Re: Midi Suddenly Cuts Out

Try a different USB port (Stick with USB2 ports. USB3 are theoretically backwards-compatible, but can be flaky).

Just to be clear, are you printing the midi piano track(s) to audio or rendering the whole project? (It's the former you should be trying first).

Re: Mic for mac

Are you using an audio interface to record into Mixcraft? If it has mic preamps, then any decent quality mic(s) with XLR jacks will work nicely. If you don't (and are getting by with just a sound card), then you should look into an audio interface that can handle the I/O you need. There are lots of ...

Re: Firewire nightmare

Does the laptop have an express card slot? If so, this will work with most FW devices:

Re: Firewire nightmare

Does Mixcraft work with the laptop's onboard sound card? (You could temporarily try the asio4all driver to test it out). If Mixcraft can't work at all, then that would suggest a corrupt install or maybe download.

Re: Laptop restarts automatically when open Mixcraft project

My guess would be it's overheating (causing the restart).

Core Temp is a free utility that can monitor your PC's temps. Check out this video:

Re: Needing a new interface

It does a great job.....when I get the chance to record that is. lol Think the model is 242. +1 Steinberg has a line starting around $100 USD all the way up to around $700. I've owned two -- a lower end USB ...

Re: Kontakt 5 problem

Bill, the reason I maintain it's not the fault of MC 8 x64 is that Kontakt 5 is working just fine in MC 8 x64 on my system. Also, to my knowledge, no one else on the forum has reported this issue. Let's go back and take a look at your VST settings.... Native Access annoyingly chooses its own VST pat...

Re: Kontakt 5 problem

Very unlikely it's a Mixcraft issue. You should uninstall Kontakt 5 and 6, including all VST (DLL) files, and start over. (Sample libraries are not VSTs. Kontakt itself is a VST as well as a standalone program). You should probably just install one version or the other. If you have any projects with...

Re: Library Sounds are not working?

How did you download the loops? Maybe a corrupt download? Did you do a system reboot after the install?

Also, try launching Mixcraft with "Run as Administrator".

Re: White noise in audio recordings?

Your interface is entirely bus-powered, so it's important to try different USB ports (since they are grouped on different hubs) especially if you're experiencing noise issues.

And stay with USB2 ports, as USB3 are not as truly backwards-compatible as the marketing would suggest.

Re: Audio Skipping - not DAW related?

So, I'm going to end up with a 256 SSD main C drive; a 500 laptop 7200 drive and a normal 500 7200 drive which I picked up for next to nothing. So my question; how would you distribute stuff over those 3 drives? Here's a classic article from Sound on Sound magazine on DAW partitioning (and the reas...

Re: 32 or 64 bit?

... I was getting a few pops and clicks and in my troubleshooting process ... It might have something to do with your interface operating at 1.5 ms latency, which is extremely low -- clearly too low for your setup. Bump it up one setting (i.e. 64 to 128, or whatever it is) and that should get rid o...

Re: Issue with Mixcraft 6

Try this to start Mixcraft:

Right-click on Mixcraft shortcut, choose Run as Administrator.

Also, make sure settings inside Mixcraft are correct. This video (first 3 min or so) should help:
