Hi there. I just picked up Music Maker Premium (2017?). I'm running Windows 10. I found some interesting virtual instruments from Alan Vista (http://www.alanvista.com/marimbaphonic/) and I downloaded them. After looking around at the Magix blog and this forum, I put them in a directory and pointed Music Maker at said directory in the settings (and using the 'add new instrument' dialog, too.) The instrument window refreshes, but my new instruments don't show up. I have a couple questions:
1.) Are there limitations on where I can put them? I chose an existing Music Maker directory that seemed to also contain the included Magix instruments. (C:\Users\Public\Documents\MAGIX\Common\MxSynth)
2.) The download from Alan Vista unzipped into a format I'm unfamiliar with (I'm brand new to music software). I'm wondering if I need to arrange it differently. For examble: BellsEbuth unzipped into
- BellsEbuth_x64 (folder)
- BellsEbuth.instrument (folder)
I've both left the BellsEbuth folder as it is in the MxSynth directory, and extracted the BellsEbuth.dll so it's in the MxSynth directory. None of this seems to make the new instruments appear. Any advice is appreciated.
