No previous recording experience is required when you launch Cakewalk’s Music Creator 5! Its video tutorials and getting started guide assists you through installation and setup, making it easier for you to plug in your microphone, MIDI controller, guitar or any other instrument and immediately start recording. MC 5 features a brand new, simplified user interface with drag and drop editing options, new track templates and assistant tools. Don't have a band? Add your own backing tracks with MC 5’s pre-loaded loops or create your own with the hundreds of virtual instruments and effects, included in the software. When you’re finished with your project, burn it to CD or upload it to your website, blog and MySpace page to share with friends.
