Los Angeles, CA (August 18, 2020)—Audio Design Desk has launched a new integration that allows users to pull video assets and frame-accurate comments directly from Frame.io into Audio Design Desk for creating sound and music for video and upload their work to Frame.io for collaborative review and feedback without leaving the timeline.
Along with the new integration, the company is releasing new updates in v1.3 of the platform, dubbed Audio Design Desk Collaborate, which includes an optimized codebase said to increase performance by up to 70%, a modernized AI-assisted importer and perpetual licensing.
The integration with the Frame.io cloud-based video collaboration platform reportedly enables a roundtrip workflow between the two apps. Video assets and frame-accurate comments may be imported directly from Frame.io into add.app to quickly add sound effects, audio design and music for video. Users can pull from add.app’s library of 2,500 free sounds (or 25,000 for paying customers) or import their own sounds to build immersive soundscapes for their videos using add.app’s AI-assisted creative tools.
The sound-designed video may then be exported and uploaded to Frame.io for review, then back into add.app, with notes, when the review is complete. Using Frame.io’s Version Stacks, add.app artists can provide options for their clients so they can compare, side-by-side, different sound design or music cues options. One effect can be swapped out for another, intensity can be pushed up or down, or an entire selection of sounds can be changed from one genre to another with a single click, without ever losing sync.
The software now offers customers the option to purchase a software license outright, otherwise known as perpetual licensing. Under this model, customers pay one price upfront, and will have the option to upgrade at a significantly discounted price for full point upgrades. Perpetual add.app licenses are available for $399.
