Mixcraft 9 Pro Studio requires Internet access for Voltage Modular Ignite and Melodyne activation.
Voltage Modular Ignite (included in Mixcraft Pro Studio) requires 64-bit Windows and 64-bit Mixcraft.
When using a laptop, connect the power adapter, especially if you are hearing audio glitches or gapping.
64-bit Mixcraft works more efficiently with 64-bit plugins. 32-bit plugins will work in 64-bit Mixcraft, but use more CPU.
If experiencing audio gapping or breakups, increase audio device latency, close other programs, and consider defragmenting your hard drive.
