1.0 out of 5 stars ******DO NOT BUY******* - YOU DONT OWN THE MUSIC YOU MAKE WITH THIS SOFTWARE, 27 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MAGIX Music Maker 2013 Premium (Anniversary Special inkl. Music Studio) (DVD-ROM)
The email response I got from MAGIX to confirm that I wasted my money!!!!!

Thank you for your message.

Starting in version 17 of the MAGIX Soundpool DVD collections and audio content bundled with the Music Maker product line, the use of the provided audio content is limited to private and non-commcerical use. The public presentation of the songs is still possible as long as it's non-commercial (e.g. YouTube without using any monetisation on your channel). However, for commercial productions you will need to obtain a suitable license for the content in question via Catooh ([...]). Commercial licenses are available for the entire soundpool disc (or Music Maker content collection), individual soundpools (i.e. one single style/volume) and soundpacks (smaller parts of a soundpool) on Catooh, giving you different options to meet your individual requirements.

Thanks for that information. I guess THAT's why it is so cheap then!

That, and the fact that the social sharing tools gets the MAGIX name out there...

This is a very good point.
For most people the private/usage non commercial license will surfice, but if you are looking to do more than muck about or just demo songs then you would need to buy the correct license.... even then there are limits I believe.

If you make your OWN tracks (ie PLAY keyboards or guitar yourself) then u do own them. It's only the loops that are MAGIX. U could buy royalty free loops and make a track.
