Is there a way to type-in comments for a project?

Post by MXCRFT864 » Fri Apr 07, 2017 3:13 am

In Mixcraft 8 is there a function to type-in comments within a project? When I use to use Adobe Audition it let you open a Summary window, or text box, to write down notes about a project. I used it to keep track of what knob settings and external effects I used on my keyboard for certain audio tracks.

Hi,

Yes, just select the Project tab (as opposed to Sound, Mixer, or Library tabs).

Alternatively, if you want a floating window of text, just download Melda Productions 'MNotepad' (along with their 31 or so other free plugins) and load it on the master track as an FX (and click edit as you can with any other edit window to make it appear top so that you see it first when the project loads). Note: Just remember to click the keyboard option on the right otherwise it inputs all typed letters twice for some reason that I don't understand. It uses no cpu anyway.
Just a thought. Good luck :)

s'pose I should put in a request for track based notes capability... I can't seem to find that function... Looks like the plugin might be able to handle that, tho, so that's cool.
