Creating a remix on the Magix Music Maker doesn't have to be a difficult task. The interface on the Magix software allows you to split songs into segments, alter tempos and export the recorded audio output. In order to create a remix on the interface, you must first have an external audio recording in a WAV or MP3 format. By using the Remix Agent and Remix Maker function, you will be able to set tempo and mixing parameters to compose the song.
