Sonicfire Pro plug-in provides seamless integration with Final Cut Pro for music soundtrack creation; See it for the first time at NAB 2009
With the release of SmartSound’s new Final Cut Pro plug-in, editors will be able to set markers or in/out points in their video sequence and use the Sonicfire Pro 5 “Send To” button to automatically deliver custom-fit music tracks within any of their markers. Once a SmartSound music track is in Final Cut Pro, the “Open in Editor” command will allow full roundtrip editing of the track. Editors can use Sonicfire Pro 5 to resize the music or use Mood Mapping and Timing Control features to adjust the timing of the music to their markers and even change individual instrument levels before sending the changes back to Final Cut Pro for immediate review, all with a few clicks of the mouse.
Included for no extra charge with every Final Cut Pro plug-in purchase is an exclusive music album, composed and produced specifically for the creative and innovative marketplace of Final Cut users. Unlike traditional library music, “A New Era” (a $99.95 value) features a diverse collection of customizable music from top indie musicians and soundtrack composers. Tim Fagan, who has collaborated with John Mayer and toured with Colbie Caillat, explained the significance, “SmartSound has opened the door for independent artists like myself to get music licensed directly to their huge base of creative professionals.” With the release of “A New Era,” SmartSound once again continues to build on its reputation of providing innovative music solutions for visual creators.
Beginning April 20th, 2009, SmartSound’s Final Cut Pro plug-in can be purchased for $249 at www.smartsound.com. Current customers may upgrade for as low as $49.95. For a limited time, each purchase will include SmartSound’s exclusive music album, “A New Era” ($99.95 value) free of charge. The plug-in works with Apple Final Cut Pro 6.0.2 or later and SmartSound Sonicfire Pro 5.1 or later. For more information visit: http://www.smartsound.com/finalcutpro. SmartSound will be providing live demonstrations of the Final Cut Pro plug-in at the NAB Show in Las Vegas from April 20th to 23rd in booth SL7613.
