Music Maker: 80s Edition

Drag & drop to combine them any way you want. And yes, loops fit perfectly together just like building blocks. Find out more in our video to see how it works!
With the 80s Edition, you can choose up to 3 different 80s soundpools for free.
Free sounds & loops
The 80s Edition of Music Maker comes equipped with 425 loops & sounds. This allows you to produce all different kinds of beats and songs.
What's a Soundpool?
The 80s Soundpool, Vaporwave, consists of various sound building blocks. This includes 15 bass loops, 21 synthesizer samples and 8 drum kits. They are available in 7 pitches and are easily combined together!
Why 7 pitches?
7 pitches mean 7 times more possibilities! Each sound has 7 versions in different pitches to ensure as much variation as possible.
These software instruments are so 80s –
and that's a good thing.
Typical 80s sounds like 808 drums and analog synthesizers are instantly recognizable. Control the sounds in your tracks via the keyboard, mouse or MIDI controller. With the 80s Edition, you also get to choose one additional software instrument for free like Space Pads, for atmospheric surfaces, or Analog Synths, with more than 450 presets from legendary synthesizers.
Free software instruments
The perfect start: Each copy of Music Maker includes a virtual freeware synthesizer, a free concert piano and sample player Vita 2. Develop your own zany synth sounds, atmospheric basses, classical piano chords and completely new sounds.
The integrated screen keyboard offers two different options to make music. The first mode reflects traditional piano design and offers access to the MIDI chord and arpeggio function. The second mode doesn't have your typical piano design but allows you to select various scales and will automatically only play the notes that fit the song you're working on.
With MIDI, feed your ideas for melodies, rhythms, chords and big arrangements into Music Maker. These MIDI patterns can be then played by the software instruments without forgoing the usual quantization options.
fresh from the studio
Connect a microphone or an MIDI controller and start your own recording. You can also turn old samples from back in the day turn into today's Vaporwave sounds.
Time travel for your sounds
As crazy as the 80s: The effects area delights with typical echo effects, professional wah-wahs, chorus and echo sounds.
80s rock lead singers
Wilder than the haircuts from your favorite decade: Vandal SE is a genuine guitar amplifier and brings the needed rock to your sound.
