Loaded with InstrumentsA treasure trove of realistic synthesizer emulations awaits you -- Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 comes with the virtual versions of legendary analog synths such as the Yamaha CS80, Sequential Circuits Prophet 5, and Moog Music's Memorymoog and Minimoog. The software also keys in to other must-have instruments, offering emulations of a Steinway Model D convert grand piano, B-3 organ and Leslie speaker, Vox and Farfisa combo organs, and Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos. A collection of sampled orchestral instruments, drums, synthesizers, pianos, organs, guitars, basses, and other instruments is also included, as is Acoustica's Studio Drums collection of professionally recorded acoustic and electric drum sounds.
Loops in Every GenreSo that you can get to work right out of the box, the audio production suite packs in over 6,000 loops and sound effects in a range of musical styles and genres, including dubstep, chill, hip-hop, R&B, classic rock, jazz, blues, reggae, heavy metal, Latin -- you name it. If you find yourself auditioning all 6,000 loops and FX and you're still hurting for more, you can import your own Acid and GarageBand loops into Mixcraft's loop library to round out the package.
FX That Make Your Mixes PopYou can master your music with must-have effects designed specifically for dynamics processing, multiband compression, bass and treble balancing, parametric equalization, adding warmth (think tubes and tape), and more.
