Magix Music Studio 2008
- The installation is done it without problem?
no problem, nothing to say!

- Did you encounter any incompatibilities?
say that I do not rewire mastery ... who even when the plant software sometimes!

- Configuration Gnrale is easy?
extremely simple, just two keys keyboard shortcut your checks to the windows setup (I set for the project or Y to configure the software, knowing that one CHAC also provides another window be).

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
yes for the installation and quick handling. As I knew already given the previous version, I got very quickly so I did not find the manual used. having said that for more specific questions, use the software help. a good point: keyboard shortcuts are often indicated and like any good software, they are also parameters.


- What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
we hardly know!

- The software works he correctly on this configuration?
yes when I do not overload temporal effects, lol!

- This software + hardware configuration is stable?
yes, except when using ReWire, it crashes sometimes!


- For how long have you been using it?
I use this version for 6 months, but software that I use since 2005

- What is the specific feature you like best, the least?
PLUS: the simplicity and fast grip that made ​​me will appreciate this program.
Display Mode tools ranging from novice to expert, the basis functions are very easily accessible. all configurable as two keys. like any good software there is the possibility of making its own pre-configures sessions. I really liked the amp simulator and effects pedals.
LESS: This software some logical limits (mainly on the number of tracks, and the bus) because it is a lite version of samplitude. 4 bus may rapidly become insufficient for subgroups. nevertheless have, this software is limited to 64 tracks, which is more than Protools LE is saying!

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I tried Ejay Pro (nothing do with hip hop Ejay, Ejay Techno, etc. ...) and cubase.
is the line of samplitude which is best for me!

some tools are not excellent (EQ Settings, Delay / Reverb) but the quality is reasonable. others are very useful as Reveals the remix agent.
It comes with some VST whose number and quality do not affect behavior and negligible but the extraordinary (synth rhythm box, simulated amp, effect pedals more ...) . more, for novices, most tools are available as spots: for example, it proposes a set of tools to deal with a battery (a rest of pRSET, but it's a beginner)

- How do you report qualitprix?
software whose performance is more than close for 60 professional tools, you can not test!!

- With the exprience, you do again this election? ...
you're deaf or something, I just tell you: YOU CAN NOT TEST
Let's be clear, this is a lite version of a software professional is one Samplitude LE, no less! So despite its limitations is still a business tool.

Alternat Runner's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Magix Music Studio 2008
No installation problems. You place the CD and you just have to wait until the install completes. No incompatibilities encountered, especially since I realized afterwards that the 2007 was still present on the SD.

The manual seems a little inadequate, especially for the MIDI.


Config ':
CORE DUO-2 (2.13 ghz)
-2 GB of RAM
-1 SD 80 GB + 1 SD of 320 GO
LCD-22 "

No problems with this config apart few crashes (see below).


I use since 2 months via card digital audio Behringer (inputs and outputs RCA / liaison USB).

Strengths: This is a comprehensive studio next to the prize of plug-in effects that make their job very well and can even stimulate creativity (Elastic Audio). Virtual instruments are very interesting and usable as is. The MIDI part also seems very complete, even if the manual is a bit terse on the subject. Editing audio is simplicime and, in general, I prefer to clearly SAM08 CUBASE. But this is only personal opinion

Weaknesses: presuqe nothing if not a crash in formal-generated effects "Vintage Suite" when they are manipulated during playback of a track. A unless it is in my config? But that surprise me:

Anyway for the price (between € 50 and € 60) quality interface and sound large quantity effects (and possible integrate others VST and DirectX) that go beyond simple gadget, you can buy eyes closed!

Magix Music Studio 2008
The older versions (2006) audio and midi spars into two programs, I oublibr /> Magix until this year, needing a MIDI keyboard I have invested in Magix music maker 2008, another product just as valid.
I talk with friends, and it shows me this famous studio 8 Samplitude to tunes!

-Installation: easy, quick online registration.

No date-incompatibility in Windows XP Pro SP2, AMD or Intel core two duo.

EMU PCI 404 sound cards. USB, a small M-Audio Fast Track and an Edirol (Roland) UA-4FX.

The configuration-gnrale is easy, paramtrages maps, audio, midi, latency, everything is accessible only. Online help is clear and more, the mix of audio and MIDI tracks is simple and is the last rsultats my humble opinion, especially for the price.

-The manual is clear, but still not enough as it is said about the dj vsti, vst limits.

-I will say that the price for everything is, indeed is great, I just found a
site that compares prices and quality software for the Magix is ​​not as yet on the market at the time of study. But arriving at the top of the apps from 50 to 70 known products and trs onreux Exceeds 1000?

-I put 10, because since I took over at Magix dvd loop still reasonable prices, I say no, because APRS perfect and beautiful description of Doomfred
on 22/01/2008, you feel very small, because it says it all!


-My computer: motherboard gigabyte and asus. CPU Intel E6750 and AMD 4000 +, 2G ram.
Dj-sound card cites: Edirol, Emu, M-Audio. (PCI and USB)
-No worries, c works.
Trs-latency low, fast shipping.


I use it for two months.
"I love his style prsentation Samplitude, the limits would be the least vst.
Yes, and the complexity of some 200 pages absorbing forcing in English is Drout,
see dcourageante by beginners in computer music.
Qualitprix-Report: UNBEATABLE!
-What a question, of course it does.

Magix Music Studio 2008
The installation does not pose a problem.
Just remember to leave the DVD in the drive for the first launch of the software.
Everything is ok!
I have not opened the manual .... thing of the past precedents.


My config: Athlon 64 X2 4200 +, 2GB Corsair Twin X DDR, Gigabyte K8NF-9-RH
No conflict with my config.
me all that stable air ....


After the disappointments of the 207 version, I was cautious. Even with the patch, my 2007 version did not work properly. I tested the software on the PC of a friend who bought it.
So ... how to say .... WOUAAAAAHOUUUUU! seems rather appropriate.

I mainly tested for MIDI. Well, it does really well.
The MIDI editor is a wonder (although there is still some bug display on the toolbar). A true clone of the Cubase SX in ergonomics. Frankly, I like.
Really is a treat. The top is having the same time, the same window on the piano roll, the partition editor and CC track. Super convenient.
Moreover, the partition editor is really good too and easy to use.

This time, VST compatibility is complete and the new sound banks that come with VITA are really nice. In particular, honors the orchestral section which is (in my opinion) than the EDIROL ORCHESTRAL (still worth the € 400).
The use of external synth works without problems.

I'll add comments as and when.

PS: I do not 10/10, because it must still be a testicle somewhere (looking good)

EDIT: I found something pretty bad ... management multitimbral VSTi is somewhat bizarre. And explanations of the manual illuminate nothing. almost.
So, it's a bit boring! I must say.
But good for the price, it's still a beautiful animal.
Having owned successively version 2003, 2004, 2007 and now 2008 is by far the most successful
