If you somehow manage to get tird of playing Guitar Hero and Rock Band, as inconceivable as
that might be right now, you could always consider making your own music.  ExtremeTech looks at 3 music creation suites, that will let you compose what is in your imagination with your mouse.  Not all of these are created equal, and while it might be tempting to jump into this by picking up professional level software, you might find yourself overwhelmed.

"Who needs a band? If you can jot down a few lyrics, wield a mouse, and maybe bang some keys on a MIDI keyboard, you can

create your very own music. The process can be as simple as dragging a few ready made loops onto a timeline or as demanding

as editing an entire tune note by note, complete with vocals, guitar, drums, and synth.

Sometimes, the question comes down to power or simplicity. That's what we're faced with today, as we examine three software

suites that allow you to lay down music tracks to create that song running through your head—the one you're sure would be a

radio hit destined to make you a rock star. The offerings are: Cakewalk SONAR Home Studio 6 XL, Sony ACID Music Studio 7.0,

and MAGIX Music Maker 12 Deluxe."
