Silverado "Preparing for Final Cut Pro X" White Paper Covers Latest Technologies Driving FCP X Innovations

Download Silverado's latest white paper "Preparing for Final Cut Pro X" and learn about the latest technologies that will allow Final Cut Pro X to perform like no other previous editing package. Topics include OpenCL, 64-bit RAM utilization, and Grand Central Dispatch. You'll learn which systems are best suited for Final Cut Pro X as well as the logic behind these recommendations.

“There are some massive improvements to the codebase of Final Cut Pro X” says Torrey Loomis, president and CEO of Silverado Systems, Inc. “The GPU inside your computer is a supercomputer in itself, but you haven't been able to access all that power up till now because of the older inefficient code in Final Cut Pro 7. With Final Cut Pro X, that changes in a huge way. Pair up the power of your GPU using OpenCL with a big allocation of RAM and a bunch of Intel cores which are efficiently distributed with Grand Central Dispatch technology--and you have a recipe for one of the most powerful editing systems ever made.”

"Preparing for Final Cut Pro X" is an 18-page PDF download. The paper is free and interested readers can navigate to the paper through the Silverado homepage or link directly to the registration page here: http://silverado.cc/shop/pages.php?pageid=36

MusicRevolution.com Celebrates One-Year Anniversary With Free Royalty-Free Music Collection

MusicRevolution.com, an innovative online marketplace for production music, today announced the offering of a collection of free royalty-free music to celebrate the one year anniversary since its successful launch.

"Just over one year ago, Mike Bielenberg and I launched MusicRevolution.com. Our vision was to create the kind of website and production music library that was too innovative and too forward-thinking to be created quickly by some big stock media company," stated Chris Cardell, Co-Founder of MusicRevolution LLC. "Thanks to the hundreds of extraordinary musicians who have contributed over 12,000 (and growing) amazing tracks, MusicRevolution.com is a reality", added Cardell.

"Our production music library continues to grow, both in terms of the number of contributing professional musicians and the number of high-quality, royalty-free production music tracks. The quality and depth of our musicians and production music is outstanding," stated Mike Bielenberg, Co-Founder of MusicRevolution LLC. "As a result, media producers, video producers, filmmakers and music buyers are able to access the best and the latest production music at MusicRevolution.com. Every week we earn new customers who tell us this music library is amazing," added Bielenberg.

To mark the anniversary of our 2010 launch, MusicRevolution.com has created this page of royalty-free music tracks that are absolutely free to use: http://www.musicrevolution.com/free_production_music/

Most of these tracks were written and produced by Mike Bielenberg for clients such as IBM, Microsoft and the Georgia Department of Tourism, among others. These royalty-free music tracks are free for use in your film, broadcast, web, on hold, physical media, video productions or other commercial applications in accordance with MusicRevolution's Standard License Agreement http://www.musicrevolution.com/license_terms/. They are provided to you as a download in MP3 format (192 kbps). In return for this free stock music license, MusicRevolution kindly requests that you credit us somewhere on your website or elsewhere.
