The new Mixcraft 9 mixer has a sleek streamlined look. We've removed some color so its easier to see what's active. Knobs now show how far they've been adjusted via a new outer ring. You see at a glance if EQ parameters have been adjusted, or whether any FX sends are active. This improves your workflow so you can spend less time fussing with software and more time focusing on your music.
Every track now has its own built-in gain, compressor, and drive. Your workflow just got faster!
Gain: This is a handy “initial gain” control, as seen on hardware mixing boards. Use it to adjust super quiet or hot signals.
Compressor: This is a handy “one-knob” compressor for taming transients. At lower settings, it works especially well for vocals, guitars, and bass, and it’s great crushing drum loops at higher settings.
Drive: The Drive control introduces natural “mixing console”-style saturation, from a little to fair amount of raunch. It’s voiced for a warm, natural tone.
In addition to the basic three-knob EQ, more advanced users can choose Mixcraft 9’s full featured four-band Parametric EQ. The high and low band are semi-parametric with switchable shelf or bell mode, while the two mid bands are fully parametric - this means that in addition to sweepable frequency selection, they each have variable bandwidth (aka, “Q”). The frequencies of all bands overlap as well. We think you’ll find Mixcraft 9’s channel EQ to be tremendously useful and flexible.
