Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 from Acoustica is a music production and multi-track recording workstation for Windows based computers that ships with thousands of music loops and fifty-five audio effects and virtual instruments. The software allows for recording audio, arranging loops, remixing tracks, composing with MIDI and virtual instruments, adding effects, scoring and editing video, and mixing and mastering tracks to create professional level projects. Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 builds on the basic Mixcraft 6 software and includes all the features of latter, while adding an additional nineteen high-end effects and virtual instruments.

The added effects include mastering technology from iZotope, G-Sonique, ToneBoosters, and Acoustica, such as the iZotope Mastering Essentials effect suite. The new Acoustica Pro Studio Reverb offers studio reverb that's easy on the CPU, and the Acoustica 31-Band EQ allows for precise and transparent frequency adjustments. X-Bass, Transient Vitaliser, Twisthead Preamp, and the FAT+ plug-in add additional sonic enhancement, while other plug-ins can warp and twist tracks in different ways. Additional effects include bit-crushing, gating, tape emulation, liquid delay, and vintage and modern parametric EQs.

The music loops, sound effects and music beds can be easily dragged and dropped into a project, combining drums, bass, and guitar loops, with synthesizer, organ, piano, vocal, orchestral and percussion loops to create custom arrangements. Set a tempo and key and the loops will automatically adjust. Acid and Garage Band loops are also supported, as are custom loop collections. Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 is fully compatible with third party DirectX and VST effects, as well as VSTi instruments.

The audio workstation can also be used for scoring and editing video. Load and edit video files and still images and easily cross−fade from one video clip to another, add transitions, and other video effects. Create slideshows from photo collections, add titles and scrolling text. Add a soundtrack and render the video project to popular formats for creating DVDs or uploading to YouTube and other popular Internet video sites.

    mixcraft pro studio 6.... i cant get the guitar to get a signal for recording. it says to chech and make sure its pluged in corect...but i dont get any signal. how do i correct it?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    If I am not mistaken Mixcraft would require a 1/4 standard guitar cable into to the1/4 input port of the of a Sonuus Midi Products G2M V2 Universal Guitar to Midi Signal Converter. Then he/she then need a midi output output cable (a MIDI output to USB input cable) from the Sonuus converter to the attach to the computer where the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation Software Mixcraft Pro Studio) would reside. They would need one of the Sonuus cables for each non MIDI output instruments they would like to process through the DAW. There are other midi converters that would work. The advantages of the is that the Sonuus is one of the better ones because it introduces less latency (CPU processing time). You do advertise carry some Sonuus products only you spell it differently!Mike K Chicago, IL
