This is the best crossfade editor I've come across. The crossfade area can be dragged intact anywhere along the timeline. All the presets curves can be edited by selecting multiple points. Equal gain creates a mirror image of in/out curves. The play section is ace. You can multi copy to another section of the track or copy to other tracks.

I'd like the ability to toggle between mono and stereo mode in real-time to check the stereo image during mixing. I think this is critical. Thanks!

I would be glad if there were a shut-the-%*&$-up! button. This button should cut ALL sound inclusive effect sounds etcetera. Just plain silence! A double click on the "rewind to start" button would be perfect. Thanks for your attention.

As MixCraft seems somewhat prone to lockup (in fairness, many programs are) when saves or loads are interrupted with a mouse click, I'd suggest enlarging and/or moving the green progress bar from its small size and location near the bottom-left, to center. Thanks!

Select all what? To perform what?

You can select an area, range, group etc. and use that selection a number of ways. Maybe what you want is already possible?

Not that I know of, I want a faster way to select the loop area when active. Instead of having to fine tune the zoom every time I finish a mix just to convert it to wave. As is I'm constantly fighting the zoom as in 7 it seems so much more intuitive. I didn't have to zoom down to ridiculous levels.

Okay, here are the two features that I can tell you will be in Mixcraft 9:

1. Curved automation
2. Tempo envelopes

Oh, and pitch automation for clips, so:

1. Curved automation.
2. Tempo automation on the master track.
3. Pitch automation on clips.

As yesterday I would like to render just a clip to audio for sending to a support site in case of a special VST it came to my mind that one of the greatest options of the daw I used for years and kind of missed most I would really like to see in mixcraft and that is to render a clip to midi. Background: if you use a chordprogression on a midi clip (generated from something like Captain Plugins or whatevever) as midi track input and another VST/Kontakt with sequencing capabilities it is always a pain in the a.... to record that output to a midi clip/track so I really loved this function that you can just render the output of that sequencing VST DIRECT to midi and that this works on CLIP level.

Morning,

The ability to colorize VST names would be helpful. And presets in the instrument list for that matter!

Best,

Nathan

Hi,

Not sure what you mean by your second suggestion, but you can create custom entries in the instrument list for particular presets right now. That's what a lot of the items in the instruments list already are.

1. Make a custom preset for a virtual instrument.
2. Add your custom preset to the instrument list by clicking New Preset in the Change Instruments dialog.

Hi again,

And while we’re at it I’d make the colorize work by say, pressing left arrow plus a number. So you could scroll up and down the list, audition the preset by pressing the right arrow that might say trigger a short arpeggio, and then press the left arrow and a number key to colorize it. That way we can just blow through the list and categorize our presets and VSTs.
