SmartSound Announces New Indie Film Music Pack and SmartSound Indie Film Studio Contest
SmartSound has announced the Indie Film Music Pack, which gives independent filmmakers the creative flexibility and control to get a powerful, professional-quality music score for a small cost. Priced at just $499, it includes the SmartSound Sonicfire Pro software and a choice of any 25 royalty-free tracks from SmartSound's library of more than 1,200 cuts. Sonicfire Pro helps filmmakers tailor the tracks to fit the exact length and mood needed to score a scene. And because the tracks are royalty-free, the rights are cleared from festival screenings to theatrical or DVD releases. The Indie Film Music Pack also includes a free copy of the Sonicfire Pro Training CD. This includes 90 minutes of step-by-step instruction on creating soundtracks with Sonicfire Pro, along with four bonus music tracks.
To promote the new Indie Film Music Pack, SmartSound is combining with Avid and Alienware to give one filmmaker the SmartSound Indie Film Studio. This package includes products ordinarily priced at more than $11,000, including the following:
