Re: A Mixcraft Testimonial

I use both Mixcraft and Reaper. Reaper has incredible power and flexibility but to be honest I have never gotten into the flow of it. Mixcraft is comfortable and fits my humble needs. I believe Mixcraft has the flexible and power to make most any project top notch if you have audio engineering talen...

Re: Vocal to MIDI?

I think Band in a Box Audio Wizard can do this. I have used it before on signal note audio (guitar) to midi. Results are mixed. Also, I believe upgraded verisons of Melodyne convert audio to midi but will cost more.

Startech PEXUSB7LP 7 port usb 2.0. I found one used on ebay for $8.00 which included shipping. My win 7 machine recognized it without the need of propritary driver installation.

Audio dropout fixed

Just a FYI for people who may have a similiar problem. I had been troubled with intermittent audio dropout for sometime on my ThinkCentre i7 desktop using a Focusrite audio interface with the ASIO drivers plugged into the the motherboard 2.0 USB slot. I could not fix the problem completely with buff...

Re: Best Antivirus ?

I've used Sandboxie with Windows Defender with good luck. Very minimalistic. 2 cases in the last couple of years that a virus or malware tried to get into my computer via a web page and was stopped by Sandboxie.

Re: Guitar Rig 5 Odd behavior in MX8/WIN 10

I could never get Guitar Rig 5 to work in Mixcraft 7. After being frustrated, I deleted from my machine. Amplitube works great.

Re: Mixcraft Pro Studio 8 System (CPU) Utilisation

Sometimes the on board graphics can cause dropouts. Make sure the graphics is set to optimal performance not quality. A dedicated graphics card should also take care of this potential problem. Jim

Re: Increased RAM from 4gb to 8gb but...

Does Mixcraft make full use of multi-core processing? Only Acoustica can answer this but usually the Audio Engine needs to be on a single core due to timing considerations. So a 4 core i7 and 4Ghz with give better performance than a slower 16 core Xeon due to the audio engine being on a single core ...

Re: Audio Drop Outs On Playback & Rendering

My guess it is in the buffering. I had a similiar problem in Mixcraft on a song. I tried the song in Reaper at the same buffering and I had a similiar dropout. In both cases the CPU usage was minimal. I increased the buffer size and it appears to have solved the problem.

Re: Acoustica Instruments and Mixcraft 8

I went ahead and installed the 32 bit trial of Mixcraft 8 to see how the Acoustica Instrutments did on that. The Mixcraft 6 Callisteia demo project mixcraft cpu usage was between 18% and 22% in Mixcraft 8 32 bit. Still quite a lot higher than Mixcraft 7 pro 64 bit cpu usage of 5% to 10%.

Re: Acoustica Instruments and Mixcraft 8

Both the Mixcraft 8 trial and Mixcraft 7 Pro are 64 bit. So if I hear you right, the 32 bit Acoustica Instruments are unchanged. The Mixcraft 8 sound engine has changed and the mixcraft CPU meter reads quite a bit higher on these JBridged VSTs in Mixcraft 8.

Acoustica Instruments and Mixcraft 8

Just downloaded the trial of Mixcraft 8. I playing around a little and I loaded Callisteia from Mixcraft 6 and Sword of Fianna from Mixcraft 7 into Mixcraft 8. I wonder if Acoustica Instruments got updated - they sound better on Mixcraft 8 (at least to my ear) but CPU usage went way up. When Callist...
