Editors' Review

+

Magix Music Maker 2015 offers studio-quality multitrack music production capabilities in an easy-to-use package. You can drag and drop songs and other files into it, record and mix high-resolution audio, and publish your tunes on sites like SoundCloud. The full version has 99 tracks and more than 3,000 clips and loops in a wide range of musical genres and styles, with more available online. New features include analog synths and dubstep and hip-hop drums.

Pros

Unique layout: Music Maker's layout is quite unique and much more efficient than similar tools we've tried. For example, each track has individual Solo, Mute, and Record buttons, as well as an effects (FX) menu.

Quick start: A quick start splash screen and a welcome screen made it easy to open existing projects, start a new one, and load demos and video tutorials. We could create music by dragging and dropping tunes, record music using a microphone or other inputs, mix tunes using preconfigured templates, and publish and share music online.

Fun: Features like drag and drop keep Music Maker fun to use.

Extended trial: You can extend the seven-day, feature-limited free trial period to 30 days by registering.

Cons

Nags: The free trial involves clicking through frequent and consecutive nag screens.

Bottom Line

Magix Music Maker 2015 creates pro-quality music. It's easy to use, too, and that spells fun.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Magix Music Maker 2015.

"Sorry but no more trust in this"

December 19, 2015  |  By I seethisname

 |  Version: Magix Music Maker 2016 2016

Pros

Great interface and easy to read....More room and time for creativity. Easy to learn and no so many buttons, sliders and knobs to figure out.

Cons

Buggy.....Buggy......Buggy. Dont install WINDOWS 10 after installing MMM (any version)

Summary

I've been a customer since 2005 and have always been happy with MMM except for a few minor problems such as the piano not working as well. But now, since installing windows 10 after MMM2015 was installed, messed up the installation pretty bad! Under the midi instruments, my Vita solo instruments no longer work and there is no work around. It will require another activation however when you click on it...it takes you to a website that has no English translation.
EdiThe track window data is not in sync with the curser. When you edit a track and record an edit....it does not record in the right spot and must manually be adjusted. The mixer keeps changing the volumes you set it at. again...it's a mess. I tried reverting back to as far as 2013, but nothing helped. I dont know who to blame...Windows 10 or Magix for not responding to my tech help emails!

"More buggy than previous versions"

November 08, 2015

2015-11-08 07:01:21

 |  Version: Magix Music Maker 2016 2016

Pros

Another take on music production
Initial start fantastique

Cons

Too buggy
Creativity often lost
Suddenly forgets the instrument in the midi track with all it's initial settings
Suddenly deletes half the arrangement after midi edit (able to redo this error af revert of save)
If your production takes more than 32 bars, it slows down and crashes often... this goes for all versions of MMM.
Crash, crash, crash

Summary

Just wish these Germans would get their act together and reprogram this app for good. There are DLL's from 1998!!! That was when Windows 95 and 98 was roaming!!! No wonder it's one big crash.
I really love their ideas and work flow they offer. But the execution ... OMG ... it's poor. Virtually as buggy as ... yes, Windows 95.
