One of the greatest aspects of all, you'll get the peace of mind of knowing that Music Creator was made by Cakewalk, one of the world's leading audio manufacturers who are primarily devoted to making music creation software for anyone and everyone with an artistic dream. Music Creator 5 was made by musicians, for musicians.

Easy Hookup
No matter what you want to record, Music Creator makes it easy to install and start recording. From guitars, keyboards, vocals, CD samples or any other sound source, just plug it in to your computer’s sound card and start recording up to 24-bit audio quality: 8 bits of resolution higher than any CD. With Music Creator 5, you can even record MIDI performances in perfect time.

Who Needs a Band?!
Even if you don’t have (or want) a band, you can still help your musical vision(s) flourish through Music Creator's virtual instruments. Music Creator 5 includes the new Cakewalk Sound Center, which grants you unlimited access to 150 unique instrument sounds. Among the collection are acoustic and electric guitars, basses, pianos, strings, synths, ethnic instruments and more.

Edit and Mix Like the Pros
Music Creator 5 offers a variety of "views" including Arrange, Drum Editor, traditional Staff Notation, Piano Roll, Synth Rack and Loop Construction. You'll be able to make pinpoint edits to your project in no time flat with a simple click of your mouse. Cut out those silly mistakes and/or assemble an exquisitely perfect track from multiple recordings. You can quickly and easily make new arrangements or remixes as well by simply dragging and dropping.

With Music Creator 5, you can mix with a powerful onscreen mixer without a day's worth of experience. Move faders up and down to adjust volume, pan tracks left and right through the stereo field and sweeten your mix with professional recording studio-quality DSP (Digital Signal Processing) effects like Reverb, Delay, and EQ to truly perfect the mix. If you connect a MIDI keyboard to your computer, you can control your mix with real, tangible knobs and sliders through Active Controller Technology.

Outstanding Effects
New to Music Creator 5 is IK Multimedia™ Amplitube® X-GEAR. Simply plug in your guitar or bass and you'll gain instant access to meticulously modeled amps, effects, microphone models, speaker cabinets and even a tuner. You can even create and save your own custom tones as presets. You can go even further and add more sounds through downloadable expansion packs.

Music Creator 5 includes ten professional studio-quality effects that can be used on any track or bus (audio pathway) simultaneously. You may add up to 24 effects per project and easily switch the effects on or off for quick A/B comparisons.

The collection of effects that comes with Music Creator 5 includes Chorus, Delay, Phaser, Flanger, Reverb, Gate, Compressor, EQ and more. Music Creator 5’s effects provide extremely useful presets for commonly used sounds. Apply these effects on input to hear them as you record, or add them later on for greater versatility in the mixing process. Remember not to mix too much, though! Be sure to allow some room for mastering if it's in your plan.

Share Your Music With The World!
With Music Creator 5, you can make playlists and burn them to CD for fans, family and friends alike. Create online music players with playlists that can then be uploaded to band websites, MySpace™ and Facebook pages, and other internet music sites.
