      Acoustica

      Powerful music creation and recording tool.

      Acoustica debuted Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 at the 2012 NAMM show and released it officially in late spring. The Mixcraft name has always been known as a well-equipped, highly intuitive audio recording program that orients itself at an affordable price point, and Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 is the most capable version yet.

      It contains many critical features for an audio program like graphic equalizers, compressors, limiters, room emulation, guitar effects, et cetera, but Mixcraft 6 also includes more sophisticated effects like pitch correction, parametric EQ, guitar amp and cabinet emulations, and other signal oprocessing that is often found in standalone programs.

      There is also a mastering section that features common tools for finalizing recordings. New in this iteration is a great-sounding studio reverb, a 31-band equalizer, and a sophisticated delay. In addition to its own proprietary mastering tools, it also features the new iZotope™ Mastering Essentials plug-in.

      Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 ships with the Acoustica Instruments collection, which includes orchestral instruments, guitars, bass, drums, synthesizers, pianos, organs and more, all mapped to General MIDI. The Acoustica Expanded Instruments collection goes heavier into synth timbres with a wide selection of complex pads and washes, and a stunning grand piano called “Pianissimo Virtual Grand Piano.”

      The vintage keys library includes Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos, MiniMoog, Prophet 5, Hammond B-3 organ, along with Vox and Farfisa organs for just the cheese you need. Mixcraft Pro Studio also includes detailed MemoryMoog and Yamaha CS-80 synthesizers. There is an additional drum library as well, rounding out an surprisingly complete set of music creation timbres in addition to a wide selection of audio editing tools.

      It is compatible with nearly any VST effect or VSTi instrument plug-in, and works with Acid and Garage Band loops. Mixcraft hosts ReWire applications to control other DAWs, sequencers, and drum machines, and sync everything. Mixcraft is compatible with virtually any FireWire, USB, or internal audio device, using Wave, WaveRT, or ASIO drivers.

        Comments about Acoustica Mixcraft Pro Studio 6:

        First of all, I got a new Windows 7 computer for it. Tracking down a latency that didn't sound like a 1954 Elvis record was very difficult, absolutely NO support from the company after several attempts. The plug-ins have a "toy" like feel, not really that good. It started locking up constantly, the cursor in the screen wouldn't move. I bought a registry repair for my computer, ran all the diagnostics I could fine, my new computer is fine. I deleted and reinstalled the program, it worked for about 30 minutes than the same thing. I even reinstalled Windows, same. The company says "Software should be easy" well Mixcraft, in my experience was NOT. It wasn't stable, you had to click the mouse sometimes repeatedly to get something to work. To put it mildly: this junk program was NOT worth the 3 months of research and troubleshooting that I put into it. I'm going to try something else. Get this for your nephew for christmas, maybe, because it's not much more than a toy, I''m sorry to say.

        Because of the old XP OS I'm running this on, it does freez at times but quickly snaps out of it. I was able to remix and master some tunes I had worked on in my TASCAM digital recorder. The software give you MUCH more control of the mix and master process. The 31 band EQ is a life-saver!

          Comments about Acoustica Mixcraft Pro Studio 6:

          I Like this software far better then Sony acid studio, Band in a box, and others. Never thought loops would be all that great, but I have used them a lot in my own songs. The learning curve isn't too bad. I wrote a ROCK OPERA in a week! I love the large supply of effects processors, and have improved my QUALITY in my recordings. I also like the work space, the "Desktop", because it is layed out to make work flow easily. I DO wish that you could change tempos, with the loops, and you can with some...but not all.I can do more interestuing things, using this software, and creativity is reallty the bottom line. I use this software more then any other, and I am creating things that are LIGHT YEARS ahead of what I used to do!!!! You know how you are always looking for a software tool to create fantastic songs with? Something that is also affordable? This may be it. It was for me. The interface allows for quick adjustments for all the aspects of the song you are working on. There is a decent loop library...good enough to actually get my attention, and interest, because when I add some loop to my own composition... my work ends up being a LOT better. I would, and HAVE recommended this to many friends, because it is very useful for me. Here is an example:

            the only thing i found lacking in this product was the ability to produce studio quality beats....thats it....you can get the same or better vocal sound with this software as protoo;s or cubase.....GREAT vocal suite with compressors and reverb of the highest quaility....this contains the REWIRE feature which allows you to link it with other programs, so i link it wirh reason essentials 1.5 and im able to produce studio quaility beats and use mixcraft for the vocals....its a match made in heaven, and its got my friends puzzled....they run protoolsHD in a semi-professional studio and CAN NOT COME CLOSE TO THE SOUND i am getting from these two programs together...great job acoustica, OUTSTANDING

                  I love MIXCRAFT!!!! i've tried cubase and sonar, the are both a pain in the but. you have to do so many different things just to accomplish one task, for instance using a control surface, or the VST connections. Mixcraft pro is so simple and effective, not to mention had thousands of loops in its library, PLUS a grip on instruments you can use. if your a begginer or just done with the headache of other DAWs then buy mixcraft!

                        I have set myself up with a small home studio and after getting all the pieces it was time to get a good DAW and there are so many choices out there. I would have liked to go with the industry standard Pro Tools but I didn't want to drop the money required to get it because after all this home studio of mine it's a hobby and I've already dropped plenty on all the other components like guitars, amp, microphone, monitor, recorder, midi controller, etc.
                        I had a chance to try Mixcraft 6 for free and I just fell in love with it , it is very easy to use , easy to navigate and figure out. I have used Pro Tools, and I gave Reaper a try and for what I use it for I couldn't be happier with Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 which is by the way what I ended up getting instead of Mixcraft 6, the price it's twice as much but I think it's worth every penny.
                        This program has everything anybody needs to get your studio going and I think they give the big boys in the industry a run for their money.
