Mixcraft 3.0

Post by Gman » Sat May 13, 2006 8:15 am

Just a thought I keep having-

I (at this point) have no need for multi-track recording. I enjoy the ease and simplicity of the the current Mixcraft and the single track recording it offers. I have tried other software in the past that offered multi-track recording and it seemed to complicate things quite a bit.

Is there a chance that there can be both a Mixcraft (as we know it) and maybe a Mixcraft Pro version that offers the multi-track features? I'm a bit worried that adding the multi-track feature will mess up some of the things that I like so much about Mixcraft.

Oh, I have to add another question to GMan's.

Is Mixcraft 3 a free upgrade from Mixcraft 2?

When version 3 comes out, you do not HAVE to use multi-tracking, you can continue to use it as you currently do.
I am not sure if it will be a free upgrade, but i am thinking not.
A major version of just about any software is a paid version or an upgrade.

The updates and patches to fix software bugs are free, but a whole new version of the software is another product/consumer good and would not be fair for the developers/business to give away for free. The price of Mixcraft has always been under 100 dollars anyway which is a great value for what the software can do. Cant wait for 3.0, since 2.5 was perfect for my needs minus some minor nitpicks.

For vocals or an acoustic instrument, yes you need a microphone.
For electric instruments such as guitars, bass, keyboards, you can plug straight in to your soundcard.
