Editors' reviewThere is something to be said for stripping a program down to the bare essentials. Acoustica MP3 Audio Mixer makes the case by reducing audio-editing to a multitrack composition window and a handful of basic features such as volume, pan, and pitch. Simply dragging an audio file into the layout window gets it into the mix. Then you can start moving your audio segments around like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Everything is editable right from the main window without the hassle of digging through menus or stumbling over vague-looking icons. The program imports and exports WAV, MP3, WMA, and Real Audio formats. Getting a few sound files to flow together can be an overwhelming task for the uninitiated. Programs such as Acoustica MP3 Audio Mixer offer a quick and easy solution for getting your mixes sounding professional.
Mix MP3, WMA, and WAV files to create your own custom DJ-style mix CD. Record your own sounds and layer sound effects and music tracks to create your own audio mixes for audio books or radio shows.

Features include an intuitive drag-and-drop interface; the ability to mix and record as many simultaneous WAV, WMA, and MP3 files as you want; and complete control over the volume, pan, and playback rate of each individual sound. You can also import playlists (M3U, PLS) to create instant mixes of your favorite songs and export your finished mix as a RealAudio G2, WMA, or MP3 file for streaming over the Internet. Version 2.46 has bug fixes.
