Comparing Mixcraft 5 to GarageBand. Pros and cons.
As you compare home recording software you will find many options – some of which are better than others. Two that stand out amongst the competition are Mixcraft 5 and Garageband, part of the iLife suite from Apple.
GarageBand ’11, from Apple, has a loyal following. After all, Apple products are all the rage and many people will purchase them simply because of the name. While this software has a lot to offer, it comes up short in many ways when compared to the features of Mixcraft 5.
Here are several features of Mixcraft 5 that GarageBand does not yet offer: plays acid loops, unlimited effects per track, noise removal, layer and split multiple virtual instruments per track, and transmit MIDI data to external MIDI devices.
Mixcraft 5 also includes more than 3,300 professional music loops and sound effects. This is in comparison to only 1,600 with GarageBand.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of Mixcraft 5 over the competition is the small learning curve. You will not have to spend hundreds of hours learning the finer details of the program and how to use the features. Instead, a simple interface makes it easy for everybody, from beginner to digital musician pro, to get started.
