This review is from: Music Maker 2014 Premium (PC) (DVD-ROM)
MM2014 opens with a nice clean looking interface screen that’s pretty intuitive to use and if you get stuck has a good help file to get you through each stage. The software provides you with a library of 6,000 loops and samples that can be used either as the basis for creations of your own music, or added to your compositions. In previous versions of the software you were limited to the number of tracks to add samples to, but now the possibilities are endless with unlimited tracks.
One thing I really like about the software is the ease of connecting a usb keyboard to the software, press record on a track and start playing.
Any music app is going to be judged to some extent by the range of effects and instruments that it provides users with, and MAGIX Music Maker delivers on this front. Usability and performance are also very important factors, the system requirements make it clear that the software can run pleasingly well on fairly average computer systems.
Midi editor – no need to purchase expensive hardware you can import midi files into the editor or create new midi files with various instrumental sounds, Lots more samples, Music Maker 2014 enables you to make the most of whatever talents you may have, providing you with the tools you need to take things to the next level. While it is possible to create something by just dropping a series of samples onto your workspace and playing around with a range of effects, you really do need to get involved if you want to get the most from the program.
