No idea about wersion 6, but in the newer versions there is an option in display preferences 'Draw audio and MIDI data on clips'.

Hi,

If you increase the track height a bunch, can you see the waveform?

Hi,

Assuming you have a check mark next to "Draw audio and MIDI data on clips" selected in Display preferences...

You made the track really tall and you saw nothing, but you can hear the audio when you play it?

Go into Mixcraft's General preferences and click Delete Temporary Files, then restart Mixcraft.

If that doesn't fix the problem, go back into General preferences and make a note of your Temporary Files Directory. What is it set to?

By the way, did you know you can upgrade all the way to Mixcraft 9 Pro Studio for only $39? https://acoustica.com/mixcraft/upgrades

Hi,

Just to be clear, you have a check mark next to "Draw audio and MIDI data on clips" in Display preferences?

If you add a few loops from Mixcraft's library, do you see waveforms?
