error creating recording file

Postby fleaster1 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 11:50 am

I'm trying to record a guitar part, I have midi and some other guitar parts on the project. I click the records button after arming the track and get the following message.

There was an error creating the recording file c:/users/neal/desk top 06 audio track (47).wav

Your recording path may be invalid, or you may not have permission to write files to the path.

Hi,

Are you still using Mixcraft 6?

If you have Windows write permission to put files in that folder, then this is probably due to your anti-virus program preventing Mixcraft from creating files. Are you using Windows 10? What anti-virus program are you using?

I am using Mixcraft 8.1 on windows 10. I am using Ad-Aware anti-virus.

As far as I know there is no folder c:/users/neal/desk top 06 audio track (47).wav

Hi,

Go into Mixcraft's Recording preferences. What do you have selected for the Default Project Folder setting?

Hi,

If you load that project and look at the Project tab, does it show the Neal\Desktop folder?

Maybe you should load the project, then select "Copy Project Files to..." from the File menu and put the project into a folder inside here:

c:\users\fleaster\documents\Mixcraft Projects\

I gave up on doing guitar tracks will redo them. I deleted all the audio tracks and just saved the midi tracks. Now when I reopen the tempo slows way down and pitch of notes changes.

Hi,

Are you using Mixcraft v8.1 build 418?

What do you mean when you say the tempo slows down? Does it start at normal tempo and then slow down? Do you have track markers in the project?
