Reprinted from a SmartSound press release:
SmartSound Software, Inc., the leading provider of soundtrack creation technology for visual content creators, today announced a reduction in the price of CDs from its library of royalty-free audio content, making it more affordable for users to add new CDs to their existing collection of SmartSound music.
The price of Professional CDs has been reduced from $129 to $99.95, and the price of Multimedia CDs has been reduced from $69 to $49.95. Each CD contains approximately 15-20 pieces of original, royalty-free music. When used with SmartSound products such as Sonicfire Pro 3.0 and Movie Maestro, the user can create professional-quality soundtracks that add drama and punch to any visual media project.
People who work with visual media need access to a wide variety of audio selections when creating soundtracks. This is true for both professionals and enthusiasts who need access to top-quality music that will fit a wide variety of projects and solutions that are affordable and fast.
“SmartSound’s music and audio CDs are critical to the success of my business, and the new pricing makes it possible to add many more choices when I’m working on a project,” said Mike Braun, owner of Buffalo Audio, a Denver, CO company that creates custom audio for professional Web sites. “My production studio faces daily schedules that are only possible to meet using SmartSound. Standard sound libraries are too expensive and aren’t flexible enough to edit. Looping software from other companies takes too long to develop a soundtrack. SmartSound is fast, affordable, easy to use, and delivers in quality.”
SmartSound audio CDs are available for use with Movie Maestro and the new Sonicfire Pro 3.0, launched last month. Among the new features of Sonicfire Pro 3.0 is the ability to preview, purchase and download single audio tracks from the SmartSound library – even tracks they don’t own – for immediate use. A 44k track can be purchased for $19.95, making a great option for users under a tight deadline or needing a special piece for a project.
“We know that our users require a broad range of music and sound in order to get the most out of their soundtracks,” said Kevin Klingler, president and CEO of SmartSound Software, Inc. “SmartSound has always been on the leading edge of the media creation industry, and the new pricing structure allows a greater number of people to benefit from SmartSound’s unique capabilities.”
