sw80's review"had some issues with plug ins"

Acoustica Mixcraft 6
Acoustica Mixcraft 6 is software that has 22 effects and 11 VST instruments. You can audio and video editing with this software. It is very quick and easy to install it, it will only take a few minutes to install and start using it on your Windows PC (it is only available for Windows Users). Your Windows system will need to be XP, Vista, or Windows 7. You will also have to have at least 1GHz CPU with 2 GB of RAM and it never hurts to use it with an ASIO driver to reduce glitches in the audio if you have a lot of plug-ins and effects going on at the exact same time.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

It does come with a manual, I have only looked at it once and never needed it. I just sort of figured out the Acoustica Mixcraft on my own. The Acoustica Mixcraft 6 comes with 6000 or more profession sounding patches and loops. They are all royalty free and you can use them in your music right away. You can also record an unlimited number of audio or MIDI tracks with Acoustica Mixcraft 6.

OVERALL OPINION

The Acoustica Mixcraft 6 has some really great features to it. I just didn’t like the mixer track at all, the process of arming those tracks with effects was not the way that I like to do it. Also the layout of the main screen of Acoustica Mixcraft 6 was a little weird to me, I think they could have had a better interface color too (maybe you can change it). Acoustica Mixcraft 6 just seemed more like a beginner type of program with all of the basic features. I have also had some major issues trying to run my VST instruments with Acoustica Mixcraft 6. Some of them just would not work and others would. Acoustica Mixcraft 6 was not reliable enough for me to use it as one of my main programs.

OVERALL OPINION

I use Mixcraft 6, after 5, for some months now.
I'm not doing my clever, I know nothing. I have not compared with any other similar software.
That thing, it serves me just take her (two entries at a time, limiting my card), usually vocals and guitar, with a return of headphones, then arranging a little compo then (adding recording drums, mixing, balance, duplication of a sequence, adding effects). Sometimes it is used to add instruments to a sound track to WAV is another.
All that is installed on multiple computers.
VSt side, I do not need big things, I just added an equalizer, compressor, and the rest was already there (reverb, chorus).
Must also say that I take the microphone in front of his instrument and the HP
his voice output TC HELICON boxes.
I can not tell you my life for fun :-) but just to tell you to what extent I give my opinion about this product.
Well, that is perfect for me.
PCs are a bit old (it is still a Dell running Vista with 2 G ram) but the installation was done without any problem on each.
Say that it is still better to avoid the effects of the recording if you want to return the live mix, latency quickly becomes limited.
Crash, no, never, nada.
Easy grip, my first software of its kind, and everything intuitively discovered, finally I've ever stay a minute or two to grind stuff to see how it went.
Nothing to say no more about the quality of sound and mixes obtained. The headphones (AKG K271) sound rendering is really the one who came.
And it's cheap.
I do not put aside because I have no point of comparison but I am very satisfied.

Anonymous 's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Simple and effective"

Acoustica Mixcraft 6
I installed the demo version valid 30 days. I have not encountered any inconsistency on my Quad core in w64. I have set the buffers of my sound card and I could start testing.

FITNESS / PERFORMANCE

What is surprising is the simplicity and fluidity of the sequencer.

All basic functions are fingertips without having to search through tons of sub menus.
We feel that ergonomics was thinking. Everything is clear and the interface is not overloaded info.
All my virtual were recognized. 2 concerns including 1 discovered this morning over galley
:dropoff Window
I have problems with kontakt because I do not know how to play multi timbral mode.

I have slight cracks at random when I record a virtual. Despite all the possible tests I have not found while Mia echo function nickel elsewhere. I'll get. Read I have no problem.


You can create a virtual list of favorite which quite convenient.
I have not tried all the effects, but my goal is to find the easiest and convenient sequencing without adding a lot of which I never use me and eventually overload and slow down all sequencers.

4 tabs allow access to essentials (midi, sounds, library and blender)

noon game is super simple and editing is a breeze.
Part mixing desk seems to me quite clear and has the basic functions groups under management etc ....

