Chicago (November 22, 2006)–Synk Audio has announced version 1.6 of its Musicbed DV music soundtrack generation software with Mac Universal Binary support, new music generation features, new surround music features and more than double the amount of royalty-free music content.
According to Synk Audio, Musicbed DV is an easy-to-use Mac program for generating custom music soundtracks that match the mood and timing of video and audio projects. Users are offered a unique set of versatile controls for adjusting musical intensity, complexity, dynamics and more, all in real-time. Control curves may be used to add musical builds and punctuation that underscore and accent the emotional movement of projects. Music soundtracks of any duration may be generated without compromise and exported with a wide variety of options, including stereo and surround music. Designed for video and audio creators who may not have the time to create professional music soundtracks from scratch, Musicbed DV works for video and film projects, Podcasts, DVDs, or any project that calls for a music soundtrack.
Musicbed DV 1.6 is now bundled with new music packages in many genres and genre-mashups, more than doubling the available music content. The Musicbed DV Bundle includes the Seasons 1 and 2 customizable stock music libraries, adding thousands of music theme variations and an unlimited number of time-based variations using Musicbed DV’s unique music style and texture control curves. Combined with the new Music Package Swap feature, which allows the mood, genre and instrumentation of music in the timeline to be changed independent of timing and control curves, the creative possibilities for music soundtrack creation are vast.
This new version also contains a number of music generation enhancements, including Keyframe Snapshots for taking snapshots of music style and texture customizations, making it even easier to create and manage musical builds and punctuation. Keyframe Generation creates keyframes with varying values that hit markers or periodic time locations, which can be used for quickly generating musical textures that evolve over time. Music Clip Overlay/Overwrite is a new preference that lets the user specify whether adding music to the timeline overlays or overwrites existing music. Music in the timeline may freely overlap, allowing for seamless transitions between different music themes.
Musicbed DV 1.6 also contains new surround mix presets for various surround music usage scenarios. Narrative projects may benefit from the theatrically oriented surround mix preset while entertainment projects may be enhanced by the preset for an immersive surround music presentation. Music packages contain hundreds of non-linear audio tracks under-the-hood, all of which are mixed according to the desired preset for a true surround music mix.
Musicbed DV is a standalone Mac application with extensive import and export options for easy integration with Apple iMovie and GarageBand all the way up to Final Cut Studio and Logic.
The Musicbed DV plus Seasons 1 and 2 Bundle is available now at an introductory price of $249.
