5.0 out of 5 stars Music
I bought Music hoping that it would reach new standards in general music creation, and I was right. Music is an amazing game with a huge age range. If you wanna be a pop star or rock singer, you will love this game. It lets you create wonderful musical masterpieces in the space of a few days using a simple system of just putting sections of music (riffs) wherever you want...

Music for the PlayStation is an interesting beast. It allows any rave-headed maniac (such as moi) to create a great tune in a matter of minutes (apparantely). It comes with a built-in samples library and an on-screen sequencer to build your samples into a tune. Unfortunately, the PlayStation version isn't excellent when it comes to being able to put sounds in to it. The PC version (either the original or slightly improved Music 2000), allows you to import sounds from CD, wave, off the net and using a mike. But due to the playstations lack of accessory holes, it can be difficult. Then there is the matter of the samples on the disc. Many of them are extremely cheesy and naff. The lack of an inbuilt mixer (to set the levels for each track) means that unless you pee about with creating samples and setting levels within the sample, you have to resort to having 3 or 4 tracks with the same sample playing, which as well as being slightly uncontrollable, also takes up a fair bit of space.
Although the input side of this sequencer program is slightly dodgy, the output is good. You can save your tune on to a memory card, and create a short "jukebox" section with your tunes on it (played in a certain order) and use 2 memory cards in it's inbuilt slots. You can also try out tunes that are on the CD, and remix them. One of the beautiful parts about Music is that you can trade tunes with people using the PlayStations memory card management software, you can then remix your mate's tunes.
If you scratch (wickey-wickey-woooaaah) in to the software a bit further, you will find the sample generator. This is a part of the software where you can compose your own riffs using an on-screen bit of software and hours of patience. Then you can mix those riffs in to your song.
All this adds up to a fairly good piece of software. If you think that having fun is a good thing as compared to making a groundbreaking piece of dance music, then this could be the package for you. If you want a bit more, you really should look for something a bit higher up the market. The verdict on this is: it's a pretty good piece of software, extremely easy to use, but unfortunately lacks in a certain area: decent samples. This wouldn't be to bad on a PC because you could import your own samples, but unless you want to sit and do 3-hours mind-numbingly boring composition, your gonna have to take your time.
One other good point, you can release your tunes (if you put their logo all over your CD...)

If you wanna be a pop star or rock singer, you will love this game. It lets you create wonderful musical masterpieces in the space of a few days using a simple system of just putting sections of music (riffs) wherever you want in your piece. If find that over 200 ready-made riffs aren't enough for you then you can even make your own using the riff editor! Now I know you can be a pop star with just music and singing, but why not make a video? Well you can with music! It uses exactly the same method as the music, just select and drop! An amazing sound system and video creator...Just brilliant.
