Music Maker update

Hi all,

Music Maker update went live today. Please find below the official patch notes.

Changes in patch compared to

  • Crash during smart preview of TAK files fixed
  • Implementation to prevent peakmeter crashes changed
  • Adjustments made for improved crash evaluation
  • Error dialog handling for audio record/playback errors changed
  • MIDI editor menu bar sometimes not visible fixed

As always, the patch will be deployed via the program's automatic update function, which you can also trigger via the "Update program online" option in the "Help" menu. (In more current product generations, this will take you to the start dialogue to trigger the patch download.)  Please keep in mind that, under the current Music Maker product concept, you'll be able to patch your way up to the current product generation and revision from any version starting in generation 25.x of the software.

Patch does not install!! I get a "dear customer, the patch cannot be installed error page and to contact support, which I did. When is Magix going to ever fix this bugged out software? My undo button has been frozen for weeks, it consistently cuts out and I lose my work. So I patiently wait for the patch that goes live today and that doesn't work either!!! What the heck is going on at magix???

I have updated both my desktop and laptop to with no problems whatsoever. Both work fine

I have not had any problems with Undo with either the previous patch or this one.

There must be some other problem on your end - hardware, OS or anti-virus software.

Hi all,

Michael had a support ticket with us and ended up being able to install the patch. Unfortunately, I cannot even fathom exactly what step of the patch installation procedure could produce that kind of error message - even in theory. However, if anybody actually finds themselves in the situation where they are having a problem with the automatic patch installation (e.g. with the main application not terminating properly to run the patch installer), they are always welcome to manually download and run the patch from this link:

Please note that this is just a smaller, incremental patch - not a full program installer this time. So, you would already have to be on the previous version to successfully install it.

Hope this helps!

Hi, is it just me? Each time I try to work, my Musicmaker turns incredibly slow after a few "moves", there is no realtime interaction, I have to close (2 minutes just to get it closed) and turn on again !! Is there anyone that can help? Thanks
