MAGIX Music Maker 2014 Premium Update

March 26th, 2014

Important changes in the latest update:
  • Fixed: Vita Solo Instruments were not working if Music Maker was uninstalled and later reinstalled into a different path.
  • Fixed: Vita Solo Instruments were not working if the Steam Client was installed under "Program Files" instead of the default "Program Files (x86)" on a 64-bit system.
  • Improved troubleshooting:
    • The Vita Solo Instruments can now be repaired by simply running the Steam integrity check.
    • Added a setup.exe so the installers of the Vita Solo Instruments can be run directly from the Steam library folder.

If you recognize any problems try the following steps:
  • 1. Close Music Maker 2014 Premium.
  • 2. Make sure your Steam Client is up to date (Menu Steam > Check for Steam Client Updates).
  • 3. Make sure Music Maker 2014 Premium is up to date (Library > MAGIX Music Maker 2014 Premium > Properties > Updates > Automatic Updates > Always keep this application up to date)
  • 4. Restart the Steam Client (Menu Steam > Exit)
  • 5. Run the Steam integrity check for Music Maker 2014 (Library > MAGIX Music Maker 2014 Premiuim > Properties > Local Files > Verify Integrity of Application Cache).
  • 6. Restart Music Maker 2014 Premium. The first time setup should now run again. Make sure you do not dismiss the User Account Control Dialog for steamservice.exe.

On my previous review I stated that there was a problem with the installer with steam.

Upon booting up today my 1.34GB Install had been patched to a 5.78GB install.
My hopes went skyhigh when I booted to to test the program and low and behold it all works flawlessly.

My conculsion is that either MAGIX gave steam a botched installer (it happens.) Or Steam had the VTS and poolpack's installing seperately.
Either way it has been resloved in less than 24 hours.

I would also like to say that in my previous review, one of the MAGIX dev's actually commented and attempted to assist me. While the problem is with the way the MAGIX site does its support. I would like to make a shout out and say cudos to the dev for actually responding.

Now for a review of the program itself.

Being a long time Fuity Loops user. I must say MAGIX has a new convert. The interface is smooth and easy to use. The Syth gernerators are amazing in how close they can emulate a real instrument.
The Store Page says it has 6000 loops, what it doesn't say is that each loop has 6 differing versions of itself. Either just by pitch or in some cases almost completely different. This puts the loop count over the 20,000 mark.

The program itself is very VERY memory efficient. I am unsure if it is X86 or X64 bit. But even creating larger bits of music there is almost null client lag. (That is assuming you have a decent CPU and alot of RAM).

The interface is easy to use, and just about every tool has rollover help. So even someone new to the program (like myself), can find thier way around it very easily.
The program also supports recording, and importing. If you have a loop or a sound bite you like. Importing it is as easy as drag and drop.
You can actually do pretty much everything without having to go menu diving.

Having used other Audio programs I would say MAGIX is the best. And with the speed of responce and the speed of the fix. I am happy to support future products from this company.
And I would HIGHLY recommend this program.

I would say. This is the PREMIUM version. If you are new to making music, or just want to dabble. I would say get the standard edition to tinker with.

Pretense - I'm an amateur and only make tracks for enjoyment. I'm not reviewing this from the prespective of a professional.

After a day with this software, do I think it's worth it? Yes. The layout is intuitive and responsive. There are a ton of samples and tools, most of which I haven't even touched yet. There are a lot of effects and it's fun to toy around with them until everything sounds just right.

The samples are sorted in to different genres, which makes finding the type of sound you want a bit easier. There are features that are good for beginners (for example, asking you if you'd like to sync your samples to the proper pitch/bpm as you put the track in to the project).

This probably isn't the best software for professional music production, but I'd recommend it if you want to make some music without struggling with 3 different pieces of complex (and usually expensive) professional software.

Okay, how do I put this...
Let's do it with an example:
https://soundcloud.com/nemo-ma/spirit-carnage-all-hands-to
This one is what I made using nothing but only 1 set of material provided in the program, in 40 minutes.
I think this speaks for itself. Hope it helps.

WARNING!!!!

BEWARE of this, for me it just freezes while initializing soundpools. And Steam takes no responsibility what so ever. And steam does not give you a refund or anything of the likes.

Don't buy this, download the demo first to see if it works first.
And I also noticed while roaming the forums that you can not use any of the soundpools which you get from Magix to make your "own" songs. As long as you are using loops provided by Magix you have to pay extra to be able to publish anything.

Brilliant piece of software for musicians of all levels. Pre-made sample loops for beginners just looking to stick a tune together, more advanced midi instruments for composers, easy audio input for performers and instrument editors for fine-tuning synths and filter effects. The price tag seems big, but it's well worth it for the sheer quality of the midi instruments that are available. Power guitars that sound just like guitars, truly magnificent synths... the only drawback is the lack of classical instruments (for instance, there's no tuba or even a harp, at least that I can find).

So if you don't have the equipment for recording your own instruments or you're a composer with low-quality software, or even if you're just looking for an introduction into composing, this software is easily understandable and musically beautiful and definately worth getting.
