Music Maker Movie Score

williamandrews06 wrote on 9/7/2015, 3:32 PM

I have just bought Music Maker 2015 (basic version) and trying to learn how to use it. I now see that there is a seldom mentioned Movie Score version. Movie score making is my reason for buying Music Maker as I did not know there was a specific version for this purpose. This is the question: Is there much difference between Music Maker and Movie Score Maker? Is it worth getting Movie Score? I generally don't like the 'hip hop' type of music which Music Maker seems to be based on. Does Movie Score use different type of music? Any advice welcome.

Thanks, Bill

Hi

. . . . I generally don't like the 'hip hop' type of music which Music Maker seems to be based on . . . .

If this is the download version it sounds like you have not downloaded and installed the second half of the program which consists of more sounpools, effects, and instruments - see under Help, Update program / upgrade functions, Download free synthesizer and sound packages

The Movie Score edition is a cut down version of MMM 2015 having a small selection of Soundpools, should you require further Soundpools then you have to purchase them, whereas Music maker comes with a lot more Soundpools of different genres - below is a small part of the Sooundpool list that comes wih MMM 2015

 

Note you may not have all the Movie Score versions I have collected over the years.

Hi,

I suggest that you watch my tuturial about Getting Started in MusicMaker.

Also, I suggest that you get the Premium version as you will quickly find limitation.

Thanks for your replies.I will certainly look at the tutorial, I did have the premium version but somehow I wiped it off my computer when I started trying to use it! It was a download version but I don't know how it got there in the first place. I have recently purchased the boxed version of Music Maker and it has two Soundpool discs with it, so I'll look at those.I'll see if there are any more packages to download. I can see from John EB's reply that there is far more to the Premium version. I was basically wondering whether the Movie Score version had something different in it with regard to synchronising video with music. Does it have a video screen where the video can be viewed whilst 'assembling' the appropriate music for it. Otherwise, what is the difference between Music Maker and the movie score version?

Thanks again,

Bill

Hi,

MusicMaker and the Special Editions look to be close to the same except for the number of tracks and what comes with them. There may be a few other additional features in MM basic. I suggest that you go through them all on the Magix.com site rather than me doing it for you.

MM basic:

  • 6 different Soundpools
  • 99 tracks
  • 4 virtual instruments.
  • More than 3000 new loops & sounds
  • Soundpools from six different genres
  • Record vocals, raps & instruments
  • MIDI Editor: Edit melodies & chords
  • VST 2 support
  • Publish tracks directly online
  • Soundpool DVD Collection 19

MM Movie Score:

  • More than 1500 professional sounds & loops
  • Mix on up to 64 tracks
  • Vita Instrument: Soundtrack Percussion - only 1 instrument?
  • Soundpools: Movie Score Vol. 6 and Vol. 7 - these are probably the ones on the 2 disks that came in the box.

The other Special Editions are similar, it's just that they have at least 1 different instrument, like Rock has Power Guitar.

They all can handle 3 video formats, avi, wmv and the Magix proprietary format (which cannot be used by others).

Go into the Magix.com site and listen to the different soundpools that are offered. Also, go into Catooh.com and look at what the have. Here is the web page for just the movie score volumes (13).

If you play music, like on an electronic keyboard and you want to record MIDI, then you will want a lot instruments and power - thus Premium is the best version to buy.
