SmartSound Software Inc., a provider of soundtrack creation technology for visual content creators, and Megatrax, a Hollywood-based production music library for film, television, advertising and multimedia, have announced a partnership to bring a new music library to the high-end film and video market. “The Scene” will launch in June, and combines Megatrax’s needle-drop music library with SmartSound technology.
The Scene features Megatrax music encoded with patented SmartSound technology, which allows each track to be instantly edited into a piece with a complete musical beginning and ending at custom lengths from three seconds to more than 30 minutes. SmartSound also provides instant access to audition several possible musical arrangements for each track before saving the desired arrangement to an audio file that can be used in any application.
Megatrax’s music library has been used in numerous major film and television productions, including extensive use by NBC Productions for source cues and background music for programming and promotional spots. The Scene will initially feature 10 CDs of needle-drop music appropriate for film, TV and corporate A/V productions, with additional titles planned for future release. Among the CDs included with the June launch are three volumes of Club Life, from dance music producer Byron Brizuela; two volumes of Global Hip-Hop, produced by Karl Lundeberg; Three volumes of Jazz Combo Styles featuring all live ensembles; one volume each of Acoustic Pop/Rock and Crisis/Emergency.
The Scene marks the first time that needle-drop music has been available for use with SmartSound technology. This will allow SmartSound to continue to expand its reach in the high-end film, video and broadcasting market. Visit www.smartsound.com or www.megatrax.com for more information.
