MAGIX Music Studio 2019 is a straightforward tool for recording and producing music.

The program doesn't have the power of the high-end Samplitude Music Studio, but you still get all the core features you need to produce quality songs.

There's support for recording two stereo and four mono tracks in 16-bit/48 kHz studio quality.

You get several virtual instruments, including an electric piano, guitar, drum machine and synth.

You're able to mix on up to 64 channels, apply various effects (10-band equalizer, time and pitch stretching), or use the Vocal Tune module to fix pitch problems.

A built-in Mastering Suite gives you full manual control over the finished sound, or you can use an Auto Mastering feature to sort out everything in a few clicks.

Once you've finished, your work can be quickly exported as audio files, or uploaded directly to Facebook, SoundCloud or YouTube.

It's a capable system, but if you need more then Samplitude Music Studio adds a full multi-track recording in 24-bit/ 96 kHz quality, many more virtual instruments (synths, drum machine, harp, flute), Vita Sample Player, 32-bit floating point processing, 64-bit & multicore support for improved performance and MIDI, ASIO, ReWire, MTC and MC support.

It may be at the low end of the MAGIX music range, but MAGIX Music Studio 2019 still has plenty of capable and configurable music production tools to explore. If your needs are straightforward then it'll probably be more than good enough.
