SmartSound Software Inc. has unveiled a new product aimed specifically at corporate A/V departments that would benefit from having their own royalty-free music libraries. SmartSound’s “Corporate Soundtrack Solution” bundles together two copies of the company’s Sonicfire Pro software and more.
Sonicfire Pro enables users to stitch together their own custom soundtracks for video projects, not unlike Apple’s own Soundtrack software — except Sonicfire Pro works with fully orchestrated cuts, not loops. The software lets you preview your soundtracks in realtime with your video, mixes and matches search criteria based on your needs, and much more. The software works in conjunction with music and sound effects made available through SmartSound’s library.
For US$4,995, the Corporate Soundtrack Solution bundles together two copies of Sonicfire Pro, and the entire library of 59 SmartSound music and sound effects CDs fro each copy. A one-year membership to SmartSound’s “SmartClub” is also included, which grants users access to any additional CDs released within 12 months of purchase. All told, it’s a $3,000 savings over what the individual components would cost, according to the company.
For users on a tighter budget, SmartSound is offering “The Essential Corporate Soundtrack Solution,” which includes one copy of Sonicfire Pro and nine CDs from the SmartSound library that are most appropriate for corporate settings. That package also provides five free downloads of any single tracks from the SmartSound library. It’s priced at $795, a 30 percent savings.
The software works on Mac OS X v10.1 or higher and Mac OS 9.1 or higher.
