MAGIX Music Maker 2013 (Anniversary Special incl. &hellip by Magix Entertainment Ltd
If it weren't for some rather big problems with this software, I'd have only great things to say about it.
It's easy to use, allows you opportunity to create your own unique drum loops, etc.
At the end, I manage to come away with a pretty professional sound.

However, something that seems to be a major annoyance, and from what I've seen online, there isn't a solution - When exporting a file and listening on playback, the track can be left with a couple of fuzzy noises. They last less than a second each, but basically ruin the track. This has nothing to do the recording. It always happens at 29 seconds, and then repeats another time at just after the 2 minute mark… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 26 Jan 2014
This film is so good.
In my opinion, DiCaprio is the best Actor around, so I thought I'd check out some of his earlier work.
As per usual, he is utterly convincing in this film as a mentally handicapped child.

It's also great to see Depp in his youth.
This is one of those raw films.
It's not about make-up and special effects.

This is about real drama and brilliant acting.

The film surrounds the life of Gilbert Grape (and, on a side note, I thought the film title was a little silly at first).
He is the eldest brother in a dysfunctional family.
His father killed himself, so Gilbert takes charge.
His mother, as a consequence… Read more
