MixPad Multitrack Recording Software is a sound mixing software tool. Luckily, there are no limits to the number of tracks you can mix with this application. And not only can you record several tracks simultaneously, such as instruments and vocals, you can also load a wide range of audio and video file formats, including, but not restricted to MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC, OGG, FLAC, and MPG. Actually, it seems to support more formats than other similar tools. Moreover, the application comes with a generous library of hundreds of sound effects and music.
The application allows adding multiple audio effects, like equalization, compression, reverb, chorus, echo, and many more. Similarly, there are multiple mixing effects, such as fade-in, fade-out, and crossfade. In all cases, you have the possibility of customizing the results to fit your exact needs.
No matter how many tracks you are recording, the results are really astonishing. In all cases, the outcomes were extremely accurate, though I regret to say that the conditions were far from being those of a studio. It is good that the program supports saving the resulting mix in any of multiple file types, from uncompressed lossless formats, such as WAV, to highly compressed ones, and even MIDI. Besides storing audio in files, you can also use the application to burn audio CDs or upload your creations to the Cloud.
Although I did not have any problems while testing this tool, you should know that some issues have been reported by other users, which include some problems while exporting as well as the impossibility to play MIDI files at times.
All in all, MixPad Multitrack Recording Software has everything you need to produce studio-quality recordings and mixings. Fortunately, there is a free version that you can use at no cost for home use with some restrictions regarding available features and a number of tracks. Moreover, there is also paid home edition which does not have the VTS plugins and is limited to 12 tracks. Finally, if you want to enjoy all the features of this product, you should buy the Master’s edition.
