Not familiar with this latest version, but I used to use prior Magix Music Studio versions. Perfectly serviceable but it somehow always seemed like a poor stepchild of the big guns programs like Sonar and Cubase. I do recall reading however that this latest version has brought it a long way forward in establishing itself as a high level product. I can't imagine what it could do that others can't though, - cook dinner? Now that would make me want to have it!
