 I usually drag and drop but didn't on these so that may be it.  Going to try it again in a few minutes.  However, there are going to be times that I will need to align tracks, so I'm still baffled on that one.

Make sure you pull them all the way over to the left as far as you can, Dennis.  Also make note where you dragged them from because that's where they're going to link from.  Meaning that if you change the location of that file and you go to rework the mix later, the file won't show up in the project.  The way I do it is I create a folder when I start a project and link everything from there so the program knows where the files are.

 

Let me know how you're coming along and I will help you with every step.  Also, the forum on Acoustica's website is EXCELLENT!  Post any concern there and somebody will help you in a timely and friendly manner.

Just found this thread too. I've had Acoustica Mixcraft for just over a year now and I really like it. Very, very user friendly. I had Sonar Home Studio and had a horrible time with it. I know a lot of people do great with it, but I don't know "studio" terminology. Don't have the skills of a sound engineer. I needed something that literally says "push here to record." Mixcraft is exceptionally easy to work with and you can be recording a song with an afternoon or less....Good thread.

Hope you got this sorted. Over time I've learnt to deal with 'align tracks' issues before they arise. I always record my first couple of tracks using the metronome. That or I have a drum loop track going to keep me on time. Later on, if I have to align stuff I use the 'snap to' feature. It's a little button, top centre left of the screen. You can snap to measure (one bar) or smaller units 1/2 beat, 1/4 beat etc. As long as your main rhythm or drum tracks are right it's quite easy to get things aligned.

That advice can go wrong but it nearly always works for me.;)

I had my own equipment back in the days of reel-to-reel Teacs. Since things got complicated, I let studio professionals do the technical work.
