Mixcraft 8 64 bit via Steam?

Postby joeseye » Sat Apr 28, 2018 4:57 am

Hello,

I recently purchased Mixcraft 8 Home Studio on Steam. It seems to have installed the 32 bit version by default. Quite a few of my VST instruments are 64 bit and, of course, will not work. I'd been using Mixcraft 5 and 6 previously and wanted to upgrade to 8 so I could make use of the 64 bit versions of the plug ins.

The system requirements on the Steam page lists 32 or 64 bit.

How do I install the 64 bit version if I'm not using the standard installer? I don't believe it gave me an option.

Cheers.

The Home Studio edition of Mixcraft is 32 bit only.
Stay in tune, Mark

You could upgrade to Mixcraft 8 recording studio or pro studio. Both come in 32 or 64 bit. If you want to do that, contact support at http://support.acoustica.com

Ah... that should really be made clearer on the Steam page!

I kinda begrudge having to pay more for a 64 bit version of the software in this day and age?

You wouldn't be paying for a 64 bit version, you'd be upgrading to a much more powerful version, and it includes the option for 64 bit

I have the same problem. It didn't say you have to run steam to use mixcraft 8 home. now I have to use steam to start this software. they should tell people this before we buy. I can say I will never make this mistake again.
shame on you mixcraft for upsetting me I will be uninstalling steam and mixcraft 8 home. I hope you enjoy the $42.50 I wasted on this mess. why can't you just give me a serial code or whatever to make it run without steam? I feel like I have been violated! by acoustica mixcraft!
