Acoustica Unveils Mixcraft 10

Acoustica has released Mixcraft 10, a major update to their digital audio workstation (DAW) for Windows, designed to provide music producers with an inspiring and easy-to-use platform.

“Every improvement in Mixcraft 10 is centered on inspiration, ease of use, and stability,” said Acoustica CEO Joseph Clarke. “We’ve made sure that every feature in this version is designed to make creating music easier and more enjoyable.”

Here’s what they have to say about Mixcraft 10:

“Mixcraft features almost universal third-party plug-in support and supports audio interfaces and hardware controllers. Mixcraft’s loop library has over 7,500 professionally-produced loops, music beds, sound effects, and samples in diverse genres. A vast library of effects and instruments includes a suite of reverbs, compressors, filters, equalizers, classic synthesizers, electric pianos, rock organs, and sampled instruments.

Mixcraft is also loaded with routing and control features, advanced MIDI routing, and clip-based automation tools. Its Performance Panel is ideal for live performance and loop-based composition, and it is also a feature-packed video editing environment that offers seamless transitions, titles, and scrolling text. Mixcraft provides an all-in-one solution to all your audio and video editing needs in a single virtual studio package.

Mixcraft 10 includes several improvements that provide users with a highly customizable experience that puts them in complete control of their creative process. Menus have been simplified and can now be pinned open. The project start window, plug-in manager, piano roll, automation tools, libraries, and mixer panels have all been enhanced. Additionally, users can customize project settings, plug-in collections, and hotkey assignments, and broader support for controller surfaces has been added.

The newly integrated Mixcraft Store makes finding and accessing new audio loop libraries, instruments, effects, and even entire projects effortless. With many free products available, musicians can easily add premium products to their recording experience with just a few clicks.

Mixcraft 10 is available in two value-packed versions: the entry-level Recording Studio and the advanced Pro Studio. Mixcraft 10 Pro Studio includes dozens more instruments, effects, and utilities and adds impressive innovations, such as the new Track Regions feature that makes light work of retooling song arrangements. The result is a top-of-the-line DAW that is intuitive and stable, allowing musicians to realize their musical goals faster and with professional-level quality.”

Mixcraft 10 is available now in two versions, with the following pricing:

  • $79 for Mixcraft 10 Recording Studio

  1. I was very happy to see this announcement. For over 15 years, Mixcraft has been my “backup” DAW. In the Mid 2000s, when I was the “SONAR review guy” for a major music publication, I was asked to review Mixcraft 3. I was enormously impressed with “the little DAW that could”. I continued to annually review both DAWs through SONAR “Platinum” and Mixcraft 8. Although, from a feature standpoint, SONAR (and now Cakewalk by Bandlab) has always been the more comprehensive DAW, I have never found, in practical use, anything that I really wanted to do with SONAR that I couldn’t (more easily) do with Mixcraft. Additionally, from Version 4 on, Mixcraft possessed video editing capabilities better than any other contemporary DAW (except possibly MOTU’s Digital Performer). While many of the “new” features appear to be “icing” type enhancements, the new plug-in handling system corrects the only major flaw I have continuously found with Mixcraft (although, even before the fix, Mixcraft’s handling of VST plug-ins was far superior to Ableton Live’s).

    The one thing in the video that greatly piqued my interest was ther display of all of the Cherry Audio plug-ins on the screen while the moderator was discussing “instruments”. Given that Dan Goldstein is a primary in both the Cherry Audio and Acoustica companies, it is hard to determine how much (if any) of the Cherry Audio stuff will be included with Mixcraft Pro. Clearly, bundling the Cherry Audio plug-ins would be of great advantage to Mixcraft.

    At any rate, I have been anticipating this new version of Mixcraft. I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

  2. Mitchell, I have four Cherry Audio synths and they do a lot of heavy lifting, with great sound and readily managed GUIs. Anything that bundles your synths is adding a lot of value to the deal. CA’s Memorymode (Moog) is a thing of well-muscled beauty! 😛
