Just out of curiosity...
 
Many years ago, it seemed that MixW was one of the most popular multi-mode soundcard programs. It was developed by two Ukrainians and was popular not only in Europe but also here in the United States even though it was not free.

In thinking about all of the "brag files" I have seen, I can't even remember the last time I saw MixW. DM780 still appears to be the front runner, but Fldigi has really found its legs and is seen quite often.

I still see MultiPSK once in a great while especially from Europe since it is written by a French amateur. Despite its name, it really is a great multi-mode program, but the user interface is a little... umm.... "busy" for my taste.
 
So what happened to MixW? Anyone still using it?

MixW is still around and available. I still use it. MixW costs money to register ($70 for MixW3 I think) while DM780 is free - the likely reason that MixW has dropped out of the mainstream. Hams will hand over $10,000 for a new radio but think software should be free  Wink

The new version of HRD is no longer free. Older versions are though.

MixW has not really been updated for some time too. Lot of alternative options today for software too and some are much better too.
