PluginBotique is running a great sale on the SONiVOX Singles Bundle. You get ten VST’s for only $24.99. If you’re looking for an affordable way to add a few good instruments beyond the MixCraft presets it’s quite a bargain IMO.
You get an FM piano, Classic Bass Guitar, Clean Electric Guitar, Blue Jay Drums, Session Drums 1, Harmonica, Taylor Acoustic Guitar, Harpsichord, and two different “world style” percussion VST’s.
They all have their own presets, and adjustable parameters. They sound pretty good too.
Yamaha MOXF6, Roland Juno-Di, Casio MZX-500, Roland RS-70, M-Audio Venom, M-Audio Hammer-88, Casio PX-330, Behringer Studio Monitors, Mixcraft 8 Pro, Fujitsu T901 (i5, 8GB Ram, 64-bit, SSD), Lots of VST’s
