    "Not as good as it could be"

    August 14, 2012   |   By spartain

    Version: Magix Audio Cleaning Lab Deluxe MX

    Pros

    You can get some cleaningh and improvement done

    Cons

    Documentation (Help files) useless.
    Some of the tools don't work well.
    Retarded plug-in facility.
    No highlighting.

    Summary

    The equalizer (graphic and parametric) can be used for cleaning, but many of the clean-up tools are rubbish. The dehisser introduces annoying swirling artifacts, and as soon as you start to cut into the hiss it will eat away at the opper-mids of the audio. That is truly rubbish. The rumble filter is nothing but a low-block filter, but you will find better control by using the graphic equaliser.

    Earlier versions of this program (Magix Music Editor) allowed you to highlight sections in order to carry out local editing, but this has stupidly been removed from Audio Cleaning Lab. Now it relies on a 'drawing tool' to redraw the wave, but it's not only clumsy, but also incredibly inaccurate. When you think you've redrawn a high transient peak to match the adjacent waves, you will find, when you pull out from the close view that the transient still exists! It used to be so much better when it was possible to highlight and edit selected areas.

    The plug-in section is abysmal in that it will only accept DirectX plugins, and even they won't work in real-time! And the Spectral Cleaner is a joke to, in that it's not real time either, and very clumsy to use. The instructions for it are abysmal. You will very likely give up even trying to use this pathetic sales-pitch gimmick.

    Don't be fooled by new releases from Magix, because all they ever do is slightly re-arrange certain features (no improvements, no bug-fixes) in order to grab more of your money. And don't hold your breath waiting for any Customer Support either. The best you will get is some useless advice that will not work and then you'll be ignored. Complaints or pleading on their forum or Facebook will be quickly deleted too. A really terrible company with appalling business ethics. Try searching Google for complaints and see for yourself.

    I give this program two stars because it is mediocre. Audacity is mediocre too and worse than this, but at least it's free. This is just a plain rip-off for its price and in no way a professional piece of software. Adobe Audition is better but much more expensive. If only they had the sense to produce a non-multitrack version at a lower price it would kill the Magix rip-off junk.

    "Best Version Yet!"

    June 27, 2012   |   By mistertee

    Version: Magix Audio Cleaning Lab Deluxe MX

    Pros

    Complex audio adjustments are made simple via built-in wizards, easy to understand manual controls, and high-quality processing components. Great value considering the wide range of audio issues that can be resolved with this software.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a "con", but audio novices might need to spend some time learning the manual/custom aspects of the software. That said, newbies can rest assured that the wizard driven and automated features of the software require only basic knowledge.

    Summary

    I've been using various versions of this program for quite a while. It's always been good but 9ver the past few years, major version upgrades (which you must pay for) haven't brought much in the way of new features/capabilities to the table. In reading the promotional info on the latest edition (V. 18, aka; "MX") I had the initial impression that "MX" would be more of the same. Well, I'm happy to say that the new features of MX actually ARE worth the price of an upgrade or new purchase. The new presets are well thought-out, useful and effective. The many automated wizards HAVE been significantly improved and auto-analysis and subsequent application of processing is better than ever. Alos, there have been some positive changes to the user-interface, not so much on the main screen, but on the effects rack and manual adjustment UI. Most importantly, you don't need to know much about professional audio to get great results. Even intermediate users like myself can definitely benefit from the streamlined processing scripts. This is really a winner and I would urge anyone who needs more control over their audio files to give the trial version a test drive. The download version can be found for less than $40 from a few authorized distributors so be sure to take a look for discounts before purchasing.
