Is this the only documentation available? Where can I find some more detailed explanations about how to use the features of Music Maker?

I've only recently started using Magix Music Maker and am quite impressed, the only failing I can see is this forum i.e. Workshop, it seems as if it is the Cindlerella of the organisation and is somewhat neglected, pity because it creates a completely wrong impression.

Dont feel bad... I purchased it and have the same problem. Seems like this software is nothing more than a shell.  It may be able to work, but now I can't figure how to get any kind of sound into or out of it.  The instructions are pathetic.  It should have come with at least a demo and a few sound loops installed.  That might have given me a good impression, or at least a little more patience!

Can I give a negative star rating?

I purchased this program and am disappointed.  I downloaded the soundpackets, managed to get them imported and was disappointed in the selection of loops.  Many of the default "styles" on contain 4 or 5 individual loops.  I am guessing that they want you to purchase teh additional sound packets, but when I watched "Benjamin" it looked like there was plenty of selection.   Frankly, the selection sucks.

Wow, my first imperssion is absolutely amazing!! This is so handy and just wonderful tool for making and editing music!!! I have worked with several audio editing tools (Pro Tools included), and I fell in love with Music Maker from the first sight. Music is about creating, not only coping and pasting. Although the latter part works well on Music Maker too. I love the sound of instruments and tuning possibilities. I got MM with Midistart keyboard and recording and editing sound is pure fun. Program is build up so logical. Thank you!

Hello, I just bought the Magix music maker MX but I can't find the function that I am looking for. For example, the guitar chords, I don't know if I am on chord C or G or F or etc. Also I can't find where to go if I want to change the chord C to C7 or C minor for example. Can anybody show us here how to find these functions? because the manual that comes with it has no step by step method. This type of program need a step by step tutorial video since there are a lot of functions that it will take years to learn if no body will teach. Thank you.

I purchased this program along with the video editing software through Sweetwater. I have not used the video editor yet, but have been using Music Maker. It started out fine and now it's a complete nightmare. After purchasing multiple soundpool files I'm now unable to record or save any music, despite paying for the commercial licensing for all the soundpools. I'm very disappointed. I should have known better to buy such an inferior product. If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this issue, please contact me at dtworrell at I would certainly appreciate it since i'm not getting any response from music maker.

i am disappointed. I installed the basic / not the free version. Dont understand why no sound. I have googled/ youtube for answer and even been seaching Magix website for an answer with no luck. Nothing should be this hard to get an answer for.. If I pay for something I should be able to use it . and have some support. It is truly not for beginners ..
