Awesome program. Ive tried simillar programs without any real success, but within one hour of using audio creator, I was able to make a few pretty cool songs :P. All the stuff thats complicated in other software - the stuff that makes your songs sound awesome are so easy to use in audio creator. I highly recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in creating sounds and music.
Although its easy to use and learn I'd like to see maybe some advanced tutorials or even just techniques that professionals use when creating music with music creator. (there are some tutorials already and they are good.)

A very useful program with almost all the neccesary tools for music recording and editing.
Since this kind of software is complex and enumerating all the features would be difficult and tedious for everyone, I will just point some of them:

- Plug in a midi keyboard and use one of the many sounds in the soundbank: pianos, strings, basses, drums, synths, etc. The quality of the sounds is overall good, some of them doesn't sound very natural, mostly the "exotic" percussion instruments like the Taiko, but the quality of the rest is good, with some synths and strings being very professional. The vst packs add some good sounds, specially the grand pianos and the strings one. The Zeta2 can be opened like any other vst inside Music Creator, or standalone directly form your steam library.

- If you don't have a midi instrument you can still make songs using various interfaces, from the classical score sheet, to a "piano roll" divided in segments that work as compasses, or a loop tool specially useful for electronic music. There is NO need for an instrument to do songs with this program.

- If you want to record non midi instruments you can also do it, mics, or guitars, etc. Configuring the drivers may be tricky sometimes, but the developers answer fast in the forum to solve doubts.

- It has the usual Equalizer, Fx panel, and some of the most common audio processing tools.

- You can export the songs in several formats, but the mp3 requires you to buy it separatedly after the 30 days trial. I export songs in wma which has a good balance of quality and size.

Conclussion: I recommend Music Creator, it is quite cheap for all the features it offers if we compare it to other similar software. It's a lot more user friendly than others. I think both professionals and hobby musicians might find it very useful.

First of all, I recommend this DAW (digital audio workstation). There's a reason it's number one, so this review is just to point out some highlights for the informed consumer.

1. VALUE - This comes out on sale during Steam sales, usually bundled with Z3TA+2 (a synth plug-in to MC6). This is the deal to get if you see it come up.

2. INTERFACE - The UI is crazy, and its fun and creative, but rarely intuitive. Get ready to invest a lot of time in it, it is not standard.

3. CREATION - The ability to extend via plugins, record via MIDI, plot notes with the mouse, drop in audio clips, real-time jam via an effects matrix, record audio, add synths, drop in software instruments, mix and so, so much more is simply unparralleled. There are many ways to get your tune in, from a jazzy Christmas Melody to a desktop-clearing Dubstep Bass beat. If you're creative, then there's an outlet for you.

4. MIXING - If you're more on the mxing side, MC6 offers many ways to mix, from fx chaining, automation, programs, presets, track control, input-output chains, and more (I just can't recall all of them, there are many). I was able to achieve a very professional sound from raw tracks and a polished sounding end project in no time.

5. CONTENT - MC6 ships with a good selection of content, but IMHO not enough. You have standard clips for various genres (MIDI & WAV) but I found myself buying premade collections outside of Steam (well worth the investment) as well as scouring the net for freebies.

6. OUTPUT - MC6 will output to various formats, including lossless (WAV, FLAC) and lossy (MP3). I output to WAV and use 3rd party converstion tools to create quality OGG and likewise. Since you can set your output quality, you can generate CD sounding compilations (of course, start with high quality samples).

7. PLUG-INS - This is the best MC6 feature - there are many available plug-ins: a few shipped with MC6, some free on the Net, and lots of commercial ones. With MC6 you get TH2-Creator (an amp sim for amazing sounding guitar), a great Drum kit with both pattern sets and varying sounds, some instrument banks as well as the Cakewalk synth with many, many sounds. Package in Z3TA+2 and you have an industry leading synth with a huge soundbank and incredible sound creation potential.

8. COMMUNITY - This is a sore spot in v6 considering it is realeased end of 2013. There are NO community functions: you can not collaborate on tracks over the cloud, outsource components to fellow musicians, or communicate in real-time. They ship with SoundCloud integration so you can share your finished music over the Net but that is not collaboration. I'd really like to have the option to bring someone in to do vocals or lay down a bass track over the Net, all the while in my project. Hopefully v7.0 will consider this (essential) feature.

9. SUPPORT - Forget it. There are 8.1 glitches and Steam installer probs, as well as broken directory paths in the defaults. Absolutely no respone from the MC6 support team, despite numerous open tickets. Solution? Community forums. But not Cakewalk.

Ok, back to jamming...

Streamlined and intuitive interface.

having a built in step-sequencer for making drum tracks was welcome surprise. Also comes with a library of both recorded Drum tracks as well as midi and "groove monkey" tracks, allowing you to edit the step-sequences and instrument qualities of pre-fabricated midi drum tracks. Great for easily throwing together a working skeleton of a song that sounds good and also allows for you to edit and add your own personal touch and transitions between parts as opposed to just linking together stock drum loops.

The Midi-matrix mode shows a lot of promise as a easy to set up and utilize sampler for live applications. Haven't Gotten to play with it too much at this point, but plan to link my midi-guitar through it to see if i can't come up withsome interesting and original ideas

All in all, the DAW has become a personal favorite of mine since I purchased it months ago. Intuitive enough to boot up and throw together projects in a flash and comes with enough options and flexibility to handle more complicated tasks. Having it linked to my steam account for auto-updates and so that I don't have to hunt down a CD if I need to reinstall is also very nice.

This program is great, it can do almost anything.

With the Piano pack, a MIDI Keyboard and decent headphones you can make music that sounds like you are in a real studio.

If you are wondering... "Is this like the 'Music' game that i had on the playstation years ago?", the answer is... yes it is, Only better.

I would say though that if you are a PC novice or don't know much about music then this might be a big scary to use at first, but there is some great tutorial videos included with the program so don't worry about that too much.
