Those of you into making noises in the basement can now make noises right on your Windows 8 device using this neat little music creation app. Music Maker Jam was even showcased by Microsoft in a best apps list recently.
You get access to four music styles right off the bat — these include jazz, dubstep, tech house and rock. More are available as paid options. The official description:
“Start a jam session – anytime, anywhere! Music Maker Jam is the first app that combines easy music creation with maximum fun. In no time at all you’ll be producing your own hits thanks to a huge selection of professionally produced loops and styles!
Simply combine the song parts and instruments to get the sound you want, then adjust the key and the tempo or add some spectacular effects in real-time. Intuitive touchscreen control puts the full studio experience in the palm of your hand! And the best thing is, all of the sounds are perfectly synchronized to keep you on the beat when you’re jamming live in front of your friends and fans.”
After selecting a music style, you can get to work in the DJ Control Panel and combine the song parts with instruments to create the sound you want. A selection of effects is available that can be added to the songs as filters. Recorded tracks can easily be saved as MP3 files.
The app is available on all Windows 8 platforms, and perfectly optimized for touch. And better yet, it is regularly updated with each new update bringing several new additions and improvements.
