Hi all, first time Mixcraft user here. So far, I am really impressed with the awesome simplicity of Mixcraft.

However, I am experiencing one huge problem getting in the way of my recording. The Midi keyboard sounds is wayyyyy quiet compared to all other sounds. Even when I jack the green line to max, it is too quiet. This quietness becomes very annoying when I want to use the metronome, or play with samples, as they are way way louder than the keyboard.

Any settings I can change to take care of this? The volume on my keyboard is set to max.

What about your sound card's mixer or the window' mixer?Have you got them set correctly to feed the software?

My E-mu 404 sound card comes with it's own software mixer so I have to set volumes in that as well as then use MC's sliders etc.It also comes with E-mu proteusX which adds sample drum/synths/basses etc that are far superirior to midi.

I'm not promoting a product here but the E-mu 404 was at the cheap end of music sound cards but the bundled software alone was worth the price.I hope to have my 1st Mixcraft song project finished soon to showcase what I have done with this great piece of music recording software
:D

Hi,

Some instruments are naturally louder than others. Which one are you using? Somebody suggested in another thread that adding a compression effect really helped.

Also, rather than trying to crank up the MIDI volume, try reducing the volume on the other sounds.
