Hello Magix!

Im running the trial at the moment, wanna try it out before i buy it! I have a question about, how can i add a track into Magix like Rihanna - Bitch Better Have My Money, so i can remix it and do something about the track!

I have bought the track from iTunes and have it on my computer

 

Have a nice day

Hi

Assuming you have bought  the track as a mp3 or some other audio file format.

. . . . i can remix it and do something about the track . . . .

You cannot do this to an audio file - the audio does not have the instruments and vocals as seperate objects/tracks which you can manipulate / remix.

Also the audio file may be DRM'd (protected) which means you may not be able to extract it from iTunes

You cannot do this with any audio file - an audio file has all the instruments/vocals mixed down and exported to produce the final product; once this is done all the individual recorded tracks are combined and you cannot seperate them again.

To do a remix you need the original multi track recordings from which the audio file was produced and it is very unlikely that the record company will release them - they are the property of that company.
