Re: Record output of PC?

I've found that Windows 10 often updates the audio driver with a Windows generic driver and Stereo Mix does not work with it. Best off using the correct driver certainly Realtek works.

Trev I presume you have checked Stereo Mix is not hidden? (right click on empty space under recording).

Re: Vst3 to Vst help?

Hi I use VST2 Nectar3 & Neutron and never had either crash. Have had other plugins crash but never with any Izotope product I actually have stopped installing any VST3 these days as many seem unstable or in some they tend to use more resources which may or not be true; it's just a confidence thi...

Re: Keep having to re-set

Hi Perhaps playback is set to exclusive mode in Windows could be the reason. Right click on the speaker icon in the tray and select playback devices. Look in the playback device Properties, select Advanced and remove the tick in "allow applications to take exclusive control of this device".

Re: Finally Giving Up on Mixcraft

There has been made no mention of what sound card is being used which is quite important I believe!

Re: Recording levels, word lengths and dithering. Quality of analogue vs. digital audio.

I entirely agree with you Mark, music production since the 80's has become somewhat over produced. Yes technically it may sound better but, and you call it soul I call it warmth & feeling which is sadly lacking. Guess I must be an old fart as well - no I don't guess I really am as I started in t...

Re: Mixcraft 8 Guitar Amp Settings

Just to chip my UR22 has 2 Mic inputs one of which can can be switched between low/high impedance which seems sensible to me, was always very common in the good old valve days.

Re: Too many crashes

Hi
Sorry to hear of the problems you are having, you will need to submit your log files but no doubt Greg will come on and explain.

One thing I can tell you from my own experience the Studio Devil vst is notoriously unreliable as you will see if you search this forum for Studio devil.

Re: Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio Video Rendering

Hi I don't have a problem with encoding to Mp4 in Mixcraft 8, or as I recall WMV either. If AVI is your only option I would suggest this, Download & install https://handbrake.fr/ . Render to AVI and drop the saved file into Handbrake. Select a preset for your desired output format and where to s...

Re: MIXCRAFT 8 GLITCHES ON POWERFUL GAMING COMPUTER

The latest versions of Windows 10 (after 1709 I believe) are quite sneaky at taking control of audio, and printers, to work how it thinks it should. I would suggest clicking the Windows flag, going into settings and type Audio in the search box. This will give a list of various settings plus find &a...

Re: Neutron 3

Hi It works remarkably well and there were some very good opening upgrades. I tried it for a couple of weeks & is a big improvement on the previous version. The GUI is superb to work with, and look at! It is not clunky & resource hungry as Neutron 2 was/is allowing many more instances before...

Re: Help Choosing Plugins

and.. Warren if you don't want to pay for the rather costly Fabfilter don't forget, if you're not already aware of it, the wonderful free alternative, TDR Nova.
4 band dynamic EQ with side chain, compression & other useful features. Check some of the YouTube videos or the write-ups.

Re: 3M = Monophonic Mix Monitoring

Hi Warren
Place it as last effect on the FX of the Master.
You will see that below the low Eq knob on the Main Mix (master) fader on the Mixer or
the last button to the right of the BPM, Key and horizontal output meter on the control bar.

As Mark says it's all you need.
