SmartSound Software, a leading provider of customizable music for film and video professionals, has released the 50th library from its Strata Series of Multi-Layer Music since the product line's inception in April 2006. The collection offers music from leading film and TV composers and popular musicians. SmartSound celebrated the milestone 50th release with specials on the entire Strata Series collection at DV Expo 2007, which was held December 5-6 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Many of the tracks have been created by top composers using the same exacting standards used in major film and TV productions. SmartSound's customization features allow the length, arrangement or instrument mix of any Strata Series music track to be controlled through SmartSound's Sonicfire Pro 4 software and its innovative Mood Mapping feature.
To facilitate the growth of its library, SmartSound hired Andy Muson to serve as music director and add new composers to SmartSound's roster. Muson has worked on hundreds of films and recordings as a studio musician, composer, producer and music supervisor. His credits include time as musical director for Bette Midler and Lily Tomlin; session and touring work with James Taylor, the Manhattan Transfer, Patti LaBelle and Yoko Ono; and work on film and television productions such as Grease II, Heaven Can Wait, The Blues Brothers, 48 Hrs. and Weird Science.
Strata Series music from SmartSound starts at $99.95 per library, or $19.95 for a single-track download through the Sonicfire Pro 4 software.
