    If you are upgrading from Mixcraft version 2, there are a few features that are different. 
    Some of the features that you were used to in version 2 have slightly different interfaces.

    Envelope Points On Sounds
    In Mixcraft 2, you were able to add envelope points anywhere on a clip by simply clicking at that spot.  In v 2, you were able to drag an envelope line by dragging the line.  

    In the latest version, when you move your mouse over the sound, you will now see the I-Beam cursor which shows that you can make a partial selection of the sound.  You can now add points by clicking down on the envelope line.  If you want to add points anywhere on the sound, hold the Ctrl key and click down on the sound.  If you want to move an envelope line, hold down the Shift key and drag an envelope line (the cursor will turn into an up-down arrow ).

    Add an envelope point anywhere: Hold down the Ctrl key and click.
    Drag an envelope line: Hold down the Shift key and drag.
    Delete an envelope point: Hold down the Alt key and click on a point.

    More on shaping sound volume, pan and filters.

    Recording
    In Mixcraft 2, recording was limited to one track at a time.  In version 2, the new recording would be placed wherever the caret was.  In the latest version, you can 'arm' tracks and record multiple tracks at a time.  Each recording will be placed on its respectively armed track.   More on arming tracks in version 3.

    Other Changes
    The interface was dramatically changed.  The software supports low latency ASIO sound drivers.  You can now visually time stretch with FlexAudio™.  The latest version supports beat matching, tempo and key changes and will detect the beats in imported songs.