There is possibility to drag and drop loop or any other wav. The interface we can play in loop parts as in other specific sequencers.
the freezing of virtual tracks is included's fastest-are quite usable (Messiah) to develop a model.






NOTICE GLOBAL

That three days I use and sincerely, compared to some gas plant, this is the day and night.

In terms of simplicity, apart from Studio One, more expensive, I know of no other sequencer that is as readable.

In the quest for a sequence less than 100 euros, fluid, simple, no three tons of stuff which I never use, this one is number 1. I do not want to follow the brands, with 100 euros, offers you a you upgrade that adds a useful gizmo and 2 tons of bugs to fix. Cease fire !!

Conclusion:

Feel free to test it. If you are looking for efficiency, if you want to prepare your models quickly, MI6 is one of these sequencers that can focus on the essentials. Some will think that it is no more than another, it looks like a toy but at least it puts the record straight, at least mine: Playing and composing are no questions of issues.

* I will look into the problem of echo drivers.

Acoustica Mixcraft 6
Easy installation with no problems.
The general configuration is done via the device management (Nail planned for the occasion easily accessible)
Rare incompatibilities, software proves very stable if we observe some basic rules of good conduct (workflow management, and resource allocation)
The app runs pretty well and fully exploits the resources systems (I7 2600K 4 X 3.4 GB + 16 GB of RAM)
I made the translation into French of the software that should delight users only ... May be some refinements to improve, but overall intuitive >> please let me go back any translation errors for me to change and I pass these improvements to the team for broadcast ... cerealkilleuur@hotmail.com)
For the moment the manual is in English, fairly clear and concise.
I proposed the translation of the manual in French ... It could come very soon see the light

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

PC config: I7 2600K 4 X 3.4 GB + 16 GB RAM + NVIDIA GTX 570 + USB 2.0 Sound Card Line 6 UX2 + MIDI Keyboard Yamaha PSR 1100 + ROLAND TD3 Electronic Drum Kit + His moitorinfg KRK Rokit PR6 + Double SAMSUNG LCD display 2X 24 "inches
2 Hard drives 2TB WD 7200 Trs / min + 64 MB cache to external WD

Hardware performance: 9/10
Software Performance: 7.5 / 10

The software runs perfectly well under this configuration. Rather slight for the installation (about 140 MB).
A library of downloadable online 6200 loops is available, quite handy and well made.
Well organized, it is classified according to your choice, style, tone, tempo, date of sample etc. ...
The app offers an unlimited creation of track Vsti / Instruments audio.Ceci said, beware of greedy Vsti as Kontakt, Omnisphere, Trillian, etc ... conseomment that considerable resources
We hope the compatibility with the next most stable AU format to use.
Make sure you adjust your ASIO, often causes problems with DAW software.
Check your sound card drivers, and make them days if necessary.
No latency with my config working with MIDI

OVERALL OPINION

I use Mixcraft for nearly 5 years.
I tried before plsuieurs sequencers like Cubase, Fruit Loops, Reaper, ProTools, Logic Audio V5 PC, Acid Pro 5 and Presonus Studio One for the vast majority ..

Mixcraft is Very Very Very far the easiest to use, more ergonomic and faster to handle for efficient and high quality recordings.

In MIDI recording, the MAP is a very simple and logical to work I know.
Audio recording, simplicity and efficcité disconcerting.

What I regertte is currently the incompatible extensions AT (coming soon I think).
A tab to allocate the RAM and CPU more detail would be welcome.
Management automation is well thought out, but it remains to refine.
I essentially made on this app. Presonus Studio One comes as reinforcements to manage Vsti greediest Kontakt style.
That said Mixcraft does very well by itself ... a matter of taste ...

I remain at your disposal if need extra info!

Be careful to set your ASIO often cause problems with computer music software.
Although check your sound card drivers and update them if necessary.
