Just to help clarify, the .kristal file contains no music, audio etc. It only contains the settings for the various plugins, etc. While this may sound weird, it has some very positive uses. For instance, when I taught a sound class last year, I had all my students install Kristal into the same path on their computer. When they did a mix with the wav files I provided, all I needed was the Kristal file to review their work. The Kristal file is very small (especially when compared to a mix at CD quality), and it allowed me to see exactly what they had done in the mix.

This setup will also work well if you are doing a collaboration with someone else. As long as your installation of kristal is in the same path, as well as plug-ins and wav files, all you need to exchange is the .kristal file.

As Smurf said, to create a CD quality file that can be converted to mp3, you will need to create a mix-down, and the help file explains this pretty well.

Guys I use a program called Switch to convert my wav, plus numerous other file types to mp3. You can also select your bitrate. I use the free version also.

I still use GoldWave to convert my wavs mainly because my final mixes are intended for CD and every other conversion program I've used ups the volume a bit - therefore - after the conversion I decrease the volume of the file by 5% for the mp3 version.

Hello Dear Music Friends,

I compose music for others. Now people are asking me to record all in MIDI ?
I know that Kristal can not record in MIDI ( They were telling me that)
I have a licenced version of Kristal v 1.0.1 ( 2004 ) .
We are now 2007, but still NO Upgrate or update.

Does somebody know When a new Update will be ready and If with the new version it will be able to record in MIDI ?

Thanks for the advise !

Do we know?? The short answer: NO! K2 has been much promised for the last 18 months or so, but for whatever reason has still to materialise. I believe that midi support has been mooted, but like the rest, I'm waiting and seeing. I believe reaper supports midi and has some supporters within the forum.

I think we all hear what you are saying there Smurf: while we all love and thank the krystal experience so far (and its simplicity is a selling point) it is starting to look a bit jaded compared to some of the newer kids on the block. As an aside there was an earlier version of krystal at the turn of the century: a simple four track, which I remmeber trying and not getting further than "why doesn't live in work??". From small acorns...??

I do love the Kristal Program.
The program should be Updated. But NO link to find.

I am receiving emails telling me that *** member and *** member posted a reply on my Posting, but unfortunatly, the links are not working at all !!! What is going wrong ?

I am a little disapointed that , a Big compant like Behringer is even Promoting the Kristal Program,.... So you download, YOU PAY FOR IT... in the hope there will be at least a little Technical support, but .... Only the Forum is there. NO UPDATE NO NOTHING.

I receive links , Who are NOT working at all ... Seems VERY strange to me.

OK, there is the Manual, but Real Support ?? Where to get ?

I hope that at least 1 person will know WHERE to go for technical support after paying for the program.

Best regards.

Momo

I can tell you why your links do not work

if you will notice that the link looks like this...

http://www.kristalusers.netviewthread.php?tid=3752&page=...

the problem is that there needs to be a back slash (/) after kristalusers.net so instead of hot linking to the thread copy then paste to your browser and put a / between kristalusers.net and viewthread then then the link will work

this link will work http://www.kristalusers.net/viewthread.php?tid=3752&page...

I have only really been using Kristal for about a week and in that time I have learned a lot about the program.
it seems to be a very straitforward program and relatively simple to use compaired to a standalone multi track recording work station that requires you to have a masters degree in audio engineering to be able to operate:mad:

I have to hand it to the people who use this forum, they are pretty good at answering questions in a timely manner.

I have not had an answer that has not went unanswered so far.
if I come across any additonal online support or a phone number I will be sure to pass that information along to you. :)

Aye aye Cap'n Smurf

For all the recent new members and guests that might jump on the forum and read the threads - THIS IS THE SUPPORT for Kristal.

I think the ONLY question that has not been sorted and cleared up 100% is the good old "Live In" feature. There have been many work arounds but I am not sure if a straighforward answer has been forthcoming.

Matthias really owes a lot of favours to some of the long time forum members for taking care of the laundry. In saying that, he did us the favour of creating this FREE software and opening our eyes (mine and a few others at least). He has only made 55 posts over the past 4 years and 8 months so as I mentioned above, THIS FORUM IS THE SUPPORT.

I think that's all
:D

kristel programs are the best. I love them.

It's hard to find a converter for this but you can use goldwave though.

Hello Momo and welcome to the forum. I use Switch also for conversions. It's fast and easy to use on the fly so to speak. I just started messing around with the Audacity beta and I use it for conversions lots more it seems. Especially when I am working on a tune there.

You've had you questions about Kristal Updates and Support answered:). This is the Kristal Support place:D and insofar as updates, who knows when, what and where?:D

But on the plus side of Kristal, the price, she is right and the quality of the software is excellent. It certainly has some "quirks" that have to be worked out for each individual depending upon their hardware/gear setup when they first start. I certainly did.

I have been in the forum about 9 months now and have yet to not find an answer to a problem here. Just have patience and you will be at 100% soon. Heck if you think KAE is complicated take a look at Reaper :D.

Once you get things sorted out is when the "fun" learning starts. The experienced members have taught me so much about not only KAE but have given me a better understanding of the science of audio recording and what I am doing with a gate or a compressor or an eq. Don't be bashful about posting a tune for us to listen to and give feedback on your work. This helps me a bunch! Take part in a Kristal Monthly Challenge is a great step to take.

Lots of us use SoundClick.com and TwoTrackMusic.com to share our work. TwoTrackMusic has some great forums with lots of us there too.

Hang in there. Give my website a visit there is a section on How To Use Kristal for beginners with a couple videos about common problems and some great links. Just go to the Aswego Studio from the homepage.

Going back to the original topic, about converting files, I had forgotten about this. When I upgraded to a new comp, for some reason I couldn't use Switch anymore, without purchasing it. (maybe it only licenses for one system? Don't know). Anyway, when I wanted to convert We Want You Home last month, I used this: http://www.zamzar.com

You just browse for the file you want to convert, specify the format you want, and click. They convert it and email you a link to where you can download it. Worked flawlessly. And extremely quick. Best of all, it's free (no need to even sign up) for up to 100MB. I was very happy with it.
