Yeah, and it’s a PITA.

At least your mix will be in the "pocket".

Yeah, just because lobster may not be on the the menu doesn’t mean hamburgers aren’t... At this point I’m learning not to expect my request to be delivered... But In the meantime, it won’t stop me from requesting it. :wink:

1. Ability to view other tracks in "background" while editing midi. Easily switch between tracks and copy and paste between tracks. Having the capability of the freeware "MidiEditor" would be great.

2. Simplified routing where any track could have as its input not only external inputs, but any other track output or bus. Loopbacks could be flagged

3. A performance "mixer" mode -- external input routed to outputs without a "mon" button that doesn't get saved. No recording needed just load the song including audio tracks, video track, midi; mix with external audio and midi tracks and go

Clear Recent Projects List Please!!

There's a way to do it but you have to dig away through the registry, find the entries then delete them one by one manually which is both risky and time consuming.

Cheers.

I admit i didnt read every posts so i hope this wasn't already mentioned :

1 : Bug fixes : I like the program but every now and then i get a plugin error and i have to restart mixcraft a few times so it gets away and works, i also get crashes, ui bugs (mainly in the mixer) etc.

2 : UI improvements : I know you're a small team and I love that, but i'd love something at least on par with all the main DAWs out there in terms of looks, icons, colors (especially COLOR the whole tracks in the mixer !), the ability to increase the size of the waveforms in the sequencer view, the possibility of undocking the mixer THEN being able to switch from sequencer/mixer with a shortcut on a single screen.

3 : I'm sorry i'm crossing the line but i have a few i need to mention (I'm a new user coming from PT and ST1) : Ability to reorganize the tracks directly in the mixer, advanced routing (routing one track to multiple outputs, route a send to a submix etc.), better delay compensation (tbh it doesnt seem to work that much if you start doing parallel stuff with more than one plugin), automatic audio quantization without having to manually click the transients, better controller support (with my komplete 49 i can't press play), multi-mono plugins (we love brauerizing at the studio), more keyboard shortcuts, more speed in terms of opening a projet and bouncing a mix, Sends follow main pan (!), and of course : plugin management by vendor, type etc.

In a way, i respected the rule and only wrote 3 numbers ;) I like Mixcraft a lot but as a professionnal engineer i admit that there are the things that (for now) prevent me from using MC as my main DAW.
Though i think it's the DAW on the market that has the best ideas and the best potential (and i tried at least demos of every DAW that exist ;) )

Cheers to the team though ! Keep it up !

1. Add larger number of bars or 'no limit' option to Performance panel Recording setting. Generally I always have it set to max 64 bars and then edit the markers after.

2. A 'simple instrument' VST track option for multiple output VST instruments. The audio output and MIDI would be on the same track, a far cleaner option. Cakewalk by Bandlab (Free) has this and it works great. Much easier to work with, and it may even solve some issues. Kontakt users would flock.

3. Better record count-in functionality for the Performance Panel. An option for the count to start at the beginning of the first bar every time. The same way its done in Ableton Live.
