Magix Music Maker 2015 Premium

I recently had the opportunity to review the latest Magix Music Maker; Magix Music Maker 2015 Premium. Magix music maker; as the name states; is a music maker program; but one that is aimed at the average user and not a professional musician.

What it helps you do is use loops provided and VST to produce music using multiple tracks; making up a tune using small parts at a time. You can produce something that is small or large over time using this method. Also, as its so easy to just pull these loops into the tracks you can see how it sounds on the fly. Its amazing how easy it is.

When producting this music you can use supplied loops, you can also buy DVD’s from Magix with loops on there as well as using their download service. These loops generally sorted in style and then instrument folders which means you can easily pick all loops with in a single style to make your music OR even multiple styles. Its amazing how it can all mix together.

Instead of me trying to explain more; why not take a look at the video…

Corel Graphics Suite X7 Review

Some time ago I had the oportunity to review Corel’s Graphic Suite X6 which I was excited to do as it contained a vector graphics suite, photo editor as well as webpage editor and other interesting tools like one to search for CC images etc.

So when X7 came out I reached out and were happy to receive a review copy from Corel – although this time it was the download version.

I can say that with X6 it had a fantastic manual so I presume that the boxed version of X7 is the same; however this look and review is of just the software products.

You can check the video below for this look through and review; as a final opinion though I thing this is a great product and although not cheap it works out much cheaper than the other suite on the market (Adobe’s) and offers more than enough functionality for me…

Ever wanted to produce your own TV show; streamed across the Internet – welcome to Wirecast

Have you ever wanted to produce and star in your own TV program?

On the Internet there are a number of sites out there that will allow you to create your own live stream show for people to view; most if not all of these sites will allow you to use free software to do this. However, wouldn’t it be better to have 1 piece of software that can do this as well as take input from multiple cameras?

Also, wouldn’t it be good if that same piece of software could also record your show so  you can put it up on YouTube after the live stream ends? Well there just so happens to be such a software product and check out my review of Wirecast below.

Which virus scanner / Antivirus software should I use on my computer

There are a few good free virus scanner / Antivirus  software in the public domain these days; and free doesn’t mean bad. But what free does mean that you will probably find less time dedicated to the free version over and beyond the paid for version.PC Virus

Now, don’t get me wrong. I have used free virus scanner software, usually on a second computer such as my notebook. However, for my main use computer I will always use a paid for scanner because I know the virus library is much more up to date. You also generally get more extra protection from thinks like spam, firewall, etc these days.

There are a few of these I have used, but I will talk about the 3 I have used most here.

Firstly my favorite virus scanner which is ESET NOD32 AntiVirus and more recently ESET Smart Security. When I first used NOD32 Antivirus it was because it was the recommended for gamers. It had the smallest memory and CPU footprint and was the fastest virus scanner I had ever used. It caught all virus that I ever saw, although in that time I only encountered about 2. More recently I moved up to the Smart Security suite which was also amazing. It caught many a webpage trying to run malicious scripts. In fact, this is more of a worry these days from my point than virus software themselves; and this is also one area you find that the free virus scanners do not cover. As this is the quickest and certainly my best it earns first place.

Next and number two in my top is Kaspersky Antivirus and Kaspersky Internet Security, I’m infact currently using  Kaspersky Internet Security  2013 myself – mainly as got deal on 2012 license and when got Window 8 they allowed me to download 2013 edition through same license.

Again, Kaspersky has caught a number of virus programs in the time I have used it (I have used it in previous years before too, for last 5 years I have alternated between NOD32 and Kaspersky) and now with the Internet Security it is also catching those malicious webpages trying again to run scripts on my computer.

Now it maybe the case that both these over compensate on the malicious scripts; I don’t know; but I do know I would rather they over compensate than under.

The last product I want to talk about is Symantics Norton Security. Now I would say this is the easiest product to pick up in store, although deals usually are better online for all these products (and links I have added have % off cost of each). One down of Norton is that it is the slowest of the 3 I talk about. However, I used Norton for a number of years as it was often bundled with the Norton Utilities.

Norton comes bundled with a number of features to protect the family such as parental controls; to name just one; and so you can see why it is one of the leading security products out there. I used it for 4 or 5 years in my time and it did very well; its only 3rd on list because other two were faster in my use.

All 3 products have regular updates tot their database of virus and malicious code and you will always feel protected in your use of PC and internet (if get security suites).

What are your top 3? Do they differ? If so why; I would love to get your views to see if I change my license come May…

Catalyst Framework for WordPress review

I recently had the fortune to have a review copy of the Catalyst Framework for WordPress.

Unlike the framework I have used in the past (this site uses Genesis); Catalyst is aimed at I would say the more designer type person. Why I say that is that you get out the box a basic theme but also the ability to customize it in every aspect.

Because you can customize it so much you do need to be able to have the vision and so if wanting to put together a great site easy and quick with little work it may not be the framework for you. But please go check out the review and see if its right for you.

Genesis Framework is a great framework for WordPress. Hmm, I do explain it a little better in the video 🙂  Basically this video talks about Genesis showing you what can be done with the framework and a theme (this website being the example).
