Mixcraft 5 Garageband for Windows

I want Garagband for my Windows laptop!

Ever wonder why everyone in the music business uses Garageband? Simply put Garageband is very easy to use so it does not get in the way of the creative process. Problem is, Garageband will never run on Windows for obvious reasons. Luckily Mixcraft 5 is in many ways identical to Garageband and not at all expensive.

Mixcraft

Acoustica, the developers of Mixcraft have a simple motto: software should be easy to use and once you have used Mixcraft you will see that every effort has been made to achieve this. Personally I have used everything from Audacity to Pro Tools and can tell you that there is a serious learning curve to these programs, which in turn kills productivity and your willingness to use them!

Simple Yet Powerful

Mixcraft is one of those programs which is just intuitive, that said it is more powerful than Garageband, so if you want to get a little more technical then you can without too much effort. A good example of this is automation..... what's that? Ever watch a song playing in a studio and see the faders on the desk move automatically, raising or lowering the level of a particular track at a certain point? Well that's just one of the many more professional things you can do with Mixcraft in a couple of clicks.

Garageband and Mixcraft Identical Twins

Mixcraft's user interface probably resembles Garageband a bit too closely! This is a real bonus for Garageband/Mac users moving to the windows platform, as almost everything you do in Garageband will be nearly identical in Mixcraft. Even if you never tried Garageband then this is an ideal place to start for a windows based home recording set up.
