Re: Mixcraft Suggestions!

A Toneboosters update? If deals can be made that incorporate more of their plugins (they are good value) eg Barricade and Reelbus and an update to their 64bit versions.

Also, tiny icon representations of each added FX on the channel strip?

Marvellous!

I hear you, and many forums agree. But expensive though, my (cheapskate lol) aim of this post was to find the freeware ones ha ha

Thanks! Just bought an id14 from Amazon (arrives tomorrow)...and it seems to fix some of the problems of the older 22 eg bigger meters.

Good tip! Compression ain't just downwards if makeup gain engaged.

Any favourite limiters?

Favourite Limiter suggestions

I make no secret that I love Limiters, variously I try to avoid them, but am always brought back by the smoothing effect they can have when used *right* My current favs (all FREEWARE in the right places, magazine versions etc) are: Limiter no.6 a very very flexible multiband limiter, with lookahead ...

Re: A good gain staging workflow in Mixcraft?

If I have understood you correctly, you are adjusting each track's output to -0.5db. If you have multiple tracks all outputting at 0.5db then overloading the master bus summariser is inevitable. No, I am not adjusting each track's output to -0.5dB. Nothing is hitting the master at that level in any...

... (a) mix to new clip Ctrl+W then Normalize Ctrl+K) Don't normalize. You will run out of headroom and you also run the risk of overloading some plugins. I only seem to do this on some clips, to get a good height waveform to automate levels against, I just think comping many narrow/hard to see tra...

A good gain staging workflow in Mixcraft?

Like others I'm sure, I find gain staging hard. The whole digital thing.....and we all have so so much to learn, with this great product too. Scroll to the end for the questions :-) So, this is what I tend to do, but would appreciate advice! I see the ProTools etc videos, and see different things. N...

Re: Questions on how to operate synths like Acoustica Nightlife

Just one word - Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. Well, 5 words. Hmmm. Oh, and Vince Clarke. But yes. Synths used rhythmically, or blended in to be be almost unheard ie supportive, and in an orchestral sense are sublime.
