SmartSound releases Sonicfire Pro 4.5

At NAB2007, SmartSound Software announced the release of Sonicfire Pro 4.5 music scoring software. In addition to a single-user version, a new Network Edition is offered, the latter including several new workflow enhancements for film and video professionals in collaborative environments, giving each licensed operator centralized access to the SmartSound music library.

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 exported as .WAV or .AIFF files are embedded with the project information used to create the track. In addition to being editable with any audio software, smart recall files can be opened to make changes to the length, arrangement and mix of the score before exporting the new, edited audio file.

Another new feature is the Express Track program, which provides a fast interface to find customized music. New to 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.

In conjunction with the product release, SmartSound announced an upgrade program for current Sonicfire owners.
