Mixcraft recording computer demise

Post by Bobby Love » Wed Jan 13, 2021 8:00 pm

After 5 years of daily work it is gone. Local and reputable repair shop advises to purchase new computer due repair cost. Unfortunately new computer is on the way. The old one was like a pair of my old biker boots...just perfect.
Questions have arisen which are....
1. Am I still able to download mixcraft with my invoice and previous purchase/download information I printed? Approx a year ago I downloaded 9 Pro Studio.
2. Having forgotten my old log in and registration etc can you delete the old acct? Same username.
THX!

I failed to post my 3rd question.
When do I find the system requirements for Pro Studio. I did eveything backwards in a panic and ordered before I checked specs. I have some canacellation time.

System requirements are one thing, having a machine that is powerful enough for recording is something else. You can get by with less but the general advice is to get the most powerful processor and as much RAM as you can afford. A good start is an i7 (newer is better), 16gb RAM and a SSD. You can do with less but you'll find the more you throw at it the less it'll perform.

Totally agree with Rolling Estonian.
By comparison, my largest project has been 68 audio tracks on an i5 with 4 gig of RAM - hassle free.
I wouldn't want to push it much further than that though :lol:
Keep on trackin'
