Smart Recall brings amazing customization of a music track’s length, arrangement and instrument mix to standard audio formats; new Network Edition targets post-production teams Sonicfire Pro SmartSound Software, Inc., the leading provider of music and scoring technology for film and video professionals, today announced the release of Sonicfire Pro 4.5, the latest version of its award-winning music scoring software. It is available in two versions: a standalone version for single-user installations and a network version that includes several breakthrough workflow enhancements for film and video professionals and can be seen at SmartSound’s booth at NAB 2007 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (#SL3710). A major new feature available to all Sonicfire Pro 4.5 users is Smart Recall, which brings new customization options to music tracks exported as standard audio file formats. Sonicfire Pro music scores which have been exported as .WAV or .AIFF files are now embedded with the project information used to create the track. In addition to being editable with any audio software, Smart Recall files have the added benefit of being opened in Sonicfire Pro 4.5 to make changes to the length, arrangement and mix of the score before exporting the new, edited audio file. “Smart Recall gives Sonicfire Pro 4.5 customers a clear advantage over using any other music solution,† said Kevin Klingler, president and CEO of SmartSound Software, Inc. “Sonicfire Pro 4.5 now makes it easy for editors to access powerful customization features such as the award-winning Mood Mapping ® and immediately make changes to their score as their production evolves. This ability to update their score instantly is not available from any other source.† SmartSound has also announced the release of Sonicfire Pro 4.5 Network Edition. This new edition boasts features which improve the workflow in a collaborative environment. For just $299 per seat, every editor can enjoy the benefits of SmartSound at their workstation while the entire SmartSound music library is centrally located on a network drive. Having the searching and customization tools on each editor’s desktop allows the editor to find and fit the perfect track without having to leave their desktop or disrupt their workflow. Additional features include the new Express Trackâ„ ¢ program, which provides the fastest interface possible to find customized music. Express Track is perfect for editors who want the simplicity of their current music searching tools and the customization power of SmartSound with no learning curve. Another aspect of the Network Edition is an option to prefix every music track with a unique ID number that accelerates the creation of music cue sheets and aids in project file management for broadcast content producers. “We are thankful to our high-end customers and advisors for helping us assemble a feature set that addresses the needs of professional production companies better than any product on the market,† said Klingler. “Adding this level of capability makes Sonicfire Pro 4.5 an ideal choice for big and small production companies alike.† Existing owners of Smartsound Sonicfire Pro 4 can receive Sonicfire Pro 4.5 Standard Edition as a free upgrade or receive a limited-time discount price of $49.50 per seat to upgrade to the Network Edition. This discounted price is limited to two seats. Owners of other SmartSound products may also qualify for discounts when upgrading to Sonicfire Pro 4.5. Click here for more on Sonic Fire Pro
