    Acoustica Mixcraft 4

    Acoustica Mixcraft 4Published on 03/05/10 at 15:00
    Acoustica Mixcraft 4 is a PC-based software recording studio. Unlimited tracks, virtual instruments, loops, effects and more. I've been playing bass for 45 years.

    Three years ago, seeking to record simple demos on my PC at home, I purchased Steinberg’s Cubase 4, mainly because the software had a great reputation and I was able to get it at an educational discount. Still, the software set me back $400, and the learning curve was rather steep. I had recorded on four track analog machines for years and was familiar with tracking and overdubbing and knew computer interfaces well enough to make editing less than a chore. Still, I found Cubase frustrating and, after a few months, I pretty muc…

    Acoustica Mixcraft 4 is a PC-based software recording studio. Unlimited tracks, virtual instruments, loops, effects and more. I've been playing bass for 45 years.

    Three years ago, seeking to record simple demos on my PC at home, I purchased Steinberg’s Cubase 4, mainly because the software had a great reputation and I was able to get it at an educational discount. Still, the software set me back $400, and the learning curve was rather steep. I had recorded on four track analog machines for years and was familiar with tracking and overdubbing and knew computer interfaces well enough to make editing less than a chore. Still, I found Cubase frustrating and, after a few months, I pretty much gave up. <br><br>A friend had ProTools, but I couldn’t see sinking that kind of money into software I didn’t plan to use professionally. He also had GarageBand, but I had a PC. What to do? An Internet search led me to Acoustica Inc. and Mixcraft, 4.0. Acoustica offered a free trial, and even better, they bundled its virtual drum software, <b>Beatcraft</b>, for less than $100.

    <a href="https://www.acoustica.com">https://www.acoustica.com</a>

    I had been using Acoustica’s <b>CD Labelmaker</b> for some time and knew their software was reliable. I downloaded the trial program of Mixcraft and had a song laid down, with drums, keyboards and bass, within three hours. I bought the package the same day. I found it intuitive, easy to use, and flexible. The program is very easy to figure out and the amount of virtual instruments provided gives you great flexibility if you have even simple MIDI keyboard.

    I have no negative comments. It's a great deal and fun to use. Obviously, a large, widescreen monitor is best to get the maximum size for the interface.

    It's software, so there are no 'physical' aspects to comment on. Download and installation was flawless. It has never crashed or hung up on my current machine, which has 6GB of memory and a 2.4 GHz processor.

    Mixcraft 4 is a n very affordable, easy to use recording software package from Acoustica, Inc. I was recording and mixing within hours of downloading the free trial and purchased the same day. I expect similar results from <b>Mixcraft 5, </b>just released (March 2010) with an upgrade price of $19.95 for previous users and a first-time user price of $74.95

    install without pb
    easy config
    no inconsistency encountered - my config is very light
    not use manual - software downloaded and paid online

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    laptop lenovo thinkpad T61P W500 and before, + m-audio profire and sometimes a table yamaha 01V

    operation: nothing to say

    OVERALL OPINION

    good to start with easy, cheap etfficace
    used for 2 years to start, before discovering a little ProTools and Reaper; my first DAW soft type; to record and mix channels 6-8
    before I had to edit the wave (much) in Sound Forge, obviously audacity, or SiliconGraphics station. Mainly for the video.

    features: perhaps Voxengo plugins that are good to start with.

    Price / quality: very good, cheap and effective

    With experience, I would attack directly with REAPER, even approach "simple and cheap" but better, great community, great future. There are too many of its apps and I think that should reduce ca.

    No installation problems. Software very simple to use. Suitable for beginners.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Live platinum sound sound card, AMD Athlon 1.99 GHz, 1 GB of RAM. The software works properly with this configuration.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Value price. What I like least, failure to register the software with the serial. It will work a few weeks, then suddenly, it will ask you to register again. I do not do it again this choice.

    I had no difficulty with the installation. In fact, it is necessary to install the dmo (from the website of Acoustica), but complte time limit, and enter the codes obtained by mail APRS purchase. I regret all the same not having the physical CD (even if it is enough to burn).

    For the record, I confronted a t crash my computer (unrelated to the software) and I had to reformat. APRS authentication, online support Acoustica has shown me trsractif rexpdier cl.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for about 6 months. J'apprcie first gnrale ergonomics and quality-price ratio. It is certainly not as comprehensive as those confrres clbres more, but it is enjoyable and efficient.

    I would do without this choice hsiter.

    @ Sonic.Life: when purchasing software, we reoit Tlcharger a link to another program, Mixcraft directly related. This is the new software in which you entered the cl which dbride Mixcraft Acoustica and other software involved in the cl (in my case, also Beatcraft dbride cl).

    No installation problems. The software is very easy to use. Perfect for beginners.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Live Platinum sound card, AMD Athlon 1.99 GHz CPU, 1 GB Ram. The software works fine with my system.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Good value for money. Cons: It's impossible to register the software with the serial number. It works fine for a few weeks after registering but then it asks you to register again. I wouldn't buy it again.
