In what it calls the “most revolutionary feature update since its first release 23 years ago,” software maker Magix has released a new version of its Music Maker music creation software program for Windows.
Tops on the list of refurbishment is the new power plant under the hood, the 64-bit Hybrid Audio Engine from stablemate Samplitude.
Music Maker now supports CPU multicore processing for improved editing and audio processing. In addition multiple plug-in packages have been brought in — including Ozone 8 Elements from iZotope. Music Maker also packs in hundreds of new loops and effects packages along with new onboard instruments (from strings to keys to percussion and horns).
Magix offers a free version featuring the basics (along with hundreds of loops and tools). Prices: Music Maker Plus Edition: $59.99; Music Maker Premium Edition: $129.99.
