Hi Greg,

last email, project files and logfiles has that template that COULD be opened and the last project file that could NOT be opened, both has exactly 4 plugs (or 6 if you count the Captain plus separately):

- Kontakt 6
- Captain plugins with Captain chords, Captain Deep, Captain Melody
- Chord Potion

Chord Potion and Captain plugins are midi plugins generating midi data for a track or working as an arp/sequencer.

So the only VSTi involved is Kontakt 6.

Sorry, I really tried to explain in detail in my last mail why it could NOT have ANYTHING to do with a bad plug and I just cant understand why you wont look ANYWHERE else. All this plugs work fine in the template when I open it but not anmyore if I do anything on the project even if it is only saving it under a new name.

I am using Mixcraft 8.1 Pro Studio and have consistently been running into an issue - I'll go to open a file, it will load it and get to 100%, then return to 0% and freeze. I am unable to open the project file. I often work around this by opening a backup file, but sometimes I have to go way back to re-access my file and lose a lot of my work.

I have no idea if this is due to Mixcraft, my computer, or some issues with third-party software like VSTs. I'm just hoping to find some help here.


Hello and welcome to the Mixcraft forum.

Out of curiosity, did you summit log files to Acoustica Support?

Don’t know if this was discussed in any of your research, but, it sounds like it could possibly be a hard drive issue or cache.
1. So you can open a project that has only midi file but no plugins?
2. On your systems, when was the last time you defragged a drive?
3. What is the drive speed of your hard drives and how full are they?
4. Have you tried changing your default project/file creation location to a different path/location?

Just some things I would play around with to see what results I get. :D
