No, Greg and I both replied at the same time. :lol:

Never cared much for that limiter. Too little control over the results.
Not a big limiter user though anyway. 8)

Okay thank you Greg. :)

Mark, out of curiosity, which effect plugins would you recommend, I’m mostly interested in EQ, Reverb, Compressors/Limiters, and maybe Delay (I rarely use Chorus, Flangers)? Oh, and preferably free.

EDIT: Never mind, I just found your "Free VST plugin recommendation list"... awesome, and thank you. :D

There you go.

I desire to be careful not to imply that anyone needs to go off plug-in collecting, but there are options if one wishes.
Its easy to get sidetracked and bury yourself in a bunch of stuff you don't really need...... :wink:

My intended point was that there are options if you wish to migrate away from those old classics. Many of the other included plug ins might also suit your needs.

Yeah your not joking... I just spent the past 6/7+ hours downloading/installing and messing around with VST plugins. I now have way more than I'll ever use regularly. I really only need a few standard type processors. But it was fun wasting time getting lost in candy land too... I needed to get over the plugin fever, lol. :wink:

EDIT: Now that I've had a chance to test out different VST's... Even though the Kjaerhus Classic Effects are old and only 32-bit, I still like them. Too bad the company is going or out of business, it would be nice to have 64-bit versions.

Alt-Click and drag to another track does this.

I started using Mixcraft sometime back because it is one of the few DAWs that I know of that works with Keys as well as time signatures (a bit like Acid Pro). It would be great if this was extended to Midi and the Piano Roll as well - so that we can analyse chords and scales, randomise in key, generate ARPs, etc. Cubase has a function where you can have chord labels in your timeline, which would be very useful.

Oh - and the transport bar at the top - or dockable/floating would be great. A way of displaying Bars and Time simultaneously on the clock too...

Keep up the good work.

Dockable transport seems to be a very popular request.

Hi,

A lot of them are already 64-bit. Others, like the Classic effects are no longer being developed, or are made by other companies who haven't offered us a 64-bit version. Which plugins were you concerned about?

Are Acoustica Virtual Instruments (i.e. strings, brass, synths, etc) 64 bit?

Yes, Acoustica Instruments, Acoustica Expanded Instruments and Acoustica Studio Drums are all 64-bit in 64-bit Mixcraft.

Hello
Feature request (sorry if this one was already asked):
The ability to overdub midi in the performance mode instead of creating multiples lanes (alt L)
When you want to use the performance mode and build a drum pattern, it's common to record instruments one after the other (kick, then snare, then hh...) while the loop is running. But you can't do that in Mixcraft. It's a showstopper for live use or training/improvising.

Hi,

Do you know about recording modes? Mixcraft Record Mode and Lanes

You could try Overdub mode.

Sorry if this has been suggested in this thread. I believe it's come up in other threads maybe. VST2 and VST3 presets are somehow handled differently, either by MC or by the VST standard. Many plugs don't have internal preset managers and rely on the DAW for that. There are VST2s that have presets available through the drop down box/window at the top of plugin window. The same plug in VST3 has the box greyed out. Is there a way to reprogram MC to make it's handling of VST3s more flexible so as to allow this? I know VST2s will probably be around for a while, even though Steinberg has deprecated the VST2 standard. But I recently learned that VST3s have a much better power management system. If a signal is not flowing through it, it essentially turns off. OTOH, VST2s will continue to eat CPU cycles, which is a big deal IMO, especially with older PCs.

Thanks Greg for the reply, but the video link does'nt show about overdubing in a midi performance cell.
I didn't find anything also in the manual.
So, is it possible to overdub in a performance cell (without using multiples lanes), and if yes, how?
