Re: Mixdown issues with EastWest

The issue was never Stuttering. The issue is it cutting the ends off *all* the notes at release instead of letting them ring out. Its definately a bug, not a performance issue. But I don't know if its in Play or Mixcraft (Kontakt doesn't do it in Mixcraft. Play doesnt do it in Studio One/etc. Its......

Re: Interfaces: define "ins" and "outs"

Often the better interfaces include ADAT(sometimes called a "lightpipe") which typically includes 8 input and 8 outputs per ADAT connector. These are important if your planning on recording drums, or a full band live recording. You then add something like the 8Pre or Octopre, or if your no...

Re: Mixdown issues with EastWest

Thats fine and all, but the Play plugin really is multitrack beast, think Kontakt, but different manufacturer. Most of my tracks have 4-5 instances with 7-8 audio tracks per plugin. Its a *huge* pain in the neck to dump them all out to stems and remix them again, especially with film scoring where y...

Re: Mic for mac

Theres some respectably decent USB Condensor mics on the market these days that combine a condensor thats tuned for voices and the like and a small preamp and USB interface. Might be worth investigating. Blue usually make good quality in this regards.

Re: Major timing flaw while loop recording audio ???

Is this a zero crossing thing? Ideally when cutting between loops you either want to cross fade, or make sure the loop is starting and ending at the zero position of the wave form (Right on the line) to avoid causing a DC pop. I gather most DAWs do this automatically, but if its not, its easy enough...

Re: Mixdown issues with EastWest

Hi, Have you tried mixing down to a wav file with the same sample rate you're using in Mixcraft's Sound Device preferences? For example, if you're using a sample rate of 48000 Hz in Sound Device preferences, try mixing down to a wav file with a sample rate of 48000 Hz. Greg Will give it a try. The ...

Re: Mixdown issues with EastWest

Theres not a lot in that thread to try, other than "upgrade to the latest Play". Well its 7-8 years later and I'm on the latest. (Theres also "use edirol". Um, no, lol.) The problem seems to be that the mixdown mode just doesnt seem to be compatible with the play plugin, which is...

Mixdown issues with EastWest

I'm having bit of a recurring issue with mixdowns involving EastWest's play. If I take a simple piano line, use Bechstein piano (for example) as the patch and play it , it runs fine in regular DAW mode, but when I do a mixdown its clipping the ends off all the notes making it sound like theres a bru...

Re: Firewire nightmare

Windows 10 and firewire just don't get on well I've found. I went through maybe 4-5 firewire cards till I found one that worked well with my Focusrite unit, but XP-windows 7 worked great. Apparently its pretty common across all hardware. Whats likely happening is your having issues with interupt lat...

Re: Cinematic type tune

Have you considered something like EastWests composer cloud or something? Your composition and arangements pretty great, but some of the stuff suffers from the default instruments. Mixcrafts pianissmo, and the synths are all fab, but some of the other stuff really isn't as detailed as one would pref...

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

Support for some of the old Avid/Digidesign control surfaces would be amazing. You can pick those up dirt cheap on ebay these days, but they dont do the mackie control thing (Could you imagine Avid even *acknowledging* a defacto standard they didnt invent lol) so off limits :(

Re: Academic Question about gain peaking

Internally, uncompressed audio is just a series of numbers between 0 and 2^16 (or 24/32/64/whatever). Lets just for the sake of ease go old school for the sake of explanation, and imagine we're all 80s cats in mirror shades and akai samplers, and we're dealing with 2^8, thats a number between 0 and ...

Re: Blast From The Past - Mixcraft Compatibility with Digidesign 003 desk?

Compatibility with the old Avid/Digidesign Control-8 desks would be good too. You can pick those up for a song these days, and they are genuinely high quality bits of kit.

Re: Mic Preamp before USB Interface?

Yes and no re necessity. Most decent converters have decent pres (Focusrite particularly do) but sometimes an external pre can really do a lot to get better control over gain structure before inflicting it on the converters. I have a pair of modded Golden Age Pre73s (Basically component level knock ...
