Re: computer for just running mixcraft 9

then on the other hand, my highly dated computer (see spec in my signature) easily handles my largest project to date. 68 tracks (none frozen), most with FX and automation. Also a technophobe, so the Techy Gods must be with me :mrgreen: That's pretty good going Trev. 8) Were they mainly audio track...

Re: computer for just running mixcraft 9

Talk about coincidence! I just sent an enquiry about the very same thing today to an IT specialist about building me a bespoke PC specifically just for music production. My current setup does the job but I want to future-proof as far as is possible in the PC game and upgrade a little. It all depends...

Re: Oswaldo Von Schnoobenstein and Mixcraft 9.

Nice! More up-tempo than usual. Is the lead patch from the Montage or DeepMind? I'm thinking I may have to treat myself to the Montage 7 in white.

Also waiting for Minions of Mirth pt. II? :)

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

Some suggestions for v.10 please: 1. The ability to edit the clip titles directly in the Main Clip Grid. Even though you can edit the titles in the Track List, once you've recorded in that track, you can't change the titles in the Main Clip Grid, which can be annoying at times....or at least when yo...

Song #12 - StormFront

Primarily based on EastWest, Roland and BBC Orchestral libraries, this one was a real challenge to put together. I may come back to it at a later date but I will persevere in my quest to replicate as many musical styles as I can. Anyway, here it is... https://soundcloud.com/user-162916983/stormfront

Working on one song in separate MX9 projects.

I'm currently working on a song which is based heavily on the EastWest Orchestral libraries. They recently updated them making the sample files even more bigger and I think my PC is now beginning to buckle under the weight with some playback issues. I'm thinking I'm going to have to split into two s...

Re: Sorry - 32 bit plugin problems

If they are .dll files, you can usually just copy the files straight to your VST folder in the Program Files (x86) directory. Others you have to do a full install from a .exe application file.

Could that be part of your problem?

Re: Computer

Yeah it's really the other VSTs and apps you plan to use. Mixcraft is fine for my PC but my EastWest ComposerCloud libraries are a real beast to accommodate. They've just upgraded so I now need to get bigger SSDs just to store the new sample libraries.

Re: Spitfire's BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover VST

If it helps, my BBC Symphony Orchestra 64-bit is located in Program Files/VstPlugins. There is also a 32-bit version installed in Program Files (x86)/VSTPlugins but I've disabled that one.

Re: Video Rendering - Resolved.

Cheers. It's not in my sig but I have a nVidia Quadro K1200 4GB card installed as well. When mixing down, It seems to alternate between a very long render and a quick one for some reason.

The final render completed fine in about 40 mins, which I can live with.

Re: Video Rendering

Thanks Greg. I'm doing another render and it's sitting at 65% after about 30 mins approx so yesterday must have been a glitch. I didn't see the Edit Details option so I'll check it out when it's finished.

Video Rendering - Resolved

Hi all Apologies if covered before. I did do a quick search but didn't find anything relevant. Basically I've completed my first video project and started the mixdown to mp4 late last night (well early hours tbh). I slowly realised that it was going to take a while so just went off to bed. However, ...

Can't believe it's been nearly 5 months since doing anything but finally got round to updating an old track.

Re: Would like some VSTs to play with similar sounds (song reference)

Get a copy of Computer Music and you'll get the Computer Music Plugin Suite with nearly 100 instruments, effects and utilities. Some great stuff in there. A good place to start I reckon.
