How to correct: piano roll editing changes pedal to off

In mixcraft 8 I'm using Kontact and Cinepiano for a piano piece that has the pedal down most of the time. After making a piano roll edit (not involving the pedal) the pedal is turned off but if I do a playback from the beginning the pedal is turned back on again sometimes at the edit spot. How do I ...

violin pulses depending on player

Using mixcraft 8 I created a piece that includes a violin. Originally I used the acoustica instruments violin included with mixcraft but that resulted in an unrealistic and poorly controlled sound that pulses instead of being legato. So I substituted Cinestrings Solo, which produces a high quality v...

Re: Largo Ostinato

As of this writing this board says there have been @250 views of my post, 3 replies. My initial post only includes a link to my piece on soundcloud (and therefore anyone listening to the piece should be included within the soundcloud statistics). Soundcloud says my piece has been listened to 16 time...

Re: Maybe This Time - Original music by Neil G.

Neil, please take my comment as a suggestion for improvement rather than as an "odd negative comment". It is completely alright with me that you created it for your specific purpose. I agree that we all shouldn't take ourselves or our music too seriously. I encourage you to keep creating and be true...

Re: Had Matter

I liked it! How did you make it - live instruments, virtual, performance feature in mixcraft? Why did you move from ableton?

Re: Maybe This Time - Original music by Neil G.

I think your piece would be improved with a contrasting musical idea or metamorphosis of the idea you have. How about a B section? The slight variations on the melody and arrangement aren't enough to keep my interest.

Largo Ostinato

https://soundcloud.com/user-659082399-303084762/largo-ostinato This piece is my original composition. I used mixcraft 8 virtual instruments to create this. I tried to get the vibrato right by carefully controlling velocity on each note. For some unexplained reason, some speaker/player combinations ...

Re: mixing down Not easy in Mixcraft 6

I found a solution: In windows I changed the "default sample rate and bit depth when running in shared mode" by right clicking the speaker, right clicking the playback speakers, going to properties and changing the selection from a drop down menu. Pretty obscure stuff. Neither windows or mixcraft ga...

My project is all virtual instruments. I am having major problems with mixing down. I have only been able to mix down to mp3 once and that mp3 had major changes to pitch and timber. Besides that I tried changing all the settings for bit rate and hz and none produced a playable file on Windows Media ...
