Unix?

I know Mixcraft 7 is designed for Windows, but will it run on a Unix-based set up?
Just curious. I love Windows for what it is, but I'm just wondering because somebody has to ask these things.

:lol:

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

I began reading the thread but didn't see this, so if I missed it, sorry:

How about a basic operating system designed just for Mixcraft so we can completely do away with Windows?

Re: Totally new to PC recording..sort of...

I decided I am going to wait a few weeks to buy, I think. I am now considering a Rackmount case. That way I can rack all this stuff. Right now I am at $998 with the following buying everything from New Egg, and I upped the ante to 64Gigs of RAM. Intel Quadcore i7 4 x 4.0Ghz Kingston HyperX Fury 4 x ...

Re: Totally new to PC recording..sort of...

That should be a hotrod. Especially compared to those of us still in the dual core world! To clarify my earlier statement, though I admit I don't fully understand the implications: "Not all i5's are created equal" (This could also apply to some i7's) As of a few years ago, it was my understanding t...

Re: Totally new to PC recording..sort of...

Mick,
Thank you!
That helps immensely.

I'm pricing out a new PC build using a Core i5 6600K CPU (4x3.5Ghz), an Asus H170 Pro motherboard, a 120Gig SSD (plus a 1TB Regular drive for the audio files) and 32Gigs of RAM.

I was trying to keep a new PC under $500 but I really couldn't do it.

Tim

Re: Totally new to PC recording..sort of...

Here's the thing. Once I set this up, the system doesn't need to grow. I'll probably NEVER use more than 24 Audio tracks... actually, maybe never more than 16 unless I start putting individual drums on their own tracks.... heck for playing out live, I built a 4' long Microphone Y-cable, and began wi...

Totally new to PC recording..sort of...

Years ago I picked up a few recording classes at the local Community College. We're talking late 80's... About 5 of us took the courses. They had a studio 16-track 2" Ampex, 12 Neumann mic's, a few EV RE20's and PL20's, a few Sennheiser condensers, etc. Good stuff from the 70's, an EMT reverb, Event...

Re: How do I import midi drum sounds (samples)?

Man, I feel sorry for you... vacationing in Jax. LOL :lol: No, seriously it's not THAT bad. I'm 47 and I've lived here most of the last 36 years. The Sonor kit I have is pieced together from "castoffs" from the Force series. (I picked up the initial kit 10",12",13", 16" toms and a 22" kick for $100....

Re: How do I import midi drum sounds (samples)?

My most common method has been to program a basic track of the core elements, (kick, snare and hat for example) then later filling it out with toms and cymbals, etc for example. And I can tweak velocities etc to taste. And the real flexibility lies in that you can edit the MIDI notes or data, or ch...
