Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

Yes, both drives are in the laptop. I did have a problem with my secondary drive (it kept blue screening the computer, and the computer was at the point where it was saying the drive was imminently about to fail), so I had IT swap in a new one. I haven't had a chance to test the upgrade with Mixcraf...

Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

Hi, If you use 32-bit Mixcraft, do the performance issues go away? In other words, maybe the 32-bit plugins in 64-bit Mixcraft aren't the issue. Greg I can't say that they are. Can I install 32 bit and 64 bit at the same time? (not run at the same time, clearly) Are projects cross-compatible? :( th...

Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

P.S. I found this link to the 40 top VST's of 2014, many of which have 64 bit versions, and, interestingly enough, I was already using many of the tools listed :)

Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

Well, yes, I am running into performance issues. It gets very disconcerting when, while recording, it looks like the system has stopped, like somehow I've accidentally hit the space bar or something, only to realize that it's just a graphics glitch, and the system was recording the whole time and ev...

Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

Currently, an HP Z-Book 15 laptop with 16 GB Ram, 700 GB fast secondary hard drive (where I store recordings), 250 GB C hard drive (not sure what speeds the disks are), Intel i7-4800MQ @ 2.70 GHz, Win7 Pro. Computer is rated at 7.0 so far. I haven't done much to optimize it.

Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

And why is my acoustic guitar recording sounding flat, I'm expecting a little more sustain on the chords, but they tend to roll off quickly. How do I increase the sustain to get a little more body in the sound? Compression? What else? Mic position? I've moved it around without really getting what I'...

Re: Making the jump to 64 bit

And as a side note, what VST's do you all use? I'm still new to all this mixing and mastering.

What I know a little about (but not much) Reverb, EQ, Compression, delay for adjusting sound (not including typical guitar effects as well).

Making the jump to 64 bit

Sooo.... We've now made the jump to 64 bit processing... Which means all my old 32 bit VST's are being put in wrappers, and every instance takes up memory, even if I use the same VST on different tracks I believe. In the interest of being more efficient (hopefully), I just went through all my VST's,...

Re: Acoustic Guitar bleed to Microphone

Is there a problem with bleed? I use a Focusrite 6i6, so I get 4 inputs. I usually mic the guitar with 2 mics and my vocals in one, and then take a direct line from the guitar (there are 4 inputs in the 6i6 2 preamped and 2 line ins (plus a stereo sp/dif in and a MIDI input). Or instead of 2 mics on...

Re: Focusrite 2i4 revisited...

Sorry I'm late to the party, but I was going to suggest exactly that, especially if you are using condenser mics. The 6i6 has a power cord, and will be much more reliable powering mics needing phantom power. Plus it's got more inputs and outputs. And I got mine last year at Guitar Center for $175 on...

Re: Build 259 is the current testing build

I was just wondering if there was a list of ALL the changes. The emails say they have a list of some of the changes. Not a big deal, just wondering.

Is there a full list of fixes and what's new for 259?

Interesting, I saw the progress bar in 258 as well.

Re: Build 258 - Anyone else see increase in mixdown time?

Those are all good suggestions. I'm imagining the issue was the (large?) number of 32 bit effects I am using with 64 bit Mixcraft. I count 12 in the task manager. There must have been something going on with my computer at the time. It's been rebooted several times since then. I just mixed it down a...

Build 258 - Anyone else see increase in mixdown time?

Hi, Is anyone else seeing a huge increase in mixdown to mp3 time? This is the first time I've mixed down this particular song. I notice that I'm using 12 32-bit effects on the 4 tracks in the song, so maybe that's the problem, and this song would always have been slow to mix. But, based on my previo...
