Yes, including stock drums and sax samples and some loop cloud samples.

Re: Mixcraft for live performances?

I have been considering this as well. It was fast and simple to set up a two controller (CH1/CH2) system and implement transposed splits and layers in Mixcraft. Also easy to implement patch mutes with pads and patch volume controllers in midi learn mode. Being retired I was in multiple bands (Before...

Re: Can't Get Different Midi Voices in Different Tracks

I like to run a sniffer/monitor like 'midi-ox' to see what is really going on the bus. I had to write my own midi driver for an old synth for windows because it was mostly sys-ex back in the old wild-west days of midi. Standardization is better these days.

Re: Can't Get Different Midi Voices in Different Tracks

I am not sure how much you know....Midi transmit data is usually just Note ON, Note OFF and velocity (key strike data). Your keyboard can probably transmit the data you are generating (by playing) on one midi channel (for example 1 or 2 or 3 .....or 16) to Mixcraft. Each Mixcraft track can transmit ...

Re: PRO TOOLS LAST!

Looks like they supply a bunch of vst's and samples with PT Lite. Xpand2 is a fine instrument. FL Studio looks slick but is fairly frustrating to me and I have been avoiding all the free updates. I do use FL Studio vst's from Mixcraft but they don't make doing that easy, some extra activation steps....

Re: midi controller

I like having assignable knobs (and pads for performance mode) on my controller because I use many synthesizer plugins and having control over a just few parameters (filter cutoffs, resonance, fine tuning.....) can make a huge difference. Yeah the Nektar Impact LX25 looks great. The other thing is a...

Re: Converting audio to MIDI?

I converted 10 songs with this software...some came out really well...some busier ones, not so much but still usable after editing work. Free trial... so you will know

Re: Can I record midi routed from another channel?

I would like to use mixcraft for live gigs. The idea is to assign a drum pad on my controller to each channel's mute and an associated fader (or knob) to each channel's volume. Than I can easily "multi"/combi" or "split" my keyboard on the fly. If I 'link' channels, the volume control is linked as w...

Re: Can I record midi routed from another channel?

I just came across this short video from the Fans of Mixcraft channel that might be a solution. He uses a plugin called LoopBe1 to record midi from a chord generation plugin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJ9Mwktrfj0 Link to the plugin: https://www.nerds.de/en/loopbe1.html Hey Thanks, I will give...

Re: Can I record midi routed from another channel?

Hi, There's no option to do that. But you can direct MIDI from one of those kind of instruments directly into another virtual instrument by putting them both on the same track. (Change Instrument > Show Details > Select Synth). People request a feature that would allow you to record the MIDI output...

Re: Can I record midi routed from another channel?

I also use scaler2 and chordjam and believe me that even though I do play piano, those tools provide me with so much value and instant realization of Western music theory. And Mixcraft is easy on my laptop so these heavy duty VSTs play nice.
