    "Nice but buggy"

    February 2, 2012  |   By btak


    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.
