The software features full multitrack editing and mixing, more than 50 effect plug-ins from Apple’s Logic Pro 7 software, and more than 1,000 sound effects, along with waveform editing functions and other capabilities. Coming in May for US$299, Soundtrack Pro is also being included as part of Apple’s Final Cut Studio — a $1,299 package that includes Final Cut Pro 5, Motion 2 and DVD Studio Pro. More details will be posted shortly.
