    "Works well for me and simple to learn. Powerful."

    October 09, 2014   |   By Bigger Fatter Politics

    Version: Mixcraft 6.1 build 269

    Pros

    Easy to learn, lots of tutorials and a good work flow. It's as good as the higher priced DAWs and for my needs better because it is stable and easy. It's built to the musicians. It has very good effects which are very easy to use and the presets make it even easier.

    For me all the VSTs I need are included. Third party VSTIs can crash DAWS.

    Cons

    Latency is an issue but there are ways around that. I have read that it has issues with interfaces but that's all DAWs. There may be problems with ASIO drivers.

    Mixcraft 6 had some serious bugs but the new build so far has been bug free based on how I use it.

    Summary

    Based on price alone it is worth it. I am not an audio engineer so I can't say for certain whether it can be used by a pro studio but based on what I have done so far as a non professional engineer I think a trained engineer could get very good results.

    The price is so low and you get so much. If you are serious about making music and not being a techno geek you will like Mixcraft. Based on other DAWs I have used and for my purposes Mixcraft is now a clear winner.

    "Unstable Crashes Frequently High Latency Pretty GUI."

    July 31, 2013   |   By CONSSTINK

    Version: Mixcraft 6.1 build 269

    Pros

    Looks good and is very intuitive and that's it.

    Cons

    Crashes frequently and is very buggy. Gets very unstable after 8 tracks. Most drum loops are unusable.

    Mixcraft could be a good hobbyist's DAW but as it stands now it is even too unreliable for that.

    Summary

    Mixcraft could be a 10 but it is like a gorgeous woman who's an unstable high maintenance psycho. It's a ZERO!

    Come on Acoustica, fix the latency and the stability problems even if it means removing some features.

    "Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 - Huge Performance, Mild Price"

    May 22, 2013   |   By BrotherCharles

    Version: Mixcraft 6.1 build 269

    Pros

    - BEST-in-CLASS plug-in performance.

    - Gentle learning curve and Easy-to-Use!

    - Unlimited number of tracks (audio and midi).

    - No limits on how many VST effects can be loaded per track.

    - Affordable.

    - Good quality bundle of effects and virtual instruments.

    - Unique preset management.

    - Natively render output as MP3, OGG, WAV and WMA.

    - Load video and work directly with AVI and WMV audio tracks.

    - Large loop library.

    - Attractive user interface.

    - Highly intuitive workflow design.

    - Smooth, precise knobs and sliders.

    - Well-written user's manual.

    - Friendly, proactive product support.

    - Regularly updated and maintained.

    - No dongles, call/response challenges, nor invasive piracy protection overhead.

    Cons

    - Only available as a 32 bit, Windows only DAW.

    - No Side-chaining.

    - I couldn't actually find "the kitchen sink" . . . *Grin.

    Summary

    Now in its sixth generation, Acoustica have upped the ante considerably with the ability to add multiple "lanes" on any single channel, improved VST crash isolation, multi-out VST support, improved midi/piano roll editing, multiple bus outputs, and ReWire integration. The standard version is an incredibly affordable option for anyone; from teenage producers to hobbyist retirees. Don't be fooled though, Mixcraft delivers a lot of "professional bang for the buck" and is much, much more than a beginner's novelty app.
