GarageBand for Windows

download free anti virusWindows users have been waiting for many years (since 2004, in fact) for a PC version of Apple's GarageBand. Until recently, there simply was no program for Windows to match GarageBand in terms of ease-of-use, killer features and price. Alternatives were either difficult to use and limited in features or, at the other end, pro packages with a much higher price point.
This year, all that has changed. One program in particular has met the GarageBand for Windows challenge head-on: Mixcraft. Use it once and you are sold. Here at the GarageDoor we thought GarageBand would always be the undisputed leader of nearly-free recording software packages, but now even we have our doubts. This Windows program is a gem.

The name sums it up - mixing really is a craft and Mixcraft makes it easy to master. Even though we are avid GarageBand fans, we were blown away by the performance of the Mixcraft engine.

Mixcraft features

There are free programs if you really don't want to spend the $79 it costs to buy Mixcraft. Just be warned that none of these give you that beautiful "real recording studio mixing desk" feeling you get when sitting in front of Mixcraft. Or the features. Or the speed. Or the ease of use.

Sometimes, forking out a few dollars pays itself back handsomely in time saved and frustration avoided. Mixcraft deserves the acronym "GarageBand for Windows" and costs exactly the same as GarageBand: $79. (although Apple throws in other components in its iLife suite).

Convinced? Buy Mixcraft now!

Loops & Sound Effects
Mixcraft includes over 3000 music loops, sound effects, and music beds that you drag-and-drop into your project, the same way that GarageBand operates. Combine drum, bass, and guitar loops with synth, organ, pianos, vocals, orchestral and percussion loops to create your own custom arrangement. When you set the tempo and key, the loops will automatically adjust.

plus: Mixcraft supports Acid and Garage Band loops.

Instruments & Effects Mixcraft offers 8 virtual instruments, including the Acoustica Instruments General MIDI sample library, Acoustica Expanded Instruments sample library, Lounge Lizard Session vintage electric piano, VB3 tonewheel organ, MiniMogueVA monophonic analog synthesizer, Messiah polyphonic analog synthesizer, Alien303 Bass Synthesizer, and Impulse polyphonic analog synthesizer.

20 high quality effects are included, like the Pultronic Tube EQ, which models the classic tube equalizer found in studios throughout the world, and the Shred Amp Simulator, a complete suite of 5 classic amp heads, 17 cabinet models in separate windows, and 6 effects.
