Product Description

For all the music lovers and Windows users, MAGIX Music Maker is the substitute to the popular Mac application GarageBand. It may not be so popular, because is quite new on the market, but it works in the same way as its opponent. Simply combine audio building blocks (more than 1,500 to choose from) onto 64 audio tracks (available in the Standard version or 96 available in the Premium version), add effects & samples, play real instruments via MIDI and even record your own instruments in order to create a unique composition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Magix Music Maker 16 22 July 2010
By Jon133

Hey there,

Just a quick review really... basically i wasnt sure whether to go with this software due to the number of reports of it crashing so frequently. But actually its not too bad, it does crash occasionally at first but you have to be a wee bit gentle with it. I mean it only crashes really when you listen to the different midi's available too quickly but apart from that its perfect. The functions available are top notch and as are alot of the midi's that come with the software, but i also do feel the software should have come with a few more sounds in some cases, where it does seem quite inadequate... so i will probably buy more sounds from the website to improve this...

Anyway i hope this was helpful

I've been using Music Maker since 2006 and it's the best software I know for making music at home. Easy to edit. Easy to record. Easy to export. Very user friendly. This version already fit my needs (Simple audio mixing and playing some of the integrated instruments via midi). Some times I use it's video part for uplaoding a song to youtube.

Serious musicians no doubt sneer heartily at Magix, but for the rest of us it's a fairly easy sample-based music composition suite. The interface is slick in either Easy or Advanced mode. Samples are drag-and-drop, and if you buy Magix with three or four of its add-on Soundpool DVDs (i.e.: extra content packs) then you should have a decent range of samples to work creatively with. Be warned though, that Soundpool's so-called "Ambient" packs are not cool Eno-style ambient music, but some sort of horrible American elevator music. Samples suitable for Eno-style ambient music are there, but they tend to be scattered across a wide range of Soundpool packs. Indexing of around 25Gb of installed Soundpool content packs was quick, at just a couple of minutes. You can also import your own .wav and .mp3 files. Samples can be changed using FX or have their length altered. Manipulating and moving the samples once they're in the mix is easy. There's also a good deal of power under the hood, with all sorts ways to fine-tune samples and use drum machines and software synths. The Premium version provides more of these, and also includes an audio editor, support for VST / VSTi instruments, more sound packs as standard. There is also an XXL version of Magix, which actually comes with a real USB musical keyboard. I found the speed of sample preview and general playback were excellent on a Windows 7 quad-core PC with a dedicated Creative Audigy SE soundcard fitted. I'd guess that gripes about frequent crashes are probably coming from those trying to use Magix with puny "onboard" sound chips? The samples themselves are all high quality, and even the vocals are tolerably good (enough to give your real vocalist some ideas to work with). Export of the final song is simple. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars Vst vst vst 10 Sep 2010
By Herc
Whats the problem?? No third party VST hosting! This means that in this version your VST's are limited to the handfull that are already in this programm. Apparently if you wanted to add your own choice of third pasty Vst's you have to buy the Premium Version of this software which also comes with a real MIDI CONTROLER KEYBOARD(Check Price). Removing that Third party VST Hosting facility is to me a backward step by Magix and in doing this they could be putting their reputation for flexible versatility at risk. It's a shame. I was up to Magix Music Maker 12 delux. I had a problem with my pc and uninstalled it but when I was ready to reinstall could'nt find the disk. I thought that vers 16 would be an improvement. Now since I cant use the 400-600 worth of third party Vst's which I have bought over the years with Vers 16 of MMM, I have reverted to MMM11. Im dissapointed at this move. For what it is, MMM16 is sort of ok but definately NOT WHAT I HAD IN MIND :(
Im thinking of trying Pro Tools next time and with them you have the inconvienience of a usb dongle.
Yes, I'm never happy

4.0 out of 5 stars Magix 1 May 2010
By Fat Sue
I need to record spoken CDs and had the Music Studio 2004 software which worked really well - I only upgraded because I moved to Windows 7 and that software doesn't work on 7. I've used it a couple of times now and it is as simple to use, just a little new as yet. No significant problems with it but not amazed either.

1.0 out of 5 stars Promises much but fails to deliver 9 Oct 2010
I've used previous versions of Magix and usually found it fairly easy to work with. The drag and drop system of loop manipulation suited me as it was uncomplicated and very quick to pick up. I've used DAW's like Cubase and Fruity Loops but still preferred Magix which didn't get bogged down with tech-speak. I recently upgraded my laptop to a Windows 7 machine and much to my disappointment previous versions of Magix didn't work on it. I purchased Magix Music Maker 16 because it supported Windows 7. It is unfortunately very disappointing and crashes constantly. I'm only able to save any work a track at a time as any more than one track causes the program to freeze and crash. I've got a fairly fast processor on my laptop and plenty of RAM and storage etc so it doesn't seem to be the laptop at fault. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times but basically the same thing happens every time. I would not recommend this package if you have a Windows 7 machine. If you run Windows XP, Music Maker 15 was good and worked well but otherwise I would suggest you save your cash and go for something a lot more reliable than this as basically version 16 seems to me to be a very poor performer. If I could have given less than one star I would have as it is virtually useless for me which is a major disappointment as previous versions worked really well.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, but...
As brilliant as this software is I have one big criticism. If you only buy it by itself it is really limited. If you buy it with Magix Soundpool then it is brilliant! Read more
