Magix Music Maker's innate strength is its ability to help you create compositions through a simple drag-and-drop arrangement window and its vast library of more than 3,000 sounds and loops. There are also a variety of virtual instruments that you can use via MIDI controllers to create audio tracks within this audio editor.

This audio editor is set up like a digital audio workstation (DAW). You have a multi-track arrangement window with your transport, file manager and other tools located at the bottom of your window. The interface is cleanly arranged and easy to navigate. Magix Music Maker doesn’t bombard you with a cluster of editing tools and buttons atop your window like other audio software does. The presentation of the interface is manageable, especially considering the amount of effects and filters Magix Music Maker contains.

This audio editing software has one of the largest effects and filter libraries compared to its competition. There are an array of reverbs, distortions, compressors and other effects that you can apply to your recordings or loops once they are in your arrangement window.

This music editing software can record up to 99 audio tracks simultaneously. You can use it to record your podcast or even entire band sessions.

Many audio editors boast various tools for audio restoration, such as click and pop reducers and other noise removers. When it comes to audio restoration, Music Maker is lacking on all fronts. Audio restoration is a large part of audio editing, especially for those looking to digitize a vinyl or cassette collection. While you can import these to your Magix software, you will not have the tools to remove the noise associated with analog-style recordings.

Magix is compatible with all Windows operating systems we tested for, including Windows 7 and 8. If you need help discovering all that this program is capable of, you can view the tutorials and user forums.

MAGIX Music Maker Summary:

Magix Music Maker offers the tools to create interesting and unique compositions from its large library of sounds and recording capabilities. This audio editor does lack audio restoration tools that are often synonymous with audio editing software. If you are looking to record multiple audio tracks at once as well as incorporate and arrange a variety of samples into your compositions, it is worth your consideration.
