Re: Midi Controllers that deserve a mention for Mixcraft 9 users?

Has anyone used the Behringer x touch one with MC 9 Pro Studio. Many thanks in advance. I really like the looks of those X Touch controllers, been wondering myself since they came out because I own various daws and cool how they give you different daw assignment plates with it! Haven't tried it or ...

Re: Midi Controllers that deserve a mention for Mixcraft 9 users?

Nektar LX49 seem to be my controler of choice as well. The keyboard, PADs, sliders etc seem to fit my style of making music in the EDM genre. This is what Nektar says about integration with Mixcraft: "Impact LX and LX+ controllers can be used as a simple control surface in Mixcraft by Acoustica wit...

Re: What are your top 3 feature requests for Mixcraft 9?

My first time using upgraded Mixcraft 9 on a mixing/mastering colab, getting reacquainted with it still, but here are some initial ideas: -Folders for track groups and project organizing! I looked in manual, no find. Did I miss it? -Ability to filter just Acoustica instruments and Fx for use/options...

Estonian? Like, from Estonia? Familiar with Ott Tanak by chance?
Hah! Not much into Motorsports but when an Esto becomes renowned, we all know! LOL

Re: Upgraded to MX9 (from MX6) but files won't play?

I think I recently ran into a similar hicuup in M9 myself. If I recall correctly, there was a difference between proper load and play if I clicked on a song file from File Explorer (like you mentioned from documents folder), or using the "Browse" button within Mixcraft and navigating to same song fi...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

It may work fine. Or it may not be "enough" This would depend on your specific use. If I were shopping for a system at this point I would strongly prefer a quad core at minimum. And I would also shy away from the "all in one" format for this application, as mentioned. They are really cool for commo...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

Hi, More cores is generally better. The system requirements for some big plugins recommend at least a quad core computer. As to why it ran well on your 2 core computer, it's hard to say, because there are too many variables involved, like amount of RAM, the particular plugins you were running, hard...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

Can't really go into core uses and such but I can say that your i5 is an older one and will face limitations with any daw. I have an i7-4750 with 12gb ram and get jacked up when opening more than one vsti open with a few plugins. Processors have come a long way in just the last couple of years. M T...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

Funny you say that about ram increase and SSD installed..... Thats what started this whole thing in talking to my Bro, lol. Got me focused on hardware and cost to gain deals. Then a few days later I saw that HP on sale at Costco with 2 yr warranty and no questions asked returns to at least 90 days. ...

Midi Controllers that deserve a mention for Mixcraft 9 users?

I've been toying with idea of changing out my old but cool, M-Audio Axiom Air mini 32 keyboard controller for a more current and possibly better suited setup for my newly upgraded MIxcraft 9 Pro Studio. I'd like to inform as many readers of a find I came across. Nektar Impact LX/LX+ has a driver ava...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

No problem! I like the idea of all-in-ones but they become pretty obsolete pretty quickly. Save your $$$ for now and get your bro to build you a beast when you're ready :) You are right about the obsolete thing, I should know because I keep buying reman older imacs and have the same problem, lol.

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

Ive decided to hold off on the all in one deal going. It doesn't seem clear enough the right direction without getting it home to test it. Honestly don't want to go thru possibly taking it back at the moment. Maybe I'll wait for the Ryzen 5 16gb one to go on sale in future, or just consider another ...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

I really appreciate all your comments. I can tell what I'm doing is trying to justify getting a much newer and prettier workstation for my learning and getting feet wet over next few years... catching up for lost years I've dragged my toes. I also was trying to keep it simple in questions, but my da...

Re: Hardware question, 2 cores vs 4 cores in Mixcraft 9 design

Update:

Just found out my i5 is a 2014 chip, 4 core/4 thread version.

The new AMD system considering is 2020 chip, 2 core/4 thread version if that makes any difference in music and Mixcraft processing.
