Galway, Ireland (September 11, 2008)–Abaltat has announced the release of Muse 2.0, which reportedly enables anyone, regardless of musical ability, to compose royalty-free, multi-part soundtracks timed and aligned to the users’ edited video.
The new release of the flagship audio solution from Abaltat, a developer of audio workflow solutions for postproduction and broadcast markets, delivers a brand new composition and analysis engine, streamlined user interface, expanded soundtrack creation capabilities and pre-set audio tracks.
“The new Muse composition engine is incredibly dynamic and powerful,” said Mark Altekruse, sales and marketing director, Abaltat. “Users can create a much wider range of soundtracks with greater control over creative elements. They can also pop in a pre-set track and fly through their project. We have made Muse 2.0 so much more flexible and simpler to use. Video editors with little to no experience with soundtrack creation will be able to bring Muse immediately into their video workflow and create, royalty free soundtracks without having to spend a serious amount of time learning the controls. For facilities and projects that house both video and audio post, the Muse integration with other professional soundtrack tools enhances the overall workflow. Video editors can get a jump start on the track while audio pros finesse the output Muse file in their DAW for finishing.”
The company has also incorporated the version 2.0 enhancements into Abaltat Muse Free–a free soundtrack creation application based on the Muse composition engine. Abaltat Muse Free offers users the same interface with a limited range of controls and band styles for royalty-free soundtrack creation.
