best configuration to record?
Can someone help me in why when I record with the MIDI cable with my keyboard, the tracks are slightly off sync. I didn't change anything and this problem is really bothering me.
And for last, why when I try to play more than 4 tracks on some recording, it starts to play real slow, like if my computer was trying tood hard to do this. It wasn't like that before. The problem is my computer or is something on my Mixcraft?
Thanks in advance!! :)

I dont use Shred, but I seem to recall it being said previously that like many common VST's, it does not work at high sample rates. Try 44.1

You seem to be confusing file types with audio driver types. Question makes no sense to me.

Depends on your specific rig, gear, etc. Not enough info provided to help.

What is your interface? Driver? Settings?

Settings? Try 44.1/16, it might solve several of your issues.

Hi,

Yes, the Shred plugin has always been like that. Stick with 44100 Hz or 48000 Hz for greatest compatibility with most plugins.

What kind of sound device do you have? WaveRT would be better than Wave. If you have a sound device that provides its own ASIO driver, you should use ASIO.

Are you using Mixcraft version 6.1 build 217?

The next time the slowness happens, quit Mixcraft and send us your mixcraft-log.txt file, which is located in this folder:

%appdata%\Acoustica\Mixcraft

Another way to find it is to click on the Windows Start Menu, select All Programs, then Acoustica Mixcraft 6 (or 5) and finally Logs. Submit an Acoustica Support Request and attach the log file along with a brief description of the problem.

Here's a short video: Mixcraft Mini-Tip: How To Find Your Mixcraft Log File

Hi everybody.
Thanks for all the help.
I sended the log file to the Suport Requests.
Also, I don't understand too much about computer configurations, so I do not know what 44.1/16 means. If you could explain to me, that would be great. :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sampling_( ... processing)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/44,100_Hz

Basically-
Why 44.1 kHz?[edit]
The rate was chosen following debate between manufacturers, notably Sony and Philips, and its implementation by Sony, yielding a de facto standard.

or if ya want to get technical about it-

In your original post you indicated problems attempting to record with sampling rates set at higher than 48K, I suggested that multiple problems might be reduced by simply using lower sampling rates.

There will always be debate on the subject, but in general, the use of 44.1KHz and 16 Bit depth (CD Quality) will help your system run more smoothly. 48KHz is sometimes used when creating audio for use in video projects. 24 Bit and even higher sampling rates are often used in studios, but may require higher end gear, more computer resources, etc. And for the typical user, may really only create larger audio file sizes and theoretical enhancements few humans can hear.........

In conclusion, just because some piece of gear says it is capable of 96KHz/32Bit (as an example) doesn't mean you should use settings that high. I personally found that working with 44.1/16 .wav files almost exclusively, Mixcraft and all my gear just worked smoothly. All other attempts created one hassle or another. And I accepted the reality that nothing I do is of a level that CD quality isn't plenty good for.

Indeed. Same here, should I ever make good music the people that matter will not care whether I recorded it at 44, 96, or 192. I know someone who also makes music on the computer and when he wants to hear my opinion, he sends me those big files (about 20 MB per song), saying he already reduced the sampling rate so it fits into an email attachment and I should just ignore the poor sound quality of 96 8)
