MAGIX announced that its new Music Maker is out, with customizable design, optimized arranger and improved MIDI workflows, making it easier for everyone to create music. Meet Music Maker 2020.
Making Music has never been so easy, claims MAGIX, announcing the new version of its software. The company says it has made Music Maker even more intuitive so that both new and experienced beat producers can take full advantage of the creative possibilities. The legendary software for loop-based music production now features a new, customizable user interface, an optimized arranger for increased clarity and improved MIDI editing.
“Since the introduction of the free Music Maker in March 2017, we have attracted more than 3 million new users to Music Maker. That’s why it was particularly important for us to make workflows more intuitive. With the new Music Maker you can produce your own songs at a professional level in no time at all – with or without prior knowledge,” says Matthias Trautwein, Music Maker Product Owner.
A redesigned interface
Music Maker is now available in a new modern flat design and, additionally, the program offers an individually customizable user interface. The window layout in the Music Maker can be selected and adjusted to arrange Soundpools, instruments and effects according to personal preference and needs, so every user can have the interface they like best or is better suited to their workflow.
Thanks to the optimized arranger, loops can now simply be dragged beneath an existing track to create a new track. The track header “now includes volume control and can be minimized in size to create even more space in projects”, says MAGIX. The company also points to an even better MIDI editing, stating that “thanks to MIDI optimizations, MIDI devices can be connected to a PC or laptop and melodies can be played on the MIDI keyboard or beats with the drum pad controller in a matter of seconds. Using the MIDI editor, notes can then easily be added, moved or deleted. Music Maker’s new Trimming function makes it possible to combine a looped MIDI object into one object. This way, melodies and beats can be adjusted in a song at lightning speed.”
The different versions of Music Maker 2020
The completely redesigned start dialog now includes introductory videos, tutorials as well as valuable tips and tricks in order to help learn Music Maker’s functions and workflows even better. Users can expand their knowledge on how to use Soundpools, instruments and effects or how to unlock additional functions and editions from the store – clearly arranged at a glance when starting the program.
