Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

Evening,

Turning the track fader into the input gain (pre insert) and keeping the mixer fader as the regular fader would be very helpful.

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Well there’s a few reasons, one is to understand the black box and try to triangulate what’s going on inside. Another is to evaluate the performance characteristics of my software, as I mentioned the identical test in a new project in MC yielded higher dB readings. Another is to establish a control ...

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Not necessarily. My interpretation of that portion of your comparison was that it showed a variance in LU where RMS showed very little right? This would be expected, as LU is weighted to better represent how hearing actually works as opposed to simple signal strength measurement. Thats the purpose....

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Morning again, By the way, I’ve noticed in MC that when you loop a clip that has a markedly different volume envelope position at the beginning and end of the clip you’ll get a pop or click. Does this mean that digital clipping is essentially an instant/extreme volume differential from a loss of inf...

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Morning,

By the way, does my little experiment show that the Sonic Anomaly/Unlimited LUFS meter is inaccurate if it changes that much with frequency?

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Morning, The driving force behind the experiment was to look at whether those signals were higher in the box. So in other words, if you had a non-multi compressor that happened to look at RMS in its signaling circuit, would it see a square wave or a higher frequency as being louder than a different ...

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Evening! So I was toodling around on a FB group and hypothesized that under the RMS method, square waves read higher than triangles, and higher frequencies read higher than lower ones. I apologize for the DAW used, but I conducted a video experiment to answer these questions you might be interested ...

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

By the way a pre fader insert option would be a helpful addition!

Eg separate the channel and mixer faders.

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Not sure exactly what the question is Nathan, but if it helps..... I don't rely on the stock meters for much of anything. Recording level maybe sometimes. I use meter plug-ins for increased accuracy for gain staging, mix-down, mastering etc. Nope that’s great! Just trying to understand how the sign...

Re: Metering in Mixcraft

Hi, I use the Voxengo SPAN plug-in because it has the K-system metering option. The Mixcraft meters appear to work as peak meters. I place the SPAN plug-in on my output bus, as the last plug-in. I have the free version and it works well. - Myran Afternoon, Thanks I’ll check into it. I am using the ...

Afternoon,

That’s what I thought. It sure seemed like real-time peak.

I’ve gotten as far as I can get without the theory so starting to learn from scratch.

Metering in Mixcraft

Evening, I was wondering, could Eric or Greg touch on the specifications for the built-in metering in Mixcraft? My impression is that they are peak meters only, and that there is no ballistic attack/release/delay on them like a VU meter would have. Do they correspond exactly with the dBFS scale, or ...

Re: Annoying TAP / CLICK

Morning,

Sudden shifts in volume envelopes will do things like this, especially when loops repeat.

Re: Amp Modeling?

Evening,

Well, if you don't want to spend money there's always Blue Cat's freeware plugin pack which includes an amp simulator.
