Mixcraft 8
A New Standard For Performance

Mixcraft 8 is driven by a new, lightning-fast sound engine, featuring
advanced audio and MIDI routing, native sidechaining, and Audio Control,
an innovative new feature allowing audio signals to control instrument
and effect parameters.
Comprehensive support has been added for
VST3 plug-ins and MP4 video, both must-have formats in professional
studio environments. Mixcraft 8 is packed with high-end features
including live performance panel recording, nested submixes,
track grouping, and so much more. We’ve even
integrated Melodyne pitch correction directly into Mixcraft 8 Pro
Studio’s interface for flawless vocal performances.

Live Performance

Rock the house with automatically synced, non-stop
audio and MIDI clip grooves using the amazingly flexible Performance
Panel. Create mixes and mashups with audio warping and song slicing.
Manipulate the Performance Panel under your fingers with a
Novation Launchpad, MIDI controller, or even your
computer’s keyboard, and jam along with Mixcraft’s powerful virtual
instruments. Record loops directly to Performance Panel grid locations
for instant creation of layered live loop performances.

MIDI Scoring and Editing

It’s never been easier to compose your own beats,
patterns, and musical scores. Build custom beats and musical patterns at
lightning speed using the fun and creative new step sequencer. Create
and edit performances with the powerful
piano roll editor. Use the notation editor to write,
view, publish, and print professional-quality music scores.

Instruments and Effects

Get ready for a plethora of virtual instruments,
including emulations of classic synthesizers, rock organs, and electric
pianos. Build your own beats and sounds with the exclusive new Omni and
Alpha Samplers that redefine ease of use. Master your
tracks with a tremendous array of outstanding
professional effects. Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio is packed with over $1250
worth of additional plug-ins, including Melodyne Essentials, Celemony’s
astounding pitch correction and editing suite, which goes beyond the
plug-in realm with full integration into Mixcraft’s audio editor window.

Video Editing

Mixcraft is more than just a blockbuster DAW - it’s
also a feature-packed pro video editing and scoring environment. Load
and edit video files and still images with ease. Crossfade video clips,
create transitions, and add a professional
touch with fantastic video effects. Rapidly create
slideshows from photo collections. Add titles and scrolling text.
Publishing enables rendering, uploading, and promotion of music and
video projects directly to social media sites such as YouTube, Vimeo,
Facebook, Soundcloud, and more!
Mixcraft 8 now supports MP4 audio and video in
addition to WMV and AVI formats.

Mixing and Mastering

View and edit multiple parameters simultaneously
with powerful lane and clip-based automation. Use any MIDI hardware
controller to automate and record dozens of mixer, virtual instrument,
and effects parameters. Mixcraft offers support for a vast array of
hardware control surfaces,
including Mackie Control-compatible hardware,
