Summary: if you are a big music fan and know alot about how music works and how to create it, this game might be a little too boring for you. this game may last you up to 3 days at the most, but eventually you'll grow tiresome of this tool and want to move on to bigger and better things, like i have. this game used to be my prime tool for making what i thought was good music, but when you take a look at all the other stuff out there, this is very minor.
Summary: MTV's Music Generator 2 is an innovative piece of "software" that aspiring musicians will find quite interesting. If you've ever wanted to semi-professionally record your own music, inexpensively, this is your opportunity. Music Generator 2 contains hundreds of samples of professionally recorded percussion, bass licks, keyboard melodies, vocals and guitars. You can then piece these samples together to create your own song.
Excerpt: MTV music generator 2 is ok, it has a great many features and technically there should be nothing holding you back from making your own songs. However, MTV music generator 2 is extremely fiddley and hard to use. you can make your own tunes but only once youve spent half an hour 'fiddleing' with it and working out how to use it. It also doen't look that great which i know isn't a great factor but it is isn't nice to look at something so bland.

Excerpt: When I first heard about MTV Music Generator 2 for the PS2 I quite excited about it as I loved the first one. I heard it was more rock orientated, it does have more rock samples, but not as much as I'd like it to have. Anyway about the game... When I first played it, I had no idea what I was doing and it took about 3 or 4 plays before I got the hang of it, a step-by-step tutorial would have been a good idea, but once you've got into it, the interface is very powerful.
Excerpt: As a fan of Codemasters Music 2000 on the PS1, I was awaiting this release with baited breath, but I have to say there are a few irritating problems which could have been avoided. That said, this is still a class and very clever product. It makes superb use of the PS2's sound capabilities. 48 channels of sound, 11000 samples and the ability to record your own through the USB sampler add-on (£20 extra). This is the first irritation!
Pros: You can create pretty much any kind of music
