Re: midi instruments pitching down

Had this type of thing happen to me when I was using an old synth as my controller. It was dying and throwing random stuff in all the time. Updated my controller since then, but some things I was able to notice that seemed to help. Sometimes it seemed to occur when the track was unfrozen, this may h...

Re: Song production - what are your go-to songs you admire?

Ok I'll bite... Just grabbing any 5 from my playlist of great mixes. This playlist is my goto for mixing inspiration. All great songwriting where the production pushes it to another level. These are some of the songs I will continue to chase for the rest of my life. Mendocino County Line - Willie Ne...

Re: ErinAva

Just noticed this today in Soundcloud. Loved the sax riffing throughout. Good tune Dave.

Re: Change snare sound of a drum kit?

Assuming you have the entire kit in one track... You'll have better control by having each "piece" in its own track ie kick in 1, snare in 2, hit hat in 3, etc all under a "Drum" submix. With each in their own track to can assign whatever VST or voice you want. Kick from heavy kit, snare from room k...

Re: Add Global Tracks to Mixcraft 7

What do you mean by Global tracks? Are you referring to tracks that will be there each time you open MC? If so that can be done by creating a template. You can create a template that when you start a new project will always have your "global" tracks: verb send, gtr, vox, drums, etc with your prefere...

Re: And She's Gone

Thanks Rick. The lyrics steered me to a R&B feel. And I just tried to get a nice "traditional" sound. First time using horns and hope they came off sounding decent. Still working on video and now the mix is just little tweaks here and there. Although I'm considering a slight tempo bump in the bridge...

Re: Little song, big learning experience....

Nice work Rick. Agree with Tom the arraignment and mix allows each voice to stand out. Just a small suggestion... the reverb on the piano gives it an electric feel (maybe you used a e piano vst), and seems boxed in with eq. Maybe open up the range by less eq to give it a more natural piano sound tha...

Re: And She's Gone

Thanks Nicky. While working on the video I've already made some notes on changes including less direct reverb on vox and more of an overall room feel on the total mix. Great idea on the horns, I'll try that.

And She's Gone - Final Mix w/ Video

Work in progress. Taking a break to start on video before I finish it out. R&B tune. First time using horns :wink: . Any suggestions on the mix? Thanks.

Re: Interface Channels - how many?

Really think the simpler solution is to monitor it all thru you MC main and output bus out your PC speakers. With my interface the output is significantly out of sync with MC thru PC speakers. Good Luck.

Re: Mixcraft hitting very apparent limits

If you not freezing tracks especially midi or heavy fx you should try that.

Re: Being Creative but not being able to Create

Wow really reaching out in the last few post for some positive reinforcement or coddling? Nothing worthwhile is easy. Nothing falls in your lap. Creativity takes hard work.
