GetGood Drums/Kontakt samples cutting out early

Post by formerbusinessowner » Sat Jan 18, 2020 4:56 pm

I'm having an issue with GGD Modern and Massive in Mixcraft (both 8 and 9) where samples cut out early during playback and rendering. Generally a specific hit will cut out the first time I play a project upon opening, and any time I try to render. I've tried messing about with various memory settings in Kontakt but to no avail - was wondering if anyone else has come across anything similar?

My current workaround is to render each channel (and the virtual instrument track itself) to stems and re-load into the project once I'm ready to mix, the virtual instrument track will have cutouts but the individual stems themselves will be fine. Only problem is the extra space this takes up on my PC.

Hi,

Which version and build of Mixcraft are you using? Check and see if there are any updates for the version of Kontakt that you are using.

I have a similar issue with other Kontakt libaries, happening seemingly arbitrary.

I updated to the latest Mixcraft and Kontakt builds to no avail. I have since built a new PC with far more processing power which has no issues with cutout during rendering, but I do sometimes get cutout during playback within the DAW (no more than once during a session)

Hi,

When you say the latest Mixcraft, do you mean Mixcraft 9.0 build 452?

Go into Mixcraft's Sound Device preferences? What do you have selected as your Playback Device? Which mode are you using? WaveRT? ASIO?

Yes latest build

I'm using Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 as my ASIO device, 44.1kHz 32bit 120 buffer. As the issue is no longer affecting rendering I've not really paid attention to it but I'll try to keep a note of when it happens and under what circumstances
