MAGIX Music Maker 16 is a music producing and publishing software application. With a library of sound loops from different genres of music to choose from, you can create your own music within minutes. The instruments available to you include guitars, bass guitars, keyboards, drums and brass. Using loops that are preloaded, you can create drum patterns, guitar riffs, and bass lines. The program also allows you to export the music you create as an MP3 file so you can burn it on a CD.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open MAGIX Music Maker 16 on your laptop or PC. Once the program opens, click on the icon just under the MAGIX logo in the top right corner. When you hover your mouse over the icon, it should read "Easy Mode On."

  2. 2

    Navigate to the "Soundpools" window. MAGIX Music Maker 16 comes with preloaded loops. The different styles are listed in the window under "Soundpools."

  3. 3

    Scroll through the list and choose a style. Most styles come with bass loops. For example, "'60s Soul Vol. 1" contains eight different bass lines from which to choose. Click the style of music you want for your bass line.

  4. 4

    Click on the "Bass" icon. Directly to the right of the "Styles" window is a window titled "Instruments." The list is in alphabetical order, so "Bass" is on top of the list.

  5. 5

    Choose the bass line from the list. Once you have clicked the "Bass" icon, the window directly to the right of the "Instruments" panel will populate with the bass lines available for the style of music you chose. Click each file to listen to a sample of the bass line.

  6. 6

    Double-click the bass line you want to use. The bass line will appear in the main work station window as a .wav file. You can click on the edge of the file and drag it to the right to extend the length of time the bass line plays.

  7. 7

    Press the play button at the bottom of the work station to listen to the bass line. Add other bass lines to the work station to create more unique bass lines.
