This review isn't aimed at music or DAW experts - this review is aimed at the next person who perhaps, seeing this on sale again in the future, decides to give it a try. By all means, creating music is an awesome thing, rewarding and satisfying - but it would be a shame if someone leapt into buying it, opened the program excitedly, only to break into a cold sweat when they suddenly realise they have no idea what they're doing, what they're looking at, and why they bought it.

That said:

I bought Music Creator 6 Touch and the Z3TA+2 bundle when it went on sale, and I have absolutely no regrets. The two products together were a massive bargain and I only wish at the time I'd bought a few more sound packs. Though after some weeks I'm still fully getting my head around some of the features particularly as it relates to mixing down, (my background is in music - but NOT in audio engineering!), I've found this software to be solid, and the more I get into using it, the more I appreciate it. While some online videos and tutorials help, I personally find what helps the most is a lot of experimentation (and saves).

Music Creator 6 may not have quite as many pre-packaged voicings as I might like, sure, but for those of you contemplating complaining about this aspect of the software, understand that MC6 isn't LIMITING you to those! That's where virtual instruments/VST plugins come in - and there's countless ones out there to play with - some of which are free, with active communities supporting them. There's literally no limit.

When this thing goes on sale, if bundles/sound packs are also discounted, then by all means, spring for those that are appropriate to your musical objectives - that gives you a head start into experimenting with this aspect of the program using known-entity compatible products. Just don't think those are the ONLY ONES you can use; they aren't.

If anything for me, what I know is the "outgrowing it" point for MC6 is going to be the soft synth limitation, that is to say - how many you can have actively running in a single composition. Upgrading to Sonar, for me, will likely be spurred by this as symphonic compositions (or any richly-textured electronic one) can easily require more than that.

In any case, I enjoy the interface and the more I use it, the more use I get OUT of it. That's a good perspective to have about this kind of application. Whether I'm edting a score, or working with loops, I feel like the software has a lot to offer, and weeks later, I'm still finding out new ways to work with it.

So, after reading all this, you find that you're tempted, but you're new to using a DAW, understand that there IS a learning curve, and that this kind of software is a good foundation for someone wanting to create audio music, but that there's headroom to expand it's capability as you expand yours.

Expect to invest some time learning how to really make the most of it. (Why else would you bother?)


Some additional tips and ideas:

If you find the on-screen keyboard frustrating, and want to get into the "piano" aspect of it, but are on a budget - then a nice place to start is to get yourself a little 32-key mini midi controller keyboard; you can always upgrade to longer and more feature-filled versions as you get more into composing. However - take a little time to educate yourself on the features - things like weighted keys, touch sensitivity, programmability, etc. And if you have larger hands? You may need to hold out for full-sized keys and skip the space-friendly mini-keyed boards.

Spend a little time watching online tutorial videos; while I didn't find that they necessarily teach you everything you might WANT to know, they give you the "lay of the land", so to speak - an idea of features, how to access them, etc. How each person chooses to use software like this can vary greatly depending on what they're composing, and how.

Most importantly - do not even start using this until you have either an internal, or external dedicated sound card - reason being:

If you plan to install a low-latency driver such as ASIO4ALL, and are only using mobo onboard sound, expect to run into challenges due to the fact that ASIO4ALL requires exclusive use of your audio device - effectively butting heads with Windows' attempts to deliver audio to any OTHER apps you're using. While you can get around this with various clumsy settings changes - the easiest/cheapest thing to do is (if you're not that serious about optimal audio quality) go grab a decent sound card. I got by with a basic Asus Xonar DGX PCI card, and that worked just fine, until I could sort out something a bit more serious.

Or - if you're ready to make leap into something even more purpose-built, then you can find external USB interfaces at any price range and input capability depending on how far down the rabbit hole you want to go and how many/what kind of inputs you want to use - this is also an ideal solution if you plan to compose from a laptop, or are using a desktop rig that (due to multiple graphics cards, for instance), can't accomodate internal sound cards due to a lack of slots (or space).

Good luck!

It's pretty good for simple songs, but you reaaaaally gotta pave your own way to achieve the sound that you want though.
It crashes a lot. A LOT. So save often.
You pretty much get what you pay for with this DAW, I've been working with it for a year now and I've made some decent tracks. Though nothing crazy good because of the limitations, like you can't really capture the sounds and ideas you have in your head because it's so limited.

So do I recommend this for beginners?: Yes
Do I recommend it for people who want to achieve those eloquent sounds in their head?: No

Not recommending this software to anyone who is starting out. For their original asking price, the software does nothing in the ways of improving DAW cleanliness, and speed. You will get more out of starting with a DAW like REAPER. If you are feeling more adventurous, I suggest getting FL Studio. Way more overwhelming, but lots of effects that will make your music sound really awesome.

I invested 300+ hours into Reaper, and I loved every second of it.

I invested 70+ hours into Music Creator 6 Touch, and hated every second of it.

