Re: Transferring Pianissimo to Another Drive

Thanks. The problematic drive had all my program files and it’s been some time since I did a full cleanup of my PC so I just decided to reformat and reinstall everything. Long process but we’ll worth it as my 6 year old PC is humming smoothly again.

Re: 4K TV as display?

Thanks. Your experience confirms my hunch that a regular 4K TV, which has denser pixels would work.

I don’t watch movies nor play hi-res video games so those very fast refresh rates which, I assume, make monitors cost more would not hold any advantage for me.

4K TV as display?

I would like to display more info on my screen and am considering upgrading to a larger(43”) 4K TV, with the corresponding video card upgrade in my Windows PC. Would a TV (instead of a monitor) be good enough to work with? TVs are a lot cheaper than monitors. Would 4K allow me to see more info? For ...

Transferring Pianissimo to Another Drive

I installed Pianissimo into Drive F (my designated program disc). But this drive started exhibiting problems so I plan to transfer Pianissimo into another drive. To this neatly, I planned to uninstall Pianissimo then reinstall into the new drive. But uninstalling pianissimo displays a red window lau...

Re: Komplete Kontrol - (as a plugin in Mixcraft)

Solved it. Ran Native Access to find out which folder I installed the VST files of Komplete Kontrol then entered that folder in the VST folders list in Preferences.

Re: Komplete Kontrol - (as a plugin in Mixcraft)

I am just starting to use my Komplete Kontrol S88 and I'm encountering the same problem. May I know if a solution has been found?

Re: Komplete Kontrol S88 transport controls solution

Thank you very much! Just got my S88 today. After installing all the software, your post helped me run this wonderful keyboard as it should on transport controls. I am now experiencing the joy you must have gone through some years back.

Re: pressing record turns volume down

Thanks so much for this workaround! I have also been having this problem with Garritan VSTs and was told by Acoustica to raise it with Garritan who told me vice versa. https://forums.acoustica.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=27068&p=139893#p139893 Hope your discovery will lead the Mixcraft developers to a r...

Re: Volume Issue

Thanks, so much! I got tired of raising this issue between Mixcraft and Garritan that I just resorted to training myself to keep touching the modwheel. I also downloaded the free version of Spitfire and never noticed this anomaly; probably because I now have the ha it of nudging the modwheel. Hope t...

Oxygen 88

I am considering M-Audio's Oxygen 88 (an old model) as a keyboard for MIxcraft 9. I like a hammer action keyboard with full 88 keys and this discontinued model comes cheap nowadays. Does anyone have any experience with this keyboard in Mixcraft? Will all its buttons, knobs, sliders, etc work? Thanks.

Re: Volume Issue

Yes. MX7 does not have the preference to reset modwheel when playback ends. Tried it again just a minute ago. I still have MX7 installed in my PC. This is how I tested: I made one clip using Garritan's French Horn with a scale: do-re-mi...do-ti-la...do. While playing back, I moved the modwheel a few...

Re: Volume Issue

Thanks, cactus-head. I should really read the manual more. I have put a mod-wheel value on all my clips as a workaround. Just so tedious. I understand that this “issue” falls in the void outside the scope of either Garritan or Acoustica. What I just find strange is that this problem does not occur i...

Re: Volume Issue

How about making the modwheel reset in Preferences work? I.e. if left unchecked, the modwheel value stays what it is as of last playback.

I think that’s what that option is supposed to do, right?

Re: Volume Issue

Just checking if Acoustica has found solution to this. I’ve been a Mixcraft user since v3 and, I recall I encountered this modwheel reset problem sometime in v5 or 6. When I raised it to Acoustica, I was told the next version got it solved. In v7, I never had this issue. Took a long break from music...

Re: Tips/plugins for midi sound quality? Orchestra

Sorry. Posted too soon. Managed to do it, though I dont know exactly how. I also downloaded and installed the Discover version of the BBC Orchestra but somehow cannot make it appear in MX9. I installed the SPitfire Audio app in the User/Admin folder. Am I messing up my folder locations? It installs ...
