Acoustica releases Mixcraft 10.5, an Innovative DAW Update for Music Creators

Latest version introduces an AI-powered stem separation option and productivity enhancements while maintaining affordability and ease of use.

Acoustica has released Mixcraft 10.5, an update to its popular Windows audio workstation software for music creators. The latest version features an AI-powered stem separation option and productivity enhancements, all while maintaining affordability and ease of use.

Mixcraft has been a go-to choice for professionals and beginners since its initial release in 2004 and is available in two versions: the entry-level Recording Studio and the Pro Studio version, which has additional tools, instruments, and effects.

Acoustica has enhanced its virtual studio in the 10.5 update — free to Mixcraft 10 owners — with even more to inspire and increase productivity. All of the improvements in Mixcraft 10.5 are centered on ease of use, stability, and innovation.

The update features new Project Templates, offering task-specific presets for tasks such as piano+vocal arrangements, podcasting setups, mastering, video editing. Mixcraft has also expanded MIDI controller support with additional scripts that support more popular gear. A new Quick Access panel enables users to quickly add, remove, and reorder instruments and effects on virtual tracks.

Behind the interface improvements is a backbone of enhanced stability and plugin support. Mixcraft’s robust Plugin Manager displays native and third-party installed virtual instruments and effects plugins, giving users several customization options to organize and navigate their VSTs more easily. And the new Auto-Save feature with user-defined intervals further reduces the risk of projects lost or corrupted due to misbehaving plugins.

The integrated Mixcraft Store tab introduced in version 10 is now packed with over 100 items from top brands, many of which are free. Manufacturers include Addictive Drums, Antares, Baby Audio, Blue Cat, Cherry Audio, D16, FabFilter, Kilohearts, Kuassa, and PSP Audioware. Soundtrack Loops, Loopmasters, and others offer a generous selection of loops and sample packs. Acoustica is also introducing a new Loyalty Credit program that rewards Mixcraft users with points they can apply as virtual cash towards purchases in the expansive Mixcraft Store.

These improvements are standard in both Mixcraft 10.5 Recording Studio and the feature-rich Mixcraft 10.5 Pro Studio.

Producers will find one of the most exciting new features exclusively in Mixcraft Pro Studio: Mixcraft’s new AI-powered Stem Separation tool. Stem Separation allows users to take a mixed audio file and quickly isolate its parts, such as vocals, piano, drums, and other instruments, into individual tracks, each ready for editing, inspecting, or replacing. Mixcraft 10.5 Pro Studio also offers powerful features like Track Regions, audio and MIDI routing, Melodyne pitch shifting, and acclaimed plugins like Cherry Audio’s DCO-106, Stardust 201, and Galactic Reverb. These features make Mixcraft 10.5 Pro Studio one of the most fully-featured DAWs available, offering extraordinary value for money.

For enthusiasts exploring the world of music production or professionals fine-tuning their latest project, the new Mixcraft 10.5 is an irresistible opportunity to upgrade their studio without the burden of complexity or cost. Current Mixcraft 10 users can enjoy a complimentary update, while newcomers can try a free, fully functional 14-day trial.

Mixcraft 10.5 Recording Studio and Pro Studio are available at special introductory prices of only $59 and $119, respectively. Upgrade pricing is available to registered users of previous versions. After April 16, 2024, prices will revert to the regular product prices of $99 for Recording Studio and $199 for Pro Studio.
