    "Beats GarageBand which is saying a lot!"

    October 7, 2008  |   By mjrei1

    Version: Mixcraft 4.1 build 89

    Pros

    Powerful considering the price. Super intuitive.

    Cons

    None (criticsms checked at the door on this one because it's so good for so little).

    Summary

    Mixcraft 4 is the Windows/PC version of Mac's GarageBand. I have only limited use with GarageBand, however, I find Mixcraft nearly identical in layout, tools and functionality except that Mixcraft actually does a few things GarageBand does not. Ultimately any pc user jealous of Mac's bundled GarageBand need not be jealous any longer. Mixcraft is absolutely GarageBand's equal if not superior. I've been amazed at how easily I've been able to create soundtrack music for my film/video projects.

    Thanks to the guys at Acoustica! Mixcraft for the money, power and ease of use gets a well deserved 5 out of 5 stars.

    "Very good!"

    October 1, 2008  |   By tylerngataki

    Version: Mixcraft 4.1 build 89

    Pros

    It comes with built in instruments and a guitar amp simulator. It's fun experimenting with the amp to find the right kind of sound, and trying out the amp on other instruments like the brass.

    Cons

    It allows you to listen to an arrangement while you're recording live over top of it, which is handy in theory, except that there is a half second delay which makes live recording difficult to keep in time with the arrangement.

    Summary

    A much better version than the previous Mixcraft 3, while still keeping the user interface the same, so previous users will be able to walk straight into this and enjoy the new features.

    The best surprise for me was the built in virtual instruments which make composing so much easier, and it's also customizable and you are able to make your own instruments by remixing the samples provided, or other samples from other VST instruments. The mid tones of the Lyrical French Horn sound very realistic and rich, and the Black Magic Guitar is outstanding.

    With the effects provided to can experiment and play around until something clicks and you've found a new sound you like. The best effect in my opinion is the Guitar Amp Simulator (new to Mixcraft), which sounds great when added to instruments other than the obvious guitar. A Techno instrument called WurBlor sounds great with the guitar amp making high pitched vibrating squeals that work well in the middle of a Rock style arrangement. And distorting the low-mid tones of a trumpet with the guitar amp makes a very rich guitar-like sound.

    I've had trouble with the Undo function, in that if I do a lot of changes that I don't end up liking and press Ctrl+Z continuously the program freezes and you loose your work.

    Also as mentioned in the cons, the recording feature is a bit delayed. Which isn't so bad, you can just sing to your music into a microphone, and the sync it up afterwards. But when you record with the "Monitor Incoming Audio" option, so you can hear yourself or hear the guitar through the headphones, the delay makes it impossible to keep in time with the music. Vocals end up dragged out and sound very unsure. So it's best to just listen to your backing track and sing into a microphone and hope that what you sing sounds good and is in key (it doesn't come with an autotune of course)

    But overall, very well done product. It even lets you continue to use the product after the 7 day period. You can mix together all sorts of music and then eventually it will come up with a box saying "Please, just two more days", and you get another 2 free days so you can export your work to WAV or MP3...but to be nice, it would only be fair to pay the creators eventually.

    "Frustratingly USELESS!!!!"

    August 3, 2008  |   By Toymit

    Version: Mixcraft 4.1 build 89

    Pros

    This program sucked,I try to pin-point a position on a song but the cursor points to every other point that I DONT WANT.Why can you simiply make a program that does the basics right?..Flippin rubbish this is!...This is CRAP!!..Not worth the money

    Cons

    Even when moving a song to a position on the timeline,instead it makes up its own mind to put it everywhere else I dont want it to go.You cant zoom in to get the precise point in time you want your song to start/stop.

    "i dont like this one much"

    May 10, 2008  |   By brothergrims

    Version: Mixcraft 4.1 build 89

    Pros

    still affordable and very powerful for the patient. easy to learn by the simplest of users. moving sound in is a dream.

    Cons

    a list for you

    1. i hate the fact that it loops back to the begining of all the tracks after playing the shortest of sound.

    2. i hate the fact i cant just push my wheel down and pan the music, i have to use the 1984 slide bar

    3. i hate the fact that i used to be able to change songs temp but now im dedicated to the recorded tempo.
