Re: Question about Mixcraft v2.

I use v2 on a daily basis at work. I would love to upgrade to 5 or 6 at work but can't because the new interface is too much for the staff to handle. It would be neat to skin 6 with a v2 look so all would be well in radio land.

Both take about the same amount of time to complete, but when done, you have a fully functional clone indistinguishable from the original except for the zo...

The SFz player will play raw wav files (at least the version I have does). Use that as a plugin and select your wav as the sample.

This is where you get into spectral analysis and trying for flat curves, or flat for the genre. Voxengo Curve EQ can copy the eq curve of a recording that's similar to yours and apply it to your recording with often times good effect.
