Mixcraft 8 Recording Studio multi-track recording and music production software includes 28 audio effects and 15 virtual instruments including professional plug-ins and world-class instruments including pristine sounding emulations of classic synthesizers, rock organs, and electric pianos. Mixcraft 8 Recording Studio includes over 7500 professionally produced loops and samples, professional video-editing capabilities, a live performance mode, and one-click publishing of music and videos directly to social media sites (including YouTube, Facebook, Sound cloud, Mix cloud, Vimeo, and Tumblr). Among the new features and enhancements in Mixcraft 8 is the innovative new Audio Control system, allowing easy control of effect and instrument parameters via audio from other tracks within a project. Offering unlimited parameter control potential, this next-generation side-chaining technology enables instruments to pulse along with a beat, filters to growl as a bass line intensifies, and reverbs to swell in size as vocals crescendo. In addition, Mixcraft 8 now features live recording directly to the Performance Panel, VST3 plug-in support, MP4 video file support, support for sidechaining VSTs, global automation recording, MIDI clock/sync transmission, an integrated file browser, an improved UI with dark and light themes, and so much more. The new Mix Down to Stems feature simplifies moving mixes between studios, and the fully-customizable mixer offers many improvements, including instant effects access and multiple send knobs.