I will give it credit for the vst though that is included. The sounds are crisp, and clear. The interface, however; is extremely confusing, and will take you ages to fully master. Still haven't figured out how to zoom in on the ♥♥♥♥ing MIDI keyboard.
I would wait for the software to go on sale before making a decision. You can get more out of another DAW for the same price. The only reason I would recommend the software is if you want to become familiar with a DAW system, and how rendering audio works.
Also, crashes a ton.

As a music-creation hobbyist, I found the Music Creator 6 Touch program to be an interesting upgrade to the sort-of freeware programs I am used to using (ACID Xpress, for example). The Music Creator 6 Touch had nearly all the features of those programs, with a couple more MIDI items courtesy of Cakewalk to create new loops out of.

The downside is that when it comes to making music for instances other than your own personal enjoyment, you long for something more professional; something that doesn't limit the amount of audio loops you are allowed to have at one time; something that doesn't lock-out the SoftSynth selection tab preventing you from adding more loops, even when you delete the entire project page.

If you are willing to spend money on the simplest DAW you can, and money's no problem, you could say Music Creator 6 Touch is the program for you.

But I STRONGLY suggest you compare this program with other DAW programs by Cakewalk for limits. If you don't really want to be limited on the amount of items you wish to add to a project, you might want to consider saving your Steam money and Wallet Codes for a higher program.

I've use Cakewalk since the Commodore 64 days! Glad Steam had it on sale, since I was using a buggy pirate version due to the ridiculous expensive price normally. Got Composer, Mixer, Synthesizer and all the Instruments for $110!

** Turns my cheap Casio MIDI keyboard into an expensive synthesizer capable of playing nearly any instrument!
** Add a pickup and practice mute to my violin, fire up Z3TA+2 and I've got a electric violin with distortion!
** Can play an entire orchestra solo and add the tracks together for entire musical piece!
** Easily create sheet music, MIDI and MP3 recordings of my compositions just by playing the pieces.
** Transposing allows to correct minor errors in musical pieces without having to replay it.

Best of this class of software I've used, highly recommended.

Awesome product. A very capable basic DAW with excellent inbuilt video tutorials and some half decent sample projects and bits to get you started. Very reliable while working ona song and has most of the bits you will need to make music all built in and can be upgraded to the more professional Sonar product if needed.

Fun to play around with, but I have to admit, the whole program and the packs that come with it are FAR TOO overpriced.

I think I'll stick with FL Studio and Garageband.

The word 'Broken' doesn't even describe this program, Music Creator 6 Touch is so broken that my one Hot Wheel with a f*cked up tire is more functional that the program itself. Basic things like midi creation are frustrating tasks, why is it when I turn off grid snapping, the note still snaps to a grid? Why is it when I playback a track, the software quite literally blows up my speakers consistantly, although my sound is below 60%? Why is it when I delete a track, it still plays? Although I've muted all remaining tracks and the song is stopped? I wish I could get back all the countless hours I've wasted, struggling to even do basic things, such as import audio or use the step recorder, this proof alone that this program is quite the rip off.

I would rather smash each and every single finger on both of my hands with a brick until every bone fragment was separated, losing my ability to play any instrument whatsoever, than use this program ever again.

Buy FL Studio


Buy Audacity...

Music Creator 6 Touch is a great commercial music software creator for those intersted in making music. I enjoy making different types of music including the use of synthesizers.
It can be difficult for new users to interact with this software, but with patience it can be done.

*It is recommended to have a MIDI Keyboard (makes it a lot easier) otherwise I'd recommend using a virtual MIDI keyboard/port that reroutes to MC6Touch. Link provided below.

I am very happy with Music Creator 6 Touch. It does everything I need it to. It records my electric guitar, it records my vocals, and the drum loops are good too. The vst plugins are nice especially th2. It sounds so real. Oh yeah, I got this software when it was on sale for like 24 bucks or something :)

I decided to purchase this awhile ago when it was on sale. I have used FLStudio up through 9 and loved it but wanted to see what else was out there. Maybe I have no patience but this software is not user friendly by any means. I would not advise purchasing, if you want good music production software try looking somewhere else.

Do not buy this! The price is right for a reason...

The software is buggy, the interface in not intuitive, and the tutorials provide little insight. The minimal set of provided samples are disparate and essentially unchainable. Investing in additional packages in the hopes of having better content will cost you a fortune and is merely an exercise in throwing good money after bad. And for good measure, you will be forced to pay extra if you want so save your creations as an mp3 file.

Even with all that, if it provided anything useful at all to the creative process, I could learn to live with it.
1) There are no song parts like those which were available in Music Creator 6 - Do not be fooled into thinking this is an upgrade of that product: It's not.
2) I had hoped that editing percussion lines would be straightforward, like the interface for Hydrogen: It's not.
3) I had hoped it was capable of laying out the basic framework for a piece quickly so I could focus on other elements: It's not.
4) I had hoped the tool was something that would make recording tracks an easy process without having to fiddle much with settings and timing: It's not.
5) Whatever you think this product is going to do for you: It's not. You will be disappointed.

