Re: 64 vs 32 bit (yeah, again - sorry)

You shouldn't have to buy anything again just to switch from 32 to 64 bit. If you own the license, that entitles you to download/install whichever version you prefer. That said, with your powerhouse system, I'd normally advise to go all 64-bit, but the problem is you are still on Mixcraft 5 which is...

Re: Mixdown takes 30+ minutes to start

Check your Windows system log (in event viewer) to see if there are any errors indicating a failing hard drive.

Re: Mixdown takes 30+ minutes to start

So this behavior is associated with certain projects? You don't get this just opening Mixcraft on its own (with nothing loaded)? How are you opening these project files? Double-clicking on the file, or opening MC and choosing the project? If it's one, try the other. Do any of these projects share th...

This is good advice.

BTW, I responded to your other thread as I didn't see this one. Install ASIO4all, and set Mixcraft to use that driver and see what happens.

Re: Greg, Dan, or Eric

I'm not Greg, Dan or Eric, but will try to help... What is your O.S., Windows 7, Windows 8.1, or Windows 10? What is your audio interface/ sound card? Version of Mixcraft? Latest build? If on Windows 10, the most common cause for "overnight" problems nowadays are forced O.S. updates. (Wind...

Re: Steinberg Steinberg announces "VST 2 coming to an end"

I'd be very surprised if MC devs haven't been fully aware of this for awhile. Also, reading the whole statement, this segment stands out: VST 2 compatibility with Steinberg VST hosts will remain, however, we recommend to root for the latest version of VST... Bottom line, even Steinberg's own hosts C...

Re: mixcraft8.exe - Bad Image

Corrupt download? Maybe try again, using a download manager.

If from CD/DVD media, you should be able to download the latest version from Acoustica once you create an account and register Mixcraft.

Re: Trouble arming USB recordings

Things to try (Start with the first one, and if that doesn't fix it, move to the next): - Do the devices show up under Device manager? If not, the drivers have gotten corrupted and need to be reinstalled (Disconnect them before installing software). Reboot the system. - Move the two USB device cable...

Re: unable to open playback device dialogue +++

If you are a professional (or even a serious hobbyist) you really should have a system backup in place... Something like Acronis True Image, which allows you to backup your system partition as a compressed file (image) to a different drive for safekeeping, and, most importantly, can be restored in m...

Re: Mixcraft just threw out the timing of my slices.

Are you on Windows 10? Auto-updates may have run and messed something up.

Check your MC settings, make sure they haven't reverted to default.

Press Ctrl+S (select all).


Just a small correction...

Ctrl+S is Save As

Ctrl+A is Select All

Editing audio/video is a memory-intensive task. 64-bit all around is better, assuming you have a decent amount of ram.

How much ram is installed in your system?

Re: Just me? Or working with video is full of bugs?

Could be a permissions issue. If everything is up to date (Mixcraft and Win 7), you could try starting Mixcraft as administrator (Right-click, Run as administrator).

Re: unable TO OPEN PLAYBACK DEVICE X 100

Mixcraft is used by thousands of people on a broad spectrum of audio interfaces. It's highly unlikely that MC is the problem if you are getting the same error message with six different interfaces.

Can you provide your system specs (including your audio interface)?
