"More features than more expensive software"

June 28, 2011  |  By Zaqueo

 |  Version: Mixcraft 5.2 build 150

Pros

Offers numeorus and sometimes unlimited features for recording, music producing direct keyboarding, guitar playing, electronic wind instrument, and even more.

Cons

I had this software for more than a month and found no cons.
I tried more than 25 well known, expensive and complicated soft synths and Daws and none offered more than MixCfrat.

Summary

No other software, including the free REAPER, and KONTAKT 4 offers such ease of operation, and seemingly unlimited amount of features, and not to mention the low price.Most comparable programs are running around the 299.00 range. Kudos to Acoustica Try for free and you'll see what I mean.

"Doesn't install on 64-bit Windows"

May 23, 2011  |  By chili_picante

 |  Version: Mixcraft 5.2 build 150

Pros

Looks good on paper and seems to have the features I want.

Cons

I could not install, because it is 32-bit software.

Summary

I hope by posting this, someone can prove me wrong, so I can get this software installed. I could not install on 64-bit Windows, because of an error that says 32-bit software cannot be installed on 64-bit Vista.

Updated on Apr 18, 2012

This is my reply to spartain. It is not utter nonsense. Nowhere did a say that it would not run on 32-bit Windows. I just stated that I could not get it installed, which is a fact. I was asking for help, and you provided none at all.

"Exceptionally good."

February 28, 2011  |  By spartain

 |  Version: Mixcraft 5.2 build 150

Pros

Very easy to use;
Very good user forum;
Includes notation feature;
Also a video editor;
Includes plenty of plug-in effects and virtual instruments;
Tutorial videos on Youtube.
Carries on working (but no mix) after trial period expiry deadline.

Cons

Very occassional crashes that cause data loss.

Summary

Anyone that sees my other reviews will know that I am very demanding for perfection and hard to pleae when it comes to software, but this is one that succeeds.

This type of software is known as a DAW (Digital Audio Workstation). It is effectively a recording studio on your computer. I went through a period of downloading and trialling lots of different ones written for Windows and found them to be very difficult to figure out, ie. they had a very steep learning curve'. Then, in my internet search, I came across this Mixcraft 5.2, and my search ended. I found it really easy to figure out, because it is designed to be simply logical. It even carries on working after the trial deadline expires, although final mix-down is then disabled, but it still permits continued use, thereby giving you more time to learn how to use it before making your purchase. It comes with plenty of plug-in effects and virtual instruments, including orchestral. If you want further plug-ins you can download and load them into the program. What is also very exceptional about this software is that it includes a notation feature, which allows you to write melodies, bass runs, etc. for virtual instruments. The user forum (reachable through their website) is constantly manned by their staff and regular users, so advice is always at hand within 24 hours.

I've not tried the video editing feature, so can't comment on it. Even at the price asked it is spectacular value for money compared to the rest of the market.

If you want to sing you will need a microphone, and very likely an interface that will allow it and instruments such as a guitar to be connected to your computer. All such information will be enthusiastically supplied through the forum.

Finally, beware of many that sneer at this product. There is a breed of DAW users that dislikes this program for its simplicity, who will constantly recomment something costing many times more. Ignore them. I can assure you that once you get into this you won't want to bother with the expensive alternatives, because Mixcraft makes the whole recording process so easy.
