Re: Not all audio Daws sound the same ...

This is a topic where science may help. A few years ago, I generated two WAV audio files at 44.1 kHz sample rate using Audacity. I used these audio files to assess various equalizer VSTs in Mixcraft. The audio files are: 1. White noise 2 A series of sine tones at 50, 100, 200, 400, 600, 800, 1000, 2...

Re: Potential problem with instrument GUIs in version 415

I downloaded and tested Build 418.

All GUIs that I tested work perfectly. It seems that the problem is fixed.

Thanks to the Acoustica team for their persistence. I'm sure this bug was frustrating for them.

Re: Potential problem with instrument GUIs in version 415

I have good news and bad news. I downloaded Build 417 and tested GUIs with the sidechain window. They now work perfectly! However, I decided to check regular GUIs to see if perhaps all of the fussing around had an effect where before none was noted. Unfortunately, this is the case as shown in the fi...

Re: Potential problem with instrument GUIs in version 415

I downloaded and tried out Build 416. The two problems noted in my original post: 1. GUI has bottom cut off upon opening first time 2. GUI has more and more of the bottom cutoff on subsequent openings Have been fixed. This is very good news. However, there is still a problem. Now, when the GUI is cl...

Potential problem with instrument GUIs in version 415

I just updated to Mixcraft 8.1 version 415. I have noticed that the GUIs of two VSTs have unwanted effects from this update. Please see the graphic below. Both of the VSTs are AIR products, Hybrid and XPand!2. The addition of the sidechain window at the top, not seen in earlier versions of Mixcraft ...

Re: Cthulhu

Perhaps I can clarify musicuser99's problem. When using an arpeggiator with Mixcraft, the arpeggiator VST is placed before the instrument VST in the Instruments List. Mixcraft recognizes the arpeggiator VST for what it is and configures the MIDI routing so that the MIDI data routes serially first to...

Re: Recording internal MIDI from an Arpeggiator

You can try midiMonitor as suggested in my post on Tips and Tricks.

https://forums.acoustica.com/bbs/viewto ... 12&t=23429

Its a two step process, but I have not noted delays such as those present in loop back approaches.

Alternative Method for Recording MIDI Data from an Arpeggiator

Typically, when the subject of recording MIDI from an arpeggiator or chord generator comes up, the recommendation is to use LoopBE or LoopMIDI to route the MIDI data generated on the track with an arpeggiator or chord generator to a second track of Mixcraft where it is recorded. An alternative is to...

Re: Dead Duck Software Free FX and Instruments

I have been reviewing the DD Compressor as it is the only native sidechaining compressor I have found that is both free and available in 32 and 64 bit VSTs. I have found the following: a. Works in Mixcraft 32 bit and 64 bit versions, build 405. b. Attack times from 0.1 msec to 200 msec c. Release ti...

Re: Record MIDI Arpeggiator Output to another Channel

That seems easy, but it isn’t . . . . at least it wasn't for me. I downloaded and installed LoopBe1 and LoopMIDI and encountered MIDI feedback that would mute the MIDI port. After around an hour of fussing, I finally figured out how to break the feedback loop. For the few users that have an interest...

Re: Record MIDI Arpeggiator Output to another Channel

I tried the method suggested by Anorax and could not record to another MIDI track. I created a new project with two virtual instrument tracks set up as shown below. The desired routing of MIDI from Track 1 was that the arpeggiator output would route to Track 2 where it could be recorded. The actual ...

Re: VIELKLANG 2CM

Vielklang is to be loaded as an instrument on an instrument track. It opens an audio file on your drive and pitch corrects or harmonizes the audio in synch with the music on other tracks of Mixcraft. I tried to use Vielklang 2CM in the past (about a year ago) and found that it crashed Mixcraft 7 if ...

Re: How to cheaply incorporate dithering in Mixcraft

Thanks Greg for your generous offer. However, I have yet to assuredly detect quantization artifacts in my music at normal or elevated volumes. I have put this down to lack of experience with a wide range of music as I have started creating music only in the last year and a half, or due the modest na...
