Re: Icons

Solved: I was running both 32 and 64-bit versions of Mixcraft Pro to compare performance. Decided to go with the 32-bit so uninstalled the 64-bit version. That's when it happened. I took it as a sign - getting the green "light". I swear I'm getting more done now....

No idea what I've done but all my .mx9 file icons have mysteriously changed colour from red to green. No stopping me now...

Re: A couple of questions

Thankyou both for your input - my system is definitely "marginal in that area" so vst2 it is from now on. As far as vst3 reliability It's odd that Steinberg's own products have the choice to toggle processing suspension - didn't they come up with vst3?

Re: A couple of questions

Thanks for your input Rolling Estonian - I've looked at the various advantages of VST3 and it's mostly complex stuff that I wouldn't need, but if performance can be improved by using VST3 I'm all for it, hence my question. If Mixcraft doesn't suspend processing then for me a it's no-brainer: use vst...

A couple of questions

1) Regarding VST 3, Cubase has the option to suspend plug-in processing when no audio signals are received. According to the manual "this can improve system performance noticeably". I can't find that option in Mixcraft so is it done automatically or not at all? 2) Is there any downside to having ins...

I'm currently using Fuse Audio Labs F-59 alongside good old Waves GTR3, which still sounds great to me

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

It's probably been mentioned already but just in case - I'd like to see 2 buttons: one to disable all plugins in the project and a second one to do what Cubase's "Constrain Delay Compensation" does to optimize real-time tracking.

F-59 issue

I've put all but one of my amp sims (S-Gear, GTR, Deluxe1 and TwinR) on a back burner and I'm happily using F-59 exclusively these days. One small niggle: when I save a track preset with F-59 (VST 2.4) and then reopen it the settings are remembered but the insert slot name isn't. The F-59 insert slo...

Re: Trouble with plugins

A shot in the dark but my advice, if you haven't done it already, would be to increase your audio buffer size, assuming you're not in the process of doing any live tracking. If everything's already recorded then the buffer size can be set really high - you've got nothing to lose. I have a rickety ol...

Re: Delay Loading Melodyne?

There's no need to uninstall Melodyne - just run the installer, choose modify and deselect everything. It won't appear in Mixcraft but the program will still be installed. When you do need Melodyne just run the installer again, choose modify and select VST3. Easy as that...

Re: No Melodyne

Yes I did activate v4 but the hard drive got formatted when I installed WIndows 7 so there will be no trace of that activation in the registry. I'll send a support request anyway - thanks for your help Greg.

Re: No Melodyne

Thanks Greg but I've tried every which way including the registration info that you provided. The serial number isn't accepted - I just get a message saying that I've upgraded to Melodyne 5, which is currently deactivated. There's no way of accessing anything to do with v4. Here's my email and the r...

Re: No Melodyne

While we're on the subject of Melodyne I just want to get this off my chest... I was on WIndows 10 and took the free upgrade to Melodyne 5 but my old PC, which was already suffering, couldn't cope so I went back to Windows 7 which always worked great but isn't compatible with Melodyne 5. So I instal...
