hey yall music lovers, i just bought the premium bundle music maker 2020 and they gave me samplitude and sound forge studios with a bunch of add ons ,,plug in's and extras,, too!! Back in my day getting some musicians together for a jam was quite a challenge,and getting to a recording studio was very expensive and usually not worth the money,,,,,starving artist and all,,, but no longer is that a problem....yeah im a guitar player,, and ive been jamming with backing trax or karaoke trax off you tube ,,,, i think i can make some killer trax now,,,, with my ScarpOcaster,,, so i got a lot to learn,,, will be exciting,,,,, ok then we'll cyall,,,,,,,,,,,

Hi and welcome to the forum.

For Music Maker, make sure that you are logged into the Store (your email address shows at the upper right), Activated your Premium version, and downloaded and installed everything by clicking on the Download button that should have appeared at the upper right of the screen. Some elements download only and you need to click on each to go through the install process.

Then, and only then, start learning and playing with what you have before spending your credits on more Soundpools, Features, Presets and Instruments. Choose carefully as they cannot be undone. Also, since you also got Samplitude Music Studio (most probably not Samplitude Pro X4) there should be a way to share instruments between them, so find that out first before using the instrument credits in Music Maker Store.

For Samplitude Music Studio, there should be more stuff to download, including instruments. It's probably under Help, Download additional content or something.

If you are using any of the Soundpool loops in your creations and they are for commercial gain, then you will need Commercial licences for the SoundPools you use, this does not apply to the Instruments, with the exception of the default demo melody, as you have to play them with.

Never seen one of those, however I have good idea what you mean 😂😂😂
