SonicFire Pro 5
Express Track Edition IncludedAll of the features of Sonicfire Pro 5 Express Track Edition are included in the Scoring Edition. This software elevates music searching to a whole new level. In addition to some of the most cutting edge searching techniques, like Sensory Searching, Express Track Edition gives you the ability to customize music like no other library. Once you find the perfect track, you can select any exact length, choose from several musical arrangements and adjust individual instrument layers before putting the music directly into your video or audio project.
Scoring Edition features a familiar multitrack timeline interface that includes unique SmartSound features that add new levels of creative control. A video window is also available for you to synchronize the music precisely to your video sequence.
Multitrack Timeline with Video
Make SmartSound’s Multi-Layer Music adapt to the changing moods of your production. Mood Mapping makes it easy for you to control up to 9 different instrument layers from a single track on the timeline.
Set Mood keyframes to change the instrument mix at precise points on the timeline
What’s your Mood?
Set the Mood (or instrument mix) for any area on the timeline. Select a preset Mood Mix from the dropdown list or adjust the sliders to get the perfect custom mix.
Control the transition between moods with this slider. Make a subtle transition by setting it longer or set it to zero to make an immediate transition that emphasizes a change in your video.
If you want to change the location of a Mood keyframe, just click and drag it to a new point on the timeline.
SmartSound has been relentless in providing solutions to overcome the limitations of traditional library music by empowering a new level of creativity through technological innovation. Sonicfire Pro 5’s Timing Control features are the biggest new innovation in customizing library music. Now you can adjust when the section changes occur in a track or move a perfect musical beat to match an event in your video. Simply select the “Timing Control” option and these new controls are at your fingertips.
When working with music and picture, you will inevitably need to emphasize an event or transition with a distinct musical change. With Sonicfire Pro 5’s new beat alignment capability, you can now grab a beat and move it to align perfectly with the events in your picture.
With “Snap to Beat” enabled, your new change will be in rhythm and the total lengh of the track will be automatically preserved.
If a song starts out slow and develops too quickly for your video, you can now simply change the music sections to allow more time before the song develops into its full sections.
You can easily control the arrangement of the song to conform to the dynamic changes in your story.
Insert Hit Files
When an event on screen calls for a musical hit or sound effect, the new “Insert Hit File” feature will come in handy. Sonicfire Pro 5 Scoring Edition comes with a collection of cymbal swells and crashs, whooshs, and dozens of other sounds that are ideal for highlighting a specific event in your scene.
Since hit files have their peak sound at different times, Sonicfire Pro 5 automatically adjusts each hit file so that its peak is exactly where you want it.
Cycle Through Hits
A keyboard shortcut allows you to quickly cycle through all of the available hit files. It will automatically play 2 second before and after your hit file so you can quickly hear which one works best.
