Sonicfire® Pro 6 offers the only music search engine to combine sophisticated technology that gives you meaningful, comparative search choices with patented, industry leading technology to customize almost any aspect of the music to meet the creative needs of each scene.
Powerful searching features are imperative for a royalty free music library with thousands of tracks and a constant addition of new tracks every month. Sonicfire® Pro 6's Fully Integrated Search was designed to help you pinpoint the perfect music quickly.
New with version 6, we've combined the sources for track selection, where you get your tracks from, with two Keyword drop-down menus, to help you refine your search quickly, all in a contiguous, single panel - that's always available to you.
New with version 6, you can sort the tracks by the type of musical ending you want, longer or shorter depending on what you need for your scene, simply check the "Sort By Ending" check box.
Find music that is close to what you want and then use our Sensory Search menu to select "More Like This" to find all music similar to that track. Further adjustments like "Faster/Slower", "More Intense/Less Intense", etc., can be made to lead your search to the right track.
Tap a tempo on your trackpad or mouse to find all tracks that match that tempo. This allows you to use your video as the basis for the timing you need - and find the tracks that match that timing immediately.
SmartSound pioneered customizable library music and is the only company to provide a music search engine that is also loaded with customization features. Once you find a track with the powerful searching options, you can adjust the final length, arrangement, instrument mix and tempo.
We don't limit you to the basic 15, 30 and 60 second cuts you get from other libraries. Simply type in the exact length you'd like and our Integrated Search engine instantly provides a perfectly edited version of that length with a musical beginning, middle and ending.
Once you've selected a length, Sonicfire® Pro's Integrated Search computes all possible musical arrangements available for that length. Each Variation is simply a different edit of the track automatically created by our patented technology, that fit the exact length you typed in the Duration window. These options are presented in a simple drop-down menu. In most cases there are several creative options for every track at any length.
The list of preset Moods gives you instant access to different instrument mixes that can create a diverse set of sounds from a single track. You can select from preset moods like Drum & Bass, Dialog, Atmosphere, Breakdown, etc. to quickly get a custom sound. The combination of these Mood options with the Variations options create an almost unlimited capacity to quickly tweak the music track for a better fit for your video.
If you want to remove an instrument or fine-tune one of the preset Moods, the Mix panel lets you precisely adjust each instrument layer.
Putting SmartSound Music to work in your productions is a simple process. Once you've found the perfect track and made any customizations, simply export the track as "Audio for Digital Video, 48k" file or "Audio CD file, 44k".
Export the music as a single file or save each instrument layer as a separate file. This gives you the ability to fine tune the music further in your editing software and also enables exciting creative options like a surround sound music mix.
The Open In Bin feature allows you to take the SmartSound track into the Sonicfire® Pro Bin Tab where you have access to, and control over, all of SmartSound's segmented sections we call "Blocks" This gives you even more customization options and flexibility in working with SmartSound music.
Sonicfire® Pro 6 lets you adjust the tempo and pitch of every SmartSound Music track. Simply select a new tempo and adjust the pitch to make a whole new track. The original tempo and the new tempo will now be available for this track and you'll still have full customization control over both versions.
The newly integrated Inspector Window is where you will find all the necessary information on any track highlighted in the Integrated Search track list. Track info such as Composer, Publisher (for cue sheets), Beats Per Minute, Length of Track, Frames Per Beat and Lyrics (if the track has them), are all easily accessible in this window. Want to keep track of your tracks? The User Notes feature allows you to type any kind of notes... like where a certain track might be a good fit or where you’ve already used the track before. These User Notes are searchable in the keyword searching of Sonicfire® Pro 6's Integrated Search.
By integrating the search functionality with the timeline and other technology, finding the perfect track for every need is now right at your fingertips. This also allows you to decide, on a case-by-case basis whether the creative controls in Search suffice for that particular situation or you need to have the deeper creative controls available through the Timeline. Since those controls are also right there, you are free to jump in immediately and give some other creative options a try.
Now, with Integrated Search, you determine the workflow, all the tools will be immediately available when you need them.