Want proof?
1) Read past the first few dubious pages of good reviews here and you will find mountains of truth.
2) Go look on YouTube and peruse all the compositions that people have created with this product (Make sure you search for Music Creator 6 Touch) - You can count them on one hand, and they are remarkably unimpressive.
3) The first video on this site featuring the demo song from Portal 2 says, "Music created, recorded and mixed using Music Creator 6 Touch." Open up the demo if you are unfortunate enough to own this product and there's an asterisk that qualifies things a bit: *Mastered in SONAR X2 Producer

Needless to say, I feel misled by the statement that this has, "all the tools, loops, instruments, and FX you need to create, edit, and mix great music." It was a waste of money even at a significant discount. Firing up my old Tascam 2488 in an attempt to do something productive after wasting my time on this piece of vaporware. Roland should be ashamed.

I bought this on sale to try out music composing. It took me quite a bit of fiddling to get things working. The interface isn't very intuitive but that's because it offers a lot of functionality. Once you get used to the controls you'll be glad you have access to all of this functionality. Since this is aimed at a home users they should really have wizards or a simplified mode to get you up running right away. The demo projects don't even show up by default in drop down list... Overall, this is an excellent product for the price. Btw look up the free programs loopMidi and VMPK if you don't have or want a MIDI keyboard.

seems a good program, but its very complicated, even more than cubase but the VST's seem cheaper but I guess its one of those things that the more expensive a product is the easier it is too use, from my opinon.working with the x station 61 makes everything even more complicated than just to plug it in select the vst and start playing.

I come from using Sony's Acid Pro software for almost 15 years. In the old Win XP days it worked fine but since upgrading to Windows 7 64bit, it was having issues and the favorite old DAW software was starting to show it's age. I had also upgraded my old Tascam U122L audio interface with a spanky new Scarlett Focusrite.

I had never heard of Music Creator 6 until I saw it for sale on Steam here and decided to purchase it and some sound packs for a real good deal. I had no intention of replacing my Acid Pro 7 software as it was something that worked ok and I knew how to use it. I did some research on Music Creator and found it's from the Sonar family of audio software products which I definatly knew of so it comes from a good heritage. Now after having installed it and the VST plug ins I use, I must say I'll probably not be going back to Acid Pro.

Being familiar with DAW software as I am I had no trouble finding my way around Music Creator. Everything is pretty much right where you want it to, It's integration with my soft synths, e-drums, two keyboards, and the Scarlett box were all very seamless. It runs MUCH more efficiently on the hardware and seems to have everything I'll need for creating my own musical tracks. Great software if you know about audio production and would be perfect for any small/personal desktop studio.

VERY happy with my purchase.

After having played around with this for a while, I got the basic idea of how to use the software. I'm a music student at my school and I'm looking to follow my interest into university. At my school, I use the program 'Protools 11', which is fantastic, and, in terms of layout, is very similar to Music Creator 6. This software is perfect for recording, mixing, and any other possible task that you can give it. I would definitely recommened this, especially at £40 (I got this for £10) as Protools is a ridiculous price. If you're interested in making your own music, or want to use it for school work, this is a damn good choice.

If you have no idea on how one could make music with their pc and you are looking for an easy entry into making music - this is not the programm you are looking for. Clumsy preference/device setup. The youtube tuts lack the essential howto.

This is the first music-making program I bought, so I have very few other programs which I can truly compare this to using personal experience. With that said, this is a competent and functional music creation and editing program, but it's far from perfect. You can import your own audio and edit the volume and such, so if that's what you're looking for, this program gets the job done.

If you're looking to create your own MIDI music tracks, this will also get the job done, but I have a few warnings. The only way to create music here is to use the musical staff, so if you can't read music this isn't for you. On top of that, your edited music gets pretty messy and chopped up as you go, so don't expect to do much "clicking and dragging" as you would in programs like Fruity Loops. The instrument quality isn't the best, but there may be a way to import your own instrument samples or buy new ones from Cakewalk's website; I haven't looked into it myself, but I don't see why you couldn't do it. And when you're playing back your song, there's a chance that it will silence a few notes at random if your tempo is in an increment of 5 (for example, 100, 95, 90, 105, etc.), and that's really shoddy programming if you ask me.

All in all, it's not the best program in the world, it requires knowledge of the musical staff and what the different notes mean (AND where they go; you can't just stick them anywhere) (to be fair, I think that'd go for any music program, but this isn't a "WYSIWYG" affair like other programs may offer), and the programming is sub-par in several ways, but it's definitely useable and it gets the job done. However, I feel that it's just not enough to merely "get the job done". I was on the fence thinking about whether I should recommend it or not since I spent a lot of time with the program regardless, but knowing that there are better programs out there with better-sounding samples which are also easier to use and do not necessitate intimate knowledge of the musical staff, and also due to the fact that I only used this for so long because I had no other music editing programs, I'm going to have to say, "look elsewhere"! With that said, it's not a complete ripoff and it's still worth a try if you happen to find it on sale and you're desperate for a program to use to make music for a video game or something. Plus you get the song "Want You Gone" from Portal 2 included for free with the program. That's worth something, right?
