Northridge, CA (April 23, 2007)–SmartSound Software, Inc. has released Sonicfire Pro 4.5, the latest version of its music scoring software. Available as a free upgrade for current users of Sonicfire Pro 4, this new version includes several workflow enhancements for film and video professionals.
A major new feature in Sonicfire Pro 4.5 is Smart Recall, which brings new customization options to music tracks exported as standard audio file formats. Sonicfire Pro music scores which have been exported as .WAV or .AIFF files are now embedded with the project information used to create the track. In addition to being editable with any audio software, Smart Recall files have the added benefit of being opened in Sonicfire Pro 4.5 to make changes to the length, arrangement and mix of the score before exporting the new, edited audio file.
“Smart Recall gives Sonicfire Pro 4.5 customers a clear advantage over using any other music solution,” said Kevin Klingler, president and CEO of SmartSound Software, Inc. “Sonicfire Pro 4.5 now makes it easy for editors to access powerful customization features such as the award-winning Mood Mapping and immediately make changes to their score as their product evolves. This ability to update their score instantly is not available from any other source.”
SmartSound has also announced the release of Sonicfire Pro 4.5 for Networks. For just $299 per seat, every editor can enjoy the benefits of SmartSound at their workstation while the entire SmartSound music library is centrally located on a network drive.
Also new is BackStage, a new web site that gives registered users of Sonicfire Pro 4 access to unmatched workflow innovations and several new options for acquiring unique musical content. The new Automatic Cue Sheet service in BackStage virtually eliminates the tedious and time-consuming task of creating accurate cue sheets from Edit Decision Lists (EDLs). Cue sheets are generated from user-imported EDLs, which automatically include the cue name, length, composer and licensing information for any SmartSound track along with a growing database of more than 160,000 music cues from other libraries.
