As Smartsound’s cutting edge software has evolved over the years from single to multi-layer to multi-layer with vocals tracks, we have put together special series to indicate which albums carry the various layering possibilities, depending on your needs. Each series features a variety of music genres and types to include the widest selection at each level.

The only differences in the single layer series and the multi-layer are the fact that the instrument variations are not available and the price for single tracks is lower. In every other respect they offer the same flexibility as all Smartsound multi-layer tracks. Album prices are all the same, and the timing and musical arrangement features are available for infinite permutations of your song.

Urban Drama Royalty Free MusicSteve and Christopher Skinner collaborated on Smartsound’s new release, Urban Drama. It’s heavy-duty cool, and sometimes just heavy—like the City is itself.

Put the petal to the metal with Bad Habits, a TV/Film Drama style song that backs up a late-night driving scene, Reality TV or Film Trailers with hard drums, keeping the beat deep under melodic strings and piano.
