What is Mixcraft?
Mixcraft is a multitrack
recording application for Windows.
This music recording software functions as a
digital audio workstation, MIDI sequencer, virtual
instrument host, non-linear video arranger, and
music loop recording program.
Mixcraft is incredibly easy to
use. Unlike some applications which have
been designed with the engineer in mind, Mixcraft
has been designed for the Musician yet still
contains all of the important funcionality you
would find in more expensive products.
Mixcraft makes an ideal partner
to Band in a Box. Tracks
created in Band in a Box can be
easlty imported into Mixcraft where you can edit
and add effects and incorporate additional
instruments and vocal tracks. There are
examples in the Et Cetera TV
section of this website.
