"Nice but buggy"
Wonderfully simple user interface.
Easy to make decent music.
My trial version is buggy. Some loop items appear multiple times. The sound tends to be rife with crackles & distortion irregardless of how I tweak the ASIO buffers. Music Maker has crashed my Vista-64 system a few times in the first week. And my system never crashes.
I like this product but would/will wait for it to mature/stabilize before purchasing.This is the 4th time I've tried this demo s/w and each time never got my USB keyboard to make a sound. It is frustrating as I like the built in library sounds and otherwise ease of use.

I have evaluated many music creation s/w's mostly with success -- Reason, Avid, MixCraft, etc.
I have tried using DirectSound, ASIO, and Wave Driver. Each without success.
If anyone has a suggestion, I am all ears.
