Re: Need help with file

An unsolicited additional tip: If you mix down with this madness going on: Level 1.png It will likely result in a pretty poor sounding track due to severe digital clipping. Double click on your master fader, returning it to unity (zero) Leave it there. It is not a playback volume fader.... :wink: Se...

Re: Need help with file

Hello and welcome! OK, heres the deal: I am assuming you didnt write the MIDI for this project right? When you download MIDI projects, they often contain some rogue controls and commands. Cant ever say exactly why, cant say what the person who wrote it was thinking, or if its simply a mistake. But I...

Re: Yamaha PSR 8000 & Mixcraft 8

It still sounds to me like the OP may be expecting to get his keyboard sounds via midi, but I could be wrong.

Defaulting to the piano is normal, unless you select an different instrument.

There's missing info here.

Re: Please help a noobie

I'd suggest the best thing to is start experimenting to learn! Dont approach it as if your going to make your lifes masterpiece on the first try. You wont! You learn best by doing, so do! I cant help much specifically with Rap, but general help, certainly! You mentioned headset, did you mean headpho...

Re: Master Meter Levels

Thanks guys and brother Mark for a detailed explanation too :wink: Coming to think about it, I use T-Racks mastering suite which can be stand alone or plugin - very accurate metering system. Another route could be my Klanghelm VUMT meter with a brickwall limiter as last plug in the chain - I normal...

I suspect a language barrier and some interpretation issues. If that is a correct assumption- a little patient effort will probably clarify the meaning. 8)

Re: Something weird its going on....

Yeah, its hanging up on something during the scan for plug-ins. I think some potential causes are having folders being scanned that have files that arent plug-ins, or plug ins in folder locations that arent correct, etc. The new host installation probably initiated a "deeper" scan than has...

Re: Master Meter Levels

OK, lets back up- Trevor, actually the Mixcraft master meters last "marked" increment is -6Dbfs, but zero would be here: 0dBfs.png But the reason I would use something more precise (for the purposes you describe) is that you cannot judge peaks by eye, as you would never see it and this typ...

Cross post!

Not silly. Good question!

Your recordings etc. are not stored within program files and are not lost. Thats not a problem. 8)

Re: Install Question/Request

OK, perhaps it should say verbatim "new loops are available in your library..." Sheesh. :roll: Yep your right. I missed the part where you have a partition and store files in different locations. But this kind of minor thing can happen when you do that. (Not that its a bad thing to do....)

Re: Best methods for quality audio on recording and mixdown

OK, to clarify- my comments were based on a general summary of experience since MX 4.5 In addition, I have had some experience with other DAW's along the way that posed similar issues AND I have had some problems with big name, expensive plug ins from well regarded developers, so its not all cut and...

Re: Finally Giving Up on Mixcraft

It never ceases to impress me how the good folks who frequent this forum can go so far over the top to try and help people, but sometimes IMO its best to recognize: The OP never asked for help, just vented. I think sometimes the proper response is simply- good luck, hope you find a better solution. ...

Re: Master Meter Levels

Personal opinion- the native metering is grossly insufficient for accurate mix downs, much less mastering. (And Vu is largely outdated and irrelevant in the digital realm IMO.)

I use third party metering for true peak data. And loudness data too.
Last insert, master fader at unity.

Re: Kaia Apcmini

Akai APC mini I assume?

Are you asking for a midi map preset?

Are you saying the mapping isnt saving?
