2 million new beat producers in only 15 months
On March 21, 2017, we embarked on a new path with Music Maker. The loop-based music production software, which had already been established on the market for over 20 years, was made available for download as a free full version. We are proud to announce that in the first 15 months more than 2 million music enthusiasts had installed this version.
If you haven't tried Music Maker yet, we'll explain here what the program has to offer.
Is the new free Music Maker fully functioning?
With the free version of Music Maker, we want to present a product that makes music production available to everyone.
The version here is fully functioning and has all the functions required to produce a song.
This makes it easy for you to arrange your own songs using the included loops and then record your voice or instruments using a microphone. Furthermore, you can also record your music ideas using a MIDI controller and edit these afterwards using the MIDI editor.
Which features does Music Maker have?
The Music Maker bundle contains the following:
- 1 Soundpool:
