The ultimate desktop software app for pro-level mixing and mastering! With 6 additional virtual instruments and 28 additional effects, Mixcraft Pro Studio features over $1250 worth of plug-ins - the complete package for "record-ready" productions with incredibly realistic instruments and superlative audio processing capabilities. For a list of all instruments and effects, view the comparison chart below.

Integrated Melodyne Tuning Software
Celemony’s groundbreaking Melodyne tuning software sets the standard as the most natural-sounding and easiest to use vocal tuning software available. Mixcraft Pro Studio takes it one step further by integrating Melodyne Essential directly into Mixcraft’s clip sound edit window (and eliminating time-consuming audio “transfers”). Whether you’re simply touching up intonation, or moving notes to wildly alter performances, vocal pitch editing has never been easier!

Stunning Synths
The music app adds painstakingly modeled virtual analog and digital professional synthesizers. Memorymoon is a spot-on recreation of the Moog Memorymoog’s crushing analog fatness. ME80 Version 2 is a killer model of the classic Yamaha CS-80 synthesizer, now with a gorgeous new user interface and a whole new sound engine. Kastelheimer Veldberg XD is a new virtual analog synthesizer based on algorithms from hardware VA synthesizers with immense programming possibilities - a veritable goldmine of powerful analog and digital timbres!

Peerless Piano
Pianissimo is an incredibly playable and realistic virtual piano. Combining 250 MB of high-quality Steinway™ Model D piano samples with advanced physical modeling, Pianissimo recreates the warmth, response, and playability of a real grand piano. With modeled sympathetic resonance, incidental mechanical hammer sounds, remarkable tonal control, and velocity response, 256 voices of polyphony, and incredibly low CPU usage, Pianissimo Virtual Piano lends an air of class and realism to any project.

Superior Mastering Tools
Your tracks will reach a new level of audio fidelity with an awesome array of mastering plug-ins. Add a professional sheen with the iZotope Mastering Essentials suite. EQ to perfection with TB Parametric EQ or GSXL4070 Parametric, replicating the equalizer section of one of the world’s most coveted mixing consoles. Impart analog tape compression and punch with Ferox Tape Emulator. Create bangin’ dance remixes with SideKick6 Sidechaining Compressor.

Vacuum Tube Virtuosity
Who doesn’t love the warm, smooth sound of tubes? It delivers a knockout punch of tube-modeled effects with the Pentode Audio Series featuring the VTC-1 Vacuum Tube Compressor, TRW-1 Vacuum Tube Triode Warmer, PSEQ-1 Vacuum Tube Passive EQ, and VBE-1 Vacuum Tube Bass Enhancer. Treblecream smoothes harsh high frequencies to perfection, while FAT+ combines analog warmth, vacuum-tube distortion, and tape saturation into a single effect for enormous-sounding tracks.

Innovative Sound Shapers
Recreate the grunge of 8-bit video games and 12-bit samplers with TimeMachine Bit Crusher. Build lush, three-dimensional sonic spaces with Fusion Field’s convolution reverb technology. Inspire sonic anarchy with Dubshox Multi-Band Distortion, featuring over 40 types of distortion and shapers. Recreate the warm, smooth, trippy textures of early tape-based delay systems with the VTD-42 Psychedelic Delay.

And So Much More!
Boost your bass to the max with XBass Bass Enhancer. Enhance stereo imaging with Mid-Side Harmonic Vitaliser+. Add grunge and warmth to vocals with Twisthead VS-206 Preamp. The list goes on and on!
