Oh yes! I am experiencing a Mixcraft crash and the Pultronic is on all tracks. I changed the piano part from Pianissimo to Accoustic Piano (freeing up 200Mb, yes?) and I cut out the OGG of the song I am studying and doing a cover of. I removed the Master Limiter from 6 tracks and dialed back the settings. I am screencapping at every step and thinking that this is about time for me to begin learning how to use Send tracks for these multiple tracks using the same effects.
Am also using the Alpha Sampler for the first time. I dig this tool!!!
I have had M7 Pro Studio installed for a week (?) and have successfully recorded and mixed to MP3 about 10 songs so it is not a Mixcraft issue in itself. I am running a Dell Inspirion 560 with an Intel dual-core E6700 with 4Gb RAM and Win7 64-bit is my OS. Should I have installed Mixcraft 64-bit? There was something I read while installing that caused me concern an thus I chose 32-bit.
Despite the issues I am having running M7 PS on my meager PC Mixcraft rocks!
