That's often my approach. Sadly, my singing is not what it once was. I need to sing more and get my chops back.

Vocal Recording Tricks

Sometimes I duplicate vocal tracks and I will move one slightly forward a few milliseconds and the other back. I also to slight pitch shifts on the tracks with one slightly sharp and the other slightly flat. The change is subtle but very positive IMO. It fattens the vocals without it sounding like t...

Classic Rocker: Using a Mixcraft Loop

I don't think I could not have played a lead this good and appropriate for the song. Stroke of luck! :lol:

Originally the loop was at 85 BPM and in the key of E. Now it's a 120 BPM an in A.

Lanes???

I'm not certain as to how to ask this question other that to ask, what are they for? I noticed them by accident when I recorded on a track that I had already recorded on.

Are they for sub mixes?

Thanks Hound. That's nice to know :)


I get the impression by your music that you are a schooled musician because your compositions are so well put together. Am I right?

Re: Need help on how mix guitar / vocal track

I'm not a pro audio engineer so take what I'm about to say with as many grains of sale as you wish. When I first started using Mixcraft I would use the preset effects chain and edit each effect or shut them down. I mix for levels in mono. Nothing is panned until I start mastering. Now I duplicate vo...

Re: Is brand of a guitar important?

Building guitars isn't rocket surgery. There are some very good low priced guitars. It's easier to get an electric sound nice and play nice than it is an acoustic. A lot of guys are into "Partscasters". They buy a cheap Fender and customize it. I would never by a new acoustic because wood ...

Re: Minding Acoustica's Business

There are a lot of people still writing jazz, rock, blues, R&B, country, folk and pop but I haven't run across anything that knocks my socks off. I hear a lot of good technical playing but not much feel, creativity, or motive. Not meaning to offend but you've got to get out more, or start check...

Re: Issue with Mixcraft 6

Go to File > Preferences and set it for microphone USB then click OK. See if that works.

When you plug it in Mixcraft will say that it detected a new input device. When that happens, click OK/

I hope this helps.

Presonus has a forum that may offer some help.

Re: Minding Acoustica's Business

We had mixcraftlive.com for a while, but it was more like a myspace thing for musicians. You'd be surprised at what new features could be added in future editions of Mixcraft :-) I would think that a music only site divided loosely into genres with an old style radio feel would fly. If it had an em...

Re: Minding Acoustica's Business

As to the music business. It is dying and revenues are in the toilet. From your link: "Revenue from music sales in the United States has hovered around $7 billion since 2010..." I'd hardly call that dying or in the toilet. It's just shifted largely to streaming. It is sad. I pity kids tod...

Re: Minding Acoustica's Business

It would seems that DAWs are about to reach their zenith. Other than upgrades here and there I don't see what more anyone would want other than loops and effects and maybe some really good defaults for mixing and mastering that can analyze the music and create the "perfect" mix. Is it pos...
