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

I don't have the Octa-Capture, but I use a physical switch box to move inputs between different headphones. Works great, with no loss in audio quality. It's this one: https://www.amazon.com/STEREO-Manual-Speaker-selector-available/dp/B073GWCRP3/ref=sr_1_1 I get that you might not want to spend money...

Re: USing Korg M1 Legacy as VSTi

I don't have the Korg Legacy plugins, so this is just a wild guess/suggestion....

If it installs both the VST2 and VST3 versions, try both and see if they behave in the same way. Sometimes one is problematic (Either due to design or just a bug) but often the other version works as expected.

Re: Can anyone reccomend a Bass VST that works on Mixcraft 9?

I am looking for a VST to use for good bass guitar sounds on Mixcraft 9? Cant seem to get any to work.. When you say, "Cant seem to get any to work" do you mean "wasn't to your liking"? Or that you literally can't get them to work? If the latter, which bass instruments have you tried, and what exac...

Re: Mixing with Mike Sale and Free Membership

I can't vouch for the poster or the link, but Michael White is a well-respected engineer/producer (Youtube channel: Michael White). "Mixing with Mike" is his website, and it's the real deal. AFAIK, he uses mostly Pro Tools.

Are you using Mixcraft 9? Page 118 of the manual goes over assigning/using MIDI controllers.

Re: Mixcraft 6 to 9?

Quick question, once I download Melodyne, will I need internet connection every time I use it? Quick answer is no. :wink: You'll only need the internet when you activate it, and later to download periodic updates. (Just go to the library every few months and update everything, and you'll be fine).

Re: Sound Settings

Make sure you've installed the latest drivers for your audio interface.

Also, a good place to start is to do basic tweaks as outlined in the link below (Especially important is to disable any unnecessary tasks in startup):

Re: I've been away too long and Kontakt is speeding past

... On the other hand there are some libraries written in Kontakt 5 that won't work in Kontakt 6 (some of Kirk Hunter's stuff for instance). Yikes! That is not how it's supposed to work. I have tons of pre-K6 Kontakt libraries (that go back to K2), and they all work fine in K5. I took a quick look ...

Re: I've been away too long and Kontakt is speeding past

You should be fine for many years to come with Kontakt 5. The only libraries that may not work are those released after Kontakt 6's release (that take advantage of its newer features).

Bottom line, with Kontakt 5, you'll never lose any of the functionality that you have now.

Let's not assume the problem is with the 1st gen Focusrite. There is plenty of evidence that it works fine with Mixcraft.

Re: How to get my audio interface to work in mix craft?

If there are manufacturer-provided drivers for the device and you connected the device BEFORE installing driver package, that can mess things up to where it won't work even if you install the drivers after the fact. If that is the case, best to uninstall the device drivers, reboot, then start over: ...
