Music Creator 6 is the latest version of the entry level music creation software from Cakewalk. It turns your computer into a personal recording studio and gives you everything that you need to begin creating, editing and publishing music with professional quality. Once you have polished your tunes you can burn your own CD or publish it to SoundCloud and from there to Facebook or Twitter.
Based on some of the same technology that goes into Calkwalk's high end professional editing software SONAR X1 it has a sound pedigree behind it. Since musical software does have certain needs for it to operate properly, you should examine the system requirements to confirm your system is ready to handle it.
To create music in Music Creator 6, you have what are called song construction kits – once you get comfortable with the building of songs, you can bypass these and work on your own. These give you the ability to create great sounding backing tracks through the use of over 1000 professionally recorded guitars, keyboards, drums, and more.
There are dozens of templates that include rock, hip-hop, orchestral, and more that will get you started. Once you find the musical loops that you want to use, you just drag and drop them into your project. You then arrange them in an order that you want, press play, listen, make adjustments, add more instruments, and repeat until your song is complete.
Do you play an instrument like keyboard or guitar? Perhaps you sing? You can use Music Creator to record vocals or any other instrument that can be recorded using a sound card, USB microphone, or Firewire audio interface. You can also record and edit MIDI using the Piano Roll View.
