Acoustica's inexpensive and easy-to-use sequencer, Mixcraft, continues to receive raves and praise from audio experts and editors alike.

The newly launched DAW is an affordable multi-track audio and MIDI recording studio that enables you to compose original music, record, create podcasts, and remix songs. Use it as a multi-track recorder or as a music loop remix program. Now available from Howaudio.com is "Mixcraft 4: The Essentials" for the astounding price of $24.95US! Or, become a member-subscriber to Howaudio.com ($199/annually or $19/monthly) and get this title, plus complete access 24/7 to every tutorial in HowAudio's library - over 1100 movies on over 40 topics - with new titles added weekly.

Over the course of the "Mixcraft 4: The Essentials" 81-minute tutorial, renowned engineer Jeff Dykhouse shows you the in-and-outs of this multi-track recording studio. It covers the following topics: Soundcard Setup, Creating A Song Using Loops, Adding Markers, Using Virtual Instruments, Recording Audio, Using Effects Plug-Ins, Creating Mash-Ups, Re-Mixes and DJ Mixes, Automation Features, and Mixer and Sharing Your Project.

As a multi-track audio recording program, Mixcraft allows you to record and play multiple tracks of audio and MIDI virtual instruments at the same time. Add effect processing such as reverb, delay, guitar amp simulator, flanger or any 3rd party VST or DirectX effects. Hook up a MIDI keyboard and you can play a whole studio full of virtual synthesizers.

As remix software, Mixcraft 4 supports Apple Loops, Acid Loops and HowAudio's own custom loop format. Mixcraft's Song Kits allow you to create your own song in dozens of styles to sing along or rap to. Creating your own loop or extracting a loop from a well-known song is a few clicks away. When you've finished your project, mix down your music to CD or MP3 directly in Mixcraft. Even with all this power, Acoustica engineers have kept the design easy-to-use and clean.
