Graphics problem with Waves GTR Solo

On my old system Waves GTR Solo as an insert uses 6-8% CPU but when I open the GUI it jumps to more than 50% and stays there after I close the GUI. Any ideas as to why?

Windows 10 Pro, Intel G41M dual-core processor, 8 GB Ram, ESI Maya 44e soundcard

Re: Demo song clanger

Fair enough Mitchell, I guess I'm just old-fashioned. I've only ever heard a major third sung over a minor chord once before - Randy Newman's "In Germany Before The War", so you're in good company ...

Demo song clanger

Anyone noticed the clanger from lead singer Kim in the Mixcraft Pro demo song "I Can't Go On This Way"? Bar 15 (and bar 47) she sings an A natural (the word "patiently") against an Fm chord. Easy to drop it to an Ab with Melodyne - maybe that's why it was left in, to give us something to practise on ?

Re: volume boost?

Following Greg's instructions I've armed the left channel and roughly tested the channel input level using the free Naiant VU meters and the mono meter reads quite a bit higher than the stereo one - I would guess at least 6 dB although I don't have the means to do any accurate testing. I can clearly...

Re: volume boost?

Greg, when you asked if I was using the left channel is that a problem? Just to try to get things straight in my head: my soundcard (ESI Maya 44e) has stereo 1/4" jack inputs. When I use a standard guitar lead it's the left channel that works. Should I wire a stereo plug to use the right channel onl...

Re: volume boost?

I've just realized that the Tuner from Waves GTR 3 is doing it too.

Re: volume boost?

Yes, that would make sense but I don't know where that leaves me with Waves GTR and its 3 formats: mono, mono-to-stereo and stereo ... I remember years ago with Cubase that Waves GTR mono-to-stereo had to have the channel insert routing changed to stop the dry signal bypassing the plugin and adding ...

volume boost?

Hi, I'm confused as to how insert plugins should be used. I record a mono signal from my guitar into Mixcraft which results in a track recorded in mono. However when I then use Sonalksis FreeG mono as an insert there's a noticeable volume boost which doesn't happen with the stereo version. Same thin...

Clip gain

In Mixcraft 8, is there a way to adjust audio clip gain by dragging it up and down (like Pro Tools)?

Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

I apologize if this has been requested before but how about adding an "include media" option when saving a template?

record metronome

Any chance of adding a simple way to record the metronome as audio in MX8? It's surprising the number of people that are looking for this in almost all of the DAWs. I know it's straightforward to make your own click track but as a songwriter I just want to get the basic song down as quickly as possi...
