How to use the 12 GB Independence Content Library in Magix Music Maker 18

Your question refers to… Music Maker Special Editions

How is the 12 GB Independence Content  Library content that is packed with Magix Music Maker Production Suite on 2 DVDs supposed to be used? The manual is silent on it's use, merely mentioning its presence!

The content is not of the SoundPool type where you add by clicking 'add styles'. I did that and could not import anything. Instaed it is described as sampler workstation. It's mind-boggling that the Manual just does not say anything about it other than that , 'It's a complete Workstation for professional music production'.

I contacted Magix help, and the also have no clue how to use it! They even asked to scan my computer to verify the problem when my question was clear: How do i use the 12 GB Independence Content Library that comes with Music Maker 18 Production Suite?

 

Whern I open the Independence Libgrary Content DVD, I see the following folders:

    Image Files
    Layers

Image Files folder has the following files:

    Independence Content Image  File 01.ytif 1.8GB
    Independence Content Image  File 02.ytif 1.7GB
    Independence Content Image  File 03.ytif 1.5GB
    Independence Content Image  File 04.ytif 1.7GB

Layers has the following sub-folders:

    Independence - Basic Instruments
    Independence -  Pro Instruments

Inside those folders are a whole lot of instruments such as Organs, Electric Guitars, Organs, Arrangers, Saxophones, pipe organs, orchetral etc. Now all the instruments are in .ytil (Image files are in .ytif) so I guess its .ytif (file) and ytil (layers).

At least in your years with Magix, you may have come accross such files and hopefully you will be more helpful now that you know the content and its arrangements as well as file extensions.

How do I use such content?

With Samplitude Music Studio 2013, is easy:

- Install Samplitude Studio 2013

AND IF YOU HAVE THE INDEPENDENCE DVD LIBRARIES then:

Insert DVD #1

- From the Start button, select the All Programs/MAGIX/Samplitude Studio 2013/Independence Content Installation icon

then it will prompt where to copy the libraries (from DVD to Hard disk) normally in C:\Program Files....

Just confirm and the library will be installed.

at a certain point it will prompt for the DVD#2

I inserted both dvds as you said. A window then appeared saying to restart independence. I assumed this meant just reopen music studio. However, all of the soundpools and new instruments I was expecting have not appeared. How can I add them. They are saved on my computer due to the download, but they are not appearing in the soundpool list, and "add styles" doesn't seem to do anything.

Please help

As this post is very old you better ask new question to get proper answer.

I had been searching answer and finally got something. You can check the link below for details.

http://pro.magix.com/en/audio-plugins/independence.579.html

 I would like to say, as in the above link you will find Basic Sampler workstation can be used as VST plugin therefore, to check, insert the DVD in to the computer rom, if it opens automatically exit the window from My computer right click on the DVD Icon and click OPEN, when it will be opened you can see the contents of the DVD. If you find and Help read that or if there is/are DLL file/files then it is surely VST plugin.

Also the Magix Music Maker MX Production suite PDF says as follows but not how to use.

Independence Basic Sampler Workstation
including 12 GB Premium Library
Independence is a professional sampler workstation with over 500
inspiring instruments, arrangers and step sequencer patches.
The integrated 12 GB Premium Sample Library contains all instrument
samples that you need to get started with professional music
production: pianos, organs, electric and acoustic drums, electric and
acoustic guitars, electric and acoustic bass guitars, world, ethno,
orchestral and industrial percussion, wind instruments, synthesizers
and lots more.

Hope this info will help you.

EXTRA: to use VST Plug in you have to install or or copy the folder on computer then from the Music Maker browse locate VST Plugin then add. In older version of Music Maker to open setting is by pressing "Y" key but new version use "P" key.

I am sharing this according to my MMM 16 Premium experience and hope it will also work for you.

Give a try.

If you got Sound/Audio/Contents on DVDs, first open your Music Maker then insert DVD 1 then 2 if they are in serial. As you will insert DVD in to the DVD Rom of computer there is a possibility Music Maker will ask you where to save. Please save it on Hard drive after saving both, from Add button if it is available in your Music Maker add to the library. If there isn't any Add button, then from File Manager browse and drag and drop on arranger.

You can find more details in the pdf tutorial with text and images.
