Can you import MM Premium soundpools from earlier versions such as MM 2013 to MM 2015 or MM 2017.  I'm using Windows 7 Home?  Files are stored on my flash drive.  Here's what I'm dealing with.  Files cannot be opened extension .TAK or .OGG to use file insert the medium USBOFD my flash dr. and repeat process.  I'm lost.  Do I need to copy files from flash dr and save to HHD before trying to add to styles?  Thanks for anybody' help.

Hi,

When you install MMM and soundpools, they are normally installed under:

C:\Users\Public\Documents\MAGIX\Common\Soundpools

Look there to see what you have. Copy all other folders and files that you have on flashdrives or even under Magix/Download to be under Soundpools in the path shown above. None are specific to a version. In MMM, under Soundpools, click on Add and navigate to the Soundpools folder, let it run, and all should show up. Sometimes they don't and you may have to add again but go to a specific Soundpool, like Chillout under +1000 Sounds, and add it. Some so-called soundpools contain loops that cannot be used in the same way as normal loops and they have to be accessed through the File Manager.

In the past, all loops were .ogg and .tak files. Soundpools purchased under Store in the present MMM have a proprietary format, .mxcOGG, that cannot be read by older versions of MMM, or by any other Magix program, apparently. These will be under Store as shown below.

I have a tutorial that shows all of this that should be published within the next week.

BTW, it is very helpful if people would indicate in the subject of a message what the problem is. Your other message that you posted says "Need Help." My reply to that would have been, "Press on F1." I'm getting grouchy in my old age.
