MixW Version 4 SmartSDR Configuration

After installing Mixw Version 4 (Registered) any attempt to assign SmartSDR DAX controls and saving the configuration causes Mixw Version 4 to crash. I am not real sure why this is happening!  If any one out there is using Mixw Version 4 would it be possible to see your configuration for both the soundcard and rig selection?

I figured that CAT would still be Kenwood; however, it is a mystery why DAX would crash...  I will try to get hold of those across the pond later today and see what they have to say.   I do not have any problems with MixW Version 3 as DAX works great; however version 4 looks great and has many more options.

Same here. CAT/PTT works with TS-480 settings. DAX crashes the program. I have sent a message to the developer.

Thanks George. DAX RX is the actual product causing the crash.  I sent a note to the developer also and lets see if they can come up with some magic they can come up with to give us some joy.

George, have you heard anything from the developer on our issue?   I have not received a response from them as of yet.

I suspect that this is a MIXW problem where the programmer has not accounted for the longer sound device name and when entered, there is a buffer overrun situation that causes the program to throw an error that is not handled properly.  I would be reporting this to the developer.

If MixW is not being updated regularly anymore, you may want to consider FLDigi.  It is actively being updated and this is the program Support uses for validating digital mode setup because of how reliably it works with both CAT and DAX..

Good Morning Tim. 

A new version is out for Mixw4 (MixW4 V1.0.4 05-April-2018) which i have not installed and tested as of yet.  Previous requests to the developer have not been answered directly. Rigexpert now owns the software product which is a good sign. It does look like they are actively working on the software according to their errata sheet for the current release.

I agree with you on the longer sound name as the possible problem.  I also like FLDigi and it works very well; however since a group of us paid for the new version of Mixw4 we are hoping that the developer has taken into account our wishes for a working program.

I will let you all know how we make out.

Charlie, thanks for the update on the change of ownership for MixW.  Hopefully, you will get a remedy soon.  Good luck!

Thanks Tim;


I did just install Version 1.0.5 and DAX still does not work and crashes the application.  I guess we will need to wait on the developer and see if they answer our requests for help.

Same problem here, Mixw 4 program (newest version) stops when selecting DAX. Fldigi works fine so do older Mixw 3 versions. I can get the cat to work and the transmit audio selected and it will transmit but the dax rx audio kills the program.

I have dropped MIXW from my drawer of software because of these issues and bought HRD which seems to work FB.

I recommend using fldigi, which is free and works like a charm with SmartSDR all versions.
