You can go to my projects and select one, edit and save under a new file. You also can go to sounds and videos and just drag and drop a sound on a track. The best way to learn is to "play with it" and have fun. There are some problems with music maker 12 deluxe (don't create anything longer than 10 min. if you want to create music in wave form). I use another program to get around the "bugs" and limitations of Music Maker. Just go with it and have fun! Have a GREAT DAY!!!
