Mixcraft Has Improved

While Cubase, Adobe Audition, Protools, Reaper, Presonous Studio One, FL Studio, Logic still suck Mixcraft has improved. Mixcraft 6 was a buggy POS but 6.1 is vastly improved. While latency is still and issue the stability is pretty good. I hope that this blog had something to do with the engineers at Acoustica getting their shit together and fixing the bugs. I hope this echoes through the rest of the industry.

The fact is, most of the high priced/over priced DAWs are not as good as Mixcraft 6.1 when it comes to stability, user friendliness and work flow. At this point I have to say that Mixcraft 6.1 is worth the price. Mixcraft has an analog feel and that makes it nice.

I don't recommend any DAW and your experience with Mixcraft 6.1 may vary but it now functions fairly well. I would say that it is a good tool for most singer songwriters and composers. Can it be used for professional mastering? Maybe. It's mastering tools are descent and in some ways its better than the expensive DAWs but that may be a matter of opinion.



Mixcraft is easy to use and unlike most other DAWs it has some decent tutorials.

    1. Propellerhead Reason 7 seems pretty good but is is pricey. Garage Band is good but it is not as powerful as Propellerhead. Both are stable.

  2. Mixcraft is much improved. It's still a bit buggy but more stable. I use it and most of the time it works well. It kicks the shit out of studio one. I hope they keep improving. It is by far the most intuitive DAW out there.

    Reaper suck ass. Reaper is the biggest scam out there,

    1. Thank you. I´ve never used a DAW. I need a good, professional program but simple enough to start with and Mixcraft seems to be ideal.

  3. The fact of the matter is a lot of DAWs suck and I really think that this blog lit a fire under Acoustica, I hope the other DAWs follow suit.

    I think that for most singer songwriters and bands who want pro quality demos Mixcraft is the obvious choice. If you want top quality your need to go to a studio with a good engineer but Mixcraft can get you close. Mixcraft 6 was really buggy but now it is working well for me. You definitely get your money's worth.
