Frequently Asked Questions about the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio

Why do I need the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio?
PowerPoint provides no real means of controlling presentation music, audio or sound effects within your presentations. The 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio is an application that installs directly into PowerPoint to provide you a host of new tools, features and functions which you access inside PowerPoint just as you would any other PowerPoint functionality.

However, unlike existing PowerPoint functionality, the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio provides you with new, unique and powerful tools that allow you to create playlists and add individual or multiple music tracks to your PowerPoint presentation slides. With the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio you can fade music in, fade music out, or crossfade between music tracks for smooth transitions with easy to use control sliders. For the first time you also gain precise control of the volume of any presentation music track to allow you to play any and every music track at the exact sound level or levels you want. You can seamlessly loop individual music tracks with no irritating delays or pauses, or loop entire playlists. Shuffle tracks within playlists for dynamism or pan music from left to right or right to left to add another dimension to your presentation music.

The 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio also provides you with powerful tools that allow you to synchronize your slide sound effects to slide transitions or custom animations. While the powerful 123PPT Narrator function lets you record your voice over vocals and narrate your PowerPoint presentations in real-time inside PowerPoint.

The 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio is the definitive audio and sound suite for PowerPoint presenters who not only want to add music and sound effects to their PowerPoint presentations but want to control them.
Will the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio run on my computer?
The 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio is designed to run on PC computers, laptops and workstations running Windows XP (Service Pack 3), Windows Vista or the Windows 7 operating system.

In addition to running the Windows operating system, the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio requires PowerPoint 2000, PowerPoint 2002, PowerPoint 2003, PowerPoint 2007 or PowerPoint 2010 to be installed in order to access and operate the application.
Will the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio run on my Apple Macintosh computer?
The 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio is not available for the Apple Macintosh platform or Mac OS X operating systems. In order to run the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio on an Apple Macintosh, iMac, MacBook, MacBook Air, or Mac Pro machine, a PC emulator should be run on your Machintosh machine.

I have installed the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio Trial Edition but cannot find the application when I start Poweroint. Why?
If you have downloaded and installed the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio you must restart your computer at the end of the installation prompt to allow all setup files to be completed and drivers to be loaded.

On restarting your machine and opening PowerPoint you are able to gain access to the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio. Dependent upon your installed version of PowerPoint, the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio will appear to you as illustrated in our Screenshots section.

If you are unable to see the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio in the ribbon section (PowerPoint 2007, PowerPoint 2010), or see the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio Toolbar (PowerPoint 2000, PowerPoint 2002, PowerPoint 2003) then your installation may not be correctly setup and Windows Registry Settings need to be updated. To correct your Windows Registry Settings simply close PowerPoint and launch the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Troubleshooter which can be located at:

Windows Start > All Programs > 123PPT > 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio > Troubleshooter

Running the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Troubleshooter will attempt to diagnose, repair and correct any errors in your installation or Windows Registry Settings and allow you to access and run your application correctly.
When I assign a playlist, sound effect or narration recording tn a slide, Slide Transition of Custom Animation it does not play. Why is that?
When you use either the Insert Wizard, Edit Slide Music,
  • Edit Slide SoundFX or 123PPT Music & SoundFX Narrator
  • functions to add and insert a playlists, music, sound effects or voiceover narrations onto your PowerPoint slides, the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio creates a snapshot of where your audio is added and applied. Your audio does not play immediately to allow you to continue to work on your slides and presentation content in Normal View.

    If when adding your playlists, music, sound effects and narration to your presentation in Normal View your audio was continually playing, your audio would become distracting and make writing and adding slide content unnecessarily difficult. For these reasons, your presentation audio only plays when you play your presentation and not while you are authoring your presentation and presentation content.
    How can I play my presentation with my playlists, sound effects and voiceover narrations?
    As you know PowerPoint does not allow you to create or add playlists, synchronize sound effects, play multiple levels of sound, set auido effects such as fade in and fade out or record vocals and voiceovers. For these reasons we created the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio.

    When you install the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio another module called 123PPT Play & Share is also installed. 123PPT Play & Share provides you with play back options as well as distribution options such as burn to CD-Rom, DVD and Blu-ray discs. When playing back your presentation with enhanced audio on the same machine where you have installed the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio you may use either of the 2 play back options found in the 123PPT Play & Share module to Play From Beginning, or to Play Your Presentation From Current Slide.
    Why does my playlists, music, sound effects or narrations not play when I enter Slide Show View or press the (F5) key?
    PowerPoint alone does not allow you to create playlists, assign audio effects such as fade in and fade out, pan or crossfade, allow you to synchronize sound effects or record voiceovers and vocals for use as narration in PowerPoint presentations. For these reasons we created the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio. Selecting PowerPoint's built-in play back function, Slide Show View, or pressing F5 only allows PowerPoint to play your presentation as PowerPoint can and is able to display presentations. With limited audio and sound.

    To play your PowerPoint presentation with playlists, audio effects settings, sound effects and narration you should use either of the 2 play back options provided in the 123PPT Play & Share module to Play From Beginning, or to Play Your Presentation From Current Slide.

    If you wish to play your PowerPoint presentations with enhanced audio on other computers where you do not have the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio installed you can do so by installing the free 123PPT Presentations Player which is a free standalone player that allows you to play any PowerPoint presentation with playlists, narration and enahnced audio settings on any PC computer without need to license or purchase additional licenses of the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio.
    Why can I not import my own MP3's, music files and sound effects in the Trial Edition?
    The Free 14-day Trial Edition of the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio allows you to experience the power and abilities of using and controlling presentation music, audio and sound effects in your PowerPoint presentations.

    Bundled with five (5) free professional music tracks and five (5) free professional sound effects from 123PPT, the free Trial Edition of the 123PPT Music & SoundFX Studio allows you to create new, or update and transform existing PowerPoint presentations into audience engaging experiences with a dimension of sound that was previously impossible.
