Mixcraft 9 has a couple of new options in the installer - an option to install old plugins like Classic Effects, Acoustica Effects, and the Impulse VSTi, and an option to associate old Mixcraft projects with Mixcraft 9, so you can double-click them in Windows and have them automatically open in Mixcraft 9.

You can customize what appears in the mixer, and also move items up and down by dragging on the left.

If you're noticing little clicks or pops between audio clips, you can add a teensy fade in or fade out to troublesome clips.

Or maybe you just want to go ahead and automatically add it to all new audio clips:

Some people with dual monitors noticed that Mixcraft was extremely large on the second monitor. This is because the monitors were running at different resolutions. We added a new option for this issue as of build 439. It is off by default, because not all graphics drivers may support it.

Audio control and LFO control allow you to control any parameter of any plugin with audio from a track or with a waveform, like sine or triangle.

You can enter notes about a project on the Project tab, and in Mixcraft 9, you can undock the tab by hovering over the left side of the tab header and dragging the little handle that appears.

If you select some notes, hold down the shift key and use the up or down arrow keys, you can move the notes an octave at a time.

This actually works in Mixcraft 8 as well.
