MAGIX Music Maker Professional Audio Software
Presto! Rave Music
If you want to add music to your video productions legally, you have a few options. You can purchase a buyout music CD, record music yourself or use a computer to help you make royalty-free music. MAGIX Entertainment?s Music Maker Professional will help you make good sounding original music mixes, from almost any computer.
Video producers, like commercial producers and event videographers, who need a variety of music, will appreciate Music Maker Professional?s features. Internet multimedia producers can use it to create streaming video files, incorporating both music and effect-laden video. Let?s take a look at this interesting piece of software.
The minimum system requirements for MAGIX Music Maker Pro are very basic. Almost any computer that can run Windows95/98/NT can run Music Maker Pro. The manufacturers list a Pentium 166MHz with 32MB RAM as the minimum. They don?t list recommended system requirements, but this software takes 10MB more RAM than Windows requires to run, so if you have 64MB RAM, you shouldn?t have any trouble.
Installing Music Maker Pro is a simple process. The designers of the software were careful to make sure it doesn?t automatically overwrite your QuickTime or DirectX files. Overall, the installation process is simple and straightforward, and shouldn?t intimidate anyone who is even vaguely familiar with computers.
The main function of Music Maker Pro is to create royalty-free music that you can add to your video productions. Creating music in Music Maker Pro is easy, and doesn?t require any musicianship (although if you have an ear for music, you?ll probably get better results than someone who doesn?t). MAGIX includes eight CDs worth of audio samples that you can drag into Music Maker Pro.
