Music 3000 on PS2 - Greatest Music Simulator Ever?

Post by yethboth » Mon Feb 25, 2008 10:06 am

This has got to be the best Music Sim I have ever had and the amount of tunes I have created from this is incredible. :mrgreen:

Roll on Music 4000 on PS3 (hopefully, please god). :mrgreen:

With the original Music & 2000 I used to use a scart lead with separate audio leads into the back of my tape deck. Which in-turn was connected to my amp which was connected to my PC's sound card.

The (recorded) sound was OK but there was a bit of hiss. I think this could have been down to the quality of the lead though.

Much preferred Magix on the PC. Similar idea, but not limited in its sample selection.

I do have the GBA port of Music though. Its pants, but only cost me a couple of quid.

Any music making program that don't allow you to input your own samples is a waste of time.
I found the Codemasters Music "games" to be pointless on the PS1.
I did pick one up for the PS2 for a quid from a bootfair and used it to make the Weekend gamer Theme tune, but apart from that I could never really see the point when there are far better PC versions out there which are not so limiting..

I used to use the headphone jack from the tv and stick it into a portable digital recording desk. It was pretty good for making your own spaghetti western soundtracks.

But marginally more expensive. Unless you torrent it. Which we don't condone in any way.

Music 2000 allows you to import samples albeit via CD.

I personally favor FL Studio for my music making although the thing that got me interested in it was actually Music/2000 for the PS1.

I really loved the Music series on PSX. Kinda all went downhill after 2000, but you could come up with some surprising results if you spent a lot of time with it. The sampling was not so good so I didn't use it much but I thought the preset selection was vaied enough for you to make enough unique sounding tracks IF you so desired but it did take a lot of time and effort.

One of those programs where the more you put in, the more you get out.

I disagree on the sampling. With a bit of creativity I found it immensely rewarding. Which leads me to agree with your second point. :)

I too used to love playing around with Music 2000. It's a great little music studio! Music 3000 is quite good, but IMO not as good as 2000.
