MAGIX: Making music with your PC
Making music without knowing anything about notes or instruments would have been unthinkable just a few years ago.
Software solutions for home computers offer users the possibility to experience music production completely. The original of many imitations is MAGIX Music Maker. For over 15 years, this program has empowered users with the courage to try making their own songs. No need for years of piano lessons or being tortured with the recorder at school; this easy to understand program makes professional productions in nearly any genre and style possible.
Anyone can easily make music
These days, music composed on a PC is hardly able to be recognized as such. In fact, computers are viewed today as an instrument for musicians that needs to be learned and mastered. Songs created digitally are often unable to be distinguished from works created using traditional analog methods. That's why musicians, instruments, and their relationship is the focus – the only difference is that composing on a PC now makes it possible for everyone to express themselves musically. Some basic ideas are helpful, however, but these may be learned in less time than it takes to learn how to read notes. Information about how to organise music, to be able to find music files quickly, and also which audio codec (e.g. MP3) is useful for which particular purpose, is just as helpful as knowing how to work with loops and MIDI, since these form the basic building blocks for working with sounds in a sequenzer.
The final editing or mastering is only important for those who really want to add a final bit of polish to their masterpiece. Their are really only a few steps from starting out making your own music, to burning a final, professionally produced CD!
