Sony Releases American Idol Versions of Music Creation Software

Sony Media Software

, a provider of music creation programs for the PC, has signed an agreement with FremantleMedia Licensing Worldwide, Americas to develop American Idol Jam Trax and American Idol Extreme Music Creator software, two new applications that let users experience the thrill of making music.

American Idol Jam Trax software comes with over 600 music loops and samples and is an entry-level software application for those who want to get started creating their own music. Users can record vocals, change tempo and key and even email songs to others right from within the software.

American Idol Extreme Music Creator software is a more powerful application that lets users experience what it’s like to produce songs much in the same way their favorite producers do – right on their home computer. Users can record their vocals, remix their own favorite songs, burn them to CD to share with others – or even publish to the web. The software includes hundreds of royalty-free music loops and samples in multiple genres and also comes with a free Randy Jackson’s Producer’s Pack bonus disc providing over 250 additional pop music loops and samples.

American Idol Jam Trax and American Idol Extreme Music Creator, which includes the bonus Randy Jackson’s Producer’s Pack, will be available at major retail stores nationwide in October 2006 for the suggested retail prices of $19.95 and $49.95 respectively. Look for future editions of the Randy Jackson’s Producer’s Packs, add-on loops and music samples for American Idol Extreme Music Creator software, to hit the shelves before the holidays for the suggested retail price of $24.95.
