NORTHRIDGE, Calif.--SmartSound Software, Inc., the leading provider of innovative music scoring technology for film and video professionals, today announced that the Motion Picture Editors Guild of America will host a free seminar for its members on the award-winning SmartSound Sonicfire Pro 4 music scoring solution on Thursday, Nov. 9 at 7:30 p.m. The Motion Picture Editors Guild is located at 7715 Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood.
The training session is designed to give editors an opportunity to learn about Mood Mapping, SmartSound‘s latest innovation in music library technology and the key new feature in Sonicfire Pro 4. This session is ideal for professional editors who are actively using traditional library music or those that have dismissed library music because of its lack of flexibility. This session will teach them how SmartSound can make library music unique to each production.
With SmartSound‘s patented technology, over 1,600 tracks of SmartSound music can be cut precisely to any length without affecting pitch or tempo. When using Mood Mapping with SmartSound‘s new Multi-Layer Music, editors now have the ability to easily adjust the individual instrument layers. Whether dynamically adjusting the music mix along the timeline to match the mood of the production or simply removing unwanted instruments, SmartSound offers video and audio editors more control than any other music library solution.
“SmartSound is driving the future of production library music. Whether an editor is working with temp scores or is responsible for scoring an entire project, Sonicfire Pro 4 brings unprecedented capabilities,” said Brian Dickman, Vice President of Marketing for SmartSound. “Our combination of professionally composed and recorded music tracks, one-time license fees and integration with the editing workflow makes SmartSound a one-of-a-kind solution ideal for any professional environment.”
Sonicfire Pro 4 is compatible with any video editing platform running on Mac and Windows systems, and delivers music at 48 kHz-quality for a one-time fee for unlimited use. SmartSound also offers licensing models that make it simple and economical to share music across multiple seats in a network environment regardless of the editing systems being used. Sonicfire Pro 4 is now bundled with Avid Media Composer and Avid Xpress Pro packages. In addition, the entire SmartSound solution is now pre-installed on Avid and Final Cut Pro rental packages from Wexler Video in Burbank.
