The new customizable Music Maker

The new customizable Music Maker

It has arrived! The end of this summer will once again be dominated by the new Music Maker, a bit of a tradition, really. However, we want to avoid falling into a routine, and instead tinkered around with the settings, introducing a fresh summer breeze to the new version!

With the introduction of the Music Maker Store around a year ago, we laid the foundations for a DAW that is more easily customizable to your individual needs. As you know, since then you have been able to freely put together Soundpools and software instruments according to your own tastes, and it’s exactly this idea of flexibility that we want to continue and develop!

As of now you can pick the functions you need to customize your own version! What’s more, you’ll get a lifetime of free updates. Find out how it works and the advantages of the new Music Maker here.

The editions

Based on the idea of editions, there is now just one Music Maker. This is free and can be expanded with additional content like Soundpools, software instruments, preset sounds and functions (e.g. more tracks, effects and tools). Building on this, there are various editions with freely selectable content. With over 100 to choose from, you can find the one that’s exactly right for you!

Music Maker

Music Maker is available for free since March 2017. For those who are new to the world of music production and may feel overwhelmed by too many functions, this Music Maker is perfect! You can find detailed information about this at our product page.

Once you realize that you have gained more experience over time you can activate further functions, Soundpools and software instruments.

The big advantage of this new concept is that you only need to select the extras that you really need!

  • 1 Soundpool Collection of your choice

Will there still be Music Maker Live, Control and Performer?

Music Maker Live no longer exists in its previous form. The functions in Live Pad mode including 60 live sets have however been kept. This feature can now be activated.

What else is customizable?

We want to offer you even more choice in the future, so there will be special editions that are tailored to specific music genres. This means that there will be the following editions from October: 80’s edition, hip hop edition, trap edition, EDM edition.

We’ll let you know more about this in good time!
