Welcome to the Magix user to user forums.

The default storage location for Magix Music Maker Soundpools is C:\Users\Public\Documents\MAGIX\Common\Soundpools.

To add your downloaded files essentially you need to unzip them and place them into location.

BUT there is rather more to it than that!

  • Music Maker Soundpools contain additional data which the program uses to identify key, tempo, style, etc. This data is used to populate the information you see in the Soundpools tab of MM. Have a look in that storage location I gave to see what, exactly, each Soundpool "needs" to include!
  • Without that additional data the Soundpools you have bought may not function in the same way as others you have, or even may not function and be accessible to MM at al!

If you tell us exactly which soundpools you have purchased we may be able to tell you if they will "work" in MM.

@Stinkarooman You should be able to load these loops fine through the internal file browser in Music Maker or Windows Explorer. Browse to the folder where you extracted the ZIP files to. Then drag and drop the audio files into your project.
