Creative Network Design Announces NetMix ProIntegration with Pro Tools creates fastest sound management system (February 11, 2005)
Creative Network Design, a leading sound and audio software developer, today announced that its flagship NetMix Pro Sound Library Management software will offer a Windows XP integration with Avid Pro Tools. The integrated solution enables Pro Tools and Avid editors to search for sound effects and production music quickly, and transfer sounds with the click of a button into Pro Tools, Avid and many other editing environments.
Developed in conjunction with Academy Award-winning music and sound supervisors, the NetMix-Pro Tools XP integration will be demonstrated in the Avid Booth #SL600 at NAB 2005, in both the Digidesign and Avid Developer demonstration areas.
NetMix Pro is the world's first and only solution that provides real-time multitrack mixing and editing of digital audio streamed from local, network storage and Internet. With NetMix Pro 3.2, users can search, audition, track, and manage audio files with unprecedented ease. The NetMix Pro-Pro Tools integration is the only editing solution that enables the creation of company-wide metadata structures, for greater interoperability and security.
?NetMix Pro provides Pro Tools users with unprecedented creative power for complex audio and sound mixing, said Markus Schmidt, founder and president of Creative Network Design. ?There is no wall between stored audio assets and Pro Tools elements; users can simply drag and drop into mixes as they see fit. With greater emphasis on contextual audio in advertising, film, and television, the combined NetMix Pro-Pro Tools integration gives producers real-time integration for their projects.
With NetMix Pro 3.2, users can preview complex sounds or music edits before importing the audio directly into ProTools, providing increased production efficiency and creativity. A cross-platform tool, NetMix Pro offers bin-to-bin transfer capability with lightning-fast Boolean search and spot to Pro Tools timeline functions.
NetMix Metabase Server is a multi-SQL database which enables workstations to gain simultaneous access to large central libraries of sound effects and production music. A server-based sound library, for example, can be accessed over a LAN or the Internet. Using MediaLock, the NetMix Metabase Server can protect media assets against uncontrolled copying through central and secure logging of all transfers.
Users can add unlimited database fields, unlimited metadata fields, and NetMix automatically updates embedded metadata when new fields are added to the Metabase Server.
With playback up to 24 bit and 192 kHz, NetMix Pro can be scaled up to 100 users with a customizable server database.
NetMix Pro is bundled with the following features:
NetMix Pro Project Manager, which:
- transfers all sounds to into Pro Tools, including metadata
- spots all sounds and multitrack clips to picture, with notes
- import EDLs, rebalance scenes, cut-copy-paste scenes/spots
- enables DV movie sync spotting
The NetMix Pro Multitrack Editor can play, edit and mix multiple audio files with different file formats from different storage systems simultaneously. NetMix Pro also features loop, real time pitch-shift.
Searching the NetMix database is easy and powerful with the ability to assign sounds to separate tracks in the NetMix Pro Multitrack Editor.
Users can pre-stage a complex sound or music edit in sync to picture using volume, pan, mute, solo-in-place, multitrack-scrubbing, waveform editing and timecode display. NetMix Pro automatically converts and spots the audio to specific timecodes on to ProTools tracks, maintaining all previously made edits.
NetMix Pro 3.2 requires a minimum configuration of Mac OS 9.2.2, 10.2, or 10.3; Windows 2000 or Windows XP; 512 MB RAM; a sound card, and a network adapter. NetMix Pro transfers and spots to FinalCut Pro, Nuendo, Logic, Toast, Pro Tools and many other leading sound and audio creation software tools.
NetMix Pro can be purchased online from Creative Network Designs online store for $549.00 USD.
