Hi, i'm having an error in magma compilation. I have a master track for the drums track, so I'm using [mix 0-3 drums3] However when I try to compile it, it gives me this error

    If you are actually using '[mix 0-3 drums3]' then that is your problem. You need separate events:
    [mix 0 drums3]
    [mix 1 drums3]
    etc.

    and just to double check, you said you have "a master track" for the drums track. If you mean that you have a single track with all the drum sounds on it, then you want drums0. drums3 means you have a stereo kick file, a stereo snare file, and a stereo kit file.

    Yeah, I'm using those individually, im sorry, I shouldve said that. And I mean as in i have a kit track, a snare track, and a bass drum track.

    Thanks for the response

    bad mix 'drums 3' at 1:1:000
    OK then from this error I'd say you might have a space between the 'drums' and the '3' which is not good.

    Unfortunately, although thats what it says, the midi has no space.

    Difficulty 1 is medium right? So what do I have to do there?

    Well, that's just because of the bad mix text event that is at 1:1:000.

    It sees some problem with that mix event, and then part two of the error is, "oh yeah, and also you don't have a mix event for difficulty 1!" They are two sides of the same coin.

    So do me a favor, and copy and paste the text for all of your mix events into your next reply so we can see what you have.

    Or take a screenshot of them and post it.

    If nothing were wrong, it would compile :)

    But I admit I don't see anything. I don't really like all the mix events stacked on 1.1.0. Try moving them a bit to the right, and if that still doesn't work, can you post a screenshot of the midi event list?

    I deleted all the mix events, and put them back again. And now it compiled. Thanks for your help.

    Why is it that the problems we spend the most time scratching our heads over have the easiest solutions? :)

    It was likely that you had one of the old events set to something other than "Text Event", That's what happened to me XD; ...

    Sorry for threadjacking, but I just realized - how can 'mix # drum3' ever work if the kick's supposed to be mono? Shouldn't 'drum3' be Stereo kit/Stereo snare/Mono kick?

    Well, you can have a stereo kick stem. I'm not sure how common that is (I'm sure there are reasons for recording the kick in stereo that I'm not aware of) but as long as you use the drums3 event there's nothing preventing you from having a stereo kick stem.

    Magma's always rejected stereo files for the kick stem, at least for me. I can't even start compiling if the kick stem is anything BUT mono!
