Music Maker Jam is a free Windows 8 app for creating music tracks to download and use in multimedia projects. Music Maker Jam provides four styles of music that you can modify (additional styles are available for purchase). Choose a style then use the virtual instrument tracks to modify the music track. You can increase or decrease the volume of each instrument and modify the tempo of your tracks. You can also add or remove an instrument from your music tracks. When you're happy with the sound of the music you've created you can download your music as an MP3 file.
Applications for Education
Music Maker Jam could be a good tool for students to use to create recordings to use as bumper music in podcasts or to use as the background music in a video project.
