Acoustica updates Mixcraft 8 to v8.1


Acoustica has updated Mixcraft 8 to v8.1 (the latest is build 390).

Mixcraft 8.1 Build 390:

  • Fix for Gui markers getting out of sync with sound engine markers. (Was due to optimization in 389).
  • Freezing MIDI output track automation lanes when parent track gets frozen.
  • When loading a project with a frozen instrument track, any instrument output tracks will also set themselves to be "Frozen".
  • Bug #9535, changed 'Mils' to 'Ms' which is technically correct.
  • "Sidechain Source" text is now properly vertically centered.
  • Send knob twiddling from external controller when locked to envelope and no points on envelope.
  • Updating send knobs & mixer when envelope editing gets undone/redone (in cases when knobs locked to envelope and level at caret position would be affected by the editing).
