Editors' review

If you've got the talent, Magix's Music Maker can provide you with a digital mixing tool that rocks. Expect a fairly steep learning curve if you're new to the program, but don't let that intimidate you: along with a robust feature set, Music Maker comes with tutorials and direct links to the help forums.

The new features are robust additions to the already loaded feature set. The built-in drum machine, BeatBox, has been overhauled and is more flexible. The Infobox feature teaches you about music as you're producing it, as well as displaying long-form tooltips for advice on how to use the program. Sound Vision reorganizes your sounds into a visual scheme. Music Maker also comes with 1,500 sounds to get you started, and musicians can now publish directly from the program to YouTube. When you register the program, you get additional features that we couldn't test, like a vintage-style analogue compressor and MIDI step recording.

Check out the tutorials, because without them, navigating the program is like trying to play Bach before learning "Chopsticks." The interface is manageable once you know what features do and how to use them, so taking the time with the tutorials will pay off. Magix Music Maker is several steps beyond comparable freeware music-editing programs, but at a price that even a professional musician should be able to afford.

    "Bunch of Junk!"

    April 29, 2014   |   By ClarkDublin56

    Version: Magix Music Maker 2014 20.0.2.35

    Pros

    None at all!

    Cons

    This software installs bloatware, serious, bloatware. I would go for other software out there, maybe Dr. Drum, it's a lot better.

    Summary

    Magix Music Maker is bad, don't download it unless you want a bunch of bloatware. Try Dr. Drum http://******/1kry0PP

    "HAS VIRUSES DO NOT DOWNLOAD"

    March 07, 2014   |   By jschopen

    Version: Magix Music Maker 2014 20.0.2.35

    Pros

    None Really.

    Cons

    Download had multiple "Special Offers" all of which I declined, however the program proceeded to install several viruses on my computer. After spending sometime removing the viruses and having to install a new anti-virus program I tried using Magix Music Maker. Upon my attempt to use it most everything I tried clicking on to use gave me an error message, and since the free trial was only 7 days and this program had already given me way more hassle than it was worth I uninstalled it.

    Summary

    Download contains multiple annoying viruses, program seems buggy and difficult to use. Would not recommend. Save yourself the frustration and find a better program to use.
