Re: New Video: Explodin' Drum Tracks

Nice! As an alternative, here's an example. You could duplicate the first track, which has all the drum parts in it, delete the kick in the duplicate so that the only track with a kick is track 1. Then duplicate track 2 and delete the hihat in track 2 so that it's just the snare. Then delete the sna...

Re: Stacked VST Automation

You're probably right. I'm too ocd about certain things. Uncluttering a daw should not be one of them. Unless they come out with Mixcraft 10 (OCD Version). Now that would be something.

Re: Is it possible to have live FX on an instument as your record

Hi, welcome to the most helpful forum on the planet. Yes, just insert the ones you want in the track, beforehand. You should be able to hear them as you play. (Trevlyns beat me to it, but click monitor audio button) The beauty of it is that, if you change your mind, you can toggle it on/off, add/rem...

Re: CPU tips or tips on using less computer memory/CPU etc?

In some cases, it's a third-party thang. I have a backup drive and the program is constantly writing to it. Once I shut that down the CPU usage on Mixcraft goes waaaay down. I do run the risk of not having a mirror backup during that time, but the chances of MC crashing or freezing decrease with tha...

Re: Stacked VST Automation

Thanks guys. I'll tool around with it. I ended up duplicating in a separate track and letting the instruments play separately. But if prefer it in one track.

Stacked VST Automation

I want to be able to stack 2 instruments, but have the second voice only come in on the second bar, so that it layers progressively. Is there a way to automate the volume for that?

Re: CPU tips or tips on using less computer memory/CPU etc?

Here's the main way. https://youtu.be/XMXz81p0g28 Don't mind the age of the piece. The principles are timeless. But the submix idea is good. Even better is to use fx on send tracks. And I'm sure there's a litany of other ideas on this forum. Yes, you can stack instruments as well. But they can only ...

Re: Need some more info before trying Mixcraft

Howdy and welcome to the forum. I can't answer all your points, but I can say, as an Acid user, that there's no audio drawing tool. It took time to get used to the workflow, but I wouldn't let that be a deal breaker. I got away from using a lot of loops so it's not as big a need. But even in that ca...

Re: Pina Colada Song Story

I just love the fact that once upon a time, music was more organic and didn't have a formula. It sounded however it sounded and people sang however they sang.
