FlexiMusic Review — Rated — ** out of *****

Posted by rexdixon on September 26, 2006

*** The Company – FlexiMusic asked me for this review; and Scot Duke a professional writer, blogger, and podcaster who has written the book – How to Play Business Golf had the time in his busy schedule to do this for me today — if you want a true unbiased opinion of your piece of software, company, etc.. I will be willing to review it… but remember – if you are not ready – you will get reviewed – HONESTLY! ***

FlexiMusic Review — Rated — ** out of ***** By Scot Duke I tried to walk through the tutorial of creating a New Track to record and never was able to get rid of the track music that was programmed in the new track. My review of this program is that the learning curve for a novice is long and would be very discouraging to want to learn this program if you already were using another program. My suggestion is they develop a wizard or some auto program that helps with the generation of the basics for the program and then once that is set up the tweaking of the tracks would be easier.

The kids program would be good for kids and the MP3 encoder seems to be straight forward, but again, I had to fumble around with the help screen to find where I was to go to get it to work, which I could not get it to work. Not a user friendly operation. I think this program would work better with someone who has used several different sound edit programs. My audio editing and creation experience is with Acid, Audacity and Cool Edit. This one got me since there were no clear cut buttons or pull down windows that were common in all of the programs I have a basic knowledge of. The lack of this program not being user friendly will keep it from being widely accepted by people like me who do not have the time to go through and learn another program. Especially when there are sites out on the internet like ClickCaster that is just click and record and you are gone. Or upload and you are gone.

The price of this program is affordable and would be good for someone if they wanted to take a week or two and play around with it, but for someone that needs to pop out Podcasts to a large base of rabid fans, write books, blogs, articles speeches, attend meetings, give speeches and seminars all after I play a round of golf each day. Learning this program would not fit into that scheduled. I’d give it TWO stars out of FIVE just because the ability to add instrument noting to a track would be good to have it I could figure out how to get it to work. — Rated — ** out of *****

    An amateur piece of software assessed by an amateur reviewer. Great.
