Re: Dual display monitors

Just to be clear, your monitor has one unused HDMI input (TWO HDMI inputs total), correct? You could add a PCIe graphics card with an HDMI output to the Dell. (Or add a card with two HDMI outs and use those ports exclusively). Alternatively, just buy a different model monitor, with a DisplayPort inp...

Re: How to get the new build 468

Did you read the instructions in Greg's link? You can download the full v468 installer from your acoustica account.

You "should" be able to install it over your existing program. If it doesn't work, just do an uninstall, then install the new build.

Re: Vocal Mic Needed

Do you have a proper audio interface with XLR inputs? If not, then your options are limited and you'll probably have to get a USB microphone. With an audio interface, you can use a more professional microphone. I strongly recommend you do some research on microphone types/Buying your first microphon...

Re: Digital "tic" noise when first playing effects

Hm, can't say I've heard this one before...

What is your audio interface? Installed latest firmware/drivers?

Using ASIO?

Re: Acronis ROCKS

..... The one I settled on is Macrium Reflect . It backups and restores system images flawlessly and, oh yeah, it's FREE.... I just want to add that, whatever you use, you should verify that a backup solution actually works (assuming you have a desktop and capability to temporarily swap out the boo...

Re: Acronis ROCKS

Any reliable Backup imaging software is great (and strongly recommended) for every PC user. I'd say it's easily the most indispensable software on my system. In fact, I've been relying on software imaging apps for a longtime (about 20 years). I started with Norton Ghost, moved to Acronis True Image....

Re: How can I set my octa capture so that I either hear on my headphone or my studio speakers?

thank you, but then this can switch between 3.5mm headphones/speakers. But how can I switch between yamaha hs monitors connected to octacapture and my headphone attached again to my octacapture? thank you No. You would need to have the monitors and headphones connected to the switch/controller box....

Re: Toneboosters

I own many of the current (v4) TB plugins, so don't use the MC-bundled ones. My understanding is that the MC-ones are a previous version (v3?) from TB.

In any case, TB-plugs are excellent, current version or not.

Re: Playback issues with Mixcraft 9

... Other tracks don't seem to have this problem so I wonder if it could be something to do with the track...corrupt? and if so, is there a way of fixing it? Two possibilities: 1) Some background task is starting at a time coinciding with bar 29 and causing glitches, or 2) A corrupt track (IMO, the...

ASIO was selected and I got no sound at all.
This is odd. What's your audio interface/ sound card?

Re: Midi Lag

Also, newer PCs are almost exclusively USB3 ports, and depending on the chipset on the hub, may not be 100% backwards compatible with older USB2 devices.

If your audio interface has MIDI IN/OUT ports, use those connections to your keyboard instead of USB.

Re: Is it possible to go back to previous OS build in MixCraft?

... I’m trying to isolate an issue I’m having with a VST, and want to see if the previous OS fixes it. Do you really mean previous O.S. (like Windows 7/8 instead of Win 10)? Or previous build of Mixcraft ? Both are possible; but the former would require wiping your hard drive and installing Win 7/8...

Re: Latency with MC9 and Tascam US16x08

Make sure you've downloaded/installed the latest drivers for your interface from Tascam. After the install, reboot your system.

Then follow this video guide for setting up in Mixcraft:

Re: POWER USAGE WINDOWS 10

If you haven't already, press CTL-ALT-DEL - click Task Manager - Startup tab. You will see a list of all tasks running at startup.

Disable every task you don't recognize (Be aggressive. None of these are system-critical, and can be easily re-enabled). Restart your system.
