Hi,

Just got a new 'puter and I wanted to put my Mixcraft 6 on it. I put the mixcraft6 installer on the new machine and it takes me to the Mixcraft 7 installer.

I have obviously pooped.

Hi Greg,

Thanks. What I have decided to do is upgrade from 6 to 7. How do i do that?

I am running Win 8.1 64 bit. Will Mixcraft 7 run in 32 bit on this system or should I install the 64 bit M7?
Will I be able to open M6 projects in Mixcraft 7?

Hi,

You can run 32- or 64-bit Mixcraft. Install 64-bit Mixcraft if you've got more than 4 GB of RAM and you have lots of 64-bit plugins. If you've got mostly 32-bit plugins, or you've got 4 GB of RAM or less, install 32-bit Mixcraft. Actually, you can install both 32- and 64-bit Mixcraft and see which one performs best for you. 64-bit Mixcraft is mostly for people with enormous RAM-hungry 64-bit plugins.

Mixcraft 7 can open Mixcraft 6 projects, but Mixcraft 6 cannot open Mixcraft 7 projects.

Mixcraft upgrade page.

Greg
