I am using Mixcraft (Recording Studio) for about a month extensively, and there was no need (for me) to read any of the documentation. I used Mulab and Reaper before. Mulab is nice but has its limitations. Reaper is also nice, but it feels like there are too many whistles, and the plugins (js) UI turns me off.

Mixcraft has some awesome tools built in. For example, I love the compressors (try the TB bus compressor) and TB de-esser. There are also synths like Messiah, Journey, VB3 organ (my favorites), and more instruments.

The UI is fine to me (1920x1080), and the program works stable. I have 600 VST plugins, and all are working fine.

Some people claim that DAWs have each their sound (like one is warmer or brighter than the other one), but that is a myth. So I would choose a DAW according to price, stability, workflow, capabilities, etc.

Yes, it's a nice DAW, and I hope Mixcraft will do well in the coming years.

Robert.

The reason why I give this DAW only 2 stars is because of the dreadful definition, colors and scale of its interface. Its tools are good to use but I can't believe how they haven't improved the definition of the graphics considering the current 4K monitors. Compared to FL Studio for example, its graphics are wonderful and it is a pleasure to use and create in a DAW with a clean and colorful image. Mixcraft 10 should be released soon, a complete new color and design polish should be released this time, or Mixcraft will never have a chance to make it to the professional DAW market again. Listen to the users.

Hi.

I agree that Mix craft is a pretty intuitive program to use - the mixer EQ could be a bit more flexibile beyond the 3 bands covered.

Anyways - nice review, a change from the 1 line 'this is great software' reviews that often pop up here.

I like Mixcraft because before when I was using FL Studio it was just too much extra stuff foe me to deal with, messing with channel racks and having to always try to remember to click in another pattern for the next virtual instrument parts, or I'd end up with some inconvenient problem.. All that was slowing down my creativity and I felt I needed to get back to a DAW that was simular enough to the past DAW's I've used that I had gotten so use to, and was quite enough more nice and easier to compose, mix, and master beats in. I found Mixcraft really quite enough easier for me to the point, that I've been moving along nicely with making beats in it. The time it's taking me to make a beat now in Mixcraft some music production software producers would probably still think to be long, but it's really still quite enough faster for sure than it was taking me in FL Studio. I'm also so glad that most of my sound processing and virtual instrument vst' plugins also work in Mixcraft.
