Acoustica at Gear Expo 2024: The New Mixcraft 10.5 – The DAW Where Innovation Meets Value for Desktop Music Producers

GEAR EXPO 2024: Mixcraft is Acoustica's highly-acclaimed audio workstation (DAW) software for Windows that offers a perfect balance of value and user-friendliness for music creators. Mixcraft has been a go-to choice for professionals and beginners since its initial release in 2004. The latest version, Mixcraft 10.5, introduces many new refinements and innovations, such as AI-powered stem separation.

In 2023, the introduction of Mixcraft 10 transformed the software into a more intuitive and feature-rich digital audio workstation. Mixcraft 10 received critical acclaim from MusicRadar, who praised its exceptional value and called it "one of the best music apps out there in terms of features vs. price." Mixcraft has two versions: Recording Studio and Pro Studio, which offers more power tools, instruments, and effects.

Some of the new features in Mixcraft 10.5 include Project Templates, which offer task-specific presets for tasks such as podcasting setups, mastering, video editing, and more. MIDI controller support has been expanded, and the new Quick Access panel enables users to quickly add, remove, and reorder instruments and effects on virtual tracks.

Behind the interface improvements is a solid backbone of enhanced stability and plugin support. Mixcraft's robust Plugin Manager displays native and third-party installed virtual instruments and effects plugins, giving users several customisation options to manage and navigate their VSTs more easily.

The Mixcraft Store tab, introduced in version 10, now offers over 100 items from top brands, many of which are free. Manufacturers include Addictive Drums, Antares, Baby Audio, Blue Cat, Cherry Audio, D16, FabFilter, Kilohearts, Kuassa, and PSP Audioware. Soundtrack Loops, Loopmasters, and others also offer a great selection of loops and sample packs.
