Las Vegas, NV (April 27, 2005)–SmartSound Software, Inc. and Megatrax announced a partnership to bring a new music library to the high-end film and video market at NAB2005. “The Scene” will launch in June, and combines Megatrax’s high-quality needle-drop music library with SmartSound’s innovative technology.
“The Scene” goes beyond the traditional needle-drop library method of delivering music in 15-, 30-, 60- or 90-second arrangements. It features Megatrax music encoded with patented SmartSound technology, which allows each track to be instantly edited into a piece with a complete musical beginning and ending at custom lengths from three seconds to more than 30 minutes. SmartSound also provides instant access to audition several possible musical arrangements for each track before saving the desired arrangement to an audio file that can be used in any application. With this time-tested capability, video and music editors can deliver professional results in less time and turn around music edits faster than ever.
Megatrax’s music library has been used in numerous major film and television productions, including extensive use by NBC Productions for source cues and background music for programming and promotional spots. “The Scene” will initially feature 10 CDs of needle-drop music appropriate for film, TV and corporate A/V productions, with additional titles planned for future release.
“The Scene” marks the first time that needle-drop music has been available for use with SmartSound technology. This will allow SmartSound to continue to expand its reach in the high-end film, video and broadcasting market. Millions already use SmartSound’s technology through bundles and integration with popular video editing products from companies such as Avid, Adobe, Pinnacle, Ulead and Cyberlink, as well as through standalone software products such as SmartSound’s Sonicfire Pro.
