The Promusic production music library has recently endorsed mSoft’s MusicCue system as the online music-delivery system they recommend to customers. Offering more than 2,000 CDs, Promusic is one of the country’s largest independent production-music sources, including its own Abaco library and many popular European libraries for licensed use in the United States.
“The success of mSoft with our customers and the ease of use of the system have made MusicCue an obvious choice for us,” said Alain Leroux, president of Promusic. “After the demonstration we had at this year’s NAB show, we were convinced.”
MusicCue was created to solve the growing problem of manageability issues for production music library users. mSoft offers the system pre-loaded with a facility’s libraries, and currently has over 12 TB of music libraries available. “When you offer thousands of CDs to a facility like Promusic does, the subject of a management solution inevitably comes up,” said Leroux. “We have been searching for a system that really works for our clients, and felt that mSoft’s MusicCue was what we had been waiting for.”
The new MusicCue system can use the same server and SQL database engine that mSoft’s ServerSound sound effects system uses, and can be used as a stand-alone product or as an add-on. Music can be searched for by any combination of category/sub-category, mood words, style, instruments, composer, library, CD number and title. Once a piece of music is found, the user can hear other tracks that are cross-referenced to it.
Music can be saved as “projects,” which allow the producer to add remarks about how the track should be used, and even allows for a “favorites” project to save favorite tracks for future use. MusicCue will also allow users to automatically create cue sheets documenting the music used in a project. Each track can by classified by type of use and length, with the composer, publishing company and licensing society listed as well.
