Oakhurst, CA (December 18, 2014)—Acoustica has released two new upgrades to its Mixcraft software: Mixcraft 7 and Mixcraft Pro Studio 7, which include new features such as 32-bit and 64-bit versions, a new interface, live loop and sample triggering, audio warping and quantizing, enhanced control surface support, plug-in management, new loops and samples, new virtual instruments and effects, and more.
The new Performance Panel is intended for composing and performing music both live and in the studio, allowing real-time triggering and automatic synchronization of audio loops, MIDI clips and samples. The Performance Panel can be manipulated using Novation's Launchpad controller, a MIDI controller, mouse or computer keyboard. Mixcraft 7 features support for Mackie-compatible control surfaces, as well as Frontier Design Group's Tranzport control surface, and can be configured to work with any MIDI controller. Mixcraft 7 can also be controlled from across the studio using the free Mixcraft Remote app for iOS and Android devices.
Mixcraft 7 is designed for home and project studios, featuring unlimited MIDI and audio tracks, dozens of virtual instruments and effects, video editing, mixing and mastering, a streamlined interface, and more than 7,000 loops, sound effects, and drum samples. Version 7 includes two new samplers—the Alpha Sampler and Omni Sampler—and two new virtual instruments: G-Sonique's Renegade Analog Monster and AAS's Journeys instrument.
Mixcraft Pro Studio 7 is aimed at advanced home and professional project studios. Highlights include BeatRig's Sidekick 6 sidechain compressor, Studio Devil's Virtual Bass Amp, QuikQuak's Glass Viper, and ME80 V2, plus a suite of new mastering effects from G-Sonique.
