Re: Just a quick thanks

Yes, the support is becoming the main reason I play with Mixcraft more often than any of my other toys.

Re: Can I take individual tracks from my Tascam analog multitrack recorder and add to Mixcraft 8

... The Tascam has a left and right out put to which I connected two male rca jacks to one male xlr jack that goes into the Roland Quad Capture. This doesn't sound right to me. I think you want to connect the two RCA outputs to the two inputs on the Roland interface using RCA to 1/4 inch cables. Do...

Re: Can I take individual tracks from my Tascam analog multitrack recorder and add to Mixcraft 8

I have done similar tasks and will add a couple of thoughts from my experience. ... Excellent advice, Mark. I have read about the "clapboard" technique but made the assumption there wouldn't be any way to add something to the existing tracks, and (if I remember correctly) most four track machines o...

Re: Can I take individual tracks from my Tascam analog multitrack recorder and add to Mixcraft 8

The following suggestion assumes that your four-track cassette machine can play back any two tracks you choose, one panned hard left and the other panned hard right. If that's true, transfer the following stereo pairs into Mixcraft: Tracks 1 and 2 Tracks 1 and 3 Tracks 1 and 4 In Mixcraft, line up t...

Re: Can I take individual tracks from my Tascam analog multitrack recorder and add to Mixcraft 8

... Is there a way to sync the tracks so that they all play at the same time? I believe that you will have to do this manually in Mixcraft -- unless you can find a four-track cassette machine with four line outputs, one for each track, and are using an audio interface with at least four line inputs...

Re: Pitch correction?

From what I can tell, you upgraded to Mixcraft 8 Recording Studio (no Melodyne) rather than Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio (includes Melodyne). If that's true, then I suggest you ask customer service to change your upgrade for the difference in price. It appears that you haven't even tried Melodyne yet. If y...

Re: ASIO drivers

For me the path of least resistance turns out to be something that sounds complicated but really isn't. Depending on your ASIO-driven interface, there may be two options. (1) Use the audio output on your motherboard for YouTube, etc. and merge it with the monitor output from your interface using a s...

Re: Note input to Sibelius through Mixcraft

If you can't make Rewire work for this, an alternative approach is a virtual MIDI driver. I use Loop MIDI https://www.tobias-erichsen.de/software/loopmidi.html but there are other free ones that also work. This solution might have more latency than Rewire, but for your purpose that might not matter.

Fair enough, but I suspect that once you started using TouchOSC or similar software on a tablet you wouldn't turn back.

Re: Omni Sampler question

Not that I found. What you can do, though, is set the Release knob (under Envelope) to minimum. Then, when you release a key, there's no decay and that sample stops immediately. But if you keep holding one key down while pressing another key, you will still get both sounds.

Performance panel round robin

Would it be feasible to add the following feature to the performance panel as an option? If a track has multiple lanes, the alternate takes are played back in the same manner as round robin sets of samples in a virtual instrument. In other words, on each repetition of a given set, one lane is select...
