Mixcraft is a digital audio workstation that has been developed by Acoustica since its first release in 2004. Mixcraft is a multitrack recording application for Windows. This music recording software functions as a digital audio workstation, MIDI sequencer, virtual instrument host, non-linear video arranger, and music loop recording program.
Acoustica has developed two versions of Mixcraft:
- Mixcraft Recording Studio: The default version of the music software and currently download-only. The included features are unlimited audio, MIDI, video, and virtual instrument tracks. The recording studio has a loop library of 7,000 loops, samples, and sound effects.
- Mixcraft Pro Studio: The professional version that offers more variety in virtual instruments as well as audio effects. The product has been promoted for the use of professional musicians, producers, and engineers.
- MIDI: Support for MIDI data played on one or more MIDI controller keyboards.
- VSTi Support: Allows virtual instruments to be played, sequenced, and recorded via MIDI data. (Includes VST 3).
- Multitrack Recording: Allows for recordings to be created simultaneously from multiple sound card or audio interface inputs simultaneously. With a MIDI keyboard connected, it's possible to record both microphone and keyboard inputs at the same time.
- Performance Clip Sequencing: Similar to Ableton and Bitwig, it also supports pattern clip–based arrangement.
- Tempo Matching: This feature attempts to detect the tempo and key of a prerecorded audio file, and change the tempo to match the project tempo.
- Audio Time Stretching & Pitch Shifting: Mixcraft claims to use an advanced algorithm to provide high quality time stretching and pitch shifting while minimizing CPU usage.
- Multiple Import/Export Formats: Supporting MP3, WAV, WMA, OGG, FLAC, AIFF file formats.
- Video Sequencing: Editing, Adding Images, Adding Font, Automation, and Effects (Supports MP4, AVI and WMV files.).
