Midi Controller Stopped Working

My midi controller was working just fine in Mixcraft 9 Pro Studio and one day decided to stop. I'm using the Alesis QX25 and their website says it doesn't require a driver. I've rebooted, unplugged, deactivated in device manager and reactivated, and disconnected all other midi devices with no luck. ...

Re: Midi Keyboard works in MC7 but not MC8

So I figured out the problem. It seems that the problem is when the QX25 is listed under control surfaces in preferences. When I delete it as a control surface, I can use the keyboard to play virtual instruments. When I add it as a control surface the VI stops working. Strange, but at least I know a...

Re: Midi Keyboard works in MC7 but not MC8

Check the sound device preferences in Mixcraft 7 and also the sound device preferences in your son's copy of Mixcraft 8 and see if they match yours. settings are the same Have you tested with the same virtual instrument in all cases? I've tried different ones. I have made sure the instrument is loa...

Re: Midi Keyboard works in MC7 but not MC8

Start Mixcraft then the keyboard, the idea is for Mixcraft to tune in on the new device. Already tried that and it didn't work. It recognizes a change in the number of midi devices, but that's about it. Also/or, make sure the keyboard is not connect via a usb hub so give it its own usb input. It's ...

Re: Midi Keyboard works in MC7 but not MC8

Here's another piece to the puzzle...My son uses MC8 on another Windows account on the same PC. The midi controller works when logged into his Windows account, but not on mine.

Re: Midi Keyboard works in MC7 but not MC8

I restarted the computer and opened MC8 - did not work. Opened 7 and it worked fine. Interestingly, the mod wheels work in MC8 but none of the other keys do. Any other suggestions?

Midi Keyboard works in MC7 but not MC8

I am having trouble getting my midi controller (Alesis QX25) to work in MC8 Pro. It works fine in MC7 Pro, which is on the same Windows 10 PC. MC8 seems to recognize it because I get a message about the number of controllers has changed when I plug or unplug it. I have tried midi reset, but that did...

Export options

My voicemail system only supports 8-bit mono files. Can I record in Mixcraft and export to this file type? If so, how? Thanks in advance.

Re: Submix and Output tracks

Thank you all for your time in effort in contributing to this thread. The bottom line is that I was fooled into thinking that the panning doesn't work on submix tracks, so I was looking for a solution using output tracks (which I now know I don't need to use). I posted that I may have left a plugin ...

Re: Submix and Output tracks

I have been using a plugin to check my mixes in mono. Maybe I left it in mono when setting up panning on my submixes, so I was fooled to think that it wasn't working properly. I will check when I get home.

Re: Submix and Output tracks

Or very best and most flexible solution - allow routing to main mix from output track and enable an extra level of submixing. This would be great, but someone else said that you can't route output tracks to the main mix. So, how would you do this? I suppose one method would be to render each output...

Submix and Output tracks

Need some clarification on my workflow. First, here is my understanding of the different track types. Please correct me if I am mistaken.... When grouping individual tracks to a submix track, the submix track is routed to the master fader where additional effects can be applied (EQ or something). In...
