Re: ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Many thanks, but the R8 doesn't show up on interface startup like your R16, must be a different set up machine. No blinking of the interface display etc. You say you contacted Samson Support? I might just try Zoom and give them an earful for all my trouble which may have been a time waste, as an ear...

Re: ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Thank you kindly Ian, you have confirmed what I suspected all along, that the thing will not function as it is claimed to. Until someone comes along and say that they have one working as an interface, I wont waste any more time on it. Cheers, Geoff

Re: ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Hi all, I have really hit the wall with this. Unless I can get confirmation from someone that they are using the Zoom R8 as an interface, and preferably to Mixcraft, I would have to say it will never work. When preferences is selected, the Zoom and UR242 units are listed under Asio drivers, that's a...

Re: ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Hi all, nothing tried with this has worked. I tried the Zoom in card reader mode and it works fine. I even tried a different cable to the original supplied, same result. I am starting to think that this Zoom R8 will not work as an interface with any DAW. I even installed Reason, which came free with...

Re: What does a direct in box do and how can it help static issues...

A direct box, also better known in the live music industry as a DI box, is used mainly where you have to run mike cables etc over a distance. Where a normal guitar cable has only two wires, if you plug that into a DI box, it converts it to what we call a balanced system where 3 wires are used. These...

Re: ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Thanks Greg, the driver version I have is the current one from the Zoom site, as per the link you posted earlier. I will try your new idea though.

Re: ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Thanks guys, but I checked the drivers and I have the latest drivers already. Disabled my computer soundcard, and the UR242, still Mixcraft tells me it cannot play sounds via the Zoom device. It also tells the same when trying to record. Tried using the devices default settings, no joy. Even tried M...

ZOOM R8 AS AN INTERFACE TO MIXCRAFT

Hi all, cannot get this Zoom to work with Mixcraft.Downloaded the most recent drivers for it. It shows up under preferences, as available. I can select the Zoom R8 Asio driver, but nothing then displays in the default playback and record devices. It just remains greyed out. I can then go back to my ...

Re: Mixcraft bundle

By what I see, most of the ''bundle'' DAW's are usually just a basic sniff of the full version anyway. Far better to just pay for the best value for money one outright, which is this one.......Mixcraft! I had a look at Cubase LE8, only for the fact it came ''bundled'' with my Steinberg UR242, and de...

Re: Mix With The Masters

Speaking of reverbs, since I started using the Steinberg UR242, the Revx reverb it it is pretty hard to fault. Does what I need, and does it very well. Probably the best plate reverb I have came across.

Re: Steinberg UR242 recording effects in Mixcraft

I may have found the issue. It may appear that as I am trying to ''print'' the reverb, that may not be possible as I can record the other guitar amps etc in the channel strip, just not the reverb. Looks like it must be added at mixdown using it via it's vst. Unless there is a workaround to do it the...

Re: Steinberg UR242 recording effects in Mixcraft

Still having issues with this. Followed the video, and set the ''insert effects'' to on in the channel strip, but I am still recording just the dry signal. Beats me what to try next.

Steinberg UR242 recording effects in Mixcraft

Hi all, finally got to set up the new UR242 with Mixcraft Pro 8. Appears to be a nice sounding unit, and better than my older Focusrite gen 1 2i2. I would like to record the effects from within the 242, as I am hearing them in the headphones, but cant seem to get it right. Just getting the dry signa...
