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 8 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!
Mixcraft 8 Pro Studio 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 new virtual analog synthesizer based on algorithms from hardware VA synthesizers with immense programming possibilities - a veritable goldmine of powerful analog and digital timbres!
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
