User Reviews by KVR Members for Mixbus
Wow! I just read about the release of MixBus v3. The new features may be enough to change the entire DAW world. I can't wait to get the update. I'll certainly need to adjust my user review.
This tool is a joy to use. I've used it for mixdowns of live band recordings. I really really like being able to work without loads and loads of plugin user interfaces to faff around with. This product is pretty unique in its focus to deliver the analogue mixing console EXPERIENCE not just in terms of sound (which id does), but also in terms of quick/easy access to all the controls you need for mixing. This means your flow is never interrupted - you're totally focused on the MUSIC the whole time, not the software GUI. Hope that makes sense. Just give it a go and mix down a couple of songs in it to get what I mean. Just as an experiment, use absolutely no plugins at all, with EQ, Compression, and tape saturation built into the board, you can get the job done. The only time you'll need a plugin is for reverb, chorus, and delay. This would be the best tool for a busy studio thats pressed for time in getting mixes done. The editing is not too shabby. Crossfades are implemented nicely. It has stretch markers etc. I have licences to 3 other DAWs not including this one, but it always has a special place in my toolkit.
