Re: Melodyne

When I enable Melodyne on a track, I have a choice between "Melodyne", and "Melodyne VST". Are they the same? It also crashes quite a bit on my system Hi, Do you have Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio? Are you using the integrated Melodyne Essentials on the Sound tab? Do you have Mixcraft 8.0 build 373? Greg Y...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Ok, discovered something new. Never work on something for hours, then post when done......wait until the next day, then listen again, because chances are, you don't want anyone hearing that. I just listened to it again, after seeing your comments and, bleh. It's like every time I go back to an earli...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Ok, I updated Blues Ballad. I noticed at a couple of points, almost a skip sound. I heard it while mixing, but, it didn't sound like that. I've moved on a bit, included some panning, used sub tracks, and put in a couple of key changes. I'm just hoping someone notices some improvement, even if I did ...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

OK, I went back a re-read some of the thread to see where we might pick back up, and it occurred to me I missed a cue for an important tip on "effects" that may have answered part of one of your early questions Brewsir. Similar to the loops being loud, the vast majority of effects plug ins do a dir...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking Mixcraft. But I wont be dishonest either. I agree with others that suggest the library arrangement needs some improvement . And having used (or tried to use) several other DAW's, there's no contest as to overall usability. But then, full disclosure, I am not a u...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Back, with more questions. The loops I'm using have several "Dry" guitar parts. I assumed it means, "no effects, feel free to add your own". 2 things, 1.Even though it's the same clean guitar, with the same sound, loop 15, sounds very different, than loop 14, on the same track, with the same effects...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

OK, now we are really off on a new tangent! (And let the record show I suggested starting off by getting your feet wet a little at a time and you dove in the deep end here!) :lol: Oh sure, claim innocence after sending me links to song packs that, "I might like". :P My own experience leads me to su...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Ok, well, at least I can filter things using the search bar. So, I can filter where I just have 120C, or 150E etc., or whatever subset I want. I guess that might be a suggestion from someone, however, drums are filtered out, because they're not tagged the same way. :x

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Ok, now I'm frustrated. I purchased a couple of loop packs, and, what an unwieldy bitch they are. I've GOT to be able to organize this mess, I hope I did something wrong, and it's easily corrected. So, I download the packs, go into MC and import the new loops. 1 pack in particular gave me 3 folders ...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Maybe I didn't explain another meter concept well enough there. The dancing green bars are attempting to show "live" or instant data. But ballistics vary between meters so don't expect a perfect match. If so equipped, the little dancing white peak bars are attempting to show a short term average to...

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

Was wondering if someone could explain this to me. According to Span, I'm in good shape, according to MixCraft's meter, I'm hot?

Re: New to Mixcraft Help an old guy out

OK, no questions on anything so far, and I see no one has downloaded the last two project files. Maybe its best to stick to the pretty little pictures. :lol: I was going to try to show some more very basic mixing of the project, then move on to some thoughts on mixing down. Any questions, input, su...
