MAGIX has announced the release of a new version of Music Maker. 23 years after the program was first released, Music Maker is now equipped with a brand new technology system. The high-performance 64-bit Hybrid Audio Engine from Samplitude has been ported into the program, enabling music lovers everywhere to produce audio in authentic studio quality – right from the start.
Better sound, improved performance
The additional performance boost to Music Maker comes in the form of new multicore support. All CPU cores in a computer can be optimally used, meaning that significantly more instruments and effects can be used simultaneously.
Additionally, a wide range of new plug-ins are also available. The new essentialFX Plug-in Suite offers users a high-quality selection of audio tools for a wide range of tasks. Reverb plug-in VariVerb II and mastering wizard Ozone 8 Elements by iZotope are essentials for any studio setup – and now included in the Premium Edition of Music Maker.
Even more loops and effects
18 brand new Soundpools are also included within the bundle. Users can choose from over 270 Soundpools – from EDM, rock and hip-hop to trap and pop – and combine them with over 60 instruments and effects in Music Maker.
"Since its release in March 2017, the free version of Music Maker has been used by over 2 million new beat producers. We're now bringing loop-based production to a whole new level of performance. And the results can be clearly heard. There's a huge improvement to overall sound and performance, all thanks to the new audio engine. Now, anyone can create their own songs in high quality and in no time at all, even if they don't have any previous experience." – Matthias Trautwein, Product Owner for Music Maker.
