Greg, Dan, or Eric

I have had Mixcraft since 2014 so I am no rookie. Up until then when it comes to reliability I would give it a B+. It did some stupid crap such as "Mixcraft Not Responding" some glitchy playback for no reason, and tracking delays, but after a restart things were usually OK. Often too many ...

Re: Sound Cutting Out

Diagnostics say that sound card drivers are fine. I would put very little faith in Windows system diagnostics for this purpose. I have had (for example) it say everything is fine for a completely inoperative audio card/driver. At best that response means it shows being installed as intended IMO. Th...

Re: A Bluesy Rocker and A Classical Piece

Great job, but i recomend you to use some EQ and fucus more on the dynamics, NO ONE plays a long note in a string instrument without some dynamic (unless it have some proposite) Plus, you could use some free kontak's violin or cello vsts i use sometimes the Blankus cello (it is amazing for a free v...

A Bluesy Rocker and A Classical Piece

https://soundcloud.com/cg-instrumental/late-night-blues-thing The sax part is a loop that came with Mixcraft. I sent it to Beth Hart but have not heard back. https://soundcloud.com/cg-instrumental/violin-cello-duet-largo-longer-version This was done using the MIDI editor and virtual instruments.

Re: Sound Cutting Out

Does this happen in YT when Mixcraft isn't open in Windows? Or only when Mixcraft is also open? Seems to me the description would lead to a soundcard/driver issue. But more details might be needed to verify. Diagnostics say that sound card drivers are fine. When mixcraft is open and it cuts out, ot...

Re: I have some questions about mixcraft's MIDI

Hi and welcome. No need to apologize your doing fine. One thing unclear to me is the term "MIDI line" I assume you mean individual tracks or lanes. No you cannot overlay or view multiple MIDI tracks at the same time. It has been a fairly frequent request, hopefully it will be part of some...

Sound Cutting Out

I think this is more of a Windows 7 problem but it happens more with Mixcraft that with Youtube. Running Mixcraft 6.1 Sound will play for a few seconds to a few minutes then in stops and won't work again until I close and restart Mixcraft. With Youtube is comes back after I stop and restart the vide...

Re: Major Technical Computer Question

What we all need is a new streamlined OS for audio dogs. It won't be as easy as just an OS though. It'll have to be the biggest and best of processors, ram, memory, cpu, monitors etc. We all know how much 'specialized' systems can run. The way things are, you can build a monster computer for about ...

Re: Major Technical Computer Question

Currently I have been running WAVE RT so that I can monitor incoming audio at low latency but the best resolution it offers is 16 bit but a guy who will be mastering and collaborating needs 48000 and 24 bit. When I go to wave I can record at 48000 and higher and at 24 and 32 but I can't monitor the...

Major Technical Computer Question

This involves preferences and computer power. I'm currently running an i3 and 4 gig RAM.

Re: How to keep sound from getting to overwhelming when all the elements come together in a song when vocals etc. come i

Basically, I have a song that starts with one guitar for the first measure. When the third measures hits a new guitar part comes in on top, and at the fourth measure and the start of the 5th, probably like 6 or 7 new elements come in. I am just wondering, what techniques do people use to keep the s...

Re: Various issues and frustrations...

When you run Decrapifier how much more power are you seeing? I don't use decrapifier, as my system is homebuilt -- there's nothing on it I didn't put there. I suggested the utility in case you needed it. I hate to say this, but your interface is likely the weakest link of your system. ASIO4All is a...

Re: Various issues and frustrations...

I have a core i3 and up until recently I had no issues. Even with a lot of tracks running and while recording MC reports it is using less than 30% system resources. It uses 40 - 60% when rendering music and video. That said, I'm running 6.1. I have used a Berringer 222 UCA interface with no issues....

Probably going to buy it out right as I am getting a new computer in a few months. I'll probably go with the pro version. Feeling brave.

Re: Getting Error Message: Mixcraft Won't Record Audio Track

I should mention that I'm running 6.1. The is really the only issue I've had and now it appears to be a non issue other than some stuttering is exclusive mode.
