Re: Time For A New PC and New Mixcraft: Unable to Diagnose and New Problems Keep Popping Up

Hi, Did you ever send in your log file? You said that you'd figured out which folder it was in at one point, right? It might help if you didn't create so many new threads on this issue, so it would be easier to keep track of what has been suggested. Once again, if the sound is coming out of an unex...

Time For A New PC and New Mixcraft: Unable to Diagnose and New Problems Keep Popping Up

I don't want a nasty windows 10 system but I suppose I can upgrade to windows 7. That will probably end up being a pain in the ass. Please make a Mac version!! My next step will be to audition Mixcraft 8 on this PC. If it works then I will know that my version of Mixcraft is corrupting But then agai...

Re: Cakewalk Sonar Goes Belly Up

The truly sad news is that its such a low growth market that its not worth it going forward. Simple business realities. Electric guitar sales numbers aren't too encouraging either. Between the pressure created by the quality improvement of low cost producers and the marketing pressures of big box s...

Re: Microphone Survey

Sennheiser 835. Easily beats the over-hyped (but still good) SM58 IMO. No more boxiness :) Currently shopping for an LDC and ribbon. I've used a lot of 58's live. It seems no two are exactly alike. Some are hotter than others. In live settings they really punch out the vocals male or female. They g...

Re:

I'm using a peavey PVi2.Sounds great.No different from shure 58,or so I'm told,for about half the price.I use it for vocals and recording my own bongos,direct to mic in. 8) Me too and I like it better than my SM 58. It seem a bit crisper than the Shure 58. The 58 is very old and been to a lot of gi...

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

I would like to see a Mixcraft optimized USB interface. Find the best one out there and put the Acoustica name on it. I don't mind proprietary stuff. I'd like Acoustica to test several types of interfaces and may computers with Windows 10 running various processors e.g. AMD vs Intel etc. I'd like to...

Re: Computer Suggestions

You want to get as much processor and ram as you can afford, solid state drive too. Today you pretty much need 8gb ram, intel is my choice the older i7 are now less expensive. A good place to start is to look at gaming machines, specs are what you'll need for recording. Also depends on what type of...

Computer Suggestions

I've had some problems with sound and as nearly as I can determine it's a computer issue. My computer is getting long in the tooth. I have a Toshiba i3 running Windows 7. I stayed with Win 7 because of the issues with 8 and now 10. It looks like I'm going to have to bite the bullet and go with Windo...

Re: Sound Card Recomendations

Hi, I'm going to post those instructions again: What happens if you try this? 1. Highlight the following line and press Ctrl+C to copy it: %appdata%\Acoustica\Mixcraft\ 2. Press the Windows Key+R to pop up the Run box in Windows. 3. Click in the Run box and press Ctrl+V to paste in the line from ab...

Re: Sound Card Recomendations

I put in my user name and I get the same error message, I searched for Mixcraft-Log. I tried it in the search box and found nothing. I tried it in Run and found nothing. A search for appdata turned up nothing. I'm about to go out and throttle a software geek. :lol: Call me dumb but I would think th...

Boot Camp and Mac Your Thoughts

I'm having to serious issues with sound. Mixcraft is behaving badly but I don't know if it's Mixcraft, hardware, Windows or driver. It gets stranger and stranger. 1. Mixcraft is play sounds back through my computer speakers now but not my headphones but all other apps are now playing through my head...

Re: Sound Card Recomendations

This has to do with navigating windows explorer. You need to know how to navigate your system. Yes, where it says user name you need to substitute whatever name your computer account is called, Bob, Tom, Joe whatever. Also I forgot to mention that appdata is a hidden folder. When you're in windows ...

Re: Sound Card Recomendations

Greg's method works for me. Try searching manually for the file. On my system (Win 10 64-Bit) the path to the log file is: C:\Users\UserName\appdata\roaming\Acoustica\Mixcraft\Mixcraft-Log.txt. What's the name of the file? I have been searching for hours. What is supposed to happen if I find it? Wh...
