Synk Audio Announces Musicbed DV 1.2 and Season OneCustomizable Cinematic Stock Music and Software for Mac OS X (March 21, 2006)
Chicago, Illinois, March 21, 2006 - Synk Audio today announced their Musicbed DV 1.2 and Season One bundle. Musicbed DV is a Mac OS X application that allows visual media professionals to flexibly modify stock music to fit the timing and mood of video projects. Musicbed DV includes non-linear music clip editing features and the unique ability to keyframe high-level music characteristics, such as intensity, foreground presence, and background ambience. Season One is an expansive resource of cinematic music beds produced for use with Musicbed DV.
Musicbed DV offers an innovative music clip browser that allows video pros to browse by story genres/moods, music style, texture, tempo, and pitch, while previewing the music in real-time to video. This browsing feature makes quick work of finding just the right music clip for any video sequence needing a cinema quality music bed.
When a music clip is added to the Musicbed DV timeline, the application provides independent control over the music clip's start and end time, while creating an evolving music bed that fits it's duration. Advanced features provide control over the location of musical transitions, for the accenting of scene changes and other edits.
However, the unique advantage that Musicbed DV offers is the ability to keyframe high-level music characteristics, and it does so with surprising ease-of-use. For instance, it's simple to accent a title or other edits with a punch in the music's overall intensity/density with a couple of keyframes. It's equally easy to underscore subtle changes in mood with a musical background ambience in just several more keyframes.
Season One is a vast cinematic music bed resource, encoded from over 11 GB of digital audio, and with style and texture parameters controlling over 2500 non-linear audio tracks under-the-hood. There are tens of thousands of music theme variations and an infinite number of time-based variations using Musicbed DV's easy-to-use style and texture automation features.
Season One's major contributor is Rom Di Prisco, whose credits include "The Sopranos", "America's Next Top Model", "MTV Cribs", "SSX Tricky" (EA Big), "Blair Witch Experience" (Artisan Entertainment), and "Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit 2" (Electronic Arts).
All of Season One is available as stereo mixes, instrumental stems, and surround music at any custom duration. Season One is available under a royalty-free license.
