Newly Released Software Features Innovative Music Recommendation Technology That Lets Users Explore and Enjoy Their Music Collection as If Traveling Through Space

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - MAGIX Entertainment Corp., a leading developer of software, online services and digital content, today announced the release of MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe, the latest version of their best-selling(1) music management PC software MP3 Maker. This latest release gives users a faster, more effective and enjoyable solution for managing their music collections that can now range into the thousands or even tens of thousands of songs. Whether on a PC, on mobile players, cellular phones, car radios or on their stereo, MP3 Maker 14 deluxe works with the most popular devices including iPod, PSP and many others. The new MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe is available at top retailers, online partners and directly from the MAGIX website at www.magix.com.

A New Universe of Musical Enjoyment

The new MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe features "MUFIN," an integrated music recommendation technology developed in cooperation with the Fraunhofer institute in Germany, creators of the MP3 format. Based on a computerized algorithmic sound analysis of music, MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe can "listen" to a song then find and recommend similar songs which can be automatically compiled into playlists.

Additionally, the new MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe further leverages this MUFIN technology by applying it to a user's entire song collection to create a visual, personalized representation of their entire music library. "Mufin Vision," as this cutting-edge feature is called, analyzes an entire music collection, regardless of its size, and lets users explore it visually as a voyage through their own unique, personalized musical universe. Music lovers are able to navigate smoothly through all the different "constellations" of similar sounding songs in their collections and automatically build playlists, enabling them to further enjoy their music libraries in a totally different, personalized and unique way.

The Perfect Music Mix for Every Occasion

For aspiring DJs and people looking to create their own special song mixes and remixes, MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe features an integrated DJ console that lets users mix their own music live and create perfect playlists to fit every occasion and event. Have a lot of songs on vinyl or tapes? MAGIX MP3 Maker 14 deluxe also offers the ability create MP3s and digital files from music in LPs and Cassettes. The software also has a wide array of easy-to-use, practical functions for managing and controlling music collections that can often include tens of thousands of tracks. With features like the sound-based duplicate search which can automatically analyze all songs in a collection to identify and eliminate tracks that are repeated even if they are labeled differently, as well as ID3 tag creation featuring AudioID technology that identifies songs by their sound and can correctly complete song track information for displaying on MP3 players -- it's a breeze to manage even the largest, most complex music library with complete ease.
