MX9 initial feedback

So initial feedback. a. New GUI / Colour scheme seems really only a minor update compared with the old one. It's still looking pretty long in the tooth compared to alternatives which are much easier on the eye. b. The waveform displays - just seems absolutely pointless - waste of space and nodoubt e...

Re: Amplitube 4 VST3 issues

No, the PC is very definitely running 64 bit windows, so its not that. Tried a WAV mixdown and that failed too. Have removed all of the VST3 from the project and it all seems fine now.

Amplitube 4 VST3 issues

Anyone had any problems with Mixcraft 8 and Amplitube 4. MX8 keeps producing white noise on playback, and can't seem to write an MP3. The log file is littered with calls to the Amplitube 4 VST3 file and long delays. I've gone back to the old VST and it seems to be behaving itself but I have not seem...

The Glow - instrumental track

Friends, your constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated! My daughter came home from her dance & singing lesson last week a little upset because the song which she had been rehearsing for her upcoming recital was not available as a backing track, and her teacher was struggling to find a cop...

Re: Automation of expression for multi timbrel VSTs

Yes, it's predominantly trying to minimise the pause when starting to play if I have 10 - 12 instances of the Aria player open, vs 1 instance, and as you say, the visual mess. Plus using a single version of the Aria mixer / reverb and trying to keep track of it all...... perhaps I have to go with a ...

Automation of expression for multi timbrel VSTs

Hi all, Struggling a little with Garritan Personal Orchestra in Mixcraft 8.1. I'm still learning to use the software, but a lot of tutorials for making realistic sounding strings suggest extensive use of expression and modwheel. I am struggling to reconcile this with having to use multiple lanes to ...

Zoom R8 Interface issues

Hi All, recently got a Zoom R8 for use as a audio interface. Having some issues though and wonder if anyone can help. I have installed the drivers and configured the unit as an interface, and the unit works well as a control surface. However I cannot get it to work as an audio interface in Asio mode...

Re: how to make my voice sound professional?

Mark makes some excellent points, but I would add that it can sometimes help to consider other elements of the mix, and their relative position and pan. I usually pan guitars, bass, drums etc slightly off centre - not excessively so and in a balanced manner - and this has the effect of widening the ...

Optimising performance in the Win 10 / Mixcraft 7.5 world

Apologies if this has been dealt with elsewhere, but I'm perplexed as to whether I should be setting up audio drivers differently now that Mixcraft has been optimised for Windows 10's audio capabilities. I have a Windows 10 machine with an i7 and 16 Gb of memory, and the audio interface is a Focusri...

Re: Questions on EZDrummer 1 to 2 upgrade

Mark, as far as I recall I just installed EZD2 and removed EZD1. The original libraries which were supplied with EZD1 remained accessible and I didn't notice any difference whatsoever in terms of ongoing use within Mixcraft.

Re: Audio interface

I would recommend to Focusrite users that they check out the beta drivers. The current drivers for the 2i2 are pretty poor in my opinion, a shame because the hardware is good. Interesting the discussion about class a/B preamp design, but for an effective audio interface the software is as important ...

Re: New questions on a bunch of stuff

Martin, I might be being a bit dim here, buts it's not clear what you want. I'm pretty sure that when I've wanted to download the mixcraft installation files again, I have either emailed support or used the form on the website to get the links and licence keys sent out again. If you look for lost co...

Re: Funeral For A Friend Elton John Cover

My favourite Elton John song. Very nice piano - have you thought about trying to find a nice ARP patch and adding a bit of extra keyboard a la the Elton John version? I believe the original used a multitracked ARP 2500, might be able to get a similar sound out of one of the free ARP VSTs available.

Re: On the Beach ... new original composition

Hi Rick, the sample was taken from "On the Beach", the 1959 movie of the Neville Shute book. I thought it worked well, and I'm glad you did too. Thanks for your comments.

Hi Rick, don't know, the link seems to work for me? Cache problem possibly?
