Some users may not need every option in the apps designed for professional use. In many cases, they will only slow down or be a problem. Music Maker is an alternative.
Magix developed this tool to create music, record instruments live, mix them, and finalize your music.
It has its own loops, sample library and a large collection of effects and instruments that covers almost every need for the composer.
Because each element can be highlighted by a color, the interface makes it very easy to edit each line. It also has an Explorer, which allows you to drag and drop samples.
Music Maker is a good choice if you're able to use a sequencer but don't want to have too many choices that you won't make the most out of.
