Sonomic + Soundminer = Convergence in Sound Management

Landmark partnership between industry leaders promises to reshape the audio asset management industry (October 18, 2008)

DDMN Newswire--2008-10-19-- Soundminer, the world's most respected audio asset manager, and Sonomic, the world's largest library of downloadable sound effects, samples, and royalty-free music, today announced the release of Soundminer 4.1.8, featuring the ability to search, preview, and download directly from Sonomic's 250,000 sound library.

While accessing Sonomic with a standard web browser is fast and easy, it's even faster and easier with Soundminer.  Soundminer treats Sonomic's online database just like one of its own: users can search Sonomic with Soundminer's renowned search engine and preview all Sonomic sounds with waveform overviews and varispeed playback. V4 users can also spot Sonomic sounds directly into the active DAW session and V4pro users can even add plug-ins to Sonomic sounds on the fly.   All Soundminer products can download both individual sounds and entire Downloadable CDs from Sonomic with just a single click.  Best of all, every Sonomic sound downloaded with Soundminer is automatically databased on the user's workstation, so it can be found again instantly at any time.

"There are really two parts to the sound management equation," says Adam Strauss, Sonomic's CEO. "First, how do you organize, find, and edit the sounds in your library, and second, how do you get new sounds.  By working together, Sonomic and Soundminer can address both these components more efficiently than ever before.  This benefits both companies, since each can focus on its core competency, but more importantly, it benefits the customers.  Soundminer clients can now get new sounds from Sound Ideas, BBC, Zero-G, and many other top libraries, all without ever leaving the Soundminer application.  Sonomic's customers now have a more powerful interface for accessing Sonomic and managing their local libraries.  It's truly a win-win for everyone."


"Soundminer has a rich history of leading this market segment in both features and technology" says Soundminer Inc. President Steve Pecile, "and both technology and market conditions have converged to allow for this kind of integration.  This is a great thing for all our users."

Sonomic connectivity is included in v4.1.6, which is a free update for all Macintosh v4 products, and will be included in free updates for Soundminer XP and Miniminer in the near future.
