Editors' Review

Amazing Maze for Mac allows you to create non-repeating musical tracks using various sampled sounds, even if you lack musical skills or talent. It makes a positive impression with its functionality and its ability to generate complex tracks. This freeware works with all Mac OS X versions after 10.6.

Pros

Random music composition: Amazing Maze does not produce pop music, but more sophisticated sounds, comparable to the tracks of a soundtrack album.

Autonomous composition: The application can compose music on its own, but you can also intervene in the creation process. Regardless of your choice, however, the result will still be some more or less randomly-generated MP3 composition. There's also an option to edit your composition.

Well-developed: It took years of work for the developers to turn this application into what it is today, a unique piece of software.

Cons

Non-repeating: Because of the app's non-repeating nature, you can't create tracks that are comparable to pop songs or other music complete with repeating choruses. That said, you could try to combine the separate tunes you create with this app using another music software.

Includes copyrighted audio samples: The sound clips available feature bits of copyrighted compositions, which means that you cannot use the tracks generated by the application for commercial purposes.

Difficult to use: Despite its relatively basic layout, this application takes time to get used to.

Bottom Line

In the end, Amazing Maze for Mac stands out as an ingenious music composition tool. You cannot produce pop songs with it, but you will appreciate the musical quality of its output. At the least, you should be able to create audio clips that sound more complex than the repetitive "grooves" of modern day pop and hip hop. The unpredictability of the outcome makes this application exciting.
