The Live Sets were produced especially for Live Pad mode in the new Music Maker 2016 Live. You’ll find the right Live Set for any music genre arranged according to the following labels.

You can fast forward or rewind using the player shown below.

Diversity of Live SetsAdvantages

A Live Set consists of a total of 16 loops, which are assigned to the pads automatically. Not only are the loops matched perfectly to each other, they have also been recorded in all seven pitches, which you are already familiar with from Music Maker. In this case, pitch 1 stands for “C major” and pitch 7 stands for “B major” . So if you want to insert a loop into your existing song, then you’ll find it directly in the right pitch. This saves you from having to pitch shift and guarantees consistently high quality. Every pitch has been recorded by our musicians using real instruments. They also purposely added minimal variations, just to create the perfect, authentic sound.
