Version reviewed: 10 on Windows

I've been using Mixcraft for over ten years. I've worked with Mixcraft 5, 7, 8, 9, and now 10, and this is by far the WORST version of Mixcraft I have EVER used. None of my samples from previous versions will carry over, a good portion of my plug-ins won't load into it, and its just not very user friendly. I used to be able to use the space bar to pause/ play, but not anymore. Sometimes the play/pause button on the screen doesn't even work. If I open a plug-in to edit it, I can't close out of it, the x doesn't do anything. Same with editing virtual instruments, so I end up with multiple tabs open that I can't close out of. I can't go into preferences. No clue why it just won't let me open it, so I have no way to switch to headphones, change MIDI preferences, etc. Honestly I tried this version out for about two weeks and then went right back to using version 9, at least that one actually works. I only paid the $39 upgrade price and I feel it wasn't worth it, I could never imagine paying full price for this garbage. I've been a loyal customer to Acoustica for most of my music career but I think it's time to just save my money and get something better like FL or Logic.

As you can see below, even with the project paused it will not let me get into preferences, ctrl + alt + p doesn.t work either I tried. I have multiple FX and instrument tabs I can't close out of. I would have left this review on Acoustica's site directly, but their site doesn't have anywhere to leave reviews, I wonder why.

Shout out your comments regarding Mixcraft. I recently purchased Mixcraft. I tried the demo some time ago, but I was waiting for a version change or price break to buy. Mixcraft just came out with Version 6.0. More importantly to me, Acoustica lowered the price of Mixcraft Pro Studio 5 to $99.99 USD WITH free upgrade rights to 6.0. That's basically only $25 more than basic Mixcraft. I bought Pro Studio because I wanted the ME80 synth. I have to admit though, the Pianissimo piano is pretty neat too.

Thanks to the Acoustica and Mixcraft team for this great update in version 10. The subtle improvements have been selected to perfection and the stability of the VST3 is fantastic. The scalable functionality for 4K and 8K monitors works impressively well. The improved design fonts are perfect. The mixer in the clear track looks formidably clear and accurate. Maybe the faders need a little tweaking to be accurate. The MIDI quanization is superior to Pro-Tools thanks.

And for me the most important thing is that when you export to 24-bit WAV the final sample has the same quality as the project inside the DAW !!!! A substantial improvement that leaves FL Studio behind (the mixdown sounds terrible if you compare it to the original), the same Studio One, the mixdown sounds dull and without dynamics. Mixcraft is out of this world! Thanks GREG and the Mixcraft Dev team.
