    Artist Mix stops play on Media Composer v8

    Hi, I have just started at a post outfit using MC 8.9.4

    and I can only get my Artist Mix to work if I press the rec button on the Audio Mixer window.

    On previous versions of MC the mixer would work without arresting play provided the Audio Mixer window was on the Auto panel as opposed to the clip panel.

    Is there anyone who knows if I am doing something wrong?

    to re-cap - play media, touch a fader and play stops unless I play media by selecting rec on the Audio Mixer window.

    Thanks in advance

    Please do let me know if there is anyone out there who has a functioning Artist Mix on Media Composer v8

    or is it now obsolete on this version?

    I've been using my Artist Mix on 8.9.4 for months with no problem.

    (Up until this morning, when it suddenly won't power on anymore. But thats a hardware issue, up until then it worked very well.)

    Mike:

    I've been using my Artist Mix on 8.9.4 for months with no problem.

    Thanks very much for this Mike - At least I'll be able to investigate my system further to find out what is going on - maybe its an issue with the network connection.

    If I do get to the bottom of it before the end of this project I'll post the outcome.

    Re: Artist Mix stops play on Media Composer v8

    So - different project, different edit fascility, different mac and the same problem;

    Touch the faders on my control surface and Media Composer stops playing.

    I can mute/solo without the thing stopping but thats it.

    This is PANTS!

    Can I get my control surface back to an earlier firmware? It used to work fine.

    Disappointed with AvidAngry

    Re: Artist Mix stops play on Media Composer v8

    Thanks for getting them involved Marianna,

    The upshot is as I expected, this is a problem with MC8.9.4

    After numerous emails back and forth with Avid support I was informed that

    "This specific issue was discovered in Media Composer 8.9.4 and was fixed in 2018.x releases."

     

    I did suggest that Avid make this issue known, perhaps in the forum so that others don't spend the time I did trying to resolve it but was told that the information is in the release notes for MC2018 Huh?
