Play Guitar Solos on Your PC

MAGIX Music Maker 12 Deluxe Turns Your PC Into a Musical Instrument

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 8, 2007 -- For all those who thought homemade music on the computer was lifeless and synthetic-sounding, prepare to be amazed by the new MAGIX Music Maker 12 deluxe. Why is that? Because of the new virtual acoustic instruments included in the software that sound just as if you were playing them. Not only that, they're even easier to play than their real counterparts since you don't have to learn any sheet music or even practice! With these and many more new features, version 12 deluxe of the award-winning MAGIX Music Maker software is setting new benchmarks in quality and continuing to build upon the pioneering vision of previous versions: Creating professional sounding music is easy and no longer requires musical training or prior technical knowledge. MAGIX Music Maker 12 deluxe is available for purchase at top retail stores for $59.99 as well as on the MAGIX company website at www.magix.com

Vital Instruments for professional sound

MAGIX Music Maker 12 deluxe is equipped with all-new, virtual "Vital instruments": acoustic guitar, drums, E-piano, grand piano and E-bass. All five Vital Instruments, so-called because of their "lively" sound, have been developed by Yellow Tools, award-winning sampling and content specialists. The acoustic guitar, for example, comes with realistic slide and picking sounds. Thanks to their professional sound quality, it's almost impossible to tell these PC instruments from real ones (you can find a downloadable sample below).

A complete song is just a click away

And for those who like things to be as easy as possible, you can make use of the thousands of sound building blocks or the tried and tested Song Maker, which automatically creates an entire music piece in the style of your choice. If you want to let the whole world enjoy your music, why not publish your creations as Podcasts? You can do it straight from inside the program!
