과거에는 Cakewalk, 지금은 Sonar시리즈로 유명한 Calkwalk社에서 Music Creator 6를 새롭게 발표했습니다.
Music Creator 6는 오디오와 미디 레코딩, 믹싱이 가능한 DAW인 것 같네요. 그런데 포지셔닝이 조금 애매하네요. Apple의 Logic이 프로용이라면 Garage Band는 일반인이나 취미로 하는 사람들도 부담없이 즐길 수 있도록 기능이나 GUI등이 최적화 되어 있는데 이 Music Creator라는 놈 잘 감이 안오네요. 가격을 보아하니 light user를 위한것이 맞긴 한데 조작하기 쉽다거나 그런 내용은 없고 기능 많다고만 자랑을 하니... 뭐 사진을 보니 화면은 꽤 이쁘긴 하군요.
국내에는 사용하는 사람들이 거의 없는 것 같지만 꾸준히 나오는 걸 보니 인기가 어느정도 있나봅니다. 하긴 시퀀서 만든 짬밥이 몇년인데 프로그램은 괜찮을 것 같습니다.
동영상도 다른 DAW나 VSTi에 비해 좀 심심하군요. 역시 동영상 광고는 Propellerheads가 갑인가 봅니다.
