Re: HELP! =( Mixcraft does not receive MIDI output from VST

When you load MIDI Guitar 2 onto a track, are you loading it as an instrument (the keyboard icon with the tool tip "Change instrument ...") or as an effect plugin (the "Fx" icon with the tool tip "Edit Track Effects")? If you can only load MIDI Guitar 2 as an effect and not as an instrument, then yo...

Re: unable TO OPEN PLAYBACK DEVICE X 100

Do you have access to another DAW, notation program or media player that you can use to test your system? I doubt that this issue is specific to Mixcraft.

Re: Waves b360 plugin crazy high pitch sound

How long has it been since you updated your Waves plugins? I'm asking because a few months ago all of the "360" surround plugins disappeared during an update. I notified Waves, and they were restored in the next update a few weeks later. I'm mentioning this because it's possible that your problem wa...

Yes, its something that needs to be addressed in future versions.
This has been requested and the request acknowledged -- perhaps multiple times -- in the Suggestions thread.

Re: Guide Track?

Yeah, the thing about Scaler and other such "Utilities" is that you can't record the full midi output. ... You can, but only by routing the MIDI output of one track through an external loopback driver such as Loop MIDI, and back in to Mixcraft on another track. This takes some figuring out to get w...

Re: Ik Multimedia T-Racks 5

I tried both T-Racks 5.0.1 and 5.1 and got the same result. The VST2 plugins work and the VST3 plugins do not work. This is in 64-bit Mixcraft 8 Build 412 on Windows 7 Professional SP1. For me, ASIO, WaveRT exclusive, WaveRT non-exclusive, and Wave all give the same result. It looks to me like (1) t...

What is the advantage of this compared to putting loops on separate tracks, where they can have separate effects, aux sends, etc.?

Greg
So both developers are saying they have released their part of the fix, and suggesting that the other developer has not.

EDIT: same comment posted on both forums.

Re: Academic Question about gain peaking

so the more powerful a computer gets, the more headroom it can handle is that it? headroom - does it depend on computing power? If I understand your question correctly, then headroom doesn't depend on computing power but rather on the data type used to store sample values. 64-bit floating point num...

Re: Academic Question about gain peaking

I'm not sure what the terms "infinite loudness" and/or "infinite gain" even mean, but I'll assume that Scythe has an answer to that question. What programming language has a data type that can represent infinity with any precision? If there is such a thing, then it might be possible to design and pr...

Re: Howto capture streaming audio

RendCycle, do you want/need to record 5.1 surround? Or is the issue the inconvenience of having to switch back and forth between stereo and 5.1?

Re: Mixcraft 8 doesn't detect Amplitube 4

What is the advantage of using Mixcraft as a 32-bit app? If you have plugins that are only available as 32 bit, 64-bit Mixcraft can use most (if not all) of those.

Re: Mixcraft 8 doesn't detect Amplitube 4

EDIT: See Mark's post immediately after this one.

Is it possible that you inadvertently installed 64-bit Amplitube in the 32-bit plugin folder? I don't know what Mixcraft would do in that situation.

Also, if you have another DAW or other VST host that uses 32 plugins, try opening Amplitube in that.

Yeah, I was aware of that possibility Richard. But I installed the demo and confirmed, it loads as an instrument and works placed before your chosen VSTi. [...] some tweakers might find it useful. I, too, tried the demo when I discovered there is one. Instabuy for me. I once tried to kludge togethe...
